How did Muslims Conquer Arabia?

How did Muslims conquer Arabia? - The Start of the Caliphate - Part1

The early Muslim conquests, also referred to as the Arab conquests and the early Islamic conquests began with the prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the 7th century. He established a new unified polity in the Arabian Peninsula which under the subsequent Rashidun and Umayyad Caliphates saw a century of rapid expansion.

Updates: At the Battle of Badr, the Meccans were not led in battle by Abu Sufyan, they were led by Abu Jahl also known as Amr ibn Hisham. "Medina" means "City" and the name was changed to "Medina tun Nabwi" which means "City of the Prophet" and was shortened to just "Medina".
