no others. just him.

I know a man who lost his parents but refused to be called an orphan. He was man enough to love a strong woman years older than him; worked for her and made her stronger, opened his heart to her, shared his fears with her, cleaned after himself, sewed his clothes, and was faithful to her till her last breath. He was good looking, courageous and fearless. He never judged anyone on their pasts or looks, and was moderate, open-minded and tolerant. His neighbor was Jewish and his cousin-in-law was a Christian priest. He was beaten and exiled when he was helpless. Was merciful when he became stronger. Intelligent, wise and a hard worker. He loved his daughters and grandchildren. His last will was of equality, piety and good action. This man is the Prophet Mohammed, a man worth looking up to - peace be upon him.
