Prophet Muhammad is the last of Prophets and Messengers. He was sent by God to all of mankind. He is from the family of Prophet Ismail, the son of Abraham. He was born in Makkah, a few months after the death of his father. His mother later died while he was still young, and he was cared for by his Grandfather, Abdul-Muttalib, and later by his uncle Abu Talib.
Prophet Muhammad was a shepherd taking care of a flock of sheep in Makkah. He was very well-known for being trustworthy and having never told a lie in his life. The people of Makkah even called him ‘The Truthful’ and ‘The Trustworthy’. Whenever people left for a trip, they would entrust him with their valuables.
When he reached the age of forty, God sent Angel Gabriel to him and appointed Muhammad as a Prophet and Messenger to Mankind. He spent 13 years in Makkah calling people to the path of God and later on migrated to Madinah. The people of Madinah responded and accepted Islam in droves. He died when he was 63 years old. His followers then spread the Message of Islam across the world, and until today people are accepting Islam in large numbers across the globe.
