If Prophet Muhammad could converse with the youth today, what sort of advice would he give them? What would he tell their elders? Of course, we have no real way of knowing, but we can make assumptions based on what we do know from the authentic traditions and narratives.

I thought of a man who rose to be the initiator of a new way of life that today has about 1.8 billion adherents spread across the world, a man who at the height of his success maintained the humility displayed in his youth. His wisdom, he asserted, was never his own...
Have we forgotten that God is always there, watching all our actions? Is it because we have lost much of our fear in God that we have stopped watching our behavior; acting distrustfully? Would the early Muslims act that way?
It was a critical moment. Had Asma become afraid, or if she had broken down, the Prophet's emigration to Madinah might have been thwarted. However, like her father, Asma had strong faith and conviction, and stood firm in the face of one of the most feared disbelievers in Makkah.
When I reverted back to Islam a few years ago, I bought a basic book about the life of Prophet Muhammad because no one will expect you to know everything about him in the beginning. This book helped me to dissipate some of the negative connotations attached to the Prophet.
The Prophet's approach inspires virtue. When reminded of Abdullah's frequent drunkenness, he boasted of that man's possessing the greatest virtue of loving Allah and His Messenger.

God loves His slaves to beautify their tongues with the truth, to beautify their hearts with sincere devotion, love, repentance and trust in Him, to beautify their faculties with obedience, and to beautify their bodies by showing His blessings upon them in their clothing...
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to love cleanliness and good scent. It was highlighted, in many hadiths, his love of fragrance and good scent like musk and ambergris.
Can you imagine one who was the gentlest of men, while being the most brave and just of all human being? We’re telling the most beautiful story that was ever told about the most beautiful and merciful of all human beings who ever lived.
The teachings of the last Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) are alive, have been fully preserved and made immortal. The guidance he has shown unto mankind is complete and flawless, and is enshrined in the Glorious Quran. All the sources of Islam are fully intact...
It might be useful to imagine how Prophet Muhammad would react if he could read the words we use on social media. With the greatest of ease, Muslims defame and slander each other in public forums. And they do so without the slightest care and with little or no understanding of Islamic etiquette and the sinful nature of such behavior.
