Muhammad was born in 570 CE to a merchant tribe in Mecca. Unfortunately, both of his parents died before he was 6 years old, so his Uncle, Abu Talib, raised him.
Before becoming a prophet, he was married and had a son; he was also a respected merchant and traveled. However, became increasingly concerned with material gain and rich and poor.
Around the age of 40, he started to receive revelations from Allah while meditating in the hills of Mecca. They were sent to him through the Archangel Gabriel.
He began preaching to his family and clan. By 620, he had a small majority of Mecca following him, and by 650, his followers began compiling his teachings as the Qu'ran.
Facing certain persecution from elites, Muhammad flees to Yathrib (Medina) in 622. This is known as the Hijirah, migration, and it marks the beginning of the Islamic calendar.
After many battles with Meccan clans, a treaty was created in 628 that allowed Muslims to return. In 629, Muhammad returned to Mecca with nearly 10,000 converts.
