1. Read this once, you will get to know who was Last and final Messenger peace be upon him.
Ibn ‘Abbaas Radiyallahu ‘Anhu says:
“Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam was the most generous among people in performing good deeds No one could compare with him in generosity. He himself led a simple life, but in giving he would put a king to shame. At a time of great need a woman presented him a sheet, and he wore it as he was in need of it. A person came to him, and asked him for it, he presented the sheet to that person. Taking of loans and fulfilling the needs of others, when the creditors came, and if something had come from somewhere, he would pay the debts, and did not go home till everything was given to the needy. There exists many incidents of this nature, so much so that it is not possible to enumerate them). Particularly in the month of Ramadaan, he would be more generous till the month ended. (His generosity in this month exceeded all the other months). In this month when Jibra-eel ‘Alayhis Salaam came and recited the Qur-aan to Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam, at that time his generosity exceeded the wind that brings forth heavy rains”.

3. You can never match this type of Character.
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
While I was walking with the Prophet (ﷺ) who was wearing a Najrani outer garment with a thick hem, a bedouin came upon the Prophet (ﷺ) and pulled his garment so violently that I could recognize the impress of the hem of the garment on his shoulder, caused by the violence of his pull. Then the bedouin said, “Order for me something from Allah’s Fortune which you have.” The Prophet (ﷺ) turned to him and smiled, and ordered that a gift be given to him.

You can’t match this character ever. Note that he was not just a leader, he was Messenger of Allah. And these filthy people talk bad about him?

“I remained in the service of Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam for ten years. He never once told me ‘Oof’. When I did something, he never asked me, why did you do so? When I did not do a certain task, he never asked me why I did not do it. Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam had the best character among all people. (and also possessed the most excellent features, so much so,) that I never felt a silk cloth, nor pure silk, nor any other thing softer than the palm of Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam. Nor did I smell any musk or any other fragrance, more sweet smelling than the sweat of Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘Alayhi Wasallam”.
