Life in the Islamic World By: isabella valdes

A mosque is a Muslim house of worship

A bazaar is a marketplace

An astrolabe is a tool that helps sailors navigate by the positions of the stars

To confirm is to prove that something is true; to remove doubt

A minaret is the tower of a mosque from which Muslims are called to prayer

Muslim readers set out in their journies with spices, cloth, glass and carpets from their homeland to sell. They went in caravans.

An astrolabe was used to prove that the Earth is round

People in the Muslim world were divided into social groups on their power and wealth

The Quran was the first and most important work written in Arabic

Muslims developed forms of art based on Islam and the different cultures of the Muslim world.
