How was Islam directly tied to the beginnings of monotheism? Who was Ishmael, and how was he described in the Bible and the Koran?
Mohammed was arguing over more than the belief in one God. Why were the Arab leaders threatened by his ideas? What were his arguments regarding proper and ethical conduct?
When the Arabs conquered much of the Middle East and north Africa, how did they treat non-Muslims? To what extent was there hostility between the different faiths, and when was the Islamic expansion welcome?
To some extent the Umayyad dynasty managed the new Islamic state in a way con-trary to Mohammed’s original intentions. What was so different, and how did the Abbasid family react to that disparity?
After the Umayyad dynasty was overthrown one of the princes escaped to al-Andalus. Describe where al-Andalus was, and how its capitol, Cordoba, was more advanced than the rest of western Europe.
The kingdoms in west Africa were strongly influenced by Islam, but the indigenous people often maintained their traditional religions. How were the positions of Mus-lims different from those of non-Muslims? How was their general behavior different from non-Muslims?
My goodness! This looks like a chapter review.
What have you learned in this chapter?
You'll be better able to pass the test if you answer these review questions yourself.
That is very true. Only if I hadn't lost my book. I know bits and pieces of each question but I am not sure if I am 100% right, hence why I posted this, I can't even find these answers on the internet.
For Internet searching:
At this webpage, you can go immediately to the search sites (first three columns across the top) -- or even better you can scroll down until you see the section called HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET. Those are the links to start with. You'll not only learn how to come up with good search terms, but also how to evaluate the webpages you get as results. Some will be good and others will be garbage. You need to know how to tell the difference.
My favorite way to search is to go to Google's advanced search page http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en and put my search words or phrases into the first or second search box (either "all the words" or "exact phrase").
Another is to start out at http://scholar.google.com. However, there many other strategies for searching you can use, and the HOW TO SEARCH THE INTERNET section in the first link above will help you best.
