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.
