    This is my weekly civ contribution for everyone to enjoy!!

    These are comprised from Diversica & Varietas Delectat with very very little changes. In some the the civs i could not use all the units so i changed just a few things around.:p I tried to be true to Civ4. Changes would be nice if you have good ideas.

    Download here: http://files.filefront.com/Arabiarar/;10298935;/fileinfo.html

    When i hear the word Arabia i always think of the movie "Hollywood Knights" when the guy says, "Lawrence of Arabia":p

    Abu Bakr would be a good choice. Or perhaps Muhammed?

    I would avoid using Muhammed, just because it is considered a "major no no" among the religian of Islam to depict pictures of him.
    I know a game, but people are too sensitive these days.

    Here's a dds (static) leaderhead of civ3's modern era Abu Bakr. I think you can make it a King Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud

    Ibn Saud just came out. He's in the Petromod.

    Saddam Hussein would also be a good choice.

    The next best thing to Mohammed would be Caliph Umar. He's the one who really got Islam off the ground and is much more important and interesting than Abu Bakr. Problem is, he was clearly of the Sunni side and Abu Bakr was non divisive. Umar was a big athletic guy with influence in Mecca who befriended Mohammed and his new rel early on and essentially provided muscle so they wouldn't get hassled too much. After Mohammed and Abu Bakr were dead, he took over and actually made Islam into an empire by conquering not just Arabia but what is now Iran and Iraq. It is said he often strode the streets of Medina with a whip in hand to discipline evil doers.

    There is already a Muawiyah and a Harun al Rashid LH.
    I'm not sure how much your other 2 suggestions needed, IMO there are enough Arab LHs for any mod...
