Course Overview

As Muslims our Islamic history is a crucial part of our identity and foundations of our heritage. Islamic education devoid of Islamic history is like a body without it's skeleton. Studying Islamic history helps students understand the various ways Islam was applied to people and society, how Islam developed under diverse landscapes and how it transformed from generation to generation. It was through historical context that sciences grew and the golden era appeared. This was received differently by different cultures and employed in many interesting ways. There are many lessons to be learnt from our history which inform us about how we should move forward in the postmodern era of plural societies and nation states.


Al Balagh Academy is offering this extensive course on The Islamic Golden Age that will cover the expansion of Islam, the rise of the Umayyads; the Abbasid empire and successor states; the emergence of classical Islamic societies and material culture (including architecture, arts, literature); the Crusades and Mongol invasions and Muslim societies’ response; trade and exchange in the Mediterranean and Indian Oceans; the Ottoman/Safavid/Mughal empires; and the anti-colonial intellectual and political responses of new Muslim nation-states.

The course will present the main political events in chronological order; namely 6th century to the arrival of the Ottomans in the Middle East at the beginning of the 16th century and will delve into the social and cultural norms of the medieval Middle East. The course covers a complete study on Medieval Islamic history, providing a foundation for understanding contemporary Muslim societies and transnational Islam.
