As-Salaam alaikum,
The Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, is the embodiment of all spiritual virtues. He more directly manifests the attributes of Allah Ta'ala than any other creature. He thus lives most fully in the state of Ihsan. The path of human perfection on which the Prophet walked, the path of love, is that of doing the good and beautiful in all things in this life. This is the path that leads, should Allah will, to Paradise where ultimately the lover of Allah will dwell beside Him-- just as we read in ayat 54/55 of Surat Qamar of the Holy Qur'an :--
".. the righteous will be in the midst of Gardens and Rivers.. in an assembly of Truth, in the Presence of A Sovereign Omnipotent."
One of the ways in which Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, acts as a role model for us, Muslims, is in the relative simplicity of his lifestyle and his lack of concern with material wealth and possessions. This simplicity of life gives to many after him in the Ummah their ascetical character, which led some to a life of voluntary poverty (faqar) or renunciation. And as we know, Faqr, is to burn one's nafs and desires, breath inward, soul and heart in the love of Allah Ta'ala.
