Please provide specific examples from the text when possible to support your position.
Your discussion prompts are as follow:
Based on your readings and our discussions in class today, what factors led to the rapid expansion of Islam between the 7th and 15th centuries? What made Islam attractive to people in sub-Saharan Africa? In India? Central Asia? Southeast Asia?
