Survey of Islamic history

Write a focused response critically evaluating the following hypothetical blog post:
“Although there were some minor fluctuations within Muslim societies of the Middle
East, Central Asia, and North Africa between the Mongol conquest of Baghdad in 1258
and Napoleon’s invasion of Egypt in 1798, it is clear that on the whole, Islamicate society
steadily stagnated and declined throughout this period. The end of the ‘Abbasid caliphate
sealed the fate of what had been strong Muslim political and religious unity, which then
fragmented into a hundred different kingdoms all battling with each other and their
neighbors for territory, all claiming different sources of religious and political legitimacy.
For the most part, all of the ‘developments’ for more than five hundred years—whether
cultural, religious, artistic, intellectual, legal, economic, military, or political, etc.—did
not fundamentally slow the essential decline of Islamic society.”
