Both of his parents had died by the time he was only six years old, the Prophet (SAW) grew up as an orphan. As difficult as the life of an orphan usually is, Allah (SWT) blessed the Prophet (SAW), providing him with refuge, the love and care of his uncle, and all of his basic material needs.

The Prophet’s lineage is clearly documented in books of history; every one of his fathers is known all the way back until Adnan.
