One against All

One against All

This struggle of one against all proceeded, in which the Prophet  started to publicly worship Allah, the Most Exalted, before the eyes of Quraish at the Ka‘bah, in broad daylight, without regard for the Mushrikin and their persecution.

Open Preaching of Islam

Open Preaching of Islam

The warner’s cries kept reverberating through Makkah. Shortly afterwards, Allah Almity revealed His Command of open and  general  preaching  of  Islam,  saying:  "Proclaim  openly  that which you are commanded, and turn away from the Mushrikin." (pbuh).

On Mount As-Safa

On Mount As-Safa

After three years of secret preaching of Islam to individuals a group of first believers emerged, firmer than mountains, closer than brothers, ready to shoulder and convey the Message, following which the Prophet (pbuh) received the Divine Command  of  declaring  the  Call  to  the  Quraish:  "Warn,  (O Muhammad), your closest kindred."( Ash-Shu‘ara’ 26: 214).

Darkness

Darkness

Clouds of multilayered darkness covered the minds and lives of the people of Jahiliyyah (Pre-Islamic Days of Ignorance of Allah), who were dragged down into the evil depths of idolatry, debauchery, and sin.

Daybreak

Daybreak

Daybreak slowly pushes darkness out until daylight spreads everywhere; so was the Prophet of Mercy (pbuh) commanded to preach Islam, slowly pushing darkness, breaking the idols,  and guiding people to Allah Almighty.

Arise and Warn!

Arise and Warn!

Arise! There is no longer time for rest. Pull yourself away from the warmth of home and family and come to striving. Arise and shoulder the Message. Arise for humanity to worship their Creator. Arise to defeat darkness, eliminate Shirk, and uplift the Word of Allah most high.

Singular Capacity

Singular Capacity

This singular capacity for mercy is traced all along the Prophet’s life. To grasp a glimpse of its expansiveness, you must envision him warning people on Mount As-Safa, going from one house to another in Mina, following people in marketplaces, assemblies, and gatherings, calling out: “O people! Say, ‘There is no god but Allah’ and you will succeed.”

Mercy to the Enemy

Mercy to the Enemy

To the Prophet (pbuh), ‘Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul, the chief of hypocrites in Al-Madinah, was a worse enemy than the disbelievers. He was the one who rudely treated the Prophet (pbuh) when he (pbuh) first arrived in Al-Madinah and happened to pass by a gathering in which ‘Abdullah bin Ubai bin Salul was present, before ‘Abdullah embraced Islam.

Dissolving All Differences in His Message to All

Dissolving All Differences in His Message to All

Without specifying a certain class, race, or origin, or making a special mention of Muslim followers, the Prophet of Mercy (pbuh) teaches, saying: “Show mercy to those on the earth, and He Who is in the heaven will show mercy to you.” (Abu Dawud). 

Power of Caring, Loving, and Reaching All

Power of Caring, Loving, and Reaching All

Such capacity for preaching the Message to all emanates from the Prophet’s special capacity for loving and caring for all, “I am sent to every red and black person.” (Sahih Muslim) By the red the Prophet (pbuh) meant the non-Arabs, and by the black he (pbuh) meant the Arabs.
