Lessons from the Prophet (pbuh)

Nov 02, 2020

By Naadiya Adams


The month of Rabbi-ul Awwal brings with it a commemoration for our beloved Prophet ﷺ and the life he led, as this month marks both his birth and his passing. 

Jamiatul Ulama South Africa’s Moulana Ebrahim Bham talks about some lessons we can take from the life of our Nabi ﷺ. Bham emphasises the greatness of the Prophet ﷺ and admits that we, servants of the Almighty, do not possess the eloquence in which to describe the kind of man Rasulullah ﷺ was. “We believe firmly, that the birth of our Nabi ﷺ was the most significant event in human history, because of the positive impact and the greatness that came upon humanity because of Nabi ﷺ and his presence in this world,” says Moulana Bham.

Moulana Bham explores the reasons why Allah sent to us Prophet ﷺ Citing the Holy Qur’aan, he reads, “Verily the life of Nabi ﷺ is a perfect example for you to emulate, to bring it into your life and to have a perfect life.” A fitting tribute for our Nabi ﷺ is to follow his example he says.

Our Prophet ﷺ saw many trials and tribulations, triumphs, and losses, but he weathered the storm, and his life stands as a perfect example from which we can draw strength and knowledge as Muslims in challenges we face daily.

According to Moulana Bham, the first lesson we should take from the Prophet ﷺ is to nurture your relationship with Allah, through filling your heart with love as you approach Allah in ibadah.

As much as our Nabi ﷺ loved Allah, he also feared him and the second lesson teaches us how to fear Allah, and how to relate to Allah through our interactions with him.

He believed in simplicity, and he chose ease, kindness, and he chose compassion in his daily interactions. When Rasulullah ﷺ, was given a choice, he always picked the easier path, on condition it bore no sin.

Moulana Bham says mercy and kindness during the time of the Nabi (SAW) was the rule, while harshness was the exception. Bham describes how when Rasulullah ﷺ was ordered to deal harshly with the mushrikeen (those who associate Allah with others) he responded “I was not sent by Allah to curse people, I was sent as a Rahmah. I was sent as a person who shows kindness and mercy to people.” 

The Qur’aan bears testimony of how he was loved for his kindness and at the cusp of Moulana Bham’s teaching is how we should emulate our Nabi’s ﷺ character in our daily lives.
