Prophet Muhammad : The Seal of The Messengers 

Understanding Islam  

Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, was born in Makkah in the year 570 CE. As an orphan, he was raised by his uncle who was from the respected tribe of Quraysh.

As he grew up, he became known to be truthful, honest, generous, and sincere. So much so, that they called him ‘The Trustworthy’. Muhammad was very pious, and he had long detested the decadence and idolatry of his society. At the age of 40, Muhammad received his first revelation from Allah through the Angel Gabriel.

The revelations of the words of Allah continued for 23 years, and they are collectively known as the Qur’an. 

As soon as he began to recite the Qur’an and preach the truth which Allah had revealed to him, he and his small group of followers suffered persecution from the society around them. The persecution grew so fierce that in the year 622 CE Allah gave them the command to migrate to Madinah.

The revelations of the words of Allah continued for 23 years, and they are collectively known as the Qur’an. 


After several years, Muhammad and his followers returned to Makkah and, having peacefully conquered it, so they forgave their enemies who had once persecuted them relentlessly. Before Muhammad died at the age of 63, the greater part of the Arabian Peninsula had become Muslim, and within a century of his death Islam had spread to Spain in the West and as far East as China. Among the reasons for the rapid and peaceful spread of Islam was the truth and clarity of its doctrine.

Prophet Muhammad was a perfect example of an honest, just, merciful, compassionate, truthful, and brave human being. Though he was a man, he was far removed from all evil characteristics and strove solely for the sake of Allah and his reward in the Hereafter. Moreover, in all of his actions and dealings, he was ever mindful and fearful of God.

Among the reasons for the rapid and peaceful spread of Islam was the truth and clarity of its doctrine. 

“O Mankind, the messenger has come to you with the truth from your Lord, so believe; it is better for you. But if you disbelieve – then indeed, to Allah belongs whatsoever is in the heavens and earth. And ever is Allah Knowing and Wise.” (Qur’an 4: 170)
