In 570 C.E., Muhammad was born in Makkah. Muhammad learned about arab traditions in the desert. When he went back to Makkah, his mom died. When he was 12 he went to Syria. When he was 25 he married a woman named Khadijah.
For the next 15 years, Muhammad was a merchant. In 610 C.E., Muhammad prayed in a cave where he became a prophet when Gabriel, an angel, had Muhammad recite something.
Khadijah converted to Islam and had followers that also converted to Islam devoted to Allah. They had a book called the Qur'an which was known as the holy book of Islam.
In 613 C.E., Muhammad taught other Makkans. Although many Makkans became followers, the majority rejected it. Makkans tried to torture the weak Muslims to break their will, but they kept the faith. Makkah made a boycott against Muslims but still couldn't break the will. Although Makkah couldn't break the will, the boycott killed Khadijah and Abu Talib. The Qur'an then told of how Muhammad had a night journey.
As Muslims were being attacked by Makkans, Muhammad needed a new home. Arabian pilgrims from Yathrib converted to Islam in Makkah. They asked Muhammad to help make peace in a feud. In 622, Muhammad went on the Hijrah. Yathrib was renamed to Madinah.
After a while, Muhammad formed an army in Madinah and fought Makkah until Makkah made a truce. This truce was very unstable as the Makkans kept breaking it, but Muhammad's armies scared the Makkans back into the truce. On 632, Muhammad said his last sermon and died.
