Speech of His Eminence the scholar Mohamad Ali El Husseini on the occasion of the Prophet’s birthday.
O beloved ones, the birth of Muhammad (PBUH) changed the course of history, as he brought a message of mercy to all humanity, “And We have not sent you except as a mercy to the worlds.” Muhammad came to spread the message of his Lord and bring people out of the oppression of His servants to the justice of the Lord of His servants, and from the worship of His servants to the worship of the Lord of His servants, and from the enslavement of people to their liberation. He came to perfect morals, values and virtues, and he said (may God bless him and grant him peace) “I was sent to perfect the noblest morals” and he received a certificate and a medal from the Lord of the Worlds that you are of great creation. He came to rid humanity of bad customs and outdated traditions and saved them from fear, violence and extremism and kept them away from fanaticism and called them to love, tolerance and moderation.
The message of the Prophet Muhammad came to confront the rampant racism at that time, saying, “There is no difference between an Arab and a non-Arab, or a white or a black, except by piety.” It placed people in the scale of Islam’s justice, all of them equal in humanity, duties, and rights. Rather, he was a mercy that crawled on the earth and a tree whose mercy kept young and old, men and women, in order to establish with his morals the existing values of Islam. On love between all human beings, his heart was large enough for an entire nation.
