Modesty
 
Prophet Muhammad was a perfect model of modesty and humbleness. He never spoke loudly or in an unseemly manner.

In the market, he always passed by the people quietly with a smile. Whenever he heard anything undesirable in an assembly, he did not say anything out of respect for the people, but the color of his face showed his feelings, and the Companions became cautious.

I'm confused...isn't "perfection" the term attributed to something godlike?  I thought that god was the only thing that could be perfect.

It would make more sense, i think, if you said that muhammad was the perfect example of human modesty and humbleness...but that's not what you wrote.

The Prophet, peace be upon him, was the perfect human model, as mentioned in the article
 
He set an ideal example for Muslims to follow ...
 
The details of his Sunnah, including his modesty and humbelness, gives Muslims this example

scruggs  dont you think thats a case of semantics?
 
i knew exactly what Al C intended when he wrote  that.
 
if you can admit it, he didnt write that the prophet, pbuh, was totally perfect.
 
he did write that he was a MODEL of perfection in regards to manners.
 
and according to merriem webster "model"  has this meaning.
 
"an example for imitation or emulation"
 
and the prophet, pbuh, did have exemplary manners which any of us should want to emulate.
 
 
other than that,  the learn about islam area is not an area for debate.  maybe you can start another topic about this in interreligious or something.
 
just suggesting.
And hold fast, all together to the rope of Allah and do not separate.”Âl’ Imran:103)

It never once said that he is the perfect "human" model.  It says that he is the perfect model.  And that isn't just a case of semantics, in my opinion.  But at least you weren't as defensive.

Forgiveness

It has been revealed in the Qur’an that forgiveness is a superior moral trait:

But if someone is steadfast and forgives, that is the most resolute course to follow.” (42:43)

For that reason, believers are forgiving, compassionate and tolerant people who, as revealed in the Qur’an, control their rage and pardon other people.” (3:134)

Good Neighbours

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said:

"Jibreel (Angel Gabriel) has continued to strongly recommend me to be kind to my neighbor until I thought that he would make him among my heirs."

(Hadith in Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

The Prophet's Patience
 
Throughout the period of his mission, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) experienced all manners of difficulty.

Allah advises the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) to be patient

So be patient in the face of what they say and glorify your Lord with praise before the rising of the sun and before it sets. (Quran 50:39)

Do not be grieved by what they say. All might belongs to Allah. He is the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing. (Quran 10:65)

Imam Al-Ghazali summed up the Prophet's treatment of those around him as follows:

  • Everyone thought that the Prophet honored him more. Whoever came to him could see his face.

  • He used to call his Companions by their epithets with honor, and he used to give an epithet to whoever had none.

  • He was very affectionate and kind in dealing with the people.

  • Nobody could speak loudly in his assembly.

The Prophet's human love, kind thought, and compassion, which turned those around him to true religion and warmed their hearts to faith, are that superior morality which all Muslims should seek to reproduce.

Muhammad's Love and Tolerance for Mankind

Prophet Muhammad was introduced in the Quran with these words:

And We have not sent you forth but as a mercy to mankind. (Quran 21:107)

This shows that his distinctive quality was that he was a blessing incarnate in his words and deeds.

According to a tradition recorded in a collection of hadiths, when Muhammad's opponents increased their persecution, his Companions asked him to curse them. In response, Muhammad replied:

I have not been sent to lay a curse upon humans, but rather to be a blessing to them.

His opponents continued to treat him and his Companions unjustly and cruelly, but he continued to pray for them.

Once he was so badly stoned by his enemies that he was bleeding all over his body. This happened when he went to Taif, where the Hijaz aristocracy used to while away their summer days. When he attempted to call them to Islam, instead of listening to his words of wisdom, they set the street urchins upon him, who kept chasing him till nightfall. Even at that point, when he was utterly exhausted and bleeding from head to foot, all he said was:

O my Lord, guide my people along the true path, as they are ignorant of the truth.

His heart was filled with intense love for all humankind irrespective of caste, creed, or color.

The Prophet's Justice

In the Quran, Allah (God) commands believers to:

Be upholders of justice, bearing witness for Allah alone, even against yourselves or your parents and relatives. Whether they are rich or poor, Allah is well able to look after them. Do not follow your own desires and deviate from the truth. (Quran 4:135)

Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is a great example to all mankind with the rules he imposed on Muslims, his just and tolerant attitude towards those of other religions, languages, races, and tribes, and his way of not discriminating between rich and poor, but treating everybody equally.

Mercy and Compassion

Allah's Messenger was the kindest of men and he also excelled all others in courage and valor.

He was so kindhearted that his eyes brimmed with tears at the slightest sign of inhumanity.
