The Golden Age
We invented the windmill, astrolabe, oud, clock, magnifying glass, important surgeries, paper mills, and other medical achievments.
What did you guys invent?
The two groups, Sunnis and Shiites disagree about who should be the caliph. Even though the Sunnis outnumbered the Shiites, the Shiites still kept on disagreeing with the Sunnis.
We don't care that we're outnumbered! Ali should be the caliph! He is Muhammad's son-in-law!
The Muslims and the Franks battle, but the Muslims are driven back to France.
Convert the Islam! Let us pass to convert others!
We will never convert to Islam! Go back to France!
During the Golden Age, many important inventions and discoveries were made, and most of them still impact our life to this day.
Wow, that's cool! Go invent more stuff.
