The one on the left with the large "m" is either Byzantine or an early Islamic coin imitating the Byzantines, dating sometime from the period 600 - 800 AD; I can't see enough details to say anything more about it.

The one at bottom right is Islamic, perhaps from one of the Indian states; the top line in the top pic says "Mohammad", which frankly doesn't help much in narrowing things down.

No idea about the one on the top right.

I think they might all be Islamic. The M on the larger coin looks similar to the one next to it. Byzantine coins don't have that extra hook extending from the center and the base of the m is usually flat and not pointed like this one is.
