Prophet Mohammad, the last messenger who Allah entrusted with the Quran, serves as the ideal role model that all mankind should emulate and be like to reach our highest level of perfection.   Weather it was his generosity or his humbleness, his honesty or justness, nobody could match the prophets’ flawless character. His character is displayed through his actions, and those actions are compiled into hadiths recorded by numerous historians. The most famous of those, Persian Muslim scholar Muhammad ibn Is mail al-Bukhari, is widely known as the main source of the prophets’ hadiths and his compilation is regarded as the most authentic by the Sunni‘s.

In the hadiths he appeals using both reason and emotion to get his point across. For example, in one hadith, a woman comes to the prophet and asks if...
