Fruits for the Week

Although his youthful years were relatively uneventful, various incidents occurred to show that the Prophet (SAW) was being prepared for great things to come in the future; and at least on one occasion, he was recognized as being the awaited Prophet (SAW) that was mentioned in the revealed scriptures of both Jews and Christians. When the Prophet (SAW) was only 12 years old, he (SAW) accompanied his uncle on a business trip to Ash-Sham (Syria and surrounding regions) a land that was inhabited primarily by Christians.

Both of his parents had died by the time he was only six years old, the Prophet (SAW) grew up as an orphan. As difficult as the life of an orphan usually is, Allah (SWT) blessed the Prophet (SAW), providing him with refuge, the love and care of his uncle, and all of his basic material needs.

The Prophet’s lineage is clearly documented in books of history; every one of his fathers is known all the way back until Adnan. And even though historians disagree about the names of Adnan’s forefathers, they agree that Adnan – and by extension the Prophet (SAW) – was a direct descendant of the Prophet Ibrahim (AS).
