Who was the Prophet Muhammad? (Pbuh)
In brief, Muhammad (Pbuh) was born in a
noble tribe of Mecca in Arabia in the year 570
AD. His ancestry goes back to Prophet Ishmael
(Pbuh), son of Prophet Abraham (Pbuh). His
father died before his birth and his mother died
when he was six.
He did not attend a formal school since he
was raised first by a wet nurse as it was the
custom in those days, and then by his
grandfather and uncle.
As a young man, he was known as a righteous
person who used to meditate in a cave. At age
40, he was given the Prophet Hood when the
angel, Gabriel, appeared in the cave.
Subsequently, the revelations came over 23
years and were compiled in the form of a book
called the Quran which Muslims consider as
the final and the last word of God.
The Quran has been preserved, unchanged, in
its original form and confirms the truth in the
Torah, the psalms and the Gospel.
