Hero of all times——-
Posted September 21, 2012on:
Orphan hood is the extreme of helplessness and our hero’s life upon this earth began with it. Kingship is the height of material power and His life ended with it. From an orphan harassed refugee, to an overlord. Spiritual as well as worldly, was a trendsetter of its destinies. With all trials and temptation, all lights and shades, ups and downs, terror and splendor, he, has stood the fire of the world and came out unmarked, to serve as a model in every phase of life. His achievements are not limited to one aspect of life, but cover the whole field of human conditions.
Reverend Bosworth Smith remarks: “Head of the State as well the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but, he was the Pope without the Pope’s claims and Caesar without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without fixed income. He had all power without its instruments and without its support. He ruled by a right divine.
The Hero of all times, mended his own shoes and coarse woolen garments, milked the goats, swept and kindled the fireplace along with other work of the family. His food was dates and water.
He was human to the marrow of his bones. Human sympathy, human love was the music of his soul. To serve man, to elevate man, to humanize was the object of his mission.
“He was the Messenger of the One True God: and never to his life’s end did he forget for a moment who he was! He was one of those happy few, who have attained the supreme joy of making one great truth their very life-spring.” (Stanley Lane Poole. Memoirs)
“Those who believe Islam was spread by force are fools, who neither know the ways of Islam not the ways of the world.
(Balbir Singh, Navan Hindustan 1947.)
“Under his influence people became united in one bond which they knew not. The bond of true monotheism.” (L. E. Brown, the Eclipse of Christianity in Islam.)
“Muhammad saved the human civilization from extinction.” (J.H.Denison, Emotions as the Basis of Civilization.)
