Islam was started in the Mecca and Medina areas of present day

Saudi Arabia in 610 when Mohammad started reciting the Qu'ran from

remembered Judaism, Christianity and the local pagan religions He

recited to his scribe and father-in-law who became the first caliph

at Mohammad's death in 633. Thus Islam began in 610.

Islam is as old a religion as human history. The first human,

Hazrat Adam (AS) was the first Muslim and first Prophet. All the

prophets sent by Almighty God for the guidance of humans preached

one and the same religion - Islam. Its basic beliefs being: ONENESS

of Almighty God. Belief in Angels, Prophets, Day of Judgement, Life

Hereafter etc. The last Prophet of Islam was Hazrat Muhammad

Mustafa (May peace be upon him). He started preaching Islam in

570 AD when he was about 40 years of age. He started preaching

Islam at Makka, Saudi Arabia.
