All the Muslims believe that Allah ( SWT ) has sent prophets which are the best educators. These prophets embrace sincerity and vision. All the Muslims believe that the Holy prophet ( PBUH ) was guided by Allah(SWT), the words and deeds were confirmed as needed through revelations.
Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) lived 63 years. He was orphaned as a child and raised by his uncle in Makkah. He worked as a shepherd and trader.
When He was 40 years old, Hazrat Gabriel (AS), appeared to Him to deliver a message from Allah(SWT),an event which was to recur many times throughout the rest of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad ( SAW ) life.
This began the process by which Allah directed the Holy prophet (PBUH) to establish the Islamic preaching. more reading In addition to the instructions in the Holy Qurran, over 100,000 ahadith (sayings and explanations of the revealed information) are attributed to Him. All of his teachings offer guidance in the fundamentals of Islamic education for every Muslim. His teachings address the entire life cycle ( i-e. from birth to the afterlife).
It would be difficult to assemble all of the Holy Prophet’s (PBUH) teachings into a single book.
A comprehensive review of Islamic literature reveals that many scholars have investigated prophetic education. Initially, the scholars discussed the entire context of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW ) teachings. As time passed, however, they were able to focus on more specific content areas, such as how these teachings can be applied to specific areas and phases in one’s life.
THE FOUNDATIONS OF PROPHETIC EDUCATION
The Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) strove to convey the key principles of Islam to his companions. One book of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) hadith contains over 90 chapters dealing with such areas as knowledge, health, prayer, the environment, and finance. These ahadith are the guidelines for how to conduct one’s life as a member of a cohesive society. The following ahadith explain these principles:
The first concept concerns the five pillars of Islam:
1) to testify that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah and that Muhammad (SAW) is Allah’s Apostle,
2) to perform the prayers
3) to pay Zakat (i-e. obligatory charity )
4) to fast during the month of Ramadan
5) to perform a Hajj (i-e. a pilgrimage to Makka).
Muslims are required to participate in all five areas.
In Islam, humans have no original sin. Holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad ( SAW ) said, “every child is born with a disposition towards the natural religion (i-e. Islam: submission to the Divine will). Your parents make you a Jew, a Christian, or a Magian”. Thus, every child is born free from sin.
Change and personal growth come from within; behavior does not improve spontaneously. Muslims are required to persist in modifying unacceptable behaviors, and to follow up bad deeds with good deeds in order to atone for transgressions. Allah says, “Verily never will Allah change the condition of a people until they change it themselves (wit their own souls )”.
