He was orphaned at an early age and brought up under the care of his uncle Abu Talib and later worked mostly as a merchant, as well as a shepherd.
Comment by David Silvas on June 11, 2010 at 7:07am
Not bad for a street rat thief with no parents. (Very similar to the stories of Aladdin. An Image the he and his followers preserved and modified.) He learned his religion from the markets of the world traveling in caravans and listening to the Priests, Rabbis, Christens, Buddhists, and other religious teachers from India to North Africa; as a child and teen.

As for his Angel on the mountain, or any other mans Angels.

Galatians 1:6-9 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: 7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

Good Post
God Bless.
