Someone has set out an intellectual journey through the world to find and know the Creator of the universe. After traveling in the realms of kinds of creatures, he said to himself: �I am seeking the Creator and Owner of this universe amidst these creatures. I should therefore before all else visit Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, and seek from him the answer to my quest.� He enters by imagination the blessed age of the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, and sees that that era really was an era of happiness for mankind by virtue of that being, who, as confirmed even by his enemies, is the most blessed of the whole creation, the greatest and the most accomplished commander, and the most celebrated ruler among them, the most exalted in speech and the most brilliant in intellect, and who has enlightened fourteen centuries with his virtues and with his Qur�an.

Who is the Prophet Muhammad?
Muhammad was born in Makkah in the year 570. Since his father died before his birth and his mother died shortly thereafter, he was raised by his uncle who was from the respected tribe of Quraysh.

Legacy of a Prophet
Fourteen hundred years ago, a humble merchant who could not read or write changed the face of Arabia. Today, his influence has spread to every corner of the world including the United States. This is the story...

 Among the Most Influential Persons in History

by Michael H. Hart
My choice of Muhammad to lead the list of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels. Of humble origins, Muhammad founded and promulgated one of the world's great religions, and became

You must Know this Man
You may be an antheist or an agnostic; or you may belong to any of the religious denominations that exist in the world today. You may be a communist or a believer in democracy and freedom. No matter what you are, and no matter what your ideological and political beliefs, personal and social habits happen to be - you must still know this man.

Prophethood in Islam
Prophethood is not unknown to heavenly revealed religions, such as Judaism and Christianity. In Islam, however, it has a special status and significance.

A Guidance to Follow
Muhammad as a man had already died, but as a Prophet he left behind him a legacy in the form of the Qur�an and the Sunnah. He stressed the urgent need to hold firmly to these two sources during his Farewell speech in the valley of Arafat. If people hold fast to them, they will never go astray.

Allah's Messenger to the Whole Mankind
Prophet Muhammad (r) (Salallahu �alayhi wa salam, meaning: May the peace and blessings of Allah I be upon him) was All�h's great Prophet and Messenger like Jesus, the Son of Mary. The Prophet's mission, however, is universal. All�h (I) (Subhanahu wa ta�ala, meaning: the Exalted, Most Glorious) tells mankind that Prophet Muhammad (r) is no more than a Messenger

The Best of Creation
The life of the Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him) has been said by his wife, Aisha (May Allah (S) be pleased with her) to be like "a walking Qur`an", embodying the Laws of Almighty Allah (subhaana wa taalah).

The Coming of the Most Noble Messenger
With eyes as bright as the shining sun, a reality on the lips more brilliant than the light of the sun, a heart more fresh than the flowers of the gardens of Yathrib and Taif, habits and morals more decent than the moon- lit nights of the Hijaz

The True Religion
The first thing that one should know and clearly understand about Islam is what the word "Islam" itself means. The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of Christianity which was named after Jesus Christ, Buddhism after Gotama Buddha, Confucianism after Confucius, and Marxism after Karl Marx. Nor was it named after a tribe like Judaism

A-Z of Islam
Islam is the complete submission and obedience to Allah (God). The name Allah (God) in Islam never refers to Muhammad (pbuh), as many Christians may think; Allah is the personal name of God.What do Muslims believe about Allah?

There is no God but Allah � A way of Life for Muslims
"La llaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah" -"There is no god except Allah" - is the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, meaning that there is no one to be worshipped except God; "Muhammad Rasul Allah" - "Muhammad is the Messenger of God"- is the second part..

Message of Peace
A major part of the Prophet�s mission was to bring peace to the world. One of the ways in which he strove towards this end was to attempt to convince people that all men and women, albeit inhabiting very different regions of the world, and different from one another in color, culture and language, et cetera, were in fact blood brothers and sisters.

Instilling Brotherhood among Muslims
Sure, Islam isn�t racist; almost any Muslim will tell you that.But Islam�s very strong stance against racism and prejudice wasn�t just demonstrated in words and principles: [O Mankind, We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other.

Honesty in Financial Dealings
Islam has stressed and asserted the importance of honesty in monetary dealings and highlighted its vital role in social stability and peacefulness. The Holy Qur�an and Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) have made it clear to us that the true Muslim is he who is honest and upright in his business and monetary dealing with others, even if they weren�t Muslims.

Moral System of Islam
Islam has laid down universal fundamental rights for humanity as a whole, which are to be observed and respected under all circumstances. To achieve these rights Islam provides not only legal safeguards but also a very effective moral system. Thus whatever leads to the welfare of the individual or the society

Human Rights through the Lens of Islam
Contrary to popular belief, the struggle for universal human rights is not a modern one. Although some claim that human rights is a Western concept or ideology (1), Islam was among the first institutions to advocate and implement such human rights as universal equality and women's rights.

Sword of islam
The first few who embraced the "new" religion in Makkah in the Arabian Peninsula at the hands of the Prophet were his wife Khadijah, his servant Zaid, and his eleven year old cousin Ali. Among the ones who later joined this faith were the honest merchant, Abu Bakr; the iron man of Arabia, Umar the Great; the shy businessman, Uthman; the Prophet's brave uncle, Hamza: and the slave of a pagan, Bilal. They simply couldn't resist the �MAGIC SWORD� of a humble and lonely Prophet!

What does Islam say about Terrorism?!
Islam, a religion of mercy, does not permit terrorism. In the Koran, God has said:
"God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes. God loves just dealers" [Koran 60:8]

Prophet Muhammad's Manners of Performing Prayer
The objective of this concise pamphlet is to explain how prophet Mohammed (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to perform his prayers. I would like to present this explanation to every male and female Muslim so that they may strive to take up the Prophet's manner in performing their prayers as a model for them.

THE MILDNESS AND FORBEARANCE OF GOD�S MESSENGER
Mildness is another dimension of the character of God�s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings. He was a bright mirror in which God reflected His Mercy

THE GENEROSITY OF GOD�S MESSENGER
God�s Messenger is, in the whole of creation, the most polished mirror, in which God Almighty�s Names and Attributes are reflected to the highest degree. Being a perfect manifestation of God�s Names and Attributes and an embodiment of the Qur�an and Islam, he is the greatest and most decisive and comprehensive proof of God�s Existence and Unity and the truth of Islam and the Qur�an. One who saw him remembered God automatically. Each virtue he

THE MODESTY OF GOD�S MESSENGER
In social life each man has a window called status through which he looks out to see others and be seen. If the window is built higher than his real stature, he tries, through vanity and giving himself airs, to stretch himself up to be seen taller than he really is. If the window is set lower than his real stature, he must bow in humility in order to look out, to see and be seen.

MUHAMMAD�S CHARACTER AND HIGH MORALITY PROVE HIS PROPHETHOOD
Muhammad was the humblest at the zenith of his achievements
If a man�s world-admired accomplishments or the wealth and fame he has gained do not change him, if he can remain as humble as he was at the beginning of his career, this shows that person�s strength of character, morality and virtue. Despite his unparalleled achievements, which force even his enemies to place him at the top of the greatest men of human history, the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, was poorer and more humble when he entered Makka victoriously than he was at the beginning of his mission.

 

THE PROPHET AND HIS WIVES
The Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace, is the most excellent example as father and husband. He was very kind and tolerant towards his wives. They could not live, they could not envisage life, without him..

GOD�S MESSENGER AND CHILDREN
He treated his children and grandchildren with extraordinary compassion and never neglected to direct their faces to the Hereafter and towards good deeds. He smiled at them, caressed and loved them, but he did not allow them to neglect the matters related to their afterlife. In worldly matters, he was extremely open

THE EDUCATIONAL ATMOSPHERE IN THE TIME OF HAPPINESS
In the house of the Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, there was a permanent awe. Every action was awesome. It was possible for those who caught a glance of him to feel the allure-

THE REASONS BEHIND THE SEVERAL MARRIAGES OF THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD
Some critics of Islam, either because they are not aware of the facts about the marriages of the Prophet Muham�mad, upon him be peace, or because they are not honest and objective about those facts, have reviled the Prophet as a self-indulgent libertine. They have accused him of charac�ter failings which are hardly compatible with being of aver�age virtue, let alone with being a Prophet and God�s last Messenger and the best model for all mankind to follow. However

A Little about his wife Aisha
The life of Aishah is proof that a woman can be far more learned than men and that she can be the teacher of scholars and experts. Her life is also proof that a woman can exert influence over men and women and provide them with inspiration and leadership . Her life is also proof that the same woman can be totally feminine and be a source of pleasure, joy and comfort to her husband.

Why did Prophet Muhammad peace be upon marry young Aisha?
Through the centuries, orientalists have advance numerous accusations and far-fetched theories to discredit Islam and its last Prophet, Muhammad (peace be upon him). Praise be to Allah alone, all such accusations have been successfully refuted by the Muslims Ummah. Currently, one of the �reinvented� accusations against the noble character of the Prophet is about his marriage to young Aisha Siddiqa

THE BLESSED COMPANIONS OF THE PROPHET

Muhammad is the Messenger of God, and those who are with Him are hard against the unbelievers and merciful among themselves. You see them bowing and falling prostrate (in worship), seeking grace from God and (His) good pleasure. The mark of them is on their foreheads from the traces of prostration. Such is their likeness in the Torah and their likeness in the Gospel--like as sown grain that sends forth its shoots and strengthens it and rises firm upon its stalk, delighting the sowers with amazement -that He may enrage the unbelievers with (the sight of) them. God has promised unto such of them as believe and do good works, forgiveness and immense reward. (Al-Fath, 48.29)

WHY CAN NO ONE ELSE BE ON PAR WITH THE COMPANIONS?

THE COMPANIONS IN THE QUR�AN

THE COMPANIONS IN THE HADITH

List of the Companions Stories

THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD�S LIFE PRIOR TO HIS MESSENGERSHIP PROMISED HIS PROPHETHOOD
The extraordinary events took place on the night of his birth. For example, most of the idols at the Ka�ba toppled over; the palace of the Sassanid Emperor shook and cracked, and its fourteen pinnacles collapsed; the small lake of Sawa in Persia sank into the earth, and the fire which was worshipped by the Magians at Istakhrabad and had been lit continually for a thousand years was extinguished. Together with these events, the different character he displayed even in his childhood and the meaningful signs men of insight observed on him meant that he would undertake a great mission in future.

THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD�S LIFE FOLLOWING HIS PROPHETHOOD
If the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, had cherished selfish aims and intentions, and if he had not been a Prophet chosen by God to guide people into truth, he would not have had to wait until he was forty to emerge with the claim of Prophethood.

MUHAMMAD�S CHARACTER AND HIGH MORALITY PROVE HIS PROPHETHOOD
Muhammad was the humblest at the zenith of his achievements
If a man�s world-admired accomplishments or the wealth and fame he has gained do not change him, if he can remain as humble as he was at the beginning of his career, this shows that person�s strength of character, morality and virtue. Despite his unparalleled achievements, which force even his enemies to place him at the top of the greatest men of human history, the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, was poorer and more humble when he entered Makka victoriously than he was at the beginning of his mission.

HIS ACHIEVEMENTS PROVE MUHAMMAD�S PROPHETHOOD
Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, was peerless in educating people
A man, whoever he is and whatever he does, may regard his own occupation as more important, more necessary, more beneficial to social life and more difficult than others. However, although every occupation has some difficulty of its own and is of some degree of use for social life, educating people must be much more difficult than others and more necessary for a healthy social life.

PREDICTIONS OF GOD�S MESSENGER CONCERNING HIS OWN TIME

PREDICTIONS OF GOD�S MESSENGER RELATED TO EVENTS THAT WOULD FOLLOW HIS DEPARTURE FROM THE WORLD

PREDICTIONS RELATED TO THE DISTANT FUTURE

THE PROPHETS MADE A COMPREHENSIVE INVITATION TO GOD
There was no fragmentation or compartmentalization in the way of the Prophets. They dealt with people and life in a holistic manner and never ignored or neglected any of man�s faculties. They appealed to man�s intellect, reason, spirit and all his outer and inner senses and feelings.

THE METHOD OF CONVEYING THE MESSAGE
Constant, continual striving is not only an essential feature of the delivering of the Message but it is actually an important element of the Prophetic method.

THE CONSISTENT EFFORT OF GOD�S MESSENGER IN CONVEYING THE MESSAGE
The communication of the Divine Message was the most essential characteristic of God�s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings. We are troubled whenever we are hungry or thirsty, or when we have difficulty in breathing; but he was troubled if a day passed when he could not find someone to whom he could convey the Divine Message. He was so concerned about the guidance of people, and so physically pained by unbelief, that God advised him to be careful of his health, saying:

FURTHER REMARKS ON CONVEYING THE MESSAGE
An important point to take note of, regarding communication of the Message by the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, is that he set an excellent example of ardour in the duty of guiding people. Like him, also his Companions, following his way, tried their hardest to convey the Message. For example,

THE PROPHETS PRACTICED WHAT THEY PREACHED
If a preacher desires his preaching to be effective on people, he should practice what he preaches. One who says what he does not do can hardly expect to succeed in his mission. Actions speak louder than words. The Qur�an is very explicit in this matter:
