Kabul (BNA) Mohammad (pbuh) was born in Mecca (Makkah), Arabia, on Monday, 12 Rabi’ Al-Awal (2 August A.D. 570). His mother, Aminah, was the daughter of Wahb Ibn Abdu Manaf of the Zahrah family. His father, ‘Abdullah, was the son of Abdul Muttalib. His genealogy has been traced to the noble house of Ishmael, the son of Prophet Abraham in about the fortieth descend. Mohammad’s father died before his birth. Before he was six years old his mother died, and the doubly orphaned Mohammad was put under the charge of his grandfather Abdul Muttalib who took the tenderest care of him. But the old chief died two years afterwards. On his deathbed he confided to his son Abu Talib the charge of the little orphan.
When Mohammad was twelve years old, he accompanied his uncle Abu Talib on a mercantile journey to Syria, and they proceeded as far as Busra.
The journey lasted for some months. It was at Busra that the Christian monk Bahira met Mohammad. He is related to have said to Abu Talib:
‘Return with this boy and guard him against the hatred of the Jews, for a great career awaits your nephew.” When Mohammad was twenty five years old, he traveled once more to Syria as a factor of a noble and rich Quraishi widow named Khadijah; and, having proved himself faithful in the commercial interests of that lady, he was soon rewarded with her hand in marriage. This marriage proved fortunate and singularly happy. Khadijah was much the senior of her husband, but in spite of the disparity of age between them, the tenderest devotion on both sides existed. This marriage gave him the loving heart of a woman who was ever ready to console him in his despair and to keep alive within him the feeble, flickering flame of hope when no man believed in him and the world appeared gloomy in his eyes.
When Mohammad reached thirty-five years, he settled by his judgment a grave dispute, which threatened to plunge the whole of Arabia into a fresh series of her oft-recurring wars. In rebuilding the Sacred House of the Ka’ba in A.D. 605, the question arose as to who should have the honor of raising the black stone, the most holy relic of that House, into its proper place. Each tribe claimed that honor. The senior citizen advised the disputants to accept for their arbitrator the first man to enter from a certain gate. The proposal was agreed upon, and the first man who entered the gate was Mohammad “Al-Ameen.” His advice satisfied all the contending parties. He ordered the stone to be placed on a piece of cloth and each tribe to share the honor of lifting it up by taking hold of a part of the cloth. The stone was thus deposited in its place, and the rebuilding of the House was completed without further interruption. When Mohammad reached forty, he would seclude himself in the cave of Mount Hira and worship three days and nights. He would, whenever he wished, return to his family at Mecca and then go back again, taking with him the necessities of life. Thus he continued to return to Khadijah from time to time until one day the revelation came down to him and the Angel Gabriel (Jibreel) appeared to him and said: “Read!” But as Mohammad was illiterate, having never received any instruction in reading or writing, he said to the angel: “I am not a reader.” The angel took a hold of him and squeezed him as much as he could bear, and then said again: “Read!” Then Prophet said: “I am not a reader.” The Angel again seized the Prophet and squeezed him and said: “Read! In the Name of Your Lord, Who has created (all that exists), has created a man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous, Who has taught (the writing) by the pen, has taught man that which he knew not.” (Ch 96:1-4 Quran).
The following is the timeline of Mohammad’s life:
570- Born in the town of Mecca. His name (Abu al-Qasim Mu%ammad ibn Abd Allah ibn Abd al-Muttalib ibn Hashim ibn Abd Manaf ibn Qusai ibn Kilab) derives from the Arabic verb hamada, meaning “to praise, to glorify”.
575- Orphaned upon the death of his mother and placed in the protection of his paternal grandfather, then his uncle.
595 - Marries Kadijah - an older, wealthy widow. They had six children.
610- Receives first revelation from God during the month of Ramadam.
613- Took his message public, these would later become the Qu’ran, Islam’s sacred scripture.
622- Emigrates with his followers from Mecca to Yathrib, soon to become known as Medina.
624- The start of three major battles with the Meccans - the Battle of Badr (victory), 625 the Battle of Uhud (defeat), and 627 the Battle of the Trench (victory).
628- The two sides signed a treaty recognising the Muslims as a new force in ARabia. Meccan allies breached the treaty a year later.
629- Orders first raid into Christian lands at Muta (defeat).
630- Conquers Mecca (along with other tribes).

Kabul (BNA) 12th Rabiul-Awal coincides the birthday of one of the most respected and great profile of humanity Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him).
The day is recognized as one of the auspicious moments in the universe when Almighty Allah decided to send one of the highly sacred and a great personality to lead the human community towards the right path and protect them from the ignorance, social disparity, discriminations and classifications on the basis of cast, race language, color, ethnicity and injustice.
The revelation of the Holy Qur’an on prophet of Islam (Peace be upon him) aimed to guide the human community towards the right direction so that the human community forge a civilized way of life which is excluded from suppressions, oppressions, injustice, social disparity. The prophet of Islam sacrificed his whole life to guide the people toward the will of Allah.
The prophet (PBUH) tolerated massive repressions after he publicly announced his prophet hood and asked the Arabs to avoid worshiping the man-made statues and seek allegiance to the Islamic religion. The mission totally changed the Arabian society and it led to implementation of major social, economic and cultural reforms. Before the emergence of Islam, there were no respect to human dignity and honor, slavery was on its highest peak. The authoritarian in particular areas had imposed dozens of unlawful and illegal restrictions on the common people. The birth of female child considered as humiliation and they were burying them alive.
This was really a pathetic trend and against the human values. The reforms implemented by the prophet followed harsh reactions from the oppositions Quraish community, because they weren’t culture and their traditions. But the truth of Islam and Qur’an changed the whole world after couple of decades and the people in various parts of the world realized the truth of Islam and the message of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH). So people in different parts of the global started converting to Islam on the call of the great Prophet.
If we analyze the era of 21st century, today Islam is on top of the growing religions in the world, because, those who are seeking truth and will of Almighty Allah have confirmed the endorsed, the truth of Islam.
However, global particularly western media have initiated major anti Islam campaign, but the religion getting more followers each day and even some countries in the west have expressed apprehensions over the growing Muslim community in their respective countries. It’s a historic fact that the emergence of Islam laid the foundation of human rights, social reforms, economic parity and brotherhood. Islam interprets the relations between the believers, the ties between two brothers. The very first verse of the Qur’an which was revealed to the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was the word “Iqra” or “Read”, it means that Islam is the founder of education and knowledge. The central aspect of the mission pursued by the Prophet was to educate the human society and flourish their minds with the candle of education so that their souls are enlightened.
It’s quite important to mention that, the western governments avoid the extremist elements from encouraging Islam phobia, because such trend could to the clash of civilizations and these inhuman and negative activities shouldn’t be allowed under the pretext of freedom of speech and terrorism. Insult to the greatest prophet of Allah is an insult to the humanity and the whole prophet, because, such elements by propagating against Islam or burning the copies of the Holy Quran never achieve their objectives. Islam is the only religion and Qur’an is the only constitution.
Islam has strongly condemned the act of terrorism and militancy in all its forms and manifestations. In the Holy Qur’an it has been stated that those who kill an innocent civilian means he kills the whole humanity and those who save a human is to save the whole humanity. The philosophy of Qur’an is beyond the imagination of human being. It would be better to those who maintain opposite idea to Islam to read this sacred book and represent a true interpretation from the Qur’an. There is link between Islam and terrorism. Terrorism has no religion and the Muslims have been the victims of this trend.
