Paradigms


“Ya Sin. By the Quran filled with wisdom. You (O Muhammad) are 
indeed one of the Messengers, on a straight path.” [36:1-4]

During the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon Him), the people of the Arabian Peninsula adopted many abhorrent practices such obsession in tribalism, the burying of daughters alive, abuse of slaves, and dishonesty in transactions. Yet the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon Him) was able to eradicate these practices from their hearts and minds, and then adorn them with lofty virtues such as striving for excellence, taking the middle path, honouring daughters, kissing children, living humbly, abolishing racism, being honest in transactions, sanctifying life, eating pure, seeking knowledge, etc. How did he accomplish this?
