The Jurisprudence of the Prophetic Biography
& A Brief History of the Rightly Guided Caliphate (2008 Edition)
Many are those who wrote about the life of the Messenger of God and analyzed it. They presented it as an exemplar of human greatness, insisting on giving people to understand that his conquests were nothing more than a revolution of the economic Left against an extremist Right and deluding them into believing that the ulterior motive which led the Messenger of God to do what he did was his desire to transfer
sovereignty from the hands of non-Arabs to those of the Arabs.
The weaving of fabricated conceptions, however, proved to be incapable of turning truth into falsehood. Hence, the clouds blown in by such
writings have dissipated and the bright truth has broken through once again. People in general and intellectuals in particular have remained certain that the greatness of the Messenger of God was a fruit of his prophethood and that the conquests and sovereignty he realized were the execution of a divine command rather than a quest of wealth or dominion.
No Muslim should attempt for a single moment to understand the life of the Apostle of God (pbuh) as that of a great genius, a dignified leader, or a worldly wise 'fox”. Such an attempt is nothing but wilfulness or a tampering with the major events with which the life of Muhammad (pbuh) was filled, and which demonstrated that he (pbuh) possessed all the qualities of nobility and of moral, mental, and psychological completeness.
However, all of this arose from a single, dominant reality in his life, namely, that he was a prophet sent by Almighty God. It is a futile enterprise to place the branches where the root once was, then ignore the fact that the root even exists! In any case, the only appropriate response to such an attempt is to draw people’s attention back to the root, and to the root alone.

Jawab al-Hafiz Abd al Azim al-Mundhiri an As'ilat fi al-Jarh wa
But whatever the situation may be, in the recollection of death there is reward and merit. For even the man engrossed in the world benefits from it by acquiring an aversion to this world, since it spoils his contentment and the fullness of his pleasure; and everything which spoils for man his pleasures and his appetites is one of the means of deliverance. From :Al Ghazali on The Remembrance of Death & the Afterlife From Ihya Ilum Ud Din
