Prophet Muhammad’s Final Years

Prophet Muhammad’s Final Years

Muhammad returned to Madinah, which continued to be the political capital of the Islamic city-state. In 632 AD (10 AH) Muhammad went to Mecca as a pilgrim as he believed it was for the last time of his life. The revelation he received over there included the following verse:

{{This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion.}} (Holy Qur’an 5: 3)

Within few months after returning to Madinah, Muhammad, peace be upon him, died after a brief illness. He is buried in the grand Prophet’s Masjid( it is better to say Masjid for the mosque means the place that gathers mosquito’s- Non Muslims who have used that term) in Madinah.
