The world as it is today

The premise of this althist is based upon the legend that in the year 628 AD the Prophet Muhammad sent envoys to the emperors of Rome and Persia, inviting them to convert to Islam. In the OTL, even if the legend is true the envoys were ignored. In this timeline, the Roman Emperor, Heraclius, was curious enough to personally investigate the new religion, ultimately leading to his own conversion and to the Arab conquest of the Middle East being averted.
