The death of Abdul-Muttalib when Prophet Muhammad was 8 years old


After Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) reached eight years of age, his grandfather Abdul-Muttalib died in Mecca. Before he died, Abdul-Muttalib saw a dream that showed he should assign the task of looking after Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) to his uncle, the brother of Prophet Muhammed’s father.
