Abstract

Making reforms in any society is a tedious task especially, in the case where reforms result in the transformation of whole society. In Pakistan, serious issue of morals and values prevails in the society. The dilemma of decline of any society or nation is that, once the process of decline in norms and values start, it took them deeper and deeper with the passage of time. The nation as a whole and our societies as a part are now in a deep pit of moral and ethical failure. Numerous efforts were observed in the past for the societal reforms but the nation is continuously in the process of declining. Being an ideological state, our society is demanding a complete overhaul for transformation and demands a winning strategy. As Muslims, we need to take guidance from the life of Mohammad whose teachings are time tested and serve as the best model for all ages. In this paper emphasis is given to unfold the effort of Mohammad that resulted in the reforming and complete transformation of Arab society. It is observed that we mostly prefer to talk about the good morals, values and ethical teachings of holy prophet Mohammad but rarely put our focus on the actions taken by him for this sacred mission. Moreover, few distinct characteristics of Islamic society are also presented to highlight the efforts required to instill them in society. Prophet Mohammad peace be upon him is the embodiment of how the mission of reformation in the society is done. Similarly, few insights from the scholars from Indian subcontinent are also presented to make this research more applied in Pakistan. The study will help both the individuals and the government officials in devising the strategy for reforming society and ultimately help in establishing of Islamic society in Pakistan. At few places history of Indian sub-continent is compared with the situation on Arabs to make the study more applied and relevant. In conclusion, some steps for the initiation of process of transformation are discussed briefly, as every Muslim is responsible for bringing positive change in the society. This may help individuals to take active part in the process of reformation of society especially in the establishment of Islamic society.
