Assalamualaikum Wr.Wb. Honorable juries, teachers, committees and all the participants. It is a great honor for me to join this English speech contest. Bismillahirrahmanirrahim In the name of Allah, the most Merciful and the most Gracious. All praises be to Allah SWT, the lord of the world, the master of the day after, the creator of everything in this universe. Peace and Salutation be upon our prophet Muhammad SAW, who has brought us from the darkness into the brightness and guided us into the right way of life. Ladies and Gentlemen, In this good opportunity, I would like to give a speech on the life story of our beloved prophet: Muhammad SAW (peace be upon him). Prophet Muhammad was born in Mecca in 571 A.D. The name of his father was Abdullah and the name of his mother was Aminah. Muhammad was born after the death of his father. His mother also died when he was only six years old. After the death of his mother, Muhammad was brought up by his grand-father Abdul Muttalib and later on, by his uncle Abu Thalib. From the very childhood Muhammad was serious minded and very often used to think about everything which he saw around him. As a young boy of thirteen years, he joined his uncle in his business. During his trade-journeys he curiously watched the various customs of the different Arab societies. At the age of twenty-five years he was employed by a rich widow Khadijah for looking after her business. She was so impressed with the noble character of Muhammad that she subsequently married him. Prophet lived with her till she died. After her death the Prophet married other women who were also widows except the fourth one (Ayesha Begum) who was daughter of his friend and disciple Abu Bakar from Khadijah, the Prophet had two sons and four daughters. But, only the fourth daughter Fatima survived him. From other wives there were no children. Prophet Muhammad thought seriously about the evils in the society and was anxious to find out ways and means to remove them. He used to go to a lonely cave in the mountain called Hira where he thought about the concept of God, religion and the reform of the society. It is believed that once, in the month of Ramadhan in 609 A.D., when the Prophet was meditating in the cave, he heard a strange voice. The voice was from Angle Gabriel who was sent to him by God. Gabriel whispered in the ears of the Prophet: Read in the name of Allah, the Creator of all things, who made man from a clot of blood.

Read for thy Lord is most gracious, he who teaches the use of pen teaches man what he does not know. This was the first message of God (Wahi) to the Prophet. Since then, a series of divine communications or messages of God were received by him on different occasions till his death. Quran is a collection of all such divine messages revealed to the Prophet from time to time. In short, the basic principles of the religion which were preached by the Prophet are as under: (i) God (Allah) is one and only one, and that Muhammad is His messenger (Rasool). (ii) God (Allah) is the Supreme Commander of everything that exists in this World and that everyone should submit to the will of God. As pointed out earlier, the Arabic word Islam means submission to the will of God. (iii) All human beings are equal. No one is to be treated as superior to another because they are like brothers. Through his preaching, the Prophet laid down also the new principles of life and abolished the existing evil customs from the society. First to believe and obey these divine messages was Prophets wife Khadijah. Gradually others also believed in what he said. But a great majority of people in Mecca opposed these preachings. They did not allow the Prophet to speak and communicate the message to the people. Finding it difficult, the Prophet left Mecca and went to Medina in 622 A.D. This journey from Mecca to Medina is taken to be a holy mission (Hejarat). At Medina his preachings were appreciated and more and more people became followers of the Prophet. Prophet Muhammad not only united his followers through his new faith but also organised them as a strong political group to face the opposition. His followers fought several battles with the disbelievers. But there was such a force in the ideas of this new faith that very soon a great majority of the people of Arabia became its followers. The personality of Prophet Muhammad dominated the minds of Arabs to such an extent that within a short period most of them embraced Islam. At the time of his death in 632 A.D., Prophet Muhammad was the religious, social and administrative head of a big Islamic Commonwealth. By Islamic Commonwealth we mean the group of great majority of people who became followers of the preaching of the Prophet. Up to these days, the number of people who follow Prophet Muhammads preachings has been increasing continuously. They, called as Moslems, spread and exist around the world. Ladies and Gentlemen, Thats all my speech about the life story of Prophet Muhammad SAW. May this speech be useful for us. Thank you very much for your attention. Wassalamalaikum Wr.
