The Prophet’s Mohammad Wisdom in Leading His Companions

Mohsen Haredy


Human resources experts say that successfully leading a small group of people is not an easy task.

Imagine for a moment the challenge Prophet Muhammad  faced when he established the foundations of the first Muslim community first in Makkah, then in Madinah.


When Islam started to gain publicity, the few people who had embraced it in Makkah formed the nucleus of the first Muslim community. This small community was put to persecution at the hands of the people of Quraysh.

The Prophet  had to do something about this challenging situation. When the persecution intensified, he asked some of them to leave Makkah and migrate to Abyssinia where its king, Negus, gave them protection and welcomed them in his country. As a responsible leader, the Prophet  had a serious concern for his followers’ safety and he took wise measures to ensure that at least some of them were safe, far away from danger.

After the death of the Prophet’s wife, Khadijah, and his uncle, Abu Talib, the persecution of the Prophet  and his companions in Makkah increased, and his personal safety was at risk as the tribes joined hands to kill him. At that point, God commanded the Prophet  to leave Makkah and migrate to Madinah where he started a new phase in establishing the new Muslim state.

Description of the Prophet (pbuh)

In order to understand the message of Islam, it is first necessary to acquaint ourselves with the prophet of Islam. You cannot, as the popular saying goes, separate the message from the messenger. It is therefore only natural to wish to study the life of Muhammad (pbuh), his manners and his morals, and to see how Islam manifested itself in his person as a living example for all Muslims till the end of time.

Abu Hurairah described him as follows:

“He was of medium build, closer to being tall. His skin was extremely white, his beard was black, his mouth was pleasant, his eyebrows were long, and his shoulders were wide”

Ibne Malik said:

“I never touched silk or any soft fabric equal to the softness of his palm, and I never smelled a scent more pleasing than his.”

Last Sermon of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

This sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Islamic month of Dhul-Hijjah Year 632 A.C (10 A.H.) in the ‘Uranah valley of Mount Arafat’ in Mecca
After praising and thanking Allah the Prophet (saws) said:
“O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether after this year I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that he will indeed reckon your deeds. Allah has forbidden you to take usury (interest), therefore all interest obligations shall henceforth be waived. Your capital is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. Allah has judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to Abbas ibn ‘Abd’al Muttalib [the Prophet’s uncle] be waived.

Prophet Mohammd .. Quraysh In A Fix

Quraysh In A Fix

As the enmity of persecutors increased, so did the number of the Prophets followers (May Allah be pleased with them). The Quraysh were baffled at how to stop the people from taking the Prophet peace be upon him and his teachings seriously; at how to make them hold aloof to him and thus finally disregard him. Mecca was a commercial center frequented by tribes people from far and near and during the Hajj, or when it is about to draw near, a plethora of them were to come again. The people coming to Mecca had somehow to be kept at a distance from the Prophet peace be upon him, lest they should hear his sermons and digest his words, or that they may contemplate or reflect and meditate upon them. They went to Walid Ibn Al-Mughira, who was old and a man of standing, to seek his advice. He said, O people of Quraysh, the time of Hajj has come around when delegations of the Arabs will come here. They have all heard about this man (the Prophet ), so agree upon a common ground hence you do not contradict one another and each one of you says the same thing. Different suggestions were put forward but Walid was not satisfied. At last, he was asked to suggest some way out. Thereupon he said, The most convincing thing in my opinion would be that all of you present him as a sorcerer. You should say that he has brought a message through which he creates a rift between fathers and sons, or where brothers fall out from brothers, as well as husbands part ways with their wives and that families break up under his influence.

Safiyya Bint Hayayy

Written by Administrator

Safiyya bint Huyayy, (may Allah be pleased with her) married the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in 7 AH, when the Prophet was sixty years old and she was seventeen years old. As in the case of juwayriyya bint Harith, this marriage occurred after one of the Muslims’ decisive battles, in this case, the battle of Khaybar. After the battle of Khaybar in which the Muslims defeated the Jews, two women were brought before the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) by Bilal, the black mu’adhdhin of Medina whose beautifully piercing voice constantly called the Muslims to prayer right up until the Prophet’s death- after which he could not bring himself to call the adhan anymore, until he was present at the surrender of Jerusalem to the khalif Umar in 17 AH. They had passed by those who had been killed in the fighting. One of the two women was shrieking and screaming, and rubbing dust in her hair, while the other was mute with shock.

The Jews’ attempts to kill the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him

Q: I have heard the following: that the Jews tried to kill the Messenger 3 times. And the last time was 6 years before the prophet (peace and blessings of allaah be upon him) died, with poisoned mutton, of which the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) ate two mouthfuls, then Allaah caused the sheep to speak and tell the Messenger that it was poisoned. When the Messenger died, he said that it was as if he could taste that mutton. Is this true? If it is true, then it means that we have a great score to settle with them.

A: Praise be to Allaah.

The Jews wanted to kill the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) on several occasions, including the following:

Morals in the Life and Da‘wah of the Prophets

The Prophet,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), was commanded to maintain the same methodology that had been adopted by all the previous prophets and messengers, may Allaah exalt their mention, as Allaah The Almighty Says (what means): {Those are the ones whom Allaah has guided, so from their guidance take an example.} [Quran 6:90] Allaah the Almighty granted the prophets perfection of morals and character so that people would not turn away from them with the excuse that they were repulsive or ill-natured. All prophets, may Allaah exalt their mention, only spoke what was revealed to them by Allaah the Almighty. Their message was not something that they fabricated or that was due to the surrounding social conditions of their age. Their message was a revelation from Allaah the Almighty, as each and every prophet testified: {I only follow what is revealed to me.}[Quran 6:50] The prophets, may Allaah exalt their mention, did not have the right to change, replace, add, or cancel anything that had been revealed to them. Concerning Prophet Muhammad,  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ), Allaah the Almighty Says (what means):

·        {Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed.} [Quran 53:3,4]

·        {Say, [O Muhammad]: “It is not for me to change it on my own accord. I only follow what is revealed to me. Indeed, I fear, if I should disobey my Lord, the punishment of a tremendous Day.”} [Quran 10:15]
