This is not something that are fly-by-night, this is something big and important. Islam has come to stay.

 

In just a hundred years, Muhammad vision had transformed the spiritual and political map of the world. And his followers had established an empire larger than Rome. But Mohammed never lived to see it. In the 11th year, of the Islamic calendar, 632 AD, only two years after the taking of Mecca, Muhammad died, Medina fell into despair. For days, the city was consumed with sorrow and ceremony. “he’s known to have said that he wants to be buried very simply, with no marker over his grave. He didn’t want people to worship his grave. That would interfere with their worship of god”. God has spoken to them only through Muhammad. Now that the prophet has left them, perhaps god would as well. “Muhammad does set up with crisis and the young Islamic community. The question of succession was the first thing that really occupied people’s concerns. At this point, there was diversion of opinions as to how the community should go about choosing a new leader. According to the Shiite's faction, / the Shiite al Ali, Muhammad had indeed designated Ali the son-in-law and cousin as a successor. The opinion that came to be the majority of opinion or the Sunni’s opinion tell that Mohammed had not appointed the successor during his life. But it said after I'm gone, choose one from among your peers ,from among the elders . And from the house that came out the man who would be his successor, Caliph Abu Bakr, and he addressed people and said if you worship Mohammed now that he is died if you worship god now that he lives forever.” Here was the secret to Islam's strength and profound influence. The unifying power of one god, merciful and compassionate. The part of one people bound by a common faith. Mohammed did not lead the conquest or create the empire to come. The transforming power of his message did.

 

Part of that message would spring a font of knowledge that would transform humanity as Islam continue to spread its reach, far and wide. Awaiting the Muslims would be a new age. They would be destined for enlightment, for new horizons and the clash of great powers the light of which the world have never seen.
