Allah the Almighty has appointed the Prophet Muhammad as His last and final messenger. He is Rahmatul Lil-`Aalamin (a great mercy for all worlds). I have studied his Seerah or his whole biography. I completed my Ph.D. degree in comparative studies in the world religions in London, UK. In the whole history of Islam or in his entire biography, there is no single battle where he was the initiator or first in attack or offence. All the fights that were fought by him were in defense. He always tried to avoid the battles and to spread the peace and tolerance.

Sikhism is a young monotheistic religion of India initiated by Guru Nanak(1469 – 1539).

Fath Makkah (Conquest of Makkah)

I have studied his whole life, including Fath Makkah (Conquest of Makkah). On the occasion of Fath Makkah, he appeared with a slave to the people. He remained always humble with all the power he had and with all the authority he possessed even when he became victorious and when his opponents who had oppressed him and insulted him were hiding from him out of fear. Those people were anxious and thoughtful: What will happen to us now? The Prophet has entered Makkah as a triumphant; the people were scared and crying. They were really worried: His holiness, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has arrived and now he is accompanied by a large number of his followers.
The opponents of the Prophet were hiding out of fear, (ten thousand companions were with him) but the Prophet (peace be upon him) announced: “I forgave you all.” When the people saw his forgiveness and his tolerance, they began accepting Islam crowds after crowds. This event shows his mercy.

A Jew’s Funeral and the Prophet

In addition, there was funeral procession for a Jew, when it passed by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) he stood for him in respect, the companions informed that the funeral belonged to a Jew or non-Muslim, then the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: isn’t it a human being? This is the message of humanity that we learn from his life.

The anger of the Prophet on burning the Ant’s Houses

This is the merciful Prophet (peace be upon him) who became restless and nervous when some houses of ants were burnt by some people, and he expressed his anger saying: Why are you burning the ants?

His Forgiveness for a person who urinated in the Mosque

Once a person urinated in his Masjid, the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) became angry and irritated, however, the Prophet (peace be upon him) told them: “Please, keep calm, and do not be angry. The person is strange and does not know anything about the religion.”
After that the Prophet (peace be upon him) advised the Bedouin with love and mercy and ordered his companions to wash the urine with a bucket of water. He avoided even to disturb him during his urination and asked his companions as well not to disturb him.
Yes, it is the biography of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

Favors of the Prophet Muhammad on Muslims

I am sad, and what saddens me the most is the failure of Muslims in conveying the true biography of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). I have a complaint about Muslims that I want to express here. I would like to say: the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) saved you from idol-worship, he kept you away from paganism and guided you to Allah the Almighty. The Prophet Muhammad between Allah the Almighty and people is like a bridge, whoever wants to get closer to the Lord, he has to follow the footsteps of the Prophet (peace be upon him).
Islam has both aspects: the belief in the Oneness of Allah the Almighty and the firm belief in the truthfulness of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Whoever does not believe in the Prophet Muhammad is not a Muslim. The Prophet Muhammad has helped you to be connected with Allah the Almighty.

The intercession of the Prophet Muhammad on the Day of Judgment

Furthermore, on the Day of Judgment, the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) will intercede for you to Allah the Almighty.
4. maliki yau-mid-din
5. iyyaka na’ budu wa iyyaka nasta`in
6. ihdina as-sirata-l mustaqim
7. Sirata-lladhini an`amta `alaihim,
ghairi-l maghdhubi `alaihim,
wa la-Dhdhaln.
(Sovereign of the Day of Recompense. It is You we worship and You we ask for help. Guide us to the straight path -The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.)
This is Al-Hamd Shareef or the blessed Surat Al-Fatihah that mentions the Day of Judgment. On the Day of Recompense, the Muslims will be honored with the intercession of the Prophet Muhammad to Allah the Almighty. He will ask for the forgiveness of the sins of the Muslims. The Muslims were honored with such a great blessing for doing nothing but only for free.
Sacrifices of the Prophet Muhammad for Islam
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) sacrificed many of his family members in order to protect Islam. He accepted the martyrdom of his dears and nears.

Failure of Muslims in Spreading the True Biography of the Prophet Muhammad

My complaint of the Muslims is about their failure in conveying his true biography to the world. How great your prophet is! And how lofty his career is! Why have you failed in conveying his great biography to every house in the world? What have the Muslims done? Why do they not go to every house to tell his biography? Why this restlessness in every house in the world?
Today, there is no need of missiles, no need of any atom-bomb, and no need of neutron. Rather, today we need his biography, we need from Muslims to move to every house and convey his message. Thus, the whole world can turn into a garden of peace.
The host: please, Sardar ji, stand, let us hug. Please, Sardar ji, stand, let us hug. Well-done! Sardar ji. Really, wonderful! Excellent, Sardar ji!
Sardar Ji has presented the essence of the message, no, question, no if, and no but. The message is convincing, why did you not explore his message? How wonderful! No any other message, yes, the message of Islam.
