Pre-Islamic Arabia: What Was It Like Before Muhammad?

Pre-Islamic Arabia was “a hot arid desert, sandwiched between two great rivaling empires,” asserts Al Muqaddimah in a series of videos. The two great empires nearby were the Byzantine (Greek) or Eastern Roman Empire and the Persian (Iranian) Empire.

Noting that there are few online videos on Islamic history — “even Crash Course has like three videos on Islamic Civilization” — “most Muslims even don’t know Islamic History,” Al Muqaddimah is attempting to correct the ignorance.
