It may be mentioned that born in 570 AD, Mohammad is believed to be the last Prophet of Islam, one of the most widespread religions of the world. The Muslim era is said to have begun with his emigration from Mecca to Medina in 622 A.D., the year of the Hizra. He described himself as the messenger of God and is said to have received ‘Koran, the holy text of the Islamic faith, from the Almighty at the age of 40. Several years later, he returned to Mecca, where the ‘Kaaba’ was established as the goal of pilgrimage for Islamic devotees.
