The prophet’s manners and characteristics Part 6
Friday, April 20, 2012
The messenger of God (SAW) said to Al-Abbas: ‘Doesn’t it amaze you, how much Mugheeth loves Barerah, and how much she dislikes Mugheeth!’ The prophet (SAW) said to Bareerah: ‘Why don’t you go back to him?’ she said to him: ‘Are you commanding me to do so?’ he said: ‘I have no need for him.’ (Bukhari #4875).
The messenger of God (SAW) would serve himself: A’ishah said: ‘I was asked how the messenger of God (SAW) behaved in his house!’ She said: ‘he was like any man; he washed his clothes, milked his sheep, and served himself.’ (Ahmed 24998). The prophet’s excellent manners, not only made him serve himself; rather, he would serve others as well. A’ishah said: ‘I was asked how the messenger of God (SAW) behaved in his house’ She said: ‘he would help out in the house with the daily chores, and when he heard the Adthan he would leave (everything and head) for the mosque.’ IBukhari 5048).
Statements of Justice and Equity
The German poet, Wolfgang Goethe said: “I looked into history for a human paradigm and found it to be in Muhammed (SAW).”
Professor Keith Moore said in his book: ‘The Developing Human’: “It is clear to me that these statements must have come to Muhammed from God, or Allah, because most of this knowledge was not discovered until many centuries later. This proves to me that Muhammed must have been a messenger of God, or Allah.” He further said: “I have no difficulty in my mind reconciling that this is a divine inspiration or revelation, which lead him to these statements.”
Dr. Maurice Bucaille said in his book: ‘The Qur’an, and Modern Science’: “A totally objective examination of it (the Qur’an) in the light of modern knowledge, leads us to recognize the agreement between the two, as has been already noted on repeated occasions. It makes us deem it quit unthinkable for a man of Muhammed’s time to have been the author of such statements, the author of such statements on account of the state of knowledge in his day. Such considerations are part of what gives the Qur’anic revelation its unique place and forces the impartial scientist to admit his inability to provide an explanation which calls solely upon materialistic reasoning.”
Annie Besant in the ‘Life and Teachings of Muhammed’, said: “It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great prophet of Arabia, who knew how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for the mighty prophet, one of the great messengers of the supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say anything which may be familiar to man, yet I myself feel, whenever I reread them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher.”
