Who is the PROPHET MUHAMMAD Peace be upon him ?
Muhammad (peace be upon him) 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 unlettered, 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 them were unlettered. As he grew up, he became known to be truthful, honest, trustworthy, generous, and sincere. He was so trustworthy that they called him the Trustworthy. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was very religious, and he had long detested
the decadence and idolatry of his society.
