A valuable study of the early conquest of Central Asia , known as Transoxia. Whilst the Ummayads where busy conquering the Maghrib and Andalusia, Persia, and the Sudan , they also brought Islam to the Turkic dominated Central Asia. This would have far reaching consequences in the development of the islamic empires. With the conversion to Islam of the Turkic People , Islam would find a new beacon. From the Turkic Slave empires in India and egypt, to the Defence of Islam against the Monghul Hordes, at Ain Jalot, to the founding of the Delhi and subsequent Mughal Dynasties in India. This conversion of Central Asia would also give rise to central asian dynasties such as the Seljuk Dynasty, the Timurid Dynasty and ultimately the Ottomans.
