(12 Rabiulawal)

The behavior and personality of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) are the best examples to follow in Life. A companion of his, who spent full ten years with him, has said:

"Throughout my stay with him I never heard an indecent word from his lips and never found him rude to anyone. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) spoke very politely. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was kind to everyone."

Although Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was the Prophet of Allah and had been appointed by Allah to guide the people, yet he was not ashamed of doing his work with his own hands. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) assisted the members of his family in household work and performed the jobs of other persons with great pleasure. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mended his clothes and shoes. He also took part in the construction of Masjid al-Nabi in Medina along with his companions.

His dress was always clean, though simple. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was very mindful of cleanliness. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) washed his hands and mouth before and after taking his meals.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was so kind and generous that he never refused a reasonable request of any person. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) often distributed edibles among others and went without meals himself. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) always helped the needy and the poor and went to the houses of the sick to enquire after their health.

Whenever he met anyone he said, 'Salamun Alaikum'. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) always spoke with a smiling face.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a model of all the virtues and qualities of a believer described in the Noble Qur'an. None can describe him better than Allah who has said he possessed the noblest character.

"Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much." Noble Qur'an (33:21)

"And thou (Muhammad) (standest) on an exalted standard of character." Noble Qur'an (68:4)

"And We have not sent you but as a mercy to the worlds." Noble Qur'an (21:107)

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "I have been sent only for the purpose of perfecting good morals".

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "The best of you are those who have the best morals".

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "You cannot treat people by means of your wealth; hence, you should treat them by means of your moral conduct".

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has said, "The most (important) things that cause people to reach Heaven are divine piety and a good temper".
