Islam is a divine religion from God (Allah). Since Allah has no beginning and no end so is his religion, Islam. But Islam came to earth first time with the first human in the earth who was a messenger of Allah. So, in the earth, Islam is as long as Humanity.
Allah sent many messengers who were human beings like us to the world to give the message of truth to people so that no one would claim they didn’t have someone to guide.
According to narrations totally 1,25000 messengers were sent to the earth from the beginning till 600 A.D. and Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ) is the final messenger. Prophet Muhammad is not a founder of Islam but a final Messenger.
The first verses of the Holy Quran were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) in a cave named Hira on Mount Al-Nur on the outskirts of Mecca. The holiest site in Islam, the Kaaba, is located in Mecca. The direction of ritual prayer, called the Qiblah, is to the Kaaba in Mecca. The holiest water in the world to Muslims is found in a well named Zamzam in Mecca. Millions of Muslims make pilgrimage to Mecca every year known as Umrah and Hajj. Mecca and Medina will be the only two cities in the world protected by rows of angels that will not let the Anti-Christ (Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal) enter.
