I have decided to research the history of Islam, and I will create a blog showing what I have done and how I have gone about doing it.
Organizing my work
I got a lever arch file and put in a file divider with six sections. I also created a folder on my computer and named it Islamic History. Then I created 6 folders inside my main folder and named them as follows:
I also named the sections in my lever arch file the same. These are the 6 eras of Muslim history I will research
I needed a time line for the 6 ere for Islamic history. This is what I found.
Prophet’s Madina 622 CE 10 years
Khilafah Rashidah 632 CE 30 years
Khilafah Umayyah 661 CE 90 years
Khilafah Abbassiyah 750 CE 760 years
Khilafah Uthmaniya 1517 CE 400 years
Nation States 1924 CE
These are roughly about right. The number of year each era lasted has been rounded so that it is easier for me to remember.
I also made a title page for each section of my leaver arch file, printed it off and inserted it in the correct place in my file. I needed maps of the past witch was hard to find Khilafah Uthmaniya and Abbasiyah.
I found some facts about the Uthmaniya , Abbasiyah and the prophets Medina. I found some maps of the Abbsiyah
I researched how the Umayyad ruled I used this web site:
I searched up on how the umayyad lost their power to the Abbasids.
I wrote what I remembered about how the Umayyad ruled and how they lost their power.
Now I’m going to start the Abbasid era, how they lost their power and the battles that took place.I will explore how the fatimids rose to power in Egypt.
The Fatimids were people who wanted the descendants of Ali to rule so they broke apart and they separated from the Khilafah, because they got power in Egypt this separated north Africa from the rest of the Islamic state.
The Fatimids belonged to the Ismaili sect of Shi’ism, which many Islamic scholars historically have classified as outside of the fold of Islam itself.
i used the this web site http://lostislamichistory.com/article/ I started the crusaders they were Christians who attacked the Muslim lands to get Jerusalem off the fatimids. The Turks who saw them selves as the defenders of the faith fought them but were over powered as no help came from Baghdad or the other provinces
Crusaders entered through Anatolia and captured land along the coast up to Jerusalem. The crusaders went all the way to Jerusalem they killed everyone.The caliph was weak he did not do much. The Muslims were disunited that is why the crusaders found it easy.
on the web site above it tells you about crusaders n three parts invasion,occupation and liberation.
Around 100 years later the Mongols came in the Islamic state they laid waste to the land and the rivers were filled with ink. I wrote what they had done and I located on the internet were the battles were. I also got some maps showing where the battles took place.
