Essay
Question:
Discuss
the
emergence
of
Islam
in
its
historical
context.
How
might
this
be
different
to
the
traditional
narrative?
1. The
way
to
answer
this
question,
you
must
first
outline
the
history
of
the
origins
of
Islam
using
available
and
recommended
scholarship
on
the
subject.
a. Your
task
would
be
to
examine
these
histories
presented
by
the
different
scholars.
2. Second
part
of
the
question
asks
you
to
discuss
your
findings
in
relation
to
the
traditional
narrative.
a. The
traditional
narrative
is
typically
a
glorified
account
and
not
a
strict
historical
account.
The
reason
being
is
that
the
traditional
narrative
speaks
from
within
the
tradition,
as
it
depends
on
in-­‐
house
memory
(i.e.,
group
or
cultural
memory),
and
it
is
biased
in
its
representation
of
past
events
where
the
Islamic
faith
or
key
figures
and
events
are
concerned.
b. This
does
not
mean
that
traditional
narrative
is
wrong
or
false.
On
the
one
hand,
it
can
deliberately
overlook
and
or
leave
out
certain
details,
and
on
the
other
hand,
it
can
offer
significant
information
about
figures,
events
and
elements
of
faith
that
may
not
be
accessible
to
a
strict
historical
investigation.
• What
you
have
emerging
is
a
debate
to
which
students
are
required
to
respond
regarding
how
one
might
reconstruct
and
understand
the
past.
