THE PARADIGMS OF MUHAMMAD SAW

-
In The Name Of God, the Most Gracious the Most Merciful.
-
Many of the paradigms previously employed to sustain negative judgments about Muhammad's person and mission have since given way to an objective acknowledgment of his position as a role model whose life holds special schematic value.
-
Muhammad as one who went from being an obscure seeker of truth to a proclaimer of the Divine message, the Prophet comes across as a remarkable endurer of unprovoked assaults on person, honor and belief. Moreover, Muhammad's qualities of perseverance, broadmindedness, and aplomb are reflected in his relations with other belief systems, especially Jews and Christians.
-
The establishment, in Medina under Muhammad, of a prosperous community governed by Divine law after the tribulations and persecutions experienced by the Prophet and his followers provides a teleological explanation of the concept of hijrah in Islam. But the one significant aspect of the Medinan phase of the Prophet's life is the Covenant of Medina, which represents the most viable constitution the world can have in a pluralistic setting. Pluralism differs from particularism. The former promotes a sense of equality rather toleration. The significance of the distinction is brought out in today's world, especially in societies where Muslims are victims of institutional oppression and negative stereotypes.
-
The true meaning of jihad is struggle against personal or societal injustice. This refutes, the exclusivist-and often mischievous-statement concept in purely aggressive and military terms. On the whole, the image of the Prophet is-rightly-that of the Perfect Man: a persevering caller to truth, a stoic optimist, a pluralistic leader who is humble in victory, courageous in defeat, firm in dispensation of justice, respectful of friend, sympathetic to opponent, and above all a spiritual leader of substance.
