WHO IS MUHAMMAD (Peace be unto him)?
Muhammad (PBUH) is the last and final prophet & messenger of Allah (God) (The seal of Prophets)
Allah the one and only God during a particular period of time in history sent to every nation for their guidance a Messenger or Prophet, some of these Messengers are mentioned in the Qur'ân by Allah and some of them are not.
"Indeed, We sent Messengers before you; among them are those (the exemplary accounts of) whom We have already related to you, and among them are those (the exemplary histories of) whom We have not related to you. It is not for a Messenger to bring forth a miracle except by God's leave. Then, when God's command is issued, it is judged with truth and justice, and those inventors of falsehoods (who associate partners with God and strive to disprove the truth) are brought to loss and ruin." (Qur'ân 40:78)
The nations that the Prophets were sent to at different times in history were known as the Ummah of that Prophet until another Prophet was sent. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the last and final prophet and messenger and we are considered the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad PBUH
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born in Makkah in the year 570 A.D.and died in Medina 632 A.D. He was an orphan raised by his uncle. As he grew up, he became known to be the truthful, the honest, the trustworthy, the generous, and the sincere one. He was so trustworthy that he was called the Trustworthy One. At the age of forty, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) received his first revelation from Allah (God) through the Angel Gabriel. The revelations continued for twenty-three years, and they are collectively known as the Quran. The last words of the Quran were revealed to the Prophet shortly before his death in 632 AD.
