Rana Ali , The history of the messengers: Muhammed, answered

Prophet Muhammad, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is the seal of the prophets and messengers. Glad tidings about him were brought by Prophet Jesus, the seal of the prophets from the children of Israel. Allah says: {And (remember) when ‘Iesa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary), said: “O Children of Israel! I am the Messenger of Allah unto you confirming the Taurât [(Torah) which came] before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.” But when he (Ahmed i.e. Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]) came to them with clear proofs, they said: “This is plain magic.”}(As-Saff:6)

Muhammad ibn Abdullah was orphaned at an early age, but his father Abdullah was a pagan, as were most Arabs at the time. The interesting thing about Muhammad was that he was exposed to a considerable amount of evangelising Christianity, but he found it flawed, and sought an alternate route to monotheistic religion. Same God, different approach.
