In Islam, the Prophet Muhammad (saw) is considered to be a role model for Muslims to emulate in their daily lives and communal life. As such, the actions and behaviors of the Prophet during his lifetime, excluding those acts prior to his prophethood, are considered to be a source of guidance and inspiration for Muslims.

However, it is important to note that the actions and behaviors of the Prophet prior to revelation, when he was Muhammad ibn Abdullah, are not considered to be a source of legal authority (hujja) in Islam. The Qur'an and the hadith (sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad) are considered to be the primary sources of legal authority in Islam, and the actions and behaviors of the Prophet Muhammad are interpreted and understood in light of these primary sources.

Therefore, while the actions and behaviors of the Prophet Muhammad before revelation can serve as a valuable source of historic information for Muslims, they are not considered to be a source of legal authority in Islam. Instead, Muslims rely on the Qur'an and the hadith as the primary sources of guidance and legal authority in their daily lives and in the practice of their deen.
