I'm Muhammad and people believed I was the final prophet sent by God to reveal his faith to mankind.
While i was in a cave meditating, an angel named Gabriel ordered me to recite the words of Allah.
Muslims believe that I continued to receive revelations from Allah. I taught that Muslims should devote their lives to Allah.
In 622, I traveled from Mecca to Medina with my supporters. This journey became known as the Hijra and marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar. Some seven years later, me and my followers returned to Mecca and conquered the region.
I continued my preach until I died in 632
After my passing, Islam began to spread rapidly. A series of leaders, known as caliphs, became my successors. This system of leadership, run by a Muslim ruler, became known as a caliphate.
