Prophet Muhammad (S) used to follow upto the age of 40?"
Before Allah (via Gabriel) spoke to Muhammad in the cave of Hira, he was a
pagan, worshipping pagan deities and offering animal sacrifice to them. He
offered animal to al-Uzza, one the biggest goddesses of the pagans of Mecca.
Unbelievable, isn't it? Here is what is written by Hisham ibn al-Kalbi:
"We have been told that the Apostle of God once mentioned al-Uzza saying, "I
have offered a white sheep to al-'Uzza, while I was a follower of my
people." (Kitab al-Asnam, translated in English by Nabih Amin Faris, p.16)
In fact Tabari writes that Muhammad was known as the apostate of his time,
as he veered away from the religion of his forefathers.
Ibn al-Kalbi's work is used as one of the most authentic work on the life
and times of Muhammad. The great Islamic historian/biographerTabari uses
extensively ibn al-Kalbi's work.
