Description

9 week course taking place once a week on Saturdays, this course is open to both males and females.


Introduction

The rich heritage and matchless of history of the Islamic World has intrigued Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Beginning with the Golden Age of the Prophet (peace be upon him) until our times, the Islamic World has seen the rise and fall of some of history’s most epic rulers and civilisations.

We have structured this unit so that it provides you with a holistic overview of Islam’s history, beginning with the first caliph Sayyiduna Abu Bakr right up to the Ottoman Period and into the modern age.

You will be introduced to key figures and dynasties along with their contributions to the world. It’s an intriguing tale of piety, politics, deceit, heroes, and villains which will take you across Arabia, India, North Africa, and Europe.

What will I learn?

You will learn about the:

Rashidun Caliphate: God’s Law on Earth

Omayyad Dynasty: Conquests and Captives

Abbasid Dynasty: Knowledge, Wisdom, and Bloodshed

Andalusian State: The Mediterranean Jewel

Mameluke Dynasty: The Slave Kings

Ayyubid Dynasty: Liberating Palestine

Moghul Empire: At the Heart of India

Ottoman Empire: The Gunpowder Nation


What will I achieve?

By the end of this unit, you should be able to:

Chart the expansion of various Islamic dynasties across 1300 years.

Analyse the impacts of Islam’s history on the current state of Muslims.

Evaluate the nature of significant events, like the Crusades, from Muslim and Western sources.
