The last and final Prophet of God who came to preach this way of life called Islam is Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him).

May be the question is about the present day Islam. Islam is the religion given to mankind by Almighty God. It came into existence with the first man stepping on the earth. Hazrat Adam (AS) was the first Muslim and first Prophet of Islam. All the Prophets (May peace be upon them all) had been teaching/preaching Islam. The last prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad (May peace be upon him) was born in Mecca, Arabia, in 570 AD. The country is now known as The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He started preaching Islam in 610 when he was 40. Islam teaches universal human brotherhood and equality of all human beings irrespective of caste, creed, color and country. It is the favorite religion of Almighty God. It for all human beings. Almighty God has created us all and loves us
Historically, Islam started around 610, Muhammad ibn Abdullah (the Prophet), began to preach based on revelations he received. In 622 he journeyed with his followers to Yathrib (later Medina) in present day Saudi Arabia and became leader of his new community, or "umma." This inaugurated Year 1 of the Islamic Era. After more than 7 years of jihad, or holy war, against the Meccans and others who rejected his message, Muhammad and 10,000 followers were able to enter Mecca in triumph in 630. Mecca now became Islam's premier holy city, while Medina remained the political capital of the Umma.
Islam is a new religion founded by Prophet Muhammad.
* Muhammad was born around 570 CE.
* Around the year 610 CE, Muhammad, while in Mecca (presently in Saudi Arabia) began to receive Quran revelations from God.
* in 622 CE, he left Mecca with his followers (due to sufferings in Mecca and being subject to assassination plot) to a city in the north named Yathrib (later Medina), where another Muslim community had begun to grow. The date of this emigration. Thee year 622 CE, is the beginning year for the Muslim calendar.
* When the prophet died in 632 CE, Islam was on its way to becoming the faith of millions of followers.
* In Islam Muhammad is regarded as a prophet.Answer 8There are two definitions as when Islam started.
1. Islam in its universal sense:
Islam is an Arabic word that means submission and surrender to God (as the one and only one God). In this sense Islam began by the universe creation where all God creatures were created under their submission (Islam) to God. Upon start of mankind, they are taught through God prophets to be on full submission (Islam) to God.
All prophet missions; including Adam, ..., Noah, ..., Abraham, ..., Moses, ..., Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all); was to hold full submission (Islam) to the one and only one God, the Creator, with no partner, no son, no father, no companion, no associate, and no equivalence (defined as monotheism). In this sense: Islam per God revelation of Torah to Moses is called ,Judaism, Islam per God revelation of the bible to Jesus is called Christianity, and Islam per God revelation of Quran to Muhammad is called the very name Islam as it is the last God religion.
Accordingly, Islam in its universal sense was started by Allah (or God in English and same God worshiped in Christianity and Judaism) by start of universe creation and even before.
2. Islam per Quran:
Islam religion was founded by Allah (or God in English and same God worshiped in Judaism and Christianity) by the start of Quran revelation by God to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the Angel Gabriel (Jibril) in Mecca (currently in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) in year 610 AD. Quran revelation continued also when the prophet (peace be upon him) migrated to Medina (that is also located in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) until prophet death in year 632 AD. It is important to emphasize that Quran is last God holy book. Quran was neither changed nor altered (even on the level of a single letter) since its revelation by God. This explains why only one Arabic version is read and recited and broadcasted everywhere in the world. This is because of many reasons; mainly:
Accordingly, Islam per God revelation of Quran to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) started by start of revelation of the first verse of Quran in year 610 AD.
For many Muslims the term "Islam" has two meanings: the Divine Religion of Submission to God's Will (often called Islam with a small "i") and the Institutionalized Belief as Found in Qur'an and Revealed by Mohammed's Prophecy (often called Islam with a capital "I").
islam with a small "i" is a concept that comes out of Islam with a capital "I" and projects the Established Religion of Islam back into the period before would have identified as Muslim. The purpose of said belief, in a functional sense, is to gird Islam in the history afforded by the Judeo-Christian prophetic lineage and ensure its authenticity. islam also affords the believer in Islam a continuity of tradition which Mohammed only continued and corrected as opposed to having the religion of Islam be an affront or disagreement with other divinely-inspired religions. Since islam is derivative of Islam, it does not actually exist prior to Islam.
Islam, as an Established Religion, was organized and directed by Mohammed, who was born in 570 C.E. at Mecca, in Saudi Arabia. According to Islam, he received revelations from God in Mecca in from the year 610-632 C.E. He was supported by several family members like his uncle Ali Ibn Talib and his first wife Khadija to pursue these prophecies. He converted other members to his nascent religion before being expelled from Mecca to Yethrib (now known as Medina) in 622 C.E. When Mohammed became the Chief Hakam or Judge/Administrator of Yethrib, he received many new revelations and began to ask members of his community to memorize these revelations (along with prior ones). These memorizers (in Arabic Hafeths) would eventually be responsible for the creation of one unified Qur'an. By Mohammed's death, he had conquered all of Arabia and converted most of Arabia to his new faith, establishing the grounds for an Islamic Caliphate, which succeeded him.
