In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.
Love for All, Hatred for None.
The Prophet was born in Mecca in August 570 AD.
He was given the name Muhammad, which means, the praised one. When
the Prophet was over thirty years of age, love of God began to possess
him more and more. Revolting against the polytheism and the many vices
of the people of Mecca, he chose regularly to meditate in a cave two
or three miles away. When he was forty years of age he received his
first revelation. In these, the first verses of the Qur'an (96:2- 6),
he was commanded to proclaim the name of One God, Who has made man
and sowed the seed of His own love and that of fellow man in his nature;
and it was foretold that the world would be taught all kind of knowledge
through the pen. These verses constitute
an epitome of the Qur'an.
|Surely, a Messenger has come unto you from among yourselves; grievous to him is that you should fall into trouble; he is ardently desirous of your welfare; and to the believers he is compassionate, merciful.||
|And We have sent thee not but as a mercy
for all peoples.
|Verily you have in the Prophet of Allah
an excellent model, for him who fears Allah and the Last Day and who
remembers Allah much.
|Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of ALLAH, and the seal of the Prophets and ALLAH has full knowledge of all things.|
|O Prophet, truly We have sent thee as
a Witness, and a Bearer of glad tidings, and a Warner,
| And as a Summoner unto Allah by his command,
and as a Lamp that gives bright light.
|Allah and His angels send blessings on
the Prophet. O ye who believe! you also should invoke blessings
on him and salute him with the salutation of peace.
|He it is Who has sent His Messenger, with guidance and the Religion of truth, that He may make it prevail over all other religions. And sufficient is Allah as a Witness.|
|And thou dost, surely, possess sublime moral excellences.|
