Mysticism, Trustworthiness And Social Activism, The Three Brightest Sides Of Prophet Muhammad’s Personality That Muslims Today Need To Remember

Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi, New Age Islam

In one of his recent speeches. Mr. Sultan Shahin, the founder editor of New Age Islam, triggered a thought-provoking and brainstorming process: “ ... It is very important for us to study what the Prophet did before he was chosen by God to be his messenger. We don't know much but what we do tells us that he spent hours and days in mediation… ..." Mr. Shahin continued: "The mystic meditations of the prophet in the cave of Hira (Ghar-e-Hira) for weeks at a stretch are well known, and so are his personality traits like honesty and total trustworthiness, for which the Meccans had named him al-Ameen (The Trustworthy). But perhaps not many know about his social activism and his fond memories and moving descriptions of these activities during his days as prophet. The Prophet and his allies in the organisation were active in search of justice for all, particularly the wayfarers, traders from foreign soil who had been wronged by Meccans and other oppressed and exploited.”
