Salvete my little scribes!
Today in class I returned to you your already-graded Unit 3 Thematic Essays, covered in my feedback, along with a Rewriting Guide. I also returned to you your not-yet-graded Unit 4 DBQ Essays, along with a Peer Editing Guide, and after clarifying some misunderstandings about citation, I gave you time in class to peer edit each others essays. A busy day indeed!
Your homework for this weekend is as follows. First, you should SELF EDIT your DBQ Essay, even though it has already been peer edited, just make sure your peer didn’t miss anything important. Then, you must rewrite AT LEAST ONE of the two essays. The choice is yours.
Keep in mind that EVERYONE must resubmit the DBQ Essay because it has not yet been graded, and ALMOST EVERYONE should resubmit the Thematic Essay, but I will not require it of those who got in the 90s and don’t feel it is necessary. Since most of you will be rewriting both, I will only require ONE of the two to be turned in THIS MONDAY, but the other will be required no later than TUESDAY 1/20. I recommend trying to get both done this weekend if you can. Below you can find all the necessary resources. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!

Why Did Islam Spread So Quickly?
Islam originated in present day Saudi Arabia where the prophet, Muhammad, had been born. Islam would later be able to spread quickly through trade, the appealing nature of the Islamic faith, and military campaigns.
In the “Arabian Peninsula Trade Routes” (Doc. A) it shows how Mecca was very busy with all kinds of trade. Since Mecca is where Islam would start in the upcoming years, traders would come and go taking the teachings of Muhammad with them. Mecca was both the center of trade and the center of Islam which leads to the quick spread of faith through the many traders and merchants that…show more content…
While these people looked for peace, Islam welcomed them with open arms telling of equality and harmony. This appealed to the people and thus led to more Islam believers by showing how peace and harmony was present in the ways of Islam.
“The Ordinances of Government” (Doc. E) too helped with spreading the appealing nature of Islam by telling Muslims “the rules” of Islamic faith to prevent any accidental wrongful actions. This appealed to the people because they knew “the rules” so they could be true to the nature of their faith and they wouldn’t accidentally stray from the teachings of Muhammad. Abu al-Hasan Al-Mawardi, the author, used an academic tone to show he believed in telling Muslims “the rules” about Islam so they would become better followers and make them happier so that they could help spread Islam quickly so that others could hear the teachings of Muhammad as well. It would have helped shed some light on the subject if there was a testimony available from the point of view of a Muslim in which he retells what he looks for in Islam. This would help by seeing if these documents were getting their point across and hitting their target with the Muslims.
Lastly, Islam spread quickly through military campaigns which is depicted in “The Spread of Islam (map)” (Doc. C) This map shows how the people that were conquered by the Muslims chose to convert to Islam
