In the name of Allah, Ar-Rahman Ar-Raheem
In 2012, there was a documentary entitled “Islam: The Untold Story”, written and presented by historian Tom Holland. He made rather bizarre statements on the origins of Islam. Tom Holland argues that it is not Islam that gave birth to the Arab Empire (the Islamic Civilization like Umayyad and Abbasid caliphates), but the Arab empire that gave birth to Islam. Prophet Muhammad, according to Holland, never existed, but only a mythological product of the Arab Empire. Islam is an invented religion.
“What if it wasn’t Islam that gave birth to the Arab Empire? But the Arab Empire gave birth to Islam?”-Tom Holland in “Islam: The Untold Story”.
