Impact of Islam on World History
Islam had a tremendous impact on world history as well as the present-day, mostly because of the religion's magnitude. The religion has billions of adherents composing about 1/6 of the world's population. It is also because of the Holy Wars or Crusades in which the Christians attempted to take the Holy Land back from the Muslims. This is regarded as one of the most violent times in history resulting in numerous wars based off religion, primarily through the Catholic Church and Islam. Throughout the course of our modern history, the largest impact Islam has left on the world is arguably the conflict that has arose, not from Islam alone, but how religions have interacted with it as well as others. Conflicts in which we still see today by nations across the globe caused by disagreement which have led to wars, government issues, and even acts of terror from all sides.
