A Look back at the amazing features. Appearance, characteristics, habits, and personality of our most amazing nabi ﷺ, to help us understand how special he was.
Jibreel Alayhis Salam has said:
قَلَّبْتُ مَشَارِقَ الْأَرْضِ ، وَمَغَارِبَهَا فَلَمْ أَرَ رَجُلًا أَفْضَلَ مِنْ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
“I searched the east and the west, I left no stone unturned, but I did not find anyone like our beloved Rasul ﷺ.” (Mujamul Awsat-Tabraani)
His courage and strength ﷺ
Listen to “His courage and strength ﷺ “ by Mawlana Junayd Makda Sahib
His courage ﷺ
Sayyiduna Abdullah Ibn Umar رضي الله عنهما narrates that Rasulullah ﷺ was the most courageous and brave person. (Sirat)
The bravery of our beloved Nabi ﷺ is very apparent especially during battles and during times of fear. During the battle of Badr, when the Muslims were weak and very few in number (only 313) and the enemy were a thousand strong, Ali رضي الله عنه says that Rasulullah ﷺ on this day, was the nearest to the enemy. (Majma’/Ithaf)
Note: The chances of getting injured are a lot more when one is near the enemy!
Another such battle was the battle of Hunain in which the Muslims were severely shaken by a sudden attack. Our beloved Nabi ﷺ remained steadfast even in this sudden attack and faced up to the enemy. (Tirmidhi)
Anas رضي الله عنه narrates that there was once a sudden alarm and panic in Madeenah which was caused by a loud sound. Our beloved Nabi ﷺ took Abu Talha’s horse and set out all alone in the direction of the sound. By the time the Sahabah had got up and prepared themselves, our beloved Nabi ﷺ was seen returning from a distance and told them that there is nothing to fear.
No matter how difficult the time was, our amazing Nabi ﷺ always stood firm. (Tirmidhi)
His strength ﷺ
A renowned Arabian wrestler named Ruqana once challenged our beloved Nabi ﷺ to a wrestling bout. Rasulullah ﷺ accepted the offer and defeated him repeatedly! (Abu Dawud)
On another occasion, while preparations were underway for the battle of trenches, the Sahabah came across a huge boulder (huge rock). Many companions made an effort to break it but none of them succeeded. Finally, they came to our beloved Nabi ﷺ, Our beloved Nabi ﷺ struck it and after only 3 strikes, He broke the rock!
This was just a glimpse into the bravery and courage of our most beloved Nabi ﷺ who was indeed most perfect, most special and who is the one we should all make our role model.
يَارَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِماً اَبَداً عَلٰى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ
Look at how amazing our beloved Nabi ﷺ was!!
Pebbles make tasbeeh
Once in the presence of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr, Umar and Uthman رضي الله عنهم, our beloved Nabi ﷺ picked up seven or nine pebbles and placed them in his palm. Thereafter the pebbles made tasbeeh to Allah Ta’ala
