Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the last messenger of God to Humanity. He was chosen by Allah to be the representative and living example of the final revelation. We all should love and respect him.  Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is not considered to be divine but he, as all other Prophets, is a human being.

The Qur’an emphasizes that Allah has chosen in the Prophet (peace be upon him) an example for Muslims to follow and that obeying him is the same as obeying Allah. The Prophet (peace be upon him) only spoke regarding guidance as Allah guided him to say.

It is He who has sent among the unlettered a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and wisdom – although they were before in clear error. (Al-Jumu`ah 62:2)
