The Western and Christian societies have always viewed the conquest of Muslims in the Iberian Peninsula as the Dark Age in the history of Europe. This is not the case however. The Muslim empire made many significant contributions that can by no means be ignored. Most of the Christian communities have always emphasized that there is only one way to heaven, and that the only way this can be achieved is by believing in Jesus, prophesying him as the son of God and joining the Christian faith. They therefore view any other faith as a threat to this view of truth. That is why they emphasize that the conquest of Spain by the Muslims led to the introduction of a ‘Dark religion,’ a religion that did not embrace Jesus as the son of God. They also view the introduction of the Islamic laws during the period in Spain as the embracing of ungodly laws. The western world on the other hand has always perceived the Islamic faith as being totalitarian. The fact that the faith embraces some laws tat are controversial like capital punishment is seen as a form human rights abuse. The fact that most of the Muslim women have no say in important matters is seen as a form of slavery. No wonder they perceive the Muslim conquest of Spain as a park period. The Western world has never been to terms with laws that seem to be oppressive,(whatever their definition of oppressive is.
