Golden Page of Human History (Prophet of Islam)

 

Prophet of Islam (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 Prophet of Islam (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.

 

History 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 of

life.

It 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 of Islam (sallal

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.

It 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.

Sayyiduna 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.

What 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.

Although 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?

History 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.
