According to Islam, there were well over one hundred and twenty four thousand prophets that were taught by God to teach mankind. Every prophet came with his own laws but followed the rules set by the prophets before him. The first prophet, who is believed to be Adam in most religions, was the first human on this earth. In Islam, the last and the most important prophet is believed to be Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). He was the last prophet from God and there will not be any other prophets after him.

Arabia is the largest peninsula on the map of the world. The Arabs call it "Jaziratul Arab” which means the "Island of Arabia”, although it is not an island, being surrounded but water on only three sides. The Arabian Peninsula went through a lot of changes since Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael passed away. Great religions of the world had spread the light of faith, morality and learning in the ages past, but every one of these had been rendered a disgrace to its name by the sixth century of the Christian era. The Arabs had been the followers of Abrahamic religion in the olden times and had the distinction of having the first house of God in their land, The Ka'bah. Three hundred and sixty idols had been installed within the Ka'bah-the house built by Abraham for the worship of the one and only God. The Arabs actually paid their divine honors not merely to sculptured idols, but venerated all types of stones and fetish.
