___________________
The Prophet-Founder of the religion of Islám, Muḥammad was born circa 570 AD in Mecca and died in 632 in Medina. His revelation is contained in the Qur'án. Bahá'ís accept Muḥammad as a manifestation of God. As the 'Seal of the Prophets', Muḥammad's references to the 'Great Announcement', 'Day of Judgment' and Day on which 'thy Lord shall come and the angels rank on rank' refer to the coming of Bahá'u'lláh. In the Bahá'í Writings Muḥammad is sometimes referred to as the 'Friend of God' and 'the Apostle'.
[BD 162]

The Eternal Truth is now come." (WOB 167).
