    What was the Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w) before he was muslim ? (OP)




    Okay you people might find me abit dumb (i'm still quite young) but i was just wondering this because my R.E teacher said that before Muhammed (s.a.w) was muslim, he was christian.
    Me and my friends love R.E because we're learning about Islam but sometimes my teacher- who's christian- comes out with stuff about Islam that we're always doubting.

    Obviously, when we have doubts we do speak up and tell my teacher when he has gone wrong in his info about this wonderful religion but i just wanted to know if the Prophet(s.a.w) was born muslim or was a christian before he became muslim ?


    Thanks

    Excellent book indeed - which can be read online here. It does use the same narration posted by brother 'Abd al-Rahman.

    Yeah, I don't think he was trying to convert you to to Christianity or anything. But, probably he genuinely thought Muhammad (saws) was a Christian in his early days, similar to Jesus (peace be upon him), as he was brought up a Jew. Just a false misconception. When you tell him he was mistaken, he'll accept it gracefully I'm sure.

    I don't see how anyone could disagree with that.

    Re: What was the Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w) before he was muslim ?

    LOL..... I agree with most of the posts posted by brothers and sisters that prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is a Haneef since the historical account of Seerah too affirm it. Some people might think Islam began only when (they say) Muhammad (pbuh) claim himself a prophet and G-d messenger. While Islam actually exist in everybody self and had long exist and those prophets we learned are all Muslim. I guess this might be rooted from those people who gave false information and misconception (purposely) created about Islam because they are anti-Islam.
