This subject covers the history of Muslim societies and civilisations from the time of the death of Prophet Muhammad to the end of the Caliphate era. The periods of Rightly Guided Caliphs, the Umayyad Empire, the Abbasid Empire and the Ottoman Empire will be studied, with a focus on the significant historic events which took place during the Caliphate era. The intellectual, economic, social and cultural aspects of the Islamic civilisations will be explored, particularly the contribution to science during the golden era. The decline of the Muslim world will also be critically evaluated.
