i saw this somewhere and i thought it was cool

If you are a father, you have an example in him.
If you are a business man, you have an example in him.
If you are a teacher, you have an example in him.

in this topic quote the role, then explain how the prophet(saw) played that part.

ill start it off (use this format):

Role: Orphan

how so???
: the prophet(saw) lost his father before he was born and he lost his mother when he was very young

: the prophet said the best house is the one where orphans are cared for and treated most honorably and kindly

the prophet(saw) was great patron for the orphans

I just wanted to comment subhanallah on how good of an idea this is because by doing it this way everyone will have the chance to learn about the Prophet with vast knowledge (insha'Allah) so I may continue....

Role: Husband

How so? Marriage to Aishah

example: In another report related on her authority, she is reported to have said, "The Prophet of God (peace be upon him) used to repair his shoes, mend his clothes and occupied himself at home even as any of you occupy yourself." 'Aisha relates, "God's Messenger (peace be upon him) was very softhearted, the kindliest of all. He laughed often and smiled much." Anas says that he had not seen a man who was more clement and nice to his household members than the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him)." It is related on the authority of 'Aisha that the Prophetsaid, "The best of you is one who is most nice to his wife and children and I am the nicest among you." Abu Huraira said that the Prophet (peace be upon him) never expressed disapproval of any food, if he desired he ate it, and if he disliked he left it alone."

Role: best example to all mankind

How so: every muslim wants to be like him

Indeed in the Messenger of Allah you have an excellent example to follow for him who hopes in (the meeting with) Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah much" (al-Ahzab, 21)

Ayesha (ra) had described the Prophet (saw) as the "walking Qur'an": he wuz the living example of all the practises and good deeds commanded in quran Prophet (saw) said

Whoever obeys me will enter Paradise; and whoever disobeys me surely has rebelled. (Bukhari.)

Role: Trader/Businessmen

How so: Worked with Khadija (ra)

Example: He was renowned as an honest person and even called 'Al-Amin', the trustworthy because of it. This impressed Khadija (ra) so much that she asked to marry him (pbuh).

Role: " The seal of all prophets"

How so: The last of all Prophets.

Whatever he said, it was always explicit and in plain terms. His speech was never long-winded nor unnecessarily concise. He was kindhearted and soft-spoken, never harsh or cold in his behaviour. He neither humiliated anyone nor himself liked to be treated with disrespect. The Prophet esteemed by every provision; even if it was small in quantity he never deprecated it. As for food, he never disapproved nor praised, nor did he show anger about anything of the world or what it stands for. However, whenever one failed to meet one's obligation to God, nothing could cool down his indignation until he had paid back in full measure. But, for the wrongs done to his own person, he would never become angry.

:sl: more...........

Role: Eternal Model of all time

How so: An example given by Allah(swt)

Example: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) was the last and the greatest of all the Prophets sent to provide guidance to all people in every age, time and clime. The comprehensiveness of the Prophet's character summed up graphically by Syed Sulaiman Nadwi in "Muhammed, The Ideal Prophet (peace be upon him)", is a fitting epilogue to this section dealing with the character of the Prophet (peace be upon him). He writes:

"A model which can serve for every class of the people acting under different circumstances and states of human emotions will be found in the life of Muhammed (peace be upon him). If you are rich, there is the example of the tradesman of Makkah and the master of Bahrain's treasure; if you are poor, you can follow the internees of Sh`eh Abi Talib and the emigree of Medinah; if you are a king, watch the actions of the Ruler of Arabia; if you are a vassal, take a look at the man enduring hardships imposed by the Quraysh of Makkah; if you are a victor, lay your eyes on the victor of Badr and Hunayn; if you have suffered a defeat, take a lesson from the one discomfited at Uhud; if you are a teacher, learn from the mentor of the school of Suffah, if you are a student, look at the learner who sat before Gabriel; if you are a sermoner, direct your eyes to the discourser delivering lectures in the mosque of Medinah; if you are charged to preach the gospel of truth and mercy to your persecutors, observe the helpless preacher explaining the message of Allah to the pagans of Makkah; if you have brought your enemy to his knees, look at the conqueror of Makkah; if you want to administer your lands and properties, discover how the lands and groves of Bani an-Nadir, Khaybar and Fadak were managed; if you are an orphan, do not forget the child of Amina and 'Abdullah left to the tender mercy of Halima; if you are young, see the character of Makkah's shepherd; if you have a travelling business, cast a glance at the leader of the caravan under way to Busra ; if you are a judge or arbiter, look at the arbiter entering the holy sanctuary before dawn and installing Hajr Aswad in the K'aba, or the justice of peace in whose eyes the poor and the rich were alike; if you are a husband, study the behaviour of the husband of Khadija and 'Aisha; if you are a father, go through the biography of Fatima's father and the grandfather of Hasan and Husain; in short, whoever and whatever you may be, you would find a shining example in the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) to illuminate your behaviour.

If you have the life of the Prophet (peace be upon him) before you, you can find the examples of all the Prophets, Noah and Abraham, John and Jonah and Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them all). If we were to liken the life and character of each ofthe previous Prophets to a shop selling the wares of one commodity, that of Muhammed (peace be upon him) would by the same analogy be a great emporium where goods of every description can be had to suit the needs of all."
