Child story Muhammad

Orphan meets the Monk

The Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, made a second journey when he was twenty-five years old, this time with the trade caravan of Khadija, a respected widow he would later marry. On the journey, he encountered Bahira once more. The monk was very pleased with this second meeting, and told Muhammad, upon him be peace: "You will be a Prophet, the Last Prophet. I wish that God would allow me to live to see you raised as a Prophet. I would follow you, carry your shoes and protect you against your enemies"
Sacrilegious war and formation of a league against injustice.

Another major event in the early life of Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, was the Fijar or Sacrilegious war which took place during his later teens. The Fijar war which he witnessed was the fourth one during which the sanctity of the sacred months (Dhul-Qadah, Dhu l-Hijjah, Muharram, Rajab) and the sacred territory of Makka was violated. The cause of the war, which took place between the Quraysh and their confederates of Banu Kinana on the one side and the Hawazin on the other, was quite trivial: a spirit of jealousy and animosity was ignited between two men, (one belonging to the Kinana and the other to the Qays- Aylan (an important clan of the Hawazin). The future Prophet, who was to come to put an end to all kinds of injustice and lawlessness, only helped his uncle Zubayr ibn Abd al-Muttalib, who represented Banu Hashim in the war, gather up the arrows discharged by the enemy.

Prophet  in his youth  was present in the meeting which resulted in the formation of Hilf al-Fudul (the alliance of the virtuous). Hilf al-Fudul was a kind of league against injustice. It was sponsored mainly by Banu Hashim and Banu al-Muttalib. The immediate reason for forming this alliance was an injustice suffered by a merchant from the Yemen. The Qurayshite As ibn Wail had usurped his goods. The Yemeni in vain sought the help of the Qurayshite leaders. When Banu Hashim, the clan of the Prophet, heard this, they called a meeting which resulted in the formation of Hilf al-Fudul, and of course the return of the money to the Yemeni merchant. An oath was taken by the members of this assembly that whenever they found someone in Makka whether he be a citizen of it or a stranger visiting it to whom injustice had been done, they would stand by him against his oppressor until the wrong had been redressed. Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, was so impressed by its noble objectives that he would say long after: I attended at the house of Adbullah ibn Judan the conclusion of an agreement which I would not exchange for the best of material gains, and if someone appeals to it in Islam I would respond.
Muhammad's childhood and youth were a prelude to his Prophethood

Muhammad's childhood and youth were a prelude to his Prophethood. Besides his other exalted, laudable characteristics, everyone agreed upon his truthfulness and trustworthiness. He never lied, never cheated and never broke his word. He did not participate in jahiliyya, even for a second. He was called 'the Truthful, Trustworthy Man' even by his bitterest enemies.

People would say of him: 'If you go on a journey and need someone to whose safeguarding you will entrust your wife, you can entrust her to Muhammad without hesitation. He will not take even a momentary glance at her face. If you want to entrust your wealth for safeguarding, entrust it to this trustworthy, honest man. He will never touch it. If you look for someone who never tells a lie and never breaks his word, go directly to Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, because what-ever he says is true.'

Those who knew him from his childhood immediately believed in him when he declared his Prophethood. Among them were Abu Bakr, Uthman, Talha, Zubayr, Abu Dharr, and Yasir. When 'Ammar told his father, Yasir, that he believed in Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, the latter responded to him, saying: 'If Muhammad says that God is One, it is true. He never lies.'

In the early days of his Prophethood, the Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, once summoned the people of the Quraysh to gather at the foot of the hill of Abu Qubays and asked them: Would you believe me if I told you an enemy host was waiting behind this hill to attack you?'Yes, we would believe you,'all of them answered, including even his red-haired uncle, Abu Lahab, his most bitter and inflamed enemy.

When mankind were in dire need of someone to destroy the order of unbelief and breathe a new life into the world, God raised Muhammad, upon him be peace and blessings, to stop all forms of wickedness. In the words of Ahmad Shawky:

The sun of guidance was born and the entire universe was illumined.

A smile appeared on the lips of time and his praises were sung.

When he appeared on the horizon of Madina years later, the pure, innocent children of that illumined city would sing his praises as follows:

The full moon rose upon us from the hills of Wada,

So it is incumbent upon us to thank God so long as

Those who pray and entreat Him continue to do so.

1 Busiri, in his famous Qasidah al-Bura (Eulogy of Bura) mentions this incident, saying: A cloud hovers over his head and protects him from the sun.)
