to Spread
The Prophet Muhammad had united much of the Arabian Peninsula under Islam before he died. He ruled Medina and would ally with other nomadic tribes in the peninsula and tried to spread Islam at the same time. He also used military skills when Medina was against attacks. Here are examples of Muhammad's most significant battle:
Political Leader
He had the ability to solve issues between people, he also judged fairly, so everyone trusted him and asked him to be the judge. He thought making peace between people is the best way to solve issues and arguments.

Religious Leader
The messages of the Prophet as viewed and analyzed in this study have a multipurpose implications both for the Muslim world and the Western world. His skillful use of rhetoric demonstrated his commitment for meaningful competent communication for humankind in general. His speeches demonstrated that he sought to see all humankind from the lens of kindness, modesty, moderation, justice, liberty, generosity and love.

He spent 13 years in Mecca to advocate forgiveness for revenge, calm for violence, peace for war, and the call of justice for tyranny.
The conquering of Mecca was a famous example. It contained about 10,000 people and was the most powerful force the Muslims ever assembled and was fully kept secret. They then used many techniques like lighting fire to make Maccans overestimate the size of the army, etc. After only about two weeks they finally succeeded.
Prophet Muhammad communicative values of liberty, justice, modesty, and politeness were matched with practical deeds. The people saw this action of his and identified with. Prophet Muhammad' skills as manifested in his speeches demonstrated to the eyes of all humankind that he was indeed a great leader worthy of note.
The Prophet Muhammad believed in Allah. He began preaching and taught this idea to people in Mecca, but it was first persecuted by Meccans, so he led his supporters on Hijrah.
The town Medina means "City of the Prophet of Allah", where Muhammad first succeed to attract his first followers after being driven out of Mecca. Al-Masjid-an-Nabaw, "the Mosque of the Prophet" is also located in Medina, where it was built on top of the site of Muhammad's home and where he was buried.
The Mosque of the Prophet
The Mosque of the Prophet, Al-Masjid al-Nabawi, is now one of the largest mosque in the world. It was originally Muhammad's house, where he settled after Hijrah to Medina. Muhammad and other two early Muslim leaders Abu Bakr and Umar are buried there.

Holy Books
The Qur'an
The Sunnah
"Qur'an" means "the recitation". Muslims believed that God has protected the Qur'an from distortion or corruption. Qur'an is a book that was spoken by God, that Muhammad's followers wrote down into a holy book, a book of guidance and teaches people the right thing. It also includes some important historical events and emphasizes the moral significance.
The Sunnah is an Arabic word which means "usual practice", and it is based on the Qur'an, but explains the unclear parts in the text and provides more specific details. Muslims practiced the Sunnah and to fulfill the divine injunctions, carry out religious rights, and live according to the will of God are what Sunnah teaches.

Thank You for listening to our presentation!
The Five Pillars
The punishments under the Sharia Law are always fair, even if you are the son/daughter of a king. The punishments could be severe, but aren't barbaric. If you committed the crime, the punishments are usually done in public, so that people could learn a lesson from what they saw and consider if it was the right thing to do.
The Prophet Muhammad said: "When Allah wants good for his servant, he hands out his punishment in dunya (worldly life), while if he wants evil for his servant, he delays his punishment until the Day of Judgment."
The Five Pillars of Islam are the five basic rules that every Muslim should obey:
Shahadah: Declaring that Allah is the only God, and Muhammad is the God's Messenger.
Salat (Prayer): Pray five times a day.
Sawm (Fasting): Obey the rules during the month of Ramadan.
Zakat: Donate 2.5% of savings to the people who need help.
Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca): Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime.
Pray 5 times a day
Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) passed away at the age of 62, leaving behind a message and a legacy that has survived to our day. History tells us he was a religious, political, and military leader from Mecca who unified Arabia into a single religious polity (a form or process of civil government or constitution) under Islam and became one of the main powers in the Middle East.
It is the legal framework within which the public and some private aspects of life are regulated for those living in a legal system based on Islam. Sharia deals with all aspects of day-to-day life, including politics, economics, banking, business law, contract law, sexuality, and social issues.
Throughout his childhood he lived mostly in poverty but Mohammed's family were strong believers in the God Allah. Mohammed became the Messenger of Allah, and his uncle served and protected him until his death.
