Common Language.
Trade routes.
Ignorance leads to fear, fear leads to hate, hate leads to violence. This is the equation.
What is There to Do There?
Political Aspects of Islam
Economic Aspects
In the Golden Age, Islam did NOT force people to convert to Islam. But, it DID have a tax for Non-Muslims. So in order to avoid the tax, most people converted to Islam.
Islam based its' laws off of the Qur'an and it was called Sharia. This way, the Qur'an regulated and justified everyday life. That reminds me, another intellectual achievement having to do with religion is that, if they conquered, they didn't kill because they were taught that everyone had knowledge to offer.
Islam spread through trade quickly due to its influential quality. People started to believe it. Islam was a large empire, especially in its Golden Age. Because of this, they had to have a common language, which, once established, was Arabic.

Let us go ahead and start with the buildings and decoration. These you see here were inspired by the Golden Age of Islam. This is where the Muslims started using intricate floral or vine designs on tons of things like textiles, buildings, pottery, and paper manuscripts. It's called arabesques. They loved their geometric patterns too, as you can see. They embedded their pottery with gold and silver and oh boy, was it beloved by many. Believe it or not, they were told by Muhammad (early religious leader) to not use a human figure to represent their faith. That's why they don't really put people in their art. As for their buildings, normally they are simple on the outside, like in the picture to your left. But, on the inside it screams Islamic culture top to bottom. Also, the structure design of the building offers complete privacy to those inside.
Math and science were BIG in the Golden Age of Islam. They came up with the idea of zero, which made algebra possible. Al-Khwarizmi wrote one of the first algebra text books. (You handle your anger on that your own way, not my problem). Then we have Alhazen, who is credited with being the first scientist. He conducted the first type of experiments, which would a little later, inspire the scientific method. He wrote a book on the eyes called the Book of Optics. Last we have business, trade brought foreigners, who wanted to stay, so more taverns and churches were built so they could gather and/or worship Islam.

What 's so Special?
Intellectual Part: I
Medicine was practically invented here during the Golden Age of Islam. Al-Zahrawi wrote a text on anatomy which served as the standard medical text in Europe for centuries. Avicenna wrote the Canon, which was a medical textbook, as well as encyclopedia on philosophy which sparked debate from inside and outside of Islamic society. Al-Razi was the most famous doctor out of them all. He wrote around 200 books on medicine, diseases, and cures since he was a skilled surgeon and a chemist. So, you could always go and visit some of the many hospitals there. But, then again, you could go to a theater and watch the live shows of Arabian Nights. Which includes the storyof our beloved young street-rat Aladdin, his buddy Aboo, Carpet, Genie, and his love Princess Jasmine. You could even go to a restaurant and hear some readings of Rami and Averroes, our famous poet and our religious philosopher. Or visit our House of Wisdom and witness the historical landmark where scholars from surrounding nations came to translate their works into Arabic.
Intellectual Part:II
Laws were based off the Qur'an. Taxes forced upon Non-Muslims.
