Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) Best Of Characters
Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh
If there is a verse of the Quran that muslims of today need to know about it is this one:
وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَىٰ خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ
AND SURELY (THE PROPHET) IS THE BEST OF CHARACTER
The prophet, Mohammed (saw) was sent to this earth as an example for all of mankind to follow; what a tribute that Allah (swt) mentions him in the words we have highlighted above. The Quran does not say prophet (saw) hajj, prays, fasting, jihad or anything else was of the best but particularly mentions his CHARACTER. One must ponder why this is.
Muslims of today have been overly focused on the outward beauty but as a whole we have forgot about what makes a true believer, which is our inner beauty, having the right character is the utmost importance.
Having the right manners involves, knowing when to talk and when to be quiet, being a considerate individual, being trustworthy, honest, sincere person, have traits of compassion, humbleness, mercifulness and the list goes on are the foundation of being a sound muslim.
We have detached ourselves from focusing on becoming believers with sound character, instead as ummah as whole we have become the opposite of what we should be. Dishonesty, craftiness and being conniving is what prevails among the ummah today.
Until Muslims realize that they must become people of sound character, following the example of the prophet (saw) then we should not expect Allah (swt) blessing to shower us as individuals or as a whole, we are falling extremely short of standards expected as true believers.
One of the things which we are very quick to run after are our rights, how many times you hear it, they are my Islamic rights or I have a right to this and the other, yet we forget the first principle is have you fulfilled your rights and duties you owe, as the Prophet (saw) said “The best of people are those who are the best in fulfilling rights.”
