Ramadan 2007 (Seerat-e-Mustufa (S.A.W))



The humility of Holy Prophet (S.A.W) is a uniqueness unfound in any other person. Allah (S.W.T) gave the Holy Prophet (S.A.W) the choice of leading a king's life or the life of a bondsman. He chose the life of a bondsman.

Seeing the humility of Rasoolullah (S.A.W), Hazrat Israfeel (A.S) once said,

“O Prophet of Allah (S.W.T), It is because of this humbleness that Allah (S.W.T) has created you most excellent. You are the most respected and elevated of the Children of Adam (A.S), on the Day of Qiyaamah (Judgment) you will be the first to come out of your grave, and your intercession shall be accepted.”  (Zarqaani, Vol. 4 Pg. 262 & Shifaa, Vol. 1, Pg. 86)

Hazrat Abu Umamah (R.A) narrates that, once the Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) emerged from His home while holding an Asaa (Stick) in His hand. All the Sahabah Ikraam (R.A) thereafter stood in respect for him.

Seeing this, He (S.A.W) said on the basis of humility, “You people should not stand as how Ajami (non-Arabs) stand to show respect. I am but a slave of Allah (S.W.T), and I eat and sit like other slaves of Allah (S.W.T).” (Shifaa Shareef, Vol. 1, Pg. 86)

Hazrat Sayyidah Bibi Aisha (R.A) states, “Rasoolullah (S.A.W) used to accept the invitation of the poor even if they invited him for rough bread. He (S.A.W) would also visit the destitute (poor) when they were sick, and would humbly sit and talk with the Sahabah Ikraam (R.A).” (Shifaa Shareef, Vol. 1, Pg. 77)

Hazrat Abu Saeed Khudri (R.A) states, “Rasoolullah (S.A.W) used to do household chores with his own blessed hands, help his khaadims, and would also sit with them to eat!” (Shifaa Shareef Vol. 1, Pg. 77)

Hazrat Umar (R.A) reported that, Rasoolullah (S.A.W) said: “Do not exceed in praising me as the Christians over-praised 'Esa (A.S) (Jesus). They made him the son of God. I am a bondsman of Allah (S.W.T), therefore call me the bondsman of Allah (S.W.T) and His Rasool (S.A.W).” (Shamaa-il Tirmidhi)
