Definition of Muhammad in English:

( Circa 570–632), Arab prophet and founder of Islam.

In circa 610 in Mecca Muhammad received the first of a series of revelations which, as the Koran, became the doctrinal and legislative basis of Islam. In the face of opposition to his preaching he and his small group of supporters were forced to flee to Medina in 622 (the Hegira). He then led his followers into a series of battles against the Meccans. In 630 Mecca capitulated, and by his death Muhammad had united most of Arabia
