Mohammad at Mecca, Oxford 1953, p. 52:
"His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement – all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad."
The Life and Teachings of Muhammad, Madras 1932, p. 4:
"It is impossible for anyone who studies the life and character of the great Prophet of Arabia, who knows how he taught and how he lived, to feel anything but reverence for that mighty Prophet, one of the great messengers of the Supreme. And although in what I put to you I shall say many things which may be familiar to many, yet I myself feel whenever I re-read them, a new way of admiration, a new sense of reverence for that mighty Arabian teacher."
Mohammed and Mohammadanism, London 1874, p. 92:
"He was Caesar and Pope in one; but he was Pope without Pope's pretensions, Caesar without the legions of Caesar: without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue; if ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by the right divine, it was Mohammed, for he had all the power without its instruments and without its supports."
- History of the Saracen Empire, London, 1870, p. 54:
"It is not the propagation but the permanency of his religion that deserves our wonder, the same pure and perfect impression which he engraved at Mecca and Medina is preserved, after the revolutions of twelve centuries by the Indian, the African and the Turkish proselytes of the Koran...The Mahometans have uniformly withstood the temptation of reducing the object of their faith and devotion to a level with the senses and imagination of man. 'I believe in One God and Mahomet the Apostle of God', is the simple and invariable profession of Islam. The intellectual image of the Deity has never been degraded by any visible idol; the honors of the prophet have never transgressed the measure of human virtue, and his living precepts have restrained the gratitude of his disciples within the bounds of reason and religion."
– Quoted in Christian Cherfils BONAPARTE ET ISLAM (PARIS 1914)
“I hope the time is not far off when I shall be able to unite all the wise and educated men of all the countries and establish a uniform regime based on the principles of Qur'an which alone are true and which alone can lead men to happiness.”
Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) said, "The believers who show the most perfect Faith are those who have the best behaviour, and the best of you are those who are the best to their wives".[At-Tirmidhi]

Summary of Jummah Khutbah delivered by Sheikh Dr. Abdul Rehman Al Sudais on 13 Rabi Al Awwal 1442 corresponding to 30 October 2020
Sheikh Sudais: “Brothers of Faith, Since more than fourteen centuries of the mission of the Master of the Apostles, May blessings and Peace be upon him, his beautifully embellished beauty has perfumed the countries and places with the realities of awe and beauty, fear and majesty, and the wisdom that is revealed through his words and deeds witnessed by many”
The ummah’s prayer and love for its Messenger and Beloved, may Allah’s prayers and peace be upon him, his biography, and his fragrant virtues is not a connection of times and occasions. Rather, it is a close connection in all circumstances and all affairs and conditions of life until death.
Sheikh Sudais spoke of the qualities of Prophet Muhammad (May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him): When people hear about the Messenger's honourable qualities, their hearts are enlivened just as the ground is after the rainfall. All goodness, guidance, and moderation can be found in what was narrated about him. He was sound in his physical form as well as his conduct. When silent, his appearance was awe-inspiring. When he spoke, he was enveloped by gracefulness. He was the most elegant of people when at a distance, and the finest and clearest when up close.
Ali (R.A) described the Prophet (May Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him) by saying, "He was not very tall or very short, he had wide palms and feet, his head was large, his joints were large, and he had a long thin line of hair from his chest to his midsection.”
Hassan ibn Thabit said about the Prophet in lines of poetry conveying the meaning, "My eyes never saw anyone better than you, and women have not given birth to anyone better looking than you. You were created without blemish, as though you were made just the way you wanted to be."
People of the Pure Prophets! (May Allah bless them all) “We make no distinction between any of His messengers." “We, in the name of one billion and eight hundred million Muslims, condemn and denounce in the strongest terms the insults of prophecies and messages, especially our Prophet Muhammad.” The cartoons and caricatures are offensive and outrageous and are a form of terrorism, a form of hate-fueled extremism and abhorrent racism, not freedom of expression!
Directing insults or mockery of religious sanctities and symbols is the transgression of morals and customs and is repercussive for its owner, because freedom of expression must take into account human values that are based on respect for the feelings of others, and when they deviate from those values, they offend the moral meaning of freedoms and the ideals of these offenses
Extremist ideas who want to spread an atmosphere of hatred among human societies and Islam is innocent of all this and that, and it is innocent of accusations of terrorism being attached to it. It is a religion of tolerance, compassion, and cohesion, and it does not contain terrorism, extremism, sabotage, mockery or ridicule, or a distinction between the prophets and messengers of Allah Almighty.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
