Who Is Muhammad (PBBUH)?

Muhammad is the central figure of Islam. He is believed to be the last prophet sent by Allah (Exalted be He) to guide and educate humanity. He lived a comparatively ordinary life until he received his first revelation from Allah at the age of 40. This event took place in the Cave of Hira’ outside of Makkah, where Muhammad had retreated, as was his custom, for contemplation and reflection. There, he was visited by angel Gabriel, who delivered the first of many revelations that would later become the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam. These revelations continued to come to Prophet Muhammad over the next 23 years of his life, guiding and teaching him and his followers how to live a life that would please Allah.

The teachings preached by Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and the revelations he received form the principles of Islam, which among other things, emphasize the importance of faith, good deeds, social justice, and the equality of all believers. Prophet Muhammad preached the Oneness of Allah and the need for people to submit to His Will through this journey of life to attain success and happiness.

Apart from being the Final Prophet and Messenger of Allah, Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is highly revered and respected by Muslims as an exemplary human being. His kindness, honesty, generosity, patience, humility, and compassion towards his fellow beings are the model to be imitated by the believers. He was the ideal of how to live a life devoted to Allah while also being fully engaged in the world.

He spoke out against oppression and injustice and fought to defend the rights of those who were marginalized or oppressed. These actions are reflected in his teachings of social justice and the equality of all people under the Eyes of Allah.

In conclusion, Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is regarded as the final and most important prophet in the Islamic faith.
