There are a few great ones in history that people know either for their best part or the worst. To the best part, our holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad (ﷺ) has been one of the most outstanding personalities ever found in the history of mankind. He is the perfect example in history. In the book “HUNDRED INFLUENTIAL PERSONS IN HISTORY” by Michael H. Hart, Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) is in 1st position.
WHY HAS HE (ﷺ) BEEN PLACED ON THE TOP OF THE LIST?
To answer it, he proved himself the greatest in Social, Political, Economic, and Spiritual beings. Islam is the religion of peace and prosperity. He was the one who laid the foundation stone of this holy religion. In a nutshell, Islam is not limited to spiritual well-being only. It teaches man to lead a perfect life; politics, social mobilizing, trading, values, welfare, kindness, modesty, justice, distribution of inheritance, and brotherhood. Connecting to our motive of the topic, he was the true role model in his life for others.
HOW A ROLE MODEL?
He led the Muslim army as a commander to fight against infidels in his life. There he proved his skills as a military strategist. He used to solve disputes if raised nearby. Therefore, he portrayed himself as a peacemaker. The purpose of his life was to spread education. Hence, it reflected him as an educationist. He made the hostility into cardinal relation among Muslims to live in love and peace. So he is known as a socialist. His life experienced great avenues of trade and partnership. Henceforth, he is better known as a great trader.
Everyone must keep him as a perfect life example, mentioned in the Sunnah. Though, he always lived a mediocre life. He did not bother teasing anyone in his life. He used to speak softly to the elders and youngers as well. He lived his life in modesty and humbleness. He always took orphans as his own. There is a Sunnah “whoever has no blood relation in the world is mine regarding ties. Not only Muslims but Jews and other religious people used to respect him and trust him for what he had been.
Such a kind and loving man has never been seen in my life so far. He never shouted at anyone. He was kind-hearted nature. Even he tried to help those who used to irritate him. He never lied in his whole life.
