The Life and Character of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
To be truly Islamic requires emulating Islam’s living example (Muhammad pbuh) and its revealed life manual (the Qur’an).
When Muslims want to describe prophet Muhammad (PBUH), we say he is a mercy to mankind.
Even before he received the first revelation of Quran he was known for his honesty and wisdom. After he received the revelation he has endured all the accusations and harassment from the people of Mecca exercising patience and compassion. He went to Madinah after Meccan leaders plotted to kill him.
In Madinah he established the Islamic state the way it should be done with protecting lives, property and religious freedom. He transformed a tribal society to a civil society governed by covenants covering all segments of the society. He was not just a spiritual leader, he was also a civic leader.
