Noted scholar Sahibzada Abdul Khair Muhammad Zubair Al-Azhari said that the life of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was a practical version of the sacred theoretical teachings of the glorious Quran.

“We see violence, unrest, broken families, anarchy, divide, dispute, armed clashes, turmoil, agitation crime and intolerance. This is because we have, somehow, begun losing our focus on “Uswae-Hassana” – the highest moral ideals acted upon and emphasized by the Prophet (PBUH).
