The distinctive Virtues of the Holy Prophet Muhammad

The holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) is the last Prophet of Islam and after him there will be no other to follow. He was born in the holy city of Makkah Mukarramah in approximately 570 A.D. Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) nurtured him to the immense quality of Prophet-hood at the age of 40. The holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) preached the holy religion of Islam for approximately more than 23 years. Out of these particular 23 years, he propagated Islam in Makkah for 13 years and the remaining 10 years in the holy city of Madina-tul-Munawwarah. He passed away at the age of 63 in Madina-tul-Munawwarah and at that time the complete Arabian territory had accepted Islam.

The perception of kindness and forgiveness was virtually anonymous to Arabs. But the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) was ultimately very generous to everybody even to his inferior adversary. He would never talk in a loud tone with anyone, esteemed the seniors and adored the children. During that appropriate time slaves were cruelly handled by their masters and were not provided even the essential rights. The holy prophet’s (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) attitude with his slaves was completely opposite compared to that of other citizens of Makkah and he handled them with kindness and forgiveness.

The holy Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) is the utmost greatest man amongst all and the very last Prophet of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). Books of facts, museums and even libraries have been devoted to present the narratives of this Great The Holy Prophet Muhammad& Noble man. Keeping in mind the characteristic and guidance of the dearest Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) testified to by so many people during the history and ultimately testified to by Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) Himself; we can attain the following to be just an incomplete list of the characteristic, personal principles and righteousness of holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ).
The dearest prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) is the perfect role model for all mankind. Among his exceptional principles and attributes, he was an exceptional husband, a splendid father, and an honored grandfather. He was also a tremendous law-maker, an authority and a religious leader. His greatest extraordinary quality was that he was an attraction to all in both words and deeds.

He animated rule of law, tenderness and excellence in all those situated around him. He advanced the influence of fraternity to the intensity that it became noteworthy in Islamic history. Declaring that these impressive qualities were granted on him by Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and that He groomed His noble & dearest prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) to call for the legitimate religion which is a part of one’s faith.

He was un-doubtfully the utmost honest of mankind, the most factual, the gracious and the most dignified. All those witnessing him for the very first time were astonished but those who recognize him adored him. A describer say’s,” I have never witnessed someone like him before and nor will surely I after him.”

Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) blessed His dearest & noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) with cultivated beauty and charm and advanced upon him tenderness and prestige.

Sayyed-nah Abbu Huraarah describes the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and states: “He was on the tall side of medium, with a very spiritual white skin. His hair was dark and curly touching shoulder length and he had excellent teeth. His eyelashes were long and his shoulders wide physically. He went on to say, I have never witnessed such a beautiful man like him before or since.”

Surprising wondrous signs after birth of Prophet Muhammad

Milad-un-Nabi means “Birth of the blessed prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ).” Muslims may also use the words Mawleed-un-Nabi, Mawleed Al Shareef or Milaad Shareef. The holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) was born on Monday the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal at dawn, which coincides to the 20th April 570 A.D approximately.

Instantly after birth, the light personified, Noble Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) prostrated to Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and narrated clearly: “I swear that there is none deserving of worship other than Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). I am Muhammad, the last prophet of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ). O divine master of the Universe sanctify me and also those who pursue me.” Instantly Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) discoursed and replied: “I have sanctified you my dearest and your followers.”

The daughter of Abdul Muttalib (Safiya) states: “I have witnessed a great personified light shimmering upon earth the night the holy Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) was born. That particular night, I observed six noticeable signs. The first among them was that the moment the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) was born he bent down his head to perform a prostration. The second among them was that he rose up his blessed head and voiced openly and clearly: (لَا اِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللہ اِنِّی رَسُوْلُ اللہِ) “None deserving of worship other than Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and I am the last prophet of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ)”. The third among them was a great personified light which was illustrated upon the universe. The fourth occurred when I desired to disinfect the holy child, I overheard words stating to me that voiced “Safiya do not unrest yourself, we have before now disinfected and purified him.’ The fifth sign among them was that he was born circumcised, and his navel cord was already cut. The sixth sign among them was I witnessed upon his back a strange mark which read the words: (لَا اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللَّهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اللَّهِ) None deserving of worship except Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) and Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) is the last Messenger of Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ).”

Safiya also stated, “When the holy prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) prostrated to Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ), he uttered some words in secret. I lowered my ear to his sanctified lips to hear what he was stating and I overheard him say: ‘Rabbi Habli Ummatiy, Rabbi Habli Ummatiy (Forgive my Ummah, Forgive my Ummah).”

We should specially focus on this particular point very carefully… Only our blessed prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) of matchless qualities started praying to Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) from the very brief moment he was born, pleading Him only for our well-being, for the well-being of his Ummah and his devotees. Still we are in drastic need of his blessings and mediation in this world and especially on the compensation day. We have become extremely poor in our prayers and in fulfilling of his beautiful ways, his lovely (Sunnah).
