Events in Islamic history have been divided into Faith, Politics, Culture and Innovation. Use the buttons on the Event Magnifier to view as many of these categories as you like. The Century Slider, located at the bottom of the timeline, can be moved to view different periods in time. Move the Event Magnifier to focus on specific historical events. Dates under the transparent window become highlighted and information appears here.
