Morals and Attributes of Muhammad (PBUH)
First: His Morals
After the death of his paternal uncle Abu Talib, Allah’s Prophet lived at thehouse of his paternal grandfather, Abdul Muttalib who was the leader of Makkah. There, Allah’s Prophet had the opportunity to acquire wisdom andsound thinking as well as get acquainted with surrounding issues,problems and disputes. He had first hand experience of different people,the status of Arab tribes, communities and alliances. Besides, he activelyparticipated in all this: he was a member of 
 Al Fudhool
(lit. Alliance of Virtue) that supported the wronged and resisted any aspect of oppression;he was a just judge in many disputes among tribes and families. Allah’sProphet was the best among his community in terms of magnanimity,morals, forbearance, truthfulness, impeachable disposition, chastity, andfulfilment. In short, he was, as described by his wife Khadijah (may Allahbe pleased with her), a person who kept good relations with his kith andkin, helped the poor and the destitute, served his guests generously andassisted the deserving calamity-afflicted ones. (1)
1) Excellence in morals
Orientlist Arthur Gilman says: “Historians agreed that Muhammad – peaceand blessings be upon him- was distinguished among his tribe because of his straight morals: truthfulness, honesty, generosity, good merits, andmodesty. He never drank alcohols and never attended a festival orcelebration dedicated to idols.” (2)
2) Not even a blemish
Karl Broklman says: “Muhammad’s life did not have even one blemish.During his boyhood and adulthood, he was above suspicions in which hiscompanions immersed.” (3)
3) Noble-minded thinker
 Thomas Carlyle indicates that: “It was noted that Muhammad – peace andblessings be upon him- was a thoughtful youth; his companions used todescribe him as “the honest” (
 Al Ameen
) – the man of truthfulness andfulfilment. He was truthful in his actions, sayings, and thoughts. Hiscompanions realized that he was so wise. I know also that he was long insilence and did not speak without cause. Once he spoke, his words werefull of wisdom. During his life, he was a man of principle, determination,insightful, and of consecutive sorrows. He was known of being generous,pious, compassionate, Allah-fearing, virtuous, proud, hard working, andstraightforward. At the same time, he was affable, well disposed, eversmiling, and cheerful. There was always a bright smile over his face, asmile that tells about a pure heart. Muhammad – peace and blessings beupon him- was intelligent and magnanimous, intuitively great and divinelytaught. He thus performed his greatest task in the middle of the barrendesert.” (4)
4) The most magnanimous
Belgian scholar Alfred Alfanz writes about the morals of Allah’s ProphetMuhammad – peace and blessings be upon him: “Muhammad – peace andblessings be upon him – grew up on morals. He was the best inmagnanimity, patience and honesty. He was the best to talk and the mosttruthful. He was far away from obscenity so that he was known among hispeople by the epithet “
 Al Ameen.
” These credentials urged the wealthyKhadijah bint Khuwaylid to ask him to be among the members of hercommercial journey to Syria with her servant Maisrah. He earned for her alot of money and Maisrah came back and told her about the miracles hesaw. She proposed to him through a relative. She was forty years old andtwice widowed. Allah’s Prophet gave her twenty
as her dowry. Hewas twenty-five. He lived with her until she died.” (5)
5) People’s respect for him
Russian scholar Arlinov talked about the Prophet of mercy: “He wasfamous of being good-tempered, well-disposed, modesty, and affability.Muhammad spent forty years among people in peace and tranquillity. Allhis relatives loved him dearly and all his acquaintances did respect himbecause of his sound principles, unique morals, honour, and uprightness.”(6)
6) Sayings of his contemporaries
 The above was some of the opinions of fair western scholars regarding themorals of Muhammad – peace and blessings be upon him. What about hisCompanions and contemporaries who accompanied him?Ali Ibn Abi Talib said:“Allah’s Prophet would guard his tongue from that which did not concernhim. He would attract them (the people) and not repel them. He wouldennoble the noble of the people and charge them with their affairs. He waswary of the people and guarded himself against them but withoutdepriving them a warm smile or fitting conduct. He would inquire after hiscompanions and would ask the people about their affairs. He wouldencourage that which was good and strengthen it, and he woulddiscourage that which was evil and undermine it. He was balanced andconsistent. He would never be neglectful that they would not learn neglectand grow indifferent. He had a provision for every occasion and he neverfell short of justice nor exceeded it. The closest people to him were themost comprehensive in advice. The highest of them in stature with himwas the best among them in looking after the people and assisting them.”(7)“He was ever smiling, gentle in manners, soft in nature. He was notsevere, harsh-hearted, loud at marketplaces, abusive, or encomiast. He
