Obviously if any deed or event were in any way contrary to the teachings of Islam the holy prophet peace be upon him would have either prohibited or corrected it. The holy Quran is the final scripture which was revealed to the holy prophet peace be upon him whose mission it was to deliver and explain its contents accordingly the holy prophet peace be upon him explained its teachings and provided and example to the Muslims of how these teachings might be put into practice. Thus the life of the holy prophet peace be upon him is the best explanation of the holy Quran it says verily in the prophet of Allah you have a good example.
