The Character of The Prophet (peace be upon him)

His Followers

When analyzing the veracity of Muhammad’s prophethood, one would be remiss to limit his followers to the noble Companions. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the single most influential personality in human history (see: The 100, by Michael Hart), being imitated in the most private, or nuanced, particularities of his life.

For a millennium and a half, there has been a worldwide fascination with resembling the final Prophet, even at the cost of opposing the dominant culture or current trends.

For 1.6 billion people today, that is a small price to pay for mirroring the most ideal human being that ever lived.

David George Hogarth (d. 1927), a British scholar and archeologist, said,

“Serious or trivial, his daily behavior has instituted a canon which millions observe this day with conscious memory. No one regarded by any section of the human race as Perfect Man has ever been imitated so minutely. The conduct of the founder of Christianity has not governed the ordinary life of his followers. Moreover, no founder of a religion has left on so solitary an eminence as the Muslim apostle.”[15] ...

The Character of The Prophet (peace be upon him)

William Montgomery Watt (d. 2006), a Scottish historian and Emeritus Professor in Arabic and Islamic Studies, wrote,

“His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement – all argue his fundamental integrity.

To suppose Muhammad an imposter raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad…

Thus, not merely must we credit Muhammad with essential honesty and integrity of purpose, if we are to understand him at all; if we are to correct the errors we have inherited from the past, we must not forget that conclusive proof is a much stricter requirement than a show of plausibility, and in a matter such as this only to be attained with difficulty.”[17]

This was the immaculate personality of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, visible to those centuries and seas apart from his lifetime. It leaves no wonder why an entire generation outdid one another in emulating his smile, his selflessness, his stand for truth, and his serving humanity.

The Description of Prophet Muhammad's Humility

The Humbleness of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was exemplary.

He was the person chosen by Allah to deliver the final message to humanity; yet, he equally and wonderfully set an example of humility.

Join Ustadh Moutasem Atiya in this short talk about this beautiful quality of our beloved Prophet.

How Prophet Muhammad Handled Criticism

Criticism can be tough to deal with for even the most humble of people, particularly if it is unfair or lacking in tact. Like a knife, it often causes deep, festering wounds and divides the closest of friends.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), however, was exemplary in his ability not only to accept criticism humbly, but moreover, to use it to achieve positive results...

Prophet Muhammad: The World’s Best Teacher

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), an illiterate man, was chosen by God Almighty to be the Final Messenger and perfect teacher to Muslims.

Known as the “Living Quran”, Prophet Muhammad was charged with reciting and conveying the message of the Quran to all of mankind. However, he was no ordinary teacher. In fact, he set the ideal standard of education over a thousand years ago and the effects are still being felt today.

There are innumerable ways in which Prophet Muhammad was, and still is, the greatest teacher to have ever lived. Here are just a few! ...

Prophet Muhammad – Grateful for Every Kindness

Kindness to His Wet Nurse

Halimah heard of his marriage to Lady Khadijah. This took place when Prophet Muhammad was 25, according to the most common report, yet he might have been a few years older or younger.

She felt that she had to see him and offer her congratulations.
After all, she was like a mother to him.

He welcomed her so warmly and gave her the best reception she could have imagined. He asked her how life was like at her place. She told him that they suffered hardship as the year was one of little rain and scarce provisions.

Prophet Muhammad was poor, but his wife was rich. It was Khadijah who chose the Prophet after being very impressed with his character. Now she saw what was to her a new but highly commendable attitude, which is loyalty to those who had done him a kindness.

Yet she was aware that Halimah only breast-fed Prophet Muhammad for wages. Nevertheless, she admired Prophet Muhammad for such loyalty, and welcomed Halimah warmly.

As Halimah was about to leave, she was given a very generous gift by the newly married couple: 20 sheep, including a few young and productive ones, as well as a strong mount. Halimah went back to her people, feeling very proud of a son who has not forgotten her in her hour of need.

Prophet Muhammad’s meeting with Halimah took place many years before the start of his prophethood...

The Prophet’s Kindness and Compassion

The Prophet (peace be upon him) taught us in many ways how to think globally act locally. When we think about how much ugliness happens in the world outside or our reach, it can seem impossible to help make a change.

But the Prophet had a solution. Start being kind and taking care of those closest to you. And that compassion will spread and have an impact in the greater community and beyond.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

[…] and whoever believes in Allah and the Last Day, should be good to his neighbor. (Muslim)

If each person makes sure his or her neighbor is provided for, smiles and treats him/her with respect, and asks how he/she is doing, think of the impact this good treatment could have. We just have reach out literally to those nearest to us, then those people will reach out to those nearest to them, and so on.

Showing Compassion to the Weak in Society

Being kind to our neighbors may seem obvious, because they can return the favor. But when we are kind to those who we think will never be able to return the favor, we will start to see real change in society...

The Story of the Prophet and the Jewish Boy

Prophet Muhammad was paying visit to a sick person who was very dear to him. He was visiting a Jewish boy who had been working for him as his personal servant. The boy used to bring Prophet Muhammad water for his ablutions, get him his sandals, and run errands for him.

On this day, the Prophet was troubled by the boy’s absence, so he went to his home to visit him in his illness and inquire after him.

He went inside and sat near to the boy’s head. The boy’s father sat across from him. The Prophet (peace be upon him) looked upon the boy with compassion, sad to see him dying at such a young age...

How Well Do You Know the Prophet Muhammad?

In his teens, Muhammad (peace be upon him) sometimes traveled with Abu Talib, accompanying caravans to trade centers. On at least one occasion, he traveled as far north as Syria. Older merchants recognized his character and nicknamed him Al-Amin, the one you can trust. Even in his youth they called him “the truthful, the trustworthy”.

One story that most Islamic scholars and historians accept is the account of one of Prophet Muhammad’s trips to Syria.

The story goes that the monk Bahira foretold the coming Prophethood and counseled Abu Talib to “guard his nephew carefully.”...

Story of Prophet Muhammad’s Wife Lady Maymuna

Towards the later part of her life, Maymuna had been yearning to marry the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) for quite a while. Hence, she decided to speak to her sister, Umm al-Fadl, about the matter, who in turn, talked to her husband, Al-Abbas.

Al-Abbas presented the marriage proposal to the Prophet himself, who accepted the offer.

Thereafter, their wedding ceremony took place in the blessed month of Shawwal, in the year 7 AH...

4 Lessons From Prophet Muhammad’s Perfect Character

The Prophet’s statement implies there are two types of good moral conduct.  The first is common knowledge.  People know it instinctively.

The other type is that which completes and perfects it.  This cannot be known without God’s guidance through revelation.  The Prophet Muhammad was sent to teach it to the people as part of the message he brought...
