Three special virtues of the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم

1. Deeds of Ummah are presented

Every day, all the deeds of Ummah are presented to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in the morning and evening. He صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم thanks Almighty Allah for the good deeds of Ummah, whereas he صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم asks forgiveness for the bad deeds [of his Ummah].[1]

Blessings in his blessed life as well as after apparent demise

The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم has stated: My life is better for you. You talk to me and I talk to you for your benefit. When I will pass away, my demise will be better for you. Your deeds will be presented to me. If I see virtue, I will praise Allah Almighty, and if I find evil, I will make Du’a to Allah Almighty for your forgiveness.[2]

Beloved Rasool is aware of the state of every Ummati

Imam-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat, Imam Ahmad Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has stated: Not only Salat and Salam, but everything the Ummah says, does, and performs is presented to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم twice a day. It has been explicitly mentioned in many blessed Ahadees that all kinds of good and bad deeds are presented to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم. Similarly, the deeds are also presented to all the Prophets عَـلَـيْهِمُ السَّلَام, parents, dear ones, and relatives.

I have collected all such Ahadees in my booklet ‘ﺳَﻠْﻄَﻨَﺔُ الْمُصْطَفٰی فِیْ مَلَکُوْتِ کُلِّ الْوَرٰی’. However, it is sufficient to state here that Imam-e-Ajal Abdullah Bin Mubarak رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has narrated from Sayyiduna Sa’eed Bin Musayyab رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ عَنْهُمَا:

لَيْسَ مِنْ يَوْمٍ  اِلَّا وَتُعْرَضُ عَلَى النَّبِى صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم اَعْمَالُ اُمَّتِهٖ غُدْوَةً وَّعَشِيّاً فَيَعْرِفُهُمْ بِسِيْمَاهُمْ وَاَعْمَالِهِم

There is not a single day when the deeds of the Ummah of Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم are not presented to him twice a day in the morning as well as in the evening. So, the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم knows them by the signs on their faces as well as by their deeds.[3]

I, with the Taufeeq bestowed by Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ, can write a comprehensive (i.e. detailed) book on this topic, but for the one who does justice, this much is sufficient and if Allah Almighty blesses [him] with guidance, then even a word is sufficient.

How many times are deeds presented in a week?

O the devotees of Rasool! Remember! The deeds of Ummah are presented to the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم daily in the morning as well as in the evening. In addition, they are presented on every Monday, Thursday, and Friday. It has been mentioned in different narrations.

Imam-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has stated: The deeds of Ummah are presented to the Beloved Rasool (صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم) daily in the morning and evening separately, then, on Monday and Thursday separately and then, the deeds of the entire week are presented on Friday separately.[4]

2. Would always say what is right

The Holy Prophet صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم would always say the right thing in every state whether he was sad or happy.[6]

Note down everything you hear me say

Sayyiduna Abdullah Bin ‘Amr رَضِیَ اللّٰهُ عَنْهُمَا has stated that whatever I heard Rasoolullah صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم say, I would note it down so that I could remember it. Quraysh forbade me to do so and said, ‘Do you note down whatever you hear? Rasoolullah صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is a human. He speaks in both states whether he is pleased or displeased.’ (Having heard this) I stopped noting things down. Later on, when I discussed this with the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم, he صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم pointed his blessed finger towards his sacred mouth and said: اُكْتُبْ فَوَالَّذِي نَفْسِيْ بِيَدِہٖ مَا يَخْرُجُ مِنْهُ اِلَّا حَقٌّ, i.e. Note down (whatever you hear me say). I swear to the One in Whose control my soul is! This (i.e. my mouth) only speaks what is right.[7]

Woh dahn jis ki har baat wahi-e-Khuda

Chashmah-e-‘ilm-o-hikmat pay lakhon salaam[8]

3. Did not say anything by his own desire

Almighty Allah has stated:

وَ مَا یَنْطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوٰىؕ(۳) اِنْ هُوَ اِلَّا وَحْیٌ یُّوْحٰىۙ(۴)

And he does not say anything of his own desire. It is not but a revelation, which is sent down upon him.[9]

[Kanz-ul-Iman (translation of Quran)](Part 27, Surah An-Najm, Ayah 3-4)

Commenting on this, Mufti Ahmad Yar Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has stated in ‘Tafseer-e-Noor-ul-Irfan’: Quran and Hadees all are Divine revelation, as this verse has stated. However, Quran is an apparent revelation and Hadees is concealed (i.e. hidden revelation).

The commentator of Bukhari Mufti Sharif-ul-Haq Amjadi رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has mentioned: This is right and correct that every word of the Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the revelation from Allah Almighty whether it is apparent or hidden, because the blessed verse

وَ مَا یَنْطِقُ عَنِ الْهَوٰىؕ(۳) اِنْ هُوَ اِلَّا وَحْیٌ یُّوْحٰىۙ(۴)

has stated the same thing: The Beloved Rasool صَلَّى اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم does not say anything without a revelation.[10]

The great Mufti of Hind Allamah Maulana Mustafa Raza Khan رَحْمَةُ الـلّٰـهِ عَـلَيْه has said:

Hawa say pak jis ki zaat-e-qudsi

Woh jis ki baat bhi wahi-e-Khuda hay

Nahin kehtay huwa-e-nafs say kuch

            Jo farmaye wohi wahi-e-Khuda hay[11]
