Salawat to Rasulullah

Masjid Nabawi in Medina. The green dome rest over Muhammad S.A.W.’s tomb

Muhammad Bin Abdullah was born to the Hashimite clan of the Quraisy tribe in Mecca, Arabian subcontinent this day, in 570AD. He was an exemplary child who grew into an honest business manager and eventually an entrepreneur.

He grew in the times where Meccans were idol worshipping barbarians and made money from the pilgrims that have come to the city. Idols erected around the Ka’aba which was build by prophet Ibrahim A.S.

In search of his own answers to the greatness of God Al Mighty the Maker of universe, Muhammad started to isolate himself in Hira’ cave on a mount An Nur, 2 miles outside Mecca. At the age of forty, during on of the nights Muhammad was in self isolation Archangel Gabriel appeared and forced him to recite the first Quranic verses of Surah 96 Iqra’.

Muhammad S.A.W. became the last prophet that night. Bit by bit, words of Allah S.W.T. in 6,666 verses in 114 surah (books) to mankind were presented through Muhammad S.A.W. in the medium of Al Quran. Muhammad S.A.W. also taught religion of Allah S.W.T. for 23 years via his own words, articulations, examples and actions, also known as hadith and sunnah.

Many of the commands of  Allah S.W.T. mentioned in the Al Quran were articulated by examples by Muhammad S.A.W. This include prayers.

Muhammad S.A.W. was brought to Al Aqsa mosque and to the heavens to meet Allah S.W.T. in an incident known as Isra’s Mikraj on the night 27 Rejab on the twelve year of his prophethood. He flown on the Buraq accompanied by Archangel Gabriel, brought across all seven level of heavens and back, to witness the greatness of Allah S.W.T. and a whiff of the future.

Even though Muhammad S.A.W. was an illiterate, he was a great communicator, teacher, administrator, military leader, examplry family man and community leader and was just to all. He also practiced remarkable diplomacy and  a renowned as an unsurpassed strategist.

In 20 years of Islamic teachings, Muhammad brought the Arabs out from the dark ages to be superb traders, military force and advocates of Islam. Muhammad S.A.W. passed away in Medina at the age of 63 and his teachings, legacy and the spread of Islam was continued a series of caliphs beginning with his most trusted confidante Abu Bakar As-Siddiq.

The holy Al Quran and Muhammad’s hadiths and sunnahs brought upon the once barbaric Arabs to be a world superpower in international diplomacy, military might, trade, mathematics, science and technology, administration and arts within the next 250 years.

  1. Nabi Muhamnad S.A.W, the greatest man among mankind. The greatest man in the history of mankind.
    Sallallah ala Muhammad, Sallallah alai wassaalam. Ya Nabi salaamualaika. Salawatullah alai ka. Selamat Menyambut Hari Keputeraan Rasullullah.

  2. Nik Aziz and Hadi can’t describe it any more enlightening than that. They are too engrossed accusing other Muslims as kafir . . .

    Heard Nik Aziz does not see any reason to celebrate the birth of the greatest human as described by Times mag survey.

    The Tok Guru claiming to be proponent of Darul Islam and Hudud ie PAS style feels young Muhammad was just like any common Arab boy.

  3. Thank you Big Dog. Selawat dan Salam untuk junjungan kita nabi Muhammad saw.

  4. AIRMATA RASULULLAH SAW

    Tiba-tiba dari luar pintu terdengar seorang yang berseru mengucapkan salam. ‘Bolehkah saya masuk?’ tanyanya. Tapi Fatimah tidak mengizin kannya masuk, ‘Maafkan lah,ayahku sedang demam, kata Fatimah yang membalikkan badan dan menutup pintu. Kemudian ia kembali menemani ayahnya yang ternyata sudah membuka mata dan bertanya pada Fatimah,’Siapakah itu wahai anakku?’ ‘Tak tahulah ayahku, orang sepertinya baru sekali ini aku melihatnya,’ tutur Fatimah lembut. Lalu, Rasulullah menatap puterinya itu dengan pandangan yang menggetarkan.Seolah-olah bahagian demi! bahagian wajah anaknya itu hendak dikenang.
    ‘Ketahuilah, dialah yang menghapuskan kenikmatan sementara, dialah yang memisahkan pertemuan di dunia. Dialah malaikatul maut,’ kata Rasulullah, Fatimah pun menahan ledakkan tangisnya. Malaikat maut datang menghampiri, tapi Rasulullah menanyakan kenapa Jibril tidak ikut sama menyertainya.
    Kemudian dipanggilah Jibril yang sebelumnya sudah bersiap di atas langit dunia menyambut ruh kekasih Allah dan penghulu dunia ini. Jibril, jelaskan apa hakku nanti di hadapan Allah?’, tanya Rasululllah dengan suara yang amat lemah. ‘Pintu-pintu langit telah terbuka, para malaikat telah menanti ruhmu. ‘Semua syurga terbuka lebar menanti kedatanganmu,’ kata Jibril. Tapi itu ternyata tidak membuat kan Rasulullah lega,matanya masih penuh kecemasan. ‘Engkau tidak senang mendengar khabar ini?’, tanya Jibril lagi. ‘Khabarkan kepadaku bagaimana nasib umatku kelak?’ ‘Jangan khawatir, wahai Rasul Allah, aku pernah mendengar Allah berfirman kepadaku: ‘Kuharamkan syurga bagi siapa saja, kecuali umat Muhammad telah berada di dalamnya,’ kata Jibril. Detik-detik semakin dekat, saatnya Izrail melakukan tugas. Perlahan ruh Rasulullah ditarik.Nampak seluruh tubuh Rasulullah bersimbah peluh, urat-urat lehernya menegang. ‘Jibril, betapa sakit sakaratul maut ini.’ Perlahan Rasulullah mengaduh. Fatimah terpejam, Ali yang disampingnya menunduk semakin dalam dan Jibril memalingkan muka.
    ‘Jijikkah kau melihatku, hingga kau palingkan wajahmu Jibril?’ Tanya Rasulullah pada Malaikat pengantar wahyu itu. ‘Siapakah yang sanggup, melihat kekasih Allah direnggut ajal,’ kata Jibril. Sebentar kemudian terdengar Rasulullah mengaduh, karena sakit yang tidak tertahankan lagi.
    ‘Ya Allah, dahsyat nya maut ini, timpakan saja semua siksa maut ini kepadaku, jangan pada umatku.’ Badan Rasulullah mulai dingin, kaki dan dadanya sudah tidak bergerak lagi. Bibirnya bergetar seakan hendak membisikkan sesuatu, ! Ali segera mendekatkan telinganya. ‘Uushiikum bis shalati, wa ‘peliharalah shalat dan peliharalah orang-orang lemah di antaramu.’
    Diluar pintu tangis mulai terdengar bersahutan, sahabat saling berpelukan. Fatimah menutupkan tangan di wajahnya, dan Ali kembali mendekatkan telinganya ke bibir Rasulullah yang mulai kebiruan.

    ‘Ummatii,ummatii,ummatiii?’ – ‘Umatku, umatku, umatku’ Dan, berakhirlah hidup manusia mulia yang memberi sinaran itu. Kini, mampukah kita mencintai sepertinya? Allahumma sholli ‘ala Muhammad wa baarik wa salim ‘alaihih
    Betapa cintanya Rasulullah kepada umat baginda.
