‘Abdul Muttalib’s condition differed greatly from the condition of the other Arabs at large. He would strongly prevent his children from any form of injustice and immorality. He would encourage them to adopt good character and shun evil behaviour.

‘Abdul Muttalib would enjoin the people to fulfil all vows and oaths and he forbade marriage between the mahaarim (such as marrying one’s sister, aunt, etc.). He would prohibit people from intoxicants, adultery, burying daughters alive and from performing Tawaaf around the Baytullah while naked. He would command that the hand of the thief be amputated. All these are issues which are strongly endorsed by the Qur’aan Kareem and Hadith Shareef as well.

On closer examination of the aforementioned incidents and conditions, it is clear that the closer the term of Nubuwwah (prophet hood) approached; the more evident became the improvement in good character, etiquette, blessings, spiritual light and miraculous feats. This was remarkably evident in the life of ‘Abdul Muttalib where, on numerous occasions, he saw truthful dreams and true dreams formed part of the inception of prophet hood. Whenever he was confronted with any serious issue, ‘Abdul Muttalib would be guided by true dreams and divine insight.
