Muhammad was born in the year 570, and grew up in Mecca. He was born in a powerful rich family, but was sadly soon orphaned.
More than a decade later, Muhammad got married at 25 to a very wealthy business women.
When Muhammad was 40, he heard a small voice tell him,¨You are the messanger of god.¨ Muhammad believed that a angel named gabriel spoke to him for god. He then started to believe that there was only one god.
So then he started to preaching about the one and only god, Allah, people who believed the same were called Muslims.
He had little success so far, The sadly, Mecca threw out Muhammad and any of his supporters.
So then Muhammad decided, in 662, he then fled with his supporters to Yathrib, or other than know as Medina. This migration was called Hijrah.
