The Holy Prophet’s (s.w.a.) birth: a permanent divine mercy on humanity

 

This great birth was the birth of the best divine blessing that has ever been bestowed on humanity. The sending of the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) was a blessing that Allah the Exalted bestowed on His servants. His birth was the birth of a blessing.

The world of Islam should understand the point that this blessing is permanent and constant, not temporary. At that time, many people fought this manifestation of light and guidance because of their ignorance or their self-centered prejudices although the Holy Prophet (s.w.a.) had been sent in order to remove a burden from the shoulders of humanity. “He will relieve them of their burden and the fetters that they used to wear.”(۱)

 Human beings were carrying heavy burdens at that time. They were carrying heavy millstones around their necks. And people are still carrying the same burden. It is not extravagant to claim that humanity is carrying heavy burdens today, burdens that are heavier than the burdens that people were carrying in the Arabian Peninsula during the time of jahiliyya.

The oppression that human beings are currently suffering from, the injustice that exists in human communities, the efforts to make materialistic tendencies dominant over the life of humanity, the different methods that are used to force spirituality out of the lives of human beings – these are the burdens that have been placed on the shoulders of humanity.

What humanity feels today in the era of industrial civilization and among the attractions of materialism, is more difficult and in certain cases more bitter than what people were feeling in the darkness of jahiliyya at the time of the emergence of Islam – the burden is heavier than the burden that humanity was carrying at that time.
