Islam is the oldest religion....'


Question:Hinduism is the oldest of all the religions and thus the, most pure, authentic and best of all the religions of the world. ?
Answer : Islam is the oldest religion Hinduism is not the oldest of all the religions. It is Islam which is the first and the oldest of all religions. People have a misconception that Islam is 1400 years old and that Prophet Muhammad  (Choicest blessing and peace be upon him) is the founder of this religion. Islam existed since time immemorial, ever since man first set foot on this earth. Prophet Muhammad  (Choicest blessing and peace be upon him) was not the founder of Islam. He was the last and final Messenger of Almighty God.

The oldest religion need not be the purest and the most authentic religion
A religion cannot be claimed to be most pure and authentic, only on the criterion that it is the oldest. It is similar to a person saying that the water he has kept in an open glass, in his house, outside the refrigerator, for three months is purer than the water which has just been collected in a clean glass, immediately after it has been purified.

The latest religion need not be the purest and the most authentic religion
On the other hand a religion cannot be claimed to be the purest or authentic, only on the criterion that the religion is new or the latest. A bottle of distilled water which is sealed, packed and kept in the refrigerator for three months is much purer than a bottle of water freshly collected from the sea.

For religion to be pure and authentic, it should not have interpolations, changes and revisions in its scriptures revealed from God

For any religion to be pure and authentic, its scriptures should not contain any interpolation, addition, deletion or revision. Moreover the religion’s source of inspiration and direction should be Almighty God. The Qur’an is the only religious scripture on the face of the earth which has been maintained it its original form. All the other religious scriptures, of all the other religions have interpolations, additions, deletions or revisions. The Qur’an has been in the memory of a multitude of people, intact in its original form ever since its revelation, and now there are hundreds of thousands of people who have preserved it in their memory. Moreover, if you compare the copies made by Caliph Uthman from the original Qur’an which is yet present in the museum in Tashkent and in Koptaki museum in Turkey, they are the same as the ones we possess today.

Allah  Subhana Wa Taala  promises in the Qur’an, in Surah Al Hijr, chapter 15 verse 9

"We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption)."


The oldest religion need not be best religion
A religion cannot be claimed to be the best religion only on the criterion that it is the oldest. It is similar to a person saying, that my 19th century car is better than a Toyota car manufactured in 1998, because it is older. He would be considered to be a fool to say that his 19th century car which required a rod to be turned in circles to start it, is better than a key-start 1998 Toyota car, just because it is older.

The latest religion need not be the best religion

On the other hand a religion cannot be called as the best religion only on the criterion that the religion is new or that it came later. It is similar to a person who says that my 800 cc Suzuki car manufactured in 1999 is better than a 5000 cc Mercedes 500 SEL manufactured in 1997. To judge which car is better, a person should compare the specifications of the car e.g. the power of the car, safety measures, the capacity of the cylinders, the pickup, the speed, the comfort, etc. 5000 cc Mercedes, 500 SEL car manufactured in 1997, is far superior and better than a 800 cc Suzuki (Maruti Suzuki 800) manufactured in 1999.

A religion is best, if it has the solutions to the problems of mankind

For a religion to be considered the best, it should have the solution to all the problems of mankind. It should be the religion of truth, and should be applicable to all ages. Islam is the only religion which has the solution to all the problems of mankind. e.g. the problem of alcoholism, surplus women, rape and molestation, robbery, racism, casteism, etc.

Islam is the religion of truth, and its laws and solutions are applicable to all the ages. The Qur’an is the only religious book on the face of the earth, which has maintained its purity and authenticity proving itself to be the word of God in all the ages. i.e. previously, when it was the age of miracles, literature and poetry and in present times when it is the age of science and technology. Moreover, Islam is not a man-made religion, but a religion revealed and inspired by Almighty God. It is the only religion acceptable in His Sight.

Question: Why do Muslims bury dead bodies instead of cremating them, i.e. burning them?

Answer:
Components of human body present in the soil
Elements that are present in the human body are present in lesser or greater quantity in the soil. Hence it is more scientific to bury a dead body, as it easily gets decomposed and mixed in the soil.

No Pollution
Cremating (burning) the dead body leads to pollution of the atmosphere which is detrimental to health and harmful for the environment. There is no such pollution caused by burying a dead body.

Surrounding land becomes fertile
To cremate a dead body several trees have to be chopped, which reduces the greenery and harms the environment and the ecology. When dead bodies are buried, besides the trees being saved, the surrounding land becomes fertile and it improves the environment.

Economical
It is expensive to cremate a dead body when tons of wood have to be burned. Annually there is a loss of crores of rupees, only because dead bodies are cremated in India. Burying dead bodies is very cheap. It hardly costs any money.

Same land can be utilised for burying another body
The wood used for cremating a dead body cannot be reutilised for cremating another dead body since it gets converted to ashes. The land used for burying a dead body can be reutilised for burying another body after a few years since the human body gets decomposed and mixed in the soil.


So why not all human beings start burying rather then burning....any logical person will like to be buried rather than burn in fire..

we can give 10 reason why one should not burn their dead..but we are hear to show the Positive things of our Religion not to pin point the bad things of other religions...

Zakat (Charity)
In Islam CHARITY is compulsory every person has to give 2.5%  of his annual savings in charity to the needy...It is one of the pillars of islam,
Islam is the only religion on the face of earth which not only tells us what should be a desirable society but it also shows us a way how can we achieve that state...


Islam like all other religion says Stealing is Not permissible...it lays severe punishment for robbers but it also says Zakat is compulsory, if a state or nation or country practices the islamic rule and pays 2.5% zakat of there annual sayings there will sure be NO POVERTY LEFT and inshllah there will be no stealing at all..

this is beauty of islam...follow the islamic rules and see the result...it is the best solution to all problems of manking


Sayyadina Hadrat Ali Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu held: "Of the most meritorious acts of a believer, and one of the most acceptable things to God is Zakat. It behoves everyone to give charity, because from amongst the acts of worship, this is the most pleasing to God."


In his sermons, Hadrat Ali Radi Allahu ta'ala anhu exhorted the people in the following terms:

"O ye people, send a part of your wealth to God so that it may stand you in good stead in the next world. Do not leave your entire wealth here so that it will become a source of annoyance to you in the next world."

Islam and Discrimination: A white has no superiority over a black (Equality in Islam)

According to the teachings of Islam, all mankind is from Adam and Eve; an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab, nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black, nor does a black have any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim, and that Muslims constitute one brotherhood and one humanity.

The best example of this is seen in HAJJ when every muslim from east and west north and south, stands together before god and asks for forgiveness,....even the king the prince or whoever it may be has to follow the same rituals as any other common man...

There is no Untouchability no Racism no Classes nothing of that sort in ISLAM.. that is the beauty of ISLAM


All human beings are equal in Islam, Only peity and righteousness can distinguish between muslims.



===========================================================
Racism is one of the severe diseases of human society in this age. Everyone remembers how black Africans were transported across the oceans, packed in specially designed ships, thought of and treated like livestock. They were made slaves, forced to change their names and religion and language, were not entitled to hope for true freedom, and were refused the least of human rights. Because among some Western people the attitude to non-Westerners has unfortunately changed little in modern times, the political and social condition of black people often remains, even where they live amid the native Westerners as theoretically equal fellow-citizens, that of despised inferiors.

When Allah's (AZZAWAJAL) Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, was raised as a Prophet, the same kind of racism, under the name of tribalism, was prevalent in Makkah. The Quraish considered themselves in particular, and Arabs in general, superior to all the other peoples of the world. Allah's (AZZAWAJAL) Messenger came with the Divine Message and proclaimed that no Arab is superior over a non-Arab, and no white is superior over black and superiority is by righteousness and God-fearing alone (Surat Al-Hujurat, 49:13). He also declared that even if an Abyssinian Black Muslim were to rule over Muslims, he should be obeyed.

Allah's (AZZAWAJAL) Messenger eradicated the problem of racial or colour discrimination so successfully that superiority is not by birth or colour or blood, but by God-fearing and righteousness.

The message of Islam is for the entire human race. According to Islam, Allah (AZZAWAJAL) is the God of the entire world and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a messenger for the whole of mankind. Islam unites the entire human race under one banner without any kind of discrimination.

Allah (AZZAWAJAL) says in Surat Al-Hujurat, "O Mankind! We have created you from a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is he who has most Taqwa among of you. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware." Noble Qur'an (49:13)
In surah Al-Room Allah (AZZAWAJAL) says, "And one of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your tongues and colors; most surely there are signs in this for the learned." Noble Qur'an (30:22)

With this verse, Islam declares equality among people as one human race, one humanity, that is because Islam respect a human for being a human not for any other reason; Islam does not distinguish between two races, or two groups of people, or between two colors, and the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) addressed the people signifying that concept during the last Hajj pilgrimage, saying: "O People! Your God is one; your father is one; no preference of an Arab neither over non-Arab nor of a non-Arab over an Arab or red over black or black over red except for the most righteous. Verily the most honored of you is the most righteous."


Not only did Islam emphasize the equality principle theoretically, but did it practically in some of the worship acts that translated this principle into a sensible fact that does not escape people minds, thus: in the mosques where Friday prayer is held once every week, as well as the five daily prayers; equality is exercised practically and all the differences vanishes among people. That is, whoever came to the  Masjid first, took his place in the front rows despite his financial states or position, and whoever come late, his place is late and if you look at any row among the prayer's rows, you would find in that row the rich and poor, the knowledgeable and the one with no knowledge, the Arab and the non Arab, no differences all the same in sight of Allah (AZZAWAJAL), their direction during prayer, as well as their reveled book, as their Lord is one and also their movements during the prayer following one Imam.

Also in the holy land where the annual Hajj pilgrimage and the Umrah is performed, the equality is even clearer and stronger that is because during prayer people may differ in their clothes but during Hajj pilgrimage and Umrah the Ihram situation oblige every one to only wear simple white clothes which equates the rich and the poor, the governor and governed, all walking around the Holy Kaaba asking one lord.

Also, another practical application of equality in Islam, is the equality among people in front of the law and regulations. What is allowed is for all people and what is forbidden as well upon all people. The obligations are upon everyone, and whoever deserved punishment gets it, regardless.

An example of such was when some of the companions (Sahaba) talked to Osama Bin Zaid, the favorite of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), to intervene for the sake of the well reputed woman from Quraish tribe who deserved punishment for stealing (that is cutting her hand), Osama Bin Zaid talked to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) got angry and said, "Those before you were districted, that is because the renowned is untouched when he steals, and the poor is punished, verily if Fatimah daughter of Muhammad stole, I would have cut her hand."


This is Islam: emphasizing the equality and applying it in the society since 1400 years ago, when during that time mankind used to suffer the worst distinction among people and individuals in society and readied the enslaving of the human to his brother the human. The eradication of racism consciousness is one of the outstanding moral achievements of Islam.


This is the secrete that made Islam and Muslims prevail nations in the past. It is a mistake to think that Islam prevailed only because Muslims like dying in the battles as other like to live. Islam did not prevail through battles only, but because Islam is a complete unique guidance for life, unique in it's rituals, beliefs, dealings and morals and from all with all that the religion of Allah is comprised, and with all that Muslims won and prevailed in the past, and with it Muslims can prevail and rule these days or any other time.


===========================================================

The following scene took place on a BA flight between Johannesburg and London.

Equality in Islam, Racism and IslamA white woman, about 50 years old, was seated next to a black man. Obviously disturbed by this, white woman called the air Hostess.

Madam, what is the matter, the air hostess asked?

You obviously do not see it then? White woman responded.

You placed me next to a black man. I do not agree to sit next to someone from such a repugnant group. Give me an alternative seat.

Be calm please, the air hostess replied.

Almost all the places on this flight are taken. I will go to see if another place is available. The air Hostess went away and then came back a few minutes later. Madam, just as I thought, there are no other available seats in the economy class. I spoke to the captain and he informed me that there is also no seat in the business class. All the same, we still have one place in the first class.

Before the white woman could say anything, the air hostess continued. It is not usual for our company to permit someone from the economy class to sit in the first class However, given the circumstances; the captain feels that it would be scandalous to make someone sit next to someone so disgusting. Air Hostess turned to the black man, and said. Therefore, Sir, if you would like to, please take your hand luggage because a seat awaits you in the first class. At the moment, the other passengers who were shocked by what they had just witnessed stood up and applauded.

This is a true story which is not usually told. If you are against racism, please send this message to all your friends

Women in Islam

2.   Islam uplifted women and gave them equality and expects them to maintain their status.

Islam uplifted the status of women and granted them their just rights 1400 years ago. Islam expects women to maintain their status.

Hijab for men

People usually only discuss ‘Hijab’ in the context of women. However, in the Glorious Qur’an, Allah  Subhana Wa Taala  first mentions ‘Hijab’ for men before ‘Hijab’ for the women. The Qur’an mentions in Surah Noor:

“Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: and Allah is well acquainted with all that they do.”
[Al-Qur’an 24:30]

The moment a man looks at a woman and if any brazen or unashamed thought comes to his mind, he should lower his gaze.

Hijab for women.

The next verse of Surah Noor, says:

” And say to the believing women that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty; that they should not display their beauty and ornaments except what (must ordinarily) appear thereof; that they should draw veils over their bosoms and not display their beauty except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons…”
[Al-Qur’an 24:31]

Islam and Neighbourhood (Neighborhood): Rights of Neighbours (Neighbors)

Islam and Neighbourhood (Neighborhood)The Noble Qur'an tells us that all of mankind is descended from one couple, Adam and Eve. Thus we are all brothers and sisters, and our differences in languages and colors are but a mercy that we might know one another. Language and race should never be a reason for discriminating against people.

A Muslim should maintain good relations with his relatives, but he should not unjustly favor them over others. Further, a Muslim must be good to his neighbors, no matter their religion. But the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) taught us that a "neighbor" is not just the one next door but includes all those up to forty houses in all directions - effectively a whole neighborhood.

An Ansar (emigrant) came to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and said that he has recently purchased a house in a particular area and that his nearest person was such that he had no hope of any goodness from him and that he felt unsafe from his mischief. The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) told Imam Ali  Aleh Salam , Salman Al-Farsi, Abu Zar Ghaffari and Miqdad ibn Aswad to go to the  Masjid and announce: "He is not a believer whose neighbour is unsafe from his mischief." They announced it thrice and then to the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) pointed towards forty doors to his right and forty to the left indicating that forty houses in every direction constitute ones neighbourhood. One is obliged to observe their rights.

This concern for our neighbors can take many forms. It means to ensure that our neighbors have the basic necessities, for a Muslim should not eat if his or her neighbor is going hungry. It means that Muslims should wish for their neighbors what they wish for themselves. It means sharing their happiness and sorrow. Further, it means to not spy on them and respect their privacy, to not gossip about them, to not harm them in any way, and to keep common use areas - such as apartment building entrances, streets and sidewalks - clean.

The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was told of a woman who prayed during night and fasted a lot during day and gave alms generously, but whose neighbors complained of her abusive tongue. He said that she would be in Hellfire. When the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was told of another woman who did not do all those extra acts of worship other than just compulsory (Wajib) but whose neighbors were happy with her, he said that she would be in Paradise. Thus we see the importance of being good to our neighbors, both in actions and words.

Imam Ali  Aleh Salam  says: A person is either your brother in faith, or your equal in humanity.

Islam and Neighbourhood (Neighborhood): Kindness to a Non-Muslim Neighbor

Kindness to a Non-Muslim NeighborThe neighbor holds a special status in Islam. Islam encourages Muslims to treat their neighbors in a gentle way that reflects the true and genuine spirit of Islam as exemplified in its tolerant aspect especially with people of other faiths. It makes no difference whether the neighbors are Muslim or non-Muslim. Ayesha, the Mother of the Believers, stated that she once asked the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him), "O Messenger of Allah! I have two neighbors. To whom shall I send my gifts?" the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) said, "To the one whose gate is nearer to you."

It is clear from the above Prophetic Hadith that Muslims are encouraged to not only treat our neighbors kindly, but also to exchange gifts with them. The wording of the Hadith does not indicate whether the one with whom we exchange gifts is a Muslim or not.

Below are ten tips on how to approach your non-Muslim neighbors in a kind way that exemplifies Islamic manners:

1. Being good to neighbors is not only restricted to those who share the same building with you. Your roommate at the dorm is your neighbor; the person sitting behind you or next to you in a bus or at a bus stop is your neighbor; the one sharing your office at work is your neighbor; the person enjoying fresh air next to you in a public garden is also a neighbor. You ought to treat all of those people kindly and socialize with them within the permitted scope of Shariah Islamic Law.

2. Introduce yourself and your family to your neighbors when you move into a new place or when new neighbors move in. This will also help to relieve any fears or tensions they may have about Muslims. Also, don't forget to say good-bye when you or they move away.

3. Care for them continually, especially at times of need and distress, as "the neighbor in need is a neighbor indeed." If a neighbor is elderly or chronically ill, offer to run errands or shop for him or her.

4. In dealing with neighbors, it is safer to deal with those of the same sex as yourself. This does not mean that you should stop socializing at work or school with your non-Muslim workmates or classmates of the opposite sex, but be aware of satanic snares. After-hours socializing should be with your same sex.

5. While socializing with non-Muslims, be cautious of becoming too lenient at the expense of your creed and principles. For example, don't go out drinking with them. They will respect you more for sticking to your principles than for breaking the rules.

6. In addition to sharing ideas, you can share meals with them by inviting them to dinner on the weekend or accepting their invitation to the same, provided that you let them know about your dietary restrictions (Halal and Haram) as a Muslim.

7. Conduct mutual visits so that the families can interact in a constructive way. If the discussion does turn to religion, focus on areas of common ground. For example, if your neighbors are Christian, then you should not enter into a futile argument with them about whether Jesus is God incarnate or not. Rather, tell them to what extent Islam honors all God's Prophets and Messengers as a whole, and that Jesus is granted a special status among God's Prophets and Messengers.

8. While socializing with neighbors, present your religion (Islam) in the best way. If you are faced with a difficult question or a distortion about Islam, do not be ashamed to stop for a while and tell them that you will try to contact a more knowledgeable person to seek the guidance regarding the issue raised. Thus, common grounds should be enhanced, and areas of dissension should never be raised.


9. If your neighbors show an interest in Islam, invite them to attend Islamic events, and even to accompany you to the  Masjid to see what it is like. It may be that their hearts become softened to Islam, and if they remain non-Muslim, at least you have succeeded in breaking the barrier. You can also visit the church where your neighbors pray if they invite you to do that, but here you should be cautious not to perform any act that your religion prohibits. In brief, be only a watchful monitor.

10. Always keep in mind the mighty reward that is in store for you in the Hereafter when you show kindness to a neighbor.

Masha Allah u people have covered some many good points in Islam..such as charity, cleanliness, good manners, .etc

For a company to launch a new product..they should be aware of the end users of the product…similarly to convince someone on islam one should understand the people one is addressing…

There are different kind of people….  There may be an antheist or an agnostic; or one may belong to any of the religious denominations that exist in the world today. One may be a communist or a believer in democracy and freedom etc etc

According to me if m trying to convince such a scattered class of people il try to convine them first on the noble character of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam….who has preached and given us Islam , the only true religion.

I thought this coz today Islam is treated as a religion of terror bcoz of some stupid and ignorant people ie TALIBANI’s…I am calling them ignorant bcoz their idealogy is totally different from the teaching of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam..

Our Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam was born in Arabia in the year 570 C.E. (common era), started his mission of preaching the religion of Truth, Islam (submission to One God) at the age of forty and departed from this world at the age of sixty-three.

During this short period of 23 years of his Prophethood, he changed the complete Arabian peninsula from paganism and idolatry to worship of One God, from tribal quarrels and wars to national solidarity and cohesion, from drunkenness and debauchery to sobriety and piety, from lawlessness and anarchy to disciplined living, from utter bankruptcy to the highest standards of moral excellence. Human history has never known such a complete transformation of a people or a place before or since - and IMAGINE all these unbelievable wonders in JUST OVER TWO DECADES.
In the 23 years that he spread his message, he offered the world truth, clarity and a sense of purpose. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaih wasallam is the only prophet whose life and work has been closely studied by scholars of all faiths. His daily life, his actions, his responses to situations are all extremely well documented. He is truly an example for to all of us to follow. Indeed following his example is required of us by God Himself, who says in the Qur’an: “In God’s messenger you have indeed a good example for everyone who looks forward with hope and awe to God and the Last Day, and remembers God unceasingly.” (33: 21)

Once the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaih wasallam climbed up a mountain and stated to the people of Quraysh, “If I was to warn you of an army behind the mountain that came to attack you, would you believe me?” They replied, “Yes, We find you the most truthful amongst us.” Then the Apostle of Allah sallallahu alaih wasallam informed them of the people of Quraysh.

“Punishment of Allah will soon be afflicted upon you. The wrath of Allah will descend upon you if you do not submit to him.”

From the above incident we can draw conclusion that the people of Makkah use u call our beloved Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam a truthful human being even b4 he declared his Prophethood…so if the person is truthful then no doubt his religion will also b truthful..

The revelation that came to him and the knowledge that he acquired were transmitted truly and accurately to his people, most of whom initially rejected it. Later they were to accept it with enthusiasm, realizing that he said nothing but the truth and join his growing band of followers. Thus the message of Islam spread quickly, and in a short period of time it began to give light to millions outside Arabia as well. It appealed to many.

It was a message that was exemplified by the character of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaih wasallam) — as a man, a leader, a father, an administrator, a lover of the poor and orphans, a friend of the unfortunate and a mentor. He stressed the need to take care of orphans, women and the poor. His acts were a beacon of light.

Today people are floundering in darkness. They don’t know what to do. They cling to values that have nothing to do with life. They join cults. For role models they look up to unworthy individuals — individuals badly lacking in moral values.
In our Islamic society we have many role models. Foremost among them is the last messenger of God, the Prophet of Islam —Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (sallallahu alaih wasallam). His life shines as a model for us to follow. No other person in history has had so much written about him. The virtues of the Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam, his life, his dealings with young and old, friends and foe set great examples for us all to follow.

The Prophet's character alone is a paragon of virtue, a model for all men. God says to the reader of the Quran: "You have indeed in the Messenger of God (Muhammad) a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is God and the Final Day." (33:21)

Ali Akbar, in his book "God and Man", says: "Great minds and teachers like Buddha and Christ could not present their lives as models for mankind to follow. One left the family while the other had none. One severed his connections with the worldly affairs altogether and the other had never entered into them. Their teachings are lofty but can be followed only by those who live an ascetic life like them. The human progress in acquiring knowledge of the Creator and the Universe and mastering elements and scientific research could never be possible if all people lived ascetic lives, and the world would come to an end in one generation as far as human beings are concerned if all practised celibacy. God Who is the Creator of mankind could not depute persons to advocate principles contrary to the laws laid down by Him for the procreation of His creatures.

"But the great model Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaih wasallam presents all phases of life to follow. As an orphan, as a shepherd, as a son, as a nephew, as father, as grandfather, as husband, as a citizen, as a neighbour, as a humanitarian and lover to children and orphans, as supporter and free worker for poor widows and needy persons, as tolerant teacher never offending susceptibilities or beliefs of others, as conqueror, as forgiver of those who persecuted him after they came under his power by his example of forgiving the people of  Makkah who had ruthlessly persecuted him, as master of those who came to him as slaves by freeing them at once, as a ruler and a teacher of good treatment which should be meted to those who differ from you in religion when they come under your protection by his own example, as the first giver in the world to women a right of full possession of property and inheritance from parents, sons, brothers and sisters and other relations; and in many other respects a model to follow."

We catch but a dimension of the Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam through the moments of compassion he extended to others; how he played with the poor orphaned boy when other children shunned that boy, how he prolonged his prostration out of consideration that his change in posture may inconvenience or hurt his darling grandson who had climbed on his back; how he commanded his army away from the anthill in order not to disrupt the ants’ activities; how he mended the wing of the injured little bird and brought it relief, how he blessed with Paradise the sinful woman who saved the life of a thirsty dog by bringing up water from the well in her shoes; how he intervened and prevented a man from abusing his wife by teaching him that “the best of men are those who treat their wives well”, how he patched his clothes, mended his shoes and did his daily household chores; how he wrestled with his nephew and raced with his wife; how he joked with the kids and carried the baggage of the elderly; how he stood up as the bier of a Jew was passing.

These are just a glimpse of the noble character of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallm..

We believe that our Prophet was a mercy of the entire universe…which includes man, animals, trees etc. lets see how?

Mercy for animals
Once the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam went to the garden of  an  Ansari  companion.  A  camel  who  was  shouting  was  tied  in  one corner   and   seemed   distressed.   When   the   camel   saw   RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam it started to jump and tears flowed through its eyes. RasoolAllah came closer to the camel and patted gently on its back  which  calmed  it  down.  He  then  enquired,  ‘Who  is  the  owner  of this  camel?’  When  the  owner  came  forward,  RasoolAllah  Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam said, ‘Allah Almighty has given you control over these animals thus it is your duty to treat them with mercy. Your camel just complained  to  me  that  you  do  not  feed  it  enough  and  take  excessive work which is beyond its capacity.’ [Abu Dawood, Vol 1]

Mercy for humans (non believer)

During the Battle of Uhud, the Prophet’s incisor was broken, . His lower lip was ruptured, and he had a bleeding wound on his forehead. He was constantly drying up the blood to keep it from falling upon the ground, saying, “If any of this blood falls on the ground, Divine Punishment would descend upon them [the Quraysh].” The situation weighed on the Companions, and they implored, “Why do you not pray against them?” He replied, “I have not been sent to damn people. I have been sent as a caller and a mercy. O, God! Forgive my people for they know no better.”[34]

These are some of the examples of the mercy of our Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam…if I keep on writing…..the list is never ending

Before taking departure from this world he spoke on various topics his last sermon, I would like to highlight some important points :-

All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action.

For womens he said :

Treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers”.

The reason for choosing these points are, many people thinks that womens in islam has no right…and are oppressed…m not writing further as this is already covered by imran bhai…

Secondly it’s a common grapewine that muslims are terrorist and they hate other religion especially Christianity…for them this is the answer that we are told that all humans are one..no one is superiour except in piety and good action…wich is hardly seen in today’s world…

bannedhiji says in “Young India”
When I closed the 2nd volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of the great life."

My situation is just opposite…ive written so much but its still very less…… as the prestige of our beloved Prophet sallallahu alaih wasallam is beyond human’s imagination..
