After presenting the background, Abdal Hakim Murad points out that Islam does not appear out of a vacuum.
He discusses the early story of Islam – when examining the inner history rather than the outward play of the rise and fall of dynasties – which can be characterized by three major themes:
- The polemic against the indigenous religion of the Arabs
- The argument against the earlier monotheisms
- Islam’s internal arguments
