Naissance de l’Islam et l’empire arabo-musulman
At the beginning of the 7th century, the Byzantine and Persian Sassanid Empires were weakened by their relentless wars.
On the Arabian peninsula, a new monotheist religion was born: Islam.
It was inspired by the revelation made to the Prophet Muhammad, who was originally from Mecca.
Over the period of a hundred years, Arab warriors conquered an immense empire which stretched from Spain to Central Asia and produced a brilliant civilization.
