119 Muslim Response - Period of the Muslim Empires

Published by Imtiaz Muhsin
This is an interesting study of the History of Islam or the Muslims over the 1400 years.
This article covers the period of the Muslim Empires.
However it has a very different view-point.
You would even call it an interesting viewpoint.
Here we look into the changes and then we study the response of the Muslim populace due to these changes.
You could even say it is a study of the causes and effects of the development of Muslim history and Muslim culture.

Please Note
1.
 
I have had the great privilege, (since Aug 2010), of presenting talks on the weekly Radio Program
‘Culture of Islam’
[
Friday 5.30 to 6.00 am, Radio Sri Lanka - FM 97.4
]2.
 
Since these are Radio Talks, I refer to,
or address the audience as ‘listeners’
 3.
 
I am well aware that the audience to these talks would consist of people belonging to a variety of faiths. So as to make people of all faiths feel included, I very often use words and names that arecommon to all religions.4.
 
For these reasons, I use the name GOD, as well as Abraham, Moses, Jesus etc as well as thenames Allah, Ibrahim (Alaihis Salaam), Moosa (Alaihis Salaam), Easa (Alaihis Salaam) etc5.
 
Muslims by habit usually say ‘Sallallahu Alaihiwasallam’, when the na
me of Prophet Muhammad
is mentioned, and ‘Alaihis Salaam' when the name of a Prophet is mentioned. However, in these
series of talks I have reduced the use of these prayers & sayings to the bare minimum.6.
 
Muslims, also by habit, use a number of Arabic prayers or sayings, such as Alhamdulillah, InshaAllah and so on. Again, I have reduced the use of these prayers or sayings to the bare minimum.7.
 
Sometimes I have to write Arabic words in the English script.I have devised my own way of writing Arabic in English, as follows;

119 Muslim Responses
 Period of the Muslim Empires
Dear Friends,Assalamu Alaikum,The last few talks have been a series on a rather interesting subject.The main objective is to find out whether it is possible that the teachings and practices of Islamcould have changed over its history of 1400 years. Now all you listeners would agree that this would be quite a formidable study.It is!Anyway, let me describe how I am attempting to learn.My first step is to study the history of the Muslim World, from the time of the Prophet to the present.My second step is to break these 1400 years in to clear, obvious, distinguishable periods.I have identified 7 such periods, as follows;1. The Meccan Period
 – 
from the time of Nubuwwath of the Prophet to the Hijra to MedinaPeriod 13 Years
 – 
610 to 622 AD2. The Medina Period
 – 
From Hijrath to the death of the Holy ProphetPeriod 10 years
 – 
622 to 632 AD3. The Period of the Rightly Guided Caliphs or the Khulafaa Ur RaashidheenPeriod 30 years
 – 
632 to 661 AD4. The Period of the Muslim Empires
 – 
Over history there have been many EmpiresThe first being the Ummayyad Empire that began in 661 and the final to fall being the OttomanEmpire in 1926
 – 
this period thus covers almost 1265 years.5. Sandwiched in to the period of the Muslim empires we have 2 other important periods;The age of the Crusades, actually there have been clearly identifiable 4 waves of Crusades, datingfrom 1095 to 1187
 – 
this period covers around 92 years.6. The next sandwiched period is the period of European Colonization of Muslim Lands.This period begins around 1500 and ends around 1963
 – 
around 460 years7. Finally we have the period of Islamic States and Muslims living as minorities in other states.This is the period we now live in.Then my third step. That would be to list out the changes that took place during each of those periods and then try to work out the causes to those changes or events. That is prettystraightforward and can be read off any book on the History of Muslim Empires.But then comes the interesting point, which is actually the fourth step. Try to find out what wasthe reaction or the response of the Muslim population to each of these events, with regard to theteachings and practices of the religion itself.To the religion of Islam itself!Two weeks ago my talk covered the period of the 4 rightly guided Caliphs and last week Icovered the initial period of the Ummayyad Empire.Actually a huge amount of time has to be devoted to these two periods because it is in these two periods that the trend is set, the trend for the rule of the Empires.
This is the period I am hoping to cover in today’s talk
