MUHAMMAD ALAIHI ’S-SALAM’S SUPERIORITY

Allahu ta’ala had addressed other prophets by their names. As for Muhammad (’alaihi ’s-salam), He favoured him by addressing him, “Oh My Prophet (Rasul)!” The like of every miracle that had been granted to every prophet was presented to him. Allahu ta’ala bestowed upon His Beloved Prophet more gifts and granted him more miracles than He had done to any other prophet of His. He was made superior to all prophets with countless honours and excellences: the moon split into two when he made a sign with his blessed finger; the stones in his palm uttered the Name of Allah; trees greeted him by saying, “O Rasulallah”; the dry log named Hannana cried because Rasulullah (’alaihi ’s-salam) departed from its side and left it alone; pure water flowed down through his blessed fingers; the high grades of al-Maqam al-Mahmud, ash-Shafa’at al-kubra, al-Hawd al-Kawthar, al-Wasila and al-Fadila were said to be given to him in the next world; he had the honour of seeing Allahu ta’ala’s Jamal before entering Paradise; he had the greatest moral quality in the world, the most perfect faith, knowledge, gentleness, patience, gratitude, zuhd (devotion, asceticism), chastity, justness, heroism, bashfulness, bravery, modesty, wisdom, beautiful manners, helpfulness, mercy and inexhaustible honors and honourable traits. No one but Allahu ta’ala knows the number of miracles given to him. His religion abrogated all other religions. His religion was the best and highest of all the religions. His umma[2] is higher than all other ummas. The Awliya’ [2] of his umma are more honourable than the Awliya’ of other ummas.
