Fourteen hundred and thirty-seven years ago in 571 CE on 9th or 12th of Rabi Al Oola, the ongoing month of Islamic calendar, a baby was born in one of the most respected household of Makkah. Abdul Mutallib, the chief of Banu Hashim, as the household was referred to as, and the grandfather of the newly born was ecstatic. “Ecstatic, Abdul Mutallib took his grand son to Holy Ka’ba. Prayed for him and named him as Mohammad”, narrates 15-year old Zinneerah Tabassum, a student at Kulliyah Aisha. “But was he aware of the fact that the baby he was carrying would rewrite the history of the whole world in the coming days? Certainly not”, she adds.


And the way Mohammad (peace be upon him) did this is an example of its own. Looking at his whole life, which can be divided into three parts, he has left remarkable impact for the mankind world over. “Be it his life in Makkah before he became the Prophet or the life at the same place after becoming the last Messenger of Almighty Allah. Or his life after he migrated to Madinah. Every moment of his life can easily work as a guiding light”, says Zinneerah.


Days in Makkah before the Prophethood:

Though it was a near storm in Makkah when Prophet Mohammad (PUH) declared himself as the Messenger of Almighty Allah, as long as his personal stature was concerned, it was beyond any question. “He was regarded as the one who was treating the kindred well, speaking the truth, restoring what was entrusted on him, bearing the burden of the helpless, helping the poor, entertaining the guests and the one who was cooperating in good works”, says Tazkiah Nausheen another student of the institute quoting from the holy sources. “Above all, people in Makkah were used to bring their disputes in front of him for a just solution.”


Commissioned as the Messenger:

Allah's Apostle said, "There is a Sadaqa to be given for every joint of the human body; and for every day on which the sun rises there is a reward of a Sadaqa (i.e. charitable gift) for the one who establishes justice among people."

-Sahih Al Bukhari

Narrated by Abu Huraira(RTU)

On August 10 in 610, he received the first revelation in the cave at Mount Hira, located two miles away from Makkah. Mohammad (peace be upon him) was now commissioned as the Messenger of Almighty Allah. “The relatives became enemies. The friends turned foes. And the life for him and his followers became miserable”, Tazkiah explores the history. “But he remained firm and advising restrain, he went on to preach what he believed was right.”


Conquest of Makkah:

After ten years of trauma, at last he was granted the permission for migration. “He reached Madinah on September 27 in 622 where a grand welcome awaited the Prophet”, Zinneerah narrates. The migration helped him to flourish and within eight years he returned to Makkah as a victor. “Those who were up for his life were at his mercy. Still he pardoned them all. He didn’t take revenge from anyone. Not even from Hind, who had disfigured his beloved uncle Hamzah after he was killed in the battle of Uhud”, Zinneerah says and adds, "There is no revenge today, the Prophet (peace be upon him) declared and pardoned them all."


"The one who looks after and works for a widow and for a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah's Cause."

-Sahih Al Bukhari

Narrated by Abu Huraira (RTU)

He Leaves for High Abode:

The Conquest of Makkah paved the way for further growth of Islam and it soon captured the whole Arab lands. Not only the whole Arab world, but Islam became the fastest spreading religion in the world. The mission was accomplished, Prophet Mohammad (PUH) delivered his last sermon when he went to Makkah in 632 CE (10 AH) for Hajj. Just few months after his last sermon, Prophet Mohammad (PUH) left for high abode in the same year on 12th of Rabi Al Oola 11 AH.
