Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry Islamabad, Feb 12 (IANS) Pakistani Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has said the holy Prophet never declared himself above the law and his practice was not mere private conduct but a detailed interpretation and application of his teachings.

He said this while addressing a conference Saturday at the Supreme Court premises organised by the Supreme Court Bar Association for celebrating the arrival of the last of the great messengers of almighty Allah, Geo News reported.

The emergence of Islam, said the chief justice, was a great leap forward for mankind, a great setback to ignorance, a big bang of enlightenment, a practical realisation of the ideals and a reform movement the fruits of which have benefited every soul.

It was a miracle, brought about by one man with the revelation which Allah had revealed to him, he said.

The chief justice further said “what the Prophet Muhammad achieved in his lifetime against heavy odds, and the change which he brought in the lives of the Arabs, was not short of a miracle”.

But the impact of his reforms and teachings did not remain confined to the borders of Arabia, the chief justice added.

It spread far and wide in all directions after him. The holy Prophet not only brought a political and social change, he also brought a revolution in thoughts.
