Impacts And Contribution Of Islam To World Civiliazation – Click For Details

By  | 
image Islam has had a profound global impact since it was founded in the seventh century. During what is known as the Golden Age of Islam, which lasted roughly between the mid-eighth century until the 13th century, the Muslim world was the center of intellectual activity, with Baghdad serving as the capital for philosophers, mathematicians and scientists. Mathematics, language, astronomy and medicine were particularly influenced by this culture and its effects can still be seen to this day. Mathematics::: Although the numbers we use today were developed in India and were originally called “Hindu numerals,” the symbolic system was spread across the Middle East by mathematician al-Khwarazmi and has come to be known as “Arabic numerals.” al-Khwarazmi also authored several important books on math, one of which includes various ways to solve quadratic equations using both words and letters to represent numerical values, a common practice today. The transliteration of his name, in fact, is Algorithmi, which is the origin of the term “algorithm.” The word “algebra” is derived from the Arabic word al-jabr, meaning to restore or complete. Language::: Like most languages, Arabic has spread throughout the world by way of trade and conquest. The Moors of North Africa, who invaded Spain in 711 and were not completely expelled until 1492, left a distinct mark on the Spanish language. Because the Muslim world was the center of philosophy, science, mathematics and other fields for most of the medieval period, many Arabic ideas and concepts were spread across Europe, and trade and travel through the region made understanding Arabic an essential skill for merchants and travelers alike. As a result, modern English includes Arabic-based words such as “admiral” from “amir-ar-ahl,” meaning chief of the transport; “sequin” derived from “sikkah,” a die used for coinmaking; and “jar” from “jarrah,” a large earthen vase.
