All prophets gave guidance. main aim of the mission of prophets as mentioned by Prophet. Muhammad when he said, “I have been sent for the perfection of morals.” I have adapted the.
In the final major confrontation, The Battle of the Trench and Siege of Medina, Muhammad and his followers prevailed and a treaty was signed. The treaty was broken by the Meccan allies a year later. By now, Muhammad had plenty of forces and the balance of power had shifted away from the Meccan leaders to him.
In , the Muslim army marched into Mecca, taking the city with minimum casualties. Muhammad gave amnesty to many of the Meccan leaders who had opposed him and pardoned many others.

When we hold internal beliefs or expectations or make predictions about someone, we often behave toward them in a manner consistent with those beliefs and expectations. For example, if we are told that someone we are about to meet is a wonderful and interesting person with a sparkling personality, we will likely make sure we talk with them, be friendlier than usual, and ask lots of questions. Thus, their behavior follows our actions.
Whether we are consciously aware of it, our beliefs and expectations of someone will seep into our communications with them. This phenomenon can be seen in how stereotypes are formed and reinforced. An individual may be told about how people of a certain race behave, and then form a global assumption about all people of that race.
The next time they see someone of the same race, they will likely treat them as a person who behaves according to their assumption.
It can be dangerous, in this way, as a social issue in need of mitigation. From research on the Pygmalion effect, we know that when individuals are treated as if they are hardworking and capable people, they are more inclined to work hard and believe in their own capability.
Conversely, when people are treated as unfriendly or intellectually inferior, they are more likely to act in an unfriendly manner or to doubt their intelligence and keep their deeper thoughts to themselves Aaronson, Read the quotes below to help you remember the importance of your own beliefs and expectations about your abilities.
The specious validity of the self-fulfilling prophecy perpetuates a reign of error. Now that you know about how our beliefs and assumptions can impact our own behavior and the behavior of those around us, be sure to keep this phenomenon in mind—especially in your communication with others and in your own self-talk.
Negative thoughts can become reality, but the good news of the self-fulfilling prophecy is that positive thoughts can become reality as well.
