Ways of The Prophet (S.A.W)

by Sheikh Muhammad Abdul Hai Arifi


Apart from the prayers/submissions mentioned above, the life of a Muslim should be upright, simple, neat and clean in all matters relating to religion and worldly affairs e.g., in the discharge of obligations towards the family members and relatives, in earning the livelihood, in functions of joy and sorrow, in dealings with the friends, in the personal matters, in the mode of living, in sitting and walking, in eating and drinking, in the dress and the clothing, in the appearance, in the habits and the moralities, there should be reflection of purity of thought and nobility of character. Although, due to social pressure and dominating influence of the prevailing atmosphere, achievement of these ends and following these lines apparantly seems to be difficult, but if the pure and purifying life of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam), the greatest benefactor of mankind is carefully looked into, the lines of purity set forth by him are fully followed and his noble teachings are acted upon in every walk of life, then every thing would appear to be easy. Pure life is another name for regulating one’s life according to this sacred sunnah, the details of which have been embodied in this compilation under various headings with due clarity.
