“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it”
No cartoon or comic can blemish the noble Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). He is dear to millions of Muslims around the world who strive to emulate his perfect example in every way. He was a man of beauty and perfection, one of his companions, Hassaan bin Thaabit (may Allah be pleased with him) describes him with the following couplets:
My eyes have never seen anyone more perfect than you. No woman has given birth to anyone more handsome than you. You have been created free from all defects.As if you were created the way you wished”
Here are 5 narrations from the companions of the Prophet describing his beauty:
1. Moulded in silver
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) says: “The messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was so clean, clear, beautiful and handsome, as though his body was covered and moulded in silver. His hair was slightly curled.”
2. More beautiful than the full moon
It is related from Jabir (may Allah be pleased with him) that he said: “I once saw the messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) on the night of a full moon. On that night he wore red (striped) clothing. At times I looked at the full moon and at times at the messenger of Allah. Ultimately I came to the conclusion that the messenger of Allah was more handsome, beautiful and more radiant than the full moon.”
3. Perfect in every way
Anas bin Malik (may Allah be pleased with him) reports: “The messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was neither tall nor was he short. In complexion, he was he was neither very white like lime, nor very dark, nor brown which results in darkness (he was illuminant, more luminous than even the full-moon on the 14th night).
4. ‘I never saw anyone more handsome than him’
Baraa bin Aazib (may Allah be pleased with him) relates that: “The messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was a man of a medium build, (slightly tall); he had broad shoulders; he had dense hair which reached his ear-lobes; he wore a red striped lower garment and a shawl. I never saw anybody or anything more handsome than him”
5. ‘As if the Sun shone from his face’
Abu Hurairah (may Allah be pleased with him) says, “I did not see anyone more handsome as the messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). It was as if the brightness of the sun had shone from his auspicious face. I did not see anyone walk faster than him, as if the earth folded for him. A few moments ago he would be here, and then there. We found it difficult to keep pace when we walked with him, and he walked at his normal pace.”
The above narrations have been mentioned in the Shama’il of Imam Tirmidhi

22nd Jumadi-ul-Thani , 1437 Hijri
This approx on: Friday 1st April or Saturday 2nd April 2016
(Depending on Lunar date of your country).
On 22nd day of this Lunar Month in Ajmer Sharif, highly inspiring programme of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (Radi Allah Unho) is celebrated at a specific demise at the shrine in Ajmer Sharif.
Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (radi Allahu anhu’s) real name was Abdullah, and he was given the title of “As Siddique” or”Testifier to the Truth.” His father, ‘Uthman, was known as Abu Quhafah and his mother, Salma, was known as Ummul Khair. He was two and a half years younger than the blessed and final Prophet Sayyiduna Rasulullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam).
Abu Bakr (R.A.) the First Among Men to Enter Islam.
Abu Bakr (R.A) were always a very close Companion of the Holy Prophet, he knew them better than any other man. He knew how honest and upright the Prophet was. Such knowledge of the Prophet made Abu Bakr (R.A) be the first man to follow the Message of Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam. He was indeed the first adult male to accept Islam.
The Holy Prophet told Abu Bakr (R.A) what had happened at Mount Hira’, he told him that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala has revealed to him and made him His Messenger.
When Abu Bakr (R.A) heard this from the prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, he did not stop to think, he at once became a Muslim. He submitted to Islam with such determination that once the Holy Prophet himself remarked, “I called people to Islam, everybody thought over it, at least for a while, but this was not the case with Abu Bakr (R.A), the moment I put Islam before him, he accepted it without any hesitation”. He was titled As-Siddiq by the Prophet because his faith was too strong to be shaken by anything.
In fact, Abu Bakr (R.A) was more than a great believer, as soon as he became a Muslim, he immediately began to preach Islam to others. Among those who accepted Abu Bakr’s invitation to Islam were; Uthman, Zubair, Talha, Abdul Rahman bin Auf, Saadi bin Waqqas and others who later became the pillars of Islam.
Abu Bakr’s love of the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was so great that he was willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of protecting and comforting the Prophet saw.
Such love and sacrifice were demonstrated when one day the Holy Prophet was saying his prayers in the Ka’ba, while some of the chiefs of Mecca were sitting in the court yard of the Ka’ba. Seeing the Prophet praying, ‘Uqbah bin Abi Mu’eet took a long piece of cloths and put it around the Prophet’s neck and twisted it hard in an attempt to strangle the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam to death. At that moment Abu Bakr (R.A) happened to pass by from a distance, he saw ‘Uqbah trying to strangle the Prophet to death. Immediately Abu Bakr ran to the help of the Prophet, he pushed ‘Uqbah aside and took the cloth from around the Prophet’s neck. Thereupon the enemies of Islâm came down upon Abu Bakr and beat him , although Abu Bakr with faith like a rock did not care for his own suffering, he was glad that he was able to save the Prophet of Allah, even at the risk of his own life.
Abu Bakr with the wealth he had, also had a major role in freeing some of the Muslim slaves, who were barbarically tortured by their heartless Mushrik masters to give up the Faith and return to their masters’ beliefs. The heartless monsters tried all kinds of torture: they made them lie all naked on the burning desert sand, putting big stones on their chest, as well as other kinds of torture. Here Abu Bakr’s wealth came to the rescue, as he bought the poor helpless slaves from their inhuman masters and set them free, Bilal Al-Habashi (R.A), the slave of Umayya bin Khalaf, was among those who were set free by Abu Bakr. Bilal(R.A) became afterwards the Mu’azzin at the Prophet’s mosque.
Khulafa-e-Rashideen (R.A) The Companions of the Beloved Prophet (S.A.W) hold the highest status in all His (S.A.W)’s Ummah.
It is the belief That Great Caliphs (Khulafa-e-Rashideen (R.A) are superior to all other Sahabah Ikraam.
Khulafa-e-Rashideen means “The Rightly Guided”. They truly followed in the foot steps of Our Prophet (S.A.W) and became the successors after Him (S.A.W).
The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) once said “Caliphate shall last for 30 years after me, and thereafter Kingship will be established”.
The Four main Caliphs (In Order of Caliphate) were: Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (R.A) (For a period of about 2 years). Hazrat Umar-e-Farooque (R.A) (For a period of about 10 years). Hazrat Usman-e-Ghani (R.A) (For a period of about 12 years). Hazrat Moula Ali Murtaza (R.A).(For a period of about 6 years). Hazrat Imaam Hasan (R.A) (For a period of about 6 months , After Hazrat Ali (R.A)). The Four main Caliphs (In Order of Caliphate) were:
