To know the only true God, honor and obey Him, and make Him known.
Muhammad, the prophet of Islam
The following quote is translated from a Spanish Islamic website:
- “Muhammad was born in 570 AD in the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia. He was from a very important tribe, the Quraish. He received his first revelation at the age of forty. From the very beginning, he and his followers were subjected to many trials. He later moved to Medina, another Saudi Arabian city, for a time, and then returned to Mecca. He united all the Arab tribes, which is an incredible accomplishment. During a short period of 23 years, he fulfilled his mission as a prophet of God. He gave up his spirit to his Creator at the age of 63 and he was buried in Medina. Mohammad lived an exemplary life for all humanity. The greatness of humanity and the salvation of all mankind can be acheived by following the Prophet’s example. The life of Mohammad is a reflection of the teachings of the Koran put into practice in daily life.”
