Before you read on I have a request. Don’t just read through this post considering it full of only a bunch of adjectives. All the attributes mentioned here were really present in Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. It is proved with references. And since we are supposed to follow him so pause at each attribute and think about it. And then whether you have it or not and how you could instill it in yourself. You could also take one now and say to yourself, ‘I’ll incorporate this one in me and then come back for the next one inshaAllah’. (I am planning on doing this, inshaAllah. Make dua for me). Do share your experiences. Read on! :D
Face of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w had liveliness and cheerfulness about it. He had an ‘easy’ disposition and was not harsh. He never used to call out loudly in the market. He used to smile a lot. He barely ever got angry. (He only got angry at the right thing).
One of his distinguishing characteristics was willingness. Willingness here means to accept or conciliate. Acceptance is a very important quality, indeed!
When he had to choose between two things he took the easy one (provided of course, that both were equally halal or lawful).
Prophet Muhammad s.a.w stayed far away from sin. He was generous, brave and gracious (kareem). He was patient when afflicted with harm. He was dignified and modest.
If he disliked something, it showed (on his face). He s.a.w never stared.
What is our reaction if we dislike something? We become enraged. Instead of getting in a rage, try to think of humans as weak. They will repeat mistakes, just like we do.
A believer is like a mirror for the other believer. Make the other person’s face right i.e. cheer him up. How? By giving a smile. If he does not return the smile, give it again. :)
Prophet Muhammad s.a.w was just, pure of soul and chaste. He was truthful and trustworthy. He was also hospitable. He was far away from arrogance. And he was affectionate and merciful. He s.a.w had a frank conduct. He was very far away from indecent talk.
He smiled but never indulged in loud laughter. When he felt happy about something, his face shone like the moon. So you could tell it by his face. <3
