Biography of Prophet Muhammad

Bismi Allahi arrahmani arraheem
In the name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful

We were once lost in the gloom of ignorance
Plunged deep in the heart of unawareness
Worshipping dumb idols made of stone
“Who would resurrect us, flesh and bone?”

We would shed blood for petty reasons
Remaining in war throughout the seasons
We would bury baby girls, no mercy did we feel
Nothing seemed cruel to those hearts of steel

And just when it seemed that we were doomed
In front of our eyes our destruction loomed
Allah, the Merciful and the Almighty
Sent us Muhammad (saww), Guidance, a Mercy

22 April, 571 A.D / 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal, 1st year of the Elephant:

Khatm-al-Anbiya (The Seal of Prophecy) was born in Makkah. The blessed being made his appearance from the person of Sayyida Amina (RA) who diverted totally the very stream of human history who uplifted humanity from the lowest pit of degradation and raised it to the zenith of glory and grandeur who heralded a new message of peace and prosperity for the suffering people and bestowed upon them a panacea for all pains and ills. He was named MUHAMMAD “the Praised one” or “he who is glorified”. The new-born was of the Banu Hashim clan of the Quraysh and orphaned before birth. His father Hazrat Abdullah (RA) had died before his birth. According to the custom of Arab noblemen, infants were given into the charge of Bedouin women who suckle and nourish the infants. This blessed child entrusted to Hazrat Halima Sadia (RA) for nourishing.

576 A.D:

He was five years old when Hazrat Halima Sadia (RA) returned him to his mother Sayyida Amina (RA)

577 A.D:

He was six years old when his mother Sayyida Amina (RA) taken him to Madina for a visit. She wanted him to see the grave of his father. It was a long journey, when they returned and encamped at a place named Abwa, Sayyida Amina (RA) fell ill and in a few days she was died.

In this strange and lonely place, young Muhammad (saww) saw the last agonies of the nearest and the best-loved person he knew, with no one to share his baffled and piercing grief, except a slave girl named Hazrat Umm-e-Aiman (RA).The blessed child was fatherless when he left on this journey and motherless when he returned.

577 A.D:

After the burial of Sayyida Amina (RA), Hazrat Umm-e-Aiman (RA) returned young Muhammad (saww) to his grandfather. Abdul Muttalib took the responsibility of his grandson.

579 A.D:

He was only eight years old when his grandfather died. After his grandfather’s death, his uncle Abu Talib became his guardian. In later years, he was brought up by his uncle.

583 A.D:

At the age of twelve, he went to Syria for trade along with his uncle. He was then growing up and had begun to look at men and things around with a curious and observant eye. In later years, Abu Talib trained him to be a merchant. With the passage of time, he established himself as a man of high moral status and a trustworthy trader, thus he come to be known as Al-Sadiq (the truthful one) & Al-Ameen (the trusted one)

590 A.D:

At the age of twenty, He took part Harb-ul-Fijar (Sacrilegious War) between the Quraysh and Banu Qais Élan over a trade conflict. He took part in that war on behalf of Quraysh.

590 A.D:

Four months after Harb-ul-Fijar (Sacrilegious War) a peace treaty called Hulf-ul-Fudul (oath of virtue or the pact of chivalry) was renewed by Quraysh aimed protection of trade caravans passing Makkah, being supported by Hazrat Muhammad (saww).

March, 595 A.D / Zilhaj:

At the age of twenty five, he became the business partner of Sayyida Khadija (RA) a wealthy and prestigious lady of Makkah. She requested him to take her trade articles of merchandise to Syria and he accepted this offer. His visit to Syria proved very successful. Sayyida Khadija (RA) was so stuck by his good sense, his honesty and his blameless ways that she proposed him by her close friend named Nafeesa. He accepted her proposal after the consultation with his uncle.

September, 595 A.D:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) married Sayyida Khadeja (RA). He was twenty five then and Sayyida Khadeja (RA) was forty. Hazrat Muhammad (saww) had now a home of his own and no further worries regarding his living. Sayyida Khadeja (RA) played a vital role in prophet’s life; she was honored to be the first wife of the prophet and during her life time, the only one. (She spent 25 years with prophet) she bore Hazrat Muhammad (saww) two sons named Sayyidna Qasim and Sayyidna Abdullah (who both died in infancy) and four daughters named Sayyida Zainab (RA) Sayyida Ruqayya (RA) Sayyida Umm-e Kulsoom and Sayyida Fatima (RA).

598 A.D:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) begun to spend long hours in solitary meditation into a cave he had found in mountain of Hira nearby. Here he pondered and meditated in long and lonely vigils. His periods of loneliness became more frequent and his vigils lengthened as he approached the age of forty.

599 A.D:

At the age of twenty eight, the first baby was born who was named Qasim (RA). This child died in infancy.

600 A.D:

At the age of thirty, his first daughter Sayyida Zainab (RA) was born.

603 A.D:

At the age of thirty three, his second daughter Sayyida Ruqayya (RA) was born.

604 A.D:

At the age of thirty four, his third daughter Sayyida Umm-e-Kulsoom (RA) was born.

605 A.D:

At the age of thirty five, he took part in rebuilding of Khana-e-kaaba and settled a quarrel over the placing of Hajar-e-Aswad (Black stone) and saved Quraysh from a certain blood shed. For their idolatry and pagan customs, the Arabs still revered the Kaaba as the holy of holies. In the Kaaba there is a black stone held to be particularly sacred. When they decided to rebuild Kaaba, there was furious wrangling over the Hajar-e-Aswad (Black stone) whoever was chosen to put it back into its place in the structure, it was felt, would acquire a pride and precedence that would humble all competitors. Every chief of Quraysh therefore, claimed the honour. The quarrel waxed hot and bloodshed seemed imminent. At last they asked Hazrat Muhammad (saww) to arbitrate and settle the issue among them. He spread out his wrap on the earth, placed the holy stone in the middle and asked all the claimants to lift the wrap and carry it to the Kaaba. Then he picked up the Hajar-e-Aswad (Black stone) himself and fixed it in its place. Thus much bloodshed was avoided.

605 A.D:

At the age of thirty five, his fourth daughter Sayyida Fatima (RA) was born.

12 February 610 A.D / Ramadan-ul-Mubarak:

The beginning of the Prophet’s mission; at the age of forty, he began to receive the revelation of Quran in a cave (Hira) at the summit of a mountain (Jabal-e-Noor) outside Makkah. Where the prophet (saww) was engaged in meditation on one of the last nights of the month of Holy Ramadan, Gabriel (A.S) appeared to him with the first revelation the beginning of verse 96:

“Proclaim! (Or read!) In the name of thy Lord and Cherisher, Who created,

Created man, out of a (mere) clot of congealed blood,

Proclaim! (Or read!) And thy Lord is Most Bountiful,

He who taught (the use of) the pen,

Taught man that which he knew not.” (96:1-5)

Gabriel (A.S) disappeared then and Hazrat Muhammad (saww) came home, strangely troubled, and said to his wife:

“Cover me up, Khadeja, cover me up!”

After a while, he became calmer and spoke his wife of the divine commendments revealed to him. Sayyida Khadija (RA) comforted him:

“Fear not, my noble one, but rejoice.

God will not forsake you in this affair nor expose you to shame.

For you are good and kind a truthful. You are hospitable to the passing stranger;

You aid and comfort the poor and the lowly, and support the virtuous in righteous deeds.”

Sayyida Khadija (RA), without a moment’s hesitation, accepted the truth of his words. She thus became the first to believe that the prophet (saww) had indeed been charged with a divine mission, followed by Sayyidna Ali (RA) his cousin, and Hazrat Zayd b. Harith (RA) his freed servant. The first convert from outside the family circle was Sayyidna Abu Bakr (RA) a respected merchant and best friend of Muhammad (saww). After this, quietly and unobtrusively, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) went round preaching, relating to whomsoever would listen or seemed likely to accept, the message and the commandments he had received. Thus three years passed. These three years produced only forty followers for his faith. These forty are known as Al-Sabiqun-al-Awwalun (the First and foremost)

614 A.D / 4th Nabawi:

At the beginning of the fourth year of revelation, Devine message came:

“And admonish thy nearest kinsmen” (26:214)

To act upon this Devine order, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) arranged a feast in which he invited his family members, his clan Banu Hashim. The feast is to be known as Dawah-Dhul-Asheerah (the feast of the nearest kinsmen). At the end of this feast, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) declared that there is no god but Allah (swt) who chose him as his messenger. The meantime Hazrat Muhammad (saww) asked the guests to give up the paganism and to worship the one and the true God. His family members listened to him with growing anger; some of them shouted abuses at him when he insulted their gods. Abu Lahab one of his uncles who later became a violent enemy of Islam was particularly harsh in his words. By and large the Banu Hashim paid no heed to his words, nor did they give them too much importance.

614 A.D / 4th Nabawi:

Few days after Dawah-Dhul-Asheerah (the feast of the nearest kinsmen) the Devine message came:

“Whatever is commanded and ordained, proclaim it openly.” (15:94)

So Hazrat Muhammad (saww) climbed the hill of safa and called out to the people of Makkah. When a goodly crowd had collected, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) proclaimed the divine message openly, he first of all swore to his own truthfulness and good faith. Then he asked them to abjure false gods, to worship no one except the one true God, to abstain from promiscuity and lewdness, to live in purity and virtue to treat one another with kindness and consideration, to forsake all suppressions and all pagan practices. The people of Makkah listened to him with growing anger; they shouted abuses at him when he insulted their gods. Abu Lahab condemned him as he did earlier and said angrily:

“O, Muhammad! Your hands were Perish, had you collected us to listen this?”

From that day, Abu Lahab became the most violent enemy of Hazrat Muhammad (saww) and his followers. Allah (swt) revealed a complete Surah (verse) in condemnation of Abu Lahab. Allah (swt) says:

“Perish the hands of the Abu Lahab! (Father of Flame) Perish he!

No profit to him from all his wealth, and all his gains!

Burnt soon will he be in a Fire of Blazing Flame!

His wife shall carry the (crackling) wood as fuel!

A twisted rope of palm-leaf fiber round her (own) neck!” (111:1-5)

By and large the people of Makkah did not pay any heed to his call and refused to give it too much importance. They dismissed his sermon as the passing whim of a temporarily obsessed.

614 A.D / 4th Nabawi:

At the age of forty four, his second son was born who was named Abdullah or Tahir (RA). He died in infancy.

615 A.D / Rajab, 5th Nabawi:

Islam attracted some support but provoked a great deal of hostility from infidels who felt their interests threatened. Hazrat Muhammad (saww) observed the cruelties and hardships visited on his followers. At last he advised his followers to leave their homes and migrate to Abyssinia (Modern-day Ethiopia). Nijashi (Negus) The king of Abyssinia of that time was very merciful and upright; he permitted Muslims to stay in his country and to perform their religious rites according to their belief, despite attempts by infidels of Makkah to turn him against the Muslims.

615 A.D / 5th Nabawi:

Two notable chiefs of Quresh, Sayyidna Hamza (RA) and Sayyidna Umar (RA), embraced Islam. The day Sayyidna Umar (RA) did so, the Muslims felt so elated that they offered their prayers openly and in congregation.

616 A.D / 6th Nabawi:

When the infidels of Makkah felt that they were unable to stop the progress of Islam, the tribal leaders of Quraysh put their heads together and finally they decided upon a scheme. They showed the unity against prophet’s clan Banu Hashim and banned the whole family. They drew up a joint proclamation and hung it upon the walls of Kaaba. It read,

“It has been agreed that henceforth no one in Makkah shall have any dealings or transact any business with Muhammad b. Abdullah, his family or his followers. No one shall sell food to them nor visit them, nor converse with them. This ban will continue until Banu Hashim hand him over to us to be treated as he deserves.”

This social boycott was so rigidly enforced that Hazrat Muhammad (saww) and his followers were forced to leave the town and find shelter in a nearby valley called Shib-e- Abi Talib (valley of Abu Talib). This boycott continued for three years.

619 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

Finally, the social boycott came to an end, and Muslims, along with the prophet Muhammad (saww) returned back to the Makkah.

619 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

Immediately after the end of social boycott, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) experienced the bitter phase of his life when Abu Talib his loving and beloved uncle and protector, head of Banu Hashim died. In the same year, a few weeks later, Hazrat Muhammad’s (saww) beloved wife, Sayyida Khadeja (RA) also passed away after a tender and faithful association of twenty-five years. Thus Hazrat Muhammad (saww) lost two of his best beloved and nearest ones within the short span of a few days. So this year came to be known as Aam-ul-Huzn (the Year of sorrow)

619 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

At the age of forty nine, he married Sayyida Sawdah (RA) aged thirty-five; the widow of a late companion of Prophet Muhammad (saww) named Hazrat Sakran b.Amr (RA).

619 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

Muhammad (saww) married the daughter of Abu Bakr (RA), Sayyida Ayesha (RA). She was to be the Prophet’s favorite wife, and a presence that kindled his intuition and sense of spiritual immense. Sayyida Ayesha (RA) had a sound knowledge of Hadith and Sunnah that’s why towards the end of her life; she was often consulted on matters of Hadith and Sunnah.

619 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) went to Taif (a town, sixty miles away from Makkah) for preaching, the people of Taif treated him even more brutally than did the people of Makkah. They set their bullies and street urchins after him, who abused and mocked him and pelted him with stones. Wounded and hurt, his shoes filled with the blood dripping from his cloths, he took shelter in an orchard and sitting under the shade of a tree. His greatness lies in the fact, instead to curse the people of Taif, he asked Allah (swt) to forgive them.

620 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

On the return journey from Taif, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) recited the Quran at night in Nakhlah (Oasis) seven passing Jinn (Genie) stopped and listened.

22 March, 620 A.D / 27th Rajab, 10 Nabawi:

The incident of Mairaj (A Sacred Night journey) took place in which the prophet was taken in one night from Makkah to Jerusalem, mounted on the steed Al-Buraq (the miraculous steed) brought to him by the Angel Gabriel (A.S) From the temple Mount the prophet accompanied by Gabriel (A.S) ascends to the Divine Presence.

22 March, 620 A.D / 27th Rajab, 10 Nabawi:

The same night (at Mairaj) five Ritual prayers were made incumbent on Muslims which must be performed at five appointed times each days.

620 A.D / 10 Nabawi:

Six pilgrims of the tribe of Khazraj of Yathrib (Madina) belong to an agricultural community to the north, came to Makkah. Hazrat Muhammad (saww) preached them and later on they accepted Islam.

621 A.D / 11 Nabawi:

The first Aqabah covenant (oath of allegiance) took place. Twelve men of the tribes of Khazraj and Aws came in the presence of Hazrat Muhammad (saww) and took the oath of allegiance.

622 A.D / 12 Nabawi:

The second Aqabah covenant (oath of allegiance) occurred. Seventy two men came in the presence of Hazrat Muhammad (saww) and accepted Islam. They pledged to defend the Prophet and promised to be with Islamic Movement whatever the circumstances will be.

12 September, 622 A.D / 27th Safar.ul.Muzaffar, 13Nabawi:

At the age of fifty two, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) decided to migrate from Makkah to Madina. The position of Muslims had become untenable, but they were saved by an invitation form the people of Yathrib, who wanted Muhammad (saww) to come and arbitrate in the feuds the racked their community. At last Hazrat Muhammad (saww) left for Madina accompanied by Sayyidna Abu Bakr (RA). During this journey they took shelter in a cave called Saur, some distance from Makkah. For three days they hide in the cave, the pursuers hovering around. One day a band came so near the mouth of the cave that their voices could be distinctly heard inside. Sayyidna Abu Bakr (RA), greatly troubled in heart, said to Prophet Muhammad (saww):

“There are only two of us and they are many. What if we are discovered?”.

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) replied,

“Fear not, there are not two of us but three, and the third amongst us is God.”

16 September, 622 A.D / 1st Rabi-ul-Awwal 13th Nabawi:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) and his companion Sayyidna Abu Bakr (RA) left the cave Saur and left for Madina.

27 September, 622 A.D / 12th Rabi-ul-Awwal 1st Hijri:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) arrived at the city of Madina. He was accorded a red carpet welcome by the people of Yathrib; when the Holy prophet entered the city, the daughters of the Ansar (helpers) welcomed him with the recitation of these words;

(The moon has shone upon us from the two hills of Wida’a)

The name of the town was changed to Madina, the city of prophet (saww) There he delivered his first Friday sermon and led the prayer. The year in which the migration from Makkah to Madina took place was a turning point of prophet’s life and milestone of Islamic history called hijrah. The hijrah marked the beginning of the Muslim era and the beginning of Islamic calendar as well.

622 A.D / 1st Hijri:

Masjid-e-Quba (Mosque of the Quba) was built at three miles away from Madina. Quba infect a village outside Madina where the prophet first arrived after his migration from Makkah, and here he built a mosque later known as Masjid-ul-Taqwa (the mosque of Reverence). This is considered to be the first mosque in Islam.

622 A.D / 1st Hijri:

Beginning of Azan (the call to prayer); in addition to the call, mosques would display a white flag as a signal that the prayer was being called, at night, a lamp was lit on the top of the minaret to serve the same purpose.

622 A.D / 1st Hijri:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) set a relationship between Muhajriin (Refugees of Makkah) and Ansar (Citizens of Madina or Helpers). This is to be known as Muakhat. In fact most of the Muhajriin (Refugees of Makkah) were prosperous and well-to-do, but now they were all equally destitute. As a preliminary step, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) enjoined the Ansar (Citizens of Madina or helpers) to adopt as brothers their co-religionists namely Muhajriin (Refugees of Makkah) to share with them like their own kith and kin whatever they possessed, in prosperity and in want. These bonds endured and Muhajriin were soon absorbed into the community.

622 A.D / 1st Hijri:

Masjid-e-Nabawi (Mosque of the Prophet) started to build in Madina. It is the second most venerable mosque in Islam, after the Masjid-ul.Haram (the grand Mosque of Makkah). The first mosque on the site of today’s structure was supported by the trunks of standing palm trees that had grown there, and Hazrat Muhammad (saww) himself worked on its construction. In its time, Masjid-e-Nabawi was the principal mosque in Islam, where the prophet spent much of his time with his companions.

623 A.D / 1st Hijri:

In Madina there was a large Jewish population with whom Hazrat Muhammad (saww) negotiated an agreement in order to adjust their relation with his followers. This is to be known as Mithaq-e-Madina (Charter of Madina). The salient features of that agreement were as follows:
* Every tribe and clan would manage its affairs and settle its own disputes according to its own law.

* No party in Madina, either Muslim or Jewish would directly negotiate any treaty or agreement at any time with any outside party rising beyond the precincts of Madina.
* In case of war out side Madina no citizen of Madina would be compelled to join either of the warring parties.
* In all disputes in Madina, Hazrat Muhammad (saww) would be the final arbitrating authority.

623 A.D / 1st Hijri:

Hazrat Muhammad (saww) was privileged the right through divine revelation to fight for defensive reasons.

16 March, 624 A.D / 17 Ramadan-ul-Mubarak, 2nd Hijri:

The battle of Badr was fought. Badr a valley lies 90 miles away to the south of Madina, where that battle took place, after the name of that valley (the battle front) the battle is to be known as “the battle of Badr”. It was the first major encounter with infidels and Hazrat Muhammad (saww) led the 313 devotees. That was a milestone not only in the Islamic history but also in the world history, when a Small army of just three hundred Muslims defeated a strong force of more than one thousand infidels of Makkah. That was the battle in which Angles led by Gabriel (A.S) joined the Muslims. That was the battle in which notable chiefs of Quraysh and bitter enemies of Islam like Ut,ba, Shai,ba, Waleed, Umayyah and Abu-Jahl (father of ignorance, the worst enemy of Islam) were put to death by a small but an enthusiastic Muslim army. Abu-Jahl’s death was an exemplary event of that battle when he was put to death by two young boys of Madina, named Ma,uz and Ma,az. At the beginning of the battle Hazrat Muhammad (saww) threw a handful of pebbles at the infidels of Makkah, saying:

“Abased be those faces”.

A later revelation of Quran said that:

“It was not he, but Allah (swt) who threw” (8:17)

Another secret of the victory of Muslim force lies in the fact that they fought as a disciplined body with an order of battle. To this the Quran says:

“Allah (swt) loves those who fight in Allah’s (swt) way in ranks” (61:4)

The Muslim casualties were fourteen, those of the infidels seventy among few bitter enemies of Islam were killed, the rest being held for ransom. The battle amounted to be an astonishing victory for the Muslims, and that gained them political credibility for their cause among other tribes and soon they emerged as one of the strong forces of the world.

624 A.D / 2nd Hijri:

The fasting of the month of Ramadan was made mandatory on Muslims. The prophet (saww) recommended fasting as a spiritual discipline.

The mosque where the Prophet turned towards Makkah during the prayers is now called Masjid-ul-Qiblatain (Mosque of the two prayer direction)

624 A.D / 2nd Hijri:

Battle of Salim took place.

624 A.D / 2nd Hijri:

624 A.D / 2nd Hijri:

Zakat was made mandatory on Muslims. Term “Zakat” is taken to mean “purification” from the verb“Zaka” which signifies “to thrive”, “to be wholesome” and “to be pure”. The giving up of a portion of the wealth one may possess, in excess of what is needed for sustenance, to “purify” or legitimize what one retains. It is one of the five pillars of Islam and is in effect a tax on one’s possession. It may be paid directly to the poor as alms.

Battle of Uhud took place. Uhud on the western outskirts of Madina is a hill with a plain stretching before it. Infidels of Makkah were gathered there to avenge their defeat at Badr. On the morning of the battle 300 men of Muslim force under Abdullah b. Ubayy (the leader of the hypocrite’s faction in Madina) deserted the prophet as the troops rode out of the city, leaving the Muslims only 700 strong. 

Nevertheless, the Muslims were close to victory when forty archers whom Hazrat Muhammad (saww) had stationed on the hill to remain there and guard the flank, saw that the Muslims were wining, most of them abandoned their post, this left the way open for a counter-attack by a detachment of the infidels cavalry. The ten Muslim archers who had remained faithful to their orders proved too small number to hold the cavalry and were cut down. Caught by the break through of the infidel’s cavalry, Muslim force was routed and the prophet (saww) himself was wounded momentarily knocked unconscious. The rumor of prophet’s death caused the infidels to withdraw thinking the battle won. When the infidels learned that the prophet had survived it was too late to launch a counter-attack.

In this battle Sayyidna Hamzah (RA) b. Abdul Muttalib an uncle of the prophet and one of Islam’s most formidable warriors, was martyred speared by a slave named wahshi. Hind, daughter of a slain chief of Quaish at Badr, thirsting to revenge her father and her kinsman killed at Bard, had set her slave to this exploit with promises of reward.
