==Early Arab era==
==Early Arab era==
In 670 AD, the first Arab conquest of the [[North Africa]]n coastal plain took place under [[Uqba ibn Nafi]], a general serving under the [[Umayyad]]s of [[Damascus]]. The [[Umayyad]] Muslims brought their language, their system of government, and Islam to Morocco. Many of the Berbers slowly converted to Islam, mostly after Arab rule had receded. The first independent Berber state in the area of modern Morocco was the [[Kingdom of Nekor]], an emirate in the [[Rif Mountains]]. It was founded by [[Salih I ibn Mansur]] in 710, as a client state to the [[Rashidun Caliphate]]. After the outbreak of the [[Great Berber Revolt]] in 739, the Berbers formed other independent states such as the [[Miknasa]] of [[Sijilmasa]] and the [[Barghawata]].

According to medieval legend, [[Idris ibn Abdallah]] had fled to Morocco after the Abbasids' massacre of his tribe in Iraq. He convinced the [[Awraba]] Berber tribes to break their allegiance to the distant Abbasid caliphs in [[Baghdad]] and he founded the [[Idrisid Dynasty]] in 788. The Idrisids established [[Fes, Morocco|Fes]] as their capital and Morocco became a centre of Muslim learning and a major [[regional power]]. The Idrissids were ousted in 927 by the [[Fatimid Caliphate]] and their Miknasa allies. After Miknasa broke off relations with the Fatimids in 932, they were removed from power by the [[Maghrawa]] of Sijilmasa in 980.
