This is a message for my MW sections of HST 101. If you are in the T section, ignore this.
After looking again over the primary sources from Strayer Ch.11 (Doc.11.1, Doc.11.2, and Doc.11.3), please respond to the following question prompts in a comment below:
1) What attitudes toward Jews, Christians, and other non-Muslim peoples do these primary source selections suggest on the part of Islam?
2) What do you think is the relationship between the selections from the Koran (Doc.11.1), from the Hadith (Doc.11.2) and from Sharia Law (Doc.11.3)? How do these sources of authority work together to govern Islamic society?
3) After looking at these sources, what sort of problems do you think early Islamic society and empire had?
You do not have to rote-answer each question in turn if you so choose. Feel free to respond in general with a short paragraph or a response to a fellow classmate’s offering. Also, be sure you include your full name and your class section (e.g., MW 3:00), so that it makes it easier for me to give you credit for participating.
