From Mecca to Medina: The Revelation Transforms

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Introduction to the Qur’an

From Mecca to Medina: The Revelation Transforms

Taught by Professor Martyn Oliver | 24 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Learn how the Meccan verses are both radical and evangelical—an economic and cultural threat to Mecca, but also statements of a powerful ideology defining Allah as sole creator and ultimate judge. Later verses of Medina focus, as did Muhammad, on the development of an enduring and cohesive community of diverse peoples, eventually uniting much of the Arabian Peninsula. In these origins of the revelation is where the history of Islam is born.
