Allah Ta‘ala had blessed our beloved Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with the best character and best manners.

Since he grew up in the city of Makkah Mukarramah, the people of Makkah Mukarramah had seen him grow up from a small child. The people of Makkah Mukarramah would explain that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) grew up as the most respected of his people. He was the person with the best character from everyone. He would always worry about whether his neighbours were well or needed anything. He was the most tolerant and would not fight and argue with people. He was also the most truthful and trustworthy, and he stayed far away from all evil and sins. This is why his people gave him the title of Al-Ameen (the one you can trust).

Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah bin Abil Hamsaa (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) mentions the following story, explaining how Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) always kept his promises. He says,

The First Journey to Syria


Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was twelve years old when Abu Taalib decided to travel to Syria with some people of the Quraish to do business. Because the journey to Syria was long and difficult, Abu Taalib was not going to take Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) with him. However, when he was leaving, he saw that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was sad to be separated from him and left behind, so he decided to take him with.

While they were traveling to Syria, they came near the city of Busra where a Christian monk lived. A monk is a person who stays in a church and spends his whole life in worship. This monk was named Jarjees, but people would call him Baheera. Because he was a Christian, he had read the Injeel and knew the signs to recognize the final Prophet of Allah Ta‘ala.

Abu Taalib and the Quraish had passed by Baheera many times before, when traveling to Syria in the past, but he was never interested in them and never came to meet them. However, this time, Baheera came out of his church, came to the travellers and began to look at them. As soon as he saw the young boy, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), he immediately recognised him to be the final Prophet who was mentioned in all the holy books of the past. Baheeraa held the hand of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said with excitement, “This is the leader of the worlds! This is the prophet of the Rabb of the worlds. Allah Ta‘ala will send him as a mercy for the people of the worlds.”

In the Care of Abu Taalib

Our beloved Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) lived with his grandfather, ‘Abdul Muttalib, for two years. After two years, when Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was just eight years old, ‘Abdul Muttalib passed away.

When ‘Abdul Muttalib was passing away, he called his son, Abu Taalib, who was the uncle of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), and told him that he must now look after Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). He also told him that he must be very kind to Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and must show him a lot of love.

Abu Taalib began to take care of Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and loved him even more than his own children. Abu Taalib continued to look after Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and always protected him and helped him, even after he grew up and became the Nabi of Allah Ta‘ala. However, very sadly, even though he loved Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) so much, he did not become a Muslim and died as a non-Muslim.

In the Care of ‘Abdul Muttalib


When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was six years old, his mother, Aaminah, travelled from Makkah Mukarramah to Madeenah Munawwarah. Before starting the journey, she decided to take her young son, Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), with her, as well as Sayyidah Ummu Ayman (radhiyallahu ‘anha).

On arriving in Madeenah Munawwarah, Aaminah stayed at her parents’ home for one month. Thereafter, they left Madeenah Munawwarah to return to Makkah Mukarramah. However, while they were traveling and returning to Makkah Mukarramah, they came to a place named Abwaa. While they were at Abwaa, Aaminah passed away, and this is where she was buried.

Sayyidah Ummu Ayman (radhiyallahu ‘anha) then brought the young boy, Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), back to Makkah Mukarramah, and handed him to the care of his grandfather, ‘Abdul Muttalib.
