Islam was fundamentally different from the religions practiced in Pre-Islamic Arab society. The religious beliefs of Pre-Islamic Arab society revolved around polytheism and idol worship. Islam preached monotheism and a set of beliefs which were socially and intellectually very different from the older religious beliefs.
