Muhammad is the founder and chief prophet of Islam and the source for the Quran. He was born in 570 AD in the city of Mecca, shortly after his fathers death. Later, the "highly praised" as he was called passed away in 632 AD.

Muhammad's First Revelation

According to Islam, Muhammad's fist revelation occurred when Muhammad was 40 in the cave of Hira. He was commanded by God, through His angel, Gabriel, to declare His Oneness to the idolaters and polytheists of the whole world, and to deliver the message of peace to an embattled humanity. Gabriel commands him to recite the first lines of chapter 96 of the Koran.

In addition to the main Five Pillars of Faith in Islam, the Muslim beliefs also consist of Angels, in example Gabriel.

Muslims believe that all the prophets and messengers were created human beings who had none of the divine qualities of God.

Muslims believe in the Day of Judgment (the Day of Resurrection) when all people will be resurrected for God’s judgment according to their beliefs and deeds.

Muslims believe in Al-Qadar, which is Divine Predestination, but this belief in Divine Predestination does not mean that human beings do not have freewill. Rather, Muslims believe that God has given human beings freewill. This means that they can choose right or wrong and that they are responsible for their choices.

The Quran is the most important book in Islam. It contains the teachings and story of the chief prophet of Islam, Muhammad. The Quran, whose name means "recitation" in Arabic, is the sacred text of Muslims and the highest authority in both religious and legal matters.

It is divided into 114 surahs (chapters) of widely varying length, which, with the exception of the opening surah (fatihah), are generally arranged from longest to shortest.

Most of the Quran is written in the first person plural, with Allah as the speaker. When Muhammad himself speaks, his words are introduced by "Say," to clarify he is being commanded by Allah to speak

Muslims believe the Quran to be a flawless record of the angel Gabriel's revelations to Muhammad from 610 until his death in 632 AD.

Islam had a tremendous impact on world history as well as the present-day, mostly because of the religion's magnitude.

Throughout the course of our modern history, the largest impact Islam has left on the world is arguably the conflict that has arose, not from Islam alone, but how religions have interacted with it as well as others.

Another effect of the spread of Islam was an increase in trade. Unlike early Christianity, Muslims were not reluctant to engage in trade and profit; Muhammad himself was a merchant.
