The life style of PROPHET MUHAMMADTRUST (SAW is incomparable to everyone in every field of life. PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW) was sent 1400 years ago to call to the mankind to follow the true path no matter Muslim or Non Muslim, white or black, male or female. Not only Muslims but a lot of Non Muslim thinkers endorse the belief that Prophet Muhammad (SA) was the greatest personality even seen by the world. It is obvious and clear that nobody can challenge or deny the perfect personality of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) . An American author and scientist Dr.Michal Hart wrote a book, The Hundred great personalities of the world according to their life style and affect .He put prophet Muhammad (SAW) at serial number one although the writer is a Christian according to writer “HE (SAW) was the only man in history who emerged supremely successful at akk levels. The champion of non violence and pioneer of India’s freedom struggle M.K.Gandi has once said “I wanted to know the best of the people who hold today an undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind, I became more than ever convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life.
It was the simplicity, the utter self effacement of the Prophet (SAW) the unmatched regard for pledges his intense devotion to his friends and followers ,his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and his own mission. Indian famous Scholar Professor.K.S Ramakrishna Rao praised Prophet Muhammad(SAW) in his booklet, “MUHAMMAD THE PROPHET OF ISLAM’’. He writes that Muhammad (SAW) was more than honest. He was human to the marrow of his bone. Human sympathy, human love, was the music of his soul. To serve man, to elevate man, to purify man, to educate man, to humanize man, this was the object of his mission. Admitting his eternal faith Professor Rao writes “circumstances changed but the Prophet of God did not. In victory or in defeat, in power or in adversity, he was the same man, displayed the same character.” India’s first Prime Minister late Pandit Jawahar. Lal. Nehrualso writes in his book, ‘THE GLIMPSE OF WORLD HISTORY’ that PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW was a rebel against many of the existing social customs. The religion He (SAW) preached simplicity and it’s flavour of democracy and equality appealed to the masses in the neighboring countries that had been grown down long enough by autocratic Kings. Swami Vivekanda’s view about Prophet Muhammad(SAW) is also clear as he says that Islam came as a message for masses. The first message was equity. No more questions of race,colour,or anything else. Join it. Message was perfectly simple. Believe in One God, creator of heaven and Earth. Another Non Muslim writer Philip Hitti in his book ’‘The history of Arabs” confesses that, “sterile Arabia seems to have been converted as if by magic into a nursery of heroes, the like of whom in number and equality is hard to find anywhere”.The famous playwright, George Bernard Shaw who got The Nobel prize for his book, The Genuine of Islam writes I, have always held the religion of MUHAMMAD (SAW) in high esteem because of his wonderful vitality.
It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilatory capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him the wonderful man in my opinion he must be the saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to take a dictator of the modern world he would succeed in solving it’s problems in a way, that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness. I have prophesied about the faith of Muhammad (SAW) that it would be acceptable to the world of tomorrow as it is beginning to acceptable to the Europe of today. Last but not the least throughout history many Non Muslim thinkers and intellectuals were fascinated by the personality of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) and highly praised his principles and achievements .The beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) was merciful even towards his enemies. In Makkah, his people inflicted him with every kind of suffering, eventually forcing Him to migrate to Madinah and then waged war on Him for five years. However when he conquered Makkah without bloodshed in twenty first years of his Prophethood he asked the Makkah unbelievers ‘you go free no reproach this day May Allah forgive you’. In fact Prophet Muhammad(SAW) was much kind-hearted and his eyes brimmed with tears at a very little act of inhumanity. Reality beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) shows the right way to the Allah. We can succeed in this world and hereafter by following his teachings not only for Muslims but also for the whole universe.
