About Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)

  • Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born in 570 AD in the city of Makkah, Saudi-Arabia

  • His father, Abdullah, had died several weeks before his birth in the city now known as Al-Madinah, Saudi-Arabia

  • His mother died when he was six years old

  • He was raised by his paternal grand father Abdul-Muttalib and then later by his Uncle, Abu Talib

  • Long before granting the role of a prophet by Allah, Muhammad was popularly known as Sadiq (Truthful) and Al-Ameen (someone who can be trusted with people's trusts).

  • His first marriage (before prophethood) was at age 25 when he married to Khadijah, a rich widow who was 40 years of age.

  • At the age of 40, he was granted to be the final prophet by Allah. Allah started to reveal His final book through the Angel Gabriel (Jibraeel in Arabic), the Quran on prophet Muhammad at that time. The first verses revealed were the following:

"Recite in the name of your Lord who created! He created man from that which clings. Recite; and thy Lord is most Bountiful, He who has taught by the pen, taught man what he knew not." - Quran(Chapter 96)

  • Quran was revealed over a period of 23 years on prophet Muhammad (saws)
  • The mission of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon hime) was to get people at large to understand so that they may believe One True God (Allah), the Creator and sustainer of the universe, as taught by Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) and all other Prophets of God including Jesus, Moses, David and more. His mission was also to demonstrate and preach the laws of moral, ethical, legal, social conduct and matters of significance for the humanity at large.
