  26. 26. Doing World History<br />Diffusion<br />The invention of faster trading vessels (dhows) assisted with movement of the Muslim culture, which helped the spread of it through south and southeast portions of Asia. <br />The Crusades brought many technological advances, as well as manufactured goods. Chess, building fortification, Greek learning, Oriental rugs and mathematical advances all came from the results of the Crusades. <br />Contrast<br />The ulama wanted to ban any influence that could not be tied with the Qur’an while al- Ghazali wanted to fuse both the Greek and the Qur’an traditions. <br />Hinduism in India was more lenient than Islam which was a more committing religion with strict ideals that affected its converts. <br />Common Phenomena<br />The Sufis shared many traits with the Buddhist and Hindu ascetics. They all practiced the denial of the body and they were considered nomadic mystics. <br />Syncretism<br />The bhaktic cults, which included the lower caste members, had a great impact on the lower classes that were most likely to convert to Islam. The higher involvement of the people in addition to the wide access to religious songs and poems led to the postponement to conversion to Islam. <br />
