it is not important that for us to be with the prophet,
we as mulims already exist in his purified mind,his radiant soul.and his merciful heart.
however,it is importantfor him to be with us,we look on to the world with his eyes,we listen with ears,we talk with his tongue,we raise our hands with duaa with his humbelness and we walk on the striaght path ,following only his foot steps.

Section: The journey of the Prophet with his uncle Abu Talib away to Syria and on what transpired with the monk Bahira
Ibn IShaq stated that thereafter Abu Talib left with a trading caravan for Syria. As he was preparing to depart and assembling the goods, the Messenger of God began to miss him badly, or so they claim.
So Abu Talib took pity on him and said words to the effect that "By God, I'll take him away with me and never be parted from him, just as he will not be parted from me !".
He did leave with him. Eventually the caravan made a halt at Busra in Syria, where there was a monk named Bahira living in a cell. He was a very learned in Christianity; the cell he lived in had always been occupied by some monk who would acquire the Christian learning from a book, as they claim, which they had passed down in inheritance from one elder to the next.
They stopped that year near Bahira, as they had often done previously without his paying them attention. When they halted, then, near his cell, this time he made a lot of food for them. This, they calim, was because of a vision he had sen while he was in his cell; he had seen the Messenger of God approaching in the caravan, with a cloud casting its shade only on him. When they had arrived they had dismounted in the shade of a tree near the monk. When he looked up at the cloud he saw it was shading the tree, the branches of which were extending out over the Messenger of God so that he was shaded beneath them.
When Bahira saw this he came down from his cell and, having orderes food which was then prepared, he sent word over to the travellers sayinh "O Quraysh, I have prepared food for you and would like you all to come over, great and small, and freemen or slaves."
One Quraysh man commented to him, "By God, Bahira, you've put yourseld to much trouble today! You've never done this for us, even though we've passed by you here often before. Why today?"
Bahira replied, "Your are right; before it was as you say. But you are me guests, and I wanted to honour you and so have prepared you some food. I want all of you to eat it."
So they gathered around him. But the Messenger of God , because of his youth, was left behind with the baggage, beneath the tree.
When Bahira saw them he did not see the quality he had seen and known to be the boy's. So he said "O Quraysh let not any of you be left out my feast."
They replied, "O Bahira, the only one left out who ought to have come to you is a boy; he is the youngest of our party and he remained behind with the baggage." Bahira insisted "Do not do this; call him over and let him attend this feast along with you."
One of the Quraysh party exclaimed, "By al-LAt and Al-Uzza it really is a shame on us that Muhammad son of 'Abd Allah son of'Abd al-Muttalib be kept back from eating the food amonug us."
Then he ewent over to the boy, brought him back, and sat him down among the rest.
When Bahira saw him he began to scrutinize hime very intently, looking at various parts of his body and finding certain qualities in him. Finally, when all had finished dining and had dispersed, Bahira went up to the boy and said, "Boy, by al-Lat and al-Uzza I charge you to answer what I will ask you." Bahira only used these words because he had the boy's people swearing by these two gods.
They claim that the Messenger of God told him: "Don't ask me anything by al-Lat and al-Uzza; for, by God, I hate nothing more than them." So Bahira said, "By God, would you tell me about waht I ask you?" So the boy told hime to ask whatever he liked.
The monk then asked him various questions about his sleep, habits, circumstances, and so on; and the Messenger of God responded. And what Bahira heard matched the description he expected.
The he looked at the boy's back and saw the seal of prophethood between his shoulders, in the very place according to the description he had.
Having conlcuded this, he went to the boy's uncle Abu Talib and asked, "What relation is he to you?" "He is my son," he replied.
Bahira objected, "He's not your son. This boy can't have a living father."
"Well," Abu Talib replied, "he 's actually my newphew."
"And what happened to his father?" the monk asked.
"He died while the boy's mother was still pregnant with him."
"Now you're telling the truth, " the monk went on. "Take your brother's son back to his own country and guard him from the Jews. For, by GOd, if they see him and know what I know, they will do him evil. This newphew of yours has a great future before him; tak e him back sonn to his own country."
So his uncle Abu Talib left with him for Mecca quickly, as soon as he had finished his business in Syria.
Ibn Ishaq stated, "They claim, according to what people said, that Zurayr, Tammam, and Daris - all believers in the scriptures - had also seen what Bahira noticed in the Messenger of God on that trip with his uncle Abu Talib. They tried to get him, but Bahira kept them away from him, making reference to God and to the description of him and mention of him they would find in the HOly Scripture, as well as the satement that they would not succeed in getting him. They recognized the reference he was making to them, and since they believed what he said they left the boy alone and went away,"
Yunus b. Bukayr recalled, on the authority of Ibn Ishaq, that Abu Talib spoke three odes on this subject.
This is how Ibn Ishaq related this sequence of events, but he gave no claim of authorities for it. A similar account also came down by way of a musnad marfu ( the term denotes a tradition attributed to the Messenger of God thats has a complete line of transmission).
The hafiz Abu Bakr al-Kharaiti stated that Abbas b. Muhammad al-Duri related to him. as did Qarad Abu Nuh, as did Yunus, from Ibn Ishaq, from Abu Bakr b. Abu Musa, from his father, as follows "Abu Talib went off to Syria along with Messenger of God and a number of Quraysh elders. When they reached a point overlooking the monk - meaning Bahira - they went down and united their baggage. The monk then came out to them. whereas previously when they had passed by he had not come out or even turned towards them."
He went on, "He came down, the, as they were untying their baggage, and walked among them until he came and took the Messenger of God by the hand and said, 'This is the Lord of all manking!'.
In the account of al-Bayhaqi the phrase he used was longer, saying also, "This is the Messenger of the Lord of the worlds; God sent him as a mercy to all mankind."
Some of the Quraysh elders then asked him, "What is it you know?" He replied, "When you looked fown from the mountain road evry single tree and every rock bent down in worship. And they would only prostrate themselves before a prophet. And I know him by the mark of prophethood below the cartilage of his shoulder blades."
He then went back and prepared food for them. When he brought it, the boy was tending to the camels. The monk told them to send for him. As he approached a cloud shading him, and as the boy came near the others the monk exclaimed, "See, there is a coud above him!" When the boy arrived he found others had preceded him to the shade of the tree, but when he sat down the shade moved out over him. The monk commented, "Just look how the tree's shade moved over him!"
The Life of the Prophet Muhammad Ibn Kathir Volume 1 Page 174-177.
MUHAMMAD (pbuh) returned to live with his mother in Mecca when he was about three years old. Three years later Aminah decided to take her son to visit his uncles in Yathrib. She told her maid, Barakah, to prepare everything they would need for the long journey, and then they joined one of the caravans going there.
They stayed in Yathrib a month and Muhammad (pbuh) enjoyed the visit with his cousins. The climate there was very pleasant and he learned to swim and to fly a kite. On their way back to Mecca, however, Aminah became ill and died. She was buried in the village at al-Abwa not far from Yathrib. Muhammad (pbuh) returned sadly to Mecca with his mother's maid He was now six years old and had lost both his father and mother. He was then adopted by his grandfather, ‘Abd al-Muttalib, who loved him dearly and kept him by his side at all times.
It was the custom of 'Abd al-Muttalib to sit on a blanket near the Ka’bah. There he was always surrounded by people who had come to speak to him. No one was allowed to sit on the blanket with him, however, except his grandson Muhammad (pbuh), which shows how close they were to each other. Many times 'Abd al-Muttalib was heard to say: 'This boy will be very important one day.'
Two years later 'Abd al-Muttalib became ill and Muhammad (pbuh) stayed by him constantly. 'Abd al-Muttalib told his son, Abu Talib, to adopt Muhammad (pbuh) after his death, which he did. Abu Talib had many children of his own, but Muhammad (pbuh) immediately became part of his family and the favorite child.
The time came for Quraysh to prepare a caravan to go to Syria. Abu Talib was going with them and he took Muhammad (pbuh) along. It was Muhammad's first journey to the north. After days of travel, the caravan arrived at a place near Syria where the Romans used to come to trade with the Arabs. Near this marketplace lived a monk called Bahira’. His cell had been used by generations of monks before him and contained ancient manuscripts.
Bahira' saw the caravan in the distance and was amazed to see that over it was a large white cloud. It was the only cloud in a clear blue sky and it appeared to be shading one of the travelers. The monk was even more surprised to see that the cloud seemed to follow the caravan but disappeared when the person it was shading sat down under a tree. Bahira’ knew from the scriptures that a prophet was expected to come after Jesus and it had been his wish to see this prophet before he died. Realizing that what he had just seen was a miracle, he began to think that his wish might, after all, come true.
The monk sent an invitation to the Meccans to come and eat with him. The Arabs were surprised because they often passed by and Bahira’ had never invited them before. When the group was all together for the meal, the monk said, 'Is this everyone?’ 'No', someone said, 'a boy was left watching the camels.'
Bahira’ insisted that the boy should join them. The boy was Muhammad (pbuh). When he arrived Bahira’ said nothing, but watched him all through the meal. He noticed many things about his appearance which fitted the description in the old manuscripts. Later on he took him aside and asked Muhammad (pbuh) many questions. He soon found out how he felt about the idols in the Ka'bah. When Bahira tried to make him swear by them, as the Arabs used to do, Muhammad (pbuh) said, 'There is nothing in this world that I hate more'. They talked together about Allah, and about Muhammad's life and family. What was said made Bahira certain that this was indeed the Prophet who would follow Jesus.
Then the monk went to Abu Talib and asked him how he was related to Muhammad (pbuh). Abu Talib told him that Muhammad (pbuh) was his son. Bahira replied that this could not be so because the boy was destined to grow up an orphan, and he ordered Abu Talib to watch over Muhammad (pbuh) with great care. There are many stories told about Muhammad's youth. Some tell of how he used to take the family's sheep to graze and was always kind to them. While they grazed he would sit thinking about the mysteries of nature. Unlike those around him, he never worshipped the idols and never swore by them. He also wondered why people were always struggling for power and money, and this saddened him and made him feel lonely, but he kept his feelings to himself. He was a quiet, thoughtful boy, and rarely played with other boys of his age.On one occasion, however, Muhammad (pbuh) went with some of the boys to a wedding in Mecca. When he reached the house he heard the sounds of music and dancing but just as he was about to enter he suddenly felt tired and, sitting down, fell asleep. He didn't wake up until late the next morning and thus missed the celebrations. In this way Allah prevented him from doing anything foolish for He was keeping Muhammad (pbuh) for something much more important.
