Abstract

The Prophet Muhammad was born in 571 CE at Makka (Mecca), the capital of present-day Saudi Arabia. His father died before he was born and he lost his mother when he was six-years-old. At 25 he married Khadija who was 15 years his senior. Together they had six children. The Prophet was deeply grieved when she died. Muhammad received his first revelation when he was 40-years-old and continued to receive revelation until he departed from this world. The Holy Quran was revealed over 23 years. Muhammad dictated his revelations to scribes who wrote them down and then he checked them for accuracy. These writings form the basic religious teachings and beliefs of Islam for society. Muhammad introduced his followers to monotheism and disciplined patterns of worship and morality. By the time of his death there were more than 100,000 followers and the entire Arabian Peninsula had submitted to Islam. In a short period of time Muhammad established the foundations of Islamic Civilization.
