(As mentioned): The issue of the first creation – pen, tablet, water or the Prophet (ﷺ) – is in fact probabilistic. We state our position while knowing there is a legitimate difference of opinion.
One should see the Prophet (ﷺ) with the spiritual eye, with Baseerah (penetrating insight), otherwise it will be like the disbelievers among the Quraysh and their vile calling the Prophet (ﷺ) as ‘Mudhamdham’ or ‘Ibn Abi Kabsha’.
We know the difference between people of the Dunya and those of the Akhira in how they present their worldly problems. One shows them as huge, but the others show them as very small since they know Allah is the goal and He is in control of their problems.
(As mentioned): An issue often brought up: Is the Prophet’s (ﷺ) birth mentioned in the Qur’an? The answer is that, yes, there is a strong allusion to it related to Surah al-Feel; this event was an anticipatory miracle of the coming of something enormous, and people at that time knew the grounds for an amazing event was being prepared.
(As mentioned): We see in the Quran that often the singular is used for truth and clarity while multiplicity is used for falsehood, confusion, etc. (examples: Nur vs. Thulumaat, Ru’yaa vs. Ahlaam, Siraat vs. Subul, etc.)
(As mentioned): The Power of Allah is such that He miraculously made the Roman soldiers who had come to take Prophet ‘Isa (Alayhi as-Salaam) see all the disciples of ‘Isa as one (i.e. all of them were made to appear like him)– this was a Kashf (unveiling) of their internal state and how close they were to the message of ‘Isa (Alayhi as-Salaam).
(As mentioned): In the process of Wudhu’, we can become conscious of who we are, so that we know our weaknesses and sins, and subsequently Allah’s total Power over us.
We can in reality not repay the Prophet (ﷺ) for the blessings bestowed upon us through him (ﷺ). Case in point is that we ask Allah to bless him and grant him peace. This is so, since we are nothing really and can do the Prophet (ﷺ) no favors at all. Even the most mundane of material things has its connection with the Muhammadan light and his reality (ﷺ).
The tremendousness of the Prophet (ﷺ) is partially seen when we consider that human beings’ worth and very definition is in relation to him (ﷺ) – since he is the perfect human (ﷺ).
Everyone has something upon which their heart flutters, for some it is sports and their favorite team or whatever they love the most of these temporary concerns, but for Muslims it must be Allah and His Messenger (ﷺ) and their mention.
