[The Prophet has closer ties to the believers than their own selves, and his wives are their mothers … ] (Al-Ahzab 33:6)

Imam Al-Ghazali summed up the Prophet’s treatment of those around him:

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

He used to call his companions by their surnames with honor and he used to give one surname who had no surname.

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, is that superior morality which all Muslims should seek to reproduce.

no dont worry sis.. masha Allaah good posts!


Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation. (33:56)

“For one who sends blessings upon me once, Allah will send tenfold blessings in return” (Muslim and others).

At-Tabarani reported that the Prophet sal Allaahu alayhi wasalam said, “Whoever says, ‘O Allah! Bless Muhammad and grant him the place closest to You on the Day of Resurrection,’ I will intercede for him.”

Life of the Prophet Muhammad

Some Important Dates in the Life of the Prophet of Islam.


571 A.D.
Birth of Prophet Muhammad at Makkah in Arabia;
his father , Abdullah bin Abdul Muttalib, belonging to the highly-respected clan of Hashim, died a few months before his son's birth. His loving mother, Amina took care of her son.

575 A.D.
Prophet Muhammad's mother died in Madina. His caring paternal grandfather, Abdul Muttalib, brought him up in Makkah.

578 A.D.
Prophet Muhammad's grandfather, Abdul Muttalib, died. He came under the care of his kind-hearted Uncle, Abu Talib.

582 A.D.
Uncle Abu Talib took his young and dutiful nephew on a trading mission to Syria where, at Bostra, a wellknown Christian Monk, Bahira, discerned in the young Muhammad the signs of God's prophethood.

595 A.D.
Well-versed in commerce, Muhammad led a trading mission to Syria on behalf of a noble widow of Makkah, Khadijah. It was very profitable and Khadijah was highly impressed by his honesty, integrity of character and his good manners. They were married; He was 25.

605 A.D.
Muhammad's honesty became a byword in Makkah and the Makkans honoured him with the title of "Amin" (Trustee or the Trusted One). He showed remarkable tact in amicably settling a tribal row over the installation of the celestial Black Stone in the renovated holy Kaaba in Makkah.

610 A.D.
In the Cave of Hira near Makkah, where Prophet Muhammad often went for meditation, the Angel Gabriel visited him and told him that he was chosen to be God's Prophet and he conveyed to him the word of God. Thus began his Prophetic Mission and the revelation of the Holy Quran unto him.

613 A.D.
In a sermon at Mount Safa, Prophet Muhammad publicly preached the Word of God, urged the Makkans to give up the worship of idols, to join the fold of Islam and to worship the one and only God. This alarmed Makkah's pagan rulers and they started persecuting Prophet Muhammad and his Muslim followers.

615 A.D.
Due to persecution, Prophet Muhammad gave permission to a group of muslims in Makkah to emigrate to Christian-ruled Abyssinia where the noble Negus gave them asylum. In desperation, Makkah's pagan rulers issued an edict inposing social and economic boycott of the Prophet.

620 A.D.
The death of his dear Uncle Abu Talib and of his beloved wife, khadijah, in the same year was a double tragedy for the Prophet.
621 A.D. The Prophet's journey to the Heavens (Mairaj or Ancension) gave him fresh inspiration and the courage of heart to continue the Prophetic Mission in the service of God and Islam.

622 A.D.
With divine consent, Prophet Muhammad, along with a band of his Muslim followers, emigrated to Madina on the invitation of its wise elders who acknowledged him as the Prophet of God. He built a Mosque in Madina. This was also the beginning of the Islamic Hijra Calender. The first Islamic State was established by him in Madina.

623 A.D.
Muslims were instructed by the Prophet to turn towards the Kaaba in Makkah during their Prayer instead of Jerusalem (Baitul Moqadas) as was the practice heretofore. The Prophet gave the Covenant of Madina to govern the relations between the Islamic State and its inhabitants, between the State and its non-Muslim citizens and the rights and duties of the citizens and the State.

624 A.D.
The Battle of Badr in which the Prophet of Islam and his Muslim followers defeated the enemy forces from pagan Makkah.
625 A.D. The Battle of Uhud in which the Makkan troops inflicted some losses on Madina's Muslim defenders who fought back bravely and forced the enemy to retreat to Makkah.

627 A.D.
The Battle of the Trenches, in which a line of trenches, dug by Madina's Muslim defenders under the Prophet's leadership, forced a large enemy force from Makkah to retreat.

628 A.D.
Prophet Muhammad signed the Peace Treaty of Hudaibya with Makkah's emissaries under which Muslims were, inter alia, alowed to go to the Kaaba for the annual pilgrimage in restricted numbers. Muslims won the battle of Khaybar in the same year. Prophet Muhammad wrote to the heads of many States to enter the fold of Islam.

630 A.D.
Conquest of pagan-ruled Makkah by the Army of Islam uner Prophet Muhammad's command; amnesty and magnanimity to the defeated Makkans; smashing of the 360 idols in the Kaaba by the Prophet and his companions. Triumph of Islam: Military encounters at Mutah, Hunain, Taif and Tabuk in defence of Islam and the Islamic State of Madina.

631 A.D.
First large Muslim group from Madina went to Makkah for Haj pilgrimage at the Kaaba.
632 A.D. Prophet Muhammad's last Haj pilgrimage at the Kaaba and his historic sermon on Mount Arafat on the outskirts of Makkah.
June,

632 A.D.
The passing of Prophet Muhammad at the age of 63; burial in Madina; the commencement of the Caliphate of his close companion, Abu Bakr as the spiritual and temporal head of the Islamic State.

Description of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (sal Allaahu alayhi wasalam)


by Imâm Abû ‘Isâ at-Tirmidhî
(d. 279 AH / n/a CE)

Translated by Abu Rumaysah



--------------------------------------------------------------------------

With the Name of Allâh, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful


al-Hâfidh Abû ‘Isâ Muhammad bin ‘Isâ bin Sawrah at-Tirmidhî said:

Chapter One


The Stature and Physical Characteristics of the Messenger of Allâh (SAW)

1. Abû Rajâ’, Qutaybah bin Sa’îd informed us; from Mâlik bin Anas; from Rabî’ah bin Abû ‘Abdur-Rahmân; that he heard Anas bin Mâlik (RA) saying,

The Messenger of Allâh (SAW) was neither very tall, such that he would be clearly noticed, nor was he short. He was not extremely white and neither was he very brown. His hair was neither very curly nor completely straight.
Allâh commissioned him towards the end (ra’s) of his fortieth year. He remained in Mecca for ten yearsand in Madînah for ten years. Allâh caused him to pass away at the turn of his sixtieth yearand there were not to be found [as much as] twenty white hairs on his head and beard.



The Messenger of Allâh (SAW) was neither very tall, such that he would be clearly noticed, nor was he short


Meaning that he was of medium height. His being short has been categorically negated but only his being so tall as to be clearly noticed has been negated, in this lies an indication that he (SAW) was indeed of medium height but leaning towards being described as tall and this is what has been reported about him (SAW) by al-Bayhaqî. There is no contradiction between this and the forthcoming description that he (SAW) was of medium stature because such a statement is relative. This understanding is strengthened by the report of al-Barâ’a, ‘he (SAW) was of medium stature but closer to being described as tall.’ al-Bayhaqî and ibn ‘Asâkir mention that, ‘none would be perceived to be taller than he (SAW), sometimes two tall men would stand on either side of him and he would seem taller than them, yet when they parted he would seem to be of medium height.’ Ibn Saba’, al-Khasâ’is, mentions that when he (SAW) sat, his shoulder was higher than all those sitting around him. It is said in explanation to this, ‘perhaps it was that none could be perceived to be physically above him just as none was spiritually and morally above him.’

He was not extremely white and neither was he very brown

This description does not contradict the affirmation of his having a brownish complexion mentioned in the next hadîth. [Ibn Hajr] al-’Asqalânî said, ‘from all the various reports on this it becomes clear that the whiteness that has been negated from him (SAW) is that whiteness that has no tinge of red and the brownness [affirmed for him] is redness that is mixed with white.«M» This is proven by the narration of Anas in ad-Dalâ’il, ‘he was white, a whiteness going towards brown.’ As for his being described in some narrations to be extremely white, such as in the report of Bazzâr from Abû Hurayrah, ‘he was extremely white’ and the report of at-Tabarânî from Abû at-Tufayl, ‘I have not forgotten the extreme whiteness of his face,’ these are understood to refer to the luster, sheen and glitter of his skin under the light of the sun as shown by the hadîth, ‘it was as if the sun were following its course across, and shining from, his face.’

His hair was neither very curly nor completely straight

Meaning that his (SAW) hair was in a state in between being very curly and completely straight and the best of affairs are those that are in between the two extremes. az-Zamakhsharî said, ‘the predominate course amongst the Arabs is to have curly hair and among the non-Arabs, straight hair.’ Allâh has blessed His Messenger (SAW) with the best of virtues and qualities and has combined in him all that He has scattered amongst the different races.

Allâh commissioned him towards the end (ra’s) of his fortieth year

Allâh commissioned him as a Prophet and Messenger, sent to the entirety of the worlds of Jinn and Man, this by agreement of the Muslim nation and is known in the religion by necessity, whoever rejects this becomes a disbeliever. He was also sent to the Angels in the view of the researching scholars ( muhaqqiqûn), however some have objected to this. «Q» It is said that he was born on Monday, revelation came to him on Monday, he migrated to Madînah on Monday, he arrived at Madînah on Monday and passed away on Monday. The commentators have stated that the meaning of the ra’s of his fortieth year is its last part [and not the turn] due to the opinion of the majority of the historians and biographers that he was commissioned after having entered his fortieth year. at-Tîbî said, ‘ ra ‘s here is metaphorically used to refer to the end of the year [and not its beginning] in the same way as one says, “ ra’s of the verse” i.e. its last part.’ As for the usage of the word forty then it could either refer to the entry into the fortieth year or the year which is added to the thirty-ninth, both usages are common. However the specification that occurs through mention of the word ‘year’ in this hadîth lends weight to the first possibility. al-Hâfidh al-’Asqalânî said, ‘[understanding it to mean the turn of the fortieth year] would mean that he was commissioned in the month of his birth which is Rabî’ al-Awwal, however he was commissioned in the month of Ramadân and therefore his age would be forty and a half or thirty nine and a half. Those who mentioned forty as his age did so by ignoring the addition or subtraction. However both al-Mas’ûdî and ibn ‘Abdu-l-Barr mention that the correct opinion was that he was commissioned in Rabî’ al-Awwal, so according to this view he (SAW) would have just turned forty. It is also postulated that he was commissioned when he was forty years and ten days or forty years and twenty days old. Qâdî ‘Ayâd relates an irregular [and hence weak] report from ibn ‘Abbâs and Sa’îd bin al-Musayyab that he (SAW) was commissioned at the turn of his forty-third year.’

He remained in Mecca for ten years

The nation is agreed that he (SAW) stayed in Mecca for thirteen years, therefore one could say that those who narrated ten years, rounded down and left off mention of the additional three, or one could say that the narration of those who mention thirteen years is stronger.

and in Madînah for ten years

meaning after the Hijrah. He (SAW) remained there for ten years, there is no difference concerning this, until the people entered into the religion in droves, until Allâh perfected the religion for him and his nation and completed his favour upon them.

Allâh caused him to pass away at the turn of his sixtieth year

This implies that he passed away at the age of sixty, however the strongest opinion is that he was sixty-three and it is said sixty-five. These ages are reconciled by stating that those who stated sixty-five included the year of his birth and death. Those who mentioned sixty-three did not and those who mentioned sixty rounded down. «M»This point is not contradicted by the statement ‘turn of his sixtieth year’ because what is meant here is the beginning of his sixties.

and there were not to be found [as much as] twenty white hairs on his head and beard Rather there were less as proven by the narration of ibn Sa’d [from Anas (RA)], ‘there were only seventeen white hairs on his head and beard.’ There is no contradiction between this and the report of ibn ‘Umar (RAA), ‘he had approximately twenty white hairs’ because this just talks about an approximation. In the report of ibn Hibbân and al-Bayhaqî from ibn ‘Umar (RAA) there occurs, ‘his white hairs were approximately twenty all towards the front.’ As for the hadîth of ‘Abdullâh bin Busr, ‘his white hairs did not exceed ten’, he was talking about the hairs on the front of his beard, and hence the remainder is understood to be on his temples. «Q»As for what is mentioned in one narration by way of negating white hairs for him (SAW), what is meant is a negation of plentitude not a negation in totality. A more detailed discussion concerning his (SAW) age and white hairs follows in the relevant chapters if Allâh wills.

2. Humayd bin Mas’adah al-Basrî nararted to us; ‘Abdu-l-Wahhâb ath-Thaqafî narrated to us; from Humayd; from Anas bin Mâlik (RA) that he said,

The Messenger of Allâh (SAW) was of medium stature, neither tall nor short, of a goodly build. His hair was neither curly nor completely straight. He had a brownish complexion and when he walked he leant forward [walking briskly].


He had a brownish complexion

This does not contradict the previous description of his skin as has already been explained. However it is said that this contradicts the ensuing description that he ‘was white skinned as if moulded of silver.’ Some have reconciled this by saying that the brownish complexion applied to that part of the skin that was exposed to the sun and that that part of his skin which was concealed by his garments was white. However this reconciliation has been refuted because of the narration that mentions his neck being white as if it was made of silver, the neck is normally exposed to the sun. It is possible that this comparison hold true when considering the luster and sheen of his skin under the light of the sun and the smoothness of his skin.

3. Muhammad bin Bashshâr – al-’Abdî - narrated to us; Muhammad bin Ja’far narrated to us; Shu’bah narrated to us; from Abû Is`hâq; that he heard al-Barâ’a bin ‘Azib (RA) saying,

The Messenger of Allâh (SAW) had slightly curly hair and was of medium stature (rajil marbû’) with broad shoulders. His hair was thick, reaching his earlobes and he wore a red hulla. I have never seen anything more beautiful than he.


Some reports mention that his hair reached below his ears and above his shoulders, others mention half way down his ears, others mention to his ears, others mention to his shoulders and others mention to his shoulder blades. Qâdî ‘Ayâd reconciled these by saying that these descriptions all related to different times. Therefore when he (SAW) delayed cutting his hair, it would grow to his shoulders, when he cut his hair, it would reach his ears, or half way down his ears or to his earlobes.


A detailed discussion follows in the chapter dealing with his (SAW) clothes.

I have never seen anything more beautiful than he.

This statement, along with proving the great beauty of the Messenger of Allâh (SAW), also goes to show al-Barâ’a’s complete faith because believing him (SAW) to be so is one of the branches of having complete love for him.

4. Mahmûd bin Ghaylân narrated to us; Wakî’ narrated to us; Sufyân ath-Thawrî narrated to us; from Abû Is`hâq; from al-Barâ’a bin ‘Azib (RA) that he said,

I have never seen a person having a full head of hair, wearing a red hulla, who looked better than the Messenger of Allâh (SAW). He had hair that reached his shoulders and his shoulders were broad. He was neither short nor tall.

5. Muhammad bin Ismâ’îl narrated to us; Abû Nu’aym narrated to us; al-Mas’ûdî narrated to us; from ‘Uthmân bin Muslim bin Hurmuz; from Nâfi’ bin Jubair bin Mut’im; from ‘Alî bin Abû Tâlib (RA) that he said,

The Prophet (SAW) was neither tall nor short. His hands and feet were heavy and thick [but not calloused]. He had a large head, large bones and a long line of fine hair extending from his chest to navel. When he walked, he leant forward as if descending a slope. I have not seen anyone, before him or after him, who was comparable to him.

6. Sufyân bin Wakî’ narrated to us; my father narrated to us; from al-Mas’ûdî the likes of this with this isnâd.

7. Ahmad bin ‘Abdah ad-Dabbî al-Basrî narrated to us, as did ‘Alî bin Hujr and Abû Ja’far Muhammad bin al-Husayn – i.e. ibn Abî Halîmah; ‘Isâ bin Yûnus narrated to us; from ‘Umar bin ‘Abdullâh the servant of Ghufrah; Ibrâhîm bin Muhammad – one of the sons of ‘Alî bin Abû Tâlib (RA) – narrated to me that when ‘Alî (RA) described the Messenger of Allâh (SAW) he would say,

The Messenger of Allâh (SAW) was neither extremely tall nor extremely short, rather he was of a medium stature amongst the people. His hair was neither curly nor completely straight, rather inbetween. He did not have a very fleshy face, neither was it completely round, rather it was only slightly so. He was white skinned, having a reddish tinge. His eyes were large with jet black pupils and his lashes, long. His joints were large as was his upper back. He did not have hair all over his body but had a line of fine hair extending from his chest to his navel. When he walked, he would walk briskly as if descending a slope. When he turned, he would turn his whole body and between his two shoulders was the Seal of Prophethood.
He was the Seal of the Prophets, the most giving of hearts, the most truthful of them, the best of them in temperament and the most sociable of them. Whoever unexpectedly saw him would stand in awe of him and whoever accompanied him and got to know him would love him. Those who described him would say, ‘I have never seen anyone, before him or after him, who was comparable to him.’

He did not have hair all over his body

This description also holds true for someone who has hair on parts of his body and hence does not contradict the description that he (SAW) had hair on his shins, forearms and a line of hair from chest to navel.

When he walked, he would walk briskly as if descending a slope.


Meaning that he walked with strength of purpose, lifting each foot clearly off the ground, not like those who walk with an air of ostentation – walking in small steps like women.

When he turned, he would turn his whole body

Meaning that he did not steal any glances. It is said that it means that he did not turn his head left or right when looking at something because this is the mannerism of those frivolous and thoughtless, having no sense of purpose; instead he would turn his whole body to one who addressed him, showing his complete concern to what he was saying and would turn his whole body away upon finishing. Therefore when he was talking to someone or other such things, he would turn his entire body to him and not just turn his head as this is the manner of the arrogant. This last meaning is the clearest due to the ensuing description that most of the time he would merely glance at things [i.e. when not addressing them].

the most giving of hearts

Meaning he would never miserly withhold any of the effects of this world or any knowledge concerning his Lord. His generosity did not come about through effort, neither was it hard upon him, rather it naturally arose due to the purity of his soul and gentleness of spirit. It is also said that it means that he had the largest heart, i.e. his heart never held back or grieved him. This is supported by the report of ibn Sa’d with this isnâd with the words, ‘the most giving of people and the largest of heart.’ It is also said that it means that he had the best of hearts, i.e. he was free of all lowly traits and how could this be otherwise when Jibrîl cut open his heart, took out of a morsel of flesh, placed it in a golden tray and washed it with Zamzam water.

the most sociable of them

In some texts the wording is ‘the best of them in lineage’ and both descriptions hold true of him (SAW).

Whoever unexpectedly saw him would stand in awe of him

due to his exceptional descriptions, his heavenly sense of gravity, dignity, and appearance and deluge of spirituality.

whoever accompanied him and got to know him would love him

to the point that that he became more beloved to him than his father, his child and indeed the whole of mankind. This was due to the clear manifestation and existence of all that would necessitate love such as perfect morals and manners, sweeping compassion and kindness, innate humility and his captivating hearts and uniting them. Ibn al-Qayyim said while explaining the difference between arrogance ( kibr) and carrying oneself with an air of dignity and self-respect ( mahâbah), ‘dignity and self-respect arise from a heart that is filled with the glorification of Allâh, with love of Him and magnification of Him. When the heart is filled with this it becomes inundated with light, tranquility descends upon it, one is clothed with the garments of gravity, dignity and inspiring awe, and his face displays a sense of sweetness and pureness. Hearts love him and stand in awe of him, they are drawn to him and are comforted by his presence. His speech is light, his entrance is light, his leaving is light and his actions are light. When he is quiet, a sense of dignity and gravity overcomes him, and when he speaks, he captures heart, ear and sight. As for arrogance then it arises from self-conceit and transgression from a heart that is filled with ignorance and oppression. Servitude leaves such a person and displeasure descends upon him. When he looks at people, he looks askance, when he walks amongst them, he struts. He deals with them as one who gives himself preference in all things rather than giving them preference. He does not commence by giving people the salâm, and if he replies to a salâm, he acts as if he has granted them a great favour. He does not display a cheerful face to them and his manners do not accommodate them. Allâh has protected His beloved from all of these vile mannerisms.’
Those who described him would say

i.e. by way of generalisation because of the inability to truly describe his beauty and perfection in detail.

‘I have never seen anyone, before him or after him, who was comparable to him.’

Prophet Muhammad never held back his love for the children and always expressed his fondness to them.

Anas ibn Malik(ra) the servant of the Prophet, had another recollection:

I never saw anyone who was more compassionate towards children than Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him). His son Ibrahim was in the care of a wet nurse in the hills around Madinah. He would go there, and we would go with him, and he would enter the house, pick up his son and kiss him, then come back. (Muslim)

The Prophet was always concerned about everyone’s thought and feeling. The following hadith narrated by Anas ibn Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) proves his thoughtful character:

The Prophet said, “(It happens that) I start the prayer intending to prolong it, but on hearing the cries of a child, I shorten the prayer because I know that the cries of the child will incite its mother’s passions.” (Al-Bukhari)

Heres a saying of the Prophet that proves that Muslims should be conscious to treat their sons and daughters justly:

“Fear Allah and treat your children [small or grown] fairly (with equal justice).” (Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

Narrated Sharik bin 'Abdullah bin Abi Namir: I heard Anas bin Malik saying, "On a Friday a person entered the main Mosque through the gate facing the pulpit while Allah's Apostle was delivering the Khutba. The man stood in front of Allah's Apostle and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! The livestock are dying and the roads are cut off; so please pray to Allah for rain.' " Anas added, "Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) raised both his hands and said, 'O Allah! Bless us with rain! O Allah! Bless us with rain! O Allah! Bless us with rain!' " ..

Anas added, "By Allah, we could not see any trace of cloud in the sky and there was no building or a house between us and (the mountains of) Sila."

Anas added, "A heavy cloud like a shield appeared from behind it (i.e. Sila' Mountain). When it came in the middle of the sky, it spread and then rained."

Anas further said, "By Allah! We could not see the sun for a week. Next Friday a person entered through the same gate and at that time Allah's Apostle was delivering the Friday's Khutba. The man stood in front of him and said, 'O Allah's Apostle! The livestock are dying and the roads are cut off, please pray to Allah to with-hold rain.' "

Anas added, "Allah's Apostle (p.b.u.h) raised both his hands and said, 'O Allah! Round about us and not on us. O Allah! On the plateaus, on the mountains, on the hills, in the valleys and on the places where trees grow.' So the rain stopped and we came out walking in the sun."

Sharik asked Anas whether it was the same person who had asked for the rain (the last Friday). Anas replied that he did not know.

When he turned, he would turn his whole body

Meaning that he did not steal any glances. It is said that it means that he did not turn his head left or right when looking at something because this is the mannerism of those frivolous and thoughtless, having no sense of purpose; instead he would turn his whole body to one who addressed him, showing his complete concern to what he was saying and would turn his whole body away upon finishing. Therefore when he was talking to someone or other such things, he would turn his entire body to him and not just turn his head as this is the manner of the arrogant. This last meaning is the clearest due to the ensuing description that most of the time he would merely glance at things [i.e. when not addressing them].
subhanallah...

I once read in a book that when are prophet pbuh was named mohammed, the quraishi leaders that came for a feast in abdul mutthalib's house, exclaimed that no one usually names their children mohammed, n that it is a very rare name.
N to that Abdul mutthalib replied " I wish my grandson to attain sucess and fame, n that is why i named him mohammed"

The name mohammed means "the most respected and most sucessful" according to this book.

N guess which name is most common in the world now??
Its the name mohammed

Ibn 'Abbaas Radiyallahu 'Anhu says: "Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam was the most generous among people in performing good deeds (No one could compare with him in generosity. He himself led a simple life, but in giving he would put a king to shame.At a time of great need a woman presented him a sheet, and he wore it as he was in need of it.A person came to him, and asked him for it, he presented the sheet to that person. Taking of loans and fulfilling the needs of.others, when the creditors came, and if something had come from somewhere, he would pay the debts, and did not go home till everything was given to the needy. There exists many incidents of this nature, so much so that it is not possible to enumerate them). Particularly in the month of Ramadaan, he would be more generous till the month ended. (His generosity in this month exceeded all the other months). In this month when Jibra-eel 'Alayhis Salaam came and recited the Qur-aan to Rasulullah Sallallahu 'Alayhi Wasallam, at that time his generosity exceeded the wind that brings forth heavy rains". :loving:

The life of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) has been said by his wife, Aisha (May Allah (S) be pleased with her) to be like "a walking Qur`an", embodying the Laws of Almighty Allah (subhaana wa taalah).
This characterization and behaviour of the Prophet (S) embodies the practical message of Islam. The Nobel Qur`an is a guide, covenant, criterion, a balance and a healing (shifa) for humanity and the “Walking Qur`an” represents a noble character, which is a symbol of the Book of Allah. The Prophet (S) represents Islam and is the essence of this message and the value, wisdom, practice and object of the Rasul (S) was totally for the pleasure of Allah (S).

RASULULLAH’S (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) COMPASSION FOR HIS UMMAH
Allah Taãla declares the profound love that Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) had for his Ummah. He states, ‘Certainly there has come to you from amongst yourselves a Rasul, grievous to him is your suffering, ardently anxious is he over your good, he is to the believers gentle and kind.’ (9:128)
The intensity of Rasulullah’s (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) love for his Ummah can be further concluded by the fact that he would sometimes spend the entire night weeping for the forgiveness of the Ummah. Nabi (Sallallaahu Álayhi Wasallam) said, ‘Every Nabi was given the privilege of making one Duá that was certainly accepted. All the Nabis hastened in submitting this Duá during their life. I have reserved my Duá for the intercession of my Ummah on the Day of Judgement. All those who die from my Ummah without ascribing partners to Allah will benefit from this Duá. (Muslim)

His Beautiful Appearance
Hadhrat Ayesha Radhi-Allâhu 'anha aptly summarised his resplendent beauty in the following words (referring to the incident mentioned in the Qur'ân concerning Yusuf Alayhis-Salâm, when the women cut their hands instead of the fruit upon beholding the beauty of Yusuf Alayhis-Salâm): “If the friends of Zuleikha had seen the blessed face of Rasulullâh Sallallâhu 'alayhi wasallam, they would have cut their hearts open instead of their hands...” How heart-rending the words of Hassan bin Thabit are in describing Nabî Sallallâhu 'alayhi wasallam: “More beautiful than you has my eyes never observed. More handsome than you no mother has ever conceived. You have been created free of all blemishes, created as though you have been created as you intended.”
The final word on this matter is concisely put forward by Allamah Qurtubi Rahmahullâh who writes that the complete beauty of Rasulullâh Sallallâhu 'alayhi wasallam was not manifested unto mankind, because they do not possess the capability to bear this.

More than 1,400 years ago Allah and His messenger sallallahu alaiyhi wa sallam (peace be upon him), told us that honey can heal a variety of medicinal problems.


Allah says in the Qur'an, "And the lord inspired the bee, saying: Take your habitations in the mountains and in the trees and in what they erect. Then, eat of all fruits and follow the ways of your Lord made easy (for you)'. There comes forth from their bellies a drink of varying colour wherein is healing for men. Verily in this is indeed a sign for people who think." [Qur'an 16:68-69]


The Prophet, sallallahu aleyhe wa sallam (peace be upon him), has also told us of the healing found within honey for a variety of medical problems, including stomach ailments. One hadeeth, reported by Bukhari, states that a man came to the Prophet , sallallahu alaiyhi wa sallam (peace be upon him), because his brother had a stomach disorder. The Prophet sallallahu alaiyhi wa sallam said "Let him drink honey." The man returned a second time and again the Prophet , sallallahu alaiyhi wa sallam (peace be upon him), responded again, "Let him drink honey." The man returned again, and said "I have done that." The Prophet sallallahu alaiyhi wa sallam then responded, "Allah has said the truth, but your brother's stomach has told a lie. Let him drink honey." He drank it and was cured.


Tirmizi, Ibn Majah and Baihaqi also reported that the Prophet, sallallahu alaiyhi wa sallam (peace be upon him), said, "Make use of the two remedies: honey and the Qur'an."

N let us see what modern day science have to say about the same honey Prophet Mohammed Pbuh has empasized on

Amazing Facts...About Honey and Your Health
1. Honey contains vitamins and antioxidants, but is fat free, cholesterol free and sodium free!
2. One antioxidant called "pinocembrin" is only found in honey.
3. Honey is the only food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water.
4. Honey has the ability to attract and absorb moisture, which makes it remarkably soothing for minor burns and helps to prevent scarring.
5. Honey speeds the healing of open wounds and also combats infection.
6. As recently as the First World War, honey was being mixed with cod liver oil to dress wounds on the battlefield.
7. Modern science now acknowledges honey as an anti-microbial agent, which means it deters the growth of certain types of bacteria, yeast and molds.
8. Honey and beeswax form the basics of many skin creams, lip-balms, and hand lotions.
9. According to Dr. Paul Gold, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia, "people remember things much better after they've consumed glucose, a form of sugar found in honey."
10. Honey is nature's energy booster! It provides a concentrated energy source that helps prevent fatigue and can boost athletic performance.
11. Recent studies have proven that athletes who took some honey before and after competing recovered more quickly than those who did not.
12. Honey supplies 2 stages of energy. The glucose in honey is absorbed by the body quickly and gives an immediate energy boost. The fructose is absorbed more slowly providing sustained energy.

This is what we all call amazing. How great and wise he was to show us that there is medicine in honey. He truly followed the holy Quran, n he is the best guide, n if we follow his path, god will light our paths! That is how amazing our Prophet Pbuh was, is and will always be :)

The reason why Prophet Mohammed Pbuh was illiterate?
The prophet mohammed was illiterate from da day he was born till he died. And to him was the holy book "QURAN" given. This was mainly done by God to show n make people see that the book was not produced by him, and that it was given by GOD. Imagine, how beautiful the chapters are in the holy Quran!! And people were astounded and believed the Prophet when he announced the "Quran" to the people. How can someone who has no knowledge of writing come up with a beautiful book? It must certainly be from God. And this were one of the reasons why he was illiterate.

i read in this book that the Prophet mohammed Pbuh, adopted his eleqount speech from Halima, her tribe spoke arab very fluently and beautifully. The way they speak was so beautiful that it involves no hurting words, its with so much respect they spoke. For e.g in this book, they said
if the ppl of that tribe came across a theif
they would not say " THIS MAN IS THE THEIF!!"
instead they would say it in a nicer manner
"We suspect that this man may have taken the stolen object"
they tell out things in a nice manner, n this is where our Prophet Mohammed pbuh learnt a very nice way of speaking.

The Prophet Mohammed pbuh has a unique way of eating, he eats with three or 5 fingers, If he is unhappy with the taste, he would not pass bad comments. Instead he would say " ive had enough of this type of food, i would like to try the other dish". In this sentence too we can see how careful he was in speaking. He tries not to hurt anyone in his comments.
And if the food is tasty, he would praise it.
he also emphasized on eating with his right hand. He also never leans on anything while he ate. This is what we call "Table manners"
Talking abt table manners, i just remmebered, our prophet never ate on a table till he passed away! And he had a habit of licking his fingers when he had his meal

:sl: everyone...The fact about Prophet Muhammad (Peace upon be him)

Amongst this people was born Muhammad, an orphan from his birth, who lost even his mother when six years old. He came of the noblest family of the Quraish, yet, like the rest of his countrymen, he was not taught reading and writing. He tended sheep for some time, and the noblest of the Arabs had no contempt for that occupation, but in his youth he was chiefly occupied in trade. It was, however, his high morals that distinguished him from the first from all his compatriots. The Holy Quran, which contains the most trustworthy account of the Prophet's life, says that he was the "possessor of sublime morals." [68:4]

Leading generally a reserved life, he had for friends only those men whose moral greatness was admitted by all. His truthfulness is testified in the clearest words [6:33]. His bitterest opponents were challenged to point out a single black spot on his character during the forty years that he had passed among them before he received the Divine call [10:16]. It was in his youth that, on account of his pure and unsoiled character and his love for truth and honesty, he won from his compatriots the title of al-Amin, or the Faithful.

Though he lived in a city in which drinking orgies were only too common, never did a drop of wine touch his lips. Even Abu Bakr, the most intimate friend of Muhammad's youth, never tasted wine. The society at Makka found pleasure in gambling, yet never did Muhammad take part in any such pastime. He lived among a people who were addicted to war as they were addicted to wine, yet he had no liking for either.

Sorry about long length story!

A christian monk named Basharia warned the Prophet's SAW uncle Abu Talib when he saw the Prophet SAW at the age of 12. He told Abu Talib that this child is the messenger of Allah and is a mercy to mankind. When enquired why he said that he said that when the Prophet SAW was coming towards him all the trees and stones bowen in prostration and this is only done for a Prophet of Allah. Further he had the sign of the Prophethood on his shoulder.

2. The Prophet SAW said he was the descendent of the two sacrificed. These were his ancestor Ism'aeel who was to be scarificed by his father Abraham AS. And he also referred to his won father Abdullah who was to be scarificed by his father Abdul Mutalib when he discovered the Zam Zam well.

Mode of living
His house was but a hut with walls of unbaked clay and a thatched roof of palm leaves covered by camel skin. He had separate apartments for his wives, a small room for each made of similar materials. His own apartment contained a rope cot, a pillow stuffed with palm leaves , the skin of some animal spread on the floor and a water bag of leather and some weapons. These were all his earthly belongings, besides a camel, a horse, and an ass and some land which he had aquired in the later part of his life (Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawud). Once a few of his disciples, noticing the imprint of his mattress on his body, wished to give him a softer bed but he politely declined the offer saying,
"What have I to do with worldly things. My connection with the world is like that of a traveler resting for a while underneath the shade of a tree and then moving on."
Amr Ibn Al-Harith, a brother in law of the prophet (pbuh), says that when the prophet died, he did not leave a cent, a slave man or woman, or any property except his white mule, his weapons and a piece of land which he had dedicated for the good of the community (Bukhari, Sahih Bukhari).
He advised the people to live simple lives and himself practised great austerities. Even when he had become the virtual king of arabia, he lived an austere life bordering on privation. His wife Aiysha (ra) says that there was hardly a day in his life when he had two square meals (Muslim, Sahih Muslim, Vol.2, pg 198). When he died there was nothing in his house except a few seeds of barley left from a mound of the grain obtained from a Jew by pawning his armour (Bukhari, Sahih Bukhari, Chapter "Aljihad").


SUBHANALLAH


He had declared unlawful for himself and his family anything given by the people by way of zakat or sadaqa (types of charity). He was so particular about this that he would not appoint any member of his family as a zakat collector (Sahah-Kitab Sadqat).

It is listening to such articles which makes me wish i had less in the dunya so i can expect more in the akhira. I just dont think we need a stereo system or such comfy beds. lol simple... thats my dream. at most maybe read the newspaper to find out the events of the world and listen to sum nasheeds which have ABSOTOLUTELY NO MUSIC!!!! but even that on a rare occasion (such as eid's)

Daily routine
On the authority of Ali, Tirmizi has recorded that the Prophet (pbuh) had carefully apportioned his time according to the demands on him for
offering worship to Allah
public affairs, and
personal matters.
After the early morning prayers he would remain sitting in the mosque reciting praises of Allah till the sun rose and more people collected. He would then preach to them. After the sermons were over, he would talk genially with the people, enquire about their welfare and even exchange jokes with them. Taxes and revenues were also disrtibuted at this time (Muslim, Sahih Muslim Tirmizi, Sunan Tirmizi). He would then offer chaste prayers and go home and get busy with household work (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi). He would again return to the mosque for the mid-day and afternoon prayers, listen to the problems of the people and give solace and guidance to them. After the afternoon prayers, he would visit each of his wives and, after the evening prayers, his wives would collect at one place and he would have his dinner (Muslim, Sahih Muslim). After the night prayers, he would recite some suras of the Quran and before going to bed would pray:
"O Allah, I die and live with thy name on my lips."
On getting up he would say,
"All praise to Allah Who has given me life after death and towards Whom is the return."
He used to brush his teeth five times a day, before each of the daily prayers. After midnight, he used to get up for the tahajjud prayers which he never missed even once in his life (Bukhari, Sahih Bukhari). He was not fastidious about his bed: sometimes he slept on his cot, sometimes on a skin or ordinary matress, and sometimes on the ground (Zarqani).
On friday he used to give sermons after the weekly "Jumma" prayers. He was not annoyed if anyone interrupted him during the sermons for anything. It is stated that once, while he was delivering his sermon, a bedouin approached him and said, "O messenger of Allah, I am a traveler and am ignorant of my religion." The prophet (pbuh) got down from the pulpit, explained the salient features of Islam to him and then resumed the sermon (Tirmizi, Sunan Tirmizi).

On another occasion his grandson Husain, still a child, came tumbling to him while he was delivering a sermon. He descended and took him in his lap and then continued the sermon (Ibid).

PEACE BE UPON HIM!!!

Alhamdulilah we have this forum to honour our beloved prophet(salalahu alahi wa salam). Jizakalahu khairun for sharing.

It was difficult to find something wich wasn't written before, but here's one hadith:

"Whoever does not have mercy on our young ones and knows not the
right(s) of of the elder(s), is not from us"
Bukhaaree in Al-Adab Al Mufrad(353) and Al-Albanee said about it "saheeh"

it is reported that the Holy Prophet SAWS loved his daughter Hz. Fatima the most of all his relatives. wenever Fatima(rz) visited him, he used to stand up to welcome her, and in greeting, he would place his blessed lips upon her forehead; and give her his own seat...
this is something i really fell in love with about our Beloved Prophet Muhammad SAWS. how many muslim fathers of this age display affection for their daughters this way?

It was the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallallahu 'alahi wassallam) to make the following du'a in the witr salaat:
"...Bless me in what You have given me. And avert and turn away from me the evil that hads been decreed for me, for verily Yiu decre (all things) and none can decree against You..."Reported by At-Tirmidhi

Rasoolallah(SAW) had the highest level of patience and he always kept his promises.

One day, a man told the prophet (SAW) he will meet him at a certain place, Rasoolallah (SAW) stayed there for 3 days waiting for him....:'( :wub:

Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is the only Prophet in whose honour praises have been sung by most other religious leaders and some have rather recommended to their followers to follow the path of this great Prophet.

When RasoolAllah (saw) started to reveal d message given 2 him by Allah (swt) in Mecca, der was this 1 woman, who weneva RasoolAllah (saw) walked thru her street, she would throw her rubbish over him, it came so serious that she told the rubbish collector not 2 collect her rubbish, so she cud throw it on RasoolAllah (saw)... so oneday, wen RasoolAllah (saw) ealked fru her street he noticed dat 2day she didnt throw anythin on him, so he enquired dat, "wot happen 2 d woman, who used 2 throw rubbish @ me, wen i walked fru dis street", d ppl told RasoolAllah (saw) dat she is ill, dats y she hasnt even b able 2 move, imagine sum1 was chuckin rubbish on us, n we found out dey ill, we wud b bare happy lol HOWEVER, RasoolAllah (saw) bein d bestest, n sweetest person in d world, went 2 find out how d woman was, so wen he went 2 c her, he asked her "how r u", and d woman was so surprised, bcos she had been throwin rubbish @ him, n he still came 2 find out how she was, at seein the greatness of Our Prophet (saw), n d greatness of Islam, she converted Mashallah!!!!!! :)

Also, once Hadhrat Hassan (ra) wen he woz a child, he was playin in Masjid e Nabi,Hassan (ra) saw RasoolAllah (saw) prayin and go into sajda, and wen Hassan (ra) saw that his grandfather was there, he jumped on his back, so RasoolAllah (saw) stayed in sajda 4 longer, and afta he had finished his salah the sahaba said to him "RasoolAllah (saw) u sud hav cum up from sajda and Hassan (ra) wud hav also come off" 2 this RasoolAllah (saw) replied, "i didnt want to deprive the child of his happyness, he was happy that he was on the back of his grandad so i didnt want to deprive him of that" Mashallah c how sweet he was!! can u imagine nowadays, if sum kid was 2 jump on his grandad or dads bk durin salah, dey wud beat d kid up lol :giggling:

The fact that Rasulullah shalallahu alaihi wasallam that he was bleeding in war of Uhud. Amazing Masha Allah. This moment give a great lesson to us who wanna defend Islam but with somekinda sihr to make them self bulletproof or something. Its happen alot in ummah, someone who wanna join war against the kafereen but wearing a jimah, or something hanging on him to make him self strong. Its syirk, and cooperate with jins. Look at Rasulullah, He is the strongest, the most glorious, the most perfect, but he was bleeding to defend Islam.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 747

Narrated Rabia bin Abi Abdur-Rahman:

I heard Anas bin Malik describing the Prophet (sal Allaahu alayhi waSalam) saying, "He was of medium height amongst the people, neither tall nor short; he had a rosy color, neither absolutely white nor deep brown; his hair was neither completely curly nor quite lank. Divine Inspiration was revealed to him when he was forty years old. He stayed ten years in Mecca receiving the Divine Inspiration, and stayed in Medina for ten more years. When he expired, he had scarcely twenty white hairs in his head and beard." Rabi'a said, "I saw some of his hairs and it was red. When I asked about that, I was told that it turned red because of scent. "



Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 749

Narrated Al-Bara:

Allah's Apostle was the handsomest of all the people, and had the best appearance. He was neither very tall nor short.




Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 750

Narrated Qatada:

I asked Anas, "Did the Prophet use to dye (his) hair?" He said, "No, for there were only a few white hairs on his temples."



Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 751

Narrated Al-Bara:

The Prophet was of moderate height having broad shoulders (long) hair reaching his ear-lobes. Once I saw him in a red cloak and I had never seen a more handsome than him."



Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 752

Narrated Abu Ishaq:

Al-Bara' was asked, "Was the face of the Prophet (as bright) as a sword?" He said, "No, but (as bright) as a moon."



Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 756

Narrated 'Abdullah bin Ka'b:

I heard Ka'b bin Malik talking after his failure to join (the Ghazwa of) Tabuk. He said, "When I greeted Allah's Apostle whose face was glittering with happiness, for whenever Allah's Apostle was happy, his face used to glitter, as if it was a piece of the moon, and we used to recognize it (i.e. his happiness) from his face."



Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 758

Narrated Ibn 'Abbas:

Allah's Apostle used to let his hair hang down while the infidels used to part their hair. The people of the Scriptures were used to letting their hair hang down and Allah's Apostle liked to follow the people of the Scriptures in the matters about which he was not instructed otherwise. Then Allah's Apostle parted his hair.



Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 56, Number 761

Narrated Anas:

I have never touched silk or Dibaj (i.e. thick silk) softer than the palm of the Prophet nor have I smelt a perfume nicer than the sweat of the Prophet

RasoolAllah, sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam had a very energetic, active and lively personality. He was so active that he never yawned in his entire lifetime. This fact has been recorded in the Sahih books of Hadeeth. He was never lazy or tired. He had a very charming personality.
SubhanAllah its amazing.
