عن ابن عباس -رضي الله عنهما- قال: «بُعِث رسولُ الله -صلى الله عليه وسلم- لِأَربعين سَنَة، فَمَكَثَ بِمكة ثلاثَ عشرة سنة يوحَى إليه، ثم أُمِرَ بالهِجْرة فَهاجَر عشر سِنِين، ومات وهو ابنُ ثَلاثٍ وستِّين».

Ibn ‘Abbās (may Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (may Allah’s peace ‎and blessings be upon him) was sent as a Messenger of Allah at the age of forty. Then he ‎stayed in Makkah for thirteen years receiving the divine revelation. Afterwards, he was ‎commanded to emigrate (to Madīnah where he lived) for ten years, and he died at the age ‎of sixty-three.
