Unique Characteristics of Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.w)

As mentioned earlier, the prophets of Allah are the manifestation of divine beauty and names, and the Prophet of Islam demonstrates the divine attribute of ‘there is none like unto Him` .


The following are some of the unique characteristics of Prophet Muhammad:

1. The light and spirit of Muhammad (s.a.w.w.) was the first creation of Allah.


2. Universal Mission . The most we can say about the scope of the mission of the previous prophets is that their mission included all people of their time across the globe and remained in force until the advent of the next law-making prophet. The mission of the Prophet of Islam, however, was for the whole of mankind across the globe and until the Day of Judgment. The Almighty Allah states:

“And We have not sent you (O Muhamad) except as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all mankind.” [34:28]


3. He is mercy for the whole worlds:

“And We have not sent you but as a mercy for the worlds.” [21:107]

4. The seal of the Prophets:

“Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last (end) of the Prophets.” [36:40]

5. His Scripture is a protector and a guard over all the previous scriptures, safeguarding the truth in them which has been perverted by man throughout history.

“And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Muhayman (a protector and controller) over it.” [5:48]

6. The religion of Prophet Muhammad was Islam in its complete form with no perversion in it, and hence it is the right and straight ( Qayyem ) religion.

“So set you (O Muhammad) your face on the straight and right religion.” [30:43]
