Islam is one of the world's major religions. Its continued success, from the early days upto the present, during the course of fourteen centuries, is due to a multitude of spiritual, religious, intellectual, moral and ethical factors. The course of it's development, and the factors contributing to its spread took place in the full light of history and can be fully substantiated by authentic documents. We know as much about the Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, the Qur'an, Islam and its spread, as we do about any person, book or phenomenon in history. A scholar and reader does not therefore need to resort to assumptions, legend and mythology.

The Spread of Islam : 'The Contributing Factors' This book helps the reader understand the processes involved in the early spread of Islam, a religion that numbers countless adherents, in different parts of the world and among various nations, peoples and races. It is a fairly comprehensive introduction to the history of Islam, dealing mainly with the major factors contributing to its spread.

This book has been translated into several languages, including Turkish, Persian, Arabic and Hausa. This is the fourth revised edition.

Abul-Fazl Ezzati was born in Iran in 1932. In addition to teaching Islamic Studies at universities in Tehran, London, and the United States, he has written several books on Islam, some of which have been translated into Arabic, Turkish, Hausa, Russian, Spanish, and Persian.
