“We’re taught that ‘our’ history is the history of Christianity in Europe, when in fact, ‘our’ history is the story of people on the planet.”
I made this video for people who don’t know much about early Islamic history. I made it because I find it weird and disconcerting that we in the so-called West spend so much time thinking and worrying about the Islamic world—but by and large we don’t spend very much time delving into the history of Islam and understanding the world from which it emerged.
So…yeah. I really think you’re going to learn something this week.
