"Deep, insightful, and inspiring course on a wrongly-neglected subject." - Shaykh Faraz Rabbani (Seekersguidance)


To gain an understanding of the history of the Islamic and Western civilizations, and how they interrelate, from the early Middle Ages up to the end of the 20th century. The course will focus on a broad sweep of the major historical personalities and events of the time period beginning with the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and mercy) in 622 CE right up to the end of the 20th century CE.

The passage of ages, empires and dynasties during this time will be studied in relation to the world situation as a whole, and with particular regard to three inter-related aspects: political-military, intellectual and economic developments.

If we do not know where we came from, we do not know who we are. It is hoped that this course will help connect us to our forefathers because, after all, it is their story that we are telling. It is impossible to understand where we are today without knowing how we got here. It is hoped that developing an understanding of the history of these two civilizations will empower students and equip them with the requisite knowledge and tools to understand the world we live in today.
