It is the Photo of Mecca where Prophet Mohammad was born. Prophet Mohammad was born in the desert of Arabia at a place called Mecca, present day Saudi Arabia . As per historians, it is said that he was born on April 20,571 AD. Though t...here are certain controversies regarding the actual date but in most of the historical books this date is followed. Milad Un Nabi, the birthday of Prophet Muhammad is being celebrated all over the country in India today on February 16. Muslims organize special recitation of the Holy Quran, Mehfal-e-Naat and Qawalis to celebrate the occasion. Mosques are tastefully decorated and illuminated at night. In the national capital the main functions will be held at Jama Masjid in old Delhi area where a large number of Muslims will take part in the Eid celebrations So, In India, his birth day is celebrated on the 16th of February with gaiety and fervor. Muhammed was born in Mecca, now in Saudi Arabia, in the year 570 of the Gregorian calendar. The precise date of his birth is unclear. However, Sunni Muslims observe Muhammed's birthday on the 12th day of the Islamic month of Rabi' al-awwal, while Shi'a Muslims mark it on the 17th day of this month. The 17th day of Rabi' al-awwal commemorates the birth of the sixth Shi'a iman, Ja'far al-Sadiq. In India and Pakistan, it is being celebrated to day i.e on February 16,2011 during this calendar year. His father Abd Allah had died before he was born, and Muhammad was put under the care of his grandfather, head of the prestigious Hashim clan. His mother Aminah bint Wahb had died when he was six, and his grandfather when he was eight, leaving him under the care of his uncle Abu Talib, the new head of the clan. When he was twenty five, Muhammad married a wealthy widow fifteen years older to him. He lived the next fifteen years as a merchant, and came into contact with many Jewish merchants and landowners in the largely Jewish Kingdom of Himyar in what is today Saudi Arabia and Yemen. The Prophet and his wife gave birth to six children: two sons, who died in childhood, and four daughters. From time to time, Muhammad spent nights in a cave in Mount Hira north of Mecca, ruminating on the social ills of the city caused by the Jews and Jewish converts. Around 610 CE, he had a vision in the cave in which he heard the voice of a majestic being, later identified as the angel Gabriel, say to him, "You are the Messenger of God." Thus began a lifetime of religious revelations, which he and others collected as the Qur'an, or Koran. In 622 AD Mohammed along with his followers went to Medina. This flight from Mecca to Medina is known as Hijrah and marks the beginning of the Islamic era. By 630 AD, Islam came to be accepted as a religion and Muhammad as ruler by a large number of people. However, in 632 A.D. Muhammad led the pilgrimage to Mecca, preached his farewell sermon and died soon after. His name signifies 'highly praised'. He is the greatest among all the sons of Arabia. He is more than all the leaders, kings, poets and philosophers that preceded him in that impenetrable desert of red sand. When he appeared Arabia was a desert and nothing. Out of nothing a new world was fashioned by the mighty spirit of Mohammad. He gave birth to a new life, a new culture, a new civilization, a new kingdom, which extended from Morocco to Indies and influenced the thought and life of three continents, Asia, Europe and Africa. The Prophet Muhammad, one of the most influential religious and military leaders in history. Muhammad regarded himself as the last prophet of the Judaic-Christian tradition, and he adopted aspects of these older religions' theologies while introducing new doctrines. Teachings of Mohammed are included in what is called "Hadith." The "Hadith" is a record of Mohammed's words and deeds according to his wives, relatives, and companions. Next to the Quran, it is the most important part of Islamic law; its teachings are just as binding. It is recorded and interpreted in many books and in various forms by various people. He is depicted as the model for humanity in all walks of life to follow until the Last Hour. He is regarded as the messenger Allah -meaning God. Prophet Mohammad is said to have gained revelations from Allah through the angel Gabriel that he was His Messenger and lived unto His ideals and propagated the same amongst others.He had died on June 8, 632 at the age of sixty three in Medina, in Arabia (present day Saudi Arabia)due to his illness.He is known as Prophet of Muslim Religion.Quran happens to be their holy religious book.
