Islam...a long story 

How did the story began 20

mohamad,peace and blessings of allah be upon him, said that he and his uncle al- Abbas, who was a rich man, would each bring up one of Abu
Talib's children in order to help him. The Prophet (pbuh) took
‘Ali and his uncle took Ja’far.

One day, when the Prophet (pbuh) was outside the city, the
Archangel Gabriel appeared to him. The Archangel kicked the
side of a hill and a spring of water began to flow out. He then
began to wash himself in the running water to show the
Prophet (pbuh) the ritual ablution to be made before prayer.
Then the Archangel showed him all the positions of Muslim
prayer-the various movements and things to be said with each
movement. The Prophet (pbuh) returned home and taught all
these things first to Khadijah and then to his followers.

Since then Muslims have continued to purify themselves before
prayer by performing the ritual ablution and have followed the
same movements and prayers first performed by the Prophet
(pbuh). To begin with, though, only the Prophet (pbuh) and
his wife knew of these things. Then one day ‘Ali entered the
room and found the Prophet (pbuh) and Khadijah praying. He
was puzzled and asked what they were doing. The Prophet
(pbuh) explained to him that they were praising Allah and
giving thanks to Him. That night 'Ali stayed up thinking about
all that the Prophet (pbuh) had said; he had great admiration
and respect for his cousin. Finally he came to a decision and
the next day he went to the Prophet (pbuh) and told him that
he wanted to follow him. Thus Khadijah was the first woman to
embrace Islam, the teachings which the Prophet (pbuh)
brought from Allah, and ‘Ali was the first young man. Shortly
after they were joined by Zayd ibn Harithah, a slave, freed and
adopted by the Prophet (pbuh).

The Prophet (pbuh) began to leave Mecca with 'An in order
to pray. One day Abu Talib happened to pass by and when he
saw them he stopped and asked them what they were doing.
The Prophet (pbuh) told him that they were praying and
following the same religion as Abraham. He explained that,
like Abraham, he had been ordered to guide the people to
Allah's truth. Abu Talib looked at his son, 'Ali, and said:
'Muhammad (pbuh) would never make you do anything that
was wrong. Go with him.

But I cannot leave the religion I now follow and which was
followed by my father.' Then he turned to the Prophet (pbuh),
saying, 'Even so, I promise you, Muhammad (pbuh), that no one
will hurt you as long as I am alive.' And with that Abu Talib went on
his way. At about this time the news of Muhammad (pbuh) being
the Prophet reached an honest, wise, and respected merchant of
Mecca called Abu Bakr. He knew Muhammad (pbuh) well and
believed he could never lie, so he went to find out for himself if the
story were true. The Prophet (pbuh) told him that he had indeed
been sent by Allah to teach everyone to worship the one true Allah.

On hearing this from the Prophet's own lips Abu Bakr knew it to be

the truth and became a believer instantly. Later the Prophet (pbuh)
was reported to have said that everyone he ever invited to accept
Islam showed signs of disbelief and doubt, except Abu Bakr; when
he was told of it he did not hold back or hesitate. Because of his
wisdom, honesty, and kindness people had always turned to Abu
Bakr for advice. He was, therefore, a man of some influence and
through him many people came to Islam. Among these was Sa'd ibn
Abi Waqqas as, the uncle of Aminah, the Prophet's mother. The
night before Abu Bakr came to visit him and tell him about Islam,
Sa'd Ibn Abi Waqqas dreamt that he was walking in darkness. As he
walked he saw the moon and when he looked at it he saw 'Ali, Abu
Bakr, and Zayd, the Prophet's freed slave, beckoning to him to
come and join them. When Abu Bakr told him about the Prophet's
religion, he understood the meaning of his dream and went at once
to the Prophet (pbuh) and declared himself a Muslim. He
understood that to be a Muslim means to submit oneself to Allah's
Will and to serve only Him. Another person brought to Islam by Abu
Bakr was Bilal. One night Abu Bakr went to the house of Umayyah
ibn Khalaf, one of the most important men of Quraysh. Umayyah
was out and Abu Bakr found only Umayyah's slave, Bilal, at home.
Abu Bakr talked to the slave about Islam and before he left, Bilal,
too, had become a Muslim. The number of people following the
Prophet (pbuh) began to grow. Sometimes they would all go out of
the city to the mountains around Mecca to hear him recite the
Koran and to be taught by him. This was all done very secretly and
only a very few people knew about Islam in those early days.
