Shirazi, M. R. (2005). The Prophet Muhammad A Mercy to the World. Retrieved from

A man brought the chick of a bird to the gathering of the Prophet and his companions, and they noticed that the parent of the chick was following it, flapping around it. When the man sat down its parent threw itself upon its chick, and did not concern itself with the danger, out of care towards its chick. This astonished the companions. The Prophet Muhammad then turned to his companionsand said: (Are you amazed at this bird? You have taken its chick and it threw itself into danger out of mercy for the chick! I swear by God, your Lord is more merciful to you than this bird is to its chick). Then he turned to the man and asked him to let the chick go.

For a long time, a need was felt for a brief book that captures the essence of the way of life and teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, and at the same time serves as an easy introduction for the layperson to the greatest personality that mankind has ever known. Despite the many reference and scholarly books on the subject, few give a glimpse of the magnificent character and conduct of the final messenger of God in the way the works of Grand Ayatollah Imam Muhammad Shirazi do.

(Hope is a mercy for my nation. Where not for hope,no mother would ever feed her child, and no gardener would ever plant a tree. The best of combat is to combat one’s self that is between one’s flanks). The Prophet Muhammad
