Introduction Of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born in Mecca Saudi Arabia at 570CE. HE (PBUH) is the founder of Islam. He (PBUH) is the role model for all of his followers. HE (PBUH) was perfect in every aspect of his life. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was orphaned at six years old. He (PBUH) was raised by his uncle Abu Talib. At the age of 40, He received his first revelation from God (Allah). Three years later Muhammad started preaching these revelations publically. He (PBUH) died at 8 June 632 (aged c. 62) Medina, Hejaz, Arabia
(present-day Saudi Arabia)

Teacher Of Mankind

Holy Prophet (PBUH) was always overflowing with knowledge, He (PBUH) was a very kind, informative, and supportive person. He teaches people in a very loving manner. There was not, and there cannot ever be the best teacher ever but only Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He (PBUH) is the role model for all of us. He (PBUH) did not waste time in useless talks. He always remained thankful to Allah and taught yo his followers the same. He never fully satisfied his hunger and complained about anything. He (PBUH) never distinguished himself and used to sit with his companions.

“O Messenger of God, I will slaughter the sheep,” said one of the Companions. “O Messenger of God, I will skin it,” said another. “O Messenger of God, I will cook it,” said another. “And I will gather the wood,” said Prophet Muhammad. They said: “O Messenger of God, we will spare your work.” He said: “I know you can spare me (work), but I hate to be distinguished among you. God, the Most Exalted, hates to see His servant distinguished among his Companions.”

He was in a state of continuous grief and thought (for his people). He had little rest, periods of long silence, and never spoke needlessly.

Living Example

He often lectured his companions about the oneness of Allah Almighty and to live a life according to the rules and the principles of Islam. In every aspect of life, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was an exemplar of what he taught and preacher. This made the life of his companions easy to live their lives according to Islam. As Allah clearly mentioned in Holy Quran that:

There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.” (Al-Ahzab 33:21)

If Prophet Muhammad had not lived every aspect of the Qur’an in minute detail, it would have had a derogatory effect on the level of trust that he had developed with his companions. Prophet Muhammad was a living example of the sublime morality of Allah's last revelation. He was a friend of Allah and inspired humanity by his nearness to Him. He was His representative, noble in His eyes, and a friend to all believers.

Although we have never seen the Prophet (PBUH), we can still do our very best to come to know his exemplary behavior, his sayings and the pleasing morality he displayed, by means of the verses of the Qur'an and the hadiths (the sayings and teachings of the Prophet [PBUH]). We can try to be like him, in order to be close to him in the Hereafter.

The Perfect Speaker

Most of us have come across at least one teacher that was inaudible or he spoke that fast that was next to impossible to understand what was being said. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was a teacher that has never rushed his lessons. According to his companions, he would repeat his words thrice. The perfection of Prophet Muhammad’s speech was intentional as a means to really drive the message home to each one of his students through repetition, which is an excellent learning tool. He organized his lessons in such a way that every single person got understood. According to his beloved wife Aisha, he:

….spoke in such a way that if one were to count his words, they could be counted.” (Al-Bukhari, 768)

Examples From Sunnah

The word Sunnah is used to describe the life and teaching of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Sunnah is ultimate guidance for the leading of a successful life.

Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:

“Whoever revives my Sunnah then he has loved me. And whoever loved me, he shall be with me in Paradise.” [Tirmidhi].

Our sleeping pattern plays a great role in our ability to function effectively during the day. The hours after Fajr are among the most blessed of the day. Starting the day off by praying the morning Salah sets you in the right frame of mind to be the best you can be throughout the day. The sleeping routine of our Holy Prophet (PBUH) is clearly mentioned in the below Sunnah.

Aisha said about the Prophet :

“He used to sleep early at night, and get up in its last part to pray, and then return to his bed.”

We underestimate the power of a smile on both ourselves and those around us. This characteristic is highly contagious and plays a massive role in building relationships with those around you. A positive mind and attitude are irreplaceable in the quest to be productive and achieve your goals in life.

Ibn Jaz reports: “I have not seen anyone who smiled more than the Messenger of Allah .”[Tirmidhi]
