Encyclopedia > Timeline of Islamic history

There is much more to Muslim history than military and political history; this particular chronology is almost entirely of military and political history. (See also: History of Islam)

RLST 7: Timeline of Islamic History (1593 words)
As a political and cultural center, Baghdad became the home of schools of Islamic law patronized by the Abbasid caliphs, and shari'a took hold as a standard of Islamic political and religious existence (although Islamic jurists could also serve as an important check on the power of the caliphs).
Eventually Christian kingdoms to the north preyed on weakened al-Andalus, until Islamic presence was reduced to the small kingdom of Grenada by the thirteenth century.
During this period of political upheaval and military devastation, central components of unifying Islamic identity were (perhaps paradoxically) strengthened: legal schools established coherent standards for fiqh (jurisprudence) and shari'a (common law), and philosophy and mysticism (falsafah and Sufism) flourished throughout the Islamic world.
