Islamic Golden Age Coffee


  • Some of the inventions journalist Paul Vallely has stated to have come from the Islamic Golden Age include the camera obscura, coffee, soap bar, tooth paste, shampoo, distilledalcohol, uric acid, nitric acid, alembic, valve, reciprocating suction piston pump, mechanized waterclocks, quilting, surgical catgut, vertical-axle windmill, inoculation, cryptanalysis,frequency analysis, three-course meal, stained glass and quartz glass, Persian carpet, and celestial globe.
  • The Goods The Dome of Rock The muslims of the golden age invented many things that are still used today such as Algebra, coffee, universties, medical schools, torpedoe weapons and marching bands to name a few.
  • By the time the Ottoman Empire rose from the ashes, the Golden Age is considered to have come to an end.
  • A very clear example of Islam making exaggerated claims about its intellectual legacy is the international touring exhibition called "1001 Inventions: Discover the Golden Age of Muslim Civilization", which first opened at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester in 2006.
  • The theory of Islamic contribution is predicated on the notion of the Islamic "Golden Age" from the 7th to 13th centuries when, textbooks tell us, "the Islamic world contributed to agriculture, the arts, economics, industry, law, literature, navigation, philosophy, sociology and technology."
  • Warner presents the term "the Golden Age of Islam" as a European Christian construction to contrast with the Dark Ages, which he ascribes to the Catholic Church.




















































Islamic Golden Age Influence on European Renaissance


  • Another common feature during the Islamic Golden Age was the large number of Muslim polymath scholars, who were known as "Hakeems", each of whom contributed to a variety of different fields of both religious and secular learning, comparable to the later "Renaissance Men" (such as Leonardo da Vinci) of the European Renaissance period.
  • It was this Islamic civilization in Spain that was the main threshold behind the European Renaissance.
  • Between the 9th and 13th centuries -- the Golden Age of Islam -- the only people doing decent work in science, philosophy or medicine were Muslims.
  • Europeans, Chinese, and Hindus, not Muslims, invented most of the breakthroughs Obama credited to Islamic innovation. … Much of the Renaissance, in fact, was more predicated on the centuries-long flight of Greek-speaking Byzantine scholars from Constantinople to Western Europe to escape the aggression of Islamic Turks.
  • It is the principles outlining the mission of Prophet Muhammad that made a global change in the world’s scientific realm and the world’s social and spiritual culture that formed the Golden Age of Islam from the 7th to the 15th century.
  • We read in most accounts of the history of science that the contribution of the ancient Greeks would not be matched until the European Renaissance and the arrival of the likes of Copernicus and Galileo in the 16th century.
  • The process which unfolds from Llull and Dante, onward into the Fifteenth-century Renaissance, can well be viewed as a grand dialogue, a Great Fugue, in which the theme of the relationship between man and God is developed, contrapuntally, by the Platonists of the European Islamic heritage and their Christian humanist interlocutors.





























































Sam Harris Islamic Golden Age


  • I believe the point he was trying to make is that even with advancements in science or the application of pluralism during the time of the Islamic Golden Age, it happened despite of Islam not because of it.
  • "The so called Islamic golden age was actually by non muslims, atheists, apostates and even a couple of christians.
  • It may be worth considering preemptive nuclear strikes on Muslim countries, as people like Sam Harris suggest, and forced conversion to Christianity of all Muslims in Western countries.
  • The Islamic Golden Age is crucial in history for many reasons; the faith relations or lack of them in this period have informed music, literature, discussion, intellectual collaborative achievements, medicine, gastronomy, clothing, language, art, architecture, scientific enquiry, theology and the general culture of Spain and beyond to modern day.
  • Sam Harris has repeatedly attributed extremist ideas not just to Islamic extremists, but to "Islam" generally.
  • Many Muslims and Left-wingers like to bring up The Golden Age Of Islam as if that's supposed to defend the atrocious doctrine of Islam.
  • I could easily reverse the accusation and say that those liberal Christians or atheists who attack Sam Harris, Ayaan Hirsi Ali or Richard Dawkins for criticizing Islam (via a shallow analogy with their criticism, sometmes too strong indeed, of Christianity) are misunderstading Islam and the lessons of history.
  • Those who would argue that this extended period is not part of the Golden Age due to the characterisation of faith relations here perhaps miss the point and the nature of this must be understood in relation to wider contextual backgrounds.
  • Muslim isn't a race!







How Did the Islamic Golden Age Contribute to the Renaissance in Europe


  • The achievements of Muslims during the golden age of their civilization and their transmission to Europe through Spain were responsible for the renaissance of Western Europe.
  • Islamic decorative arts were highly valued imports to Europe throughout the Middle Ages.
  • Your tour of the Golden Age of Islamic Civilization begins with the who, what, why, where, when, and how of this great period and its impact.
  • The Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides, Muslim sociologist-historian Ibn Khaldun, Carthage citizen Constantine the African who translated Greek medical texts, and Al-Khwarizmi's collation of mathematical techniques were important figures of the Golden Age.
  • The Golden Age also, little by little, transformed the diet of medieval Europe by introducing such plants as plums, artichokes, apricots, cauliflower, celery, fennel, squash, pumpkins, and eggplant, as well as rice, sorghum, new strains of wheat, the date palm, and sugarcane.
  • The Jewish philosopherMoses Maimonides, Muslim sociologist-historian Ibn Khaldun, Carthage citizen Constantine the African who translated ancient Greek medical texts, and the PersianAl-Khwarzimi's collation of mathematical techniques were important figures of the Golden Age.
  • Despite Mr. Obama's image as an Ivy League-educated intellectual, he lacks historical competency in both facts and interpretation. … Obama … claimed that "Islam. carried the light of learning through so many centuries, paving the way for Europe's Renaissance and Enlightenment." medieval Islamic culture … had little to do with the European rediscovery of classical Greek and Latin values.
  • It depends what period of Medieval History you're talking about (since the term can often be a catch-all referring to everything from late antiquity to the Renaissance, or can specifically refer to the period after the High Middle Ages - 14th/15th centuries), and what specific parts of Europe and the Middle East.












































































































































































Islamic Golden Age Time Period


  • This period is traditionally said to have ended with the collapse of the Abbasid caliphate due to Mongol invasions and the Siege of Baghdad in 1258 AD. A few contemporary scholars place the end of the Islamic Golden Age as late as the end of 15th to 16th centuries.
  • The author of a Handbook for Travelers in Syria and Palestine in 1868 observed that the most beautiful mosques of Damascus were "like Mohammedanism itself, now rapidly decaying" and relics of "the golden age of Islam".
  • The Golden Age of Islam, according to most historians, spanned the 8th to the 13th centuries -- a time that happens to coincide with the heart of the Dark Ages in Europe.
  • Regrettably this pre-Islamic era of learning came to an abrupt end following the Arab ( Muslim ) invasions and the defeat of Sassanid Persia The reality is that most of this'synthesis' took place in the pre-Islamic period until Islamic invasions sank both Persia and India into a Dark Age lasting centuries.
  • Below we tell the story of the Golden Age of Muslim culture, look at famous scholars like Ibn Khaldun (who revolutionized mathematics) and Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi (the polymath, mathematician, and social philosopher), and discuss some of the inventions and discoveries of this age.
  • Continuing on the naming rights theme, Dr. Tyson also describes the Islamic origins of Arabic numerals, Algebra, Algorithm, Alchemy and Alcohol as products of the Islamic Golden Age of Science in 800 to 1100 AD. The Golden Age of Baghdad, Christians and Jews were semi-slaves, Christian women were used as sex slave, as a scientist, I’m telling you this was a disaster, Islamic philosophy denied the existence of physical laws and cause-and-effect.
  • The Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides, Muslim sociologist-historian Ibn Khaldun, Carthage citizen Constantine the African who translated Greek medical texts, and the Muslim Al-Khwarzimi's collation of mathematical techniques were important figures of the Golden Age.
