Overview

Shortly before the big depression, in 1928, Hassan El Banna toyed with the idea of resurrecting the Islamic Empire in the same spirit of the Holy Prophet, of spreading peace and justice among mankind. Only in 2011, such realization harvested its early produce by Mohamed Moris reigning Egypt, Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey, Khaled Mashaal in Palestine.

After fourteen centuries of consecutive occupations and defeats, the majority of Muslims and Arabs expressed genuine concern about the constant Quranic reminder that Prophet Muhammad, despite his illiteracy and impoverishment, has brought to Mankind the most impeccable and most eloquent legislature, a body of laws that aids humans in choosing the straight path of the faithful, not the losing path of delusional minds.

The great meanings of the Quranic verses were lost the greater evil of few wicked men capable of forming armed militia, subdue nations, oppress the poor, weak, and illiterate. Every time new technologies were invented, the balance of military power tipped to the side of the wealthy, large, and ingenious. On the Christian side, things were no much different. The various interpretations of the Bible created many Christian factions, warring against each other, engulfing the European Continent in centuries of religious wars.

Quran has long been disseminated across the old world long before the invention of machines or steam engines. On the back of horses and sail boats, Muslims traveled from Spain to Philippines spreading Islamic Shariah and Quranic teachings while Europe endured the stillness of a millennium of Dark Ages. The call for spreading Islam, Quran, and Sharia throughout the Earth was inspired by Prophet Muhammad alone. Thus, a simple sheep-herder, from the barren desert of Arabia, was capable in changing the history of mankind by mere prophecy. The thrust of Muhammad’s prophecy was to guide mankind to the straight path of God, a path of human equality and justice to all people alike.

In the fifteenth century, Europe had already learned and experienced about expansive missions of the Islamic Empire, which controlled major water crossings between Europe and South East Asia. Looking west and away from the Islamic center of power in the Middle East, the Europeans struck their greatest luck in discovering the New World. With its amble natural resources, England and France were able to build stronger armies and massive ships that latter enabled the submission of the Islamic nations to the new rising powers of Europe.

Hence, the Islamic nations which have been occupied by invaders from Asia, like the Mamluks and Ottomans, were then exposed the Christian invaders from Britain and France. The two old major powers established the earliest oceanic pathways of trade between the old and the new worlds throughout the Atlantic Ocean, Mediterranean, Red Sea, and Indian Ocean.
