The writer says that the people of Arabia were expressive and had extraordinary memory. They used to write poetry even though a fair of the poetical competition was held at Ukaz. The writer adds to it by saying that Allah sent His final Holy book Quran in the Arabic language because this language was more common in Arabia.
According to the writer, in the fifth and sixth centuries, there was chaos in mankind and civilization was becoming weaker. Then Allah sent a Prophet who raised the faith in Allah and saves humanity from ignorance. When the Holy Prophet reached thirty-eight, he used to stay alone in the Hira cave along with his food and worship Allah.
He was the great savior of humankind. He wanted to put an end to wrong beliefs, unfairness, unkindness, and social evils. This was the time when he was near to receiving prophethood. One day, Hazrat Jibril A.S came to Him in the cave of Hira and conveyed Him the Message of Allah. This was the first revelation from Allah that continued till twenty-three years.
The Holy Prophet started preaching Islam and the oneness of Allah. He wanted to unite mankind, destroy false notions, and disbeliefs. His main mission was to dignify mankind with a strong faith in Allah.
Most of the Arabians were against the Holy Prophet who refused to follow Him. They pressurized him to worship the idols. Even they sent their representatives to the Prophet’s uncle Hazrat Abu Talib to restrain his nephew. But Hazrat Muhammad firmed at his mission. At this, His uncle appreciated and encouraged Him.
The Holy Prophet continued to follow the way that Allah had chosen for mankind. He faced all challenges with His firm determination and Allah’s help. All the Arabs conquests were made possible due to His leading ability.
If we see the Arab conquests, we find Hazrat Muhammad the best political leader. It was His faith in Allah, love for humanity, and the great character that he had changed the whole of mankind. We can say that his overall life is a great model we can follow. According to Hazrat Ayesha, “His morals and character are an embodiment of the Holy Quran”. Allah had sent Him to tell people the good things and warn them about wrongdoings.
