A greater man the world has not yet seen, nor will ever see. A saviour in every manner of speech the Prophet Muhammad was wisdom, intellect, beauty and a miracle for the whole world. Philosopher, orator, apostle, legislator, warrior, conqueror of ideas, restorer of rational dogmas, of a cult without images; the founder of twenty terrestrial empires and of one spiritual empire, that is Muhammad. As regards all standards by which human greatness may be measured, we may well ask, is there any man greater than he?

When islam was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, it was not merely a concept to direct the mind as most of the previous religions were, it was also a source of purification for our body and enlightenment of our soul. The Prophet guided the people in two ways: with words for their minds and physical influence for their souls. When both were improved the environment of physical purification was ready. Much more than his words and the truth of their contents, it was the personality of the prophet that forced people to except him as their prophet.

He is known as the Leader of the two worlds, yet when he conquered Makkah, his only words were "You are forgiven. Go in peace, you are forgiven." The people of Makkah persecuted him, starved him and his family and put every kind of sanction upon him, until they drove him out of his hometown, his place of birth. He looked back at his city and said "Were it not for them (persecutors), I would never leave you," yet upon his triumphant return as ruler, he remained forgiving and ever compassionate.

If greatness of purpose, smallness of means, and astounding results are the true criteria of human genius, who could dare to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad? The most famous men created arms, laws and empires only. They founded, if anything at all, no more than material powers which often crumbled away before their eyes. This man moved not only armies, legislations, empires, peoples and dynasties, but millions of men in one-third of the inhabited world; and more than that, he moved the altars, the gods, the religions, the ideas, the beliefs and the souls.

These are only a few characteristics of Allah's chosen messenger. His words of truth and love, peace and justice, courage and modesty still ring in our ears fourteen thousand years later. His fragrance still lingers in Medina and our hearts are alive with his remembrance. Words could never and will never do him justice.

Muhammad taught the Muslims how to do thing in manners that would please Allah and get them into the place Allah promises to his followers in heaven.
