Virtues of the Prophet From Dala\'il An-Nubuwwah

Allah, the Almighty, the All-powerful informs us of the honourable status which He has granted the Prophet (peace be upon him) of the high regard in which he is held, and the elevated rank that he enjoys. This is a fact which is attested to by Him not addressing him to His Book, nor alluding to him, except as "Prophet or Messenger" — titles greater than which there are none — whereas He addressed other prophets, referring to them by only there names, and He did not mention them with these highest titles, except when the Messenger of Allah was being addressed with them, or mentioned among them. But when He referred to them individually, He did not address them, or speak of them, except by their names.

Using a title rather than a name is the highest form of veneration when addressing an esteemed personage. An angel, for example, is addressed thus: "Oh, angel.... " while a governor is called in this way: "Oh, governor... " and as for a Caliph ,one says: "Oh Caliph... " A cleric is addressed by in the following manner: "Oh rabbi... " or: "Oh,priest..." or: "Oh, scholar..." or: "Oh, faqih...". Thus Allah the Almighty the All powerful favoured His Prophet (PBUH) and attributed to him the highest status by saying to him:

"Oh, Prophet!, verily We have sent you as a witness and a bearer of glad tidings and a warner". (Surat Al-Ahzab 33:45)

" Oh, Prophet! Allah is sufficient for you..."  - (Surat Al-Anfal 8:64)
