Hamman’s Study Diary

The Mongols

Filed under: CIV 211, Spring 2007 — Hamman @ 12:34 pm

We started the lecture by learning about the futawwas and how they related to Nasir, the khalifah who wanted to be sultan.

The invasion of the Mongols marks the end of the Khalifah era, and the start of the Mongol rule over the Islamic territories around the late 1200s. We made some comparisons between the Mongol armies and rule with the Islamic armies when they had come in.

We also looked into how the Mongols converted to Islam and how they integrated their own laws of the Yasa into the Shariah.
