Arabians believed in many gods, also known as polytheism and engaged in the practice of idolatry, which is the worship of different objects. The Ka'bah is a cubed shape building by Abraham to honor God in the city of Mecca. During 570 CE the Ka'bah was filled with idols that the Arab worshiped. Arabia was divided into groups.

Mecca attacked with overwhelming forces 3 times and
lost all 3 times.
These battles were the beginning of the Islamic Jihad,
which some translate as “Holy War” but is better
translated as “striving”, striving to follow God’s
commands.In 630 CE Muhammad led a group of 10 000 into Mecca
with little opposition. There he removed all the idols
from the Ka’bah.
The basis of the Islamic religion was revealed to
Muhammad, who was born in 570CE, through direct revelations from God, by the Angel Jibreel or Gabriel.In 610, the month of Ramadan (fasting), Muhammad retreated to a cave on Mount Hira, where the angel Gabriel revealed the beginnings of what became the religion of Islam.
