How can I describe who he is? This man who came with a message from God and changed the world forever. How is it possible that I can have so much love for him without ever meeting him?
Do you know that the very people that hated him and wanted to stop him from spreading the message of God called him the truthful and trustworthy?
Did you know many people became Muslim just through his excellence in manners and noble character?
With all this hatred at the moment I wanted to clarify who Muhammad (pbuh) is. It is so painful to see all this hatred for someone so beloved to me especially when they don’t even know who he was. What did he spend his life doing? How did he live? What type of person was he?
He was a man that taught racial equality, social justice, economic equity and women’s rights.
He was kind and never harsh or rude. Despite others constantly insulting and being rude to him. He always took the middle path and was never extreme in doing too much or too little.
Even though he went through so many hardships in his life, he was known as the smiling one, who always laughed and made others laugh and smile too.
He was a man who never hurt anyone and cared so much for everyone around him, that he would pray constantly for them. His concern was always for others. He taught us to treat others how we, ourselves, would want to be treated.
Due to his character and manners those around him loved him and even those who were against him were only against him because they did not want to follow his message. His neighbour would throw rubbish on him when he walked past but when she was ill he went to visit her and treated her with kindness.
I can just go on and on about him but I would be here forever. He is so beloved by all the Muslims in the world, I love him more than my parents, my husband, my friends and all you have to do is read about him to know why.
I will leave you with this short video…
