Answer 1

Islam started in the city of Mecca (currently in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) by the revelation of the first verses of Quran by God to Prophet Muhammad through the Angel Gabriel in year 610 AD. Quran revelation on the prophet continued after his immigration to Medina (also in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and until prophet death in year 632 AD.

Answer 2

The true split between Judaism and Islam occurred when Abraham impregnated Hagar, the maidservant of Sarai (Abraham's wife). When Sarai bore Isaac, she sent Hagar and her son (Ishmael) away. This is accounted in Genesis, starting in chapter 16. This is the very beginning of Islam, because through Ishmael, the Islamic people came to be. You will notice that the "father" of both Judaism and Islam is Abraham.

Answer 3

Islam originally began since the first creation. They first creation was made to do something for God, which was worship. The first creation worshiped God. Therefore, submitting to his will. This is what a Muslim is. They submit to God's will. They worship him and only him as he is the Creator. Later, more creations came to be and received revelation to do the same as the Creator wants. It came directly to a man named Adam, of whom is the first human being. Then, continued as the Ten commandments, The Bible, and finally the Quran. They are all the same message except, they came to a single person or being before spreading to more than one. Being humans,we have our own choice of whether we want to accept this message or abandon it.

As mentioned above, Abraham(as) was of those who submitted to God, and brought the message to his people. His people, being so far apart in time from us would've caused much confusion if we were to read or hear them in their dialect. Also, just like in the telephone game , even more confusion would arise if word of mouth is used to tell us about what they have learned. So, every Prophet came to their own people , which is very convenient. Then we get to the last Prophet, Prophet Muhammad (saw). He is the only one that was given the Quran, with it's historic stories and universal morals, and was promised to have this revelation preserved until the end of time.

The Quran has no other versions and is exact same message as it was originally, no additions or subtractions. It speaks of people that is mentioned in other books such as the Bible. The Bible is a book of Islam but we recognize it as corrupted by people after it's revelation, not during.

There are many scientific miracles mentioned in the Quran, discoveries we've only begun to find, and wisdom that we can't fathom.

Islam originally began where ever Allah made his first creation. Answer 4Islam 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 Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, was to hold submission (Islam) to the one and only one God, the Creator, with no partner, no son, no father, no companion, no associate, and no resemblance (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.
  • Islam per God revelation of Quran to Muhammad is called the very name Islam.

Islam religion per God revelation of Quran to prophet Muhammad was founded by the start of Quran revelation by God to prophet Muhammad 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 (also in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) until prophet death in year 632 AD.

Answer 4

The religion Islam began with Mohammad.

Answer 5

Islam religion began in Saudi Arabia (KSA) during 600AD. It was started by Mohammad who was from Kuraish family in Mecca. Mohammad claimed that he got revelations through Jibriel and started preaching his messages in Mecca. He could not get much followers in Mecca, he moved to Medina and was able to get fighting men who was ready to fight for Allah (the god of Meccans). From this point onward he was able to get many followers and his military expeditions helped him to expand his religion. His fighting men were offered virgin, wine and milk in heaven if get killed or booties from the war if not killed.

Answer 6

Islam is not a new religion. All the Prophets preached Islam. Anyhow, we can say that Islam began at Mecca (Makka) in Saudi Arabia in 570 when the last Prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (SAW) started preaching Islam at the age of 40

Answer 7

From the Muslim point of view, Islam per Quran revelation by God to prophet Muhammad (PBUH) began in Makkah (Mecca in English) in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Answer 8

Islam began historically on the Arabian peninsula, in the towns of Mecca and Medina (near the west coast inland from the Red Sea). Muhammad (570-632 CE) preached a message he (and all Muslims) believed to be revealed by God. Muslims believe him to an ordinary man with the extraordinary task of being God's last and greatest prophet. Refer to question below for more information.

Islam means submitting to god's will, as god is eternal, therefore, Islam had no beginning. it is there from the time eternity. Islam began with start of universe creation. refer to question below for details.

Answer 9

Islam began in the holy city of Mecca when Muhammad found out about Allah.

Islam began just like Christianity or Judaism, it is based on the same religion, the Islamic year counting starts with Muhammad migrating the city of Mecca because he accepted Allah (or God in English and same God worshiped in Judaism and Christianity) as the only god. Muhammad started believing in Allah because an angel appeared before him and that angel revealed to him God words. These are the words of the Muslims holy book Quran and hence Muhammad started to spread God revelations to him through the angel Gabriel (or Jibril)

Answer 10

Answer 13

Answer 14

Islam began by universe start of creation, Refer to question below for details.

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"). The following answers should be understood in either of those meanings.

Answer 15

ISLAM was not founded by any human. Islam means submission to Allah, and since Adam (AS) to Muhammad (PBUH), they all sent this message, so Islam was founded in Heaven, where Adam was first placed. ( one opinion)

Answer 16

Islam was founded in Mecca in 610 A.D.. The Muslim lunar calendar is dated from Muhammad's migration from Mecca to Medina (Hijrah).

Answer 17

The preaching of Islam actually starts from Prophet Adam (PBUH) and ends up to Prophet Mohammed (PBUH). Every time when ever these prophet came down to earth, Islam gets refreshed. Prophet Jesus (PBUH) also preached Islam. Those who doesn't believed him completely are called Christians. Prophet Moses (PBUH) also preached Islam. Those who doesn't believed him completely are called Jews The Muslims have a faith in all the prophets till Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) and will be remain in faith until the judgement days occurs.

Answer 18

Islam emerged by start of universe creation. All God creations were created based on Islam, that means full submission to God as the one and only one God with no partner, no associate, and no equivalence.

Answer 19

All God prophets called people to Islam. All the Prophets sent to earth by Almighty God for the guidance of humans preached One and the same religion-Islam. The last prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad (May peace be upon him) was born in Makkah (or Mecca) in 570 AD. He started preaching Islam in 610 AD; per Qur'an God revelation to him through the Angel Gabriel; in Makkah (or Mecca) in the current country of Saudi Arabia. The fundamental belief being: ONENESS of Almighty God, having No Son, No Parents, No Off-spring, No Partner, no companion, no associate, and no equivalence. God is the Sole Creator, Sustainer, Provider and Ruler of all the worlds. Refer to related questions below. Islam began in Mecca 610 AD. 13 years later, Muhammad the prophet (PBUH) traveled from Mecca to Medina (that was called Hijra) and established the first city in Islam. From Medina, Islam spread to the whole Arabian Peninsula, then to Iraq,Syria,Persia and Egypt and from there to the rest of Islamic countries.

Islam is the religion propagated and preached by all the Prophets (May peace be upon them all). Hazrat Adam (AS) was the first Prophet and Muslim. The Muslims are found all over the world. There are 58 independent Muslim countries in the world. Islam means full surrender to and faith in Allah (God in English). Accordingly, Islam was started by start of universe creation where all God creations were created on Islam to God. Howeverm Islam per Quran revelation by God to prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was started in Makkah (or Mecca) in year 610 AD. Islam was started in the Arabian Peninsula, in the city of Mecca.
Islam starts its history from the 1st man on earth "Adam" being exiled from the paradise and sent on earth for a limited period for trail/test & in Islam was revealed to Holy Prophet PBUH in Makkah in 611 A.D.
The last Prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (SAW) was born in Makka, Arabia in 570 AD. He started preaching Islam at the age of 40 when he was commanded by Almighty God through the Arch Angel Gabriel to do so. He then migrated to Madina. Islam developed in and around these two cities.

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.

If you see Islam from a historical perspective, yes. Mohammed founded Islam in Mecca. However, according to Islamic theology, Islam has existed since the Creation of the Universe and, therefore, did not start in Mecca.
