The Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) was born on the 12th of Rabiul Awwal, 570 AD at Makkah. His father’s name was Hazrat Abdullah, who died nearly six months before his birth. The name of the mother of our Holy Prophet (SAW) was Bibi Amna. She also died when he was only six years old. His loving grandfather Hazrat Abdul Muttalib also died before he was eight years old and his uncle Abu Talib became his guardian.
Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) was such a truthful and honest person from his childhood that the people of Makkah Called him “Sadiq” and “Amin”.
When Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) was twenty-five years old he married Hazrat Khadija (RA) who was a very honorable lady of Makkah.
At the age of forty, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) announced that he was the last Prophet of Allah. At that time people of Makkah were idol-worshippers. When Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) forbade them to worship the stone-gods and told them to worship Allah who is All-Powerful and Merciful, they turned against him and began to tease him. But he (SAW) continued his preachings. At last, the Holy Prophet (SAW) migrated to Madina where he laid the foundation of an Islamic Society. Our Holy Prophet (SAW) and his followers conquered Makkah. The Holy Quran is the last book of Allah which was revealed upon Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). The Holy Quran contains instructions and orders of Allah for all human beings especially for the Muslims. The Muslims of the world are followers of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW).
The Holy Prophet (SAW) passed away at the age of sixty-three years in Madinah-e-Munawwara.
