    one reason is that Arab armies were united by their beliefs. Islam taught that Muslim warriors who died in the service of Islam would win a place in paradise. The idea of jihad also motivated many Muslim soldiers. The lure of riches to be won in the conquered lands was another powerful incentive.

    The Islamic empire spread quickly because of the "Four Rightly Guided Caliphs" who were close advisors to the first leader, chosen by members of the Muslim Community. These rulers oversaw a swift and massive expansion of Arab and Islamic influence in the region. Arab Muslims invaded the Persian Sassanid Empire and the Byzantine Roman Empire. They conquered the lands of Syria, Palestine, and Persia. They took the city of Jerusalem, and then marched on and conquered Byzantine and Egypt. Just three decades after the death of Muhammad, the Islamic empire stretched as far north as Armenia, as far west as Morocco, and as far east as Pakistan.

    The first one is right, through jihad and the united beliefs, the Islamic States united under one name of allah
