How did Prophet Muhammad make a strong impact in your life? What is in Islam—beliefs and/or practices that you like best? In what way does Islam become so meaningful to you?
Muhammad (pbuh) preached publicly to the Makkans, but they persecuted him. Because of the hostility shown to them, some of his followers emigrated (hijrah) to Abyssinia (Ethiopia). They had chosen Abyssinia to be their place of refuge because of the warm relationship that the Abyssinian Al Hanif Christians had with Muhammad (pbuh) and his group.
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was sent by Allah primarily to instruct mankind, bring them glad tidings, and warn them against sin.
Whose sunnah and religion did Allah recommend to Muhammad (pbuh)? "Follow the ways of Abraham the True in Faith, and he joined not gods with Allah." "Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in faith?" Surah 16:123; 4:125 "Follow the religion of Abraham, the sane in faith.'" Surah 3:95
