First Class Exam: Study Guide for the Essay Part Here are five questions based on the class discussions and materials in the book by Lapidus.  Please prepare the answers carefully: These answers (please bring blue books to the class exam)  should be about two paragraphs long and should address all details asked in the questions. The  first paragraph should lay out the basic facts and the second paragraph should explain their  significance. The test will contain three of these questions and you will be asked to answer one. In addition, the First Test consists of one page of multiple choice questions which I will  distribute on the exam day in class. These questions (addressing themselves to analytical rather  than factual details) cover the same ground as my lectures and the text by Lapidus. (1) Present an outline of the great Perso­Byzantine war of 603­628. What was it about, which were its stages, and what was the outcome? (2) Discuss Muhammad’s early career (ca. 614­622) in Mecca, as the later Islamic Tradition  portrayed it. When and how did Muhammad’s preaching begin and why did its content  arouse the hostility of the Meccans? (3) Provide a summary of Muhammad’s activities in Medina (ca. 622­632), according to the  Islamic Tradition. Which events mark their beginning, how did Muhammad shape the  community of believers, and what was his final achievement? (4) Provide an outline of the sequence of Arab conquests, from Syria to Spain and northwest  India. How did the Arabs secure their conquests and which kind of administration did  they establish? (5) Who was Abu Muslim and how was he able to defeat the Umayyads? Discuss the  religious and military aspects of his revolution. Why was his revolution successful, even  though he did not live to see its fruits?
