A Man of Ultimate Consideration:
Before the birth of Prophet (peace be upon him) his father has died and when he (peace be upon him) was very young his mother also passed away. His grandfather took the responsibility of his upbringing but he also died and then Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) sent to his uncle Abu Talib for upbringing. Abu Talib was very poor so Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) decided to work with his uncle when he was only 13 because he never wanted to be a burden on the shoulder of his uncle. At an age where many young men are only thinking about themselves, the Prophet (peace be upon him) was already catching every opportunity to make the lives of others easier. He (peace be upon him) was truly a man of consideration, asking for nothing in return even in the early life of Muhammad (peace be upon him).


A Man of Mercy:

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a man who cared for the weak, supported women and stood for everyone who was in need we can say that He (peace be upon him) was a man who embraces mercy. He (peace be upon him) is the man of mercy to all mankind.Hazrat Abu Huraira said: the Prophet (PBUH) was asked to curse the infidels. He said, “I have not been sent to curse people but as a mercy to all mankind.” (Muslim).From this hadith, we can conclude that he was very kind-hearted and generous to all mankind. The Prophet’s (peace be upon him) mercy was vast and inclusive. He spread it far and wide to the point that even animals could find refuge in his kindness.


A Man of Forgiveness:

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was very forgiving even he did not say anything bad to his enemies but always forgave them. It has been narrated by Hazrat Anas bin Malik that eighty persons from the inhabitants of Makah fell down upon Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) from the mountain of Tan’im. They were armed and wanted to attack the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and his Companions unawares. He (peace be upon him) captured them but spared their lives. So, Allah Almighty revealed the verse: “And it is He Who restrained your hands from them and their hands from you in the valley of Makkah after He had given you a victory over them.”(Quran 48:24) [Muslim]. From his forgiving habit, we can also learn and can forgive others in this way our society could become a place of peace where we can live happily and peacefully with other people.

First Five people to embrace Islam:

The first Muslims, each of whom was like the representative of a class, who were honored with the bounties of belief and Islam, were as follows:

Among women, Hazrat Khadija, among children Hazrat Ali, among free men Hazrat Abu Bakr, among slaves who were freed Hazrat Zayd bin Kharisa, among slaves Hazrat Bilal Habashi (may Allah be pleased with them).



The mission of Prophet Muhammad (s) was to restore the worship of the One True God, the creator and sustainer of the universe, as taught by Prophet Ibrahim and all Prophets of God, and to demonstrate and complete the laws of moral, ethical, legal, and social conduct and all other matters of significance for the humanity at large.

The first few people who followed this message were: his cousin Ali, his servant Zayd ibn Harithah, his friend Abu Bakr and his wife and daughters. They accepted Islam by testifying that:

“There is no Deity (worthy of worship) except Allah (The One True God) and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
Islam means peace by submission and obedience to the Will and Commandments of God and those who accept Islam are called Muslims, meaning those who have accepted the message of peace by submission to God.


Narrated Abu Huraira:

While the Prophet (ﷺ) was saying something in a gathering, a Bedouin came and asked him, “When would the Hour (Doomsday) take place?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) continued his talk, so some people said that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) had heard the question, but did not like what that Bedouin had asked. Some of them said that Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) had not heard it. When the Prophet (ﷺ) finished his speech, he said, “Where is the questioner, who inquired about the Hour (Doomsday)?” The Bedouin said, “I am here, O Allah’s Apostle .” Then the Prophet (ﷺ) said, “When honesty is lost, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday).” The Bedouin said, “How will that be lost?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “When the power or authority comes in the hands of unfit persons, then wait for the Hour (Doomsday.)”


Narrated Ibn `Umar:

The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Amongst the trees, there is a tree, the leaves of which do not fall and is like a Muslim. Tell me the name of that tree.” Everybody started thinking about the trees of the desert areas. And I thought of the date-palm tree. The others then asked, “Please inform us what is that tree, O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)?” He replied, “It is the date-palm tree.”



The Prophet (peace be upon him) Died At Age Sixty Three:

Volume 5, Book 58, Number 190: Narrated Ibn ‘Abbas:

Allah’s Apostle was inspired Divinely at the age of forty. Then he stayed in Mecca for thirteen years, and then was ordered to migrate, and he migrated to Medina and stayed there for ten years and then died.
