Islam spread across the Arabian Peninsula first, then North America and the Middle East. These areas were originally polytheistic and later were converted to majority monotheistic. As Islam increased, trade also did. Islam also spread to Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, Western Europe, and modern Turkey. 1/6 of the world's population are Muslims. Knowledge of calligraphy, art, philosophy, architecture, medical advances, math, and science extended as well.
