Summary

The religion of Islam was founded in the Arabian peninsula in the early 7th century AD. Followers of Islam, known as Muslims, believe in one god who they call Allah. They believe Allah to be good and kind and to have absolute power. 

Muhammad, the founder of Islam, was born in 570 in Mecca. Originally a shepherd and caravan conductor he claimed to have received his first revelation from God in the year 610. After some years of teaching Allah's will he declared himself to be the prophet of God.

The Koran, or holy book of Islam, was said to have been passed on to Muhammad by Allah and was written by his followers.
