I have to kind of disagree here...Islam was more or less created by Catholics/Christians(by way of Jews maybe) by Romans to push the zoroastrians back into Persia. These nomads were conflicting with the interest of territory in the middle east that the Romans were trying to maintain. Islam was created in war to insight even more war. Allah of the Quran seems to be more Jesus Christ than anything and there is more about Jesus son of Mary in the Quran more than anything. So this Muhammed 600s seems to be spreading Christianity/Catholicism(kadijah) into the middle east mixing the already pagan rituals with it. No different than Catholicism being mixed with African Vodun in the U.S.A forming Voodoo.
