Muhammad (PBUH)

MUHAMMADPeace and Blessings of Allah Be Upon Him

The last Messenger of Allah

You may be an atheist or an agnostic or you may belong to any of the religious denominations that exist in the world today. You may be a communist or a believer in democracy and freedom. No matter what you are, and no matter what your religious and political beliefs, personal and social habits happen to be

YOU STILL MUST KNOW THIS MAN! S. H. Pasha

Muhammad

Muhammad

He was without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue. If ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a right divine It was Mohammad (PBUH), for he had all the power without instruments and without its support. He cared not for dressing of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life." Bosworth Smith

He was by far the most remarkable man that ever set foot on this earth. He preached a religion, founded a state, built a nation, laid down a moral code, initiated numberless social and political reforms, established a dynamic and powerful society to practice and represent his teachings, and he revolutionized the worlds of human thought and human action for all time. His name was Muhammad (PBUH) and he accomplished all these wonders in the unbelievably short span of twenty-three years. S. H. Pasha

In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and Compassionate.

From Muhammad, the servant and Messenger of Allah, to Hiraql,

the Emperor of the Romans.

Peace be upon the one that follows righteousness. After this, I invite you to the fold of Islam. Therefore, if you desire peace, accept Islam.

If you accept Islam, Allah shall reward you double and if you refuse

to do so, the responsibility for the transgression of the entire nation, shall be yours.

O people of the Book! Leave aside all matters of difference and dispute, agree on a matter which is equally consistent between you and us; and it is that we should not worship anyone except God and that we should neither associate anyone with Him, nor make anyone else as our god. If you refuse it, you must know that we, in all circumstances, believe in the Oneness of God.

Muhammads letter to Hiraql (Caesar)

Emperor of Romans

Born in Makkah (Saudi Arabia) in the year 570 AD

Married at the age of 25 to Khadija, a widow aged 40

Bestowed Prophet-hood at the age of 40

Called people to the truth and the oneness of Allah

Laid the foundations of a society based on Divine guidance

Say: Allah's guidance, is the true guidance. We are commanded to submit as Muslims to the Lord of all the worlds. (al-An'am: 71)

He who originates creation and then regenerates it and provides for you from out of heaven and earth. Is there another god besides Allah? Say: "Bring your proof if you are being truthful. (an-Naml: 64)

Muhammad

PEACE AND BLESSINGS OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM

We were covered in darkness

Before Muhammad..

PEACE AND BLESSINGS OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM

brought us the light

Muhammad..

this is a Book We have sent down to you so that you can bring mankind from the darkness to the light, by the permission of their Lord, to the Path of the Almighty, the Praiseworthy.

"And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, leave it. And fear Allah: truly Allah is severe in punishment. " [59:7]

"No, by your Lord, they do not believe until they submit to your adjudication in all disputes between them, then they do not find themselves oppressed with your decisions and they completely submit." [4:65]

It is not befitting for a believing man or woman, when a matter has been decided by Allah and His Messenger, to have any option about their decision. [33:36]

The only saying of the faithful believers, when they are called to Allah and His Messenger to judge between them, is that they say: 'We hear and we obey'. It is such as these who will attain success. [24: 51]

What the Quran says:

his forehead was wide, skin was soft, eyes were black, the hair of his eye lashes was profuse, when he smiled his teeth shone like a light, his lips were beautifully shaped, his beard was thick, his neck was neither long nor short

he had a body formed in perfection and uniqueness

Muhammad

..generous, beneficial, compassionate, forgiving, and brave

as if the brightness of the sun had shone from his blessed face

when he walked it seemed as if he was descending to a lower place

.possessed a character of exquisite beauty and charm.

.. between his shoulders was the seal of prophecy.

great riches would come to him, and yet he lived in a state of povertyfire would not be lit in his house for many days.

he led small numbers into battles against thousands,

and yet he would decisively defeat them

Muhammad

.he wiped the blood from his face and said: O Allah! forgive my people for they do not know

his sittings were of knowledge, perseverance, patience, modesty, and trust

he busied himself with the worship of Allah and loved doing deeds that would please Allah

he slept on a mat of hay and a pillow filled with course fibers.

..the greatest man that ever lived.

Jafer (RA), a companion of the Prophet at the court of a Christian King in Abyssinia, said:

He called us to worship God alone... he commanded us to speak the truth, to honor our promises, to be kind to our relations, to be helpful to our neighbours, to cease all forbidden acts, to abstain from bloodshed, to avoid obscenities and false witness.

Your majesty! We were ignorant people, worshipping idols, eating carrion, oppressing neighbours, brother fighting brother, the strong dominating the weak, when amidst us was raised a man (Muhammad) whose nobility, integrity and trustworthiness were already well-known

Muhammad

"Circumstances changed, but the prophet of God did not. In victory or in defeat, in power or in

adversity, in affluence or in indigence, he is the same man, disclosed the same character.

Prof K.S Ramakrishna Rao; Mohammed The Prophet

Muhammad & Religion

O you who believeObey Allah and his Messengerso that mercy may be bestowed upon you

One day you will appear before Allah and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness

Worship Allah, say your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can

Do not make permissible that which Allah forbade, and forbid that which Allah has made permissible

Treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers

Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you

No man has any right to lord over other men; all men are equal, whatever their origin, colour or nationality

The learned ones are the heirs of the prophets- they leave knowledge as their inheritance; he who inherits it inherits a great fortune

Hold-fast to the book of Allah and my Sunnah

No prophet or apostle will come after me and no new faith will be born

The Message:

O you who believe! Fear Allah and keep your duty to Him. And let every person look to what he has sent forth for tomorrow, and fear Allah. Verily, Allah is All-Aware of what you do. [Al-Hashr : 18]
