Why the persistence and courage of Prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him, inspires me.

28 Sep

The teaching of Islaam continued in secret for three years. Then Allah commanded Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) to preach the religion of Islaam openly to his people. Obeying Allah, Muhammed, peace be upon him, called his people together from the family of Quraish and invited them to the religion of Islaam. The people of the Quraish were very angry with his teaching and began to abuse him.

Prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him, did not stop preaching Islaam although the people of Makkah, especially his uncle Abu Lahab and Abu Jahl (Amr bin Hishaam) were against his message and preaching. However, the sincere people slowly continued to accept Islaam. The poor and weak converts to Islaam, like Hazrat Bilal (R.A.) and others suffered at the hands of the Quraish. With all the hardships no one left Islaam and Prophet Muhammed, peace be upon him, did not stop his mission of Islaam.

This was something I remembered after reading after reading about the life of the Prophet, peace be upon him. It makes me very emotional when I think that we, in our times can’t keep up with the work of dawaa (calling people peacefully to our way) or are worried about people’s ignorance. Our beloved Prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him, was so courageous that, through difficult times, he put up with physical abuse and threats, but carried on spreading his message. This encourages me when I want to talk about Islam to non-Muslims, and makes me believe that I can approach them without worrying. I believe this proves that giving dawaa is something we shouldn’t think twice about.
