The Prophet's Qualities
Even as a young man, Muhammad had to work hard to earn a living. He looked after other people's goats, and later he gained experience of trading from his visits to Syria with his uncle Abu Talib. His truthfulness, honesty, pleasant ways and hard work made him a successful trader. These qualities were given to him by AII- Mighty Allah. He was respected throughout the land. People used to call him Sediq, meaning a person who is very upright and true, and Amín, the trustworthy.
Summary The Prophet (pbuh) had to work hard from a very young age. He (pbuh) used to look after other people’s goats. He gained experience in trade when his uncle Abu Talib took him to Syria on a trade trip. The Prophet’s (pbuh) truthfulness, honest, pleasant ways and hard work made him a successful trader.
At one time the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka'ba, to re-set the stones above the foundations. In one of the corners they wanted to put the black stone, but could not decide who should have the honour of placing it there. They would have quarrelled violently if the young man they all admired and trusted had not come by.
They asked Muhammad to settle the dispute. He told them to spread a large cloak and place the black stone in the middle. They did so. Then, he asked a man from each of the four c1ans who were in dispute to take hold of a corner of the cloak. In this way they all shared the honour of carrying the stone. When they reached the place where it was to be put, Muhammad himself took the stone and set it in the wall. This incident shows c1early how much he was respected and admired for his justice and wisdom.
