AS A HUMAN AND A PROPHET (PBUH)

Knowing Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is a quintessential to accepting him, feeling closeness towards him and following his example. It is not possible to believe in, to have affection for, or to follow a person without knowing them. The Holy Quran clearly states this issue and asks the non-believers whether they deny the Prophet because they do not know him.

Knowing someone is not enough on its own. It is important that the person be known adequately and correctly. Our aim is to understand the human identity of Prophet Muhammad, not those that are connected to the prophethood. His superhuman quality is related to those things that we must accept as part of the faith. Such qualities are beyond the limits of our knowledge and comprehension, and are manifested only by prophets; it is meaningless to talk about demonstrating such qualities. But the Prophet’s human identity is that in which the divine revelation becomes concrete and we must understand this identity, learn from it and follow it.
One of the points that we must take care to understand in correctly perceiving and following Prophet Muhammad is the fact that Islam is not a religion designated for a single nation and Prophet Muhammad was not a prophet sent specifically to a single nation. The religion of Islam has messages that include universal values, it embraces local and national motifs, it considers different practices to be the natural results of a system of virtues all based on the same foundation, and it paves the way for the development of cultural wealth. Accordingly, different formats have emerged from the same universal values, bringing closeness, not polarity. Possibly the most important thing to do to separate local and cultural motifs from religious motifs when learning about and following Prophet Muhammad is to always perceive the sunnah as consisting of three dimensions, namely the reality, comprehension of the sunnah, and informing others of the sunnah without abusing the consistency of the Quran and the sunnah.
