There is no doubt that the life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a beacon of guidance for mankind, whether it is related to worship or dealings. There is no aspect of life that is not covered by the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH). Therefore, we also get important guidance and principles from the Seerat-un-Nabi to make the society better. When we look at the social life of the Prophet (PBUH), we find the principles of Seerat-un-Rasool (PBUH) that are common for all people, such as avoiding pretense and formalities, making honesty a necessary part of life, keeping the covenants made with people, and learning to sacrifice personal rights for the sake of social good. These are very important principles for a good society. Similarly, when we look at how social relations should be with the people of faith in the light of Seerat-un-Nabi (PBUH), we get guidance to strive for the well-being of Muslims, to take special care of Muslims, to treat Muslims with humility and respect, and to honor them. This also fulfills the mutual rights of the believers. In society, where there are believers, there are also hypocrites and disbelievers. Therefore, Seerat-un-Nabi provides us with specific guidelines for dealing with different types of hypocrites and non-Muslims in society, such as confronting the hostile disbelievers and terrorists with severity and protecting Islam from their enmity by guarding its ideological boundaries, especially from atheism and apostasy.
