LIFESTYLE IMPOVERISHED BY CHOICE (3)

Assalamu alaikkum varah...

We can guess what sort of table spread would have been set by the poor Mulaika (May God be pleased with his deeds) who did not even have a decent mat to lay. Even ordinary people like us would not agree to dine with the destitute. But the great spiritual leader and emperor accepts the offer. The Prophet (peace be upon him) respects everyone's feelings. He succeeds where even an ordinary one fails

We see a definite discrimination shown between notables and ordinary ones by the leaders, whether they are spiritual leaders, politicians or rulers in power.



Spiritual leaders often announce ' that they are more cultured and matured than the commoner. If it is true the commoner and the notable should appear equal in their view.

These self-appointed spiritual leaders are worse than even an ordinary politician in discriminating people. The doors of these so-called spiritual heads are opened only to Presidents, Ministers, millionaires and celebrities. Ordinary people are able to get free sight of these leaders only in a public gathering or in the official public appearance. Similarly these spiritual heads go in search of the millionaires and inaugurate their commercial complexes and their posh houses. They never step into a hut or a cottage except for posing to the media.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) who is so simple and so humble is still afraid if any people would have suffered on account of him.

The declaration made by him five days before His death is a golden passage in his biography.
This incident is described vividly by Fazulul (May God be pleased with his deeds) :
I visited Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) when he was severely ill at ease. There was a red bandage beside him. The Prophet said to me," Oh, the son of my great paternal uncle. Please tie it around my head. I took the red bandage and tied it around his head. He leaned on me and we entered into the mosque. A large number of people had gathered in the mosque as the Prophet (peace be upon him) was in his deathbed.

He addressed the gathering, "Oh People! Certainly I am also a man like you. The time of my departure from all of you may be nearing. Hence, if I ever have caused any damage to your honour, if I ever have harmed even a hair of yours, and if ever I have caused any loss to your wealth, please come forward and settle your account with this Muhammad. I am Muhammad . I am here right before you. Here is the honour of Muhammad. Here is the hair of Muhammad. Here is the body of Muhammad. Rise up, Oh the affected party! Settle your account with me. Don't say that you are afraid of getting my hate or hostility. Understand this very well. Surely, hatred and hostility is not part of my character." He said this and returned.

He came to the mosque the next day and made the same promulgation and added, "Those who settle their account with me are the closest to me. Then a man got up from the crowd. " Oh, The Messenger of Allah. Once a man came to you and begged. You asked whether there was anyone willing to lend you some money in order to give him. I gave you three Dhirhams (Sliver coin of that period)." Immediately the Prophet called me and said, "Give to him whatever he demands."

The Prophet (peace be upon him) then visited the women's quarter. The women also replied to him in the same manner.

Muznath Abeeaqla According to the narration by the above one the Holy Prophet at his deathbed calls the people to settle their accounts if they had any dues from him. He declares that the best among his friends are those who come forward openly and settle their accounts due to them, be it a big amount or small one, in cash or in kind.

No one on earth but Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) who was designated to be a true model of righteous life, had the courage to declare, 'Those who settle their account with me are the ones closer to me than others?' Only this great man has the ability to announce like this.

Nobody on earth filled with materialists or anybody running after material well-being has the courage to stand up and say " Only those who come forward and settle their account with me are closer to me than anybody else."

Only this greatest man has the pure and bold character to make such a free and frank declaration because God has designated him with total guidance to serve as a model for the men and women of all generations to come in all walks of life.

Inspite of his declaration and even after the Prophet (peace be upon him) had cleared all their doubts, not one came up with a complaint, "You beat me or you scolded me." They only complained that he had forgotten the loans that were borrowed for only common weal. Otherwise not a single man or woman was harmed even an atom's weight.

Neither a king nor any sort of ruler ever addresses his subjects or citizens like this. In this book we have used the phrase "the companions' of The Prophet (peace be upon him) all along. One need not take that the Prophet (peace be upon him) must have had only a few friends but the Prophet (peace be upon him) magnanimously declared, "Every one who accepts Islam and joins me in rank is my friend."

No spiritual leader ever addresses his followers as friends. In contrast they are called as their students or disciples.

The Prophet (peace be upon him) is the only leader, the only king, the only spiritual head who called his disciple and followers as his dear friends.

Even to this day the Muslims address all those who follow the Prophet as their friends. Could the Prophet have taken up his position just for the sake of name or fame by calling his disciples and followers as friends and by treating all of them equal to him?

He had also instructed all his followers not to praise him more than he ever deserved.
He had also warned them not to go beyond the limit of his worthiness in praising him.
When the Prophet heard someone saying, Oh our leader. Oh the son of our leader Oh the best one among us. Oh the son of the best one among us! He said: Oh! mankind. Be careful. Fear God. Let not Satan detract you from your right path. I am Muhammad the son of Abdullah.I am only The Slave and the Messenger of God. By God I never like being raised above the rank blessed by God. Ahamed

Then God's Apostle said, 'Do not praise me excessively as Jesus, son of Mary (peace be upon him) was praised, but call me God's Slave and His Apostle.'Narrated by Ibn Abbas (May God be pleased with his deeds) Buhari 8.817

Can we imagine that the Prophet would ever have liked to get name and fame through his position when he had very strictly warned people not to praise him beyond limit?
