Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a loved personality, not only by Muslims; rather, history proves that many scholars who were not Muslims did admire him.
When closely examining his life, they found in him the best of manners. They found him a man who was able to succeed in a number of different roles.
We let you enjoy some excerpts of some western scholars about Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
The non-Muslim scholar, Prof. Ramakrishna Rao, said about the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him):
“The personality of Muhammad, it is most difficult to get into the whole truth of it. Only a glimpse of it I can catch. What a dramatic succession of picturesque scenes!
There is Muhammad, the Prophet. There is Muhammad, the Warrior; Muhammad, the Businessman; Muhammad, the Statesman; There is Muhammad, the Orator; Muhammad, the Reformer; Muhammad, the Refuge of Orphans; There is Muhammad, the Protector of Slaves; Muhammad, the Emancipator of Women; There is Muhammad, the Judge; Muhammad, the Saint. All in all these magnificent roles, in all these departments of human activities, he is alike a hero.”
