Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is the founder of Islam, and the last
messenger of God.
How and Why Muhammad (Peace be upon him) Made a Difference?.
?Who is Muhammad Peace be upon him
Muhammad (Peace be upon him), was the first and only son of Abd Allah ibn Abdul Muttalib bin Hashim bin Abd Manaf ibn Qusai ibin killab bin Morra bin Kaab bin Loay bin Ghalib bin Fahr bin Mallik bin Nadhr bin Kinnana bin Khuzaymah bin Modrika bin Elias bin Mudhar Bin Nizar Bin Maada Bin Adnan.
His lineage extends to the Prophet of God Ismail son of the prophet Ibrahim (may peace be upon them).
Muhammad (Peace be upon him), was born 570 in Mecca, a mountain town in the high desert plateau of western Arabia.
His name derives from the Arabic verb hamida, meaning “to praise, to glorify.”
The childhood of the Prophet(Peace be upon him)
Mohammed (Peace be upon him)was raised by his mother Amina binto Waheb, who i keeping with Mecca tradition( Because they believed their infant would have a better chance of surviving in the desert) entrusted her -son at an early age to a wet nurse named Halima Essaadia -God please her-from the nomadic tribe of the Diyar Saad ibn Bakr. He grew up in the hill country, learning their pure classical Arabic And their good customs and morals.
At the age of five, his mother took him to Yathrib, but she took ill and died,She was buried in the village of Abwae on the Mecca-Medina Roads.
Muhammad (Peace be upon him) becomes an orphan and he was placed in the protection of his paternal grandfather, Abd Al-Muttalib. In this man’s care, Muhammad learned the rudiments of statecraft. Mecca was Arabia’s most important pilgrimage center and Abd Al-Muttalib its most respected leader but he also died two years later.
His paternal uncle Abu Talib took care of him, he used to accompany his uncle on trading journeys to gain experience in commercial trade, he later became a merchant.
Muhammad (Peace be upon him) used to pray alone in cave of Hiraa on Mount Jabal annour ( the mountain houses the grotto) , where he also received his first revelation.
As per beliefs, during one of his visits to the cave, the angel Gabriel (Peace be upon him) appeared before him and asked him to recite the verses “IQRAE BIISMI RABBIKA ALLADHI KHALQ” Read (to recite)! In the name of your Lord who created (all the exists). Suraht Al’Alaq .
These were the first words of God the purpose of this speech is to reflect on the importance of education in the process of personal development from an Islamic perspective.
The Hadith of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) also Confirms the value of knowledge. As the following Hadith narrated by Abu Horrairah (may Allah be pleased with him): “When a man dies, his acts come to an end, but three, recurring charity, or knowledge (by which people benefit), or a pious son, who prays for him (the deceased).”(Sahih Muslim, Hadith 4005)
The Quraish’s enmity
Initially overwhelmed by the significance of what was being revealed to him, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) found unflinching support in his wife Khadidja binto khouailid(may Allah be pleased with him) and slowly began to attract followers.
His strong monotheistic message angered Quraish (Tribal masters and many of the Meccan merchants), hey were afraid that trade, which they believed was protected by the pagan gods, would suffer.
From that point forward, Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was ostracized in Mecca. For a time, the influence and status of his wife(may Allah be pleased with him)and his uncle Abou Talib.
. After they died, however, Muhammad’s situation in Mecca became dire.
(El Hijra (Emigration
Emigration became the only solution for Muhammad (Peace be upon him)and his followers’ survival(may Allah be pleased with them).
In 622, they headed to Medina , another oasis town, (Distance between Mecca and Medina is 339 kilometers 211 miles) where they were promised freedom to practice their religion.
The move from Mecca to Medina is known as the hijra—the flight—and marks year 1 of the Islamic, or hidjri calendar.
Victory from God and conquest
Muhammad (Peace be upon him) continued to receive divine revelations and built an ever-expanding community around the new faith.
The conflict with the Quraish continued, but after several years of violent clashes, Mecca surrendered.
The prohet Muhammad(Peace be upon him) and his followers soon returned and took over the city, destroying all its pagan idols and spreading their belief in one God.
The light of Islam lit the whole world.
Our God ALLAH bless our Prophet Muhammad the greatest man on earth.
