The First Kingdom: Rise and fall of the Umayyads

If history was not important God would not have captivated us with  the stories of old in the Qur’an. History is important because it nourishes the mind just as food nourishes the body; gaining knowledge about our past better equips us to deal with what the future holds. Learning about the Umayyad era especially helps us pinpoint problems we are experiencing in this century among Muslims and work towards solutions.
