Beliefs[edit | edit source]

Islamic belief revolves around the concept of monotheism, emphasizing the oneness of Allah as the creator, sustainer, and sole deity worthy of worship. Muslims believe in the teachings of the Quran, which is considered the final revelation to humanity, and the example set by the Prophet Muhammad as recorded in the Hadith. The Five Pillars of Islam form the framework of faith and practice, including the declaration of faith (Shahada), prayer (Salah), fasting (Sawm) during the month of Ramadan, charity (Zakat), and pilgrimage (Hajj) to Mecca 🕋 for those able. Central to Islamic belief is the concept of accountability and judgment in the afterlife, where individuals are rewarded or punished based on their deeds and adherence to Islamic principles.

More extreme variants of Islam includes terrorist ideologies like Jihadism.

Caliphates[edit | edit source]

A caliphate or khilāfah (Arabic: خِلَافَةْ [xi'laːfah]) is an institution or public office under the leadership of an Islamic steward with the title of caliph, a person considered a political-religious successor to Muhammad and a leader of the entire Muslim world (ummah).

History[edit | edit source]

Three Caliphates [edit | edit source]

The first Islamic Theocracy is commonly thought to be the Rashidun Caliphate. It was founded in 632 after the death of Muhammad. But, before the Rashiduns, there was the Medina Islamic Government which was ruled by Muhammad. During the leadership of Muhammad, the Medina Islamic Government conquered much of pre-Islamic Arabia. After Muhammad died in 632, Abu Bakr became the first Rashidun Caliph. The Rashidun Caliphate would expand in pretty much all directs, expanding the Islamic religion far and wide. After the collapse of the Rashidun Caliphate in 661, the Umayyad Caliphate was created. The Umayyads are mostly remembered for conquering Iberia with the helps of the Berbers and Moors. After the Umayyads, Islam split into multiple Caliphates. The main one was the Abbasid Caliphate, which was eventually conquered by the Mongols in 1258, but came back into existence in 1261. The Abbasids were also the Caliphate that existed during the Crusades. The Abbasids lost their last lands in 1517, after which the title of 'Caliphate' was passed to the Ottoman Empire.
