Is it true that Prophet Muhammad is an excellent example for all ? Is it true that in order to follow his examples we need hadiths ? We have already shown from the Qur'an that it is fully detailed (click to read) and we have already seen from the Qur'an that Muhammad was not given any other revelation beside Qur'an for humanity (click to read). Even then, let us consider the very ayaat (verse) that is quoted by the sheikhs/imams/scholars to raise this issue :
"Indeed, in the messenger of God a good example has been set for you for he who seeks God and the Last Day and thinks constantly about God."
"There has been a good example set for you by Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people: We are innocent from you and what you serve besides God. We have rejected you, and it appears that there shall be animosity and hatred between us and you until you believe in God alone. Except for the saying of Abraham to his father: I will ask forgiveness for you, but I do not possess any power to protect you from God. Our Lord, we have put our trust in You, and we turn to You, and to You is the final destiny. Our Lord, do not let us become a test for those who rejected, and forgive us. Our Lord, You are the Noble, the Wise. Certainly, a good example has been set by them for those who seek God and the Last Day. And whoever turns away, then God is the Rich, the Praiseworthy."
"O you prophet, why do you make unlawful what God has made lawful for you, seeking to please your wives? God is Forgiver, Merciful."
