MUHAMMAD the Prophet and his family


MUHAMMAD (MAHOMET) of the Baun Hashim tribe, b ca 570, d 632, m ca 594 the wealthy widow KHADIJA by whom he had a dau FATIMA who married his cousin ALI.. MUHAMMAD’s friend Abu Bakr was elected as the first Caliph (632-4). He was succeeded as 2nd Caliph by Omar (634-44) who set up a board of electors for succeeding Caliphs and was murdered by a Persian slave. His elected successor was Othman (644-55) who was disliked and murdered at his prayers, to be followed as 4th Caliph by MUHAMMAD’s son-in-law ALI (655-61). ALI in turn was murdered and his eldest son HASAN submitted to the successful Omayyad leader Muawiya, Caliph (660-80) who nominated his son Yazid I as successor (680-3), but this was opposed by the Medinese in the south who elected Abdallah as their Caliph (680-92). Meanwhile the Iraquis supported HUSAIN, the second son of ALI, and although he was soon murdered (680) this gave rise to the Shi’a sect and its tradition that only the descendants of Mahomet through his daughter FATIMA could be true Imans (heads of the Faith) and Caliphs (successors of the Prophet).

                Arab power in the north had become centred in Damascus, where MARWAN I, a cousin of Muawiya, succeeded as Caliph (683-5) and conquered Egypt. He was succeeded by his son Caliph ABD-al-MALIK (685-705) who overthrew the Medinese in Iraq and his lieutenant Hajjaj captured Mecca and killed the Caliph Abdullah of Medina. In the reign of ABD-al-MALIK’s son Caliph Walid I (705-15) they expanded the Omayyid empire to the river Indus in India and across north Africa to Spain. The Omayyid Caliph HISHAM I (724-43) was followed by four Omayyid Caliphs in a year, the last, Marwan II (744-50) was overthrown by the Abbasids, descendants of the Prophet’s uncle Abbas, with the first of their dynasty being Saffah (750-4).
