For example, some things that were passed along these trade routes were: spices, perfumes, precious metals, ivory and silk headed north from Yemen. Over the years the traders would remember and carry on what they learned from Muhammad. Mecca became the center of trade and the center of Islam that leads to the spread of faith from traders and merchants. In Document E, “The Ordinances of Government,” it also helped to spread Islam by explaining the rules in a sense to the Muslims to prevent any wrongful actions.
