Prophet Mohammed was born in Makkah

his mother died shortly afterwards. After that he was raised
by his uncle who was from the respected tribe of Quraysh.
He was raised uneducated, he was unable to read or write,
and remained so till his death.

Muhammad (peace be upon him) was a little above the
average. He was of strong build with long muscular limb
and pointed fingers. The hair of his head was long and thick
with some waves in them. His forehead was large and high
up, his eyelashes were long and thick, his nose was slopey,
his mouth was large and his teeth were well set.

His cheeks were spare and he had a lovely smile. His eyes
were large and black with a touch of brown. His beard was
thick and at the time of his death, he had seventeen grey
hairs in it. He had a thin line of fine hair over his neck and
chest. He was fair of skin and altogether was so handsome
that Abu Bakr composed this couplet on him:"as there is no
darkness in the moonlit night so is Mustafa, the well-wisher,

His people, before his mission as a prophet, were rude of
science and most of them were ignorant. As he grew up,
he became known to be truthful, honest, trustworthy,
generous, and sincere. He was so trustworthy that they
called him the Trustworthy. Muhammad (peace be upon
him) was very religious.

In order to understand the message of Islam, it is first
necessary to explain ourselves with the prophet of Islam.
You cannot, separate the message from the messenger. It
is then only normal to wish to study the life of Muhammad
.(peace be upon him)his manners and his morals
The prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) repeatedly
smiling, gentle in manners, soft in nature. He was not
severe, harsh-hearted, loud, abusive, or miserly. He would
forget about that which he hated, and never responded to
.bad or evil words

He prohibited upon himself three things: Argument,
arrogance, and that which did not concern him. And he
relieved the people of three: He would not put down
anyone among them or abuse them, he would not search
after their honor or private matters, and he would not
speak except in matters which he hoped to be rewarded

When he spoke his attendees would lower their heads as if
birds had blazed upon them. Once he finished they would
speak. They would not fight with one-another when he was
being there to speak, but when one would talk in his being
.there the rest would listen until he finished

Speech in his attendance was that of the first among them.
He would laugh (but not so hard) with them, and wonder
with them. He had patience with the strangers when they
were grumpy in speech and requests, to a degree that his
companions would bring them to him. He would say: 'If you
see someone in need, bring him to me.' He would not
accept praise except from those who were balanced and
not extreme. He would not speak into someone's speech
unless they disobey on another, in which case he would
.either reprove them or else leave

He was the most generous of heart, truthful of tongue,
softest in disposition, and noble in relationship. He who first
set eyes upon him feared him, but he who related with him
loved him. Those who described him would say: 'I have
never seen before of after him anyone similar to him,
" 'peace be upon him
