The Exemplar Beyond Compare – Muhammad Mustafa
Mankind was perplexed in its darkest hour that Allah, glory unto Him, sent him as a prophet, offering him thus as a present, a relieving mercy to the world, just when it was grappling at the throes of oppression and gloom. Raised by Allah from the distant horizon, the Prophet Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallama was like a glittering star shining above a world densely clouded by the ignorance of a society more brutal, heedless and disruptive than beasts.
The Prophet Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallama, who is the zenith of the chain of creation, came into this world
on Monday, the 12th of Rabi al-Awwal, which corresponds to the 20th April of 571. He was born just
before sunrise. With his birth, divine mercy flooded into this world. The colors of morning and night changed. Feelings became deeper. Words, friendships and pleasures were opened up to infinity. Everything gained a new meaning and acquired a new joy. Idols were shaken and shattered. In Madayin, the land of the
glorious kings of Iran, palaces and towers were destroyed. The water of lake Sava receded, and the
whole lake dried up, as the muddy waters of oppression began to vanish. Hearts were flooded with this showering of divine mercy and blessings. Read More…
Such A Mercy He Was – Moral Legacy Of The Prophet Muhammad
Such a mercy he was that his compassion and beneficence surrounded all humanity, even all creation. Such a mercy he was that he was granted to all souls and minds as a fountain of life, love and wisdom, knowledge, and learning adorned with endless blessing. Such a mercy he was that the Quran, a guide to the true path, was endowed through him. Such a mercy he was that he became unique among messengers in that he was the dearest to Allah and was granted with the spiritual night journey to heavens. Such a mercy he was that without him, all worlds would turn to a desolate desert. Such a mercy he was that the origin of creation emerged with his glorious being. All previous messengers came to know his glorious and blessed being. Such a mercy he was that all beauties bear reflections from him. No flower blossoms without having a piece from his light. None would exist without him. Read More…

Manners of the Prophet Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallama
There is no human being under the sun that practiced what they preached as well as the Prophet did. If you would like to know how someone really is, then ask his/her family. Facades can impress strangers, but they cut no ice with his parents or wife. Yet, look at what the Prophet’s Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallama family said about him. In answer to a question addressed to Lady Aisha about the manners of the Prophet Salla Allahu ‘Alayhi Wa Sallama, she said, “His character complied with the Qur’an.” Read More…
