Muhammad is the messenger of Allah in Islam. He holds a massage without hesitation.
It was in Mecca that relatively obscure citizen of forty, Muhammad, a decline of the clan began to preach a new religion. In 610 AD, Mohammed revealed to his closest relatives that he had been asked by the voice of God to recite a new message to the world. He initially kept private message among his closest relatives, three years later, however, they would persuade him to continue his recitation to a wide audience. These lectures, which would later come to consider Muhammad to be the voice of God through, would form the heart and soul of Islam: the Qur’an, or “recitation”.
Muhammad considered himself a “messenger of God” or rasul Allah-a messenger of God in Islam does not carry a message to the people of God, a messenger sends a message that is new and *******ing for Humanity . It was like a God that Rasul Muhammad’s life would survive. In his forty years of life before the recitation, the only sources available are oral traditions that build life to start as part of its great vocation.
We know it came from a relatively poor clan, the Hashim, who was, in fact, the clan that led the opposition to the wealthy merchant clans. He was born after the death of his father, it meant he could not inherit any property from his father when he grew up in poverty. He became the servant and the age of twenty-five married a rich widow, Khadija.
Poverty by Muhammad in his youth and social tensions in Mecca, with bitter divisions resulting from the unequal distribution of wealth among the clans became important aspects of the message of Islam. Although the message of the Quran is universal, it is also very historically specific in its ******* and the traditions surrounding its *******. The message that Muhammad delivered was intended for very specific circumstances and many revelations to respond to specific concerns addressed to Muhammad. Regarding the distribution of wealth and poverty of Muhammad, one of the key messages of the Qur’an is the emphasis on material well-being and the responsibility of the whole community for the well-being of all its members.
Although it was supported by his clan, and although his message was fundamentally opposed to the attitude and practices of wealthy clans, Muhammad seems to have tried to make some peace with these clans in the first decade. It was this attempt to make peace than the Satanic Verses incident took place. Seeking Accommodation, Muhammad appears to have sought to reconcile his new faith with the traditional religion of Mecca by incorporating other gods, three gods of relgion Makkah Al-Lat, al-Uzza and Manat. It was later revealed to Muhammad that these Koranic verses had been sent to him by Satan and have been disappointments. When Muhammad retracted the Satanic Verses that the richest clans turned bitterly against him and no longer attempt reconciliation.
The opening came with the death of Abu Talib in 619, the Hashemite clan has fallen under the leadership of Abu Lahab, who rejected Muhammad’s clan protection. That meant that we could do something for Mohammed and the clan would not seek revenge, all effects and purposes, Muhammad had fallen to the protection of the law. Muhammad desperately seeking protection under other clans, but they all refused.
Then one day in 620, Muhammad had encountered six men from Yathrib. These men were so impressed.
In Medina, he was greeeted enthusiastically. Here, Muhammad was partly called to mediate disputes between rival clans. And it is here that the recitation profoundly changed. While Mecca revelations concerned themselves with ethics and the spiritual, the Medina verses are more concerned with ethical issues and policies. While the Meccan verses address the issue of how to make his life right with God, the revelations of Medina address the issue of building and maintaining a community with a common bond of religion.
It was also in the years to Medina that Muhammad turned his religion out of Judaism and Jews. In Mecca in the early years in Medina, Muhammad sought to integrate Jews into the recitations and the community of Islam. The tensions in Medina, however, translated into a series of denial of Judaism and Jews. The final blow came when Muhammad, prayer, suddenly had a verse revealed to him that the believers should not pray in Jerusalem, but to Mecca. He then ordered his followers to turn completely around (Mecca is 180 degrees in the opposite direction of Jerusalem when you’re in Medina), symbolically, the move means that Islam had broken completely from Judaism.
In both Islamic and Western worlds, there is much controversy about the attitude of Muhammad in Mecca. Whether or not he planned to go to war with Mecca, he became sooned engaged in guaranteeing a war between Medina and Mecca.
It began with raids on Meccan trade caravans. At first these raids, raid
.As Mohammed brought various tribes and cities of the alliance, at first, he demanded that people recognize Islam and its role as a messenger of God. This was not normal political alliances, but tribal alliances. As the spread of Islam, the tribal nature would not admit non-Arabs in the same structure, non-Arabs allied themselves with Islam being a Mawali, or “client” of a tribe.
But peace in Islamic Arabia was a peace to the surface. There was much opposition among the tribes along the Persian Gulf, for example, most of the tribes and clans were un-Islamic and Syrian tribes allied with the Byzantine Empire. The last two years of Muhammad’s life were largely devoted to cope with these internal threats to the peace of Islam.
In his last year of life, Muhammad led a large pilgrimage or Hajj to the Ka’ba in Mecca. This gesture has given Islam the last of its fundamental obligations. Three months later he died.
“The Messenger of God never filled his stomach for three consecutive days until his death.” (Bukhari # 5059)
This shows that, for his dedication, although the Arabian Peninsula was under his control and that was the source of so much kindness for the people, the Prophet would sometimes not find enough food for him. His wife, Aisha said that the Prophet had bought food from a Jew who agree to pay a little later and gave his weapons as a guarantee. “(Bukhari # 2088)
This does not mean he could not get what he wanted for the rich would be placed in front of him in his mosque, but he would not budge from his seat until he distributed among all the poor and needy. Some of his companions were rich and they rushed to serve him and give the most precious things to him, but he spent all in the way of Allah to spread Islam. The Prophet gave up the riches of this world because he knew the reality of life, for he says: “The likeness of this world beyond is like one who has dipped his finger Inthe Ocean.
