All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds, and may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon Muhammad ibn ‘Abdillaah, the seal of the prophets, the finest of the former and latter generations, our master and ideal example.

He is the possessor of the Hawdh (Basin) from which the believers will drink on the day of Judgment; the Banner under which the believers will gather; the Station of Praise and Glory; and the Bright Marks on his face, hands and feet (from the remnants of his ablution). He is the one who was mentioned in the Tawraah (Torah) and Injeel (Gospel), and supported by the Angel Jibreel (Gabriel), may Allaah exalt his mention.

His Lord distinguished him with the Israa’ and Mi‘raaj (Night Journey to Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa and Ascent to Heaven) and He split the moon for him, and made a cure and blessing in his saliva and sweat. With his invocations the rain was sent down. To him the trees submitted. Upon him, camels and stones sent their salutations. He was made victorious by awe, for Allaah terrified his enemies at a distance of a month’s journey.

He is the master of the sons of Aadam (Adam), and this is no boast. The evidences of his prophethood are numerous and his noble manners and attributes are countless.

The best of creation in his childhood, the most purified in his youth, the superior in his maturity, the most righteous throughout his lifetime, the most just of judges, and the bravest on the battlefield. Allaah The Almighty endowed him with every sublime moral and refined manner, purified him from every impurity, guarded him against every slip, taught him good manners, educated him well and endowed him with every noble trait. Thus, no one could be like him in his perfection, nobility, truthfulness, honesty, asceticism, bashfulness and chastity.

Such is the Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. All those who knew him well acknowledged his nobility, excellent nature, kind-heartedness, gentleness, wisdom, intelligence, firm determination and compassion.

No one can read about the magnanimous manners and the noble character of the Messenger, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, without expressing admiration of his character and bedazzlement by it. Thus, it is no wonder that we see such fragrant praise and objective testimonies from many of those who have not even embraced Islam. History has recorded their quotations, writings and heritage in this regard and this provides firm evidence and decisive proof of his sublime morals and characteristics, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.

Nobody ever experienced the amount of hardship, trials, difficulties and crises that the Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, experienced throughout his mission. However, he confronted all such strains with the ultimate perseverance and steadfastness.

He was patient when he was an orphan, when he was poor, hungry and needy. He was described as a liar, a poet, a soothsayer, a sorcerer, and insane, yet he was patient. He was harmed, wronged, cursed and insulted, yet he was patient.

His uncle Abu Taalib died, and he remained patient. His wife died, and he remained patient. People drove him out and fought him, and he remained patient. His uncle Hamzah was killed, and he remained patient. His son died, and he remained patient. False accusations were made against his chaste noble wife, yet he was patient and forbearing.

His relatives were killed, his companions were murdered, his followers were driven out of their homes, his enemies gathered against him to fight him, yet he was patient and forbearing.

He had a great deal of patience with those who attacked and insulted him, with those who gathered together to fight him, with the aggression of those who denied the truth and the power of falsehood.

He had a great deal of patience in the face of the adornments and beautifications of the worldly life, and was attached to none of it.

The Prophet, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was the ideal example of ultimate perseverance and steadfastness in all his life affairs. In fact, patience was his armour, shield, friend and ally.

Whenever he was disturbed by the malicious words of his enemies, he would remember the verse in which Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {So be patient over what they say.} [Quran 20:130]

Whenever he feared the power of his enemies or when the disbelievers harmed him, he would remember the verse in which Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {So be patient, [O Muhammad], as were those of determination among the messengers and do not be impatient for them.} [Quran 46:35]
