Noble Character Traits

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was sent to complete the noble character traits, as he said:

إِنَّمَا بُعِثْتُ لِأُتَمِّمَ صَالِحَ الأَخْلاقِ‏.

”I was sent to perfect the noble character traits.”

Abu Hurayra, https://sunnah.com/urn/2202730

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was not only the best man ever born in the world but also the greatest benefactor to humanity. He aroused among men the humanely qualities that were rare then and today. He taught that all men and women are the sons and daughters of Adam and Eve. All are equal, no difference among them on the basis of race or colour.

He - may Allah bless him and grant him peace - granted women honour in society. Before his mission women were taken as a commodity (also today in many places), they were not respected. The Prophet showed women respect. He said, "The best man amongst you is one who is best for his wife".

He - may Allah bless him and grant him peace - spread the message of love, compassion and equality to all people on the face of earth.
Before his arrival the concept of equality among different tribes, races and nations was an alien concept. If seen in this context, Muhammad is not the benefactor of Muslims alone, but that of all the people of the world and for all times to come.

Man In Need of Guidance

  • The whole of the religion of Islam is guidance.
  • Self-purification is through all of what Allah has prescribed in His religion.

Relationship With Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

The blessings and peace of Allah upon him.

Mercy, Compassion

Allah said in the Holy Quran:

{We have but sent you as a mercy to all the worlds!}
21-107

The universality of the quranic message is based on this concept of mercy and compassion. If any individual or group or sect discards the primacy of mercy and compassion (rahmah ) then this is against the heart of Islam.

1. Sending Prophet Muhammad Is an Act of Mercy

First of all, the sending itself of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was a merciful act by God, because he is the last one (as the seal of prophets) to have received and spread the Divine message.

2. He Is a Cause for Happiness in Both Abodes

The Prophet ﷺ is a mercy, because he is a cause for happiness in both the life of this world and the Hereafter - and the prohibitions and commandments of the Law are all for the purpose of obtaining mercy.

3. A Mercy for All People, All Worlds

The Prophet ﷺ is a mercy not only for the believers, but for all people, even for the disbelievers in that the punishment for their disbelief (kufr) will not be implemented on them immediately:
Indeed Allah warded off from the disbelievers (by virtue of the Prophet ﷺ) the hastening of the punishment that came upon the nations who disbelieved in their Messengers before him, so they may be afforded more time in this life to repent from their sins and turn to Allah سبحانه و تعالى .

4. For Intercession on the Day of Judgement

Mercy also refers to the privilege of intercession on the day of Judgement given to the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.

His Perfect Character Traits

There is absolutely no way to hide the fact that the Prophet - on him the blessings and peace of Allah - is the most worthy of all people, the greatest of them regarding his position and the most perfect of them in good character and virtue. Know this and may Allah enlighten our hearts and increase our love for this noble Prophet!

If we had to examine all those perfect qualities which cannot be acquired and which are part of one's constitution, it will be understood that the Prophet ﷺ has each of those qualities.

بُعِثْتُ لِأُتَمِّمَ حُسْنَ الْأَخْلَاقِ

The Prophet ﷺ explained: "I was sent to perfect the good character."
