Mohammed or Muhammad and his family tree.

Muhammad was born in 570 to a respectable though not wealthy or powerful clan of the Quraysh tribe. His father died before he was born, his mother shortly afterward, leaving Muhammad under the care of his grandparents and uncle.

The Scripture of the Maiden in Terror (Lore)

confidentiallyconfusing:

Once, there was a maiden…

…who knew some things about a man. He didn’t like that, but he kissed her anyway. She told him everything in her heart:

She whispered truths to him, but he didn’t care.

She whispered hopes to him, but he didn’t care.

She whispered her prayers, but heard only silence.

And she whispered her fear to him, but he didn’t care.

He looked upon her inner self,

and the void met his eyes.

“To know the world is to fear it,” said he.
