Muhammad Born in AD 570

Was a merchant by trade In AD 610 he was meditating and fasting in a cave when

he was suddenly visited by the angel Gabriel. Gabriel commanded him to recite but Muhammad could not,

finally he was forced to recite by a supernatural force○ This was the beginning of the Quran

This experience was so traumatizing for Muhammad that he believed that he had been demon possessed.

His senior wife encouraged him to continue with these encounters.

After this Muhammad began his career as the chosen prophet of Allah.
