Facts About Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

Today when the world is going through war time, many terrorist activities are targeting young and adults in different parts of the world. in most of these activities unfortunately Muslims are caught up as suicide bombers or terrorists in short. My aim behind writing this hub is to just give the most accurate and original information regarding our most beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

  1. Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) was born in Mecca. The year was 570 A.D. Shortly after his birth his mother died, his father was already dead before his birth. So he became orphan. During this time his uncle Aboo Talib and his grand father Abdul-mutlib took care of him.
  2. At the age of nine he started going on trade trips along with his uncle. He met with people of different nations and religions during those trips. in one of his trip he met a Christian scholar. The scholar said to his uncle that he will one day do something great and I can see it because all the trees, mountains and sea are in the bow in front of him.
  3. When he got 25, he got proposal from Khadija for marriage which he accepted and thus they got married. Khadija was one of the richest woman in the Mecca and Prophet Muhammad did trade for her. Khadija was actually inspired by the virtues, honesty, truthfulness and faithfulness of the Prophet. Khadija was 40 years of age at the time of marriage and Prophet Muhammad was just 25.
  4. They had sons but they died in their childhood.
  5. As people of Mecca at that time were involved in many sinful activities, like they killed their daughters, did drinking, rape, and killing of innocent people, Prophet Muhammad did not admired those activities at all and to have solitude and peace he went to cave Hira.
  6. Once when he was in the cave Hira he saw Angel Gabriel there. The angel said to him "read in the name of Allah", Prophet Muhammad replied that I can neither read nor write I am an illiterate. The angel touched his bosom and said again the same. He read it this time. The angel said that God has chosen you for the prophet-hood.
  7. Prophet Muhammad came back home and told Khadija about the incidence of cave Hira. He said to her that either I am a Prophet or else I am gone mad. Khadija soothed him and said not to worry and she believed on him and got converted to Islam.
  8. After this Angel Gabriel came again with revelations and thus he started preaching Islam to people. In the start only few people got converted. Most of them were either very young, women or else slaves.
  9. Pagans and Non-Muslims did harm to Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and other Muslims by different means but Prophet Muhammad had patience and perseverance. He kept determined to his mission and never get back because of the dangers in the way. When enemies tried to kill Prophet, Allah ordered Muhammad to travel to a new place and thus Muhammad (p.b.u.h) along with other Muslims traveled to Medina. He was welcomed there because they got inspired by the equality, justice and honesty of Muslims. Many of them converted to Islam and then the first Mosque was built there.
  10. After that Muslims had several battles with the people of Mecca. In 632 A.D. Muslims successfully defeated the non-Muslims of Mecca and till then most of the Arab was converted to Islam. Those who fought with the Muslims if remain alive were never made captives or slaves. After 23 years of Prophet-hood Muhammad (p.b.u.h) died and after his death Islam spread to other places too because of the efforts of his Caliphs. The revelations of Allah on Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) were compiled in Quran after his death.

The amazing thing about Muhammad (p.b.u.h) although born in the year 570, his traditions carry on to all Muslims even today. Mohammad (p.b.u.h.) married a six year old girl but refrained from having sex with her until she was nine. (Sahih Bukhari Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88 )

The Ayatollah Khomeini (1979) the founder and supreme leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran set out laws for Muslims and he said, “ A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. You can find this quote in the Ayatollahs “Little Green Book.”

I find the religion rather odd to say the least.

Thank you for your comment Lizzee.

Ayatollah Khomeini might have wrote something like that in his book but Ayatollah Khomeini is not the founder of Islam and like anyother human being he can be wrong or right. Islam never says any such thing which you stated here. Islam does not allow marrying a girl who is still a child. If Ayatollah said something like that he is downright wrong.

Prophet Muhammad did not marry a girl only 6 years of old. He married Sayeda Khadija when she was already a widow and did not marry to another girl until he was 54 so if he had any desires he would not have married a widow who was older than him. He married Syeda Aisha because it was Allah's revelation to him-it was Allah's will not his.

Now as you said that Syeda Aisha did not attain puberty when she got married, this is not reality. She was young when she got married and according to Islamic laws a girl who has attained puberty can get married. Science says the same. In western culture what girls do even they are not young-I think you better know it- so why not a girl can get married when she is young.

It was nice reading your comment because at least you considered knowing about Islam but please do not get guided by wrong information.

The hadith tell us that the Arab pagans thought Aisha was too young, even at nine to have sexual intercourse. Are you claiming that the hadith is not genuine?

gulnazahmad profile image

gulnazahmad 5 years ago from Pakistan Author

Not all Hadiths are genuine and I dont know in which Hadith you read it I am a muslim and I have never read any such hadith. In westeren countries girls have sex before they get even young so what will you say about it. Hazrat Ayesha was a noble lady and she was married to the the most noble man on earth Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Fake hadiths have nothing to do with Islam and Muslims.

Yeah Umar I agree with you this is a very short list of facts about Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and you can add much more than this but I have made my effort and that is it. I just want people to have accurate knowledge about Islam and Prophet Muhammad regardless of whether it is a single word or a whole book.

Fayaz I hope it is beneficial for those people too who think that Muhammad (peace be upon him) spread Islam by sword and was not a peaceful muslim. Thanks for leaving your comment.

Fares I wish that I keep spreading the truth and genuineness of Islam and Muhammad to the world.

Islam it is my pleasure to know that another Muslim brother liked the article. It means that I have written something which is really valuable. Though this is the smallest effort a Muslim could make to promote the truth of his beloved prophet. And I am sure gonna join this group.

Mohammad Arif from Afghanistan 5 years ago

Mashallah Gulnaz Jan. You are a great person by talking about Mohammad PBUH. Science today says that everything Mohammad PBUH said is right. Islam is a great religion but some Muslims are not following Islam as it is. Western and USA people know that Islam is religion of creature of earth but they will never accept it unless Allah Jala Jalahu soften his her heart.

mohammad is just the same as gaddafi or saddam hussain or any other evil dictator that rules through fear and intimidation, the things mohammad did in the quran were nothing but evil and the work of the anti christ, you don,t get jesus preaching hate like your false prophet does.

Re: the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM)I guess we'd have to define faith. Simply put, to me faith is a stonrg belief, i.e. confidence.I am confident that the FSM is not real. I place my confidence, my faith in that belief that he is not real.Hence, that is what I mean when I say it takes faith to believe there is no god just as much as it takes faith to believe there is a god.I am confident God is and that he is Yahweh. You are confident that god does not exist.I have no problem with that.And I believe we each should be allowed to examine the choices and decide for ourselves what we believe, what we will place our confidence in.I find your blog very interesting. I've never had any faith/confidence in the Mormon teachings. Nor in many other teachings/beliefs that I have examined.The one I do have confidence in and follow is what I practice.I am glad we all have the free will and the freedom to choose.It is bondage otherwise. I refuse to be in bondage to anything or anyone.I love what Jesus proclaimed:'you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free'.As a follower of Jesus, anytime another who claims to follow him and tries to put me into the bondage of their interpretation of his teachings I reject what they say.As well, those who would try to put me into bondage and force me to believe what they believe I will rebuff as well.Free will to believe as I choose is an inalienable right.And it follows I have no right to force another to believe as I believe.
