Islamic Civilisations

The History of the Islamic Faith's early day's and the life of the Holy Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH) is an incredible one. From small, but dedicated, origins, the faith spread rapidly to a point where the empire that grew around Islam rivalled the size of even the great Roman Empire. This unit examines some elements of the Rise of Islam and offers a variety of tasks designed to improve student's literacy tasks.
