5 Best Qualities Of ‘Prophet Muhammad’

1. All For The Sake Of Allah:

Prophet muhammad (PBUH) is as selfless as a person could be in life. All his undertakings and motives were just to fulfill the order of Allah and He did not undertake any action out of His personal desire and will. He lived every day of His life for the sake of Allah and everything which He did was for the Almighty. The extent of His selflessness can be seen from the example of His preaching in the valley of Taif, where people lead naughty children to throw stones at Him while He was preaching. He had to run for His life and He was all covered in blood. But still, He did not complain to Allah about Him, rather one of His companions narrates:

“The Prophet muhammad (PBUH) resembled a Prophet who was harmed by His people. He wiped the blood from His face and said: ‘O God! Forgive my people, for they know not!” (Bukhari)

Such is the selflessness in His character and every moment of His life was for the sake of Allah and for spreading His message.

2. Mannerism:

Prophet muhammad (PBUH) was the epitome of good manners. Every action that He undertook in life represented the highest morals and manners that a person could exhibit. He was an Ideal being in terms of manners and ethics, the likes of which the world has not seen. As one of His companions notes about His manners:

“The Prophet muhammad (PBUH) did not swear at anyone, nor was He rude, nor did He curse anyone. If He desired to reprimand someone, He would say: ‘What is wrong with him, may dust be cast in his face!” (Bukhari)

Thus if a Muslim is to give an example of the manners of someone, there would be none more suitable than Muhammad (PBUH).

3. Humor:

People think that being a religious leader of Islam, Prophet (PBUH) had nothing to do with humor, rather He was all strictness and stringency. This perception is wrong, as Prophet muhammad (PBUH) was the one with the finest sense of humor, the likes of which again cannot be seen in anyone. His sense of humor was not vulgar in any sense or anything that would debase or make fun of someone, rather it was fine. Anas (RA) reports such an example by saying:

Once a man asked prophet Muhammad (PBUH) for an animal to ride. He replied that “He would give him the baby of a she-camel to ride on”. The man asked ‘What would he do with a she-camel baby?’ prophet Muhammad (PBUH) replied, “Is there any camel which is not born of a she-camel?”

4. Peace Lover:

The general notion regarding Islam and Prophet muhammad (PBUH) is that they both encouraged violence in people and were and are not in favor of peace. It is totally baseless, because the religion Islam itself is peace, and Prophet (PBUH) was a lover of peace. He wanted people to live in harmony and always encouraged people to resolve their differences by opting for peace, instead of going for violence. In one of His hadith Prophet (PBUH) said:

“Let us go to resolve the situation and make peace between them.” (Bukhari)

Thus, Muslims should spread His message of peace by giving examples of the actions He undertook to ensure peace.

5. Generosity:

Generosity is another hallmark of the personality of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He was the most generous person there could ever be. He preferred others over Himself and always fulfilled the needs of anyone who came to Him to ask for something. One of His companion’s notes:

“The Prophet muhammad (PBUH) did not refuse to give anything which He had to someone if he asked for it.” (Bukhari)
