The Prophet Muhammad

The Prophet Muhammad

When Muhammad received the first of the revelations he was unsure what to do. At first he thought he might have been going mad, it was a little unusual to have God speaking to you. Soon though he realised that he was being spoken to by Allah and that he had to spread the word to as many people as he could. He started to preach in Mecca, the town in which he had grown up. Many Rich  people in Mecca disliked what Muhammad had to say. He opposed the worshipping of idols at the Ka'ba and said that it was wrong to be greedy.  Poorer people in Mecca soon started to believe in Muhammad and soon there was a small group of Muslims following Muhammad.

The rich were worried by this. They could lose their money, power and religion if Muhammad wasn't stopped. Muhammad, concerned for the safety of his followers and himself escaped to Medina. In Medina people were much more welcoming to Muhammad and the first Muslim community was established.
