☼Founder of Islam....☼

☼Founder of Islam & Muslims worship☼

Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born in Mecca in the year 570. since his father died before his birth and his mother shortly afterwards, he was raised by his uncle from the respected tribe of Quraysh. As he grew up, he became known for his truthfulness, generosity and sincerity, so that he was sought after for his ability to arbitrate in disputes. The historians describe him as calm and meditative. Muhammad (PBUH) was of a deeply religious nature, and had long detested the decadence of his society. It became his habit to meditate from time to time in the cave of Hira near Mecca. At the age of 40, while engaged in meditative retreat, Muhammad (PBUH) received his first revelation from god through the angel Gabriel. This revelation, which continued for 23 years, is known as the Noble Koran. As soon as he began to recite the words he heard from Gabriel, and to preach the truth which god had revealed to him, he and his small group of followers suffered bitter persecution, which grew so fierce that in the year 622 god gave them the command to emigrate. This event, the Hijra ‘migration’, in which they left Mecca for the city of Medina, marks the beginning of the Muslim calendar. After several years, the prophet and his followers were able to return to Mecca, where they forgave their enemies and established Islam definitively. Before the prophet died at the age of 63, the greater part of Arabia was Muslim, and within a century of his death Islam had spread to Spain in the west and as far east as China. He died with less than 5 possessions to his name. While Muhammad (PBUH) was chosen to deliver the message, he is not considered the “founder” of Islam, since Muslims consider Islam to be the same divine guidance sent to all peoples before. Muslims believe that all the prophets from Adam, Noah, Moses, Jesus etc. were all sent with divine guidance for their peoples. Every prophet was sent to his own people, but Muhammad (PBUH) was sent to all mankind. Muhammad (PBUH) is the last messenger sent to deliver the message of Islam. Muslims revere and honour him for all he went through and his dedication, but they do not worship him. “O Prophet, verily we have sent you as a witness and a bearer of glad tidings and as one who invites unto god by his leave and as an illuminating lamp.” (Koran, 33:45-6).
