Why Did Allah Choose Muhammad?

​At the time of this writing, Islam boasts 1.8 billion followers throughout the world. That number is rapidly increasing. In just a couple of years, it will likely be in excess of 2 billion. Recent studies estimate Islam will have surpassed Christianity as the leading world religion by 2070, although we can expect it to happen much sooner than that. Islam is indeed an empire of faith. It is an empire so vast that it can sometimes be difficult to believe that it was founded by a single man. But, of course, it was. That man was Muhammad. A simple caravan trader in 7th century Mecca, Muhammad was already 40 years of age when he received the first revelation of what would become the Quran. He seemed an unlikely candidate for prophethood, yet it was he who was tasked with introducing the people of Mecca to monotheism. It was he who was tasked with restoring the faith of Abraham. It was he who was tasked with changing the world as we know it. But why did Allah decide Muhammad was the right man for the job? That's what we're going to figure out in this article. Read on to find out why Allah chose Muhammad to bring forth the Quran and establish Islam among His people.

Why Do We Say ‘Subhan Allah’ and What is Its Bounty?

'Tasbeeh' is to say 'Subhan Allah' or any other word that gives the same meaning. It is intended to free Allah from all defects and it confirms His qualities of perfection, greatness, and oneness.

In the Quran, numerous Surahs are opened by Tasbeeh. Allah, at the beginning of Surah Al-Hadid says: "Whatever is in the heavens and earth exalts Allah, and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise." (Quran 57:1), also Surah Al-Jumu'ah begins with: "Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth is exalting Allah, the Sovereign, the Pure, the Exalted in Might, the Wise."(Quran, 62:1)

According to Islamic tradition, the Quran was first revealed to Muhammad in 609 CE. Over the next two decades, new surahs were dictated to Muhammad by the angel Gabriel, who was delivering the exact words of God himself. Muhammad's final meeting with Gabriel came in 632 CE.
