MUHAMMAD

Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, was born into the Hashim family of the powerful tribe of Quraysh in the city of Mecca around A.D. 570. His father and his mother died when he was a young child, and he was placed under the care of his uncle, Abu Talib. Muhammad was known to be sincere and honest even before his call to prophethood, his title at this time being “Al-Amin,” the faithful one.

At the age of twenty-five Muhammad accepted the marriage offer of a wealthy widow Khadija, fifteen years his senior. Muhammad had been under her employment, conducting caravan trade for her into Syria. The marriage was a happy one and resulted in two sons, who died in infancy, and four daughters.

During this period, Muhammad, perhaps influenced by the monotheism of the Christians and Jews in Syria and Mecca, was bothered by the paganism and idolatry of the Meccan society. It became his custom to spend a part of each year in retreat outside of Mecca in a cave on Mt. Hira fasting and meditating. At the age of forty, Muhammad believed that he received a message from God through the angel Gabriel.

Belief in the revelation given to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel (Djibril in Arabic) is a fundamental tenet of Islam. According to Muslims, Muhammad is the last of a long line of prophets. In orthodox Islam, Muhammad is regarded as the Seal of the Prophets, meaning that God’s ongoing revelatory activity through the angels was finally completed in the revelation of the Koran through him.

One of the earliest and most credible of the biographers of Muhammad, Ibn Ishaq, described the encounter as a fearful one. The angel came to Muhammad in his sleep and commanded him to read, holding before him a brocaded cloth upon which was some writing. When Muhammad responded in confusion, the angel attempted to strangle him with the cloth until Muhammad felt close to death. The angel repeated the same procedure three times and finally announced: “Read! Thy Lord is the most beneficent, who taught by the pen, taught that which they knew not unto men” [96:3-51 (106).

At first Muhammad thought himself crazy or possessed by jinn, but after his wife Khadija and her Christian cousin Waraqah heard of his experience, they assured him that his source of revelation was the same as that of Moses. It seemed to them that the God of Judaism and Christianity was planning to use Muhammad as a prophet to teach his people in Arabia.

A silence of about three years followed this initial revelation during which Muhammad fell into a state of depression, feeling that he had been forsaken by God. However, the angel resumed relaying messages, and Muhammad began in earnest to preach about the new faith which he called Islam (submission). He felt that he was sent to teach his people about the one sovereign God whom Muhammad referred to as Allah. His first converts were his wife Khadija, his adopted son Zaid, and his close companion Abu Bakr.

Most of Muhammad’s few early followers were insignificant members of society. The majority of Meccans opposed Muhammad as he challenged their belief in idols, gods, and goddesses. Perhaps even more importantly, Muhammad threatened to usurp the power they held in controlling the city of Mecca, which was a profitable center for pilgrimage and trade. Even though Muhammad and his small group of followers were under the protection of Abu Talib, Muhammad’s uncle, a well respected man of the community, they experienced verbal assaults and minor aggression on behalf of their newfound faith.

In 619 Muhammad lost his faithful wife Khadija and his uncle Abu Talib who, despite the fealty he had generously offered to his nephew, died an unbeliever. Conflicts intensified between the early Muslims and the Meccan aristocrats, and Muhammad realized that he would need to leave the city soon. At about this time, prior to his leaving Mecca, Muhammad claimed that the angel Gabriel took him on a journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and from there through the seven heavens where he visited with the major previous prophets. He ultimately was admitted into the presence of God. Jersusalem is one of the three most holy places on earth for Muslims because of this journey, which is referred to by Muslims as Leilat al-Isra’ (The Night Journey).

The news of this incredible mystical experience created even more animosity between the believers and the leaders of Mecca. Even some of the new converts began to express doubt in Muhammad.

Fortunately, the neighboring village of Yathrib, later called Medina (short for Medinat an-Nabi or The City of the Prophet), offered protection to the Prophet and his followers on September 24, A.D. 622. Muslims refer to this year as the Hijra (migration) and date their calendars from this time. Muhammad was welcomed to Medina as an arbiter between opposing parties. More importantly, the pagan Medi- nans converted to Islam under Muhammad’s exhortation.

However, he was not able to persuade the three Jewish clans who lived in Medina to embrace his message as they refused to accept the discrepancies that existed between the Koran and their sacred Scriptures. Initially, Muhammad attempted to make concessions to the Jews in order to find their favor. He had prescribed that his followers pray in the direction of Jerusalem as did the Jews; he also commanded that the Jewish Day of Atonement to be a Muslim holy day of fasting. Not receiving the approval of the Jews, Muhammad changed his policy toward them with the support of Koranic revelations. Muslims were thus ordered to pray toward Mecca; the time of fasting was extended to include the entire month of Ramadan (the ninth lunar month in the Arabic calendar); Abraham (versus Moses) became the central figure in the history of Islam; and Koranic pronouncements against Jews became more severe.

Another task for Muhammad, in addition to tribal unification, was that of securing financial support for the believers who had sacrificed to follow the Prophet. Many became involved in raiding commercial Meccan caravans. The Prophet received revelations granting permission for the believers to fight, affirming the necessity of warfare to promote the welfare of the believers.

The prospect of gaining booty from the enemy boosted the Muslim morale, and for the ensuing expeditions Muhammad was able to engage a significantly larger number of warriors. In March 624 at Badr, the believers met up with about 950 Meccans intent on inflicting a serious blow to the Prophet and his followers. Because of Muhammad’s superior military strategy and the zeal of his forces, the Muslims were able to overpower their enemies. The victory at Badr was interpreted as a sign of Allah’s vindication of Muhammad’s prophethood. Muhammad’s prestige increased greatly. During this period Muhammad began the long series of multiple marriages that further strengthened his position as head of the community.

After their defeat, the Meccans realized that they needed to crush Muhammad’s power once and for all. In 627 a great Arab confederacy gathered to wage battle against the believers. The Muslims dug a trench about the city of Medina and prepared for the worse. Due to unsuccessful attempts to cross the trench, poor weather conditions as well as Muhammad’s secret negotiations with several influential tribes, the besiegers lost their determination and began to withdraw. This easy victory gave Muhammad further confidence. Significant numbers of conversions were made at this time.

In January 630 Muhammad, with an army of ten thousand men, entered Mecca with virtually no resistance. He removed the idols from the Ka’aba, the pagan place of worship, pardoned all prominent Meccan leaders and gave them generous rewards for their surrender. Muhammad thus won their respect and admiration. After Mecca’s surrender, many other Arab tribes in the region followed suit. Christians and Jews were permitted to continue to practice their faiths but were required to pay tributes and taxes.

In March of 632 Muhammad led the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca and delivered his farewell address to tens of thousands of his followers. Three months later at the age of sixty-three, he died a peaceful death.

The greatest twentieth-century Muslim thinker of India Muhammad Iqbal (d. 1938) summed up the feelings of Muslims for Muhammad in this way: “Love of the Prophet runs like blood in the veins of this community” (Schimmel, p. 239). The reports of Muhammad’s sayings (Hadith) and actions (Sunna) were tirelessly collected by future generations after the Prophet’s death. The Hadith and the Surma, although not regarded as equal to the Koran, are viewed as the recordings of Muhammad’s inspired words and actions. The Hadith provide Muslims with the details of every aspect of Muslim life and practice. Annemarie Schimmel, a prominent scholar at Harvard University, observes that the prophetic tradition serves to unify the Islamic culture. Whether a Muslim be from Morocco or Indonesia, “the] knows how to behave when entering a house, which formulas of greeting to employ, what to avoid in good company, how to eat, and how to travel. For centuries Muslim children have been brought up in these ways” (p. 55).

The prophetic tradition has not only influenced every detail of the life of the individual believer, but it has also been the foundation of Islamic law and social government. Despite Muhammad’s importance in Islam, it must be remembered that his position in Islamic theology is not comparable to that of Christ in Christian theology. The ultimate foundation of Islam is the Koran, perceived by Muslims to be the uncreated and eternal work of Allah.
