Why did Muhammad begin his teachings in Mecca?
Simply .. caz he was born there and then his teachings spread all over the world thx Allah ..
according to Islam first time Quran was revealed in mecca when prophet was praying in a cave in mecca about 1400 years ago and until end of his life the revelations continued and the collection of Revelations of Muhammad formed Quran book. Muslims believe the angel Gabriel delivered the revelations from God to prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
The people of Mecca did not approve of the religion of Islam. So for Muhammad and his followers not to get killed for not practicing Mecca's current religion, he fled from Mecca to Medina, and made the hegira. As soon as he convinced the people of Medina to follow Islam, he returned to Mecca with his followers and conquered Mecca. Present Muslims make a pilgrimage to Mecca, otherwise known as the hajj, to represent Muhammad…
YES. ________________________________________________ Islam began by start of universe creation. However, Islam per God Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad began in Makkah (or Mecca). Refer to question below. All the Prophets (May peace be upon them all) had been preaching Islam. The last Prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad (May peace be upon him) was born in Mecca (Makka). So, in a way, you may say that it began in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
