ABSTRACT
The article discusses how Prophet Mohammed founded the Islam religion in Saudi Arabia. According to the article, Mohammed's conviction started when he heard the voice of angel Gabriel in a cave telling him that he was a prophet. He then spread what he had heard to his family and friends and established a place of worship called the Ka'bah in Mecca. He wrote the words he had heard in the cave in a book which he named the Qur'an and to which he left to his followers after his death.
