Islamic History and Civilisation
Islamic civilisation is a living entity spanning over 1400 years and across the entire globe. Since its emergence in the Arabian peninsula in the 7th century, Islam has influenced various cultures, societies, and traditions throughout history, leaving the world with impressive manifestations of cultural heritage, begging to be studied, understood, and appreciated. From the lasting impact of Ibn Khaldun’s al-Muqaddimah to the jaw-dropping scenery of the Alhambra in Granada, and from the immense legacy of the Abbasids to the contemporary Muslim discourses on reform and modernity, the field of Islamic History and Civilisation is awash with exciting debates, ideas and discoveries, yet never over-studied.
