1955) The Life of Muhammad. [110] This was followed by the general acceptance of Islam by the pagan population of Medina, with some exceptions. [16] However, the bedouins were alien to the system of Islam and wanted to maintain independence: namely their code of virtue and ancestral traditions. [107][108] The community defined in the Constitution of Medina, Ummah, had a religious outlook, also shaped by practical considerations and substantially preserved the legal forms of the old Arab tribes. He put a lot of poison in that. In some of the books they say nine wives. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. "[73][74][75], Sahih Bukhari narrates Muhammad describing his revelations as "sometimes it is (revealed) like the ringing of a bell". At the age of six, Muhammad lost his biological mother Amina to illness and became an orphan. He further says: It … [16], The first group of converts to Islam in Medina were the clans without great leaders; these clans had been subjugated by hostile leaders from outside. [39] Shi'a tradition states Muhammad was not surprised or frightened at Gabriel's appearance; rather he welcomed the angel, as if he was expected. [18] Umar ibn al-Khattab, a prominent companion of Muhammad, nominated Abu Bakr, Muhammad's friend and collaborator. They were joined by the Banu Thaqif (inhabiting the city of Ta'if) who adopted an anti-Meccan policy due to the decline of the prestige of Meccans. The poisoned lamb "spoke" to him too late. [104], The Hijra is the migration of Muhammad and his followers from Mecca to Medina in 622 CE. The place of his burial was decided by his saying as related by Abu Bakr (ra): “Allah does not cause a prophet to die but in the place where he is to be buried.” The Prophet lived a most simple, austere and modest life. Muhammad, Prophet of Islam and proclaimer of the Qur’an. [298][299], Criticism of Muhammad has existed since the 7th century, when Muhammad was decried by his non-Muslim Arab contemporaries for preaching monotheism, and by the Jewish tribes of Arabia for his unwarranted appropriation of Biblical narratives and figures,[300] vituperation of the Jewish faith,[300] and proclaiming himself as "the last prophet" without performing any miracle nor showing any personal requirement demanded in the Hebrew Bible to distinguish a true prophet chosen by the God of Israel from a false claimant; for these reasons, they gave him the derogatory nickname ha-Meshuggah (Hebrew: מְשֻׁגָּע‬‎, "the Madman" or "the Possessed"). He also remembered where he had learned to swim. Pastoret writes that the common accusations of his immorality are unfounded: on the contrary, his law enjoins sobriety, generosity, and compassion on his followers: the "legislator of Arabia" was "a great man. When they justified themselves by referring to the Bible, Muhammad, who had taken nothing therefrom at first hand, accused them of intentionally concealing its true meaning or of entirely misunderstanding it, and taunted them with being "asses who carry books" (sura lxii. The Spirit of Islam is a comprehensive study of Islam, Mohammad, the Quran, Hadith, Sunah, and the Khalafah. Muhammad required a military and political agreement according to which they "acknowledge the suzerainty of Medina, to refrain from attack on the Muslims and their allies, and to pay the Zakat, the Muslim religious levy. He gained support from the nomadic tribes to the north and east of Medina; using propaganda about Muhammad's weakness, promises of booty, memories of Quraysh prestige and through bribery. [60] Islamic tradition states that when Muhammad was either nine or twelve while accompanying the Meccans' caravan to Syria, he met a Christian monk or hermit named Bahira who is said to have foreseen Muhammad's career as a prophet of God. Caetani and J. Burton have argued against the historicity of the story on other grounds. [150][151] Watt finds Arafat's arguments "not entirely convincing", while Meir J. Kister has contradicted[clarification needed] the arguments of Arafat and Ahmad. ][209] Muhammad's message transformed society and moral orders of life in the Arabian Peninsula; society focused on the changes to perceived identity, world view, and the hierarchy of values. [116] Aware of the plan, the Meccan caravan eluded the Muslims. When he walked, he walked as though he went down a declivity. For other people named Muhammad, see, For the Islamic view and perspective, see, أَبُو ٱلْقَاسِم مُحَمَّد ٱبْن عَبْد ٱللَّٰه ٱبْن عَبْد ٱلْمُطَّلِب ٱبْن هَاشِم, "Apart from this one-day lapse, which was excised from the text, the Quran is simply unrelenting, unaccommodating and outright despising of paganism." If he commands, they obey implicitly, with eagerness and haste, without frown or complaint. [130] Abu Sufyan gathered an army of 3000 men and set out for an attack on Medina. There were three main groups of early converts to Islam: younger brothers and sons of great merchants; people who had fallen out of the first rank in their tribe or failed to attain it; and the weak, mostly unprotected foreigners. After several unsuccessful negotiations, he found hope with some men from Yathrib (later called Medina). They were there for one month. [248], Zayd ibn Haritha was a slave that Muhammad bought, freed, and then adopted as his son. After migration to Medina, Muhammad, who was then in his fifties, married several more women. [161] It was later that Muhammad's followers realized the benefit behind the treaty. With Muhammad's death, disagreement broke out over who his successor would be. His speech was a string of cascading pearls, measured so that none despaired of its length, and no eye challenged him because of brevity. In essence, the Prophet Muhammad and his mother went to Medina. [103] Following the pledges at Aqabah, Muhammad encouraged his followers to emigrate to Yathrib. The conquest went largely uncontested and Muhammad seized the city with little bloodshed. He was graceful and elegant, with intensely black eyes and thick eyelashes. Muhammad performed household chores such as preparing food, sewing clothes, and repairing shoes. [129] In the ensuing months, the Meccans sent ambush parties to Medina while Muhammad led expeditions against tribes allied with Mecca and sent raiders onto a Meccan caravan. [14][15][16], Muhammad's followers were initially few in number, and experienced hostility from Meccan polytheists. [16], In the same year, Muhammad organized an attack against northern Arabia because of their previous defeat at the Battle of Mu'tah and reports of hostility adopted against Muslims. In some of the books they say 14 wives. [177] Muhammad defeated the Hawazin and Thaqif tribes in the Battle of Hunayn. [16] They also hoped, by the means of Muhammad and the new faith, to gain supremacy over Mecca; the Yathrib were jealous of its importance as the place of pilgrimage. Most of his early life was spent as a merchant. The pre-Islamic Middle East was dominated by the Byzantine and Sassanian empires. [84] He is also said to have had accustomed his wives to dialogue; he listened to their advice, and the wives debated and even argued with him. [46] In line with broader trends of the ancient world, the region witnessed a decline in the practice of polytheistic cults and a growing interest in a more spiritual form of religion. The mysterious illness of the Prophet Muhammad identified Theophanes, a monk (752-817), wrote in his Chronography that Muhammad suffered from epilepsy. Questions accumulated about the reasons for the loss; Muhammad delivered Quranic verses 3:152 indicating that the defeat was twofold: partly a punishment for disobedience, partly a test for steadfastness. The Shahadah is the basic creed or tenet of Islam. [7], Muhammad's father, Abdullah, died almost six months before he was born. Muslim mystics, known as sufis, who were seeking for the inner meaning of the Quran and the inner nature of Muhammad, viewed the prophet of Islam not only as a prophet but also as a perfect human being. [16][98] Muhammad was forced to return to Mecca. [85][86], In 615, some of Muhammad's followers emigrated to the Ethiopian Kingdom of Aksum and founded a small colony under the protection of the Christian Ethiopian emperor Aṣḥama ibn Abjar. Once I saw him in a red cloak and I had never seen anyone more handsome than him. [188][189][190], According to the Encyclopaedia of Islam, Muhammad's death may be presumed to have been caused by Medinan fever exacerbated by physical and mental fatigue. The name Muhammad (/mʊˈhæməd, -ˈhɑːməd/)[19] means "praiseworthy" and appears four times in the Quran. Stories of Muhammad's life, his intercession and of his miracles have permeated popular Muslim thought and poetry. But he insisted that slave owners treat their slaves well and stressed the virtue of freeing slaves. [179][180][181], A year after the Battle of Tabuk, the Banu Thaqif sent emissaries to surrender to Muhammad and adopt Islam. In 613,[10] Muhammad started preaching these revelations publicly,[11] proclaiming that "God is One", that complete "submission" (islām) to God[12] is the right way of life (dīn),[13] and that he was a prophet and messenger of God, similar to the other prophets in Islam. Muhammad died in 632 A.D. The greeting that Muhammad taught Muslims to offer each other, "may peace be upon you" (Arabic: as-salamu 'alaykum) is used by Muslims throughout the world. [281] Another Greek source for Muhammad is Theophanes the Confessor, a 9th-century writer. His hair was neither curly nor lank. At age 40 he is said to have begun receiving revelations from the angel Gabriel. [137] Muhammad's new policy was to prevent alliances against him. Two months later, Prophet Muhammad (s) fell ill and after several days died on Monday, 12 Rabi al-Awwal, the eleventh year after Hijra (June 8, … [97][98] During this time, Muhammad was able to preach only during the holy pilgrimage months in which all hostilities between Arabs were suspended. [30] Another early history source is the history of Muhammad's campaigns by al-Waqidi (death 207 of Muslim era), and the work of his secretary Ibn Sa'd al-Baghdadi (death 230 of Muslim era). After spending a month in Medina with her son, the Pride of the Universe (PBUH), Hazrat Amina decided to return to Mecca. "An Islamic Perspective on Domestic Violence". With minimal casualties, Muhammad seized control of Mecca. "("Kuran" in the, Elizabeth Goldman (1995), p. 63, gives 8 June 632 CE, the dominant Islamic tradition. Muhammad, founder of Islam, dies - HISTORY Top www.history.com. Bani … He died as a result of eating poison that he didn't know about. He has been asked several ... Islam teaches that if a muslim is killed by a woman, he will go to hell. [16] The association of rain with mercy in Oriental countries has led to imagining Muhammad as a rain cloud dispensing blessings and stretching over lands, reviving the dead hearts, just as rain revives the seemingly dead earth (see, for example, the Sindhi poem of Shah ʿAbd al-Latif). Further, the narrator also wanted to imply that the chief of the tribe of Aws did … [76] According to Welch these descriptions may be considered genuine, since they are unlikely to have been forged by later Muslims. She put a lot of ...to poison him. [229] Modern Muslim authors who calculate Aisha's age based on other sources of information, such as a hadith about the age difference between Aisha and her sister Asma, estimate that she was over thirteen and perhaps in her late teens at the time of her marriage.[238][239][240][241][242]. Between his eyebrows there was a vein which distended when he was angry. Nomadic survival also depended on raiding caravans or oases; nomads did not view this as a crime. The attack had failed to achieve their aim of completely destroying the Muslims. With the help of Ali, Muhammad fooled the Meccans watching him, and secretly slipped away from the town with Abu Bakr. Among them were the enemy of God, Huyayy b. Akhtab, and Ka’b b. Asad, the head of the tribe. When he was 40, Muhammad reported being visited by Gabriel in the cave[8][9] and receiving his first revelation from God. When they discovered that Muhammad lived, the Meccans did not return due to false information about new forces coming to his aid. According to Islamic doctrine, he was a prophet, sent to preach and confirm the monotheistic teachings of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. [7] In later years, he would periodically seclude himself in a mountain cave named Hira for several nights of prayer. The outbreak of the latter was deferred by the fact that the hatred of the prophet was turned more forcibly in another direction, namely, against the people of Mecca, whose earlier refusal of Islam and whose attitude toward the community appeared to him at Medina as a personal insult which constituted a sufficient cause for war. [37] Indigenous Arabs were either nomadic or sedentary. Muhammad fell ill, suffering from head pains and a high fever and eventually succumbed to this illness, dying in his wife, Aisha's, arms. But anyhow, he has all these number of wives. In December 629, after eight years of intermittent fighting with Meccan tribes, Muhammad gathered an army of 10,000 Muslim converts and marched on the city of Mecca. [101][page needed], Muhammad's wife Khadijah and uncle Abu Talib both died in 619, the year thus being known as the "Year of Sorrow". [67][68] Islamic tradition holds that during one of his visits to that cave, in the year 610 the angel Gabriel appeared to him and commanded Muhammad to recite verses that would be included in the Quran. [243][244][245], Khadijah is said to have had four daughters with Muhammad (Ruqayyah bint Muhammad, Umm Kulthum bint Muhammad, Zainab bint Muhammad, Fatimah Zahra) and two sons (Abd-Allah ibn Muhammad and Qasim ibn Muhammad, who both died in childhood). Muslims repeat the shahadah in the call to prayer (adhan) and the prayer itself. [124] They were killed by people belonging to their own or related clans, and Muhammad did not disapprove of the killings. He had thick, curly hair. [148] Arafat believes that Ibn Ishaq's Jewish sources, speaking over 100 years after the event, conflated this account with memories of earlier massacres in Jewish history; he notes that Ibn Ishaq was considered an unreliable historian by his contemporary Malik ibn Anas, and a transmitter of "odd tales" by the later Ibn Hajar. [138] One example is the assassination of Ka'b ibn al-Ashraf, a chieftain of the Jewish tribe of Banu Nadir. The Prophet Muhammad often remembered memories in Medina at that time. Whenever alliances against Medina were formed, he sent out expeditions to break them up. [53][54][55] [87], However, there is a completely different story on the reason why the Muslims returned from Ethiopia to Mecca. [166][167] The Meccans helped the Banu Bakr with weapons and, according to some sources, a few Meccans also took part in the fighting. Aisha and Hafsa- wives of the Prophet poisoned Prophet Muhammad (saw). [211][page needed] [296][297] Alford T. Welch holds that Muhammad was able to be so influential and successful because of his firm belief in his vocation. Prophet received the last revelation during this pilgrimage. God sent him (as a Messenger) when he was forty years old. "[285] Emmanuel Pastoret published in 1787 his Zoroaster, Confucius and Muhammad, in which he presents the lives of these three "great men", "the greatest legislators of the universe", and compares their careers as religious reformers and lawgivers. [308][306] Some of them, like Thomas Aquinas, criticized Muhammad's promises of carnal pleasure in the afterlife. John Henry Haaren, Addison B. Poland (1904), p. 83, The Cambridge Companion to Muhammad (2010), p. 35, Nemoy, "Barakat Ahmad's "Muhammad and the Jews", p. 325. Although Muhammad did not engage with hostile forces at Tabuk, he received the submission of some local chiefs of the region. [249] According to a BBC summary, "the Prophet Muhammad did not try to abolish slavery, and bought, sold, captured, and owned slaves himself. This article is about the Islamic prophet. To maintain economic prosperity, the Meccans needed to restore their prestige, which had been reduced at Badr. The tradition also describes an angel appearing to him and offering retribution against the assailants. And this was why the Prophet (s) did not kill the allies of the tribe of Khazraj, but let the allies of the tribe of Aws die. [175] The Quran discusses the conquest of Mecca. Ibn Hisham and Tabari, however, only talk about one migration to Ethiopia. Mohammad died in 632 AD after being poisoned by a Jewish woman as a revenge for the innocent killing of her family. [46] While many were reluctant to convert to a foreign faith, those faiths provided intellectual and spiritual reference points. I saw a man, pure and clean, with a handsome face and a fine figure. Muhammad was deeply distressed upon receiving his first revelations. And I say that because, you see, the true prophet must receive a direct call. [122], The victory strengthened Muhammad's position in Medina and dispelled earlier doubts among his followers. [32] Scholars such as Madelung do not reject the narrations which have been compiled in later periods, but judge them in the context of history and on the basis of their compatibility with the events and figures. [144] The Quran discusses this battle in sura Al-Ahzab, in verses 33:9–27. Notable scholars at the time argued against the historic authenticity of these verses and the story itself on various grounds. [153] Following the Battle of the Trench, Muhammad made two expeditions to the north, both ended without any fighting. Please note: Any comment containing profanity or hyperlinks will not be published. [16], In later ages, Muhammad came to be seen as a schismatic: Brunetto Latini's 13th century Li livres dou tresor represents him as a former monk and cardinal,[16] and Dante's Divine Comedy (Inferno, Canto 28), written in the early 1300s, puts Muhammad and his son-in-law, Ali, in Hell "among the sowers of discord and the schismatics, being lacerated by devils again and again. [125] Most members of those tribes converted to Islam, and little pagan opposition remained. [290], Ian Almond says that German Romantic writers generally held positive views of Muhammad: "Goethe’s 'extraordinary' poet-prophet, Herder’s nation builder (...) Schlegel’s admiration for Islam as an aesthetic product, enviably authentic, radiantly holistic, played such a central role in his view of Mohammed as an exemplary world-fashioner that he even used it as a scale of judgement for the classical (the dithyramb, we are told, has to radiate pure beauty if it is to resemble 'a Koran of poetry'). Furthermore, in the lands that would be conquered by Muslims many Christians (Nestorians, Monophysites, Jacobites and Copts) were disaffected from the Eastern Orthodox Church which deemed them heretics. [196] Among tombs adjacent to that of Muhammad are those of his companions (Sahabah), the first two Muslim caliphs Abu Bakr and Umar, and an empty one that Muslims believe awaits Jesus. You took them in God's trust, and legitimated your sexual relations with the Word of God, so come to your senses people, and hear my words ..." He told them that they were entitled to discipline their wives but should do so with kindness. [84] As his followers increased, Muhammad became a threat to the local tribes and rulers of the city, whose wealth rested upon the Ka'aba, the focal point of Meccan religious life that Muhammad threatened to overthrow. [158][160] The main points of the treaty included: cessation of hostilities, the deferral of Muhammad's pilgrimage to the following year, and agreement to send back any Meccan who emigrated to Medina without permission from their protector. [16] Popular European literature of the time portrayed Muhammad as though he were worshipped by Muslims, similar to an idol or a heathen god. [109] By 622, Muhammad emigrated to Medina, a large agricultural oasis. [114] According to the traditional account, on 11 February 624, while praying in the Masjid al-Qiblatayn in Medina, Muhammad received revelations from God that he should be facing Mecca rather than Jerusalem during prayer. [270][273], The earliest extant depictions come from 13th century Anatolian Seljuk and Ilkhanid Persian miniatures, typically in literary genres describing the life and deeds of Muhammad. [16][193][194] During the reign of the Umayyad caliph al-Walid I, al-Masjid an-Nabawi (the Mosque of the Prophet) was expanded to include the site of Muhammad's tomb. Being alarmed at the departure, according to tradition, the Meccans plotted to assassinate Muhammad. He also had a wetnurse. Muhammad was the prophet and founder of Islam. [250], Following the attestation to the oneness of God, the belief in Muhammad's prophethood is the main aspect of the Islamic faith. [272][273], The earliest documented Christian knowledge of Muhammad stems from Byzantine sources. When did the prophet Muhammad die? Haykal, M.H. Estimating his age, Abul-Fida' writes: "Although there is a difference of opinion about the Prophet's age, yet calculated from famous traditions, he appears to have lived for 63 years." During the twenty-five years of his union with Ḥadijah Muhammad had no other wife; but scarcely two months had elapsed after her death (619) when he married Sauda, the widow of Sakran, who, with her husband, had become an early convert to Islam and who was one of the emigrants to Abyssinia. just analyse the source of Income of mod. According to this account—initially mentioned by Al-Waqidi then rehashed by Ibn Sa'ad and Tabari, but not by Ibn Hisham and not by Ibn Ishaq[88]—Muhammad, desperately hoping for an accommodation with his tribe, pronounced a verse acknowledging the existence of three Meccan goddesses considered to be the daughters of Allah. [142], With the help of the exiled Banu Nadir, the Quraysh military leader Abu Sufyan mustered a force of 10,000 men. At the age of 25, Muhammad married the wealthy Khadijah bint Khuwaylid who was 40 years old. [191], Academics Reşit Haylamaz and Fatih Harpci say that Ar-Rafiq Al-A'la is referring to God. [16] Sumayyah bint Khayyat, a slave of a prominent Meccan leader Abu Jahl, is famous as the first martyr of Islam; killed with a spear by her master when she refused to give up her faith. [60] It is known that he became a merchant and "was involved in trade between the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Muhammad was an Arab religious, social, and political leader and the founder of Islam. Afterwards he resided in Mecca for ten years and in Medina for ten more years. [131][162] According to Muslim tradition, Muhammad also sent letters to many rulers, asking them to convert to Islam (the exact date is given variously in the sources). His (peace be upon him) father died before The Messenger of Allah's birth. The failure resulted in a significant loss of prestige; their trade with Syria vanished. It was the tenth year of Hijrat. [46], During the early years of Muhammad's life, the Quraysh tribe to which he belonged became a dominant force in western Arabia. Dr. Labib: How did he die? "[291] After quoting Heinrich Heine, who said in a letter to some friend that "I must admit that you, great prophet of Mecca, are the greatest poet and that your Quran... will not easily escape my memory", John Tolan goes on to show how Jews in Europe in particular held more nuanced views about Muhammad and Islam, being an ethnoreligious minority feeling discriminated, they specifically lauded Al-Andalus, and thus, "writing about Islam was for Jews a way of indulging in a fantasy world, far from the persecution and pogroms of nineteenth-century Europe, where Jews could live in harmony with their non-Jewish neighbors. Muhammad was not a real prophet, he was a false prophet. The place of his burial was decided by his saying as related by Abu Bakr (ra): “Allah does not cause a prophet to die but in the place where he is to be buried.” Religious duties required of the believers at this time were few: belief in God, asking for forgiveness of sins, offering frequent prayers, assisting others particularly those in need, rejecting cheating and the love of wealth (considered to be significant in the commercial life of Mecca), being chaste and not committing female infanticide. [275] Influenced by the Buddhist tradition of representational religious art predating the Mongol elite's conversion, this innovation was unprecedented in the Islamic world, and accompanied by a "broader shift in Islamic artistic culture away from abstraction toward representation" in "mosques, on tapestries, silks, ceramics, and in glass and metalwork" besides books. The aorta is the vein that is towards the back and is connected to the heart; if it is cut then the person will die. [6] He was raised under the care of his paternal grandfather Abd al-Muttalib, and upon his death, by his uncle Abu Talib. Muhammad surprised various Arab tribes, individually, with overwhelming force, causing his enemies to unite to annihilate him. [223] Aisha, who became known as Muhammad's favourite wife in Sunni tradition, survived him by decades and was instrumental in helping assemble the scattered sayings of Muhammad that form the Hadith literature for the Sunni branch of Islam.
