Q.1) Write a précis of paragraph 5.
Hazrat Muhammad P.B.U.H was the embodiment of justice that even his bitter enemies consulted him to seek justice regarding their suits. and Hazrat Muhammad PBUH solved them as per Jewish Laws with the commandment of Allah. He advised to either judge between them in equity or do not interfere. For God loves those who judge with equity.
Q.2) Write an essay on “Hazrat Muhammad ﷺ as an Exemplary Judge”. (220-250 words)
Allah says, “You (Hazrat Muhammad PBUH) are surely of a sublime character, and do act by a sublime pattern of conduct.” And Allah says, “Be uphold of justice.” The Prophet (PBUH) abided by Allah’s commands, even with such difficult people, and never made any concessions in his implementation of justice. He became an example for all times with the words, “My Lord has commanded justice”. This noble attitude of the Prophet PBUH, being in total harmony with the morality of the Qur’an, should be taken as an example of how justice should be implemented in society.
A number of incidents testify to the Prophet PBUH’s justice. He lived in a place where people of different religions, languages, races and tribes all co-existed. It was very difficult for those societies to live together in peace and security, and to check those who sought to spread dissension. One group could grow aggressive towards and even attack another over the slightest word or action. Yet, the justice of the Prophet PBUH was a source of peace and security for those other communities, just as much as it was for Muslims. During the time of the Prophet PBUH, Christians, Jews and pagans were all treated equally.
The Prophet’s justice brought about understanding between people of different races. In many of his addresses, even in his final sermon, the Prophet PBUH stated that superiority lay not in race but in godliness. During his final sermon, the Prophet PBUH called on Muslims in these terms: “There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a non-Arab over an Arab; nor for white over the black nor for the black over the white except in piety. Verily the noblest among you is he who is the most pious”
A woman from the tribe of Quraish was found guilty of theft. For the prestige of Quraish, some prominent people intercede to save her from the punishment. The prophet Hazrat Muhammad PBUH refused and condone the crime and expressed displeasure saying,
“Many a community ruined itself in the past as they only punished the poor and ignored the offences of the exalted. By Allah, if Muhammad’s (My) daughter Fatima would have committed theft, her hand would have been severed.”
The Jews, in spite of their hostility to the Prophet Hazrat Muhammad PBUH, were so impressed by his impartiality and sense of justice that they used to bring their cases to him, and he decided them according to Jewish law.
The Prophet PBUH asked people to be just and kind. As the supreme judge and arbiter, as the leader of men, as a head commander and chief of a rising power, as a reformer and apostle, he had always to deal with men and their affairs. He had often to deal with mutually inimical and warring tribes when showing justice to one carried the danger of antagonizing the other, and yet he never deviated from the path of justice. In administering justice, he made no distinction between believers and nonbelievers, friends and foes, high and low. We should follow these guidelines to make our society devoid of evils.
