The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

# About Islam

Who was Muhammad ?

Muhammad ﷺ - peace and blessings of Allah be upon him - was the last prophet whom God has sent to mankind. He was born in Mecca in the year 570 CE. He received the first revelation from God at the age of 40. These revelations continued for 23 years and came to an end in the year 633 CE, shortly before Muhammad's ﷺ death.

Muhammad ﷺ - peace and blessings be upon him - was known among his people as "Al-Amin", the trustworthy one, even before he was called to be a prophet. In many thousands of traditions (what the majority of Muslims believe to be a record of the words, actions, and the silent approval of the Islamic prophet Muhammad), his companions tell us about his life, his deeds and his statements. The collection of these "Hadith" reports is also known as the "Sunna" and is the second most important source of the Islamic religion next to the Quran.

Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is considered to be the best person who ever lived, and Muslims strive to follow his example. However, they do not worship him under any circumstances, which is why the term “Mohammedan” is completely wrong. Muhammad ﷺ was only human, he died like everyone else and he will be resurrected on Judgment Day like everyone else.
