The Birth of Islam

1998 Vol. 1: Jan/Feb

My name is Adbud Mutallib. I was born in Mecca in the year 592 to a very wealthy family. My family was wealthy for two reasons. First, my father was on of the leading business men in town. The caravans coming from the seaport of Aden to the ancient city of Damascus passed right through our city. They had to pay duties to our tribe on all their goods and they always spent a few days resting in one of our numerous caravan-sarais (inns where you could stable camels, too).
