Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is praised in the Qur’an for his noble character and refined manners.
In this talk, sister Yasmin Mogahed talks about the mercy and compassion of the Prophet, and how his life since he was born was a training for this compassion and a preparation for him to carry out his mission.
The inspiration we should get when we reflect on his life should benefit us as a model for compassion in our lives today, starting with our compassion and mercy for the closest people to us, starting with parents and family.
Following his Sunnah is not just following his outward actions in what he wore and how he grew his beard, but following his kind and generous dealings with other people around him.
