Muhammad was born in 570 C.E in the town of Makkah. His mother sent him to live with a nomadic tribe in the desert.
The Night Journey
In 610 C.E, Muhammad went to pray in a cave in the mountains. While there, he was visited by the angel Gabriel who declared him to be God's prophet.
Around 613 C.E, Muhammad began to preach to other Makkans, which some converted to become Muslim. Most Makkans rejected him, though, and called him a liar, tortured his followers, and even started a boycott which resulted in his family members dying.
In 619 C.E, a winged horse took Muhammad to Jerusalem, the city where the Muslim directed their prayers. While there, he met and prayed with earlier prophets. The horse guided him through the seven levels of heaven where me met God.
In 622 C.E, Muhammad and his followers left Makkah on a journey known as the hijrah to Madinah. Muhammad developed a Muslim community there. In 624, fighting broke out between the Muslims and the Makkans. They evetually made a truce.
In March 632, Muhammad led his final pilgrimage. In Makkah, he delivered his Last Sermon. Shortly after he returned to Madinah, Muhammad died.
