Virtues of the Prophet (Choicest blessing and peace be upon him) and Companions - 29th Dhul Hijjah 1431 (5th
December 2010)

Narrated Imran bin Husain (Radi-Allahu 'anhu):

That they were with the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) on a
journey. They travelled the whole night, and when dawn approached, they
took a rest and sleep overwhelmed them till the sun rose high in the sky.
The first to get up was Abu Bakr. Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa
Sallam) used not to be awakened from his sleep, but he would wake up by
himself. 'Umar woke up and then Abu Bakr sat by the side of the Prophet's
head (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) and started saying: Allahu-Akbar
raising his voice till the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) woke up,
(and after traveling for a while) he dismounted and led us in the morning
prayer. A man amongst the people failed to join us in the prayer. When the
Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) had finished the prayer, he asked
(the man), "O so-and-so! What prevented you from offering the prayer with
us?" He replied, "I am Junub," Alllah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa
Sallam) ordered him to perform Tayammam with clean earth. The man then
offered the prayer.

Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) ordered me and a few others
to go ahead of him. We had become very thirsty. While we were on our way
(looking for water), we came across a lady (riding an animal), hanging her
legs between two water-skins. We asked her, "Where can we get water?" She
replied, "Oh! There is no water." We asked, "How far is your house from the
water?" She replied, "A distance of a day and a night travel." We said,
"Come on to Allah's Apostle." She asked, "What is Allah's Apostle?" So we
brought her to Allah's Apostle (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) against her
will, and she told him what she had told us before and added that she was
the mother of orphans.

So the Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) ordered that her two
water-skins be brought and he rubbed the mouths of the water-skins. As we
were thirsty, we drank till we quenched our thirst and we were forty men.
We also filled all our waterskins and other utensils with water, but we did
not water the camels. The waterskin was so full that it was almost about to
burst. The Prophet (Sallallahu 'Alaihi Wa Sallam) then said, "Bring what
(foodstuff) you have." So some dates and pieces of bread were collected for
the lady, and when she went to her people, she said, "I have met either the
greatest magician or a Prophet as the people claim." So Allah guided the
people of that village through that lady. She embraced Islam and they all
embraced Islam.

The life of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is perfect role model of all mankind on the earth. He represented to himself a perfect identity in every field of life. We can learn a lot from his life.
