Which Acts of Muhammad (a.s.) Should We take as an example?
• We don’t need to take everything as an example what Muhammad (a.s.) did, but only what he did as a Messenger (for example being just (al-Araf  29), not making money from religion (ash-Shuara  109), being merciful (Al Imran  159)…).
“The Messenger of God is certainly a good example [Uswatun Hasanatun] for those of you who have hope in God and in the Day of Judgment and who remember God very often.” (al-Ahzab  21):
• To obey the Messenger means to obey Allah (Al Imran  31; an-Nisa  80). The Messenger did not do/say anything other than what was revealed to him in the Qur’an (al-Haqqa  44-47).
• Therefore, the ones we should take as an example are the ones commanded in the Qur’an as a Messenger to Muhammad (a.s.).
Allah commands obedience to Muhammad as a Messenger. Not as a Nabi or not as the son of Abdullah!
Some of his personal choices that we do not need to do:
“He had a beard.” “He had a turban.” “He wore a thobe.” “His favourite food was brewis.”
