This paper presents an in-depth examination of Muhammad from an Islamic perspective. In particular, the author focuses on Muhammad's role in the creation of the Holy Quran, his influence related to Muslim beliefs and practices and his role in the creation and dissemination of the Five Pillars of Islam, namely, faith, daily prayer, the giving of alms, fasting during the month of Ramadan and the pilgrimage to Mecca. The author describes Muhammad's first religious experience and how he spread this message to the masses. Additionally, the importance of the Islamic belief in one God is also emphasized along with other Muslim outlooks, such as the importance of family. The paper also gives a brief religious history of Islam, including many of the initial conflicts with the pagan religions of the Arabian peninsula. The author concludes that Muhammad was the"interpreter" of the Holy Quran and he transformed an entire culture from one of pagan traditions to the belief in one God.
