This helped them expand Islam because they met new religions which helped them expand as well. This is from Document B. According to Document C it stated that they were gift-giving and had a system of stipends which was payment. This shows that they expanded the Islam Empire by exchanging things and money which also leads to expansion.
The early Islamic empire expanded using three methods. These methods included military conquest, political means, and financial incentives. First, the Islamic empire expanded through military force. According to the document A: battle of Yarmuck, the battle was fierce and bloody. 24,000 Muslims took part and 70,000 Greeks were put to death.
According to many sources, Muslims went on military conquests all the way through Africa, up to Spain and all the way to France; also, the military attacked up to Constantinople, across the Tigris River, and all the way to the Indus River in Asia(Doc. C). This map shows that the Muslim military traveled far across three continents and conquered a very large area in 125 years. The last reason that Islam spread so rapidly was the Muslim military that won many important battles and conquered a very large
The Islamic religion spread rapidly through trade, military conquest, political structure, and the overall appeal of the religion. Many of the early Islamic ideas originated from the prophet Muhammad in Saudi Arabia around the 600s. His teachings began in Mecca, a city between the crossroads of numerous trade centers (Scott). Mecca’s location became ideal for the expansion of Islam, as it could be spread by people along the trade routes. In the “Map of Byzantine and Persian Empires and Trade Routes in 570 C.E.” (Document A), it demonstrates how Mecca was in the center of several trade routes.
Between the late 600’s to 700’s, Islamic civilization spread to encompass such an extensive empire by using economic and political practices. They used tactics such as required taxes and tributes for non-Muslims in Arabia by using peaceful coercion, by raiding neighborhood areas for resources, and by deploying a violent self-defense approach against those who opposed against them. The Muslims utilized a false sense of acceptance towards non-Muslims and took advantage of neighboring areas to further themselves economically. The Muslims gave off an appearance of a false-acceptance towards non-Muslims, such as Jews or Christians, in the Arabian Peninsula.
Tyler Rico 5/9/17 Section 2 DBQ Essay During the times leading up the 1500s Christianity and Islam both had different views on merchants and their craft with people from both faiths having varying degrees of opinions on it. Trade increased dramatically after the Mongols came into power and secured the Silk Roads making trade a lot more profitable and a lot less dangerous. This made the issue of trading come to light even more as it became more prevalent in people's everyday life. After the fall of the Mongols western nations raced to find new ways around the Silk Road as they did not want to trade through Muslim controlled land.
(4) The army to specify!(5) In Document 4 where they talk about the Muslim army it states “Muslims towards the inhabitants of the city were like the fury and cruelty of raging tigers.” (6) This shows that their army is very powerful. (7) They were referred to as raging tigers from that it can be told that their army is very strong and powerful but they are also aggressive and will put anything to a complete finish.
After the Muslims took over, the people of the Byzantine Empire told the Muslims how much they loved being under the Muslim rule and that they were willing to help pay the taxes the Muslims needed. This helped Islam spread quickly because the people loved the religion and wanted to be under the Muslim rule which would have people want to convert. However, this is the LEAST important reason because Political Organizations have nothing to do religion and is not inspiring while Military Conquest insures safety and a strong message would appeal to those who need a
Many cities came under control of strong Muslim armies, easily spreading the religion. This is shown by Document C, a map showing conquered territories, created from various sources. Document C states, “Mecca came under Muslim control by 622, Baghdad by 632, Jerusalem by 661, and Saragossa by 661.” This shows that the armies conquered many cities very quickly. Much territory is conquered within 100 years.
Why did Islam spread Quickly? - Trade The Islamic religion spreaded quickly because of trade. Based on the fact, that Islam had trade over many empires. Corresponding to the map on Document A, “ Adding from the profits of caravans was a brisk pilgrimage trade, for Mecca was the site of Arabia 's holiest shrine.
Islam is a religion that controls their follower's daily lives. It quickly spread throughout many large and small civilizations all throughout the world. Two civilizations that Islam affected were the Byzantine Empire and China. The Byzantine empire was the section of Rome that remained after the fall of Rome and was a very successful civilization in its time. During the rise of Christianity, the Byzantine empire became a Christian-based civilization and used the church to solve its political and economic problems that sprang up after the fall of Rome.
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 Ottoman and Mughal empires both used Islam in their culture, economy, wars, and society. It influenced their art, the way they treated non-Muslims, their motivations for war. It is important to note that both empires were influenced differently by their majority religion. However, both the Ottomans and Mughals were heavily influenced as Islam was a major part of everyday life from the art to the bureaucracy.
In the Why Islam Spread So Quickly reading it states, “...A series of ghazu raids against the non-muslims communities in the neighboring countries. The unity of the ummah would be preserved by an outwardly directed offensive [attack].” This relates to the spread of Islam because Muslims use a strategy of raids against non-muslims that would preserve the unity of the ummah. Lastly conquest and war guided Islam to a large population with the help of the Byzantine and Persian Empire.
The Middle East is a place that was the birthplace for many cultures and religions such as Christianity and Islam. As they expanded from this region, both of these religions had good impact on history. However, Christianity and Islam have their similarities in religious beliefs and their differences in expansion between the two religions. Within the time period c. 600 CE to 1250 CE and 1st century to 1000 CE Islam and Christianity began to spread around the world. The two religions spread socially and economically similar but politically different.
