    Common characteristics and qualities of prophets are as follows:

    1. Sidq (Loyalty): All prophets tell the truth about the news that they receive from Allah. Telling lies is impossible for them.

    2. Amanah (Trust): Prophets are reliable and trustworthy people regarding fulfilling the duties that Allah gave them. Breach of trust is impossible for them.

    3. Tabligh (Conveying): Prophets convey the orders that are revealed to them by Allah to their nations exactly, without missing or adding anything. It is not in question for them to hide the news or to change it. Kitman, that is, the property of hiding the news is not present in prophets.

    4. Fatanah (Intelligence): Prophets have a superior mind and intelligence, a strong memory, a superior logic and ability of persuasion.

    Prophets have nothing to do with qualities like madness, heedlessness and ignorance.

    5. Ismah (Innocence): Prophets are free from all kinds of sins, whether secret or open, faults, bad deeds, and acts that are not suitable for prophets. People should not even think that prophets could commit sins.

    6. Mu’jiza (miracle): Allah gave all of His prophets the quality to produce some extraordinary things or events in order to enable them to prove that they are right and to cope with the objections and the obstinacy of the deniers. They are called miracles. Miracles are supernatural events. They are supernatural events that take place based on the power of Allah not prophets; for instance, the parting of the Red Sea by Hazrat Musa (Moses)...

    Characteristics and Traits of Muhammad by Duaa Anwar

    Muhammad's life is chronicled down to minor details in Islamic books. He led the people by way of example. His habits and manners were beyond compare, and his companions tried to imitate him. He was always known as the Honest, the Truthful. He often went to bed on an empty stomach because he'd given his food to someone more in need. Interestingly, he emphasized the nutritious value of foods such as honey, dates, milk, and olive oil. He ate with his right hand (throughout the Koran, the right hand is held in higher esteem than the left) and always pronounced Bismillah—meaning “In the name of Allah”—before eating.
    Muhammad immersed himself in worship of Allah, spending lengthy portions of the nights praying. Despite being promised Paradise, Muhammad was a humble person. He never looked down upon the poor or slaves, and he even accepted their invitations to meals, although he knew they would only serve him bread dipped in fat. He always made himself available for questions or guidance to anyone who sought it. He maintained a calm demeanor and never lost his temper or struck at anyone except in battle.
    The Prophet's virtues are too numerous to mention. The man was a role model for Muslims, setting standards that Muslims spend their lives trying to achieve. He was loved by Allah, as is said in the Koran: “Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O you who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation” (33:56).
