Khuluqin ‘AtheemPosted: April 25, 2012
(indeed, you are of a great moral character) [68:4]
This is how Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala, described the Prophet, salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam.
Allah, All Mighty, Himself chose him to be the final Messenger to all mankind until the day of Judgement. Contemplating what kind of a man he was, his behavoir, his feature, his characteristics, is too difficult. This perfect human who Allah loves more than anyone else. His pain, his suffering, and all he had to bear for the sake of Allah and our religion. Only if we were to get a glimpse of what he looks like..
His manners is superior to all else, the most modest, shy, kind, forgiving man to ever tread this earth. In Bukhari, Abu Huraira narrated:
We were once seated with the Prophet (salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam) and he said:
‘As I was asleep, I saw myself in Jannah, and I saw a woman performing ablution beside a palace, and they told me this was for ‘Umar bin Khattab. I remembered his jelousy, so I turned away.‘ Upon hearing this ‘Umar began to cry and said, ‘My father and Mother be sacrificed for you, how can I be jelous of you, O Prophet of Allah.’
He applies his manners even in his dream, salah allahu ‘alayhi wa salam.
