Also important were developments in India in the first few centuries ce. Although the decimal system for whole numbers was apparently not known to the Indian astronomer Aryabhata born , it was used by his pupil Bhaskara I in , and by the system had reached northern Mesopotamia, where the Nestorian bishop Severus Sebokht praised its Hindu inventors as discoverers of things more ingenious than those of the Greeks. See South Asian mathematics. Most of the translations were done from Greek and Syriac by Christian scholars, but the impetus and support for this activity came from Muslim patrons. The investigation of such numbers formed a continuing tradition in Islam.
This early Persian astrolabe with a geared calendar movement is the oldest geared machine in existence in a complete state. It illustrates an important stage in the development of the various complex astronomical machines from which the mechanical clock derives. Today is Women's Equality Day.

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Increase me in knowledge. No one thinks of this era of history any lon Science is a way to life, but what did muslims add to that way? Muslim scholars added and positioned the foundations of modern science to a large extent. Born in Persia more than a thousand years ago, Ibn Sina was one of the greatest thinkers of his time — a philosopher, scientist and physician who made significant discoveries, especially in the field of medicine, and wrote more than one hundred books.
As a child, Ibn Sina was extremely bright, a voracious reader who loved to learn and was fortunate to have the best teachers. He spent his life traveling…. Al-Biruni has had considerable influence on modern science, but none of his work was translated into western languages until the 20th century.
Az-Zahrawi, known to the West by his Latin name Albucasis, was simply the greatest Muslim surgeon, with European surgeons of his time coming to regard him as a greater authority than even Galen Al-Kindi was a prominent individual and a versatile genius in the History of the medieval Islamic Golden Age.

President Obama, for instance, in his June 4, speech in Cairo , praised Muslims for their historical scientific and intellectual contributions to civilization:.
How often do we take out the time to think about those extra ordinary minds who made life easier for us? Raman also worked on the acoustics of musical instruments. He was the first to investigate the harmonic nature of the sound of the Indian drums such as the tabla and the mridangam. He discovered that, when light traverses a transparent material, some of the deflected light changes in wavelength. This phenomenon is now called the Raman scattering and is the result of the Raman effect. In October , he collapsed in his laboratory.

London, England CNN -- Think of the origins of that staple of modern life, the cup of coffee, and Italy often springs to mind. Along with the first university, and even the toothbrush, it is among surprising Muslim inventions that have shaped the world we live in today. The origins of these fundamental ideas and objects -- the basis of everything from the bicycle to musical scales -- are the focus of " Inventions," a book celebrating "the forgotten" history of 1, years of Muslim heritage. Hassani hopes the exhibition will highlight the contributions of non-Western cultures -- like the Muslim empire that once covered Spain and Portugal, Southern Italy and stretched as far as parts of China -- to present day civilization.
The following is a list of inventions made in the medieval Islamic world , especially during the Islamic Golden Age ,     as well as in later states of the Age of the Islamic Gunpowders such as the Ottoman and Mughal empires. The Islamic Golden Age was a period of cultural, economic and scientific flourishing in the history of Islam , traditionally dated from the eighth century to the fourteenth century, with several contemporary scholars [ who? Science and technology in the Islamic world adopted and preserved knowledge and technologies from contemporary and earlier civilizations, including Persia, Egypt, India, China, and Greco-Roman antiquity, while making numerous improvements, innovations and inventions. In essence their propositions concerning the properties of quadrangles which they considered assuming that some of the angles of these figures were acute of obtuse, embodied the first few theorems of the hyperbolic and the elliptic geometries. Their other proposals showed that various geometric statements were equivalent to the Euclidean postulate V.
T here is no such thing as Islamic science — for science is the most universal of human activities. But the means to facilitating scientific advances have always been dictated by culture, political will and economic wealth. What is only now becoming clear to many in the west is that during the dark ages of medieval Europe, incredible scientific advances were made in the Muslim world. Geniuses in Baghdad, Cairo, Damascus and Cordoba took on the scholarly works of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, Greece, India and China, developing what we would call "modern" science. New disciplines emerged — algebra, trigonometry and chemistry as well as major advances in medicine, astronomy, engineering and agriculture. Arabic texts replaced Greek as the fonts of wisdom, helping to shape the scientific revolution of the Renaissance.

For hundreds of years, while Europe was mired in the Dark Ages, the medieval Islamic empire was at the forefront of science — in sad contrast to the state of many Muslim countries today. Jim Al-Khalili asks what has been impeding progress, and examines some projects that could herald a brighter future. The economies of some of these countries — such as the Gulf States, Iran, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco, Malaysia and Pakistan — have been growing steadily for a number of years, and yet, in comparison with the West, the Islamic world still appears somewhat disengaged from modern science. The leaders of many of these countries understand very well that their economic growth, military power and national security all rely heavily on technological advances.
