For Whom Am I Writing this Essay?
My brothers and sisters everywhere! With this essay, I am not singling
out the adherents of Islam—to which I ascribe—but rather I am writing
this essay to every man and woman throughout the whole world.
I ask Allah that He facilitates that this essay reaches every ear, falls under
the sight of every eye, and is understood by every heart.
By Allah, I have written this essay sincerely. I do not seek from anyone
reward or praise. I only seek to convey to all my brethren in humanity,
irrespective of their races or religions, an aspect of the great message
that Muhammad the son of ‘Abdullah, Allah’s final messenger to all the
peoples of the earth, was sent with.
The Quran 1:1-3.
Specifically, I have chosen to explain the wisdom behind those laws that
Allah has legislated regarding women. As contingent upon these laws, an
individual’s bliss on earth is gained and his humanity is achieved. More-
over, these Islamic regulations pertaining to women have been singled
out for attack by the enemies of humanity, who seek to follow their de-
sires and who are short-sighted. Rather, they have put an end to a per-
son’s bliss on earth and exchanged that with misery and a wretched life.
They have attacked these Divine regulations, so that they may turn hu-
manity away from Allah’s true religion, His straight path, and bliss in this
world and the next – toward which the final Messenger of all Divine
messages came to give glad tidings and to invite all humanity to receive.
Muhammad the son of ‘Abdullah is Allah’s Prophet and the Final Mes-
senger Sent by Allah to the Inhabitants of Earth
My brothers and sisters everywhere! You should know that the Messen-
ger, Muhammad the son of ‘Abdullah (may Allah’s blessings and peace
be upon him) is Allah’s Messenger in reality and truth. The evidences
that show his veracity are abundant. None but an infidel, who out of ar-
rogance alone, could deny these signs.
Among these proofs [are the following:]
1. Muhammad (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) was raised
illiterate, unable to read or write, and remained like that till his death.
Among all his people, he was known as being truthful and trustworthy.
Before receiving revelation, he had no prior knowledge of Religion or
any previously sent Message. He remained like that for his first forty
Revelation then came to Muhammad with the Quran that we now have
between our hands. This Quran mentioned most of the accounts found
in the previous scriptures, telling us about these events in the greatest
detail as if he witnessed them. These accounts came precisely as they
were found in the Torah sent down to Moses and in the Gospel sent
down to Jesus. Neither the Jews or Christians were able to belie him re-
garding anything that he said.
2. Muhammad (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) also fore-
told of everything that would occur to him and his community after him,
pertaining to victory, the removal of the tyrannical kingdoms of Chos-
and Caesar, and the establishment of the religion of Islam
throughout the earth. These events occurred exactly as Muhammad
foretold, as if he was reading the future from an open book.
3. Muhammad (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) also
brought an Arabic Quran that is the peak of eloquence and clarity. The
Quran challenged those eloquent and fluent Arabs of his time, who ini-
tially belied him, to bring forth a single chapter like the Quran. The elo-
quent Arabs of his day were unable to contest this Quran.
Indeed, till our day, none has ever dared to claim that he has been able
to compose words that equal – or even approach – the order, grace,
beauty, and splendor of this Glorious Quran.
4. The life history of this Noble Prophet was a perfect example of being
upright, merciful, compassionate, truthful, brave, generous, distant from
all evil character, and ascetic in all worldly matters, while striving solely
for the reward of the Hereafter. Moreover, in all his actions and deal-
ings, he was ever mindful and fearful of Allah.
5. Allah instilled great love for Muhammad (may Allah’s blessings and
peace be upon him) in the hearts of all who believed in and met him.
This love reached such a degree that any of his companions would will-
ingly sacrifice his (or her) self, mother or father for him.
The royal title for the Zoroastrian kings of Persia.
Till today, those who believe in Muhammad honor and love him. Any-
one of those who believe in him would ransom his own family and
wealth to see him, even if but once.
6. All of history has not preserved the biography of any person in the
manner it has preserved the life of Muhammad, who is the most influen-
tial human in history.
Nor has the entire earth known of anyone whom every morning and
evening, and many times thereafter throughout the day, is thought of by
those who believe in him. Upon remembering Muhammad, the believers
in him will greet him and ask Allah to bless him. They do such with full
hearts and true love for him.
7. Nor has there every been a man on earth whom is still followed in all
his doings by those who believe in him.
Those who believe in Muhammad, sleep in the manner he slept; purify
themselves (through ablution and ritual washing) in the manner he puri-
fied himself; and adhere to his practice in the way they eat, drink, and
Indeed in all aspects of their lives, the believers in Muhammad adhere to
the teachings he spread among them and the path that he traveled upon
during his life.
During every generation, from his day till our time, the believers in this
Noble Prophet have fully adhered to his teachings. With some, this has
reached the degree that they desire to follow and adhere to the Prophet’s
way in his personal matters regarding which Allah has not sought of
them to adhere to in worship. For example, some will only eat those
specific foods or only wear those specific garments that the Messenger
Let alone all that, all those who believe in Muhammad repeat those
praises of Allah, special prayers, and invocations that he would say dur-
ing each of his actions during day and night, like: what he would say
when he greeted people, upon entering and leaving the house, entering
and leaving the mosque, entering and leaving the bathroom, going to
sleep and awaking from sleep, observing the new crescent, observing the
new fruit on trees, eating, drinking, dressing, riding, traveling and return-
ing from travel, etc.
Let alone all that, all those who believe in Muhammad fully perform –
even to the minute detail – every act of worship – like prayer, fasting,
charity, and pilgrimage – as this Noble Messenger (may Allah’s blessings
and peace be upon him) taught and as he himself performed.
All of this allows those who believe in him, to live their lives in all as-
pects with this Noble Messenger as their example, as if he was standing
before them, for them to follow in all their doings.
8. There has never been nor will there ever be a man anywhere upon this
earth who has received such love, respect, honor, and obedience in all
matters – small and large alike – as has this Noble Prophet.
Since his day, in every region of the earth and during every period, this
Noble Prophet has been followed by individuals from all races, colors
and peoples. Many of those who followed him were previously Chris-
tians, Jews, pagans, idolaters, or without any religion. Among those who
chose to follow him, were those who were known for their sound judg-
ment, wisdom, reflection, and foresight. They choose to follow this No-
ble Prophet after they witnessed the signs of his truthfulness and the
evidences of his miracles. They did not choose to follow Muhammad
out of compulsion or coercion or because they had adopted the ways of
their fathers and mothers.
Indeed many of the followers of this Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and
peace be upon him), chose to follow him during the time when Islam
was weak, when there were few Muslims, and when there was severe
persecution of his followers on earth. Most people who have followed
this Prophet (may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) have done
so not to acquire some material benefits. Indeed many of his followers
have suffered the greatest forms of harm and persecution as a result of
following this Prophet. Despite all this harm and persecution, this did
not turn them back from his religion.
My brethren! All of this clearly indicates to anyone possessing any sense,
that this Prophet was truly and really Allah’s messenger and that he was
not just a man who claimed prophethood or spoke about Allah without
10. With all this, Muhammad came with a great religion in its creedal and
Muhammad described Allah with qualities of complete perfection, and at
the same time in a manner that is free of ascribing to Him any imperfec-
tion. Neither the philosophers or the wise could ever describe Allah like
such. Indeed it is impossible to imagine that any human mind could
conceive of an existing being that possesses such complete ability,
knowledge, and greatness; Who has subdued the creation; Who has en-
compassed everything in the universe, small or large; and Who possesses
such perfect mercy.
Nor is it in the ability of any human being to place a perfect law based
upon justice, equality, mercy and objectivity for all human activity on
earth like the laws that Muhammad brought for all spheres of human ac-
tivity – like, buying and selling, marriage and divorce, renting, testimony,
custody, and all other contracts that are necessary to uphold life and
civilization on earth.
11. It is impossible that any person conceive wisdom, morals, good
manners, nobleness of character as what this honorable Prophet (may
Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) brought.
