Pearl of Wisdom

to his companions in the battle of Siffin, 'Repeat the attack and be ashamed of running away, for it is a disgrace that remains throughout the generations and a burden on their necks and is a fire on the Day of Reckoning. Therefore, sacrifice your souls for other souls and cheerfully walk to death.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Nahj al-Balagha, Sermon 66. and Nahj al-Sa 'ada, v. 2, p. 232

Question : #519 Category: Islamic History
Subject: Prophet
Question: How did the prophet become to be?
Answer: As depicted in hadith and sirah sources, the cave in Mount Hira, two miles north of Mecca, was the place where the first divine message was sent down.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) was appointed by God to those whom He selected from among His good servants, from those who were exalted among mankind. We believe that Allah sent the Prophets to teach people wisdom and knowledge and the ways of happiness and goodness.

The first revelation occurred when the Prophet was praying in the cave. This revelation, descending to the Prophet in his perfect awareness, began with the Almighty God's words,

"In the Name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful. Read in the Name of your Lord Who created. Who created man from a clot." [96:1-5].

His mission commenced from this point, as the last and final Prophet & Messenger of God.
