The best of systems
“Islam prevailed because it was the best social and political order that the times could offer. It prevailed because everywhere it found politically apathetic peoples; robbed, oppressed, bullied, uneducated and unorganized, and it found selfish and unsound governments which were out of touch with any of its people at all. It was the broadest, freshest and cleanest political idea that had yet come into actual activity in the world, and it offered better terms than any other to the masses of mankind.”
