Prophet Muhammad was our last Prophet as Muslims in the world. Entire his life our Prophet Muhammad SAW life in simply. He has kind of hearts and good manners. He’s perfects human thats Allah has createth.Character is much more than just reputation or what others to see about us. Character is who we really are, even no one is watching. Everyone has character even our Prophet Muhammad SAW.
Prophet Muhammad SAW has a best character and no one is like Him. The key factor that brings reverence and respect to Prophet Muhammad SAW in both the Islamic and the non-Islamic circles is His character. This is on of His hadiths in the following way :
“God has sent me to perfect good manners and to do good deeds.” (Bukhari)
Before we tell you about some major character of Prophet Muhammad SAW every Muslims must know about four mandatory attributes of Prophet SAW. These attributes, however, apply to all prophets and not just to Muhammad, for no prophet can be a liar, untrustworthy, hiding the message, or stupid.
Verse 33:21 (Al-Ahzab) said:
“Verily in the messenger of Allah ye have a good example for him who looketh unto Allah and the Last Day, and remembered Allah much.”
Below these are the four mandatory :
Siddiq means truth. Truth is a noble character that adorns the morals of a believer in God and in unseen things. Our Prophet Muhammad is truthful and trustworthy is well known. the Prophet is not known to tell lies. In the Messenger of Allah, not only his true words, but his actions are also true, in line with his words. So it is impossible for the Messenger of Allah to be a liar, a liar and so on.
Verse 53:4-5 (An-Najm)
“And he does not say it (Quran) according to the desire of his lust. His speech is nothing but revelation revealed to him. “
Even his archenemy, Abu Jahal, confirms this simple fact when the letter said: “It is not that I accuse you of lying, but I have no faith in the religion that you bring.
Verse 19:45 (Maryam)
“And make mention (O Muhammad) in the Scripture of Abraham. Lo! he was a saint, a prophet”.
It verse tells about proof of the truth in the event when Prophet Ibrahim (AS) said to his father was the true word.What is worshiped by his father (Prophet Ibrahim) is something that does not provide benefits and certainly harm, stay away.
Amanah means trustworthy. Prophets and Messengers are people who are Messengers of Allah SWT are given the trustworthiness to receive and convey the revelation of Allah. It is contained in verses 26:106-107 below :
“When their brother Noah said unto them: Will ye not ward off (evil)? No! I am a faithful messenger unto you.”
The people of Mecca were nicknamed “Al – Amin” (trusted) to Prophet Muhammad long before He was appointed as Prophet. This nicknamed given to Him because while a business is handed over Him, our Prophet believes that the bussiness that will be carried out as good as possible. The people of Mecca always believed Him and people know that Prophet Muhammad SAW never lied.
Verse 7:68 (Al-A’raf)
“I convey unto you the messages of my Lord and am for you a true adviser.”
It’s impossible for the Prophet to be treasonous to the person who gave him the trust. The Prophet never used his position for His personal or His family interest but He did was for the benefit through of Islam the lessons of Allah SWT. There was a history when Prophet Muhammad SAW offered kingdom, golds, women by Quraisy to leave His duty to spreads Islam and He said :
“For God’s sake … if they can put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left hand to leave my holy duty, then I will not abandon it until God wins (Islam) or I’m destroyed for it”
Although the Quraysh threaten to kill the Prophet Muhammad, but He is not afraid and still carry out the message that He received. Every Muslim should be as trustworthy as our Prophet SAW.
Tabligh means conveying revelation to its people. All the words of Allah Almighty addressed by human and delivered by the Prophet Muhammad. None of the verses that hidden into His people.
Verse 72:28 (Al-Jin)
“That He may know that they have indeed conveyed the messages of their Lord. He surroundeth all their doings, and He keepeth count of all things”.
Verse 80:1-2 (Abasa)
“He frowned and turned away(1)Because the blind man came unto him(2).”
In Surah Abasa, there’re a story about blindman named Ibn Ummi Maktum came to Prophet Muhammad SAW then he said “Guidance me, O Messenger of Allah.” At that time Prophet Muhammad was facing with the polytheist of Quraisy, so He turned away from him (Ibn Ummi Maktum) and continued to talk with the polytheist of Quraisy. Ibn Ummi Maktum said ” Am I disturbing You?” and the Prophet replied “No”. So, this verse goes down as on the Prophet’s deeds. (Narrated by At-Tirmidhi and Al-Hakim from ‘A’ishah. It is narrated by Ibn Ya’la from Anas.)
Actually what the Prophet did was a natural thing. When talking in public or with someone, of course we do not like to be disturbed by others. But for the standard of the Prophet, that is not enough. It is therefore that Allah SWT has advised our Prophet Muhammad SAW. As a tabligh, even though the verse quipped it, Prophet Muhammad SAW keep telling us and it is impossible that the Prophet Muhammad SAW hides the revelation.
Fathonah means an intelligence . In making Muslims be better and always in a right away Allah SWT grants intelligence to Prophet and the Messenger so that They could have many ways to fight and spread the religion of Allah SWT and inviting peoples to the right ways and blessed by Allah SWT.
As a proof there’re an story about an intelligents of our Prophet Muhammad SAW when every circles in Mecca constrain their desire to placed Al – Hajr Al- Aswad (The black stone) over the Ka’bah. Then Our Prophet SAW mediating with all peoples that argue to grabbing the end of the cloth and then Prophet puts the black stone in the middle and all that peoples carrying that cloths until the cloth was over the Ka’bah.
The intelligence of our Prophet is a silver lining that giveth by Allah SWT to Him with wisely. This like the verse said in 02:269, as follows:
“He give wisdom unto whom He will, and he unto whom wisdom is given, he truly hath received abundant good. But none remember except men of understanding”.
In giving an efforts to provide and education needed an intelligent leader who that able to delivering things to His students. Therefore Allah SWT has made our Prophet Muhammad SAW an ummi with an acceptable languange by the audience. That intelligence made by our Prophet was proof as leader must have the intelligence and the intelligence created in a leadership’s style of Prophet and nobody other humans have it, like us.
