  • In 610 C.E. Muhammad went to pray in a cave in the mountains and that is where that he received the call to be a prophet. That is also where he received a visit from the angel Gabriel.
  • Muhammad and his followers memorized what Gaberial said to him. Eventually, some wrote down these words and collected them in the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam.
  • Around 613 C.E., the number of Muslims grew and the powerful clans of Makkah started a boycott to make Muhammad's followers give up Islam.
  • In 622 Muhammad and his followers left Makkah on a journey know as the hijrah.
  • Shortly after Muhammad's return to Madinah, he died. When he died, most of central and southern Arabia was under Muslim control. After the prophet's death, his companions had to choose a new leader to preserve the community.
