The life of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was a sad mixture of the vicissitudes of time. He became orphan before he was begotten. He was hardly matured and the death snatched his mother. This was followed by the death of his grand father after a short while when he entered the prime phase of life, entered poverty but he did not lose his heart. He remained making breakthrough headway till a day came when all the worldly wealth rolled to his feet. He passed through all the tough phases of the life. When he got matured through ups and downs of life, and touched the threshold of forty years, he was conferred the prophet hood by Allah But this opened the flood-gate of all the animosity and hostile attitude, and this was so aggravated that his life was baffled for one more decade. His fault was nothing save his desire to save the creature of Allah from turning the fuel of the fire in retaliation to their idolatry and polytheism, for this act of benefaction, he was rewarded with such ticklish problems which compelled him to make exodus after endless tortures, solicitudes, and the hostility of the relatives that continued for a decade.
The patience and prowess of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was appreciated by Allah. Therefore, the time turned in his favor and the Islamic Doctrine crossed the Arab boundaries to the ramparts of the castles of Persian and Roman emperors. Though He (P.B.U.H.) was conferred the highest award in the shape of prophet hood, but still He (P.B.U.H.) continued to lead a simple life as he was doing in his childhood. He always did his work with his own hands and did not magnify his personality. He was engaged in his house with all the home-duties as others were doing in their own houses. With his own hands, he was milking his sheep, darning his clothes, and sewing his shoes. When it was decided that a mosque should be constructed in Madina, he personally participated in all the related works and even he did not hesitate to shift the bricks and stones to the construction sits equaling him with the labors. He was so simple in his dress that all his dress was a shirt, a sheet, an IZAR, and all these were cotton woven.
Here the point to be kept in mind is that this simple pattern of life was not due to poverty, celibacy and detachment from the world. But it was a trendsetter for the Ummah. To secure the peace one should lead a simple life notwithstanding all that he has
It is narrated by Hazrat Abu Hurairah (R.A) that the people suggested Him (P.B.U.H.) to pray against the polytheists. He (P.B.U.H.) refused their suggestion and told: I have not been sent to vent the wrath, but as the mercy for the world, Among the hallmarks of his character was that the followers in Madina more often were visiting him (P.B.U.H.) early in the morning with a bowl of water and he (P.B.U.H.) was immersing his hand in that water regardless of the freezing temperature. He never liked to belie their hopes. When a house-maid wanted some thing, she took his hand and led him wherever she wanted. He never hesitated to give her a helping hand.
He was married to Hazrat Khadijah while he was in a flourishing youth and she was older than him by 15 years. His company to her for a quarter century was a real paragon for ideal family life. Throughout this period, not a single incident occurred to scratch the heart. While slaughtering the sacrifice-goats, he managed to send the shares, first of all, to the friends and relatives of Hazrat Khadijah. after the sad demise of her, He (P.B.U.H.) always remembered her so affectionately that Ayesha, the most beloved wife of Prophet (P.B.U.H.) got jealous of her.
He was very kind and benevolent to the children. In those days, the girls were rated very low, but going against the wind, our Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was carrying Umamah D/o Zainab while offering prayer. When He was bending in Ruku, he was keeping her aside. and when he was standing, he was carrying her again.
It is narrated by Hazrat Anas (R.A.) that Abu Talha had a child, Abu Omair by name. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) was playing with him. Abu Omair had a nightingale which disappeared one day, causing to him a lot of grief and dejection. When he (Prophet) found him so. he asked him cheerfully to pacify him: O Abu Omair: where did the nightingale go?
Umme Khalid D/o Khalid Bin Sayeed narrates that she accompanied her father to Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and that she had put on a yellow shirt. When he cast his glance on the shirt, he commented: very nice: very nice: Then she turned behind him and began playing with the seal on His back. When his father dissuaded her, the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) told: Let her play.
When he returned to Makkah, the two children of Abdul Muttalib darted to him for his reception and he very lovingly carried one of them in front and the other behind.
All these testify that all the sayings, deeds and attachments of the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) Was authentic certitude of the verse, which reads as follows:
"And we have not sent you save as mercy for all the Universes".
