Droplets from the ocean of knowledge of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم

First droplet

KNOW, O FRIEND, that Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلّم, this indisputable, articulate argument for our Lord, has a universal personality. He can be described in the following terms:
As his person is universal in nature, Earth is his mosque, Makka his place of worship, and Madina his pulpit. He leads all believers, who stand behind him in rows and follow his words on the principles of happiness [in
both worlds]. The chief of all Prophets, he removes the lies and slurs leveled against them by their own people and affirms them and the essentials of their religions within Islam. The master of all saints, he guides and educates them via the light of his Messengership. He is the “pivot” around which turns a circle formed of the Prophets, the good, the truthful, and the righteous,who recite God’s Names and agree on his Message.

Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلّم, is a luminous tree growing on the firm, healthy, and lively roots of the previous Prophets and the heavenly principles they preached. This tree shoots out green, fresh branches yielding the fine “fruit” of saints distinguished with knowledge of God.Whatever he claimed is confirmed by all Prophets based on their miracles,and by all saints based on their good or marvelous works. All his affirmations bear the seals of all perfected people. If one hears him declaring there is no deity but God, thereby affirming Divine Unity, one will hear the same declaration from the past and the future, from the illustrious shining “suns” and stars of humanity reciting God’s Names in His circle. Despite their different
approaches and temperaments, they agree with all of his affirmations, as if saying in unison: “You declare and speak the truth.”

How can one object to what has been affirmed by innumerable witnesses,whose miracles and marvelous good works display their pure characters and truthfulness?

Second droplet

KNOW, O FRIEND, that this illustrious person, who affirms Divine Unity and guides humanity to it, is confirmed by Prophethood and sainthood. Billions of people have agreed upon this for 14 centuries. Earlier revealed Scriptures (the Torah, the Gospels, the Psalms, etc.) predicted his coming and confirm
his Prophethood. He is confirmed by marvels that, prior to his Prophethood, either he worked or that took  place in connection with him. It is also reported through reliable channels that his coming was predicted.
He is affirmed by the hundreds of miracles he worked: splitting the moon; abundant water flowing from his fingers; trees moving in answer to his call;the coming of rain upon his prayer; satisfying many hungry people with very little food through his blessing; understanding the languages of rocks,trees, lizards, gazelles, camels, and wolves, and so on. All of these were narrated by truthful Traditionists and historians. He is also confirmed by the Islamic law, which enables people to find happiness in both worlds. You
already have seen the rays from its “sun” diffusing happiness. If your eyes and heart are open, this will be enough for you.

Third droplet

KNOW, O FRIEND, that his very person or character proves his Prophethood. Like the sun [showing itself through its light, heat, and other manifestations],all of the praiseworthy virtues concentrated in his person, as well as the merits and excellences he displayed while fulfilling his mission, confirm
his Prophethood. Further proofs are his firm belief demonstrated by his austere life, great awe of God, righteousness, and matchless servanthood to his Lord. The Prophet’s complete submission to God, to which his life testifies the perfection of his earnestness, firmness, and courage; and his utmost certainty
in his movements shown by his full confidence in his cause all confirm him. Just as green leaves, bright blossoms, and fresh fruits bear witness to a tree’s vigor, the Prophet’s full adherence to his cause and following it in total certainty and strictness confirm him in his claim.

Fourth droplet

KNOW, O FRIEND, that time and space greatly influence human reasoning and thought. So, let’s free ourselves of these constraints and travel back in time to the Arabian peninsula during the Age of Happiness. Putting on the clothes of that time, we will visit the “Axis of the Sphere of Divine Messengership”
at work.Open your eyes and look carefully. What catches our eyes first is an extraordinary man excelling all others in good looks and good conduct. He has a revealed book, and speaks in an extraordinarily concise and wise way while addressing creation, humanity, jinn, and all other creatures.
What strange things he speaks about: a very important affair, a very awesome tiding. He removes the veil of mystery from the universe’s creation, explains why it was created, and answers the questions that occupy
the mind of every conscious being: Who am I? Where do I come from? What is my purpose or final destination?

Fifth droplet

Look at this most illustrious being. See how he disseminates the truth with such light that our night is changed into daytime, our winter into spring. It is as if the universe changed form so that its vexed, distressful face became cheerful and smiling.
If we do not look at the universe according to the light [of the truth] that he brought, it seems full of sorrow, its living creatures like strangers and mutual enemies, and its inanimate objects like frightening corpses. We see animals and human beings as orphans weeping at the pain of death and separation.
The world’s movements, changes, alterations, decorations, and adornments seem like meaningless playthings of chance. Our helplessness is a continuous source of trouble, and our poverty renders us powerless. Human
reason or intellect continually upset us with sorrows of the past and anxieties of the future, causing us to be the lowest and most wretched of animals.
 Now look at the universe with his light and observe it through the telescope of Islam. See how its appearance has changed. It is no longer a house of mourning, but a mosque in which all beings praise and thank the Creator and reflect [on His works]. Creatures that formerly seemed like strangers
and mutual enemies have become friends, brothers, and sisters. Inanimate objects, seen as terrifying corpses, have become like amiable living beings fulfilling certain important functions. In the tongue of those functions or
tasks, they articulate their Creator’s signs.
Living beings who were like orphans weeping with pain and complaints now appear as reciting the Creator’s Names throughout their lives and thanking him for discharging them from their duties (death). The universe’s
movements, changes, and alterations are no longer subject to chance, but messages from the Creator’s rulership or mastership, “pages” on which He writes His signs of creation and rules of the universe, and mirrors in which His Names are reflected. In sum, the universe is a book of Divine Wisdom.

 Now look at the past, that great tomb of darkness. See how it has been illuminated with the suns of Prophets and stars of saints. Look at the future, the darkest of nights. See how it has been illuminated with the Qur’an’s light and appears as gardens of Paradise.
Now look at people and see how they progressed from being helpless, destitute, and degraded animals to the rank of Divine caliphate on Earth.

They have progressed through the force of their weakness, the power of their helplessness, the motive of their poverty, the incentive of their destitution, the strength of their servanthood, the light of their heart, and the splendor of their intellect. Then look how the reasons for their descent (helplessness, poverty and weakness) have become the reasons for their ascension due to their being enlightened by the light brought by that luminous person: Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings.Without his presence, the universe and everything in it (including humanity) would have been rendered worthless and meaningless. Had it notbeen for that wonderful, superior person who makes known the universe and its Creator, this beautiful universe would not have existed, for we could not have understood its meaning. How truthful is He Whose words are true,and for Whom is the sovereignty of creation, in His declaration: But for you,
I would not have created the worlds.
