Nabi Muhammad S.A.W

We begin with the beautiful lessons of Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) the last and final Messenger from ALLAH (Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala) to all mankind. His birth, life, his appointment as a Prophet, the revelations from Angel Jibraeel (Radiallahu Anhum) and the many trials and tribulations he experienced in his life are all very dear and important to a Muslim. We follow the ways of the Prophet very closely as he gave meaning to the many commandments and directions of the revelations. He was regarded as “the living Qur’an,” and also fulfilled the second half of the declaration of a Muslim, that is, “Muhammad is the messenger of GOD.”
Before we begin with the message that he brought to all mankind, it is important to sketch a picture of the Arabian surroundings, the people, the human activity and the thoughts and practices of the people at that time, to create the setting that this noble Prophet found himself in when he made his appearance and undertook the superhuman task of changing it for the better. Let us fill you in on this vital background before talking about the birth and life of Muhammad (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa Sallam).
