Daily routine of the prophet

source:

Athar Husain's Book "The Message of Mohammad"

On the authority of Ali, Tirmizi has recorded that the Prophet Muhammad (salAllaahu 'alayhi wassallam) had carefully apportioned his time according to the demands on him for

1. offering worship to Allah

2. public affairs, and

3. personal matters.

After the early morning prayers he would remain sitting in the mosque reciting praises of Allah till the sun rose and more people collected. He would then preach to them. After the sermons were over, he would talk genially with the people, enquire about their welfare and even exchange jokes with them. Taxes and revenues were also disrtibuted at this time (Muslim, Sahih Muslim Tirmizi, Sunan Tirmizi). He would then offer chaste prayers and go home and get busy with household work (Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmizi). He would again return to the mosque for the mid-day and afternoon prayers, listen to the problems of the people and give solace and guidance to them. After the afternoon prayers, he would visit each of his wives and, after the evening prayers, his wives would collect at one place and he would have his dinner (Muslim, Sahih Muslim). After the night prayers, he would recite some suras of the Quran and before going to bed would pray:


"O Allah, I die and live with thy name on my lips."

On getting up he would say,

"All praise to Allah Who has given me life after death and towards Whom is the return."

He used to brush his teeth five times a day, before each of the daily prayers. After midnight, he used to get up for the tahajjud prayers which he never missed even once in his life (Bukhari, Sahih Bukhari). He was not fastidious about his bed: sometimes he slept on his cot, sometimes on a skin or ordinary matress, and sometimes on the ground (Zarqani).

On friday he used to give sermons after the weekly "Jumma" prayers. He was not annoyed if anyone interrupted him during the sermons for anything. It is stated that once, while he was delivering his sermon, a bedouin approached him and said, "O messenger of Allah, I am a traveler and am ignorant of my religion." The prophet (salAllaahu 'alayhi wassallam) got down from the pulpit, explained the salient features of Islam to him and then resumed the sermon (Tirmizi, Sunan Tirmizi).



On another occasion his grandson Husain, still a child, came tumbling to him while he was delivering a sermon. He descended and took him in his lap and then continued the sermon (Ibid).

"Muhammad is a man, but not like all men. He is as a ruby among stones."

The Prophet (saas) was always considerate and courteous

Some of those who surrounded the Prophet (saas) were less than well-mannered and cultured. It can be seen from a number of verses that they could not understand how thoughtless they were and that their behavior could make others uncomfortable. For instance, verses speak of people entering houses by the back instead of the front, arriving when the Prophet (saas) was dining, or else taking up his time by talking for a long time. The Prophet Muhammad (saas), on the other hand, was very thoughtful, courteous, patient and civilized, and treated such people nevertheless with the greatest tolerance. Also, in the most pleasant manner, he warned those around him against behavior that would make others uncomfortable, and thus won their sympathy, teaching them through patience and perseverence. That comportment made him an excellent example for all believers.

Our Lord, Who possesses infinite love and compassion, assisted the Prophet (saas) in this matter and supported him with the verses, one of which says:


You who believe! Do not go into the Prophet's rooms except when you are invited to come and eat. Do not wait there while the food is being cooked. However, when you are called, go in, and when you have eaten, disperse, not remaining there to chat with one another. Doing that causes annoyance to the Prophet though he is too reticent to tell you so. But Allah is not reticent with the truth, (Surat al-Ahzab: 53)

Accounts by his companions give many examples of the Prophet (saas)'s courteous and considerate behavior. Because of his being both a Messenger of Allah and a head of state, the Prophet (saas) was in constant contact with people from all walks of life, from the wealthy leaders of states and tribes to poor, defenceless women and orphans. He was able to communicate with and win the hearts of people whose social status, ways of life and customs were very different from one another, he exhibited understanding, patience and a desirable attitude.

As can be seen from incidents recounted by those around him, the Prophet (saas) was most kind, above reproach, amiable and thoughtful. He practiced the rules of courtesy and politeness in the best and most ideal way throughout his entire life.
Aisha (r.a.) described the exquisite morality she saw in the Prophet (saas) in these terms:

"The Prophet (saas)'s nature was the Qur'an". 28

Anas bin Malik (ra), who was raised in the Prophet (saas)'s household and served him for many years, spoke of his matchless kindness:

"Allah's Messenger (saas) that when he shook hands with anyone he did not withdraw his hands till the other man withdrew his. Similarly, he did not turn away his face from anyone till that man turned his face to the other side. And he was never seen to put forward his knees in front of one with whom he was sitting."29
"Ibn 'Umar reported that Allah's Messenger (saas) changed the name of Asiya (Disobedient) and said: 'You are Jamila (i.e.good and handsome)'."30

"Whenever one spoke to him the other would keep quiet and listen till he would finish."31

"Anas bin Malik (ra) says: 'I remained in the service of the Rasulullah (saas) for ten years. He never once told me 'Oof.' When I did something, he never asked me why did you do so? When I did not do a certain task, he never asked me why I did not do it'."32

The Prophet (saas) taught thousands of people during his life, and was a means by which those who knew nothing of religion and morality came to be morally superior, well-behaved, thoughtful and self-sacrificing. Even after his death, the Prophet (saas) is still teaching by means of his words, attitudes and behavior, and is a most noble guide and teacher.

kindly mention the qualities that make Muhammed the wonderful person he was.
Re: Mohammed(s.a.w.), What A Man! by Sweetnecta: 2:20am On Jun 01, 2011
he was firm in his mission. he didn't waver like the biblical jesus who denied he was a king when he was in the front of a mere emperor.

he did not blame God Who sent him in time of calamity like biblical jesus who blamed God as in 'why has thou forsaken me?' since only disbeliever like satan is forsaken by God. abi you dexmond want God to forsaken you like the biblical jesus? i know you no fit sha.

he was firm in resolve knowing that his Lord God is One, unlike biblical jesus who couldn't come out straight like a straight shooter, a quality you will expect of prophet, hence resorting into hideous gimmick of parables.

ol boy dexmond; you have enough already or you want more rain on your parade?
Re: Mohammed(s.a.w.), What A Man! by dexmond: 3:07am On Jun 01, 2011
@Sweetnecta

Yes Mohammed was firm in his mission. That those not add or remove anything. The Devil too is firm in his mission of ensuring that many people die without Christ.


he did not blame God Who sent him in time of calamity like biblical jesus who blamed God as in 'why has thou forsaken me?' since only disbeliever like satan is forsaken by God. abi you dexmond want God to forsaken you like the biblical jesus? i know you no fit sha.

I do know that he tried to commit suicide on a number of occasion just as it is happening in our time. Suicide bombers are imitating their leader.

Sahih Bukhari 9:87:111

, But after a few days Waraqa died and the Divine Inspiration was also paused for a while and the Prophet (Mohammad) became so sad as we have heard that he intended several times to throw himself from the tops of high mountains and every time he went up the top of a mountain in order to throw himself down, Gabriel would appear before him and say, "O Muhammad! You are indeed Allah's Apostle in truth" whereupon his heart would become quiet and he would calm down and would return home. And whenever the period of the coming of the inspiration used to become long, he would do as before, but when he used to reach the top of a mountain, Gabriel would appear before him and say to him what he had said before.

he was firm in resolve knowing that his Lord God is One, unlike biblical jesus who couldn't come out straight like a straight shooter, a quality you will expect of prophet, hence resorting into hideous gimmick of parables.


Yea, he was firm to know that God is one, but he did not know that God can take any form he chooses for he has power to do all things. Muhammed did not know that God could appear in the fire, He could come to you like a beggar in other to test your faith, he could come to you as a stranger, He could take the form of man in the person of Jesus to teach the highest standard of morality ever known to the human.

dexmond, dexmond, dexmond. how many times did i call you? God spoke through the burning bush, not appearing there. even you, your voice could be heard over a loud speaker, and you may not even be 100 yards near the place mr x heard your voice. what highest standard of morality taught when everything; correction, teaching, leading and acknowledgement was left by jesus to the 'another comforter'? God does not appear as a begger, you, you [#@&*_+], because even the bible says no eyes have seen God at anytime. [dexmond is joking too much].

A model which can serve as a standard for every class of the people acting under different circumstances and states of human emotions will be found in the life of Muhammad (saw). If you are rich, there is the example of the tradesman of Makkah and the master of Bahrain’s treasures; if you are poor, you can follow the internee of Shuy’ba Abi Talib and the émigré of Madinah; if you are a king, watch the actions of the ruler of Arabia; if you are a vassal, look at the man enduring hardships imposed by the Quraish of Makkah; if you area a conqueror, look at the victor of Badr and Hunayn; if you have suffered a defeat, take a lesson from the one discomfited at Uhud; if you are a teacher, learn from the holy mentor of the school of Suffah; if you are a student, look at the learner who sat before Gabriel; if you are a sermoner, direct your eyes to the discourser delivering sermons in the mosque at Madinah; if you are charged to preach the gospel of truth and mercy to your persecutors, observe the helpless preacher explaining the message of Allah to the pagans of Makkah; if you have brought your enemy to his knees, look at the conqueror of Makkah; if you want to administer your lands and properties, discover how the land and groves of Bani al-Nadir, Khaibar and Fadak were managed; if you are an orphan, do not forget the child of Aminah and Abd-Allah left to the tender mercy of Halimah; if you are young, see the character of Makkah’s shepherd; if you have a travelling business, cast a glance at the leader of the caravan under way to Basra; if you are a judge or arbiter, look at the umpire entering the holy sanctuary before the peep of dawn and installing Hajr-ul-Aswad in the Ka’bah, or the justice of peace in whose eyes the poor and the rich were alike; if you are a husband, study the behavior of the husband of Khadijah and Aisha; if you are a father, go through the biography of Fatima’s father and grandfather of Hassan and Hussain; in short, whoever and whatever you may be, you would find a shining example in the life of the holy Prophet (saw) to illuminate your behavior. He is the only beacon of light and guidance for every seeker after truth. If you have the life of the Prophet of Islam before you, you can find examples of all the prophets, Noah and Abraham, Job and Jonah, Moses and Jesus. If the life and character of each prophet of Allah were deemed to be a shop selling the wares of one commodity, that of Muhammad (saw) would verily be a variety store where goods of every description can be had to suit the tastes and needs of all.

@dexmond; ^^^^^ the above has defeated your sorry effort to belittle the master of Jesus in prophetic mission; Muhammad [as]. no wonder 'another comforter' was left to perfect what Jesus of the bible had no ability to accomplish.

The Prophet could relate

Many times we may fall into thinking that Allah doesn’t love us because of the trials that we are put through, but as a mercy, Allah has sent us an example that we can emulate and an opportunity for us to relate to the Prophet ﷺ on many different levels through our trials. As we go through the life of the Prophet ﷺ and see the many hardships he endured we can begin to connect to him on a more personal level. We can see that he was human: when cut he would bleed, when put in difficult situations he would feel emotional pain – but regardless, he continued to strive in the way of Allah and kept his eye on the ultimate goal, pleasing Allah and entering Jannah

The Prophet’s ﷺ life began with a hefty trial. He entered into the world as an orphan. Not only is this hard in the general sense being that the lack of a father could affect his confidence and would undoubtedly effect the way he lived, but it was even more difficult because of the culture he was born into. He entered into a culture where lineage meant everything and orphans were dishonored. For anyone who started off life in a manner that was culturally unacceptable – be it a disability or a lineage issue – take comfort in the fact that our beloved ﷺ endured the same tribulations as you, and he overcame it by the will of Allah.

Without a father, our Prophet ﷺ only had his mother cling to. When he developed an emotional connection to her, and was old enough to remember his mother clearly, he then lost her to death as well. Imagine the emotional pain he must have felt – having already grown up without ever having contact with his own father, his mother was now gone as well. But he persevered and carried on with life. The other strong parental connection he made was with his grandfather. His grandfather loved him dearly and Prophet Mohammed ﷺ looked to him as a father figure. However, not long after his mother’s death, his grandfather passed away as well.

Have you ever lost a parent or even both parents? The Prophet ﷺ could relate.
Re: Mohammed(s.a.w.), What A Man! by tbaba1234: 4:37am On Jun 14, 2011
Prophet Mohamed ﷺ continued to resiliently carry on. After the death of his grandfather, he went to live with uncle Abu Taalib and built a strong relationship with him that would be a vital aid to him in his years of calling to Islam.

When the Prophet ﷺ received the message and began to preach, he was faced with another great trial. He was ridiculed, taunted, and accused of being a mad man by many of his community members. These were people whom he once happily interacted with, shared joyous moments with, and simply lived life with.

Have you ever lost a child or been given the news that you will not be able to have children? The Prophet ﷺ could relate.


At the time of the Prophet ﷺ, having male children was seen to be essential. Having daughters was a waste of money and sometimes even a shame. Men disliked it so much that they would take their young daughters and bury them alive, hoping that the next child their wife would bear would be a son. In the midst of all this, the Prophet ﷺ had no sons that lived passed childhood. His community had no sympathy towards him and would call him Abtaar (cut off). Imagine having lost a son who meant the world to you and not only having to put up with the internal grief of the loss, but also the community stigma and hurtful words. But still, he remained steadfast.

Have you, or someone you are close to, ever been accused of something you did not do? Has your name been blotched by false rumors and untruthful tongues? The Prophet ﷺ could relate.
Re: Mohammed(s.a.w.), What A Man! by tbaba1234: 4:41am On Jun 14, 2011
While the Prophet ﷺ was married to our Mother, Aisha radi Allahu ‘anha (may Allah be pleased with her), a heart-shaking occurrence took place. A man whom the father of Aisha supported and helped on a regular basis accused our beloved mother of a great sin and a great shame. Imagine, one of the most beloved people to you is accused of being unfaithful. Rumors spread about her, feelings were hurt, and hearts were shattered. Eventually her innocence was proven by a direct revelation from Allah, the most high, and her honor restored.

Have you had someone that you loved deeply been accused falsely? The Prophet ﷺ could relate.

Another great sadness in the life of the Prophet Mohammed ﷺ was the death of his beloved Uncle. It was not just the death of the Prophet’s uncle that was saddening, but the fact that this man that was so close to the Prophet ﷺ, passed away without accepting Islam and turning to Allah in full submission. The Prophet ﷺ tried hard to get him to accept Islam, but his pride and attachment to his forefather’s religion did not allow him to utter the words of acceptance before he returned to Allah.

Have you ever been turned away from those whom you love while only trying to benefit them? The Prophet ﷺ could relate.
Re: Mohammed(s.a.w.), What A Man! by tbaba1234: 4:42am On Jun 14, 2011
Humiliation, kicking out, physical hurt, verbal taunts, and so many other pains were inflicted upon the Prophet ﷺ throughout his life, making him a person we can relate to in almost every trial of our life. The above are just glimpses of the pains he felt in his life, yet he was always content, always at peace. His peace was internal, and bestowed upon him by As-Salam, the One who is peace and He who bestows peace. Often times we think, ‘I’ve been through so much – no one understands, no one can help me.’ Think again. The Prophet ﷺ went through so much in his life and continued to hold strong. He can relate to the pain and the heartbreak you are going through, he knew where to turn for help. He turned to Allah the most high. Take comfort in the fact that the Prophet ﷺ can relate to you. Follow his lead and turn to the only One who can bring everlasting peace, and have faith in the fact that this alone will relieve your pain.
