Fearing Allah is a positive trait that once properly settled into the heart changes one’s life considerably to be in conformity with divine injunctions. Therefore, as once said by one of the early pious predecessors, when fearing others, you flee from them, but when fearing Allah, you flee to Him.
Practically, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) perfectly embodied the true fear of Allah. His very words rightfully proclaimed: “I am the most knowing of Allah and the most fearful of Him among you.”

As the volatility between Israel and Gaza continues to transform, one constant remains: rising "collateral damage." Unrest in Israel traces back six decades but the concept of collateral damage stretches back several millennia. And while in modern times we are allegedly "more civilized," 11-month-old Omar Masharawi's funeral, three dead Israelis, and a horrifying 120 killed Palestinians, tell a different story.

There are many aspects of Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) personality that are not just admirable in and of themselves, but also exemplary because they highlight his great humility and approachability as a person, despite his high-ranking status as the last messenger of God, and as the indisputable leader of the Muslims.
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), was an extraordinary husband, a perfect father, and a unique grandfather. He was unique in every way. He treated his children and grandchildren with great compassion and never neglected to guide them to the straight path and good deeds. He loved them and treated them tenderly and showed them how to lead a humane life. He never allowed them to neglect their religious duties.
His ultimate goal was to prepare them for the Hereafter.

After several years of persecution and little success in preaching the word of God to his own people in the ancient city of Mecca, the Prophet Muhammad decided to take his message and teachings to the people of Ta'if, an agricultural city southeast of Mecca. The Prophet's Meccan persecutors sent word to their allies in advance of Muhammad's arrival in order to thwart his mission and turn the people against him.
