Muhammad (PBUH) is the human being of excellent morals and character, so if we want to lead a successful life then we should follow the path practiced by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
This blog is going to be about the moral values learnt from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Aisha (RA), the wife of Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of Allah be upon him, said..
“The trait and characteristic which the Prophet (PBUH) hated most was lying. A man would tell a lie in the presence of the Prophet(PBUH) and He would hold it against him, until He knew that he repented.” [Tirmidhi]
BRAVERY AND COURAGE
“You should have seen him on the Day of Badr! We sought refuge with the Messenger of Allah(PBUH). He was the closest among us to the enemy. On that day, the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was the strongest one among us.”[AHMED]
KINDNESS AND COMPASSION
The Prophet(PBUH) was the kindest of people and this was also apparent in his treatment of infants.
“The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) performed the salah (prayer) while he was carrying an infant girl named Umama, daughter of Abul-Aas. When he bowed, he put her on the ground, and when he stood up, he would carry her again.”[SAHEEH AL-BUKHARI]
The Prophet(PBUH) was sincere and honest in all his matters, as Allah had ordered him in the Quran:
“Say, Indeed, my prayer, my rites of sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allah, Lord of the worlds. No partner has He. And this I have been commanded and I am the first (among you) of the Muslims.” (Quran 6:162, 163)
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was the humblest person.
The Prophet (PBUH) would not hesitate to help the poor, needy and widows in their needs.
Anas (RA) said:
“A woman from the people of Madina who was partially insane said to the Prophet (PBUH): ‘I have to ask you [your help] about something.’ He helped her and took care of her needs.” [SAHEEH AL-BUKHARI]
So in order to lead a successful life we should acquire life lessons from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) .
May Allah (SWT) give us strength to learn and implement His virtues in order to succeed in this life and Hereafter! Aameen!..
