During the seven centuries of Islam in Andalusia has reached its golden ages that can be used as a center of Islamic civilization, which began the Caliph al-Walid (705-715 AD) In ​​this paper, the author tries to describe in general the development of Islam in Andalusia (Spain), with systematic discussion include: Introduction, establishment and jatuhya Andalusia into the Umayyads, Islam and development presence in the Umayyad State of Andalusia, the progress of Islam in Andalusia perdaban and destruction, and end with a concluding note.

Formation and fall into the power of Andalusia Ummaids

According to historical records, before Islam can master the North African region, in this area there are the forces of the Roman empire. This kingdom is always urge people to want to oppose the rule of Islam. But they thought it could be spent or in other words denagan Roman empire can be defeated by the power of Islam, so that the North African region can be controlled fully and Islam is the master of Andalusia.1

Before the conquest of Andalusia, the Muslims had taken control of North Africa and made as one of the province of the Umayyad Daulah. Full mastery over North Africa took place at the time of Caliph Abdul Malik (685-705 AD) .2

In the context of history, before they conquered Andalusia, in the reign of Caliph al-Walid before the Caliph Abdul Malik (685-705 AD), the Muslims had taken control of North Africa and made a province of the Umayyad Daulah, and the governor is Hasan bin Ghassani.2 Nu'man al-Daulah, but in the reign of the Umayyad caliph at the time of al-Walid, the governor of North Africa was replaced by Moses ibn Nushair. At the time of Moses ibn Nushair, they succeeded in occupying al-Jazair and Morocco and the former Barbarian.

In the process of the conquest of Andalusia there are three heroes of Islam that can be said to be the most meritorious led forces units there. They are Tahrif ibn Malik, Tariq ibn Ziyad and Musa Ibn Nushair. Tharif can be called a pioneer and investigator. He crossed the strait that lies between Morocco and the European continent with the forces of war, five hundred of them were horsemen, they boarded four ships provided by Julian. In the raid Tharif not have the means of resistance. He won and returned to North Africa to bring the spoils no small amount. Encouraged by the success Tharif and chaos that occurs in the body of the ruling royal Visighotic in Andalusia at the time, as well as a great encouragement to gain the spoils of war, Musa ibn Nushair in the year 711 AD, sent troops to Andalusia as many as 7000 people under the leadership of Tariq ibn Ziad.

Tariq Ibn Ziad more widely known as the conqueror of Andalusia when they were larger and more tangible results. His force consisted of barbarian tribes sebahagian supported by Musa ibn Nushair and some Arabs who sent the Caliph al-Walid. These troops then crossed the straits under Tariq ibn Ziad.3 A mountain of Tariq and his men first landed and set up his army, known as Giblaltar (Jabal Tariq). With this area under their control then opens the door widely to enter Andalusia. So the battle area, which is where King Balk Roderick.4

Tariq thus can invade Cardova, Granada, and Toledo. This victory provides a significant opportunity to conquer a wider kewilayah. On the basis of this is the end of Moses ibn Tariq Nushair down help. Finally Nushair and Tariq ibn Musa joined and successfully conquered the area important in Andalusia, as Saragosa, Novare, Karmona, Seville, and Merida.

The expansion is then performed on the territory of government Umar bin Abdu Aziz H 99 years or 717 M. Region who want to conquer the Pyrenees and southern France. But the conquest was a failure. Al-Samah, the leader of the troops were killed, and then handed over to Abd Rahman, but he also experienced failures, and finally the Islamic forces retreat. Namunpun war still continues to do so. Sehinnga second wave that began the eighth century the Muslims are able to control the entire region such as Andalusia region of southern France and parts of Italy, and finally the rule of Islam in this region is getting stronger.

The victories achieved Muslims seem so easy, it can not be separated from the external and internal factors, namely:

a. Internal factors, while internal factors are the conditions contained in the body of Islamic domination, including the leaders of Islamic fighters and soldiers involved in the conquest of Andalusia region in particular. The leaders are powerful figures, army compact, united and confident. Equally important are the teachings of Islam which indicated the soldiers of Islam, namely tolerance, brotherhood contained in the personal self of the Muslims that led to the population welcomed the Andalusian Islamic presence there.

b. External factors, while that which is meant by this external factor is a state located in the Andalusian country itself. During which the social, political and economic country in a sad state. Politically Andalusia region torn apart and share the country into several small. Gothic plus ruler being intolerant of religious currents that flow Monofisik authorities, especially against other faiths. Semantara Andalusia's population are followers of Judaism, they were forced diadaptis according to the Christian religion. People's shared among the classes so that the situation covered by poverty, oppression, and lack of equality hak.5
