Islamic history dates back to Abraham… well, Adam, really, and there are some stories that are critical to understanding Islam that predate Muhammad. This includes most of the Old Testament, but I’m not going to rehash stories you already know. Abraham is a big deal Islam, as is the story of him sacrificing Isaac. It’s so big, actually, it’s a Muslim holiday. But again, you know that story. So what I did was pick out five stories of Pre-Muhammad lore to share with you.
