The Prophet Of Mercy
(Sall Allah-o-Alaihe Wasallm)
Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) the last Prophet Of Allah, was born at Makkah in 571 A.D. His father's name was Abdullah and mother's name was Aamna. His father died few months before his birth while her mother died when he was only six. After her, he was brought up by his loving grandfather, Abdul Muttalib. After the death of his grandfather, his uncle Abu Talib looked after him more loving than his own children.
A few days after his birth he was put under the care of a nurse, Daai Haleema Saadia. She took him to her desert home and looked after him for four years. The child brought luck and happiness to the family of his nurse.
When he was forty the angel Gabriel brought him the first message of God. He declared that he was a Prophet of Allah. He began to preach Islam. In those days the people of Arabia worshipped idol. They thought that these figures of stone and wood were gods. He told the people that idols were not Gods. He asked the people to worship one true God the Allah Almighty Who is the Creator of this universe. He asked them not to tell lies not to drink not to gamble and not to bury their daughters alive.
But the infidels did not like these things. This thing filled them with anger. They opposed him and his followers. They began to torture them. In spite of all that Islam was progressing day by day. At last his opponents decided to murder hum. But God helped him to migrate to Madina which later became the centre of Islamic State.
Many battles were fought against the infidels. Soon Islam overcame the whole Arabia. The Holy Prophet (SAW) conquered Makkah after few years. But he did not leave Madina. Then he destroyed their idols that were placed in the Holy Ka'ba.
The Holy Prophet passed away when he was 63. His sacred tomb is situated in Madina. He showed the right way to the people of the whole world. He made his followers honest pious, kind and truthful. We should follow the teachings of this great Prophet (SAW).
