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.

Similar to the Byzantine Empire, China was very successful before Islam. The main difference was that China remained successful all throughout the spread of Islam while the Byzantine Empire
In the city of Mecca, a man started a new religion known as Islam. This man was Muhammad who was born in about 570 C.E. While going to pray in a cave in the mountains of Mecca, an angel named Gabriel visited Muhammad. Gabriel proclaimed that Muhammad was a prophet, messenger of God.

In Africa during the Post-Classical era, 600-1450 CE, the Saharan was no longer a barren wasteland hardly suitable for travel, but, an essential part of both North African and Sub-Saharan West African societies. Camels and caravans allowed for quicker and more effective traveling. With trading becoming increasingly popular in this area, it provided the resources to build new and larger political structures. During this era, Africa’s economy began to change and the western part of Sub-Saharan was no different. With the Trans-Saharan trade routes ability to increase with the help of wealthier Islamic states, it allowed for the spread of religious and political ideas such as larger empires and the Islamic faith in which both greatly influenced
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.

By creating a religion that only some people worshipped and by bringing families and old clans to war with each other, Muhammad was a divider of his people. First, Muhammad’s new religion, Islam, disrupted his village. People were angry because only some people worshipped Islam and some didn't.
