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?
