I think I am going to learn something new today.... MOM!
so there was a prophet name "Mahummad" which he was born in 570 B.C and before he became a prophet he was more of a job like -Shepard and basically he was known fora well known prophet and he would be a very caring man but went it came to his beliefs no one followed .
Muhammad wanted to escape due to threats so he and his followers went on something called "hiraj" a journey with his followers and long story short he returned to mecca because he thought that it was safe to return home if Allah was by his side
Muhammad had passed away and the new Caliph was Abu Bakr and he spreaded Islam through Jihad and most of these people were Muslims which overuled some people at the time and the Abu Bakr died but in order to rule they needed to be Muhammad's blood family. Damn Sally , you've couldn't have searched this up on google ... I'm busy trying to feed you!
