    ISLAMIC CONCEPT OF HISTORY
    islamic perception of history is divinty+man+time+space= history
    diferences between the western and islamic perception of history are as follows
    WESTERN PERSPECTIVE
    human beings evolved through gradual development as stipulated by darwin
    human beings started on a primitive and uncivilised way
    man is the object of history and are the ultimate
    divinity plays no role in history
    ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE
    human being starts with adam as the first mman on earth
    human being started withproper guidance and civilised
    although man is the object of history but not not the ultimate
    divinity defines and shapes historical event
    some people mis-concept history for myth, the characteristics of  them are:
    HISTORY
    factual representation of event in the past
    based on evidence
    historical account could be validated
    history is true
    history teaches moral lessons  
    MYTH
    fictions are not factual
    based on imagination or supersitious beliefs
    it can't be validated
    it is fanciful, although may be derived from tru events in history
    also teaches moral lessons

    CHURCH INTERPRETARION OF HISTORY
    it prevailed during the "dark ages" in europe when the church maintains an absolute control and hegemony. it claimed that human beings collapsed because of adam's sin until christ came and presented himself in sacrifice
