Irving, W. (n.d.). Mohamet and His Successors. Retrieved from http://cn.worldlibrary.net/

Excerpt: IT is the intention of the author in the following pages, to trace the progress of the Moslem dominion from the death of Mahomet, in A. D. 622, to the invasion of Spain, in A. D. 710. In this period, which did not occupy fourscore and ten years, and passed within the lifetime of many an aged Arab, the Moslems extended their empire and their faith over the wide regions of Asia and Africa, subverting the empire of the Khosrus; subjugating great territories in India; establishing a splendid seat of power in Syria; dictating to the conquered kingdom of the Pharaohs; overrunning the whole northern coast of Africa; scouring the Mediterranean with their ships; carrying their conquests in one direction to the very walls of Constantinople, and in another to the extreme limits of Mauritania; in a word, trampling down all the old dynasties which once held haughty and magnificent sway in the East.
