Egypt's Archaic Islamic Period

Egypt's Past Ancient Kings and People
Islam started in the Arabian Peninsula about the same time the Christians were being persecuted by the Romans for their beliefs. Islam spread quickly, and it was not long before the Arab Islamic State was able to free Egypt from the horrible reign of terror by Rome. Amr Bin Al Aas conquered the Romans in 640 AD and Egypt was bound to Islam as its greatest supporter.
There were several different periods to the Islamic rule of Egypt:
  • Abbasid Era
  • Fatimid Era
  • Ayyubid Era
  • Mameluke Era
  • Bahri Mameluke Era
  • Burgi Mameluke Era
  • Ottoman Turk Era
