Audience Reviews for Islam: Empire of Faith

½

This is like almost three hours on the history of the Islam religion and how it firstly spreads across parts of Europe, Africa, India, Spain like a virus. I quite liked the information it provided, though it is enveloped by liberal agendas and biases towards the Islam faith, so of course you won't hear about the founder Muhammad and his pedophile appetite. It starts by explaining the pre Islamic Arabic animism period and the gradual aceptance and rising governance of Muhammad, then it talks about the rapid growth of Islamic conquests in terms of land and adherents, and next is the scientific era of the Muslims and how their blind faith inspired them to learn about reality. Then it's rough struggles with Christians and their crusaders, then the Ottomans, and last is a guy who reigned for the longest time without losing battles - I forgot his name. Betwixt the narrating history lessons historians from different US colleges opine (Half of them Muslim sounding). It seems that for every evil that Islam conjured, there was majestic beauty and contribution to humanity. Truly in the schizophrenic nature and pattern of the Islamic founder.
