The Biography &history of Islam concerns the political, economic, social, and cultural developments of the Islamic civilization. Despite concerns about the reliability & Biography of early sources, most historians believe that Biography of Islam originated in Mecca and Medina at the start of the 7th century. Muslims however believe that Biography of Islam did not start with Muhammad(S.A.W), but that it was the original faith of others whom they regard as Prophets, such as Jesus, David, Moses, Abraham, Noah and Adam etc..

History of Islam

In 610 CE, Muhammad began receiving what Muslims consider to be divine revelations. Muhammad’s message won over a handful of followers and was met with increasing opposition from notables of Mecca. In 618, after he lost protection with the death of his influential uncle Abu Talib, Muhammad migrated to the city of Yathrib (Medina). With Muhammad’s death in 632, disagreement broke out over who would succeed him as leader of the Muslim community which was eventually resurrected leading to the First Fitna. The dispute would intensify greatly after the Battle of Karbala, in which Muhammad’s grandson Hussein ibn Ali was killed by the ruling Umayyad Caliph Yazid I, and the outcry for revenge divided the early Islamic community.
