The outstanding qualities of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing be upon him, have been enunciated in the Qur’an from different perspectives.
All such statement clearly emphasize that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the source of light from whom the Muslims should take guidance. They should emulate his exemplary character and take his moral life as ideal. This is the way that ensures success to Muslims in both world and this is the way the rightly guided Muslims adopt whenever a Muslim deviates from it; he surely forsakes the straight path.
If a Muslim wishes to bring his life close to the Prophet’s model, he must have two qualities in him. First he should have a deep attachment with the Prophet (pbuh) which would enable him to hold the Prophet (pbuh) dearer to heart than all else in the world. He should have a sincere love for the Prophet (pbuh) – the kind of love that the companions possessed. They gladly sacrificed their lives for the love of the prophet (pbuh).
Second, one should try to emulate the Prophet’s model as best as possible. He should try to learn about the Prophet’s moral excellence – his sympathy with human beings, his honestly in dealings, his desire to do to those who hurt him, his concern to seek Allah’s pleasure, his being mindful of the hereafter, his desire to help everybody as much as possible in all matters relating to this life as well as the life hereafter – so that he could take guidance from it in all walks of life.
But it is not easy for a common person to find out details about the prophet’s life from books. Some books are very scholarly and erudite and contain details that require a great deal of time and expertise to benefit from them. Hazrat Maulana wrote this book, which contains details from the life of the Prophet (pbuh) exhibiting his moral qualities and underscoring his tireless efforts in preaching. It benefited the audience very much as it contained the narration of the practical events from the Prophet’s life.
