By the time of the Prophet’s death, the Islamic community based in Medina was the most vibrant moral, social, and political force in the Arabian peninsula. The Successors (“Caliphs”) When Prophet Muhammad died after a brief illness in 632 his followers were distraught. Abu Bakr, one of his closest companions, declared to them, “If anyone worships Muhammad, [know that] Muhammad is dead. ” His goal was to refocus attention on the message, rather than on the Messenger. Muslims maintain the deepest respect for Muhammad and continue to be inspired by his example.

They like to be seen [praying] but [then] do not give charity” (107:2–8). The Quran balances these warnings with sympathy for the weaknesses of human nature: “Indeed, the human being is born impatient. When evil touches him he is anxiety-ridden, and when good things happen to him, grudging” (70:20–2). ’ No; you do not honor orphans or work for the wellbeing of the poor, you take over [others’] inheritance and are overly attached to wealth” (89:16–21).

But the ideals toward which the community should strive were clearly set forth in this case. Applying the ideals in the modern world requires the abolition of slavery, a goal that has largely been achieved in the Muslim world.
