Abstract

It is the belief of every Muslim that the personality of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) is so comprehensive that there is no aspect of the human life about which the Prophetic guidance and example could not be found. There are hundreds of thousands of government servants in Pakistan who are mainly Muslims. They are obligated to give the rights that Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) has upon them. This article will try to discuss those rights, their implications and how a government servant, being senior or junior, should willingly and voluntarily give these rights. By using inductive, descriptive and analytical methods the author will try to derive these rights from the holy Qur'an and authentic Sunnah and then give suggestions to the government servants in the light of the divine texts.
