who is prophet mohamed ?

Muhammad was born in Makkah in
the year 570. Since his father died
before his birth and his mother
died shortly thereafter, he was
raised by his uncle who was from
the respected tribe of Quraysh. He
was raised illiterate, unable to read
or write, and remained so till his
death. His people, before his
mission as a prophet, were
ignorant of science and most of

up, he became known to be
truthful, honest, trustworthy,
generous, and sincere. He was so
trustworthy that they called him
the Trustworthy.1 Muhammad was
very religious, and he had long
detested the decadence and
idolatry of his society.

sixty-three, 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.
Islam calls for faith in only one God,
Who is the only one worthy of
The 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 God
and His reward in the Hereafter.
Moreover, in all his actions and
dealings, he was ever mindful and
fearful of God.
