4 times the Prophet Muhammad (saw) Showed Us He is Just as Human as We AreSome of the time it's difficult to accept that somebody as exceptional according to Allah (S) and as dear to our souls as Muslims really was a human with his own arrangement of blemishes and qualities, much the same as you and me. Examining the life of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) through portrayals of people around him and perusing his own records gives us that his life, while inexplicable and guided by divine mediation, was likewise loaded up with incalculable hardships, distress and misery just as satisfaction and love; much like a large number of us.
One of the principle things that has permitted me to feel such a solid association with and colossal love for him is the way that he was so relatable. We regularly put prophets and envoys on such a high platform, that we overlook Allah (S) made them human, much the same as us. There are such huge numbers of exercises learned through the character and tolerance of our dearest Prophet Muhammad (saw) that we would all be able to apply to our everyday.
A Loving Husband
Of the numerous caps the Prophet Muhammad (saw) needed to wear all through his lifetime, one of the most huge was his job as a spouse. There are innumerable portrayals and records on how his relationship with his spouses was typified with adoration, delicacy and benevolence. We as a whole know the scandalous story of the Prophet Muhammad (saw) and his better half Aisha (rah) hustling together, which is a basic case of how fun loving he was with his significant other.
Aisha revealed: She was with the Prophet (saw) while on an excursion. Aisha stated, "I dashed him by walking and I surpassed him, however when I put on some weight, I hustled him again and he beat me. The Prophet stated: This is for that race."
Aisha (rah) has likewise portrayed that the Prophet (saw) would give her epithets and call her by them. Pause for a minute to truly absorb that. The Prophet calling his significant other by an extraordinary name he selected only for her. How sweet is that?! Simply consider how unique you feel when your own companion or adored one calls you by your moniker they handpicked for you. There's something genuine thus entirely relatable about the way that the Prophet used to do this very thing – that we do with our own life partners – with his significant other.
"O 'A'ish, this is Gabriel saying harmony arrive." She answered: "And may harmony and Allah's leniency and endowments arrive. You see what I don't." (Al-Bukhari)
Considerably after his first spouse, Khadijah, died, the Prophet kept on indicating his affection for her. For instance, he made a point to keep close relations with those that were of high repute to Khadijah to keep any hint of physical association with her.
Anas ibn Malik announced: When the Prophet, harmony and gifts arrive, was given something, he would state, "Go to such individual, for they were a companion of Khadijah. Go to the place of such individual, for they were adored by Khadijah."

He Made Errors
Each time I read Surah Abasa (Chapter 80 of the Quran) I am helped to remember the humanness of the Prophet Muhammad (saw), and that even he had blemishes and human propensities. The surah begins by portraying the episode in which the Prophet was in the organization of the most elevated individuals from the clan of Quraish, addressing them about Islam with the expectation that they would grasp the religion.
While amidst his discourse, a visually impaired man, who was really one of the devotees and a sahabi (partner of the Prophet), requested that the Prophet show him from the information that was given to him by Allah (S). At that time, the Prophet asked the sahabi to hold up until he was finished tending to the head of Quraish while additionally glaring even with the visually impaired man because of his interference.
It's difficult to accept that somebody as respectable and of high height as our darling Muhammad (saw) would accomplish something like this, yet to realize that he did is likewise to some degree consoling to me by and by. It makes the character of the Prophet significantly more human and gives me that he is in fact simply a Prophet and Messenger of the celestial, not simply the perfect. He was fit for committing errors and gaining from them.
He Loved Children
There are innumerable records and portrayals on the amount Prophet Muhammad (saw) adored youngsters and showed restraint toward them. While a few people in our networks mock or become annoyed with youngsters who are lively in the mosque, the Prophet was continually welcoming and even permitted them to intrude on his supplications.
It was described by Abu Qutaadah (RAH), "I saw the Messenger of Allah (saw) driving the individuals in supplication, with Umamah bint Abi Al-'Aas on his shoulders. At the point when he bowed he would put her down and when he stood up from prostrating he would get her once more."
There is something to be found out about being tolerant with kids and giving them love, graciousness and love, even while in a demonstration of love. In another record, the Prophet even hung tight for one of his grandkids to get done with playing before he proceeded with his salah.
It was described from AbdulAllaah ibn Shaddaad that his dad stated, "The Messenger of Allah (SAW) came out to us for one of the night supplications (Maghrib or 'Isha'), conveying Hasan or Husayn. The Messenger of Allah (SAW) approached, put the kid down and said Takbeer ("Allahu akbar") to begin the petition. At that point he prostrated during the petition and his surrender went on for quite a while. My dad stated: I raised my head and saw the kid on the rear of the Messenger of Allah (saw), so I returned to my surrender. At the point when the Messenger of Allah (saw) wrapped up, the individuals said to him: 'O Messenger of Allah, during your supplication you prostrated and it required some investment, until we imagined that something had occurred, or that you were getting Revelation.' He stated, 'Nothing occurred, yet my child was riding on my back and I would not like to rush him up until he had enough.'" (Sahih al-Nasa'i, 1093).

Its an obvious fact that the Prophet Muhammad (saw) endured extraordinary numerous misfortunes in the course of his life. Prior to his own introduction to the world, he had just lost his dad. He lost his mom at the youthful age of six. He lost his emotionally supportive network – his dear spouse Khadijah and uncle Abu Talib – around the same time. It didn't stop there; he likewise lost six of his seven youngsters at youthful ages.
In the narrative of the demise of his child Ibrahim, we are helped to remember how the sidekicks of the Prophet were stunned to see him grieve the loss of his child. This gives me that even the sahabah, who interfaced with him up close and personal, would overlook that by the day's end, Muhammad (saw) was likewise human and communicated indistinguishable feelings from any other person.
At the point when the Prophet saw Ibrahim, at just year and a half old enough, take his final gasps in his own arms, he began to cry.
Abdul Rahman container Auf stated, "O Allah's Messenger (SAW), even you are sobbing!" The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) stated, "O Ibn Auf, this is kindness". He kept on crying and stated, "The eyes are crying tears and the heart is lamented, and we won't state with the exception of what satisfies our Lord; inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon (To Allah (S) we have a place, and to Him we will return).
Through these models alone, I am helped to remember exactly how – amidst all that is unprecedented – conventional our Prophet truly was. There are innumerable hadith on his life that demonstrate to us that he was to be sure a man sent to hand-off the message of Allah (S); not a performer or child of God, yet a human simply like you and me. The more I read about the life of the Prophet and study his character/attributes and his experiences with everyone around him; the more I wind up become fonder of him. I am ready to associate with him on a more profound, and increasingly close to home level.
I ask Allah (S) to make you and I of the individuals who will join the Prophet Muhammad (found) in the most elevated levels of jannah (heaven).
