17 Founded by Muhammad (also spelled Muhammed or Mohammed, AD 570–632), Islam dates back to around AD 610. Although belonging to the Banu Hashim clan, one of Mecca’s prominent families, Muhammad had a difficult early lifetime. His father, Abdullah, died almost six months before Muhammad was born. According to Islamic tradition, soon after his birth, Muhammad was sent to live with a Bedouin family in the desert as desert life was considered healthier for infants. At the age of six, Muhammad’s biological mother, Amina, died and he became orphaned.
