Today is the 12th Rabi Ul Awal 1437 Hijri. This is the day when the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) was born to the Hazrat Aamna (May Allah Be Pleased with Her) in Makka tul Mukarmah in present day Saudi Arabia. When the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) came to this world, his father Hazrat Abdullah (May Almighty Allah Be Pleased With Him) had died about six months before. With the birth of the Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him, old fire that was worshiped by Parsi community in Iran got extinguished. The towers of Irani palace fell down. The Satans used to visit the sky in search of news, there entrance was closed shut. All the babies born in Makkah that year were all boys. A Jew rabbi present in Makkah recognized from the symbols that the Last Prophet of Islam has came to this world.
When the Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him was born, he was heard by his mother saying, “O Allah, forgive my followers”. Some months after that The Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him was carried to the rural areas of Arabia by his nursing mother Hazrat Haleema (May Allah Be Pleased with Her) , as was the custom in those days. The camel of Hazrat Haleema was week and walked slowly when she came to Makkah. After she carried the Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him, the same camel became fast and brisk. Those were the days of the famine. The Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him was a small kid and he used to go with the goats. The goats of other people found little grass and were thin as result of the famine. The goats of Hazrat Haleema used to be fat and well fed when they returned, due to the presence of the Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him. The Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him returned to Makkah after few years.
The Holy Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him traveled to Madinah with his mother Aamna at age six. On way back to Makkah his mother died. Then his bringing up was carried by His Grandfather Hazrat Abdul Mutlab till his death when the Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him was just eight years old. Uncle of the Holy Prophet Peace BeUpon Him, Hazrat Abu Talib, took over his guardianship from here onward.
After many hardships and hardwork throughout his life, The beloved Holy Prophet Muhammad Peace Be Upon Him came to be the most victorious yet humble man. He loved poor and the weak. He was most generous and most daring. He brought the teachings with him that enabled the Arabs and Muslims to rule large parts of the world with justice. The time Muslims distanced themselves from the teachings of the Holy Prophet Peace Be Upon Him they fell prey to the enemies of the Islam. Every coming day seems harder than the previous day on Muslim nation. All praise to Almighty Allah. May he show us the right path and give strength to follow the life of the beloved Prophet Peace Be Upon Him for success in this world and the life in hereafter. Ameen.
