    the people of the book were the jews and christians. where did the Umayyads move the empire to? was there religious tolerance in the Umayyad Empire? yes, and local as well (allowed to keep legal systems) what was different between the Umayyad empire and the Persian and Byzantine Empires? scholars, legal and religious experts.   The Abbasid were essentially a rebel force that overthrew the Umayyad rulers based in the Syrian capital, Damascus. The Umayyads saw Islam as strictly a religion for Arabs, and treated converts to Islam and any non-Arab Muslims as second-class citizens.

Soon after the Prophet's death, it was suggested that the revelations be collected in a book. This book is the Qur'an, the holy book of the Muslims. Only Arabic can be used in worship. Wherever Muslims carried the Qur'an, Arabic became the language of worshipers and scholars.

    The Abbasid Dynasty overthrew the preceding Umayyad Dynasty, which was based in Damascus, Syria. The Umayyads had become increasingly unpopular, especially in the eastern territories of the caliphate. The Umayyads favored Syrian Arabs over other Muslims and treated mawali, newly converted Muslims, as second-class citizens.   At the same time the Umayyads had dedicated their prestige to conquering the Byzantine empire, and started running into real opposition from the Orthodox provinces. Thus there was a revolution in , and a new dynasty, the Abbasids, took the caliphate, marking the transition to a more settled empire and a, disputed, golden age.
