Childhood and Youth of Our Prophet – Dua Surah Verse


In this article, we will deal with the childhood and youth of the Prophet.. Hz. After his birth, the Prophet Muhammad (saas) stayed with his mother for a while and then milk was given to the mother as usual.

At that time, there was the custom of giving milk to the mother to help the children grow up in the healthy desert air. And the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was given to Halima, his foster mother. Our Prophet stayed with his foster mother until he was 5 years old because there was a plague epidemic in Mecca. Upon this custom, our Prophet spent his childhood here.

He was later handed over to his mother, Amine. When the Prophet went to his foster mother’s house, the house attained abundance and fertility. Camels and sheep began to produce more milk than before. The chickens began to lay eggs several times a day. His foster mother Halime understood that he was a special child.

When the Prophet was with his foster mother,Shakk-i Sadr” called event. According to this, two angels came and split the chest of Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (saas), took out his heart, washed it with a heavenly water purified from evil and placed it in its place.

It is said that after that incident, the child, who was worried about the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and Sallam, whom Halima and his wife witnessed many extraordinary events, started to think that they should return the child to his family.

Childhood of Our Prophet

When the Prophet was a child, that is, when he was 6 years old, his mother Amina took him to Medina with his concubine Umm Ayman. Here she wanted to visit both her husband’s grave and the members of Beni Neccar, who were considered uncles of the family because of Abdulmuttalib’s mother.

While returning to Mecca after staying in Medina for a month, our mother Amina fell ill in a place called Ebva. And she died there at a young age. The Prophet was orphaned by the death of his mother.

The Prophet was very upset. His mother’s death shook him deeply. He was brought to Mecca by Umm Ayman and handed over to his grandfather Abdulmuttalib.

Prophet Abdulmuttalip, the grandfather of our Prophet, loved the most precious memory of his son Abdullah, whom he loved very much and lost at a young age, and took him with him.

He used to sit at the table with him and eat, and from time to time he would sit on the mat in the shadow of the Kaaba wall. She showed him great compassion and mercy. The mother was trying not to make her absence felt.

Abdulmuttalip, who is over 80 years old, gave him the care and protection of his 8-year-old grandson, Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Sallallahu Aleyhi Sellem, to his uncle Abu Talib. And then he died. With this incident, another sad incident happened during the childhood of our Prophet.

Abu Talib is the brother of Abdullah, the father of the Prophet. Abu Talib loved his nephew more than his children. He admired his abundance, good and moral structure, exemplary behavior and made an effort to raise him better. He would take her with him on some of his travels.

Priest Bukhara and Our Prophet

When Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Sallallahu Aleyhi and Sallam was 12 years old, his uncle decided to go to Syria for trade. Seeing this request of the Prophet, Abu Talib took him with him. The caravan stopped in Busra in Syria.

Priest Bahira Abu Talib, whom he saw there, said, “The prophet promised to be sent in the Bible is his nephew. He will be the last prophet with Muhammad.” Abu Talib interrupted his journey and returned to Mecca for the safety of the Prophet.

Our beloved Prophet also worked as a shepherd at a young age. As a matter of fact, in one of his hadiths, he said, “There is no prophet who did not herd sheep”.

Fatima bint Asad, the wife of Abu Talib, loved our Master the Prophet more than her own children. When the Prophet grew up, he never forgot the good deeds of his aunt. He visits her at his home in Medina. He used to take a nap there from time to time. He was very upset when his aunt passed away. He shrouded his shirt for her. He also led the funeral prayer himself.

While describing his sadness over his death to those around him, he said: “I was an orphan who needed his protection. He fed me even though his own children were hungry. She would leave her own children and comb my hair. It was almost like my mother.”

Abu Talib stood by his nephew after his prophethood, and tried to do his best to protect himself.

The Exemplary Business Life of the Prophet

Jacob the Prophet

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was involved in trade like many Quraysh people in Mecca. Since his uncle Abu Talib was engaged in the trade of cloth and grain, he started his business life by helping him. Later, in his uncle’s old age, he continued to trade himself.

During this period, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) traveled to various places to trade. During his adolescence, he traded to the Hubashe Fair, to Yemen once or twice, to Eastern Arabia, to the Mushakkar and Deba fairs, and to Abyssinia.

Thanks to these trades, while learning the necessities of trade, he had the opportunity to get to know people living in other places and to learn their language and dialects. He left an excellent impression on the people he came into contact with because of his trade.

Because of his valor, honesty, chastity, mercy, righteousness, honesty and reliability, ““Muhammad Amin” it was said. Kays bin Saib, one of the Meccan merchants, describes our Prophet as follows: “I did many joint business with him. I’ve never met a better partner than him. When he was going on a business trip, I would have delegated some business to him.

When he returned from the trip, he would not go home to his own house without accounting to my complete satisfaction. On the other hand, if he transferred me a job when I went on a trip, he would only ask me if I was in good health and well-being, while everyone was asking me about their own business on my return.

Hz Mohammed Mustafa Sallallahu Alayhi and Sallem did not worship idols, did not lie, did not stray from the truth, did not offend anyone, and acted wisely and maturely. He gained respect among the Quraysh with his correct word and reliability.

She started to work with Khadija, one of the respected and wealthy women of Quraysh, who was engaged in trade. He married her at the age of 25. Hazrat Khadija was then 40 years old. After the repair of the Kaaba, the tribes asked him to act as an arbitrator during the replacement of the sacred stone “Hajar-ul Eswad”, which shows how respected and reliable he was.

In this article, we tried to explain the childhood and youth of the Prophet under the main headings. Greetings.
