What can the teachings of Prophet Muhammad offer us in the 21st Century?

The teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) changed the lives of the Arabs. Before him they were merely Bedouins with no civilization, as compared to the civilization that they themselves made after becoming Muslims.

Prophet Muhammad's character could ultimately change a person like Umar Ibn Al-Khattab—who worshipped an idol that was made of dates—to become the leader of the whole Muslim community and one of the most righteous leaders the world has ever known.

Anybody who reads about the Muslims' civilization and how it was built would certainly recognize the huge effect of the Prophet's personality, the ethics and values he taught, the simple lifestyle he lived, and his wisdom that could unite the Arabs after being so tribalistic. So many books were written about Prophet Muhammad; however there always remains much more to be written.

Muslims believe that the character and teachings of Prophet Muhammad are not specific only to one time. One can benefit from them even though they are living in the 21st century. Reading Islam presents a folder that will shed some light on the character and teachings of the Prophet, and show how beneficial his biography is to humankind today. Browse through our special coverage below where you will find a mix of articles, and informative Q&A submissions about this topic.
