Who was Mahoma?


(570-632): Arab Prophet and religious leader who inspired and founded islam. He was born in the Arabian city of Mecca. He was orphaned at the age of six and went to live with his grandfather and then his uncle. At 25 he began working as a commercial agent of Khadijah, a rich widow of 40 years, whom he married. For 25 years she was his partner and gave him several children, but only his daughter FATIMA would give descendants.
In 610, when Mahoma was 40 years old, he had a vision while meditating in a cave on the outskirts of Mecca. "A supernatural contact that later generations knew as ' the night of power or destiny". A voice ordered three times repeat what listened, as I felt such compression in your body which could hardly breathe.
Angel human-shaped urged him to become a Messenger of God and ordered:
' Recite: in the name of the Lord, which you created, created man from a clot of blood, and your Lord is the most prodigal, who taught by the pen, the man what he didn't know '.
Then again heard the words of the first of many revelations that would come to him in similar visions in the following two decades. Muhammad also was revealing to their fellow human beings. The revelations came from wing and the followers of Muhammad have always maintained that they were communicated to him by the Archangel GABRIEL (the same one that announced to Mary the birth of Jesus and to EZEKIEL the birth of John the Baptist). Those who submit to such sermons would be called Muslim and islam would be the name of their religion.

At the core of this new teaching was the doctrine that there is no God but Allah and that his followers were subjected it. The word ISLAM means submission.
Mohammed attracted many followers, but also many enemies. In 622 he should go to Medina. The Muslims took over this HEGIRA (running from Mecca to Medina) like the initiation of your calendar. Since then Mahoma organized rules for the correct worship of Allah and the Islamic society. He also led the war against enemies. Thus, conquered Mecca in the 630. Most of the scattered tribes allied themselves with Muhammad.
The ideal man, it is considered but never said to have supernatural powers and does not have it by divine. His tomb is in the Holy Mosque of the Prophet, in Medina.
Mahonia, ABRAHAM was a Muslim because he had subjected completely to God. Jesus is accepted as a prophet but not as the son of God, because he could not accept the idea that God could be father.
The figure of Muhammad is a prophet to whom Allah manifested itself and when there was compliment the elaboration of the QURAN anymore is would reveal their messages to humanity.
