History of Zamboanga - circa 1400s

 

1400s A.D. Mohammedanism takes hold

 

In the 1400s, the new settlers of Jambangan, Mindanao Island, and the Sulu Archipelago region experienced a spiritual transformation that is evident to this day. Mohammedanism was introduced to these people of Malayan decent, and eventually spread out to the Visayas and as far north as Manila, and preceded the Spanish arrival by only sixty years.

 

The Mohammedan conquest of the Philippine Islands was almost complete, and the country would have been a Muslim state today. With all due respect to the views of the Mohammedans of the Philippines, the religion of Islam was highly tolerant of other religions even at the zenith of its empire building. Jews and Christians were, to name a few, allowed to practice their beliefs in, of all places, the center of the Islamic world at this time - Baghdad. Their many contributions would also enrich the culture of Islam.  If one is inclined to understand a more detailed history of Islam, we recommend: Islam - Empire of Faith.
