Life of Prophet Muhammad

Muhammad was born after his father's death by several weeks in Mecca (Makkah), Arabia, in 570 CE. When Muhammad was six years old his mother died and he was raised by his paternal grandfather 'Abd al Muttalib until the age of eight. And after his grandfather’s death, by Abu Talib his paternal uncle.
Then about 595, a wealthy woman, Khadija, asked him to go to Syria as a steward and manager of her trading supplies. After the successful accomplishment of the mission, she offered him marriage. She and Muhammad had four daughters, and several infant sons who died. From this time onward Muhammad was wealthy, but he began to spend time in solitary reflection on the problems of Mecca, where religious principles were being degraded and general unrest was in the city.
