This is Muhammad. He was originally born into a very important family in Mecca around 570. He had a very difficult childhood. His father died before he was born and his mom died when he was 6. He was living with his uncle after that. After having traveled on his uncles caravan as a child, he managed a cravan buisness owned by a woman named Khadijah. Eventually they married.
The caravan trade made Mecca a rich city. Originally, the rich would help the poor, but they decided to no longer help the poor and keep thir wealth to themselves.
One day, Muhammad was fed up with all the greed, so he went to a cave to meditate. According to Muhammad's teachings, an angel appeared and spoke to him. Muslims believe that Muhammad continued to receive messages from God for the rest of his life.
In 613, Muhammad started sharing his beliefs about God. He didn't have many followers and Mecca's merchents refused to believe there was only one God.
More people started to listen to Muhammads ideas and the rulers of Mecca were not happy. They began to threaten Muhammad's life and eventually Muhammad left to Medina.
In 630, after years of fighting, Mecca gave uo and welcomed Muhammad back in Mecca. Many arabian tribes accepted Islam as their religion. In 632 Muhammad died.
