He is unique regarding belief and other issues
1- He is unique in administration
Is it possible for a person who cannot read and write to make laws on his own and for those laws to govern people for 14 centuries and at least one fourth of the people in each century with justice? Definitely not!
Let us have a look at Hz. Muhammad (pbuh). The laws introduced by an illiterate person have governed people for 14 centuries and at least one fourth of the people in each century with justice. There is nothing similar to it in the world. The laws made by tens of jurists who were trained in law for years hardly remain in effect for 3 or 5 years. What is more, they cannot govern with justice.
We can explain this situation only with the fact that the laws introduced by Hz. Muhammad (pbuh) were revealed to him by Allah and that he is the Messenger of Allah
2- He is unique in guiding people
Do you think it is possible for an illiterate person to introduce a religion on his own and for this religion to be a guide for millions of people, a teacher for minds, a cleaner for hearts, a trainer for souls and a source for the development of spirits for 14 centuries and tofind millions of followers in each century?
Is there anything similar to it? Definitely not!
Let us have a look at Hz. Muhammad (pbuh) again: Islam, which emerged as a result of the deeds, words and acts of this illiterate person, has been the guide and reference for millions of people, the teacher and guide for minds, the illuminator and cleaner for hearts, the trainer for souls and source for the development and improvement of spirits; regarding these issues, there has not been and cannot be anything or anyone similar to him. If we do not accept his prophethood, how can we explain Islam and the revolution Islam made in hearts, spirits, minds and souls?
3- He is unique in worshipping
Do you think it is possible for an illiterate person to discover all kinds of worshipping and to be the best one in all kinds of worshipping? That is, if we ask a person who is unaware of worshipping like daily prayers, fasting, zakah (alms-giving), hajj (pilgrimage) to teach us how to perform them, can he do it? Definitely not! Let alone showing and teaching them, he cannot find names for them; he cannot discover all of those worshipping from A to Z on his own.
Let us have a look at Hz. Muhammad (pbuh) again: He is the best one regarding all kinds of worship in his religion; he has taqwa more than any other people; he fears Allah the most among people; he pays great attention even to the smallest details of worshipping and works hard to fulfill them; he performs worshipping perfectly from beginning to the end without imitating anybody; regarding these issues, there has not been and cannot be anything or anyone similar to him. If we do not accept the fact that all of this worshipping was taught him by Allah, how can we explain the worshipping people have performed with enthusiasm for 14 centuries by imitating him?
4- He is unique in supplication
Do you think it is possible for an illiterate person to discover all of the names and attributes of the owner of this realm and to use those names and attributes as an intercessor in his supplication? It is possible that nobody has been able to catch up with the supplication of an illietarte person for 14 centuries and that he was the leader in each century in supplication and describing his Lord? Definitely not?
Let us have a look at Hz. Muhammad (pbuh) again: He has so much knowledge about Allah and describes his Lord to such an extent in his thousands of supplications and even in one supplication called jawshan al-kabir (the great shield) that the people of knowledge and saints that have lived up to now have not been able to reach that level. That nobody can catch up with him in describing Allah shows that he is unique in supplication.
5- He is unique in courage
Is it possible for a person who is not supported by any power and who starts off alone to courageously convey the message of his religion to his powerful enemies without any hesitation and panic and to make his religion superior to other religions? Definitely not!
Let us have a look at Hz. Muhammad (pbuh) again: He showed so much endurance, perseverance and courage while conveying his religion and calling people to the truth that he did not show any signs of hesitation, panic and cowardice and he challenged the whole world on his own and coped with them by spreading Islam to all over the world though the big states and religions of that age, his own tribe and relatives and even his uncle were hostile to him; there has not been and cannot be anyone similar to him regarding conveying the religion and calling people to the truth. Can we explain the great power and courage of that person despite his loneliness and weakness by anything other than his trust in Allah and his reliance on Him?
6- He is unique in belief and creed
Is it possible for an illiterate person to discover all of the truths of belief and to be the best regarding each truth? Is it possible that nobody has been able to catch up with him in terms of belief in 14 centuries? Is it possible for him to do them by himself? Definitely not!
Let us have a look at Hz. Muhammad (pbuh) again: He has such an extraordinary power in belief, such wonderful knowledge, such miraculous progress and such a lofty creed illuminating the world that none of the thoughts and beliefs and the sciences of the spiritual leaders harmed his belief, creed and spirituality although all of them were against him, which proves that his belief is unique.
Such unique shari'ah, unmatched Islam, wonderful worshipping, extraordinary supplication, an invitation challenging the world in a person who has a miraculous belief cannot be a lie by any means and will never deceive people.
Then, he is the Messenger of Allah and the prophet of the end of time.
