Muslims were defeated in Al – Andalus(Present Spain) internally before they were defeated by the external crusader enemy!
The period of the kingdom states lasted more than half a century, in which Al-Andalus was divided into twenty three weak states, who used to pay tribute to the tyrant crusader king of Castile (Alfonso VII) to repel their evil. Also, they used to fight each other, sometimes seeking support from Spanish mercenaries in order to defeat this Muslim king or another.
This was the state of the Muslim kings! They used to give tribute to the crusaders even though they were more powerful than them if they had all united under the leadership of one Muslim.
How similar are these kings to the present Muslim rulers who help crusaders and zionists in plundering and stealing resources of Muslim lands!
