Born in 570 in a Arabian city called Mecca, Prophet Muhammad was orphaned and brought up by his uncle, Abu Talib
A few years later, he worked as a merchant and a shepherd, at age 25 he was married. He also helped his people in his community.
Muhammad wasn't happy with his life in Mecca even though he had a healthy family. So he decided to leave and spend his time at a cave to find a way to help his people who were greedy and selfish.
During that time, Angle Jibreel (Gabriel) sent Muhammad a message from God and after reading that message Muhammad went back to Mecca and preached it to his people.
Muhammad only got a few followers and the ones that didn't follow treated Muhammad and his followers horribly, so they fled to Medina where Muhammad got more followers.
Muhammad came back to Mecca and conquered it, but he didn't punish those who forced him out and so Islam was born. Years later Prophet Muhammad died, but years in between he got messages from God that later became the Quran.
