In recent years, teaching has become a challenging activity due to modernization and globalization. Teachers exercise a variety of modern motivational techniques to deliver knowledge in educational institutes. Motivation is considered a central key in the process of teaching and learning. The present study aims to explore pedagogical motivational techniques used and lived by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh stands for peace be upon him) for teaching and education. Essentially, the personality of the Prophet (pbuh) was a pinnacle of teaching philosophy and educating. The present study is articulated employing an analytical review of some authentic traditions of the Prophet (pbuh) to address these motivational techniques. The findings reveal that his motivational techniques for teaching and educating are likely to use in the promotion of appropriate teaching and learning. The Prophet’s motivation methodology is monotheistic centric (tawhidi centric) with a high goal by addressing to the heart, mind and soul. It is in the peak level of perfection (ihsan). With applying such methodology, he made the most primitive and illiterate of peoples into the masters and teachers of the world in 23 years. Adhering to Prophetic motivational techniques for teaching and educating, teachers may play a more useful role in educational institutes. Overall, this study serves as a gateway for Muslim teachers and instructors to be effective in teaching and educating activities as well as researchers, educationists, and scholars to be motivated in exploring the personality of the Prophet (pbuh) as a universal teacher and educator.
