The Prophet’s High Morals




Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) had granted his Messenger (PBUH) both the beauty of appearance and the beauty of the morals. Whoever meets him can’t help but love him and whoever associates himself with him can’t help but feel intimate.

He was honored by Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) when He praised the beauty of his morals in the holy Quran saying “And surely you are indeed of a magnificent character” (Al-Qalam: 4).

His noble compan-ions had discussed his benevolent character and his great traits, so let’s listen to what they said about him.

1)His Generosity: he reached the ultimate in generosity which made the Arabs forget Hatem At-Taei who was before the ideal model of generosity. Jabir Ibn Abdullah narrated “No one had ever asked Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) anything unless he gave it to him. Once a man came asking him for charity. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) gave him a flock of sheep filling the area between two mountains. The man then returned to his folk saying: Oh my people embrace Islam for Muhammad (PBUH) gives like someone who isn›t afraid of poverty”.

2) His Patience: He had unrivaled patience. Once a Bedouin caught hold of him and gave his cloak a violent tug leaving a mark on his neck. Then, the Bedouin said to him “load these two camels of mine, for you don’t give me anything from your property or from your father’s property. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) was patient with him saying: the property is that of Allah (THE ALMIGHTY) and I am his slave I will ask you to pay me back for what you did to me on Judgment Day. The Bedouin said: No. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: Why?? The Bedouin replied: because you don’t return the bad deed for a bad deed. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) smiled and ordered to load the Bedouin’s two camels, one with barley and the other with dates”.

3) His Shyness: which never stood between him and what’s right. Abu Saeid Al-Khudri narrated “the Prophet (PBUH) was more shy than a virgin in her separate room. And if he saw a thing which he disliked, we would recognize that in his face.

4)His Humor: which was so decent in a manner that doesn’t affect his solemnity. Nu’man ibn Bashir narrated “When Abu Bakr (Aisha›s father) asked the permission of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) to come in, he heard Aisha speaking in a loud voice. So when he entered, he caught hold of her in order to slap her, and said: Do I see you raising your voice to the Apostle of Allah? Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) prevented Abu Bakr and so he went out angry. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said when Abu Bakr went out: You see I rescued you from the man. Abu Bakr waited for some days, then asked permission of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) to enter, and found that they had made peace with each other. He said to them: Bring me into your peace as you brought me into your war. Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: We have done so: we have done so”.

5) His Loyalty: which doesn’t differentiate between the living and the dead. Anas Ibn Malik narrated that when Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) was brought a gift to his wives he would say “take one to the house of so-and-so for she was a friend of Khadija (the Prophet’s 1st dead wife) and she loved her”.

The Best Civilized Principles and the Noblest Human  Feelings


After such a quick journey through the biography of the Prophet (PBUH) through which we have reviewed some of the aspects of his perfection and the signs of his beauty, such aspects and signs which hold evidence  that the most magnificent values of civilization and the noblest of hu-man feelings are clearly manifested in the biography of our noble Prophet  (PBUH). Such conclusions were proven by both the facts of history and

the rulings of the Shariah. We have chosen to deal with such a small por-tion of his biography which is related to his marriage, Jihad and merits be-cause such points were a cause of suspicion around his noble character. Otherwise, the rest of the sides of his life are as important.

This is a summary of the results that I have reached to, I put it down asking for Allah’s satisfaction and for history’s record, asking Allah the Almighty to guide the humanity which is lost in the darkness of atheism, polytheism, oppression,terrorism and decadence to the lights of belief, monotheism, security, happiness, goodness and rationality.

1)The Muslims believe that Muhammad (PBUH) is Allah’s Messenger and the last sent Prophet and that he is a human just like them. However, he is the most perfect in creation and character and that he has the highest stature with Allah the Almighty .

2)The performance of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) of his necessary hu-man functions like eating, drinking and marriage isn›t but a proof of his complete humanity which is neither a flaw nor does it degrade his high stature with Allah the Almighty .

3)The pure biography of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) is considered a school for all humanity from which all people of any kind and race and of any level of the society can reproduce what guides them to success in their endeavors.

4)The true reason for the polygyny of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) are based on great intentions and sublime purposes which are represented in what we mentioned earlier in the decrees of the Shariah, the educational, social and political rulings.

5)The purpose of the Jihad of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) was to uphold the word of Allah the Almighty and spreading his religion and liberating the peoples of the earth from oppression and persecution.

6) Because of the nobleness of his aims and the sublimity of his purposes in Jihad he had never used any unjust (unclean) means in his fights with his enemies and foes.

7) His mercy was encompassing of all: the honest, the dissolute, the be-liever, the atheist, the little and the elder. It even encompassed all crea-tures, stones, trees and animals.

8) Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) was respectful of the sacred places of the others and caring for the treaties drawn between him and the others. He had never violated any of such treaties unless with people who had them-selves breached the sanctities of Allah the Almighty and his Messenger (PBUH), or with people who have no respect for neither consanguinity nor treaty towards a believer, or with people who wanted to betray him.

9) Allah the Almighty had granted his Messenger (PBUH) the beauty of the appearance and the character to make people love him and to make them find intimacy in dealing with him alive and in dealing with the biography later.

10) In addition to all this, he was modest through all his conditions and practical in all his matters. He never faked any of his sayings or actions, on the contrary he was natural in all his traits and merits peace be upon him.
