The Prophet’s father was called Abdullah but he was born and died before the dawn of Islam. How come his name was Abdullah, yet we know in the pre-Islamic era people used to worship idols?

  1. In pre-Islaamic era in Makkah, the populous mostly were "Mushrieks", although they believed in Allaah but they ascribed partners unto Allaah, daughters and sons, sun and moon. Allaah is the greatest, protecting even the name of Beloved Nabi (S.A.W)’s father made it to be Abdullaah (Servant of Allaah), All Praise is due to Allaah.
