As explained in the class, muslims have to obey Allah in every thing, so they should not make Allah angry by their mistakes. For example, "when the prophet saw Abu Mas’ood al-Budari when he was beating his servant, and the prophet told Abu Mas’ood al-Budari that Allah has power over you more than you have over this servant. After that Abu Mas’ood al-Budari told the prophet he will never hit a slave again" (Al-Munajid,61). Also, the prophet told his companions the punishment which was for some people who made some major mistakes to make his companions and all people afraid of Allah. The Prophet said, "A woman entered the (Hell) Fire because of a cat which she had tied, neither giving it food nor setting it free to eat from the vermin of the earth.
This book is about a Biography of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The biography of the Prophet is a very noble and exalted subject by which Muslims learn about the rise of Islam, and how Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was chosen by Allah to receive the divine revelation. From the reading I realize that, we know more about seerah (the history of our prophet) and it benefited us. From the reading also I can develop the proper love of Muhammad (PBUH) in my hearts. As we know loving prophet Muhammad is ‘Ibadah.
He had the kunya `Al Amin' meaning trustworthy, which would allow the people of Mecca to be aware that he was not making this up helping him convince them that Islam was the monotheistic religion they were waiting for. Professor Watts states that Muhammad had a `creative imagination' that worked at deep levels making it believable for him to interact with God and preach his message. Muhammad was not a read... ... middle of paper ... ...se fields that they left permanent and inerasable imprints on all centuries and in the corners of the world. His speech was so effective and incisive that human beings in all times listen to him.

They prefer the word guidance to the word teaching because they believe that the sought-after relationship with God can be reached only through personal experience. The original Sufis, though they seem far from the orthodox views, maintained a very close tie with original Islamic doctrine. Their differences were considerable, but the link with orthodoxy was 'guaranteed by their acceptance of the law and ritual practices of Islam. '; The Sufis believe that a person's soul abides with God before it ever inhabits the body of man. This connection is the reason for all Sufi practice.
Muslims read the Qur’an in the original Arabic so that they are sure that their knowledge is correct. Many Muslim scholars think that the Qur’an should never be translated into other languages because of the risk of mistakes. 5. Muslims also accept the authority of the Qur’an because it helps them to understand the qualities and nature of Allah and it shows them how to follow His straight path. Also, the Qur’an provides a framework of belief about Allah and can give those who choose to follow the teachings an inner peace.
He was inspired to preach what he had learned and over time, he gained much support as well as opposition. To Muslims, The Koran is their guide to life and living. It is the primary source for Islamic law. It clearly outlines what is right and wrong and makes recommendations for how to live a good, moral and ethical life. Love, community and responsibility are three very prevalent themes throughout the entire Koran.
In these terms humans understanding, the Quran goes a long way to just satisfying the human intellect; it guides or forces one to reflect on their actions. The Quran is filled with quotes and expressions which are there to guide us and help us in our time of need. One of the most important points to bolster up the fact that Quran and Islam are the complete religion are due to the fact that even science is backing up all of the points made in the Quran which have even forced non believers to seek guidance and knowledge from the Quran they look to Quran so that they could extract the necessary information from it so that they can prove their experiments and proofs ,some of the important and main points about science mentioned in the Quran are the big bang theory ,embryology, photosynthesis and many more . There is not a single statement that has not been proved by the modern discoveries of the society. Another important characteristics of the Quran is that it has been written in very east and clear terms if you compare it to some other holy books as they have been written in a very difficult dialect.
Each report is a hadith considered as having authority because God enjoys guidance by the Prophet through the Quran. Sunna confirms the Quran as the traditional theory affirms and assists in interpretation or fills empty parts of the lines. Islamic formulas to dilute or eliminate the protections afforded by international human rights law are critically assessed by Ann Elizabeth Mayer. She discusses how these schemes reflect current debates in Muslim societies. Mayer discusses the political motives behind the selective use of elements of the Islamic tradition by conservative groups who oppose Muslim`s aspirations to enjoy human rights.

A main goal of Islam is to improve the community, but it takes every individual’s effort to do so. Personal identity comes from a Muslim’s choice in the ways to aid the umma and his/her path to Allah.

This policy is very convenient and effective for Muhammad to spread his religion. It is very motivating to believe you have God on your side during a war. I have been somewhat critical of the author at times, but this is only because he opens the door for the reader to think. I would not be able to formulate opinions if he hadn’t questioned whether Muhammad was being a fair and effective leader. After all, he greatly changed the course of history as we know it.
