Life of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)
Many Prophets came to deliver the message of Islam in different times and different nations. From Prophet Adam (a.s.) to Prophet Nuh (a.s.). From Prophet Ibrahim (a.s.) to Prophet Esa (a.s.), all prophets did their tasks faithfully. But it is the tendency of humans to deviate from the righteous path. The last Prophet and Messenger of Allah to this world were Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) who gave the feast of Islam and started his tehreek in the land of Arab. After him, no prophet is to come until the Day of Judgement. In this article we will discuss the Life of Prophet Muhammad in detail, gradually covering each aspect and event of his life. But first let’s read about a little summary of his biography.
