The Islam

The Youthful Time

Youthful Time
In the Teenage, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ worked as a shepherd. Many prophets worked as shepherds in their initial phase of life, even Jesus (PBUH) worked as a Shepherd. In the teenage, Prophet ﷺ used to traveled with Abu Talib, who was a merchant taking caravans to trade centres. On at least one occasion, he is said to have traveled as far north as Syria. Older merchants recognised his character and Alias him as El–Amin, (the one you can trust)

Cave of Hira
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ went to cave of Hirra for Meditation which was approx 3 miles away from Mecca. This was prophet’s ﷺ routine. Cave of Hira is a very peaceful place on a mountain (Jabel-e-Noor). Prophet Muhammad ﷺ spent most of his time in this cave in meditation like Prophet Abraham (PBUH) did Meditation before prophethood which is also called deep observation.

The virtuous
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ promoted good ethics and chastity. Even pagans of Mecca gave him alias (لقب) of Al- Sadiq Al-Amin.

A businesswoman and the daughter of Khuwaylid ibn Asad, a leader of Quraysh tribe of Mecca, Khadijah bint Khuwaylid was looking for an honest man to handle her business and trading. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was renowned as Ameen (The Honest), Abu-Talib (his Uncle) suggested The Prophet to join caravan of Khadijah. Prophet accepted and joined as a leader. Khadijah sent some people with him as slaves and helpers.

Marriage
Caravan successfully arrived in Mecca with huge numbers of profit and people told Khadijah about some miracle which happened during journey which was relevant to Prophet ﷺ then she proposed him for Marriage. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ accepted the proposal and married Khadijah bint Khuwaylid. The age of Prophet ﷺ was 25 yeas old and Khadijah was 40 years. Sermon of marriage (Nikkah) was given by Abu Talib (Uncle) and Warqah bin Nofel who was cousin of Khadijah bint Khuwaylid and was Christian mystic of his time.
Prophet Muhammad ﷺ did 11 marriages in his life after death of Khadijah bint Khuwaylid. see more

Children
The first son of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was Qasim, who passed away before his second birthday (hence Prophet Muhammad’s ﷺ  kunya Abu Qasim). Khadijah then gave birth to their daughters Zaynab, Ruqayyah, Umm Kulthum and Fatima and lastly to their son Abdullah who also passed away in childhood.

Restoration Of Kaaba
The Holy Kaaba was damaged due to heavy rain and people of Mecca decided to repair it. After repairing it was time to place the Holy Stone Hijra-e-Aswad. Everyone claimed their supremacy for doing this work and wanted to be the ones to put the stone. People decided to talk with Prophet Muhammad ﷺ because he was truthful and honest. Prophetﷺ said to place the holy stone in a cloth and leaders of Mecca should hold the corners of that sheet. Then people obeyed him and the holy stone was taken in the sheet and Prophet ﷺ placed Hijra e Aswad over its fitting. The big problem which would have happened was avoided through Prophet’s ﷺ wisdom.
