              Fifty- five days after the failure of the Abraha campaign and expedition, Mohammad was born. But who was Mohammad? and what was this unfamiliar name? Mohammad was an orphan baby boy whose father died before his birth. His mother was a virtuous, upper- middle class widow. It was the tradition of women at that time to hand their children to wet nurses to suckle them. So she did. She sent Mohammad away to be brought up in the sands nearby, in bani Saad to be suckled by Halima,a very poor wet nurse, who was an eyewitness of the blessings Mohammed brought about. After completing two years  with Halima, Mohammad was returned to his mother. Being keen on having good health and sound language for her infant, Amina, the prophet’s mother prefered Mohammad to stay a little longer in the company of Halima. Halima, on her part, rejoiced as the blessed infant would live a little longer with her. So Mohammad was sent again to beni Saad. One day, while playing with his playmates, Mohammad had a strange experience. The children saw a stranger approach Mohammad the boy, lay him down, take off his upper part’s clothes and open up his chest. The terrified children ran off to Halima, telling her that Mohammad was killed. In fact it was Gabriel who came, took off Mohammad’s heart, washed it and put it back in its original place. Full of fear for Mohammad, Halima returned him home to his natural mother Amina, in Makkah.

If Allah makes you stand up you will never fall, and if he lets you fall and leaves you to yourself, you will always fall.
