Lesson

All those persons, who know history, writers and compilers of history, give evidence and they are unanimous in their opinion that Muhammad (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), being a mankind, had more knowledge and wisdom than entire human beings of the world. Whichever opinion was expressed by Him after observing the circumstances, was the best judgment.
Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) used to escape from needless and absurd matters. The gaiety used to drip from His Visage. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was cheerful, used to like silence and remain silent. He used to remember the Creator and Lord of the world. The word “Allah” did already exist in Arab. But His (God’s) conception in the heart of Muhammad (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was different from others.

 

He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) used to consider that “Allah” is One. He is not necessitous of any other. He is Knower, Hearer, Viewer and Wise. Muhammad (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) used to remember Him with his tongue quietly and supplicate for Guidance. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was sociable and merry, and used to accept the Right immediately.

 

In human rights, all people were equal near to Muhammad (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam), whether they were relatives or strangers, powerful or weak, rich or poor. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) used to love the miserable, and did not consider that the insolent were contemptible due to their poverty.

 

He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was never overawed by the kings or the despotic, and neither did He fear due to someone’s being vigorous. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) used to serve the gentle people and those who had good habits, and fascinate the hearts of the visitors. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) did not use to go back from him who used to come for meeting until the visitor wish to go away.

 

He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) used to ask the circumstances of His visitors and find out general circumstances of the public from the people. He used to do His work Himself i.e. milking the cattle Himself, repairing His shoes himself, patching His clothes Himself, and did not use to consider shame in using repaired shoes and patched clothes.

 

It is mentioned in the Sayings (Ahaadith) that Messenger of Allah Almighty (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) did never eat bellyful, even the bread of barley; until departure from this world. At His home, it never happened that the fire is kindled continuously, even sometimes; it was set after one month and sometimes after two months.

 

He used to take a few dates and water as food for living. Sometimes He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) tied stones on belly due to severity of hunger. He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was ready every time to help others, but never asked anyone to help Him (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam). He used to treat the people as humanity, whether those were own people or strangers.

 

Every individual (superiors and inferiors) used to acknowledge His politeness, trust, honesty and justice. Why did He have to fight besides having such higher virtues? He (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) was not desirous of authority. He was fond of giving something to others instead of snatching something from the deserving person.

 

His (SallAllaahu alayHi wa AaliHii Wasallam) manner was sympathy and kindness with every human being. It is obvious that such generous and affectionate person cannot be content to molest someone else. Even then; He had to fight but why? He fought only for the reason that the Infidels of Makkah were indiscreet and unintelligent.

Surah ‘TAWBAH or BARAAA-‘AH (REPENTANCE) – Chapter – 9)

Lesson

At the end of the subject Chapter, summary of the manners of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) has been described. That all was according to these virtues, whatsoever He performed in the life of this world, even that, His war against His enemies was also based on these ethics. His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) Battles were neither like robbers or plunderers, and nor for exercising authority over other people as a king, but to establish the life of peace and safety in the world and betterment/welfare of the humankind.

 

It was not His aim that He should inspire with awe by shedding blood of the human beings and they should be made slaves of Him forcibly, and they should be compelled to obey His every commandment; accepting Him as a king, and they should continue to provide the worldly things of luxurious enjoyment for Him.

 

That period, when He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was sent in the world as an appointed Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him), was extremely of tyranny and oppression. In the whole world, there did exist such people in every country who were selfish, slaves of their wishes and very fond of luxurious enjoyments. Oppressive people used to choose any tyrant and rebellious person as their leader and support him by establishing their own group. And they used to compel the public to provide the things for pleasantness of their life by saying him their king and using his name. And they used to treat the public as animals. The aim of every powerful person was to keep the subordinates under influence. The creature of the Creator (Allah Almighty) had been entangled in the paws of the tyrants. The humanity was near to end and the strong people wished to eat up the feeble totally and weak people; becoming blood-thirsty ravenous and fight those who were equal to them for snatching their prey. And everyone began to increase his strength and there was no other work for mankind save a general massacre and pillage, robbing, plundering and ravaging in the world.

 

Nature of the Messenger of Allah Almighty (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) was quite against the refractory people. His morality began to become according to natural temperament automatically; and protection of Allah Almighty was with him at every step. From the very beginning, He saw the universe from such angle, which was totally separate from the point of view of such people who had been entangled in worldly matters. He beheld that if the human being have to live in this world, for it, this is not the way, which has been spread in the public.

 

He used to search that way which should provide security to the human life and save his soul from confusion, restlessness and disturbance, not only ordinarily, but permanently. He did not find any such person in the world who might guide Him for this purpose. At that time, His (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) mind inclined more towards the loneliness. And for which object, the Supreme Physician (Allah Almighty) had sent him in the world with His especial Mercy, He (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) began to complete that task.
