The Sīrah - A Beacon Light for All By Shaykh-ul-Hadīth, Hadrat Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh The noble and graceful character of Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam is in total conformity to all the natural needs of man. His perfect human nature, sublimity of character, long suffering and forgiveness, magnanimity and grace, valour, benevolence, trust in Allāh ta‘ālā, modesty, honesty, humility, purity of heart, self-denial and forbearance, devotion and piety, fear of Allāh ta‘ālā, mercy, compassion and generosity, in all he is a perfect and beautiful example and a complete code of life for everyone. For rulers and heads of states, the life of the chief and king of the Arabs holds a perfect example. For the poverty stricken, the life of the one in whose house the fire was not lit for two months holds an example. For the liberators, the life of the liberator of Makkah holds a beautiful example, who forgave even his bitterest enemies. For those who have turned their backs on this world, the life of the lone worshipper in the solitude of the cave of Hirā is an example. For the labourers, the one who laboured strenuously in the digging of the trench is an example. The orphans can find solace if they look at the orphan of Āminah. The businessmen may inculcate honesty and piety within them, by looking at the life of the one who handled business in Syria. For the imām and judges, the great imām and judge of Al-Masjid An-Nabawī, who pronounced justice, without distinguishing between strong and weak is a worthwhile lesson. In a nutshell, there remains no facet of life which has not been covered by the noble life of Rasūlullāh sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam and in which there is not a beautiful example to follow. We must all study this great life which is a beacon light for every human, and imitate this greatest personality in every mode of our lives. May Allāh ta‘ālā enlighten our hearts with the love of His Rasūl sallallāhu ‘alayhi wasallam. Āmīn. (Extracted from ‘The Perfect Example’ published by the Islāmic Da‘wah Academy)
