It brings tremendous prosperity, health, happiness and success in this
and the next world.
Allama Sakhavi (radi Allahu anhu) has written in his book that Abdullah
bin Abdul Hakam saw Hazrat Imam Shafi'i (radi Allahu anhuma) in
a dream after his death and inquired about life after death. Imam Shafi'i
Allahu anhu) told him that because of the continuous recitation of

of the highest grade in Heaven and forgave him. Hazrat Imam Muzni (radi
Allahu anhu) has also narrated exactly the same story.

Durood Shareef is always a cure for all calamities in the world of worldly
affairs. It was taught by Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) himself. To recite this Durood Shareef 70 times during days
of calamity, turmoil and trouble, is a must. It works wonders.
great Scholar, Saint, Jurist and author, Imam ibn-Faikihani (radi Allahu
anhu) says that there was once a pious man called Sheikh Moosa Zareer
Allahu anhu). He embarked on a voyage by ship. Due to a heavy storm,
the ship started sinking. All the passengers on board started crying and
clamouring, but Sheikh Moosa Zareer (radi Allahu anhu) went to sleep.
He saw the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in his dream
and the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) directed him and
the passengers to recite Durood-e-Tunajjina 1 000 times. Sheikh Moosa Zareer
Allahu anhu) got up and started the recitation. As soon as he finished
300 Durood Shareefs, the storm subsided and the ship was saved. The other
ship on the high seas sank, but this ship reached its destination safely
and soundly. This miracle was a sufficient eye-opener for the members of
the ship. It was by the Grace of Allah Ta'ala and Durood-e-Tunajjina that
all were saved.
the Saints have unanimously given verdict that Durood-e-Tunajjina is the
best cure of all ills and all calamities of this world.

Durood Shareef is a very sacred one. If it is recited after every prayer,
it is said that the reciter will receive the Sawaab equivalent to the recital
of the entire Holy Quran. After reading the verses of the Holy Quran, this
Durood Shareef should be recited 3 times.

Allah! Shower Thy blessings and beneficence on Muhammad, Thy creature and
Thy Messenger, and shower beneficence on all men of faith and women of
faith, and Muslim men and Muslim women".
Durood Shareef is a special one. Hazrat Abu Saeed Khudri (radi Allahu
anhu), a close companion of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam), says that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) said: "Whoever does not possess wealth to give in charity,
should recite this Durood in his Du'a. It will become a source of (spiritual)
cleanliness for him".
Abu Huraira (radi Allahu anhu) says that the Holy Prophet (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) said: "Allah has said, 'If you spend I shall
spend on you'". This means that if you spend your money on others -
the poor, sick, needy and the orphan - Allah will give you in abundance.
But, what if a man has nothing to give in charity? By reading Durood-e-Sadaqah,
it will suffice.
SALLI ALA MUHAMMADININ NABI YIL UMMI YI WA AALIHI WABAARIK WA SALLIM.
Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad, our chief the unlettered Apostle and

Abu Hurairah (radi Allahu anhu), a close companion of Sayyiduna
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), has said that if a person
recites this Durood eighty times on Friday (after evening prayers), then
his sins equivalent to 80 years will be forgiven.
is a very important Durood Shareef which brings forth immediate success
and satisfaction to the heart and the mind.
Zarar bin Auzar (radi Allahu anhu), another companion of the Holy
Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) says that he used to recite this
Durood Shareef and fight with the non-believers. In every battle, he saw
that success kissed his feet, and he never lost any battle on any day.

Durood Shareef was very dear and near to Hazrat Ghaus-e-Azam, Sheikh Abdul
Qaadir Jilani (radi Allahu anhu) of Baghdad Shareef. He ended all
his lectures, recitations and writings with this Durood. It is for this
reason that it is called Durood-e-Ghausia. It is very sacred, very important,
very effective and 100% success.
Saints says that if a man recites this Durood Shareef 10 times in the morning
and 10 times in the evening, Allah Ta'ala fetches him nearer and nearer
and loves him a lot. The reciter becomes a Saint himself. Apart from this,
he will be safe from all the catastrophes of the world. The Mercy of Allah
will start pouring upon him endlessly.

Hazrat Royafai (radi Allahu anhu), a very close companion of the
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) has revealed
that once Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said:
"There is a Durood which if anyone recites, then I shall definitely come
to his help on the final Day of the Judgement".
Durood is the following:
SALLI ALA MUHAMMADIW WA ANZILHUL MAQADAL MUQARRABA INDAKA YAWMAL QIYAMAH.
Allah! Shower Thy blessing on Muhammad and make him enter the highest place
which is the greatest before You on the Day of
is written in "Bukhari Shareef" that after hearing the prayer call, Azaan,
if anyone recites the following Durood then he will certainly receive the
Holy Prophet's (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) mercy and assistance
on the Day of Judgement.
another narration, Hazrat Abu Darda (radi Allahu anhu) says that
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) himself used
to recite this Durood Shareef after hearing the Azaan. He says that the
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used to read this in
such an audible voice that those sitting besides him used to hear it.
Durood is the following:
RABBA HAZIHID DA'WATIT TAAA MATTI WAS SALAATIL QAA'IMATI AATI MUHAMMADINIL
WASILATA WAL FADEELATA WAB'ASHU MAQAMAM MAHMUDANIL LAZI WA 'ADTA'U.
Allah! For the sake of this call of prayer and for the sake of this prayer,
give Thy assistance to Muhammad, our master, and make him seated on the
most exalted place which You had promised, i.e. the Maqaam-e-Mahmood".
Saeed Ahmed Savi (radi Allahu anhu) says there is one Durood Shareef
which is just like actual light. In fact, it is light in itself. If recited
once, the reciter obtains the reward for 100 000 Duroods.
a person is faced with trouble, he or she should recite it 1 500 times
daily and all his or her troubles are bound to disappear.
Abu Abideen (radi Allahu anhu) says that if a man recites this Durood
daily, the love of Allah Ta'ala and a very high position will be given
Shaikh Ahmed Malool (radi Allahu anhu) says that this single Durood
Shareef is equivalent to 100 000 Duroods.
Durood is the following:
SALLI WA SALLIM WA BAARIK ALA SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADIN NURIZ ZAATI WA SIRRIS
SAARI FI SAAA'IRIL ASMAAA'I WAS SIFAAT.
Allah!Send actual blessings and
grace on Muhammad, our master, who is light and this secret is spread up
in all things in every corner and in every name and fame".
Hazrat Abdullah ibn Abbas (radi Allahu anhu), a companion of the
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), says that Sayyiduna
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said that if a man recites
the following Durood Shareef once, then for the coming 1 000 days the Angels
of Allah Ta'ala will be busy in writing reward for the reciter of this
Durood. This Durood Shareef is a very rewarding one. By reciting it only
once, the Angels go on writing good deeds in the account sheet of the reciter
for full 1 000 days. What a great reward and what a great return?
Durood is the following:
ANNA MUHAMMADAM MA HUWA AHLAHU.
Allah! Give reward to our Hazrat Muhammad the reward which is benefitting
as he deserves".
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) taught this
Durood Shareef to Hazrat Qabisa bin Mukharib (radi Allahu anhu)
on a particular occasion. If any Muslim man or woman recites this Durood
Shareef once, then Allah Ta'ala opens all the four Doors of Heaven for
him. The reciter is at a liberty to enter into Heaven from any door he
chooses. Hazrat Qabisa (radi Allahu anhu) used to only recite this
Durood is the following:
SALLI ALA SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADIW WA ALA AALI SAYYIDINA MUHAMMADIW WAH DINI
MIN INDIKA WA AFYID ALAYYA MIN FADLIKA WA ANSHUR ALAYYA MIR RAHMATIKA WA
ANZIL ALAYYA MIM BARAKAATIKA.
Allah! Shower your blessings on our Master Muhammad, and his Family, and
give me exclusive guidance and shower grace and favours, and spread your
kindness on Muhammad and favours on him."
in India an Aalim had passed away and it was observed that for one month
sweet fragrance used to arise from his bed and from his entire house. People
enquired about this mystery. His son-in-law said that the Aalim used to
recite Durood Shareef every Friday night in his house. The fragrance was
as a result of the recitation to the Durood Shareef.
another incident, a calligrapher died. His family members saw him, who
was a great sinner, after his death in their dream sitting in Heaven with
full pomp and dignity. On enquiry, he said that he gained all these benefits
because he used to write Durood whenever the name of the Holy Prophet (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) used to appear.
Zardaq (radi Allahu anhu) says that when the writer of the book
of Durood Shareef died, for one month the fragrance of flowers used to
arise from his grave.
is reported in "Rahhatul Quloob" that once there was a Sultan who
became very ill. Six months passed by without any cure in sight. A few
people went to the Sultan and told him that Hazrat Sheikh Abu Bakr Shibli
Allahu anhu) had arrived in the city. The Sultan requested the great
Saint to visit and and to make Du'a for his health. Sheikh Abu Bakr Shibli
Allahu anhu) visited the Sultan on his request for he knew that the
Sultan was very generous to his subjects and that he was also a very pious
person. When Sheikh Abu Bakr Shibli (radi Allahu anhu) sat next
to the bed of the Sultan, he assured the Sultan that he would recover very
soon. Sheikh Abu Bakr Shibli (radi Allahu anhu)
then recited a few
Durood Shareefs and passed his hands along the body of the Sultan. A few
minutes later, the Sultan awoke as if from a dream. He felt as if he had
never been sick.
Egypt, there lived a pious man whose name was Abu Said Khayyat. He used
to remain isolated from the rest of the world. After some years, people
saw him sitting in the company of a great person, Hazrat Ibni Rashiq
(radi Allahu anhu). The people of the town were astonished and enquired
about his presence. He disclosed that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) told him in a dream to associate himself with the
meetings of Hazrat Ibni Rashiq since in quite a large number of Durood
Shareef was recited in his meetings.
day a person from among the Bani Isra'il passed away. The people refused
to bury him. They threw his body on a rubbish heap. They all considered
him to be a great sinner.
that moment, Hazrat Musa (alaihis salaam) received the Revelation
from Allah Ta'ala, "O Musa! One of my chosen slaves has passed away.
The Bani Isra'il have thrown his body on a rubbish heap. Command your people
to retrieve the body. Bath him and give him a proper burial".
Hazrat Nabi Musa (alaihis salaam) saw that person, he immediately
recognised him. Obeying the Commands of Almighty Allah, Nabi Musa (alaihis
salaam) then proceeded to give the person a proper bath and burial.
Upon completion of this task, he asked Allah Ta'ala the reason for such
an unusual command. Allah Ta'ala said: "O Musa! You are correct when
you say that this person was a sinner. According to My Divine Command he
was entitled to punishment. However, one day, while he was reading the
Taurah, he came across the name of My beloved Habeeb Muhammad. He then
kissed the name and sent salutations upon My Habeeb. It is due to this
action of his, O Musa, that I have blessed him with Jannah".
Sufyan bin Aienna (radi Allahu anhu) says that Hazrat Khalaf
(radi Allahu anhu) had a friend who was a student of Islamic Law. One
day, all of a sudden, he died and Hazrat Khalaf (radi Allahu anhu)
saw him in his dream on the same night. It was seen that this student of
Islamic Law was sitting on the throne of honour, pomp and dignity, clad
in beautiful golden clothes.
Khalaf (radi Allahu anhu) inquired about this exclusive and extraordinary
honour. The student said that this was all because of his loud recitation
of Durood Shareef at the time when the Prophet's (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) name was mentioned during the tuition of his Islamic Law
studies. Allah Ta'ala counted the Durood Shareef as well as the sins. Every
Durood Shareef that was recited loudly was millions of times bigger and
heavier than all the sins. So the Salawat (Durood) won all this.
Abi Sulaiman (radi Allahu anhu) says that he saw his father, who
was a great sinner, in a dream after his death. Much to his great surprise,
his father was in an excellent position in Heaven. When Hazrat Abi Sulaiman
Allahu anhu) inquired about that great reward, his father told him
that it was all due to the recitations of Durood Shareef over the name
of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) at a time
when the name was written in the books.
Hazrat Kaab Ahbar (radi Allahu anhu), a great scholar of the Taurat
says: "Allah revealed to Hazrat Musa (alaihis salaam) saying, 'O Musa,
if on this earth there were no such people to glorify and praise Me, I
shall not cause one drop of water todescend
from the Heavens, and I shall not cause one seed to grow ...' and he mentioned
several other things and then said, 'O Musa, do you desire to be nearer
to Me than speech is to your tongue, or thought is to your heart, or nearer
than your soul to your body, or nearer than your eyesight to your eyes?'
Musa (alaihis salaam) replied: 'Yes, indeed, O Allah!'. Allah Ta'ala said:
'Then recite much Salawat on the Rasool Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)'."
is written in "Nuzhat-ul-Majalis" that a man fell sick and was about
to die. He was shivering and fearing the tortures of the grave and the
tortures of the Day of Judgement. All of a sudden, a pious man caught hold
of his hand and told him that he should be perfectly at ease as the Durood
Shareef which he had recited in abundance during his life time is certainly
to come to his rescue. The man, thereafter, died very peacefully.
a passenger bus travelling from Mir Purkhas to Hyderabad, Pakistan, collided
with a truck loaded with heavy machinery tools. About 120 passengers were
travelling in that bus and all but one of the passengers was badly injured.
That one man was reciting Durood Shareef on the Holy Prophet (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) at the time of the collision. When the journalist
and the members of the police team later interviewed this man, he disclosed
that he was constantly reciting Durood on Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam) and Allah Ta'ala saved him. A similar incident
took place in a bus travelling from Karachi to Hyderabad.
Hafs Samarqandi (radi Allahu anhu) writes in his book, "Rownaqul
Majaalis": In Balkh there lived a merchant of great wealth and substance.
When he passed away, his two sons divided his estate among themselves equally.
Among the inheritance there were three hairs of Rasoolullah (sallal
laahu alaihi wasallam). Each one took one. The elder brother suggested
that they cut the third one in half, each then taking one piece. This suggestion
filled the younger brother with distress and he exclaimed, "That shall
never be done. The blessed hair of Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
shall not be cut". The elder then suggested, "Will you be satisfied
that these three hairs come to you as your portion of inheritance, while
I take the rest of the estate?" The younger brother agreed to this
with great pleasure and satisfaction. The elder brother then acquired all
that the father had left behind. The younger brother had the three hairs.
He kept those hairs on his person at all times. Very often he took them
out, looked at them and recited Salaat upon the Nabi (sallal laahu alaihi
long thereafter, the elder brother had squandered and exhausted all his
wealth, while the younger one became very wealthy. After some time the
younger one died, someone from among the saintly ones saw a dream wherein
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) appeared to him and said,
there be anyone with any kind of need, let him proceed to the grave of
this person, sit down there and beg of Allah his need". (Qawlu Badee)
same story is told in "Nuzhatul Majaalis", but with a slight addition.
The story there says that when the elder brother became a pauper and saw
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in a dream. He complained
to Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) of great poverty.
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) told him: "O unfortunate
one, you turned away from my hair and your brother accepted them and whenever
he looked at them, he recited Salawat on me. For this reason, Allah had
made him most fortunate, both in this world and in the Hereafter".
When the elder brother awoke, he went forth and became one of the servants
of his younger brother.
In "Nazhatul Majaalis", it is narrated that Hazrat Abu Haa'mid Qazwaini
(radi Allahu anhu) said: A man and his son were on a journey. On the
way, the father died and his face was transformed to that of a swine. The
son, seeing this, cried bitterly and prayed to Allah. Soon the son fell
asleep and saw a man telling him, "Your father used to consume interest
(usury) and it is for this reason you see his face thus. But rejoice for
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) interceded on his behalf because
whenever he heard his holy name he recited Salaat on him. Through the intercession
of the Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), he has been made to return
tohis original form".
while Hazrat Fareeduddin Data Ganj-e-Shakr (radi Allahu anhu) was explaining
the excellence of Durood Shareef, a few Faqirs came to him. They told him
that they were travelling to perform the Hajj and that they had no money
for food and for the journey. The great Saint then offered them a few seeds
of eaten dates upon which he recited the Durood Shareef. When the Faqirs
looked at the date seeds, they were surprised to see that it changed into
pieces of gold.
is reported in "Al-Qolul Badi" that a lady once approached Hazrat
Sheikh Hassan Basri (radi Allahu anhu) and asked him whether it
was possible to see her deceased daughter in a dream or not. The great
saint ordered her to go home. Before sleeping, she was asked to read four
Rakaah of Salaah and in each Rakaah, after Sura Fatiha, she was to recite
Sura Kaafirun once. She was told to continue reading the Durood Shareef
after the Salaah till she fell off to sleep.
she did all this, that night, she saw her daughter in her dream. She was
shocked to see her daughter in terrible pain and anguish. She also saw
that her daughter was locked by chains of fire and was completely surrounded
told Hazrat Hassan Basri (radi Allahu anhu) about her dream and
he advised her to give some Alms. After a few days, Sheikh Hassan Basri
Allahu anhu) himself dreamt of a young girl sitting on a throne and
wearing a gold crown. When she asked the great Saint whether he recognised
her or not, he replied that he did not. She then said: "I am the daughter
of that woman who had related to you her dream". Sheikh Hassan Basri
(radi Allahu anhu) then told her that according to her mother, she
was in the pit of Hell and asked her how she reached that position.
girl replied: "O Friend of Allah! About 70 000 others and myself were
being punished by Almighty Allah by His Justice. But one day, a lover of
Nabi Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was walking by. As he passed
by our graves, he recited the Durood Shareef and then conveyed the Sawaab
of the Durood Shareef to us. Almighty Allah accepted the Durood Shareef.
As a result of this, all of us who were in punishment were saved and granted
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) occupies an exalted,
everlasting and the most unique position in the religious history of mankind.
Of all the Founders of Religion only Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) is the first and the last to claim that the Message
which he brought from Allah Ta'ala to mankind is absolutely complete and
final, that his dispensation shall remain in force till the end of the
world, and after him no Divine Messenger will come to modify, add, subtract
or abrogate any of his teachings. In him, the institution of Prophethood
attained its full, final and most perfect form.
shows that the world from the beginning has not produced any other man
who can rival the Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
in the field of his teachings, his actions, his deeds or practical way
was Hazrat Muhammad's (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) grandest contribution
to the elevation of his fellow-men that he re-affirmed the sovereign principle
of Monotheism and universal brotherhood of man transcending all barriers
that people erect in ignorance and fear. Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) arose in the midst of a society that was cruelly barbarious,
which had no culture, no manners, no society and no civilisation. Humanity
was coming very close to calamity. Imagine the same society is today the
noble torch-bearer of a new and excellent civilisation. This is one of
the main miracles the Prophet ofIslam
laahu alaihi wasallam) performed and world history bears testimony
to this truth. In a short span of 23 years he brought under one banner
a most barbarous tribe spread over 2 000 000 square miles of a very remote
region of the world.
is a universal fact that Hazrat Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
is the only Prophet in whose honour praises have been sung by all other
religious leaders and some have rather recommended to their followers to
follow the path of this great Prophet. People like Guru Nanak, the spiritual
head of Sikh sect, and George Bernard Shaw, the philosopher, are such personalities.
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) accomplished what he
undertook in his own short span of life with limited means and all round
adversities, trials tortures and tribulations. The task that he accomplished,
the work that he did, the manners and the character that he exhibited,
and above all, the way in which he completed this stupendous task, is itself
a clear proof of his being the last and the living Messenger of Allah whose
religion is perfect, character blotless and complete, and teachings marvellous
in all respects.
he preached appealed to man's reasons and rational faculties rather than
to mere sentimentalism, fanaticism, irrationality and superstition. He
showed what was crystal clear.
he was apostle, philosopher, reformer, religious head, statesman, orator,
commander, soldier, administrator, and the head of state, he never sat
an inch above the place where his followers used to sit, or ate a morsel
more than his Companions ate or wore what was superior than what others
used to wear.He was a selfless and sincere friend, perfect guide, graceful
companion, loving teacher, an impartial judge and above all a simple and
straight forward person. He sat in such a simple attire and mixed up so
freely and simply with all the common people that the foreign delegations
visiting his capital used to inquire from others as to who the Prophet
of Islam was. Can any head of the state or any religious head in any part
of the world boast to possess such an amicable nature? Can any head of
state be so courageous?
has known many great and glorious civilisations. The main amongst them
being the Chinese civilization, Greek civilization, Roman civilization,
Marxism and the Imperialistic. None owes its origin and establishment to
a single individual. Nor can it be counted as everlasting. Moreover, these
civilisations of the world covered a certain field and certain part of
the world. All the civilisations were basically collective efforts of many,
but Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) gave Islamic
civilisation single-handedly for all times to come.
the hills of Makkah, there was a heavenly glow. The birth of our Prophet
laahu alaihi wasallam) was an earth-shaking event in the year 570 A.D.
Born in the most backward and uncivilized city of Makkah in the Middle
East, lived only 63 years in this world, remained unlettered throughout,
but changed the destiny of the entire humanity. The whole culture of humanity
and the existence of human race was revolutionised during these 23 years
of his Prophethood and throughout the world he was the only one single
person with multiple capacities who could successfully carry out this stupendous
task in such a short span of time and amidst untold adversities. He was
the Prophet who uprooted Polytheism once for all.
father, Hazrat Abdullah (radi Allahu anhu) and mother, Bibi Aaminah
Allahu anhu), passed away after his birth. His grandfather, Hazrat
Abdul Mutallib (radi Allahu anhu), who took care of him, too soon passed
away. He was thus an orphan. Dai Halimah (radi Allahu anha) took care
of him for full five years in the desert. But no one knew at that time
that this shy, sweet and sublime orphan will grow up to be the greatest
and the last Prophet of Allah and show the world the real path to salvation
in the most simple and straight-forward style. They never knew that he
is Mercy for them as well as for all the worlds and all the generations
and all ages so long as the world lasts. Allah Ta'ala says in the Holy
Quran: "We sent to you not but as a Mercy for all mankind".
personality of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
the most perfect and profound in history. A personification of the moral
code of life as enshrined in the Holy Quran, he created a moral society
and a just State that blended the spiritual with the temporal in the most
beautifully balanced synthesis. This was the only Prophet whose words and
deeds were 100% alike. He preached what he and his Companions practised,
he treated the King and commoner alike. He was sweet, simple, civil and
kind to each and everyone. He never hurt the feelings of even his deadliest
us see how some great men, who were not Muslims, but fascinated by Sayyiduna
Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), have described him before
Hadly, Sir Charles Archibald, Thomas Carlyle, H.G. Wells, Gibbon, George
Bernard Shaw, Guru Nanak, Napoleon Bonaparte, Mahatma Gandhi, Bertland
Russel, Dozy, Michael H. Hart and a countless number of historians, philosophers,
authors, statesmen and orators have painted a marvellous picture of the
Prophet's (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) personality and echoed
to salute him, his preaching and his practices.
In a number of religious books of other religions, extraordinary record
of the doings of the Holy Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam)
and prophecies about his birth can clearly be seen. For instance, in Sanskrit
religious books the following description is vividly written: "O People!
Listen to this sympathetically, the man of praise (Muhammad) will be raised
amongst the people whose loftiness of position touch the Heaven and lowers
it". (Sanskrit Holy book)
the Greek philosopher, told his followers that a man will come from Arabian
land, introduce a new religion of purity and peace. He will come earlier
and bring prosperity to each and every one.
the book "Prophet of East", the famous writer of Asia, Diwan Chand Sharma,
writes that Muhammad (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was the soul
of kindness and his influence was never at all forgotten.
Prime Minister, Mr James Callaghan, said on the 5th of February 1979 in
a programme "World this Week" on 1978 and events in 1979 in a television
interview with B.B.C. that, "traditions, faith andbelief
of Prophet Muhammad's religion, Islam commands great support and are indeed
very worthy beliefs".
the famous book, "The 100 Great", Sayyiduna Rasoolullah's (sallal laahu
alaihi wasallam) name has been selected to be first of all others.
The writer, Mr Michael H. Hart, writes that he is the only one in the world
who is the greatest in the worldly affairs as well as in the ecclesiastical
are thousands of the authors of the world, including Russians, who have
placed Sayyiduna Rasoolullah's (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) name
on the top of the Law Givers of the World.
Muir writes: "All agree in ascribing to the youth of Muhammad (peace
be on him) a modesty of truth and purity of manners rare amongst the people.
Endowed with refined mind and delicate taste, reserved and humble, he lived
much within himself. The fair character and honourable bearing of unobtrusive
youth was the approbation of his fellow citizens and by common consent
received the title of 'Al Amin' - The Trustworthy. Even those who opposed
him agreed to this title".
Marcus Dods writes in his book, "Muhammad, Buddha and Christ": "Certainly
Muhammad had most important characteristics of the Prophetic order. He
saw truth about God which fellow men did not see, and he had an irresistible
inward impulse to publicise this truth. In respect of this latter qualification,
Muhammad may stand first in comparison to most courageous of the heroic
Prophets of Israel. For truths sake he risked his life, he suffered daily
persecution for years and eventually banishment, the loss of the property,
separation of his fellow citizens and of his friends, he suffered in short
as much as any man can suffer short of death. No bribe, threat or inducement
could silence him".
Gilman, in his famous book, "Saracens", writes: "The day Muhammad's
(peace be on him) greatest triumph over his events was also the day of
his grandest victory over himself. He freely forgave the Koraysh. Muhammad's
victory was in very truth one of religions and not of politics, he rejected
every token of personal homage and declined all legal authority and when
the naughty chiefs appeared before him he asked, 'what you can expect at
my hands? ' 'Mercy O generous brother.' 'Be it so. You are free', he exclaimed".
the book, "The History of Intellectual Development", Mr John William Draper,
says: "A Prophet was born at Mecca in Arabia, the man who of all men
has exercised the greatest influence upon human race".
Charles Edward Archibald was a Lieutenant in the British Royal Defence
Corpse. He was also the President of the Royal Selsy Conservative Society
of Britain. He was so much influenced by the life and works of Muhammad
laahu alaihi wasallam), the Prophet, that he embraced Islam on 20th
December 1923. Abdullah was his new name. He was a popular writer, thinker,
statesman and was familiarly known as Sir Abdullah Hamilton. He has written
volumes on Islam, and in praise of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi
Davenport says: "There is no doubt that amongst all Lawgivers and Conquerors,
there is not a single one whose life story is found in more details and
authenticity than that of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)".
A.K. Germanus, a well-known historian and author of Hungary, who was also
for a few years in association with Rabindranath Tagore, embraced Islam
and his new name was Abdul Karrim. This was all due to the influence of
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah's (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) teaching
and his practical life which he studied thoroughly.
number of other non-Muslim authors of Europe, Asia and Africa have also
written volumes on the Prophet of Islam. Only a cursory glance at these
books will show as to how minutely they have studied the life of the Holy
Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) and reached at a definite
conclusion that he was the greatest of all. Some of them have declared
the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) as the President
of all the Prophets of Allah.
Johnson paid his tribute to Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi
wasallam) in the following words: "His purely historical character,
his simple humanity, claiming only to be a man among men, his intense realism,
avoiding all mystical remoteness; his rejection of miracle; the thoroughly
democratic and universal form under which his idea of the Divine monarchy
led him to conceive the relations of men; the force of his ethical appeal;
... all affiliate Muhammad (peace be upon him) with the modern world".
Bernard Shaw opines: "I believe that if a man like Muhammad (peace be
upon him) were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would
succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed
peace and happiness".
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) shed a brilliant light
on all problems with which humanity has had to tackle and grapple. His
sayings deserve to be studied by all those who want justice, equality and
brotherhood established upon earth.
us inform our western world that their Prophet Jesus (I'sa alaihis salaam)
declared in the most explicable terms to his followers, thus, "O Children
of Israel, surely I am the Messenger of Allah to you verifying that which
is before me of the Torah and giving the good news of a Messenger of Allah
who will come after me his name being Ahmad (Muhammad)".
historians of the world have whole-heartedly admitted that Prophet Muhammad
(sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) is that supreme model of human conduct and
behaviour that we are enjoined to emulate and imitate. "As regards all
standards by which human greatness is measured, we may ask, is there any
one greater than Prophet Muhammad?" (Lamartine)
lived 13 years at Makkah and 10 years in Madina Shareef. He lived the most
simple life, he kept all his Companions close to him and all the 23 years
were his years of hard toil and continuous exertion. He fought battles
and wards, won them, managed the affairs of the State and gave justice
to friend and the foe alike, and his words had a magical impact upon life
action and behaviour of all humanity.
only 10 years that he lived in Madina Shareef, he destroyed idolatry, uprooted
all evils from the society, raised woman from the status of a chattel to
a complete legal equality with man, eradicated drinking and immorality
which had till then disgraced the human race, made men in love with faith
sincerity and absolutely honest dealings, transformed tribes who had been
for centuries content with all kinds of ignorance into a people with ever
increasing thirst for knowledge, and for the first time in human history
made universal human brotherhood a fact and principle of common law. The
life of the Holy Prophet of Islam infact was a miracle in itself judging
the above facts.
on the personality of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam),
Sir Stanley Lane-Poole says: "In his habits he was extremely simple,
although he bestowed great care on his person. His eating and drinking,
his dress and his furniture retained, even when he had reached the fullness
of power, their almost primitive nature. The only luxuries he indulged
in were arms, which he highly prized, and a pair of yellow boots, a present
from the Negus of Abyssinia. Perfumes, however, he loved passionately,
being most sensitive to smells. Strong drinks he abhorred.
was gifted with mighty powers of imagination, elevation of mind, delicacy
and refinement of feeling. He is more modest than a virgin behind her curtain,
it was said of him. He was most indulgent to his inferiors, and would never
allow his little page to be scolded whatever he did. Ten years, said Anas,
his servant, I was about the prophet, and he never said as much as 'uff'
was very affectionate towards his family. One of the boys died on his breast
in the smoky house of the nurse, a blacksmith's wife.He
was very fond of children; he would stop them in the streets and pat their
little heads. He never struck anyone in his life. The worst expression
he ever made use of in conversion was 'What has come to him? May his forehead
become darkened with mud!' When asked to curse someone he replied, 'I have
not been sent to curse, but to be a mercy to mankind'.
visited the sick, followed any bier he met, accepted the invitation of
a slave to dinner, mended his own clothes, milked the goats, and waited
upon himself, relates summarily another tradition.He
never first withdrew his hand out of another man's palm, and turned not
before the other had turned.
was the most faithfully protector of those he protected, the sweetest and
most agreeable in conversation. Those who saw him were suddenly filled
with reverence. Those who came near loved him; they who described him would
say, 'I have never seen his like either before or after'. He was of great
reservedness, but when he spoke, it was with emphasis and deliberation,
and no one could forget what he did".
Bonaparte, Emperor of France says: "Muhammad (peace be upon him) was
a prince; he rallied his compatriots around him. In a few years, the Muslims
conquered half of the world. They snatched away more souls from false gods,
pulled down more idols, demolished more pagan temples in fifteen years
than the followers of Moses and Jesus did in fifteen centuries.Muhammad
(peace be upon him) was a great man. He might have been, in fact, a god,
if the revolution which he was instrumental in bringing about had not been
prepared by circumstances. When he appeared, the Arabs had been, since
many years, afflictedwith civil
wars. All those nations that have achieved great things have done them
when they came out of such ordeals that renewed equally their souls and
their bodies. If the battles of Kadesia and (gap in the original MSS) which
enabled the intrepid Muslims to plant the standard of the Prophet on the
banks of the Oxus and on the frontiers of China; if those of Ajnadin and
Yarmuk, which caused Syria and Egypt to fall under their dominion, were
turned against them;if the Khalids,
the Zerars and the Amrs had been defeated and repelled to the vast deserts,
the Arabs would have gone back to their wandering life; they would have
lived like their forefathers, poor and miserable; the names of Muhammad,
Ali, and Omar would have remained unknown to the World".
Prophet of Islam (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) attained eminence
due to his excellence. He dispelled the darkness with his radiance. Very
splendid are his qualities and on him and his family. May Allah Ta'ala
shower His blessings in countless number. If we recite Durood in abundance,
we are sure to enter Paradise safe and sound.
us say Salawat in abundance and get the maximum benefit and blessings of
Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), his love, worldly success,
and in addition to all this, salvation of the next world.
