The legacy of Prophets has always been an emphatic stamina for nations to overcome the crises of humanity from time to time. As crises or chaos standby with the existence of humanity. Human societies have always remained prone to crises and anarchies, whether social anarchy, economic anarchy, or moral anarchy. In order to relieve them from these anarchies, humanity at its essence has remained in the deep quest for peace, harmony, and stability from times immemorial. To attain and sustain the law and order in the society, Prophets played a significant role. In today’s world when the whole world is in deep chaos and confusion. The notions, like social harmony or social justice, has become enfeebled from the conscience of the human race.

The very concepts of Social harmony or social justice are merely seen on the Earth now, even in the Muslim lands it is unseen. Nevertheless, Social harmony is the voice of Muslim’s conscience. Both the primary texts, Quran and Sunnah are the epitome of Social Harmony.   In the twenty-first century now, when the whole world is in deep chaos and instability, it is time to look back at the SÊrah (Biography) of Prophet Muhammad, who established a justice society within the span of twenty-three years. Here the paper aims to highlight Prophet Muhammad as an apostle of social harmony and an envoy of social justice.
