A Study of the Seera’h of the Holy Prophet (SAW) – A Mercy for Mankind- as Exemplified by his Life
The prophet of Islam, Muhammad (SAW) has been introduced by Allah, the Creator of this universe, as the “Mercy for the whole universe”. The holy Prophet (SAW) lived his entire life as a testimony to this grand compliment from Allah Almighty. His extraordinary compassion towards his followers, all other human beings is acknowledged to be worth copying and there has been no denial of the claim yet. He was an epitome of love, mercy, compassion and tolerance. He not only practiced these virtues himself, but also inculcated them in his companions, advised his followers i.e. all Muslims to practice and preach them to entire humanity at large. He forgave his worst enemies and tormentors when he subdued them, either individually, or collectively. His historic declaration of universal pardon on the conquest of Makkah has no parallel in history. His life history and teachings are replete with examples of extreme compassion and mercy. This paper is an attempt to bring home this point by presenting the evidences to support this claim.
