What is good morality against our prophet? How was our prophet muhammad good morals?
The Companions -May Allah be well-pleased with them- manifested the most perfect examples of the respect and good manners that one must show towards the Messenger of Allah -upon him blessings and peace-. In this regard, they defined their state of awe and decency when they were in the presence of the Prophet: “As if there was a bird on our head and we were afraid that it would fly away if we moved.”
The manners of the Companions towards the Messenger of Allah -upon him blessings and peace- were to such a degree that they, most of the time, considered it an indecency to even ask him a question. For this reason, they would even hope if a Bedouin from the desert would come and ask questions and thus, they would too be blessed with the conversation of the Prophet -upon him blessings and peace-.
On the other hand, to send peace and blessings whenever the name of the Messenger of Allah -upon him blessings and peace- is mentioned is one of the good manners commanded by Allah Almighty to us as Muslim nation. It is stated in the Qur’an:
“Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O you that believe! Send you blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.” (al-Ahzab, 33: 56)
“(O believers!) Deem not the summons of the Messenger among yourselves like the summons of one of you to another…” (al-Nur, 24: 63)
Ibn Abbas -May Allah be well-pleased with him- said about this verse:
“People used to address the Messenger of Allah as “O Muhammad, O Abu al-Qasim”. In order to glorify the honor of His Messenger, Allah Almighty forbade them from addressing him like that.
After the revelation of this verse, people started to address him, “O Prophet of Allah, O Messenger of Allah!” (Abu Nuaym, Dalail, I, 46)
Therefore, mentioning the Prophet -upon him blessings and peace- only by his name is contrary to the good morals of being a member of his ummah. Along with his blessed name, his lofty and holy qualities should also be pronounced. In addition, it is necessary to show good manners and courtesy towards everything that is close to the Messenger of Allah -upon him blessings and peace- .
Another of most important rule of manners for a believer is the good manners that should be shown towards his Holy Book.
