Extracts from this document...


My essay will concentrate on that when the Prophet Muhammad (saw) spreading Islam, that time when he was being tortured he still did continue to spread Islam. This essay will focus on how Prophet Muhammad (saw) did not give up under a very painful struggle e.c.t. PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW) Prophet Muhammad (saw) was born around the year of 570 and was orphaned at an early age. His uncle, who had religious place within the main Quraysh tribe of Mecca, raised him. At the age of 25, Prophet Muhammad (saw) married Bibi Khadija (as) who was 40 years old at that time. At the age of 40, within the distance of the hills outside Mecca, Prophet Muhammad (saw) had his first experience of Islam. The Angel Jibraeel (as) appeared to Prophet Muhammad (saw) and informed him that he was Allah's (swt) first chosen messenger.
