    As-Salaam alaikum, In Ayat 4 of Surat Qalam of the Holy Qur'an (68:4), Allah Ta'ala, speaking about His Noble Messenger, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, says:-- "SURELY, YOU ARE UPON A TREMENDOUS CHARACTER (Khuluq azeem)" When Sayyada A'isha, may Allah be pleased with her, was asked about the character of the Messenger of Allah, she answered: "His character was the Qur'an." She said that because he was unique in character and that unique character had to bring together all noble character traits. Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, described that character as being "tremendous" just as He described the Qur'an in His words, "the tremendous Qur'an" (15:87). So, the Qur'an is his character, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam. If a person in the Community of the Messenger who has not met the Messenger of Allah desires to see him, let him look upon the Qur'an. When he looks upon it, there is no difference between looking upon it and looking upon Allah's Messenger. It is as if the Qur'an takes the configuration of a corporeal form which is named Muhammad Ibn Abdullah Ibn Abd al-Muttalib. The Qur'an is Allah's Speech and His Attributes, so Muhammad in his entirety is the attribute of Allah, "So he who obeys the Messenger, has obeyed Allah"- (4:80), since "He does not speak out of caprice" (53:3)...Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam.

    As-Salaam alaikum, Ma'amar Ibn Ahmad al-Asbahani, may Allah be Merciful to him, narrated in his 40 Hadith collection on the authority of Abdullah Ibn Mas'ud, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said:- The Messenger of Allah, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, censured us in his khutba. He said:-- "Oh Ummah of Muhammad ! A sage among the sages showed more understanding than you when his companions called him to pleasures and disobedience. He said, 'I am ashamed of my Lord to worship Him, hoping for Paradise as a reward, and therefore be like a bad labourer: if he is given his wage he works, and if he is not given it, he does not work. And I am ashamed of my Lord to worship Him out fear of the Fire and be also like a bad labourer: if he is fearful of his master he works, and if he is not, he does not work. I only worship Him for what He deserves, for He deserves to be worshiped.'
