While Western States and rulers in the Muslim world attempt to put spin on the call for Khilafah as being medieval, backward, out of date, and a defunct model for governance, the 90-minute documentary, AN ISLAMIC HISTORY OF EUROPE, presented by Rageh Omaar uncovers the hidden story of Islam’s Ideological advancements in the international arena. Rather than being an isolated state with no technology, culture, academic input or being ridden with social ills, or lack of Political culture amongst the masses, the Khilafah State (caliphate) was the complete antithesis to this.
This evocative film brings to life a time when emirs and caliphs dominated Spain and Sicily and Islamic scholarship swept into the major cities of Europe. Rageh’s journey reveals the debt owed to Islam for its vital contribution to Humanity, more specifically to Europe.
