Message of the Life of the Prophet To Present-Day Muslims

Obviously, the world was not a deserted place at the time of the upbringing of the Holy Prophet (upon him blessings and peace). It was not a graveyard. The wheels of life were moving at that time too with very little difference from what they are now. Business was carried on almost in the same manner, and the people, generally, were satisfied with the things around them and did not feel the need for change.

Haddab ibn Khalid and Shayban ibn Farrukh narrated to us: they said: Hammad ibn Salamah narrated to us: from Thabit al-Bunani and Sulayman al-Taymi: from Anas ibn Malik: that Allah’s Messenger (Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:“I came – and in the narration of Haddab ‘I passed’ – by Musa the night I was taken on the night journey (Isra’) at the red dune and he was standing, praying in his grave” (Sahih Muslim)

 

Love for the Prophet is a Condition of Faith

Love for the Prophet Muhammad is a measure of one's iman (faith and inner conviction) and our iman is completed and perfected only when our love for the Prophet exceeds our love for everything else in this world, including our own lives. The Holy Qur'an says:

"The Prophet is preferable for the believers even to their own selves..." (33:6)

Prophet Ahmad Al-Mahmoud Muhammad Mustafa [Muhammad, (p.b.u.h.)]
- The Seal of the Prophets -

What Quran said about him?

Say: He is Allah, the One! • Allah, the eternally Besought of all! • He begets not nor was begotten. • And there is none comparable unto Him. [Surah Al-Ikhlas (Chapter of Sincerity), Verses 1-4]

Lo! We revealed it on the Night of Predestination. • Ah, what will convey unto you what the Night of Power is! • The Night of Power is better than a thousand months. • The angels and the Spirit descend therein, by the Permission of their Lord, with all decrees. • (The night is) Peace until the rising of the dawn.[Surah Al-Qadr (Chapter of Power), Verses 1-5]

 

The Last Sermon of The Prophet

The last sermon of the Prophet-peace be upon him- is known as Khutbatul Wada'.  It is mentioned in almost all books of Hadith. Following Ahadith in Sahih Al-Bukhari refer to the sermon, and quote part of it.  See Al-Bukhari, Hadith 1623, 1626, 6361) Sahih of Imam Muslim also refers to this sermon in Hadith number 98.  Imam al-Tirmidhi has mentioned this sermon in Hadith nos. 1628, 2046, 2085.  Imam Ahmed bin Hanbal has given us the longest, and perhaps the most complete version of this sermon in his Masnud, Hadith no. 19774.

 

Dispelling myths about Mawlid

 

There are three types of bid'ah - obligatory, forbidden and desired.

Al-Hafiz Abu al-Khair as-Sakhawi, may Allah have mercy upon him, stated in his book of Fatwas: “None of the pious predecessors, who lived in the first three centuries of Islam, used to celebrate Mawlid [the way it is celebrated today]. People started commemorating it later.
