How did Islam spread so quickly? Islam a muslim community that forever changed the middle east In this paper I will explain how it spread through The message,trade,and conquest. Trade was one major thing that spread Muhammad 's word. Mecca being a trading hub in the Middle East helped the word spread.
Cities in the Muslim World were often political centers, economic center and areas of religious importance during the post classical period. The Muslim World was a place of political centers due to being the foundation of the religion of Islam. Once Islam was created they wanted to spread its religion and it spread to other places and these other countries became Muslim cities. The Muslim world also had economical centers because when Islam spread, they set up trade routes that boosted the economy. As the cities developed they became of religious importance as they built religious structures, all in the Muslim world.
Religions of the Ancient World Of the seven religions/philosophies, most are polytheistic, with Judaism, Christianity, and Islam as exceptions. These three religions are the three major monotheistic religions, meaning they all only believe in one God. Being a Hindu, you should be grateful, strong, patient, gentle, good, generous, and truthful, as said in the Ancient Indian Epic, Mahabharata in 400 B.C. Hinduism has a Caste System (Doc. 3), which greatly influences the Hindu people. The four major castes are: The Brahmins: priests, The Kshatriyas: warriors, rulers, senators, presidents, and majors, The Vaisyas: farmers, merchants, lawyers, and doctors, The Sudras: unskilled workers, and the Other sub-castes: “untouchables” (Doc. 7). Buddhism
Both of the houses of worship, take up offerings, but Conradin believes it is worth more if it is stolen or it is no good. Both religions, have a figurehead God or Sredni Vashtar. It is not stated in the passage, but most christian religions believe in praying to the god. Conradin also prays to Sredni Vashtar, and believes that Sredni Vashtar can hear him even when they are not physically together. Finally, one of the most powerful similarities is that, both religions fear their god.
The to three Religions that I received as my results were Sikhism, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witness. Sikhs believe in deity: God almighty is impersonal, formless ultimate reality and he is the creator. God reveals and manifest himself through all in the universe, but not finite form can be worshipped as god, who is infinite. They believe that after death one’s soul is continually reborn until liberated by the grace of god, at which time the soul merges with god. They don’t believe in the original sin or Satan, they believe that god created all and gave people free will.
It is a monotheistic faith based on revelations received by its founder Muhammed. According to the religion, the angel Gabriel revealed many messages to Muhammed which he shared with what was a polytheistic world at the time. Muslims read from the sacred text of the Qur’an which are said to contain the literal word of God. According to Document 8, Muslims practice The Five Pillars of Faith and must carry out each of their duties. They must make a “pilgrimage to Mecca” at least one in their lifetime.
The early Islamic empire expanded by using different methods such as conquering lands, spreading their religion, treaties, or bribery. According to document B, “We [Abd al-Aziz’s forces] will not harass him [Theodmir], nor remove him from power.” The Muslims spread their religion and many people converted though the Muslims made treaties to keep peace between different lands. Muslims did have to conquer lands where people did not want to convert. According to document A, “The Muslims gathered together, and the Greek army marched against them…
The word Sikh evolves from the word “Sisya” meaning disciple or follower. Sikhism originated the year of 1469 in Punjab (India and Pakistan), which is the land of the five rivers. Sikhism is a religion of ten Gurus, the first Guru being Guru Nanak Dev Ji and the tenth and the last being Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Guru Granth Sahib is the holy book of Sikh in which includes teachings and writings by all the Gurus as well as Sikh, Hindi and Muslim saints that are written in Punjabi. Every Sikh is supposed to keep the five K’s, which also serve to identify him as a Sikh: 1.
Islam is the second biggest religion and fastest growing in the world today. Islam is a religion that Muslims follow and is a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the prophet of Allah. For Muslims, Muhammad is the last prophet and Abraham is the patriarch of the Qur’an, Bible and Torah. Islam is followed by over a billion people and Muslims make up approximately one quarter of the world’s population. Islam spread quickly during the 600’s trade, choice, and conquest.
Christianity and Islam share many similarities with a few fundamental differences. Both religions follow monotheism, though in Islam it is much stricter. Jesus and Gabriel are focal points for Christianity and Islam respectively. God and Allah stand for the same higher power and basis for religion. In Islam, the five pillars are the main difference just as Mary is the mother of Jesus and the beginning of the Christian religions teachings.
In comparison, Buddhism and Sikhism are religions that originated from Hinduism. The differences lie because Sikhism is monotheistic (single God) and Buddhism believes there is no God. Other differences lie in the teachings, practices, idol worshipping, religious laws, symbols and concept of God. Buddhism - Buddhism is the old religion around 624 B.C. - Buddhism talks about self-organization, they do not believe in the Creator. - Buddhism is a monastic community called as the Sangha.
The three aspects of Islam are Tawheed Ar-Rububiyyah which means Oneness of Allah’s Lordship – Believing in Allah alone. Tawheed Al-Asmaa Wal Sifat, maintaining the attributes of Allah. Then comes the third aspect Tawheed Al-Uloohiyyah or Tawheed Al-Ibaadah meaning Oneness of worship.
Jinns in Islam play a very curial role; they are a major part of the unseen world which includes the angels. Jinns were created before humans and they were also created from a denser material that is smokeless fire, the following verse from The Noble Quran explains that, “And We did certainly create man out of clay from an altered back mud.’ “And the Jinn race we had created before, from fire of smokeless flames” (Surah Al-Hijr 15:26-27). This explains that the jinns were before the mankind was created and both of them were created from different material and but for the same purpose i.e. worship of Allah alone, “And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship me alone” (surah Az-Zaariyaat 51:56) Jinns are created just like mankind, the jinns have free will they have the ability to choose to do right or wrong to follow the right path of Islam or to disbelieve.
Sufism was important part of Ottoman religious, political, social and cultural life. In modern times people have come to think that the mysticism(tasavvuf) is separated from life. However, this idea is a mistake in historiography and what is known as an anachronism -a thing belonging to or appropriate to a period other than that in which it exists-. It is a fact that in the 13th century the study of metaphysics was at the center of i’lim. Today we understand the rational mind from information, for, concepts change their meaning over time.
