Asalamalaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu,

Bismillahirrahmanirrahim

May Allah most high forgive me for my mistakes.
This topic is dedicated to our beloved prophet Muhammed peace and blessing upon him.

I am somewhat hesistant about this topic.
His (saws) example should be followed and it doesn't belong on some corner on the internet (not followed).
We are talking about the best creature ever walked this earth.

He (saws) was humble and he (saws) would hide around corners and curtains whenever he feared to much praise from people.

An excerpt from the book entitled "The Message of Mohammed," by Athar Husain

His Appearance

Muhammed (pbuh) was of a height a little above the average. He was of sturdy build with long muscular limbs and tapering fingers. The hair of his head was long and thick with some waves in them. His forehead was large and prominent, his eyelashes were long and thick, his nose was sloping, his mouth was somewhat large and his teeth were well set. His cheeks were spare and he had a pleasant smile. His eyes were large and black with a touch of brown. His beard was thick and at the time of his death, he had seventeen grey hairs in it. He had a thin line of fine hair over his neck and chest. He was fair of complexion and altogether was so handsome that Abu Bakr composed this couplet about him:
"As there is no darkness in the moonlit night so is Mustafa, the well-wisher, bright."
His gait was firm and he walked so fast that others found it difficult to keep pace with him. His face was genial but at times, when he was deep in thought, there there were long periods of silence, yet he always kept himself busy with something. He did not speak unnecessarily and what he said was always to the point and without any padding. At times he would make his meaning clear by slowly repeating what he had said. His laugh was mostly a smile. He kept his feelings under firm control - when annoyed, he would turn aside or keep silent, when pleased he would lower his eyes [Tirmidhi].

Dress

His dress generally consisted of a shirt, tamad (trousers), a sheet thrown round the shoulders and a turban. On rare occasions, he would put on costly robes presented to him by foreign emissaries in the later part of his life. [Ahmed, Musnad, Hafiz Bin Qayyim]
His blanket had several patches. [Tirmidhi] He had very few spare clothes, but he kept them spotlessly clean. [Bukhari] He wanted others also to put on simple but clean clothes. Once he saw a person putting on dirty clothes and remarked,

"Why can't this man wash them." [Abu Dawood]
On another occasion he enquired of a person in dirty clothes whether he had any income. Upon getting a reply in the affirmative, he observed,
"When Allah has blessed you with His bounty, your appearance should reflect it." [Abu Dawood]
He used to observe:
"Cleanliness is piety."

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 acquired in the later part of his life. [Bukhari, Muslim, Abu Dawood] 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 traveller resting for a while underneath the shade of a tree and then moving on."http://wup-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=11814
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. [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 A'isha (ra) says that there was hardly a day in his life when he had two square meals. [Sahih Muslim] 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. [Sahih Bukhari]

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]

His manners and disposition

"By the grace of Allah, you are gentle towards the people; if you had been stern and ill-tempered, they would have dispersed from round about you" [Qur'an 3:159]
About himself the Prophet (pbuh) said
"Allah has sent me as an apostle so that I may demonstrate perfection of character, refinement of manners and loftiness of deportment." [Muwatta; Musnad; Mishkat]
By nature he was gentle and kind-hearted, always inclined to be gracious and to overlook the faults of others. Politeness and courtesy, compassion and tenderness, simplicity and humility, sympathy and sincerity were some of the keynotes of his character. In the cause of right and justice he could be resolute and severe but more often than not, his severity was tempered with generosity. He had charming manners which won him the affection of his followers and secured their devotion. Though virtual king of Arabia and an apostle of Allah, he never assumed an air of superiority. Not that he had to conceal any such vein by practice and artifice -- with fear of Allah, sincere humility was ingrained in his heart. He used to say,
"I am a Prophet of Allah but I do not know what will be my end." [Sahih Bukhari]
In one of his sermons calculated to instil the fear of Allah and the day of reckoning in the hearts of men, he said,
"O people of Quraish be prepared for the hereafter, I cannot save you from the punishment of Allah; O Bani Abd Manaf, I cannot save you from Allah; O Abbas, son of Abdul Mutalib, I cannot protect you either; O Fatima, daughter of Muhammad, even you I cannot save." [Sahahin]
He used to pray, "O Allah! I am but a man. If I hurt any one in any manner, then forgive me and do not punish me." [Ahmed, Musnad]
He always received people with courtesy and showed respect to older people and stated: "To honour an old man is to show respect to Allah."

He would not deny courtesy even to wicked persons. It is stated that a person came to his house and asked permission for admission. The Prophet (pbuh) remarked that he was not a good person but might be admitted. When he came in and while he remained in the house, he was shown full courtesy. When he left A'isha (ra) said, "You did not think well of this man, but you treated him so well." The Prophet (pbuh) replied, "He is a bad person in the sight of Allah who does not behave courteously and people shun his company because of his bad manners." [Sahih Bukhari]

He was always the first to greet another and would not withdraw his hand from a handshake till the other man withdrew his. If one wanted to say something in his ears, he would not turn away till one had finished. [Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi] He did not like people to get up for him and used to say, "Let him who likes people to stand up in his honour, he should seek a place in hell." [Abu Dawud]

He would himself, however, stand up when any dignitary came to him. He had stood up to receive the wet nurse who had reared him in infancy and had spread his own sheet for her. His foster brother was given similar treatment. He avoided sitting at a prominent place in a gathering, so much so that people coming in had difficulty in spotting him and had to ask which was the Prophet (pbuh). Quite frequently uncouth, Bedouins accosted him in their own gruff and impolite manner but he never took offence. [Abu Dawud]

He used to visit the poorest of ailing persons and exhorted all Muslims to do likewise. [Sahih Bukhari] He would sit with the humblest of persons saying that righteousness alone was the criterion of one's superiority over another. He invariably invited people be they slaves, servants or the poorest believers, to partake with him of his scanty meals. [Tirmidhi]

Whenever he visited a person he would first greet him and then take his permission to enter the house. He advised the people to follow this etiquette and not to get annoyed if anyone declined to give permission, for it was quite likely the person concerned was busy otherwise and did not mean any disrespect. [Ibid.]

There was no type of household work too low or too undignified for him. A'isha (ra) has stated,

"He always joined in household work and would at times mend his clothes, repair his shoes and sweep the floor. He would milk, tether, and feed his animals and do the household shopping." [Qazi Iyaz: Shifa; Sahih Bukhari]
He would not hesitate to do the menial work of others, particularly of orphans and widows. [Nasi, Darmi] Once when there was no male member in the house of the companion Kabab Bin Arat who had gone to the battlefield, he used to go to his house daily and milk his cattle for the inhabitants [Ibn Saad ]


Children

He was especially fond of children and used to get into the spirit of childish games in their company. He would have fun with the children who had come back from Abyssinia and tried to speak in Abyssinian with them. It was his practice to give lifts on his camel to children when he returned from journeys. [Sahih Bukhari] He would pick up children in his arms, play with them, and kiss them. A companion, recalling his childhood, said,
"In my childhood I used to fell dates by throwing stones at palm trees. Somebody took me to the Prophet (pbuh) who advised me to pick up the dates lying on the ground but not to fell them with stones. He then patted me and blessed me." [Abu Dawud]

Daily routine

On the authority of Ali, Tirmidhi 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 distributed at this time [Sahih Muslim Tirmidh] He would then offer chaste prayers and go home and busy himself with. household work. [Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi] He would again return to the mosque for the midday 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 Qur'an 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. [Sahih Bukhari] He was not fastidious about his bed -- sometimes he slept on his cot, sometimes on a skin or ordinary mattress, and sometimes on the ground (Zarqani).
On Friday he used to give sermons after the weekly "Jummah" 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 traveller 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. [Tirmidhi]

On another occasion his grandson Hussein, 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.]

Trust in Allah (swt)

Muhammad (pbuh) preached to the people to trust in Allah (swt). His whole life was a sublime example of the precept. In the loneliness of Makkah, in the midst of persecution and danger, in adversity and tribulations, and in the thick of enemies in the battles of Uhud and Hunain, complete faith and trust in Allah (swt) appears as the dominant feature in his life. However great the danger that confronted him, he never lost hope and never allowed himself to be unduly agitated. Abu Talib knew the feelings of the Quraish when the Prophet (pbuh) started his mission. He also knew the lengths to which the Quraish could go, and requested the Prophet (pbuh) to abandon his mission, but the latter calmly replied,
"Dear uncle, do not go by my loneliness. Truth will not go unsupported for long. The whole of Arabia and beyond will one day espouse its cause." [Ibn Hisham, Sirat-ur-Rasul]
When the attitude of the Quraish became more threatening, Abu Talib again begged his nephew to renounce his mission but the Prophet's (pbuh) reply was:
"O my uncle, if they placed the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left, to force me to renounce my work, verily I would not desist therefrom until Allah made manifest His cause, or I perished in the attempt." [Ibid.]
To another well-wisher, he said,
"Allah will not leave me forlorn."
A dejected and oppressed disciple was comforted with the words:
"By Allah, the day is near when this faith will reach its pinnacle and none will have to fear anyone except Allah." [Sahih Bukhari]
It was the same trust in Allah (swt) which emboldened the Prophet (pbuh) to say his prayers openly in the haram in the teeth of opposition. The Quraish were once collected there and were conspiring to put an end to his life when he next entered the haram. His young daughter Fatima, who happened to overhear their talk rushed weeping to her father and told him of the designs of the Quraish . He consoled her, did his ablutions and went to the Ka'bah to say prayers. There was only consternation among the Quraish when they saw him. [Ahmed, Musnad]
Then leaving his house for Madinah he asked Ali (ra) to sleep on his bed and told him,

"Do not worry, no one will be able to do you any harm." (Tabari, Ibn Hisham)
Even though the enemies had surrounded the house, he left the house reciting the Quranic verse:
"We have set a barricade before them and a barricade behind them and (thus) have covered them so that they see not." [Qur'an 36:9]
Abu Bakr was frightened when pursuers came close to the cavern in which he and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were hiding during their flight, but the Prophet (pbuh) heartened him,
"Grieve not. Allah is with us."
A guard was kept at the Prophet's house in Madinah because of the danger that surrounded him but he had it withdrawn when the Quranic verse was revealed:
"Allah will protect you from the people." [Qur'an 5:67]
A man was caught waiting in ambush to assault the Prophet (pbuh) but he was directed to be released with the words,
"Even if this man wanted to kill me, he could not." [Ahmed, Musnad]
A Jewess from Khaibar had put poison in the Prophet's (pbuh) food. He spat it out after taking a morsel but a disciple who had his fill died the next day. The Jewess was brought before the prophet (pbuh) who questioned her:
"Why did you do this?" "To kill you," was her defiant reply. She was told, "Allah would not have allowed you to do it." [Sahih Muslim]
In the battle of Uhud when the rear guard action of the Makkan army had disorganized the Muslim army and had turned the tables, the Prophet (pbuh) stood as firm as a rock even though he had suffered personal injuries. When Abu Sufyan taunted the Muslims and shouted "Victory to hubal!" (hubal was one of their idols), the Prophet (pbuh) asked Umar (ra) to shout back, "Allah is our protector and friend. You have no protector and friend. Allah is Great, Magnificent." [Ibn Hisham]
Again in the battle of Hunain, when the unexpected assault of the army had swept the Muslim force off its feet and a defeat seemed imminent, the Prophet (pbuh) did not yield ground. With trust in Allah (swt) he showed such courage that the Muslim army rallied behind him to win a signal victory.

Justice

The Prophet (pbuh) asked people to be just and kind. As the supreme judge and arbiter, as the leader of men, as generalissimo [head commaner and chief] of a rising power, as a reformer and apostle, he had always to deal with men and their affairs. He had often to deal with mutually inimical and warring tribes when showing justice to one carried the danger of antagonizing the other, and yet he never deviated from the path of justice. In administering justice, he made no distinction between believers and nonbelievers, friends and foes, high and low. From numerous instances reported in the traditions, a few are given below.
Sakhar, a chief of a tribe, had helped Muhammad (pbuh) greatly in the siege of Taif, for which he was naturally obliged to him. Soon after, two charges were brought against Sakhar: one by Mughira of illegal confinement of his (Mughira's) aunt and the other by Banu Salim of forcible occupation of his spring by Sakhar. In both cases, he decided against Sakhar and made him undo the wrong. [Abu Dawud]

Abdullah Bin Sahal, a companion, was deputized to collect rent from Jews of Khaibar. His cousin Mahisa accompanied him but, on reaching Khaibar, they had separated. Abdullah was waylaid and done to death. Mahisa reported this tragedy to the Prophet (pbuh) but as there were no eye-witnesses to identify the guilty, he did not say anything to the Jews and paid the blood-money out of the state revenues. [Sahih Bukhari]

A woman of the Makhzoom family with good connections was found guilty of theft. For the prestige of the Quraish, some prominent people including Asmaa Bin Zaid interceded to save her from punishment. The Prophet (pbuh) refused to condone the crime and expressed displeasure saying,

"Many a community ruined itself in the past as they only punished the poor and ignored the offences of the exalted. By Allah, if Muhammad's (My) daughter Fatima would have committed theft, her hand would have been severed."[Sahih Bukhari]
The Jews, in spite of their hostility to the Prophet (pbuh), were so impressed by his impartiality and sense of justice that they used to bring their cases to him, and he decided them according to Jewish law. [Abu Dawud]
Once, while he was distributing the spoils of war, people flocked around him and one man almost fell upon him. He pushed the men with a stick causing a slight abrasion. He was so sorry about this that he told the man that he could have his revenge, but the man said, "O messenger of Allah, I forgive you." [Abu Dawud]

In his fatal illness, the Prophet (pbuh) proclaimed in a concourse assembled at his house that if he owed anything to anyone the person concerned could claim it; if he had ever hurt anyone's person, honour or property, he could have his price while he was yet in this world. A hush fell on the crowd. One man came forward to claim a few dirhams which were paid at once. [Ibn Hisham]

Equality

Muhammad (pbuh) asked people to shun notions of racial, family or any other form of superiority based on mundane things and said that righteousness alone was the criterion of one's superiority over another. It has already been shown how he mixed with everyone on equal terms, how he ate with slaves, servants and the poorest on the same sheet (a practice that is still followed in Arabia), how he refused all privileges and worked like any ordinary labourer. Two instances may, however, be quoted here:
Once the Prophet (pbuh) visited Saad Bin Abadah. While returning Saad sent his son Quais with him. The Prophet (pbuh) asked Quais to mount his camel with him. Quais hesitated out of respect but the Prophet (pbuh) insisted: "Either mount the camel or go back." Quais decided to go back. [Abu Dawood]

On another occasion he was travelling on his camel over hilly terrain with a disciple, Uqba Bin Aamir. After going some distance, he asked Uqba to ride the camel, but Uqba thought this would be showing disrespect to the Prophet (pbuh). But the Prophet (pbuh) insisted and he had to comply. The Prophet (pbuh) himself walked on foot as he did not want to put too much load on the animal. [Nasai]

The prisoners of war of Badr included Abbas, the uncle of the Prophet (pbuh). Some people were prepared to forgo their shares and remit the Prophet's (pbuh) ransom but he declined saying that he could make no distinctions. [Sahih Bukhari]

During a halt on a journey, the companions apportioned work among themselves for preparing food. The Prophet (pbuh) took upon himself the task of collecting firewood. His companions pleaded that they would do it and that he need not take the trouble, but he replied,

"It is true, but I do not like to attribute any distinction to myself. Allah does not like the man who considers himself superior to his companions." [Zarqani, Vol. 4 pg. 306)]

Kindness to animals

The Prophet (pbuh) not only preached to the people to show kindness to each other but also to all living souls. He forbade the practice of cutting tails and manes of horses, of branding animals at any soft spot, and of keeping horses saddled unnecessarily. [Sahih Muslim] If he saw any animal over-loaded or Milad he would pull up the owner and say,
"Fear Allah in your treatment of animals." [Abu Dawood]
A companion came to him with the young ones of a bird in his sheet and said that the mother bird had hovered over them all along. He was directed to replace her offspring in the same bush (Mishkat, Abu Dawood)
During a journey, somebody picked up some birds eggs. The bird's painful note and fluttering attracted the attention of the Prophet (pbuh), who asked the man to replace the eggs. [Sahih Bukhari]

As his army marched towards Makkah to conquer it, they passed a female dog with puppies. The Prophet (pbuh) not only gave orders that they should not be disturbed, but posted a man to see that this was done.

He stated, "Verily, there is heavenly reward for every act of kindness done to a living animal."


Love for the poor

The Prophet (pbuh) enjoined upon Muslims to treat the poor kindly and to help them with alms, Zakat, and in other ways. He said: "He is not a perfect Muslim who eats his fill and lets his neighbour go hungry."
He asked, "Do you love your Creator? Then love your fellow beings first."

Monopoly is unlawful in Islam and he preached that "It is difficult for a man laden with riches to climb the steep path that leads to bliss."

He did not prohibit or discourage the acquisition of wealth but insisted that it be lawfully acquired by honest means and that a portion of it would go to the poor. He advised his followers

"To give the labourer his wages before his perspiration dried up."
He did not encourage beggary either and stated that
"Allah is gracious to him who earns his living by his own labour, and that if a man begs to increase his property, Allah will diminish it and whoever has food for the day, it is prohibited for him to beg."
To his wife he said, "O A'isha, love the poor and let them come to you and Allah will draw you near to Himself." [Sahih Bukhari]
One or two instances of the Prophet's (pbuh) concern for the poor may be given here. A Madinan, Ibad Bin Sharjil, was once starving. He entered an orchard and picked some fruit. The owner of the orchard gave him a sound beating and stripped off his clothes. The poor man appealed to the Prophet (pbuh) who remonstrated the owner thus:

"This man was ignorant, you should have dispelled his ignorance; he was hungry, you should have fed him."
His clothes were restored to the Madinan and, in addition, some grain was given to him [Abu Dawood]
A debtor, Jabir Bin Abdullah, was being harassed by his creditor as he could not clear his debt owing to the failure of his date crop. The Prophet (pbuh) went with Jabir to the house of the creditor and pleaded with him to give Jabir some more time but the creditor was not prepared to oblige. The Prophet (pbuh) then went to the oasis and having seen for himself that the crop was really poor, he again approached the creditor with no better result. He then rested for some time and approached the creditor for a third time but the latter was adamant. The Prophet (pbuh) went again to the orchard and asked Jabir to pluck the dates. As Allah would have it, the collection not only sufficed to clear the dues but left something to spare. [Sahih Bukhari]

His love for the poor was so deep that he used to pray: "O Allah, keep me poor in my life and at my death and raise me at resurrection among those who are poor." [Nasai]

salaam brother

i read As-shama'i'l At-Tirmidhi with Sheikh Yaqoobi Al-Hasani and i remeber that there was a chapter on The Hair of the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him and in there were different narrations on the amount of grey hair the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him had... which was because He Peace Be Upon Him sometimes applied oil,to His hair so some of the His (Peace Be Upon Him) grey hair would get cover by the black hair. Also people saw Him at different times , some may have seen Him when there were just a few hairs and some saw Him when he had 17... im not sure if 17 was the maximum, will look through Shama'il' At'Tirmidhi again

The Khatamul Anbiya' is the epitome of the one who accepts servanthood...his love for all in his Ummah is more than we'll ever know. But do we reciprocate this unconditional love? Enter the Ikhwan. Who are they?


One day the Messenger of Allah (PBUH: peace be upon him) asked his companions: “Which of God’s creatures possess the most amazing iman (faith)?”. “The Angels,” answered his companions. “How would the Angels not have faith in Allah when they are always close to Him,” replied the Messenger in disagreement. “The prophets,” answered the other companions. “How would the prophets not have faith when words of God are revealed unto them?” the Messenger disagreed. “We - your companions?” the companions suggested. “How would you not have faith when I am always amidst you?” retorted the Messenger.

Finally the Messenger decreed: “The creatures with the most amazing iman are those who live after me. They have never met me but they declare faith in me. They love me more than they love their children and elders. They are my Ikhwan (Brothers). They read the Quran and are faithful to all its contents.” (Related by Abu Ya’la) “O Abu Bakr,” the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) asked, “Do you not long for my Ikhwan since they also love you because you are my companion?” (Related by Ibnu Hajar Asqalani). The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) continued: “Good tidings for those who meet and declare faith in me. And sevenfold good tidings for those who declare faith in me but have never met me.” (Related by Ahmad).

How can we fail to be encouraged by these words? In spite of everything, it is imperative that we believe in ourselves, and these words from our Prophet (s.a.w.) can help us do exactly that.

"attribute to his person whatever nobility you will, and ascribe to his worth whatever greatness you will,
For the superiority of Allah's Messenger has no limit that a speaker can express with his mouth
And how could one perceive his reality in this world, who belongs to a sleeping race distracted from him with dreams?
No perfume equals the dust (earth) which is touching his (Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam’s mubarak ) body, Glad tidings be to the person who smells it (the dust) and kisses it.

Thank you dear sister for 'getting the ball rolling' again...

Quote:

Muhammad (s) is a human being, but not like you and me. He is a jewel and everyone else is a rock. Big difference. You throw away a pebble and keep a diamond. So what is the meaning of the ayah, li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar, "to forgive you of sins you sent forward and what came later." We were reading the Mawlid in Indonesia and this verse came, Inna fatahna laka fathan mubeena. I am seeing that Indonesia is a country of mercy and piety among the Habaib (the Ahlu'l-Bayt of Indonesia), who are always praising the Prophet (s) and always that light is coming on them. In the recitation of Seerat an-Nabi (biography of Prophet [s]), they recite, "As soon as Prophet came from his mother's womb, he went into sajdah." Grandshaykh said that Prophet immediately went into sujood at the moment of his birth, immediately caring for his ummah, saying, "Yaa Rabb! Ummatee, ummattee. O my Lord! My nation, my nation! (I want them and they are full of sins!)"
[Shaykh Hisham Kabbani]

That quote from Shaykh Hisham's sohba contains many important messages regarding the true reality of the Prophet Muhammad sollallahu alaihi wa alihi wasallam.....

The Miraculous Birth of the Mercy to all Creations list of did you knows;

- Born in the year of the Elephant (570 AD), when Makkah was saved from the invading Elephant Army of Abrahah coming from San'aa, the Ababeel birds came to the rescue by throwing Sijjeel (fiery brimstones)...(Surah Al-Feel)

BUT DID YOU KNOW, at the moment of his birth:

- Light engulfed the whole night in Makkah that reached the lands of Sham (present day Jordan and Syria)
- unlike normal babies covered with amniotic fluids from the mother's womb, the Prophet came out completely cleaned, no umbilical cord, & fully circumsized
- the Prophet came out in Sujud (prostration) form with the right index finger pointing skywards
- the fire of Zoroastrianism (MAGIAN/MAJUSI) Monastery that burned an entire millennia suddenly were put out
- The giant pillars of Qisraa (Persian empire) palace came down crumbling, after defeat of the Persians the Muslims found out that it took almost a thousand men just to bring down one pillar
- the many idols in Makkah fell off its base and was found strewn all around
- his birth was witnessed by not only all the Archangels; it was also witnessed by our mother Sayyidatuna Hawa (Eve), Maryam (Mary), Asiah (the Pharaoh's wife who became Muslim )
- the Jews of Yathrib (Madinah) saw the bright star of the Prophet shining brightly in the night sky; they knew that the final prophet has arrived


NO, THE MERCY OF ALL CREATION IS NOT JUST A MAN....BUT WHAT ARE WE UNDERSTANDING FROM THE TERM "MERCY OF ALL CREATIONS?" < coming up next Insha Allah >

"Allahumma Solli Wasallim Wa Baarik 'Alaihi Wa 'Ala Aalih"

HOW DO WE EXPLAIN THE REALITY OF THE HOLY PROPHET sollallahu alaihi wa alihi wasallam AS MERCY TO ALL OF CREATIONS IN MERE WORDS?

Excerpts of the the very same Sohba mentioned above:

Only by Surrendering We May Occupy the Vessel of Safety
Saturday, Dec 25, 2010
Mawlana Shaykh Hisham Kabbani, Singapore

http://media.islamicsupremecouncil.org/ ... print.html



In Indonesia I explained some meanings from these verses of Holy Qur'an. A`oodhu Billahi min ash-Shaytaani 'r-rajeem. Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem.

إِنَّا فَتَحْنَا لَكَ فَتْحًا مُّبِينًايَغْفِرَ لَكَ اللَّهُ مَا تَقَدَّمَ مِن ذَنبِكَ وَمَا تَأَخَّرَ
Inna fatahna laka fathan mubeena li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar.
Verily (O Muhammad), We have laid open before you a manifest victory that Allah may forgive you your faults of the past, and those to follow. (al-Fath, 48:1,2)

I will ask someone who stayed in Syria many years (Shaykk Gibril Haddad) to transkate the meaning of this verse? ("Verily we opened for you a manifest opening.")

Allah is saying, "We opened for you, yaa Muhammad, an opening that is so clear." When Allah (swt) wants to give, does He give in small portions? When He says, "fathan mubeena," it is vast opening; it means that Allah is opening according to His Greatness! Can Allah's Greatness be limited? That means what He opened from the realities of His Creation, that no one created except Him, He showed His beloeved one what He created, and made him shahidan, a witness:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ إِنَّا أَرْسَلْنَاكَ شَاهِدًا
Ya ayyuha 'n-nabiyyu inna arsalnaaka shaahidan.
O Prophet! Truly We have sent you as a witness. (33:45)

“Witness” means someone who can see. So it means, "We are opening for you your eyes, yaa Muhammad, so that you can see from the beginning of Creation to its end. We have opened for you an immense opening, to be witness on whatever I have created and you are a prophet for them. I am sending you as a messenger for them and for Adam."

So when the Pen was ordered to write "laa ilaaha illa-Llah Muhammadan Rasoolullah," it asked, "Who is that Muhammad whose name You put with Your Name?" And Allah replied, "If not for Muhammad, I would never have created any Creation."

Allah said:

لَخَلْقُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ أَكْبَرُ مِنْ خَلْقِ النَّاسِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لاَ يَعْلَمُونَ
La-khalqu 's-samawaati wa 'l-ardi akbaru min khalqi 'n-naas wa laakina aktharahum laa ya`lamoon.
The creation of Heavens and Earth is indeed greater than the creation of Mankind, yet most of Mankind know not. (Ghafir 40:57)

Doctors and scientists know that the creation of human beings is so great that no one knows more than two or three percent of its functions. Take for example the kidney, that small organ. If your kidney fails, they will connect you to a large dialysis machine that will clean your blood in five or six hours, and then they have to give you vitamins and essential minerals (that were depleted). What is that secret in the kidney, which is smaller than a cup yet contains millions of pores? During dialysis, they can analyze the blood and filter out what is bad for the body and keep what is good.

That is what the Prophet (s) knew: inna fatahna laka fathan mubeena, "We have laid open before you a manifest victory." So you dive in the heart of the shaykh and you bring out treasures. You don't need summaries (referring to a rogue mureed who compiles summaries of the suhbahs), summaries are for kindergarten! If you want to be in kindergarten, you go for a summary. If you are a little bit higher... do kindergarten students have diapers or not? So summaries are for nursery school. You are in nursery school, and above that they don't have, and they are very far from the PhD program. To enter the heart of the shaykh is what is important!

li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar. Is the Prophet (s) ma`soom, infallible, or not? The Prophet (s) and all prophets are ma`soomoon, infallible, without sin. Yet Allah (swt) is saying, li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar, "to forgive you of sins you sent forward and what came later." Allah (swt) opened that big opening for the Prophet (s), to forgive Prophet his sins? Did the Prophet commit any sin? Allah’s uncreated ancient words, kalaamullah al-qadeemi, have no limits in carrying secrets. If you limit any interpretation or understanding, you are making a mistake. This does not refer to some scholars who malke English or Turkish or Russian translations. No, what is that language? It must be in Arabic; a light emits from every letter of Holy Qur'an and you will not see it until you reach "maturity", which is the ability to differentiate between jewels and stones.

Muhammad (s) is a human being, but not like you and me. He is a jewel and everyone else is a rock. Big difference. You throw away a pebble and keep a diamond. So what is the meaning of the ayah, li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar, "to forgive you of sins you sent forward and what came later." We were reading the Mawlid in Indonesia and this verse came, Inna fatahna laka fathan mubeena. I am seeing that Indonesia is a country of mercy and piety among the habaib (the Ahlu'l-Bayt of Indonesia), who are always praising the Prophet (s) and always that light is coming on them. In the recitation of Seerat an-Nabi (biography of Prophet [s]), they recite, "As soon as Prophet came from his mother's womb, he went into sajdah." Grandshaykh said that Prophet immediately went into sujood at the moment of his birth, immediately caring for his ummah, saying, "Yaa Rabb! Ummatee, ummattee. O my Lord! My nation, my nation! (I want them and they are full of sins!)"

When Allah (swt) said, Inna fatahna laka fathan mubeena, then, li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar, it means, "Whoever came before you with sins, and whatever sins Children of Adam committed, We know you are carrying that on your shoulders, asking Allah to forgive them, and We forgive them." So it is not implying Prophet's sins, but it refers to the sins of not only human beings, but every creature in this universe: trees, animals, birds, fish, stars, everything is going to be asked! And Prophet (s) is the messenger for all of them. Allah (swt) is saying, li-yaghfira laka Allahu maa taqaddama min dhanbika wa maa taakhkhar, "Whatever sins came before and by saying, 'Bismillahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Raheem. alam nashrah laka sadrak wa wad`ana `anka wizrak [94:1,2],' we took the load that you put on your shoulders for everyone; we are taking it and forgiving everyone of them."

O Muslims! Love your Prophet (s)! There is no safety if we don't enter his vessel, safeenat an-najaat, the "vessel of safety."

Then Allah (swt) said, wa maa taakhkhar, which means, "Yaa Muhammad! Whatever human beings and others that commit sins, I am forgiving them also (whatever came from your sin and whatever came after.)." And Prophet (s) never sinned, not before nor after, as he is ma`soom. So it means, "I (Allah) created them and before I created them I forgave them, yaa Muhammad."
==================


Subhanallah! :shock: Such is the magnificence of Allah's mercy....beyond comprehension.
