Saudi Arabia is the home to Islam’s two holiest sites in Mecca and Medina. The religion was founded by Prophet Muhammad in the city of Mecca where he was born and where the Kaaba (the House of God that was rebuilt by Prophet Abraham) is located. The Prophet then migrated to the city of Medina, where he established the first Muslim community. He spent the last few years of his life in medina, where he was then buried along with his closest family members and companions. These two cities are crucially important in understanding the early days of Islamic history, establishing the political and religious scenes to the movement and growth of the religion of Islam.
