"Innovation" is the dirtiest word in the world to a Moslem.
16 September, 2006 12:52


Taking this comment from uaecommunityblog posted in responce to my post on Qatar Science and Tech Park I want to enlighten readers about some historical facts. A few very good sites that would provide more insight than my words are MuslimHertiage.com and 1001Inventions.com. A quick scroll through these websites would show how the Muslims scholars contributed to human civilization and its advancement.

"It is highly probable that but for the Arabs modern European civilization would never have arisen at all; it is absolutely certain that but for them, it would have not assumed that character which has enabled it to trascend all previous phases of evolution. For although theres not a single aspect of European growth in which the decisive influence of Islamic culture is not traceable, nowhere is it so clear and momentous as in the genesis of that power which constitutes the permanent distinctive force of the modern world and supreme source of its victory--natural science and the scientific spirit".[R. Briffault: The Making of Humanity ]

After all it is a time to re-embrace innovation, as commented by 'dg' because innovation an invention is not new to the Arab or the Muslim world. We need to just wake up and as Allam-a-Iqbal the Great Poet and Philosopher said:
"They were surely your ancestors, but what are you ?
Sitting in idleness, waiting for tomorrow are you "

Its time to rise and shine. May God Bless us All !!!!

Everything you mention is ancient history. Tell me about Islamic contrbutions made to science, technology, philosophy, art, economics or medicine in the past 500 years. I can't think of any. (And I don't count al-Wahhab or Sayyid Qutb to be philosophers.)

Why did the intellectual and educational aspects of Islam stop dead in their tracks over half a millennium ago? More importantly, is there anything at all that can be done to resurrect them?

I blame the Ottomans, but they've been out of power for almost a century, and besides, Turkey is a lot more intellectually developed than Arab Islam.

You are true and your words support my cries... we have to make history again and develop our selves morally intellectually and economically.
