THE CONDUCT OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD ﷺ
Allah Ta'ala states in The Holy Quran:
'And indeed. You are upon the excellent manners'
(Surah Al-Qalam-verse 4)
Hazrat Aa'isha(Radi Allaahu Anha) was once asked about the conduct of Prophet
Muhammad ﷺ. She(Radi Allaahu Anha) replied 'qaala khuluwquhul-Quran'. The inner-self of Prophet ﷺ is Quran. The conduct of Prophet ﷺ is a virtue of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ which cannot be understood by the people of this world. Just as the 'arsh' is glorious, the conduct of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is as magnificent.
Let us have a glimpse of the conduct of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ:
After the conquest of Mecca (Fatah e Mecca), the infidels who had done so much injustice and cruelty to Prophet ﷺ were now standing facing him, wondering what Prophet ﷺ would do to them. But the beloved Messenger of Allah ﷺ said to them that he didn't have any criticism or enmity towards them. Prophet ﷺ asked them to leave, and Allah Ta'ala will forgive them.
The daughter of a well-known personality Hatim Tai, came to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. Prophet ﷺ put a veil to cover the head of the daughter. The people said: 'she is the daughter of an infidel'. The Messenger of Allah replied: 'a daughter is a daughter, be she a Muslim or an infidel'.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was going somewhere and saw an old woman with a luggage. Prophet ﷺ asked her where she was going. She replied that she was leaving Mecca to protect her faith. An orphan has declared Prophethood and talking ill about the idols. The Messenger of Allah helped her with her luggage and walked her to her destination. When the Prophet ﷺ was leaving, she asked him his name. He ﷺ told her that he was Muhammad, because of whom you left Mecca. The old woman said that such a kind, true and helpful person cannot be in the wrong. She accepted Islam and became a Muslim.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was resting in the wilds. An infidel walked up to him with a sword and asked 'who is going to protect you from my sword'. Prophet ﷺ replied: 'My Allah'. The infidel started trembling upon hearing the name of Allah. His sword fell and Prophet ﷺ picked it up and asked: 'now who is going to protect you from this sword'. The infidel knelt down, recited the kalmia and became a Muslim.
conduct of Prophet Muhammad
the walking and talking Quran. His conduct cannot be described in the senses of
this world. It is majestic and too magnificent.
