The rise of Islam at early 7 century could be considered as a nationalist revolution and movement of the Arabian people, but not just a relious movement.Islam , of course , is a religion, but at the 7 century, it also represented the nationalist feeling of the Arabian people

before the rise of islam, the foreign powers, the Roman Empire, the Persian empire, and sometomes the Ethopian Empire, all extended their influence and political control at the Arabian peninsula, since they wanted to control the commercial routes and the strategic ports of the peninsula,

so they appointed some Arabian tribual leaders as their representatives, actually their political puppets, through these politial puppets, they could extend tehir politcal control , and these Arabian politcal puppets always suppressed their own fellow country men, under the help of the foreign powers, so the Arabian people would build up a strong sense of patriotism and nationalism, they would like to drive away the foreign powers, and under this circumstance, Prophet and his followers were also influenced by the nationalist feeling, and the founding of Islam would represnt such feeling, Prophet wanted to save his people , from the foreign power, and Islam could be the instrument, through Islam, the Ariabian people could be united in a single regime, then they were strong enough to resist the foreign powers and win back their freedom and independence, so the Islam movement at the 7 century could be considered as a nationalist and independence movement of the Arabian people, and Prophet and his supporters were also the Araabian patriots and nationalists, the ultimate goal of Islam movement was to drive away the foreign powers and win back the independence of the Arabian people

Islam however AFAIR, has - unlike another 'Semitic people' origin-based monotheistic religion - Judaism,
always been seeking to be inclusive of all adherents, regardless of 'racial' or ethnic origins..

& the fundamental tenets of Islam call for the whole world to be under the submission of the holy creed,
if needful by jihad of the faithful..
& then via 'voluntary' exercise of conscious will by the conquered,  of course..


Be Modest In Thyself..
