Mecca was different than it is today. They worshipped many Gods, and wealthy merchants tortured and enslaved people.
Then, in 570 C.E., A boy named Muhammad was born in Mecca. He was viewed as the the last and greatest prophet of Islam. I cannot show him in the next panels because in Islam, it is forbidden to depict Muhammad.
Muhammad worked to herd sheep for a woman named Khadija, whom he married shortly.
Almost at the age of 40 years old, Muhammad met the angel Gabriel in Hira cave and Gabriel told Muhammad the Qu'ran. He tells Khadija about this, who becomes the first Muslim, or follower of Islam.
You are the messenger of God
Muhammad preaches and gathers many followers, but they are tortured by the Makkans
Muhammad his followers go to Yathrib (Madinah) to seek refuge from the Makkans and to slove conflicts there.
