Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) Truly Is The Prophet Of Allah

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the Originator of the darkness and the light. I bear witness that nothing is worthy of worship but Allah, Who is Alone, with no partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad (sws, salla Allahu `alaihi wa sallam: may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) is His slave and prophet. Oh Allah, let your peace be upon Muhammad (sws), the final prophet and messenger, his family, his companions and all those who followed him and upheld his traditions until the Day of Judgment.

Allah, the Glorious and Exalted, defends his prophets and preserves their position amongst all creation, whether in the present life or after their death. Allah Almighty singled out His prophet, Muhammad (sws), with special protection, due to the severe oppression he suffered during his call to Islam and also due to the slander and accusations which continue to proceed from every misleading and misled group as it aims to defame Islam, the religion which Allah has elected to be the correct belief for the whole of mankind.

Allah honored His prophet, Muhammad (sws), and raised him above all mankind by distinguishing him with outstanding moral features which could not have been found in any other human being. This research has compiled evidence, proofs, verses, signs and miracles (including the miraculous nature of the Quran) which combine to prove the prophecy of Muhammad (sws). Many brilliant scholars have studied this evidence (some of which is scientific), and become convinced of the Message of Muhammad (sws) and the trustworthiness of the Quran and Hadith (the sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad, sws).

And the search is not over. With the progress of science, we may continue to discover more and more undeniable truths which have already been referenced in the Quran and Hadith. Yet, the fact that the Quran offered such detailed and accurate descriptions over 1400 years ago, when no one could possibly have had such precise knowledge, has made many knowledgeable people certain that the Quran is indeed a book from God (Allah), and that Muhammad (sws), who delivered these amazingly accurate statements, is a prophet sent by God (Allah).

This research presents testimony, in the form of statements, admissions and declarations, offered by prominent scholars and scientists, all of whom witnessed that Muhammad (sws) is the prophet of Allah. It also examines quotations from the previous Divine scriptures, the Torah and the Gospels, which prove the prophecy of Muhammad (sws).

This research provides a description of the morality of the Prophet Muhammad (sws): his character, behavior and way of thinking. This research has been composed and collected from many Islamic sources, and it ends with a brief exhortation. I ask Allah Almighty to accept this effort and all our good deeds. Allah says in the Quran:

بَلۡ نَقۡذِفُ بِٱلۡحَقِّ عَلَى ٱلۡبَـٰطِلِ فَيَدۡمَغُهُ ۥ فَإِذَا هُوَ زَاهِقٌ۬‌ۚ وَلَكُمُ ٱلۡوَيۡلُ مِمَّا تَصِفُونَ

This means, {Nay, we fling (send down) the truth (this Koran) against falsehood (disbelief), so it destroys it, and then falsehood is vanquished.} [Al-Anbiya 21:18]

The Message of Muhammad (peace be upon him)

It has always been Allah’s Way to send His messengers when the world is in need of them, and when people have strayed from the correct path that will connect them to Allah. Allah sends messengers when people have become corrupt, when they differ in opinion and quarrel, and when they are in need of a law to reform their beliefs and connect people with one another in harmonic and intimate unity. Only at that point would people be properly able to thank their God for the blessings He granted them, for sending them a prophet with pure beliefs, noble morals and a straight-forward system of legislation, based on truth, virtue and justice. Allah says:

يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلنَّبِىُّ إِنَّآ أَرۡسَلۡنَـٰكَ شَـٰهِدً۬ا وَمُبَشِّرً۬ا وَنَذِيرً۬ا – وَدَاعِيًا إِلَى ٱللَّهِ بِإِذۡنِهِۦ وَسِرَاجً۬ا مُّنِيرً۬ا

It means, {O Prophet! Lo! We have sent thee as a witness and a bringer of good tidings and a Warner, and as one who invites to Allah (grace) by His leave, and as a lamp spreading light.} [Al-Ahzab 33: 45-46]

And He says:

يَأۡمُرُهُم بِٱلۡمَعۡرُوفِ وَيَنۡہَٮٰهُمۡ عَنِ ٱلۡمُنڪَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ ٱلطَّيِّبَـٰتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيۡهِمُ ٱلۡخَبَـٰٓٮِٕثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنۡهُمۡ إِصۡرَهُمۡ وَٱلۡأَغۡلَـٰلَ ٱلَّتِى كَانَتۡ عَلَيۡهِمۡ‌ۚ

It means, {He will enjoin on them that which is right and forbid them that which is wrong. He will make lawful for them all good things and prohibit for them only the foul; and he will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear.} [Al-A`raf 7: 157] And He also says:

كَمَآ أَرۡسَلۡنَا فِيڪُمۡ رَسُولاً۬ مِّنڪُمۡ يَتۡلُواْ عَلَيۡكُمۡ ءَايَـٰتِنَا وَيُزَكِّيڪُمۡ وَيُعَلِّمُڪُمُ ٱلۡكِتَـٰبَ وَٱلۡحِڪۡمَةَ وَيُعَلِّمُكُم مَّا لَمۡ تَكُونُواْ تَعۡلَمُونَ

It means, {Even as We have sent unto you a messenger from among you, who recites unto you Our revelations and causes you to grow, and teaches you the Scripture and wisdom, and teaches you that which ye knew not.} [Al-Baqarah 2: 151] Continue reading

The Civilized Principles In The Prophet’s Biography

Thanks are due to Allah, the One, and peace and blessings be upon his final Prophet (PBUH ), his family and his Companions.

Allah the Almighty created both humans and the jinn for a great objective, that is, the realization of voluntary worship and servitude to Him alone. Allah says in the Noble Qur’an what can be translated as «And in no way did I create the jinn and humankind except to worship Me.» ( 51:56) As human minds are short of knowing the attributes of the Creator, their duties towards Him, His rewards for the obedient, and His punishments to the disobedient, He chose the perfect persons, both physically and morally, to deliver His Message and guide the people to His right Way. Allah says in the Noble Qur’an what can be translated as «Allah knows best where He makes His Message.» (6:124)

Allah has not sent an angel who always worships or another creature that is always playful and self-indulgent. The reason is that the objectives of the divine Message are the rehabilitation of man to be able to carry out his task as a successor on Earth, that is, to worship Allah and cultivate the Earth according to the divine method.

Therefore, Allah’s Messengers and Prophets (PBUH) were humans who eat food and walk in the markets, who marry and have children, who are perfect but human. Prophet Muhammad ( PBUH ) was in no way an innovation among the Messengers and was no exception. Allah says in the Noble Qur’an what can be translated as «Say, ‘ Surely I am only a mortal the like of you: it is revealed to me that surely your God is only one God « (18:110) Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was endowed with unique attributes so that he taught humanity how to worship Allah, guided them to abide by the best of morals, and showed them, through his good policy and justice, how to navigate their worldly interests.

However, media may mislead some people who believe in the veracity of everything written or broadcast while it is devoid of any fairness or objectivity. These misleading media may cause people to believe what is being said about the so-called demerits of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). It is the duty of every person not to take this misleading information for granted and to ask the true scholars and refer to the historical facts that prove the true image of the Prophet (PBUH).

The reason for writing this research is the phenomenon of insulting Islam and Muslims and debasing their sacred symbols, rituals, and legislations. This comes in the form of systemized fierce campaigns led by politicians and religious scholars and supported by media. The cause of these campaigns was the abusive caricatures published by the Danish newspaper Jyllads-posten . These caricatures depicted Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as a lascivious person or a bloody killer who is devoid of any of the values of humanity or civilization. The same caricatures were later published in French and Norwegian newspapers.

The reaction was an uncontrolled anger on the part of Muslims all over the world. Demonstrations were organized, speeches were delivered, conferences were convened, and flags were burnt. Despite our objection to any form of violence, all these activities lack the simplest criteria that the true support of the Prophet (PBUH) must have. Supporting him is not a matter of temporary anger and aimless demonstration; it is not cursing those who insulted him or those who did not support him. To really vindicate the Prophet (PBUH) we should follow a scientific methodology that addresses both the minds and the hearts.

This methodology should benefit from the effective ways that aim to maximize the interests and minimizes the negative points. It should not be an idealistic methodology in an ivory tower that does not abide by any shariah rule or a human interest and the result would be it fires against us before the enemy.

This vindication should be comprehensive to include every fair person from among Muslims and non-Muslims. Scholars, rulers, traders, etc shall each has his own rule. Vindicating the Prophet (PBUH ) is an obligation.

This vindication should continue during our life. First, we should support him within ourselves through following his instructions and sunnah and leave all bid ’ ahs in order to be gathered with him and his great Companions on the Day of Judgment, to have his intercession, and to drink from his hand for one time after which we shall never be thirsty again.

This scientific research regarding the doubts about his polygyny, jihad, and attributes is a humble contribution to the vindication of the Prophet (PBUH). I ask Allah, the Ever-Exalted and the Omnipotent, to accept this and make our scales weigh heavy on the Day of Judgment. Continue reading

Reflections On The Prophets

Bilal Assad

Allah the Most Exalted says in the Qur’an:

•”We are relating unto you the most beautiful of stories in that what We have revealed to you from the Qur’an, though before it you were from among those who were not aware of them.” (12:3)

•”We have indeed sent aforetime Messengers before you, of them there are some whose stories We have related to you, and whose stories We have not related to you…” (40:78)

•”We relate to you the important news of their story in truth…” (18:13)

•”And all that We relate to you of these stories of the Messengers, We strengthen with them your heart. Through them there come to you the truth as well as admonition and reminder to all those who believe.” (11:120)

•”There is, indeed, in their stories lessons for people endowed with understanding. It is not any invented tale, but a confirmation of what went before it, and a detailed exposition of all things, and a guide and a mercy to the people who believe.” (12:111)

•”…so relate the stories, perhaps they may reflect.” (7:176) Continue reading

Islam In Brief By Mahmoud Ridha Murad

This is a message for every free thinking and broadminded human being. It is for every seeker of the truth who might have, once wondered, what the religion of Islam is all about. Who Allah is, what is the ultimate goal of man’s existence, or what happens after death, for these questions and many others are prompted at certain occasions, but brushed aside by various factors.

Islam is indeed a misunderstood and misrepresented religion in the West. <<This misconception is hardly surprising>>, remarks the French Dr. Maurice Bucaille, in his book, The Bible, The Qur’an and Science. <<When we consider the way so many generations are the West was instructed in the religious problems facing humanity and the ignorance in which they were kept about anything related to Islam>>. Hence Islamic ideals remain obscure from the vast majority of non-Muslims.

This booklet does not claim to answer all the questions you would like to be answered. However, this booklet will open before you a new dimension of thinking, and will enable you to realize the importance of your role as a human being in the universe, to help you understanding the relationship between you and your Creator.

God Almighty Allah. It presents Islam to you in a nutshell, and provides straightforward answers to many questions about Islam and credibility.

In this booklet, you will also be able to know Allah, the last of His Scriptures, the last of His Prophets and Messengers, what Islam is the role of man in this life and other related issues.

Lest one may think that there is an English version of the Qur’an, I would like to draw the reader’s attention to the fact that Arabic is the only language of the Qur’an. Although the Qur’anic quotations and Prophetic traditions cited in this booklet are preceded with <<Allah says>>, only the meaning of such quotations are quoted. Continue reading

Kindness And Gentleness

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/kindness-and-gentleness.jpg

Dr. Fadl al Ilahi

Undoubtedly, the heart leans towards those who are kind and gentle. It was said a long time ago: “Make your face and your words gentle, and you will be more beloved to the people than those who give them a gift.

” Likewise, it is part of human nature to turn away from severity and harsh heartedness even if it were to come from (our Prophet who is) the best of Allah the Most High’s creatures. Allah the Most high says:

“…And had you been severe and harsh hearted, they would have broken away from you..” (Sura Aal-‘Imran:159)

The one calling to the religion of Islam and dealing with other people has the utmost nee to gather the people around him, and cause their hearts to lean towards him so that they will listen to him. Adorning himself with kindness and gentleness helps achieve that goal with the Grace of Allah.

Texts of the Noble Quran and the pure (authentic) Sunnah clearly explain how important it is for the calling to Islam to adorn himself with kindness. Likewise, (our Prophet who is) the leader of all callers to the religion of Islam and their role model is an example of how to use kindness when calling to the religion of Allah the Most High (Islam). Also, many of the scholars have emphasized how important it is for the one calling to Islam to adorn himself with kindness.

It is also of the utmost importance that a person has kindness and gentleness when he is dealing with people in his everyday life, kindness and gentleness towards his parents, his children, his brothers and sisters, his relatives and friends. It is because of this kindness and gentleness that the people will find pleasure in being around him. Continue reading
