The Story of Prophet Muhammad (saw) P1




Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) peace be upon him as we all know, is the last Messenger of Allah to us mankind. He was brought to us to bring us out from darkness into light, and that is very true masyallah!
To love him, we should and ought to learn more about him and how he lived his life. And to love is not only enough, we should also practice the guidance and examples he has shown us. He is after all, our love, idol, and the man we look up to. :)

Okey, let’s learn about his lineage! Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) was the son of Abdullah ibn Abdul Mutalib from the tribe of Qurash, and his mother was Aminah bint Wahb from the clan of Zuhr. His lineage traces back to Prophet Ismail (a.s), son of Prophet Ibrahim (a.s).

Sebagaimana dinyatakan dalam Hadis:

Narrated by Waatheelah bin al-Asqa (r.a): The Prophet (s.a.w) said :“Indeed Allah choose the tribe of Kinanah over other tribes from the children of Ismail; He choose the Qurash over other tribes of Kinanah; He choose Banu Hashim over the families of the Qurash; and he choose me from the Banu Hashim” [Muslim # 2276] 

Narrated by Abu Hurairah (r.a): The Prophet (s.a.w) said: “I was sent down from the best of all the generations of the children of Adam, generation after generation until I was in the generation in which I was sent” [Bukhari]

The Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) was born in Mecca on a Monday morning. on 9th of Rabiul-Awwal in the year of Elephant (571 A.D). His Grandfather, Abdul-Mutalib, named him Muhammad son of ‘Abdullah! 
Okey. Mungkin ada yang akan bertanya, 9 atau 12 sebenarnya? Macam ni, ada beberapa source yang mengatakan 9 dan 12 Rabiul Awwal. Source 9 haribulan Rabiul Awwal di ambil dari buku The Sealed Nectar: Biography of Prophet Muhammad. Correct me if I'm wrong okey? :)

Back in the old days, it was the general custom of the Arabs living in towns to send their babies away to be breastfed by other women and for them to grow up in the desert for them to develop better characteristics, speech and mannerism.

The Prophet (s.a.w), as a baby, he was entrusted to Haleemah bint Abi Dhuaib to be his foster mother. He stayed with her until he was 4 or 5 years old.

During that stay, a miracle incident happened to our beloved Prophet! Angel Gabriel (or Jibril) came down from Heaven, opened The Prophet's chest, took out the heart and washed it masyallah!

Sebagaimana dinyatakan dalam Hadis:

Narrated by Anas(r.a): “Gabriel came down and opened his chest and took out the heart. He then extracted a blood-clot out of it and said, “That was part of satan in you”. And then he washed it with the water of zam-zam in a gold basin. After that the heart was joined together and restored to its place. His foster family rushed to the Prophet (s.a.w) and found him standing up, found him all right only his face was white” [Muslim 1/92]

As a little boy, The Prophet was ashepherd over a flock of sheep which belonged to his people. It was not very joyful for the Prophet as he was an orphan and several family members passed away during his childhood. His father passed away before he was born, and his mother died when he was 6 year old. His grandfather, Abdul-Mutalib took care of him, and after he died, his uncle, Abu Talib, took care of him. He was only 8 years old then.

Sebagaimana dinyatakan dalam Hadis:

The Prophet (s.a.w) said: “Every Prophet commissioned by Allah was a shepherd over a flock of sheep”. His companions asked him: “Even you, Oh Messenger of Allah?” He said: “Yes, I would take care of a flock of sheep for the people of Mecca”. [Bukhari]

As he grew up to be a youth, he became involving in trading as his profession, dealing in sale and purchase of cloth and other items. He used to travel, taking caravans of camels for the trading transactions. He was acknowledged by the Meccans as truthful, honest, dependable, sincere and reliable, who always kept his word and never spoke a lie.

For all these noble qualities, he was known amongst his people asAl-Ameen (The Trustworthy) and As-Sadiq (The Truthful).
Sebagaimana dinyatakan dalam Al-Quran:

Dan bahawa sesungguhnya engkau mempunyai akhlak yang amat mulia. [Al-Qalam 68:4]
