May Allah bless each and every one of us, for this entry I would use full fledge English as I received messages and been adhere about Our prophet Muhammad s.a.w especially from the non-muslim who would like to know about him.
The similitude in comparison with our prophet Muhammad s.a.w from the other prophets before him is that of a man who has built a house completely and excellently except for a place of one brick. When people see the house, they admire its beauty and say: “how splendid the house will be if the missing brick is put in its place!”
So our prophet is the brick, and he is the last of the prophets.
Here I came with testimonials from famous world scholars regarding our Prophets:
“In Islamic thought, model leaders were simultaneously both exalted and humble, capable of vision and inspriration, yet at the same time dedicated to the service of their people. As you read these pages, you will I hope, be able to judge for yourself just how close Muhammad comes to this ideal.” – John Adair.
“Philosopher, orator, apostle, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of 20 terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire. That is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than him?” – Alphomse de Lamartine
“I wanted to know the best one who tolds today undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind. I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life.
I was rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of prophet Muhammad, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. When I closed the second volume (of the book about his life) I was sorry that there was not more for me to read about his great life” – Mahatma Gandhi
“His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement- all argue his fundamental integrity. None of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the west as Muhammad” – William Montgomery Watt
“His name meaning, “Highly praised” lent itself well to certain biblical passages as predicting his advent. Muhammad was never known to write anything himself; he used an amanuensis (someone who writes what is dictated to him). His apparent illiteracy did not prevent him from composing (i.e. conveying the holy Qur’an which was revealed to him and regarded as) the most famous and eloquent book in the Arabic tongue, and from acquiring such understanding of the management of men as seldom comes to highly educated persons” –William Durant
“How one man single-handedly, could weld warring tribes and wandering Bedouins into a most powerful and civilized nation in less than two decades” – Thomas Carlyle
There are so many other testimonials from great scholars especially in westerns that praise Muhammad s.a.w as the most influential ever figures in the world. The life of our prophet is a great experience of success that all humanity can learn and benefit from, not only muslims. His social, political, religious and economical success was not because of extraordinary miracles that made his life east, however, he achieved a genuine success based on hard work, struggle, effort, commitment, competence, love, sincerity and faith.
