China is among the earliest civilizations
ماشاء الله the first known civilization in the history of mankind, was Sumer (Mesopotamia)! Yes, it started right from ancient Iraq around 4000 BC. Then more cities rose in Egypt, India, China... Can you imagine — the earliest civilizations were Middle Eastern & Asian!

Then came Greece (1000 BC), Macedonia (300 BC). Then after the 1st century dawned, Rome & Persia became great empires. The western Rome meets the eastern Persia, mano a mano.

But after the 7th century, both were subdued as a new empire — the Muslim — spread from Arabia. It reached the farthest West & East, from Spain to China. In the West, it reached Europe through the 10th century Andalus — inspiring the Renaissance, enlightening the Dark Ages after the fall of Rome. In the East, it spread across Asia after the Mongols embraced Islam in the 13th century. It reached Turkey and the Ottoman rose.

The Golden Age of Islam spread worldwide. الحمد لله

Back in Europe, the Age of Discovery dawned in the 15th century after the Renaissance. Spain arrived in the Americas & Philippines. By the 19, 20th century, the Europeans rose to colonize nations worldwide. That's how nations became westernized, adopting western culture alongside or replacing their own. That's how Djibouti, a country in Africa, speaks French. [photo stamp]

Then countries after countries gained independence. So the world becomes what we are today. Some trying to re-embrace our own roots — hoping we don't look strange among the westernized. [photo anglos | migrants | grandma] (◠v◠)v

I hope it's correct, I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors.
Only Allah SWT Knows Best والله أعلم
