Muslim tradition views Muhammad (c. 570 – June 8, 632) as the seal of the prophets. With Muhammad’s death in 632, disagreement broke out over who would succeed him as leader of the Muslim community (Caliph). The first four caliphs are known as al-khulafā’ ar-rāshidūn (“Rightly Guided Caliphs”).

Under them, the territory under Muslim rule expanded deeply into the parts of the Persian and Byzantine territories. Today, Islam is the world’s second-largest religion.
