Allah’s Messenger, (pbuh), was born on Monday the twelfth of Rabi’ al-Awwal, in the Year of the Elephant. This was a time, when peace prevailed over Mecca after its people celebrated victory over Abraha’s army.
Amina bint Wahab felt her heart overflow with joy and she began to look up at the sky. She remembered the vision she had seen a few days earlier.
She was standing alone in the desert when suddenly, a light emanated from her, filling the sky and illuminating everything from the East to the West.
She cried as she looked at her baby whom she had carried without any suffering during her pregnancy.
