Our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was born in Makkah in the famous tribe of Quraish. His father, Abdullah died before his birth. So, his mother, Amna Bibi looked after him. But she also died when he was only six years old. Then his grandfather, Abdul Muttalib took charge of him, but he did not live long. Finally, his uncle, Abu Talib looked after him alone in any hardship.
Our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) married Hazrat Khadija (R.A), a wealthy leady of Makkah when he was 25 years old. Hazrat Khadija (R.A) handed over all wealth to our holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) to spend for good and noble purposes. He helped the poor and needy.
When our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) reached the age of forty he was commanded by Allah, the Almighty to preach Islam. Our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) started preaching that there is no God but Allah who is the universes and to whom all human beings would return.
The people of Makkah accepted Islam very slowly. The Makkans indeed became the sworn enemy of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) and his followers. They created all sort of troubles for the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) but he started firm. At last, he returned at the age of 63 to Allah.
