  • A thread dedicated to the Mercy For The Worlds; Muhammad, peace be upon him.

    Assalamu Alaikum

    InshAllah, everyone can contribute to this thread:up:

    'SURELY YOU ARE AT THE HEIGHT OF GREAT MANNERS.' (68:4)

    Hadhrat Abu Hurairah once exclaimed,'Oh prophet of Allah!curse the idolaters!'
    The prophet peace be upon him replied,'I have not been sent as a curser,but i have been sent as a mercy.'(Muslim) This is confirmed by
    the quranic verse,'WE SENT THEE NOT,BUT AS A MERCY FOR ALL CREATURES.'(21:107)In this verse of the Holy Quran,Allah mentions
    the elevated morals and esteemed character of the prophet,and why not?The ethics and characteristics the prophet peace be upon him
    are worthy of being written in gold ink and remembered until the last day.It is stated in Bukhari and muslim on the authority of Hadhrat Anas
    that the prophet was the most beautiful,the most generous and the bravest.The qualities of the prophet peace be upon him are such that it would
    take many volumes to enlist them all.It was by observing these supreme morals and manners that people flowed into the fold of islam in vast numbers.

    In this very verse of the holy Quran,Allah summarises the great manners of his beloved prophet.His manners,morals,characteristics and etiquettes
    were complete to perfection in every style and manner.No stone was left unturned in the testing of the prophet muhammad to the extreme.It was our prophet
    who the people mocked in Makkah,yet when the victory of Makkah came it was this very prophet who had his head down in humility,offering all amnesty
    to all who entered the ka'aba and the house of Abu Sufyan,who was known as an enemy of islam.prior to this occasion.

    To say that the prophet peace be upon him was humbled by misfortune to spare his enemies is not merely denial of history and reality but
    at the same time it is ignorance of the acknowledgement of every historian that has recorded the arabian civilisation.Many historians admit
    that had not the prophet been blessed with such virtuous morals,the inclination of the masses that turned towards his message would have been impossible.
    To this,the Quran says,'AND BY THE MERCY OF ALLAH,YOU DEALT WITH THEM GENTLY.AND HAD YOU BEEN SEVERE AND HARSH HEARTED,THEY WOULD
    HAVE BROKEN AWAY FROM YOU.'(3:159)At the campaign of Tabuk,when the prophet and his companions camped to take rest,a man from the enemy
    quietly neared the prophet and whilst handling his sword,asked,'Who will save you from me?' The prophet replied,'Allah will save me.'
    The man began to tremble and dropped the sword.The prophet caught the sword and asked,'Now who will save you from me?'The man
    begged for forgiveness (by this time,the sahabah had gathered round) and the prophet peace be upon him pardoned the man.

    The story of Taif is no myth.A seriously injured person today would gladly avenge his enemy but yet the mercy of the prophet peace be upon him could not
    bear himself being the means of a thorn pr icking a person,let alone be the means of the destruction of a nation.Look back to the time when Wahshi(who mur dered the prophets uncle Hadhrat Hamza)came to the prophet.The very person who had perpetrated such enmity to his family would
    not pass through ones thoughts without bitter h8red,let alone what would be done to him if he was present.Nevertheless,the mercy of our beloved prophet can never be put to test;look at the example of perfection;the prophet pardoned him and gracefully allowed him to enter the fold of islam.

    This example set by the prophet peace be upon him was set so that we can follow his lifestyle and not the lifestyle of the singers and footballers of today.
    we have to wake up from our sleep and follow the best lifestyle which will lead to our success in both worlds.No doubt,
    prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was at the pinnacale of great manners;who can deny it?

    'Those who follow the apostle;the unlettered prophet whom they find written down with them in the Torah
    and Injil;he biddeth them to the good and prohibiteth unto them the evil,alloweth unto them things clean
    and forbiddeth unto them things unclean and relieveth them of their burden,and shackles which have been
    upon them.Those who believe in him and side with him and succor him and follow the light which hath been
    sent down with him;they shall fare well.' (7:157)

    His Humility

    It is related on the authority of Hadhrat Umar that the prophet peace be upon him said:

    'O Muslim!Do not extol my merits unduly in the way the chrisitians have praised Jesus.I
    am only a servant of Allah and his Apostle.'
    (Tirmidhi)

    He is the best of MANKIND.subhanAllah^

      Opinions of Non-Muslims on Prophet Muhammad

      Michael H.Hart in his book on ratings of men,he ranked Muhammad peace be upon him first on the list,
      who contributed to the benefit and uplift of mankind:
      'My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the worlds most influential persons may surprise
      some readers & maybe questioned by others,but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful
      on both the religious and secular levels.'
      (M.H Hart,The 100:A ranking of the most influential persons in history,p. 33)

      Many non-muslims had such a appreciation and love of the prophet Muhammad,its sad to see muslims like
      ourselves not showing enough appreciation for the best of mankind,who bought Islam to us through the Almighty.

      Thomas Carlyle,in his 'Heroes & Hero-worship' was simply amazed as to:

      'How one man single handedly,could weld warring tribes wandering bedouins in to
      a most powerful and civilized nation in less than two decades.'

      'The lies (western slander) which well-meaning zeal has heaped around this man (Muhammad)
      are disgraceful to ourselves only.'

      'A silent great soul,one of that who cannot but be earnest.He was to kindle the world,the
      worlds maker had ordered so.'

      (Thomas Carlyle in his HEROES AND HERO-WORSHIP)

      Diwan Chand Sharma wrote:

      'Muhammad was the soul of kindness,
      and his influence was felt and never forgotten by those around him.'
      (D.C Sharma;THE PROPHETS OF THE EAST,p.12)

        O Allah! grant him a blessing by which chests will be expanded, and by which problems will be rendered insignificant, and by which the veils will be removed and grant him abundant peace lasting until the Day of Judgement!:inlove:

          Re: A thread dedicated to the Mercy For The Worlds; Muhammad, peace be upon him.

          Allah ta’ala has praised the Prophet in the best manner by His words, "There has come to you a Messenger from among yourselves, who grieves over your discomforts, full of concern for you, compassionate and merciful to those who believe”.

          Shaykh Abdullahi Dan Fodio said: "In this verse is an indication that his people in Mecca were thoroughly aware of his nobility (sharafahu) and kindness (fadlahu) towards them, his truthfulness (sidqahu), integrity (amaanatahu), his sincere advice to them (naseehatahu lahum), and his concern in guiding them. They were aware of the intensity of dislike for what distresses them in this world and the Hereafter and his compassion and mercy towards those who believe. For He honored him by giving him two of His own names: the compassionate and the merciful (ra'uf, rahim)."

          Allah ta’ala has further praised him, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, by His words, "Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah."

          Again Shaykh Abdullahi Dan Fodio said: "Allah knew of the weakness of mankind in obeying Him of their own power, thus He set up between Him and them a created being from among their own species. He ta’ala invested this created being with some of His qualities of compassion (ar-ra'afa) and mercy (ar-rahma). He then made obedience to him like obedience to Himself. "

          Allah ta‘ala has praised him further by His words; "We have not sent you except as a mercy to all the worlds."

          Therefore, whomever any aspect of his mercy touches is saved in both worlds. He, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is ‘a mercy to all the worlds' meaning to both the jinn and mankind. Some of the scholars say that this verse means that he, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, is a mercy to the entire creation including every atom. This is because he, may Allah bless him and grant him peace was the causative factor for the creation of existence.

          He, may Allah bless him and grant him peace is a mercy to the believers by guiding them, a mercy to the hypocrites (who conceal their hypocrisy) by granting them security from being killed, and a mercy to the disbelievers by deferring their Eternal punishment (through jizya and truce).

          It has been related that the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said to Jibril, "Has any of this mercy touched you?” He replied, "Yes, I used to fear what would happen to me, but now I feel safe because of the way Allah praised me when He revealed to you. 'Possessing power, secure with the Lord of the Throne, obeyed, then trusting'. "

          It was said about His words, "If you were to try enumerating the blessings of Allah, you could not count them”. It is said His blessings (ni’ma) means Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and the like of what we have mentioned from the Qur'anic verse. And Allah gives success in arriving at the truth.

            WHO IS A POOR MAN?

            Hadhrat Abu Hurairah relates that the Holy Prophet peace be upon him asked the companions:
            'Do you know who is a poor man?'
            The companions answered:
            'He who has neither money nor property is poor in our eyes.'

            The Holy Prophet said:'The poor man amongst my people is he who shall come with an abundant amount
            of prayers,fasts and charity on the day of judgement,but who would also have abused someone,produced false
            charges against an individual,stole someones belongings,or beaten or killled a person.'

            The complaints of the oppressed people will be heard by Allah and a case made out for each of them.
            The wrongs they suffered will be made amends for by the good deeds of the wrongdoers.On the day of judgement
            the good deeds of the individuals shall be the currency,with which the dues shall be paid.

            the beauty of His teachings...

              My eyes have never seen anyone;
              More handsome than you;
              No woman has ever given birth
              To one more beauteous than you.
              You have been created free from
              all blemishes.
              As if,you have been created
              In consonance with
              Your own wishes.

              Hassaan Bin Thaabit on Muhammad,peace be upon him.

                Re: A thread dedicated to the Mercy For The Worlds; Muhammad, peace be upon him.

                He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without Pope's pretensions, Caesar without the legions of Caesar: without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue; if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammed, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports."
                Bosworth Smith, MOHAMMAD AND MOHAMMADANISM, London, 1874, p. 92.


                "In all things Muhammad was profoundly practical. When his beloved son Ibrahim died, an eclipse occurred, and rumours of God's personal condolence quickly arose. Whereupon Muhammad is said to have announced, "An eclipse is a phenomenon of nature. It is foolish to attribute such things to the death or birth of a human being." "At Muhammad's own death an attempt was made to deify him, but the man who was to become his administrative successor killed the hysteria with one of the noblest speeches in religious history: "If there are any among you who worshipped Muhammad, he is dead. But if it is God you worshipped, He lives forever."
                James A. Michener, "ISLAM: THE MISUNDERSTOOD RELIGION," in READER'S DIGEST (American edition), May 1955, pp. 68-70.

                "If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could dare to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples and dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the then inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and souls. . . his forbearance in victory, his ambition, which was entirely devoted to one idea and in no manner striving for an empire; his endless prayers, his mystic conversations with God, his death and his triumph after death; all these attest not to an imposture but to a firm conviction which gave him the power to restore a dogma. This dogma was twofold, the unity of God and the immateriality of God; the former telling what God is, the latter telling what God is not; the one overthrowing false gods with the sword, the other starting an idea with words.

                "Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?"
                Lamartine, HISTOIRE DE LA TURQUIE, Paris, 1854, Vol. II, pp. 276-277.

                  Re: A thread dedicated to the Mercy For The Worlds; Muhammad, peace be upon him.

                  The world we live in is no longer a place of mercy.When mercy does not exist,people destroy each other.It is the foundation of our existence.The importance of mercy cannot be underestimated.
                  The concept of mercy pervades through Islam.At the centre of it is Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.He inspired a people who were in the darkness of ignorance to reach the heights of nobleness.

                  Regarding him,Allah Ta'ala states:

                  We have not sent you but as a mercy to mankind.
                  (21:107)


                  He is a mercy for Muslims,non-muslims,animals and all that exists in this world.His message is universal;it is for all ages and nations.His every word and action is a lesson for us.Upon migrating from Makkah to Medinah,what were his first words?

                  O people!Make the act of greeting common practice,provide food,maintain ties of kinship and pray while people are asleep-you shall enter Paradise in safety.
                  (Tirmidhi)

                  These are means of peace and harmony being spread amongst communities.

                  Therefore,we must endeavor to embody his character and become ambassadors of Islam.It is hoped that in this age of confusion the prophets character will be recognised as the guiding light that it is.

                      By nature he was gentle and kind hearted, always inclined to be gracious and to overlook the faults of others. Politeness and courtesy, compassion and tenderness, simplicity and humility, sympathy and sincerity were some of the keynotes of his character. In the cause of right and justice he could be resolute and severe but more often than not, his severity was tempered with generosity. He had charming manners which won him the affection of his followers and secured their devotion. Though virtual king of Arabia and an apostle of Allah, he never assumed an air of superiority. Not that he had to conceal any such vein by practice and artifice: with fear of Allah, sincere humility was ingrained in his heart. He used to say,

                      "I am a Prophet of Allah but I do not know what will be my end." (Bukhari, Sahih Bukhari, Chapter "Al-Janaiz")

                      In one of his sermons calculated to instill the fear of Allah and the day of reckoning in the hearts of men, he said,

                      "O people of Quraish be prepared for the hereafter, I cannot save you from the punishment of Allah; O Bani Abd Manaf, I cannot save you from Allah; O Abbas, son of Abdul Mutalib, I cannot protect you either; O Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, even you I cannot save." (Sahahin)

                      He used to pray,

                      "O Allah! I am but a man. If I hurt any one in any manner, then forgive me and do not punish me." (Ahmed, Musnad, Vol. 6 pg. 103)

                        Mecca had been conquered and the prophet peace be upon him was travelling back to Medinah. Thousands followed him and all were eager to hear a message from his mouth.

                        On the way, the time for Asr prayer arrived. The prophet peace be upon him performed ablution, men flocked around him and rubbed their faces with the water that he used for ablution.

                        Wudhu over, the prophet asked those around him, 'friends,why do you rub your faces with that water?'
                        'To show our love and respect for you.' was the answer.
                        The prophet peace be upon him gravely said, ' If you really love me, then walk in my footsteps and accept my ideal. Those who show me only outward respect and do not accept my example, do not belong to my following.'

                          Touched by the breath of the unlettered one,
                          The sands of Arabia began to sprout tulips.
                          Freedom under his care was reared
                          The ‘today’ of nations comes from his ‘yesterday’.
                          He put heart in the body of man,
                          And from his face the veil he lifted.
                          Every god of old he destroyed.
                          Every withered branch by his moisture bloomed.
                          The heat of the battle of Badr and Hunain,
                          Haider and Siddiq, Farooq and Hussain.

                          In the thick of battle the majesty of Azan,
                          The recitation of As-Saffat28 at the point of sword.
                          The scimitar of Ayub, the glance of Bayazid,
                          Key to the treasures of this world and the next.
                          Ecstasy of heart and mind from the same goblet,
                          Fusion of Rumi’s rapture and Razi’s thought.
                          Knowledge and wisdom, faith and law, polity and rule.
                          Yearnings hidden within the restless hearts.
                          Al-Hamara and Taj of beauty breath-taking.
                          To which even angels pay tribute.
                          These, too, a fragment of his priceless bequest,
                          Of his glimpses just one glimpse.
                          His exterior these enthralling sights,
                          Of his interior even the knowledge unaware.
                          Boundless praise be to the Apostle blessed,
                          Who imparted faith to elevate a handful of dust.
                          --->My favorite part...its just WOW
