The swiftness of the Arab conquests led to an establishment of an Islamic empire that has lasted to present times because the diminishing power of the Roman Empire led to a Western European cultural deterioration and a declining influence of Christianity. The establishment and growth of the Islamic empire will be illustrated in this paper, along with an explanation of what happened to the Islamic influence in Hispania, now modern-day Spain. The establishment of an Islamic state began with the Prophet Muhammad leading a group of Muslims on a migration from Mecca to a northern rural settlement, now referred to as Madina. Before the death of the Prophet Muhammad in 632, Muhammad converted most of the Arabian tribes to Islam, and Mecca became the new Islamic state’s capital.

The Mojave Desert is a vast area that expands predominantly in southeastern California. The desert also reaches parts of Nevada, Arizona and Utah; it expands over more than 25,000 square miles (Desert USA). There are no defined boarders of the desert. Finding a center can be difficult, however through the use of a combination of latitude and longitude, elevation, geology, and indicator plants boarders can be established and a center to the desert can be found. Through the use of the $500,000 that The Mojave Desert Geography Council has received, we will locate the center of the Mojave Desert and use the money we have received to build a monument that is dedicated to the Gopherus agassizii, also known as the Desert Tortious, at the center of
