sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam?

We follow his example because his life is the most perfect of lives. Allah

chose Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, based on His

Knowledge and Wisdom. He selected him over all humans. Thus, we must learn about his blessed life that was guided and decreed by Allah; perhaps his lifestyle would become a beacon for us and a cause of salvation for our nation. The following are more reasons why we must follow the example of Prophet of Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam:

Out of obedience to Allah’s Orders:

We should follow the example of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi

wa sallam, because we were ordered to do so by Allah. He, the Exalted,

Says (what means):

«There has certainly been for you in the Messenger of Allah an excellent pattern (example) for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Last Day and [who] remembers Allah often.»

[Quran: 33:21]

And Allah warned us against disobeying the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu‘alayhi wa sallam. He Says (what means):

«So let those beware who dissent from the Prophet’s order, lest Fitnah (trial) strike them or a painful punishment.»

[Quran: 24:63]

Because Allah made Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi was allam, Faultless:

We should follow the Prophet’s example because his life was free from

faults. He was chosen by Allah to deliver His message and was worthy of

being followed. Allah safeguarded the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi

wa sallam, and protected him against all faults. In the event he did make a

mistake (because he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, used his best judgment

in cases where he did not receive revelation), Allah did not approve of it

and rectified it.

Thus, such a person is worth following, his biography is worth studying

and his guidance is worth learning.

 The Prophet’s life contained great wisdom:

We should follow the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, because

his life contained great wisdom, whether in matters of faith, manners,

guidance, and perseverance in calling towards Allah and fighting

evil.

 Following the Prophet’s example is the condition for achieving success and victory:

We will never gain success and victory unless we follow the example

of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, in his sayings, actions

and manners. Hasn’t Allah made the Prophet’s biography and manners

an example for us?

 The Prophet served as an example in all situations:

As a man, a husband, a brother, a Prophet, a ruler, a leader, Allah made

the Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, an example for us to

follow in all circumstances.

 Learning the Prophet’s biography is necessary to follow him:

We must learn how to follow the example of the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu

‘alayhi wa sallam. We must learn various aspects of his life including

the way he dealt with different people.
