711 - invasion of Spain

-something about the arrival of Osman in Anatolia in the 12th (?) century and the Ottoman expansion

1993 - WTC bombing

2001 - 9/11 attacks

Also, there must be some dates involved with the Eastward expansion of Islam (which was just as successful as it's Western expansion, possibly more so since there was no "reconquista" of which I am aware.)

sounds good, will check that out. I thought about including the Moghul Empire but there have really been so many caliphates that it would be cumbersome to include them all.

I was wondering if I could possibly use your timeline, and add a few things, to a project that I am doing on Islam. I would cite you as a source, but I want to verify with you that that is ok.

Assalamu Alaikum, (peace be with you) I am letting you know that 9/11 is not part of the islamic timeline, it is not from islam and acts like that never will be. 9/11 is an act of terorrism, something every people, state, and country may have. It saddens me that most of the time when someone says terrorist people automatically think islam and muslims. please research about the religion if you have any doubt of anything i am saying.
