What if - green britannia


*If the muslims overtook france and reached britain, would we be reading english in arabic letters? *wink* ;)

Something to think about.

Fact:in the 8th century, muslim armies blitzed through spain and france until they reached Tours, 200+ kilometres from paris. At the battle of tours (732), muslims were winning when the tables turned. Some muslims within the army were more concerned with guarding the spoils of war, creating an opportunity for the Franks to counterattack. If they had won, my alma mater would probably be called 'al madrasah al- ittisadiyah london' instead of the london school of economics

Salam!
Prior to that, the Muslim army won four battles with the same army general (a tabien).
That incident was later called the 'second Uhud', or 'Uhud happened again', something like that.
Unlike Uhud, though, the Muslims did not rise up for jihad again after that incident.
