    The Islamics had many great achievements but I think their greatest one was building a trade route through their empire. Muslims were able to make such great contributions because they were open minded and had a high tolerance for different cultures.

    Islam, at the time of its origin, was the fastest and largest growing religion, unparalleled by the other religions present. The Muslim religion began in Arabia following the spiritual revelations of Muhammad, who believed himself to be the last prophet of Allah (God). Islam became a defining factor of the Arab empire’s culture and the faith spread just as far and even farther than the empire itself. Seeing as the Islamic religion has lasted up to modern times, it is no surprise that, since it began, changes have occurred or that some things, inevitably, have stayed the same. The changes in Islam include those in the belief of spiritual equality and general unity between those included in the umma, whereas one of the most prominent…

    The video Islam: Empire of Faith was mainly telling you about the history and ways of life of Muhammad, Suelyman, and Mehmet. Although I didn't particularly enjoy watching an educational movie about religion, it was interesting to learn what had happened in the many years before my generation. I enjoyed seeing the very old but astonishingly well structured buildings made of gold and other unique necessities. I found it very impressive that the buildings were still standing hundreds of years later. I didn't have any problems with the film other than it being rather boring, I personally found somewhat of an interest learning about other religions and their beliefs.…

    A golden age was enjoyed by the Abbasids as a result of their support. Advancements started to be made in the Abbasids empire. The Abbasids made new forms of art. Arabesque was created which they used because because using the human form in art can take people's attention away from their faith and some religious leaders thought that people would be encouraged to worship these images. Muslim artists then became very skilled at calligraphy and they used this art to decorate everything from buildings to swords and armor. They also picked up paper making from the Chinese. Once the Abbasids were able to make actual paper, they used it for their bookmaking which then lead to Baghdad becoming a major papermaking center. They made their own forms of literature such as stories and poetry. Muslim scholars borrowed ideas for their astronomy and mathematics which they built upon from ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Indians. For example, al-Khwarizmi borrowed the numerical system and zero from Indian scholars which resulted in the Arabic numbering system. A very accurate calendar was then made for mathematics and astronomy. Muslim doctors improved their medical knowledge upon the discoveries of earlier scientists. Medical scholars wrote books which explained some diseases found and how to cure them. They set up hospitals throughout their empire which increased the safety of people and help prevent…
