Mohammed was born into the tribe which acted as custodian of the Kaaba, a shrine of Mecca. He followed the rules for meditation of his tribe. As a boy he had plenty of opportunity to observe pilgrims and teachers-Jews and Christians among them. Mohammed developed a distaste for the worship of idols of the desert Arab. One day the Archangel Gabriel appeared to Mohammed in a vision. Mohammed reacted with what are believed to be the earliest verses of the Koran. He believed he had been chosen to be a profit of Allah, the true and only God. His death in 632 did not halt the growth of the new faith.
