Performing as Judge, Listening to the Parties and Passing Judgement on Disputes
Quran was being Revealed and Completion of Shariah Law was Heading Towards Completion. Countless controversies were rising. Companions would flock to seek answers to the Questions.
3. QURANIC EDUCATION
Preserving Quranic Revelation by Letting it to be Written. Orally conveying Quranic Message to Companions.
Nonbelievers were always out for exterminating Islam. Muslims were always entangled in a Net of wars. Mostly Prophet himself led the Muslim Army.
Sometimes the Prophet debuted somebody else to lead the army. In this case he arranged the army, advised them and bade farewell.
6. HEADING INTELLIGENCE DEPARTMENT
Keeping himself aware of the intentions, plans and activities of enemy he arranged his own intelligence because there were not any intelligence departments then.
There was no Police Department then. The society was of heterogeneous composition. There were hypocrites, nonbelievers and all kinds of enemies. Prophet took care administrative matters then. (Pages:13-21 of the Book Shown in the Bottom)
Mohammad was a posthumous child. His mother died when he was only 6. He came under the patronage of his grandfather. Who died when he was 12. The his uncle Abu Talib became his caretaker. When in the house of his Uncle, he never demanded any thing from his auntie as his cousins would do. He stood aside maintaining his dignity. Even the insistence of his auntie could not persuade him to demand any thing. This habit of contentment in him remained with him throughout his life. Contentment was his pride.
(Pages:100-106 of the Book Shown at the Bottom)
Before the Advent of Islam, Arab was a famous market of Slaves. Mecca was the worst place for mistreatment of Slaves.From the very childhood, the Prophet saw the Meccan society steeped in Squalor.The Prophet would brood over the wretched condition of Slaves, Slave-girls,Widows, Orphans and other poor. This pain for wretched was escalating in his heart but no wayout was visible to him.
His first wife Khadija (Elder than the Prophet by 15 years) was seeing all this. She handed over all her riches to the Prophet. The prophet spent all this wealth in buying slaves and setting them free.He had already set Imme-Aiman free. Khadija had gifted a slave Zaid to her husband i.e. The Prophet.
(Pages:129-134 of the Book Shown Under Reference)
1. Training For War
Ali was deputed to train horses for war. There was a ground of 6 KM diameter. The method was to profusely feed the horses to develop them bulky. After this their food was gradually reduced to make them thin in some specific way. After 40 days horses were prepared for war purposes. Women were trained to dress the injuries of soldiers, provide them water for drinking and picking the arrows from the ground and handing them to fight soldiers.
2. Arranging War Expenses
Meccan period and first five years of Medina period finances were strained. Non-believers socially and economically boycotted Muslims to further put them on straits. War expenses were arranged through subscriptions from Muslims. No rate was fixed. Every companion gave what he deemed fit in the way of God. Afterwards, the expenses started to be met from Booty of War and from the homage paid by Subjugated people. Some Muslims got money on loan to subscribe to war. Never the arrangements for war were on sound foot and according to the Worldly Standards.
3. Intelligence Service
Some intelligence was sent by Abbas and Abu Al-jantry staying Mecca. Small groups of companions were sent around Mecca and Madina to gather essential information.
Before Badr war these groups brought some boys to the Prophet. They were asked what roughly is the number of Meccan Army. The boys did not know the counting. And they could not tell the number. Very judiciously the Prophet asked the boys how many camels are being slaughtered daily by the army. They replied positively because they had some knowledge of lower numbers. From this the prophet guessed the number of army.
4. Importance Of Secrecy
Sometimes facts were not known even to the key companions. War preparations were in full swing. But nobody knew where to proceed until the last moment. Even then the direction of the departure was known but not the Name of the Destination.
To conceal the destination, the Prophet commanded to proceed in the direction opposite to the actual direction. So that onlookers may receive wrong signals to convey to the enemy. On the way Prophet asked people about the places where he did not intend to go. Thus, feeding in their minds the wrong information to be conveyed to the enemy.
Once, a few days before the conquest of Mecca, Abu Sufiyan came to Madina and stayed there for three days.His purpose was to gather secret information. He met key personalities to smell something fishy. They asked him to see the Prophet. Who remained silent in response to his Questions. He was alive to the situation only when Muslims overtook Mecca a few days latter.
5. Formation of Columns Of Army
In Badr war three nonbelievers came forward to challenge Muslims. The Prophet ordered Hamza, Ali and Abu Abaida to step ahead to meet the Enemy. In Uhd war when Prophet examined the arena, he placed 50 archers at a pass. They were advised not to leave the place at all. Before the conquest of Mecca four commanders were deputed at the head of the army. They were advised to avoid bloodshed as far as possible.
6. Keeping Up Pacts of War
Before the signing of Hudabia Pact, Abu Jandal, newly converted to Islam, son of Sohail, the representative of Nonbelievers, chained, reached Hudaibia and requested for refuge. His father wanted his return. Companians of Prophet favored Abu Jandal saying that yet the pact is Not signed. But the Prophet said that the Pact had been signed and Abu Jandal must return to Mecca. And that God would create some way out.The way out was created soon.
Two Muslims were caught when on their way from Mecca to Madina. They were made by the nonbelievers to promise not take part in war on behalf of Muslims. They promised. But when they reached Madeina and met the Prophet and sought his advice. He advised to keep up their promise and don’t take part in Badr War.
There were two tribes, Khaza-aa and Banu Bkr, near Mecca. Khaza-aa was the ally of Muslims and Banu Bakr was the ally of nonbelievers.When the pact of Hudabia was signed.Banu Bakr thought it a time to wreak vengeance on Khaza-aa and they attacked them. In this attack, they were accompanied by the Non-believers. The head of Khaza-aa reached Madina with forty companions. Prophet obliged him and overtook Mecca with Ten thousands soldiers.
7. Observing Timing For Attacking
Before Islam Arab had no definite principles of war. Except some traditions were followed. But giving reign to brutal bloodshed was the first and foremost principle of War.They used to attack at midnight so as to cause maximum bloodshed. Islam introduced the principle of attacking in the morning to ensure that maximum number of people are awake so that they could defend themselves.In the like manner Muslim Army entered Mecca in the morning. Another principle of stopping war at noon and resuming it after a period of recess, was settled by Muslims.
8. Instructions for March of Army
At beginning of wars with the nonbelievers, Muslims were much disturbed at their unprincipled ways of war. They were habitual of brutality and ferocity. The more Islam expanded the more Muslims succeeded in the formulating the moderate principles of war. In this way Muslims tried to reduce the savagery of Arabs.
9. Distribution of Booty
Arab allowed every type loot after war. Islam Put this practice to an end. Instead it initiated the practice of booty of war. Ghanm means she-goat. She-goats were considered a symbol of wealth. The conquerors would drive home she-goats of the defeated party. Latter this name began to be used also for other types of Booty.
10.Policy For the Subjugated Nations
Muslims were commanded by the Prophet try to cause least bloodshed. Prophet took utmost care not cause any bloodshed in conquest Mecca. In the conquest of Khyber, the same pattern was followed. In some cases booty was also returned. Sometimes prisoners of war were set free without receiving any ransom. In some cases old officials were re-instated on their posts.This soft treatment encouraged the inmates of the locality to embrace Islam in large number. These were the conquests of Prophet Mohammad that included the conquests of Hearts in addition to the Conquests of localities.
11.Care-Taking of Widows and Orphans of Martyred Soldiers
Good treatment to orphans and widows is very emphatically advised by the Prophet. That is why Muslims gave live in the way of Allah because they were sure that after their death their children and wives will be well looked after. That is why orphans were brought up in Muslim families in a better way than their own children.
All the Muslims killed in defensive wars were called Martyr. In Holy Quran Muslims are forbidden to use the Word ‘Dead’ for a Martyr. Martyr are buried without a bath and a Coffin. So that his/her injuries may speak in favor of the Martyr.
13.Belief In the Help of God
Prayers of the Prophet were greatest weapon for Muslims for having victory in wars. Before Badr War, the prophet such a vigorous prayer the blanket at his shoulder would fall again and again. Abu Bkr (First Caliph and Aisha’s Father) was seeing this, said:O Prophet! God has promised victory for us. Why don’t you stop praying now.Ali told latter that whenever ferocity of battle was escalated, he would go to the Prophet ONLY to find that he was praying to God.
All the Heads of Army before proceeding on an expedition,following the Example of Prophet, prayed.In Hunain war, that was conducted after the conquest of Mecca. For the first time Muslim outnumber the enemy on account of injection of New Comers in Islam. When in the mid of mountains, volley of arrows came from the archers hidden in the hills all around. New Muslims could not withstand the onslaught and turned back. It was prophet who stood firmly and gathered his close companions and repulsed the attack successfully.
14.In Advance Preparations of War
Like very shrewd Commander Mohammad kept himself full aware of the moves of enemies. Whenever illwill of enemy was to materialize, the evil was nipped in the bud. Taking the enemy by storm was ensured to have Instant Grip
15.Counselling Regarding War Matters
Having counselling with the companions was a standard practice of Mohammad. Before Badr war following three questions were to be settled:
(i) Fighting the War Outside Madina City
(ii) Chasing of the Trade Caravan
(iii) Facing the Army of Non-believers
These questions were sorted out by the Prophet through counselling with companions.
It was counsel from his Companion Salman the Persian, the a ditch was dug around Madina as a defence against Oncoming Armies of Alliance of All Arab tribes.
When Hudabia Pact was signed companions of the Prophet were cut to the Quick because they were expecting a complete victory over the nonbelievers. They considered the Pact against the interests of Muslims. When prophet ordered to slaughter their sacrifices i.e. camels, nobody complied with the instruction of Prophet. Prophet momentarily felt frustrated. He consulted with his wife Imme Salma who replied that the companions loved him greatly but at present they crestfallen. She advised him first to slaughter a camel himself, the others will follow suit. The Prophet acted upon the advice that ensured expected results.
On the siege of Taaif 20 days had passed and there was no positive result.The prophet consulted with Nofil-bin-Muaavia who replied:
Fox has hidden in her hole. Continue the Siege, she will be caught. Even if you discontinue it, there will be no harm.
16.Miracle for Moving War Towards Victory
In Badr War, the Prophet threw a fistful of pebbles towards enemy. This turned into a gale accompanied by rain.Nonbelievers were made to see Muslims three times more than themselves.Army of nonbelievers was belittled in the eyes of Believers as if their number is less than themselves.
Sometimes during wars when the food was very little, it was made to suffice hundreds of people,keeping it under cover after prophet put his hand in it. During ditch war when, out of extreme hunger, many companions and Prophet himself had fastened stones on their stomach, a companion invited the prophet to his house for eating. The Prophet took hundreds of companions with him. Now the host was fearful. Because the food scanty and was just sufficient for only a few persons. Judging his anxiety, the prophet went to the kitchen and put his hand in kettle of curry then he put his hand in the tray of kneaded flour. He advised the host to keep both the kettle of curry and tray of kneaded floor cover with a cloth.Thus a very small amount of food was sufficient for hundreds of people.
In spite of many attempts, success was still a far cry in the Khyber War because the preparations of war on the part of Jews were par excellence. One day the Prophet told the companians that he would give the flag to a person who will be the victor of this battle. Next day he gave the flag to Ali for leading the Army. But Ali replied that he had sore eyes and therefore is unfit for leading the Army. The Prophet dip his finger in his mouth and touched the eyes of Ali for stacking his saliva there. Instantly, Ali was up doing. Next day he led the army and was victorious.
17.Policy Regarding the Captives of War
In Badr War 70 warriors were made captive. The Prophet consulted companians on how to treat them. All categories of counsels, from softest to hardest, were received them. Consequent upon this joint session of decision-making, different actions on the following lines:
(i) Four Dirham were fixed as Atonement or Fine on the average.
(ii) Literate Captives were asked to educate 10 Muslim children
(iii) Poor captives were set free.
(iv) The Rich Captives were Charged Higher Fine e.g.Abbas, Uncle of the Prophet.
(v) General Instruction of the Prophet was for taking care of their comfort.
(vi) Captives having Mutual blood relations were directed by the Prophet to be kept together.
(vii) One of the Captives fastened with strings was groaning. He was Abbas, Uncle of the Prophet. Prophet was
feeling restlessness and could not sleep. Soon the groans stopped. The Prophet asked how the groans have
stopped? He was told that Abbas is untied. He ordered to untie all the captives.
18.Policy Regarding Companions Lagging Behind
In Islam Jehad is compulsory for every adult and healthy Muslims. Hypocrites made pretexts to seek exemptions. But sometimes a few loyal faithfuls could not participate in Jehad out of mere laziness and not any dishonesty. Once three companions missed the Tabuk War and lagged behind. They were socially boycotted as punishment. Life turned worse than death. They sought forgiveness of God. Ultimately God forgave them. Its mention is made in Holy Quran(xx/118)
19.Bravery of Prophet
The Prophet was bravest of all.The companions closely following the prophet in the war, were considered most brave because greatest thrust of enemy was targeting the Prophet. In Uhd War Abbi Bin Khalf who was deadly enemy of Prophet rushed to him to attack him. Companions tried to obstruct his way. The Prophet forbade them and took a spear from them and pierce neck of the enemy. Crying, he fled away.
Once there was a great noise at midnight at madina. People were frightened and gathered together and proceeded to the spot outside the city.They saw the Prophet coming from outside of the city. He told the crowd that some small army had returned after victory.
Once when returning from a War prophet was resting under a shady tree. Asoor, an enmy who had penetrated the caravan. A sword was hanging with the tree. Asoor took the sword and awoke the prophet and asked him.
Who can save you from me now. The Prophet calmly replied Allah.The enemy stunned at the unexpected answer let the sword dropped down from his hand. The Prophet caught the sword and asked Asoor who will now save you from me. He began to tremble with fear and supplicated: Only you can take mercy on me. The Prophet corrected him: It Only Allah who can save him from me. At this Asoor was overwhelmingly impressed and converted to Islam.
20.All Wars By the Prophet Were Only Defensive Wars
Non-believers persecuted Muslims to wipe out Islam from the surface of Earth. When they did not succeed in obtaining their purpose they resorted wars. Muslims were obliged to respond. A defensive war tantamounts to self-defense. And Self-defense is right of every gentleman. Even during defensive wars, the prophet desired their early end to resume the rosy panorama of peace period when conversion rate is enhanced. Even during his attitude was like a doctor who injects his patient for the purpose of his own health.
He never allowed more than three than stay at conquest-place firstly for the purpose of causing no inconvenience to the inmates and secondly, ensuring sufficient realization on the part of enemy that he has been subjugated.
21.Prophet Always Tried to Revert From Small Jehad to Great Jehad
He always wanted to finish small Jehad i.e. wars and revert back to great Jehad i.e.Self-purification.This is a fact that Islam spread more rapidly in peace periods than it spread during war periods. During Hudabia Pact, there were 1400 companions in Islamic Army. But this number became 10,000 two years latter on the occasion of Conquest of Mecca.(Pages:161-192 of the Book Shown in the Bottom)
1. Last Human In The Hell
Holy Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H. ) stated:
There will be a time when the last inmate of Hell, will be allowed to make an exit from Hell. All the seven doors of Hell will be clattering with wafts of winds passing through them with nobody inside.
When out of Hell, the last man will be much pleased and will feel very much relaxed. After some time he will see some greenery at a distance from him. He will request Allah
O Allah please allow me to go there for enjoying the greenery.
Allah will Allow him. After a lapse of short period, he will see some shady trees at a distance from him and he will request Allah for an access there. Allah will accede too, to his second request. But still he is far from contented. After a while he sees an Oasis with fruit trees, springs and birds. He can not help requesting the third time for granting the permission to proceed there. On hearing the third request, Allah asks him:
Oh my Supreme Creation! Would not I grant the whole world to you once for all?.
The man is taken aback by this offer and replies Allah:
Oh Allah please just don’t joke me.
2. Every Human will Be Young When in The Heaven
See the Sense Of Humor of Prophet in addition to a Great Metaphysical Fact.A joke is referred to Holy Prophet Mohammad (P.B.U.H.) – An Old Woman asked him to pray for her to get admittance in the Heaven. He answered that Old Women will not be allowed to enter the Paradise. The old woman was shocked. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H. ) rephrasing added:
She will be made young before her entry in the Heaven.
The old woman was delighted to hear glad tiding.

3. It is a tribute to Holy Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H. ) who attributed and associated the word “WORLD” to Humans more than once:
i. Killing a human is killing the world.
ii. In the Hereafter Every Human will be granted one World Constructed by his own Imagination.Even the Worst sinner will be granted one complete world along with all its contents. He will be Emperor of this World with all it paraphernalia and Staff.
Orientalists object that Prophet Mohammad married Aisha at the age of 6. And, Practiced Theighing with her. Theighing with one’s Wife is not objectionable or questionable. Read the Full Refutation of this Charge in the Following Post.

1. Search Faith between Hope and Fear
2. Hoping from Allah is like Praying Allah
3. Patience is the Head of Morality
4. Intention of a Faithful is Better than His Actions.
5. Old Men and Women will be made young before their entry in the Heaven

Read the Book:Life of Mohammad
Read the Book Holy Prophet Mohammad
Read the pdf on Prophet
Followers of Every Prophet consider their prophet Best of all. They exaggerated their prophets so much as to declare a God e.g. Christians has say Jesus is a God.
How to decide this debate. Possibly, there can be following three criteria to decide this:
1. Representatives of every Religions may agree on a single criterion to decide which prophet is Superior of all. But all the references Must be based on based on the Revealed Book, Unmodified Original Version, of their Religion.
2. Second criterion can one’s own Wisdom and Acumen. But this method will be very controversial because Mental approaches of Everybody differ from Person to Person.
3. Representatives of every Religions may represent the Case of his Religion in his own way. But all the arguments should be based on The revealed book of their Religion e.g. Bible or Torah or Quran.
Many of the Attributes of Prophet Mohammad are uniquely related to himself Only.Other Prophets are missing in this category. Prophet Mohammad stands out singularly in the Attributes that are shared by others prophets. Here is a list of both Unique and Shared Attributes:
1. Kalima: Declaration of Faith in Islam
The Arabic Sentence: La-ilaha-Mohammad-ar-Rasullah means “There is no Illah (Worshipable) Except Allah and Mohammad is His Prophet. When a non-Muslim wants to convert to Islam, he/she has to utter this Sentence from mouth in its Arabic Form. There is not any Easier way to Subscribe to a new Religion.
2. Azaan: Announcement For Prayers
Mostly World religions call their Followers to their Worship-place (Church,) by ringing the bells. But in Islam Followers of called to Mosque by word of mouth i.e.Azaan which is announced at the top of one’s Voice.The Meanings of Azaan are like:God is the Greatest(4 times). I Witness Mohammad is the Prophet of Allah (2 times). Come to the Prayer; come to the Success(2 times).God is the Greatest (2 times). None is Worshipable Except Allah(1 time).
There are five times Compulsory daily prayers in Islam. These are spread from Dawn to 1/2 Hours After Dusk.There are also 3 optional prayers for Greater and Immediate Spiritual Benefits.Sense of Prayer is Most Extended in Islam as shown From the Following Categories:
(i) Daily Five Regular Prayers
(ii) Keeping Fast, Performing Pilgrimage, Paying Zakat and Alms to the Poor.
(iii) Doing any Good work with the View to please God is also called a Worship e.g. Earning Money through Fair Means and spending on good deeds is also Like Worshiping God.
Daroo in the first place means praying for the enhancing the Status of Prophet Mohammad. God sends Darood to the Prophet and also commands the faithfuls to send Darood to the Prophet.
In the second place, Darood means Pain.It implies paying Darood with great concentration, focus and earnestly.
5. Prophet of All Nations
All the prophets before Prophet Mohammad were meant for only a tribe, a clan or a Nation. But the Advent of Prophet Mohammad is for all the Nations inhabiting the Globe. Following three implications originate from this Fact:
(i) Message of God delivered to Prophet Mohammad is so comprehensive as to accommodate the Needs of all Humanity.
(ii) For Shaping all the Nations into one unit.
(iii) Now it is high time to turn the World into a Global Village.
6. Prophet of All Times
There is Mention of about 27 prophet in Holy Quran. But none was for all time. But academic paraphernalia of Islam Can withstand the onsets of time from quarters of Science, Philosophy and Atheism.
7. Shariah-Holy Quran
Prophets of two kinds.First is Prophets of Book or Prophets of Law. The Second one are Prophets With any Book. They are subordinate to Independent Prophets. Prophet Mohammad is a Prophet of Law. A book of law i.e. Holy Quran was revealed to him. This law continues to benefit the followers for the last 1400 years.It is preserved in its original form as against Bible or Torah. Thousands of believers memorize it completely or partially.Holy Quran includes all the good teachings of Holy Books. Holy Quran corrects mistakes in the previous revealed books because these were modified by human hand and mind.It is mentioned in Quran that Allah will protect its content and meaning.
8. Model for All Humans
All old prophets were model for their own nations. But Holy Quran has declared Prophet Mohammad Model for all the Humanity.All the dimensions of character of Old Prophets are found in Prophet Mohammad. Because all the conditions of human life were applied to Prophet Mohammad. That is why he is model for all the aspects of human life. All the non-obsolete teachings of Holy Books are included in Holy Quran. Two indispensable articles of faith in Islam include: (i) Believe in all the previous prophets and (ii) Believe in all the Holy Books.Therefore, followers of previous prophets have no difficulty in following the teachings of Islam.
All the prophets subjugated their enemies within their life or after their death. Prophetic period spanned 23 years. During 13 years of Mecca’s period only 80 to 300 people Professed Islam. Within 10 years of Medina Period Islam had disseminated in all the Arabia. Neither a disbeliever was in Mecca nor in Medina.
Letters were written and emissaries were sent to Kings for professing Islam. Emperors of Iran and Rome, super powers of those days, were also invited to accept Islam. Lords of Mecca who had been trying to obliterate Islam were themselves were put to naught in Badr war.
10.Centers of Islam
Mecca was founded by Abarham and Ismael. With the passage of time this foothold of monotheism was turned into sanctuary of idols. The Prophet wanted to overturn but he had to migrate to Medina.Within next 8 years he conquered Mecca.But did not settle in Mecca and returned to Medina. This gave Islam two centers.
11. Un-matchable Perfection Of His Biography
Biographical accounts of Prophets before Islam are not completely available.At the advent of Islam the art of writing has been fully developed. It worked wonders on natural attributes of Arabs who adept at memorizing longs accounts of family trees. That is why threadbare accounts of what the Prophet said (Hadith) or what he did(Sunnah) are preserved. Biographies of 13 thousand people have also have been written and preserved. One million traditions of his saying have been preserved.Prophet Mohammad excels all the prophets in this.
12.Successful Return to His Original Town
There is a saying of Jesus:
A Prophet Has No Disrespect Except in His House, His Hometown and Home country.
All the Prophets, including Moses and Jesus, when migrated from their native town could not return back.Prophet Mohammad is an exception. He migrated from Mecca to Medina and returned after 8 years as conqueror. This conquest of Mecca is still unprecedented in world history. Though he was accompanied by ten thousand army but there was no bloodshed. All the inmates of the city stepped into the fold of Islam.
13.Perfect Reflector of All Attributes of Allah
Though Mohammad was The Last Prophet bringing the Last Revealed Book. Even the status of Last Prophet is Enviable. But Abd is his Greatest of all statuses.
The purpose of human birth is worshiping God as stated in Holy Quran.Abd means having full Reflection. All Religious Humans try to color themselves in the Attributes of God.Prophets are at Highest Level in this Regard. Besides making himself Reflector of God, he made his companions Reflectors of Attributes of Allah.(Pages:81-93 of the Book Shown in the Bottom)
