Ibn Ishaq, The Life of Muhammad

Ibn Ishaq, "The Life of Muhammad"

Abdullah, Muhammad's father, died while Amina was pregnant.
Muhammad was born in the year of the elephant. Amina sent a message to Muhammad's paternal grandfather to inform him of the birth, inviting him to come and look at the baby. When the grandfather arrived, Amina told him of the voice she had heard while she was pregnant. The grandfather took the baby to the Kaba, the shrine in the centre of Mecca, and gave thanks to God for this gift.

I didn't know this part of Muhammad's story.

Out of curiousity, have you read this one author's (mohammad saad)? I think that is his name. A convert. Who travelled to Mekkah? I forgotten his name..

I read his book.. and I know how some individuals converted to Muslims after reading that book. When I finished reading the book, I remembered there were some parts I did not like at all.

Just wondering from your side.. :D
