Guardianship of the Rasool

8 Dec

Tareekh-e Abul Fida:

Rasool’s mother, Amena, passed away when he was six years old. His grandfather, Abdul Muttalib, who was his guardian, passed away when he was eight and then his guardianship passed to his uncle, Abu Talib.

Seerat an-Nabawiya:

On his deathbed, Abdul Muttalib handed over the guardianship of the Messenger of Allah to Abu Talib who – like his father Abdul Muttalib himself, considered alcohol haram (forbidden). Abu Talib loved Muhammad more than he loved his own sons.
