The birth of the Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa-alihi wa-sallam) was showered with Divine honour, and overseen by Holy providence. Upon his (sallallahu `alayhi wa-alihi wa-sallam) birth, Allah revealed many miracles and wonders, as a foreshadowing of his prophethood, and a preparation for his Message, and a sign of his immense rank, and an indication that he (sallallahu `alayhi wa-alihi wa-sallam) occupied an exalted status.
