In the line of John Wansbrough, Hawting concentrated on the question for the religious milieu in which Islam came into being He analyzed all available sources about the religions on the Arabian peninsula in the time before Islam in detail According to Hawting, Islam did not develop within a world of polytheism as is reported by the traditional Islamic traditions which were written 150 to 200 years after Muhammad Instead, Islam came into being on the basis of a conflict among various types of monotheists which considered each other to fail in living a perfect monotheism, and considering each other to practice idolatry
Another theme of Hawting's research is the period of the Umayyad dynasty which was of great importance for the formation of Islam as a religion2 Hawting was a representative of the Revisionist School of Islamic Studies
