Allah says in the Holy Qur’an Chapter no. 33, Verse no. 21:
"Indeed, in the messenger of Allah, you have a good example to follow for him who believes in (the meeting with) Allah and the last day and remembers Allah much.”

The life of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) is full of moral lessons.

He is truthful, honest, patient and trustworthy. He is kind, God fearing and never hurt the feelings of others.
We have heard how the Quraysh tribal people gave him the name "Al-Amin", that is The Trustworthy). The quraysh tribal people used to keep their valuables with him. They would come to collect such properties after a long period of time.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) never cheats or takes any such valuables for himself. On the day of his migration from Makkah to Medinah that is during hijrath day, he left his nephew Aliyu bin Abi Thaalib behind. He left him so as to return the makkans properties under his care to their owners.

He led a very simple life. He is the symbol of simplicity.

He passed judgment among the people according to the Qur'anic teachings.

He was a good father and grandfather to his children.

He was a good and just husband to his wives.

He was a brave man. One day in Madinah, all the people were sleeping at night. Suddenly one big sound came from the far end. People were shocked and woken up. They came out of their houses to see what happened. From the farthest end where the strange sound came, one man was coming in a horse towards the people. That man was Rasool (S.A.W.). Prophet (S.A.W.) told them that nothing to worry about the sound. Such a brave person he was.

Prophet Muhammad (Sal) is a role model for human kind to live a healthy life as he was very active.
He is an effective Time Manager. He utilized his time on his whole life very effectively.

He had been a warrior; he was a strong man and good wrestling player also.

One of the famous wrestlers of that period called Rukana Bin Abdul Yazid, challenged Prophet (S.A.W.) to beat him in wrestling. Prophet beat him several times.

He was renowned for his eloquence and clarity of speech. It was easy for everyone to follow what he said.

Aysha (R.A.) described his way of speaking as follows: “Allah’s Messenger did not ramble on the way you do these days. His speech was clear and precise. Those who listened to him easily remembered what he said.”

The Prophet (S.A.W.) would sometimes repeat a statement three times to emphasize its importance. For instance, once when enumerating the major sins, he came to the point where he said: “And beware of making false testimony; beware of bearing false witness.”

When Aysha (R.A.) was asked about his characters, she said, "HIS CHARACTER IS THE QUR'AN".

Aysha (R.A.) said that the Prophet (S.A.W.) lived his whole life in line with the contents of the Holy Book.
All these show that we must follow his footsteps in all we do. We must keep away from all evil and devil deeds.

It is also our belief that Allah will assemble us on the Day of Judgment. For us to be happy that day, we must follow and practice the morals from the life of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.).
