Inventions in the Islamic World

“If there is much misunderstanding in the West about the nature of Islam, there is also much ignorance about the debt our own culture and civilisation owe to the Islamic World. It is a failure, which stems, I think from the straight jacket of history, which we have inherited. The medieval Islamic world, from Central Asia to the shores of the Atlantic, was a world where scholars and men of learning flourished. But because we have tended to see Islam as the enemy of the West, as an alien culture, society and system of belief, we have tended to ignore or erase its great relevance to our own history.”   Prince Charles in a speech “Islam and the West”, Oxford, 27th October 1993

This is truly mesmerizing MashAllah!
Whatever khair there is in the world today, it is because of Islam as a civilization contributed so much to humanity at large. When there were dark age in Europe, Muslim world was the beacon of knowledge, sciences, inventions and discoveries. The language of knowledge was Arabic and students from all over the world traveled to Andalusia, Baghdad, Damascus, Bukhara, Samarkand, Istanbul and Delhi to seek knowledge. The tragedy is that today, we Muslims are unaware of great achievements of our forefathers. InshAllah, we will rebuild this world again, drawing the khair from Quran and Sunnah countering the fasad spread by the Dajjali system of Kufr in power today. This is our duty, this is our mission, this is our passion, alhamdolillah.

No doubt Muslims believe in all messengers sent by "Allah" including our beloved prophet Muhammad, He tell us to offer hajj and umrah that will be the facility for all Muslims to offer and apply for Umrah visa.
