Our discussion about the environment in the Prophet’s life (Peace be upon him) must be preceded by juristic and linguistic subtleties. Juristically speaking, Islamic legislation imposes some measures and restrictions in every aspect of a Muslim’s life, and a Muslim has to adapt every development of his age to such measures and restrictions. This includes respecting the human mind that Allah the Almighty has given him; in addition to trusting his ability of extracting the rulings that would amend his affairs.
Anyone who learns about the prophetic message finds that it maintained human dignity and raised his status, as human beings, whether Muslims or not, are the offspring of Adam. Allah the Almighty honored all humanity by saying, “We have honored the sons of Adam, provided them with transport on land and sea; given them for sustenance things good and pure; and conferred on them special favors, above a great part of Our creation“. (Al-Israa, 17: 70)
Prof. Hamed bin Mahmoud Sefratah
The first thing that meets the eye about women in Muhammad's life (Peace be upon him) is the fact that he liberated her from blame for the Original Sin. She, alone, is not responsible for it. The Old Testament reads: "She took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate."
