ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves

A Reminder

Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaehi Wasallam) The savior of mankind, from whom flows directly all what is great in modern life.

"And indeed, you are of a great moral character." Surah Al-Qalm:4
Of all the men that have been and all the men there will be, he's the best among them all.

"And raised high for you your repute." Surah Ash-Sharah:4
his (sallallahu alehi wasallam) name is in high regards among all angels and humans.

"It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom - although they were before in clear error -" Surah jumu'a:2
he (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) not only reads and explain to us what is revealed on him but also he purifies us of all the filth that we have inside us.

"Say, [O Muhammad], "O mankind, indeed I am the Messenger of Allah to you all, [from Him] to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. There is no deity except Him; He gives life and causes death." So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the unlettered prophet, who believes in Allah and His words, and follow him that you may be guided." Surah Al-Aeraf:158
We can be saved only if we follow what he (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) brought to us from Allaah.

"O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result" Surah Nisa:59
If we want to resolve our disputes however big or small they are, his (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) example is to be followed. In him (sallallahu alaehi wasalam) we can salvage ourselves.

"And whoever has disbelieved - let not his disbelief grieve you. To Us is their return, and We will inform them of what they did. Indeed, Allah is Knowing of that within the breasts." Surah Luqmaan:23

It saddened him to large extents when inhabitants of Makkah didn't believe in his teachings, since he was saving them of themselves, from hellfire. Preaching them the most righteous way.

"We are most knowing of what they say, and you are not over them a tyrant. But remind by the Qur'an whoever fears My threat." Surah Qaaf:45
He took his duty so seriously. He (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) really really wanted them to come under the blessing of Islam. Allaah tala told him;

"So remind, [O Muhammad]; you are only a reminder." Surah Ghashyah:21
That you just have to remind them. you are not the responsible if they don't believe in what we reveal.

"O you who have believed, do not raise your voices above the voice of the Prophet or be loud to him in speech like the loudness of some of you to others, lest your deeds become worthless while you perceive not. Indeed, those who lower their voices before the Messenger of Allah - they are the ones whose hearts Allah has tested for righteousness. For them is forgiveness and great reward" Surah Al-Hujurat:2,3
His respect is imminent all the time. Even people are warned not to speak in loud tones in front of him (sallallahu alaehi wasallam) and also, we shouldn't outspeak him when his name is being taken.

"And those who believe and do righteous deeds and believe in what has been sent down upon Muhammad - and it is the truth from their Lord - He will remove from them their misdeeds and amend their condition."
He is a blessing for us. A pure timeless blessing who has been sent down upon us more than 1400 years ago by Allaah (Subhana wa ta'ala)

so what do we do now? How do we thank Allaah for this huge never-ending blessing? And how do we thank Hazrat Muhammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam for his hard work and heartache for his people?

"Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace." Surah Al-Ahzab:56
send him blessings, O believers.

"Say, [O Muhammad], "If you should love Allah, then follow me, [so] Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." Surah Al-i-Imran:31
Thing to do, to please both Allaah and Hazrat Mohammad sallallahu alaehi wasallam, act upon what he preached.

Allahumma sally ala muhammadin wa ala aali muhammadin kama sallayta ala ibraaheema wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hameedum majeed. Allahumma baarik ala muhammadin wa ala aali muhammadin kama barakta ala ibrahima wa ala aali ibrahima innaka hameedum majeed.

  1. Beautiful!
    Another excellent post :)
    Jazakallah for sharing!
    I think apart from invoking durood on our beloved Prophet (saw), we should try to inculcate his example in our lives so that we can show the world what his true character is like.
