  1. I say that religion differences were a major factor in the decline. The Ottoman had people who were of Christian, Hindu, or followers of Sunni Islam, while others were Shia Islam. This led to natural conflicts between the religions dividing the empire.

      • I feel like the attacks from the Mongols made the decline happen. Due to them attacking it would cause the Ottoman to only be focused on that and not the necessities in life like, water, food, self care, happiness, and so much more. Plus attacking any place would cause damage to there place as well.

      • I believe that the cause of the decline of the Muslim empires was lack of westernization. The Muslim empires were resistant in borrowing that much from the west and imposed their mediocre traits on the economy. Furthermore, the military of the Muslim empires were quite weaker than the westerners in that the west had much more advance in technology that the Muslim economy and empires were resistant to borrow. This is what led to the demise of the Muslim empires.

        • I like how you thought outside of the box and I agree with you. I believe the lack of westernization also contributed to the decline of the Islamic empires because they needed to adopt some techniques that the western European world had discovered.

        • I agree with you that lack of westernization was a cause of their downfall because even though westernization was how they came into power, it was also a part in their downfall because they needed some of their techniques

        • I agree the Muslim military was very weak compared to the westerners, this was a great cause to the decline

      • The three Muslim empires declined due to the lack of westernization and innovation within their empires. They were resistant to borrow beneficial ways and aspects that the Westerners used, they had access to obtain Western aspects but did not take the opportunity. The military grew weaker overtime as well, especially in the Safavid empire. Overtime, the Muslim empires just could not compete with the technological innovations of the Western Europeans.

    • Although I do agree with you about religion being a factor to the Islamic empires decline, I personally feel like the main reason that the Islamic empires fell was due to unwise decisions made by the emperors of the empires, which eventually lead the empires to become so economically weak that they couldn’t fend off any invasions.

      • I do agree the emperors are partly at fault but the people’s lack of support also didn’t help strengthen these empires, because without the people what’s and emperor?

      • I agree that the emperors’ decisions caused the downfall, but more specifically I believe their inability to choose who would succeed them after their death was the main reason.

      • I agree with you on emperors making unwise decisions. Without these decisions, their empires would still be thriving

    • I agree that religion played a big role in the Islamic empires decline. Your provided good information about the Islamic empires and overall I agree.

    • I can partially agree to this because religion was a huge thing in this time period and had to do alot with things. Religion can cause chaos and other conflicts but I think this can be a part of internal conflict because they were having problems with spread of other religions

    • I kind of agree because religion could be part of internal conflict and internal conflict led to the decline so it can go both ways.

    • I would also agree of religion differences being the major factor due to the issues between the three religions with the lack of trust as well

    • I agree with this because the Ottomans did not tolerate or accept other religions while the Mughals were inviting to other religions. Also, as more religions began to spread, it created conflicts between people and empires.

    • I agree with you, because of all the internal fighting caused by religion lead to the decline of the islamic empires.

    • i agree that religion caused major decline. Christian, Hindu, and Islamic conflict and problems with finding out who would succeed previous rulers led to the fall.

  2. These Islamic Empires declined due to a lack of innovation. First, the Ottomans fell because they could not keep up with the scientific and technological innovations of western Europe. Secondly, the Safavids declined because their once-great military became stagnant and no longer progressed. Lastly, the Mughals declined because of Aurangzeb’s prejudice towards Hindu. He reversed the progress that his predecessors had made with the Hindus. All three of the Islamic Empires fell because of their inability to progress.

    • I agree with the fact that they were behind when it came to technology, and this did lead to many defeats, but the internal conflicts in the empires also led to destruction from the inside, damaging the empires more then any battle would, be due their people had become separated, making the empires separated.

    • I agree with you on how the Islamic Empires were declining because of them having worse technology, but I think that the internal fighting because of religious differences was the main factor that led to the decline of the Islamic Empires.

    • I also believe that the lack of innovation was a leading factor in the decline of the Islamic Empires due to the falter in advancements of the empires, however I also believe that the number one factor that led to the decline was the internal warfare each empire faced regarding the refusal of accepting certain religions. This is because the internal conflicts harmed the empires from the inside which conclusively caused the decline by destroying the root of each empire.

    • I agree that the ottomans fell because of their lack of connection with the west because if they had kept in tune with the west than what happened may not have

    • I agree. The Muslim empires didn’t have much innovation particularly due to their refusal to borrow from the west. The west thrived off their innovations while the Muslim empires refused western culture.

  3. Islamic empires fell due to Mongol invasions. The Mongols had a strong military and was able to take over and over power Islamic empires. The decline of the Abbasid dynasty also led to the fall of Islamic empires. Islamic empires traded with the Abbasid dynasties and without that trade Islamic territory will fall. That is the major factor that lead to the fall of Islamic empires.

      • I do agree that the many attacks from the mongols and since they were so strong sealed the empires from the attacks.

        • I think that religious issues were the main cause for the decline in the Islamic empires, especially in the Mughal empire with Islam and Hinduism and also the differences in the Shi’a and the Sunni

    • I disagree with your statement, I believe the mongols weren’t a large reason behind these empires’ collapse. Rather they were internal conflicts. External conflicts that impacted the decline of the empire could be seen in the Western advancements and the Sunni and Shi’a fights between the Safavids and Ottomans.

    • I agree with you as the Islamic empires fell due to Mongol invasions. However, there were other invasions and internal conflicts that were more of a factor in the decline of the Islamic empires.

  4. The number one important factor that led to the decline of the Islamic Empires is the internal warfare they had. These internal warfare includes religion as there are many religion differences. There are Ottomans who are Christian, Hindu, and Shia Islam. Battles like the Chaldiran also led to the decline of Islamic Empires.

    • I agree with you on the fact that internal conflict was very important, but I would also say how the Ottomans fell behind in technology compared to the west was also an important factor, and also the Chaldiran did represent the technological differences with firepower between the Islamic states themselves, it would not be represented by internal conflict, but is overall an important feature in the decline of these Islamic Empires.

    • I agree that internal warfare caused the decline because the internal conflicts regarding the acceptance of different religions destroyed the empires from the inside which ultimately lead to the fall.

    • I agree that the internal conflict was a strong factor of the Islamic decline. The Ottomans and Safavids battled over Sunni versus Shia Islam, and the Mughals had to battle with their own people on Islam versus Hinduism.

    • I agree with the Islamic empires dying through the internal warfare they had between themselves. The religious divide after the death of emperors in an attempt to change religion I feel was also a main reason however.

    • I agree with your statement that the internal conflict surrounding different religions was a key part to these Islamic gunpowder empires’ collapse.

  5. The main factor for the fall of the Islamic Empires was the internal fighting and warfare, destroying the societies and governments of the Islamic Empire from the inside. This is shown by the fighting between the successors of the rulers, because they some of them were greedy and wanted more land. Also the internal conflict between the different religions in the Islamic Empires, causing disorder and destruction.

    • I agree with your answer that religion was a big part of the decline of the Islamic empires and was very well thought out.

    • I agree with your idea on the greed of successors wanting more land because it shows where their priorities are desiring expansion rather than the well-being of their empire

    • I agree with your opinion. I think that it was more of an internal problem than problems with western societies and other Islamic empires. They had a very capable and skilled army and large cannons as well as muskets.

    • I completely agree with you on how the main factor of the fall of the Islamic empires was the internal fighting these empires had that caused them to destruct from within. I think that the religious differences had the most to do with the internal fighting.

    • I agree with you Bryce because the internal conflicts between the religions in countries drained resources and split the people into factions where outside countries had the signal to come and decimate their divided forces.

  6. The main factor that led to the decline of the three islamic empires was the growing European power. They couldn’t keep up with European culture and technology. Also the Europeans had much more resources and availability to do things.

  7. The main factor that led to the decline of the three islamic empires was the growing European power. They couldn’t keep up with European culture and technology. Also the Europeans had much more resources and availability to do things. This is why the Islamic empires fell.

  8. The answer to this is almost the exact same things that happens to the other major empires before the gunpowder empires, they all fell due to the amount of peasant uprisings. Peasant uprising affected these Muslim empires by, for example, the Ottomans being so big as an empire, they just can’t keep up with every place they are in, so this eventually led to peasant uprising which destroyed the empire(s) from the inside out.

  9. The 3 Islamic empires declined due to their lack of innovation and adaptation of new western technology and scientific advancements. Their underestimation of the western states caused them to decline due to their ‘old’ technology compared to the west.

  10. The major factor in the destruction of the Islamic empires were the internal conflicts that happened because of the many different religions that lived together since the Ottoman empire decided to be tolerant with them.

  11. The two main factors that caused the decline of the Islamic Empires were European domination and internal conflicts. In this time period, Europe was both financially and socially stable, wars were kept to a minimum and Europe overall dominated greatly. Technology in Europe was also innovated which bested the Islamic Empires and their powers. Next was internal conflicts, the Ottoman Empire at one point grew so large that the central government couldn’t control all of the societies. Eventually, mini-governments were created and they taxed one another greatly. This led to warfare within the Empire and it led to their downfall.

    • I agree with your answer because of how the empires declined due to the Europeans and your answer was very in detail and depth about the topic.

    • I agree with how the empires declined due to internal conflicts. However, what led to the European dominance was more of technological disadvantage. The technological disadvantage was more of a lead factor of the decline.

  12. The main factor that caused the decline of Islamic Empires was that the Europeans kept growing and expanding there innovations, and technology which the they could not keep up with the new innovations that Europeans were doing. To add on, imperial power weakened and the power of regional aristocracy grew to abandon land. The failure of the empires to take the European as a challenger meant a failure to adopt European military technology and advances. Which the Islamic empire suffered from the growing European.

  13. The most important factor that led to the decline of the gunpowder empires was the negligence for administrative duties expressed by arrogant rulers. This is clearly illustrated by the rash behavior of Aurangzeb in the Mughal Empire, who plunged the state into incessant warfare and strained its resources. To sum up his effect, all of Akbar’s progressive reforms were reversed and dissent he caused fueled rebellious factions such as the Marattas and the Sikhs, who bombarded Muslim kingdoms from the Himalayas. Additionally, the grandson of Abbas I was an incompetent ruler whose leadership skills suffered from the practice of confining prospective successors of the Safavid shah to the palace. His failure to address critical administrative issues launched the empire into a state of decay that it failed to recover from despite the substantial efforts of Abbas II to repel Ottoman and Mughal adversaries on its borders.

    • I agree with your statement that the grandson of Abbas 1 was an incompetent ruler. His grandson overextended himself and tried to westernize the empire to fast but the people were not ready for it. As a result the empire started to deteriorate.

  14. The number one factor leading to the decline of the Gunpowder empires was the internal struggles they had, such as lack of military strength towards the end of their reign. For example, at the ends of the Mughals reign, the Himalayan Mountains became very poorly guarded, leaving room for the Islamic invaders to pass right through and plunder, especially because they could no longer fight for themselves.

    • I agree with what you’ve said about the lack of military strength. The example of the Mughal empire truly supports the factor.

    • I agree that Gunpowder empires had many internal struggles. Like how you said they did not have a strong military towards the end of their reign.

    • I agree that internal conflict was one of, if not, the largest factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires. I also liked how you included geographic reasoning.

    • I agree with you on how the main declining factor was lack of military. I like the way you explained this you had strong examples.

  15. The number one factor that led to the decline of this time period’s Islamic empires was a heavy belief in the power of their own empire and overestimating the capabilities of their independence (runners up being internal complications and gaining too many lands). These Islamic gunpowder empires were not accepting European technological and economical advancements, resulting in an old and stagnant society. These societies, in the long run, were unable to compete against the rising European and adapting empires surrounding them. Ottomans not having the sea strength to combat the Spanish/Venetians and the Mughal’s internal conflict led open passages for the new European powers to dominate, this is also seen in Afghani tribes’ invasion of the Safavid empire.

  16. I believe that the number one factor that led to the decline of Islamic empires at this time was the problem of succession. After a leader would die, there would be many internal conflicts and some would even have to kill their own brothers to get to the throne. In order to solve this problem, future leaders would be held in the palace with almost no outside contact. When it was finally time for them to rule, many did not have the experience and were not ready to take on the challenge of leading an empire.

    • I agree completely with the argument that incompetent leaders were an issue. This is evident with Aurangzeb’s behavior in Mughal India, which strained the empire’s resources.

    • I agree with this because it’s true that inexperienced leaders lead to downfall in any government.

    • I agree with this because all throughout history, corruption and downfall started with the rough changing of leaders and their rivaling beliefs compared to the ones of the people/nation.

  17. The number one factor of that led to the decline of the Islamic empires of the period would be the internal struggle of power. Especially in the Safavid empire, they had an easily manipulated ruler due to inexperience. Within the empire there was corruption and revolts and with inability to deal with it. The rule declines, and so does the empire.

  18. One main thing that led to the fall of the Islamic empires was the growing European powers. The empires were unable to keep up with the Europeans culture and new technologies. The Europeans also had more recourses allowing them to expand and conquer more places. While the Islamic empires began to decline and eventually falling out of existence.

    • I agree, Islamic empires lacked greatly in the new technology that allowed them to move forward and peruse their growth in economy and as well as globally. They lacked resources and innovation, leading the their decline.

    • I completely agree with your statement because the Europeans become so powerful with the Scientific Revolution that other countries fell behind and the only way to make up for that deficit was to trade for their guns/technology.

    • I agree with you, after the Europeans started to develop new technology that surpassed the Islamic empires, they couldn’t keep up anymore and would decline.

    • I agree. European starts rise and developed a new technologies and that affected the decline of Islamic Empires.

  19. There were many factors that led to the fall of the Islamic Empires during this time period, but the main factor would have to be the internal fighting. The internal fighting was causing the Empire to be destroyed from within, and was mainly due to the religious differences.

    • I agree that internal fighting destroyed the Islamic empires because the Mughal empire’s downfall. It formed the Marrata and Sikh rebel factions.

    • I agree. Internal conflict/fighting was a major downfall of Islamic empires and was mainly caused by difference in religion

  20. The empires eventually grew to an extent where they were no longer able to survive with fair and spread support. Conquered cities they held would decrease, corruption and Heavy taxation would then be present all over. Navies would fall and security was scarce. Blocking European trading vessels would then be much more difficult. With invasions and war, keeping these empires healthy would be arduous.

  21. The main cause for decline of the Islamic empires during this time period was mainly due to the fact that the successors were completely useless and incapable of doing their jobs.

    • I agree with you, especially when it came to the Mughal Empire, with Shan Jahan basically spending all of the empire’s budget just so he could build one building.

    • I agree, in the Mughal Empire the Taj Mahal completely depleted their resources, and after that the tolerance on religions lead the empire to devastation.

    • I agree. The successors were not as great as the original rulers (in most cases) and lacked the experience and capability to do the job put before them

  22. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empire was Invasion. The Ottoman was a very powerful empire that they started to conquer and grow so much that the central government would decrease. This is what caused heavy taxation and led to corruption in the empire.

  23. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was the continuous growing of the empire. In the Ottoman empire, the growing caused problems at the imperial administration and possible successors to the throne were kept like hostages, instead of high military positions being prepared. In Safavid, the empire had rebellions from the inside, and nomadic invaders and Ottoman and Mughal armies reducing the Safavid territory, as the empire was large. The Mughal empire had internal rebellions and an increase of the empire’s adversaries had strained the allegiance of its vassals and allies, overextending the military forces. The large size was the number one factor in why the Islamic empires had went into a decline.

  24. The main cause that lead to the Islamic empires to decline were terrible economic choices and invasions from other countries. For example, the Mughal empire spent an outrageous amount of money to build the Taj Mahal. This lead to budget cuts in the military, and others things like this. With lower budgets, the Mughal empire was easily able to become invaded. Another example would be the Ottoman empire, and the siege of Vienna. This siege obviously drained the Ottomans of important resources, along with costing a decent amount of money to siege Vienna. So when the Ottomans were unable to siege Vienna, they basically lost all the resources, troops, and money that they spent on the siege, which make it much easier for other countries to cause the Ottoman empire to decline.

    • I agree with this because economie was a huge part of the decline of the empires and it determined almost everything. Also going into wars was dumb of the empires because there struggling as a whole already.

  25. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires of this time period was internal conflicts faced by each empire. The empires experienced internal warfare regarding the refusal of accepting differing religions. This was the number one leading factor of the decline because it destroyed the empire from the inside which definitively led to the fall by damaging the roots of the empire by causing chaos and destruction.

    • I agree with your statement on the fact that the number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was internal conflicts. However, wouldn’t it be fair to say that external conflicts also played a role in the empires decline? For example the issues dealing with Humayun and Chaldiran.

      • I agree that internal conflicts were the number one cause of decline. They would be fighting internally and externally, over all creating more conflicts on both half so, destroying the empire in an “imploding” kind of way

  26. The largest factors that were a result of the decline of the Islamic empires was the conflicts from other countries and poor economic decisions. The Islamic empire had also faced internal conflicts from angry citizens because they were not accepting of different religions. These many conflicts led to it’s downfall as it made the empire weaker.

  27. The three islamic empires declined due to technological advances in the West. The Ottoman Empire started to decline due to artillery advancements in Europe. The Ottomans continued to lose power in their military due to losing battles to western enemies.

    • I agree that these three empirical fell due the the advancements in wester Europe. Europe was able to gain power quickly and other empires suffered because of that.

  28. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was internal/external conflicts each empire had. This can be in the form of manipulation of the ruler in charge, or invasions that were led to take over the empire due to an inexperienced and young ruler in charge like the attacks towards the Mughal empire. they can also be in the form of conflicts between religion. For example, in the Ottoman empire Islam and Christianity had ongoing conflicts between their two religions. In the Safavid empire the two religions having major conflicts were the Shi’a and the Sunni. Finally, the Mughal had religious conflicts between the Muslim’s and Hindu’s in said empire. The conflicts between the religions, would divide the empire which in turn weakened it overall. The numerous internal/external conflicts are the number one factor that lead to the Islamic empires decline.

  29. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was the lack of technology and scientific advancements. This would include these empires military’s, as they would heavily rely on their current weapons which would use gunpowder. By using these weapons they were able to establish power however, they never truly changed these weapons and improved them. In other words, this would allow them to become obsolete and not as useful compared to other empires advancements.

  30. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires is internal conflict because they are having wars in this time period and who ever has the least gunpowder loses. These wars are lead up to who ever has the best economie and trade

  31. I would say that religion differences were a major factor in the decline. The Ottoman had people who were of Christian, Hindu, or followers of Sunni Islam, while others were Shi’a Islam.These Islamic Empires declined due to a lack of innovation. First, the Ottomans fell because they could not keep up.

  32. I believe that the problems with succession and heirs to the throne lead to the decline of the Islamic empires. The Janissaries from the previous ruler were known to decline the rule of the new ruler and they would not comply with their orders because of a lack of trust and respect. Also, there was no rule or law that appointed a certain son or daughter to the throne, the past ruler appointed a child of his; in return of this the children were known to kill each other ad compete for the throne and power of their Islamic empire. Also, the new ruler/successor could disagree with their predecessors’ and change the stability of the empire based on their belief, not what is best as an empire. These are all reasons why the Islamic empire fell because of problems/trouble with successors and heirs to the throne.

  33. The Islamic empires declined from the infusion is so many different cultures and ideas being forced into others in some cases. One idea if this is religion a since not all the empires had the same religion, that when some of the empires began expansion they began to decline. Since some people were not happy with the changes. Also there were problems with the political aspect of heirs taking over the empire, and not having respect from the people and the people disobeying what the new ruler was saying since he wasn’t there the past emperor they gained respect for.

  34. I believe the main cause of the Islamic empires to fall was of their tendency of civil wars/fighting in general after the death of a sultan. This was seen a lot with the Mughal empire and the death of Akbar, where his sons fought for the throne.

  35. economic destitution, Invasion, and the growing of European power played a role in the decline of the three Muslim Empires.
    The Ottoman Empire would grew so large that the central government would put a hold on villages and the cities it had conquered, the local government as a result take control, and it leads to heavy taxation. The Ottoman sultans kill their own heirs in order to stay on throne as long as possible, and increase in drugs and luxuries that increase the quality of the empire.

  36. The number 1 factor that led to the decline of Islam was Internal conflicts. Empires were not only conviction wth other empires, but within their own empire causing it destroyed empires from the inside out.

  37. The number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires during this period was the lack of people for the line of succession causing war and fights for the throne. Also, as they all wanted to change the religion it wasn’t always possible as there were diverse cultures.

  38. I believe the main factor was that the external conflict between the three civilizations. There was a lack of trust with most civilizations even though they had trade systems between the ottoman and safavids and their previous rulers that we’re having this conflict were the reasons that most empires fell and lead to the decline of the Islamic empire

  39. The main factor that led to the downfall of the Islamic empires was the internal warfare caused by religion.it caused the empires to be destroyed from within

  40. The main factor that caused the decline of Islamic Empires was their internal conflicts. They had religious issues and expanded too much so the central government could’t hold well, especially The Ottoman empire.

    • While I agree that they all fell due to internal issues, I don’t see why you said especially the Ottomans when religious issues and over expansion seemed to be more of Mughals problem.

    • I agree with you on the fact that although there were outside conflicts their internal conflicts ultimately led to their decline.

  41. I believe that all 3 of the Islamic empires declined due to incompetent rulers. In the Ottoman Empire the leaders couldn’t get rid of the power that the Janissaries held, this led to them falling behind other European countries due to extreme conservatism that the Jannisaris pushed for. The Safavid empire had a weak spoiled ruler that couldn’t hold the kingdom. And the Mughal empire had an overly ambitious emperor that sought to not allow Hinduism and to conquer more in a weakened state.

  42. The number one factor that led to the decline of Islamic empires at this time was the problem of succession. After the death of a leader there would be many internal conflicts and some would even have to kill their own brothers to get to the throne. When they got the throne, lots of the rulers did not have the experience and were not ready to take on the challenge of leading an empire.

  43. The three islamic empires declined due to technological advances in the West, and the Ottomons Empire started to decline due to military advancements in Europe. The Ottomans continued to lose power after taking many losses in war.

  44. The main thing that caused the decline of the three Islamic states had conflicts with religions. With the Ottoman Empire it was Christianity vs islam, in the Mughal empire it was islam vs Hinduism, and in the Safavid empire they had an internal conflict between the Sunnis and the shi’as

  45. The number one factor of the downfall of Islamic empires was internal fighting. This internal warfare caused them to become weaker and easier to invade.

  46. I think the main reason for the decline of the Islamic empires was from religious differences.

    The Safavids was the first to go because they had inter struggles with the Sunnis and the Shi’as.

    Without having a united empire where everyone is on the same page the empire won’t last as long.

  47. The decline of the islamic empires was a result of failing to convert to westernization. While many other regions were converting to westernization, and thriving from it, the islamic empires were not. They were, therefor, left behind with less technology than others.

  48. The main reason that led to the fall of the Islamic empires was religious wars. The Ottoman Empire fought several times with European powers. The Mughal empire fought within its self between Islam and Hinduism. The Safavid empire fought within itself between separate branches of Islam. These wars lead to a unstable empire and brought their decline

  49. The number one factor that had led to the decline of the Islamic empires at the time was the religious differences between their societies. From the Sunni and Shia altercation, the Ottomans and their dislike for Christianity, and the disagreement of Islamic and Hinduism had impacted the unification of those 3 empires leading to their economic decline.

  50. I believe one of the main reasons the Islamic empire declined is religion. The empire was torn between two religions which didn’t allow for unity among the people. This weakened the flow of their empire because people would never agree. Therefore they were made weaker and weaker by themselves

  51. I think that the three Muslim empires had a great role in the decline of the Islamic empire because like the Ottoman Empire grew very big in with killing there heirs to make sure they are still the rulers and by there heavy taxing.

  52. i think the number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was because the empire had split into different religions this made the empire weak and they were left behind in technology.

  53. I believe that differences in religions is the main reason for decline of Islamic empires. In the Ottoman Empire there peoples of Christianity and Hindu and Sunni Islam and Shia Islam, and with these differences were natural disagreement. Disagreement in religion led to conflicts which ultimately led to the decline of these Islamic Empires.

  54. I think the number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was the lack of the strength in the emperors. While the new leaders came in to power they could not control the demand the people needed or the ability to have a strong enough military to stop other empires from taking over.

  55. I think the number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was the lack of the strength in the emperors. While the new leaders came in to power they could not control the demand the people needed or the ability to have a strong enough military to stop other empires from taking over.

  56. I think the number one factor that led to the decline of the Islamic empires was the lack of the strength in the emperors. While the new leaders came in to power they could not control the demand the people needed or the ability to have a strong enough military to stop other empires from taking over.

  57. Religion differences and spending habits of these empires Led to a quick decline of power and quickly destroyed the empires of this time period.
