Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) and his people spoke only the Arabic language. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) lived only with one nation.
They all had similar ideas and cultural backgrounds since they were all from the tribe of Quraish descendant of Ishmael. Because of the similarities the Arab people had no problems in understanding Prophet Muhammad and understanding his teachings.
Throughout history we find traces of Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace be upon him) ancestors, and also of his own life (63years).
He only lived in two places during his lifetime; Makkah for 53 years and Medina for 10 years. This made it simple for his followers to practice his teachings. They watched and learned from him directly. He also, personally, guided their actions.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) was the leader and judge of his people and his orders were followed by everyone. Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) never worked under anyone else’s rule but Allah.
At the time of the Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace be upon him) death, there were more than 17 thousand (Sahabah) followers in his city of Medina. They followed him without any doubt. Each Muslim is given authority over his/her own practice of Islam which gives them a great feeling of personal satisfaction.
There were a total of 48 writers/ recorders of the Qur’an during the 23 years of Muhammad’s (Peace be upon him) mission. Thousands of Muslims memorized the Qur’an by heart; millions of Muslims memorize the Qur’an by heart today.
Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) taught his students (Sahabah) the teachings and the orders of Allah for twenty three years. Before he died, he finished his duties toward his students, in that they fully understood the complete practices and teachings of Islam, so they would be qualified and prepared to spread the Religion all over the World. The questions and the answers raised in his time were for all nations and all the generations to come.
