MORALS DRAWN FROM THE LIFE OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (Peace be upon him)
Birth of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) to Mt. Safa
Simplicity, Courage & Forgiveness
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was simple, courageous and firm in his mission throughout his life. The Prophet's (Peace be upon him) boyhood was a simple and hard one. He spent his time mostly in the countryside tending to sheep, and seeking the truth. During his adulthood he chose a simple, yet busy career, that of trading. He was prosperous in his travels, and had a firm belief in the truth even when he received his revelation.
He (Peace be upon him) was aware of the hardships that awaited him in the future during his mission to spread Islam. Although he (Peace be upon him) was going to be a leader of a new nation, he was not proud and lived a simple life. He (Peace be upon him) did not consider himself to be higher than the other Muslims but worked alongside, rather than apart and above them.
His (Peace be upon him) strong courage and firmness came from his faith and belief in Allah (swt). He did not fall trap to the bribes from the people who wished for him to stop his mission. He (Peace be upon him) knew that nothing any human offered to him could ever be better than what the Almighty had given him.
So he firmly and courageously refused lavish gifts and wealth without the slightest doubt in his (Peace be upon him) heart.
