Six months later archangel Gabriel appeared to the virgin Mary in Nazareth, announcing to her that she would give birth to a son, Jesus, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

It was because of these visitations that Muhammad began preaching Allah’s message of peace, equality, and compassion to the people.
