Picture ISIS almost conquering France and all of Europe. That is what almost happened at the Battle of Tours France.
It is considered the most important battle ever won for the sake of civilization. Islam was only about 175 years old, but Islam had conquered three times the area of the Roman Empire at its zenith.

By the sword at the command of Allah.

The Quranic commentaries, the Hadeeth, Bukhari (2:24) – “Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform a that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning.”

“October 732),The Battle of Tours in what is now west-central France.
Abd-ar-Ramān, the Muslim governor of Córdoba, had invaded Aquitaine (present southwestern France) Charles Martel stationed his forces to defend the city of Tours from the Muslims. The Muslim cavalry attacks broke upon Charles’s massed infantry, and after ʿAbd-ar-Raḥmān was killed in the fighting, the Arabs retreared southward. There were no further Muslim invasions of Frankish territory, and Charles’s victory has often been regarded as decisive for world history, since it preserved western Europe from Muslim conquest and Islāmization.”

Later Christian chroniclers and pre-20th century historians praised Charles Martel as the champion of Christianity, characterizing the battle as the decisive turning point in the struggle against Islam, a struggle which preserved Christianity as the religion of Europe; according to modern military historianVictor Davis Hanson, “most of the 18th and 19th century historians, like Gibbon, saw Poitiers (Tours), as a landmark battle that marked the high tide of the Muslim advance into Europe.”[24] Leopold von Ranke felt that “Poitiers was the turning point of one of the most important epochs in the history of the world.”[25]
