The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born in the city of Mecca, which is located in modern-day Saudi Arabia, in the year 570 CE. Mecca was a bustling trading city and a center of religious pilgrimage, particularly for the Arab tribes who followed polytheistic beliefs at the time. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was born into the Quraysh tribe, which was one of the most prominent tribes in Mecca, and he grew up as a shepherd before becoming a successful merchant. At the age of 40, he received his first revelation from Allah (God) through the Angel Gabriel, and he began his mission as a prophet, which led to the establishment of Islam as a major world religion.
The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) was born in the city of Makkah, which is located in present day Saudi Arabia. It is said that Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) was born in a chosen place which is commonly known as “Baytullah” (the house of Allah).
Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) date of birth is generally accepted to be Monday 12th Rabiul Awwal. Even some Islamic sects believe that 12th Rabiul Awwal is not the right date of birth. But now 12th Rabiul Awwal is celebrated across the world as Eid Milad-un-Nabi (The Prophet’s Birth). Which marks the birthday celebration of The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).
At the time of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) birth, there were very few people living around Makkah. But this small town became popular not only in Arabia but also globally due to its religious attachment with Islam and its deep history dating back to thousands of years before Islam.
