Beyond Battles and Conquests: Islamic Civilization Spreading the Light
Muslims through ages are always committing a big mistake connecting the Seerah of the Prophet ﷺ to only the series of battles he fought and ascribing the Islamic History to only the conquests. One of the common features for all lands Islam entered is building local infrastructure and governing system by utilizing the local resources compared to the western colonizers who used to steal the resources of their colonies. Throughout the golden age of the Islamic History, Islam created civilization hubs spreading the knowledge and technology for all humanity such as the bright examples in Baghdad, Damascus, Egypt, Qairawan, Andalusia, Persia, etc. How can we study, understand and teach the Seerah and Islamic History beyond the battles and conquests?
