Science in a Golden Age - Al-Khwarizmi: The Father of Algebra

From fast cars and aeroplanes to computer encryption – mathematics underpins so much of modern life.

In this episode, Jim Al-Khalili uncovers how, between the 9th and 14th centuries, mathematicians from the Islamic world helped mathematicise science and lay the foundations of algebra.

He looks at the modern mathematics behind flight, and behind the record-breaking fastest car in the world, tracing the route back from these achievements to the legacy of the Persian mathematician Al Khwarizmi.

We also discover the role that the Islamic world played in giving us the modern numeral system that we take for granted in everyday life.

And, in the Sulemaniye Library in Istanbul, Jim uncovers a rare text by Al Kindi – perhaps the world’s earliest mathematical code breaker.

Muslims Invented Colleges and Universities

Did you know that Muslims were the first to manufacture paper at an international level?

That Muslims were the one who spread paper to the entire globe, from India to Europe, though they did not invent it.

Averroes & the European Renaissance

Ibn Rushd was a philosopher, physician and Islamic jurist of Muslim Spain.

He spent a great part of his life as a judge and physician in Morocco and in the Andalus.

He is also celebrated in medieval and Renaissance Europe for his commentaries on Aristotle and for his influence on the European medieval philosophy.

Born into a family of prominent judges, he studied religious law, medicine, mathematics, and philosophy.

In 1153 he was in Marrakech engaged in astronomical observations. Ten years later, the philosopher Ibn Tufayl (Abubacer) recommended him to the Almohad ruler, Abu Ya’qub Yusuf, who was seeking someone to write commentaries on Aristotle’s works...

In the ensuing years he occupied the office of chief judge in Seville, then in Cordoba...

Islam’s Historical Contribution to Commerce and Finance

Islam and Europe, c.1000–1517: Commerce, Finance and the transmission of Eastern resource portfolios via the Islamic ‘bridge of the world’

Eurocentric world history, as already noted, assumes that the rise of commerce was given its decisive thrust by the Europeans, most especially the Italians, after about 1000 ce.

This date, of course, conventionally signifies the end of the Dark Ages. But the period after about 500 and especially after 650 could be called the period of the Eastern ‘Bright Dark Age’, especially the Middle Eastern Dark bright Age (Bala et al 2010).

While Afro-Asian trade accelerated after about 1000 this owes its primary thrust to the growing interconnections between the Islamic Middle East and Africa in the west, as well as India, Southeast Asia and especially China in the east. The Middle East in effect constituted the Bridge of the World...

Early Women of Science, Technology, Medicine and Management

This article is a paper submitted to and presented at WISE 2018: World Muslim Women's Summit & Exhibition, organised by TASAM, Istanbul, Turkey, from 28th Feb - 4th March 2018.

For several years, Dr Mohammed Akram Nadwi conducted a long term and large scale project to unearth the biographies of thousands of women who participated in the hadith tradition throughout Islamic history.

In Al-Muhaddithat: The Women Scholars in Islam,[6] Dr Nadwi summarized his 40-volume biographical dictionary (in Arabic) of the Muslim women who studied and taught hadith.

Even in this short text, he demonstrates the central role women had in preserving the Prophet's teaching, which remains the master-guide to understanding the Qur'an as rules and norms for life.

Within the bounds of modesty in dress and manners, women routinely attended and gave classes in the major mosques and madrasas, travelled intensively for ‘the knowledge', transmitted and critiqued hadith, issued fatwas, and so on.

Some of the most renowned male scholars have depended on, and praised, the scholarship of their female teachers. The women scholars enjoyed considerable public authority in society, not as the exception, but as the norm...

The Islamic historian who can explain why some states fail and others succeed

Born in Tunis on May 27, 1332, Ibn Khaldun pioneered the fields of sociology and history, as well as touching on economics and science, during his long life spent serving as an ambassador and supreme justice across the Islamic Mediterranean.

His history book the Muqaddimah puts him up with Herodotus and Thucydides as one of the fathers of that discipline, while the Scottish theologian Robert Flint once said that ‘Plato, Aristotle and Augustine were not his peers, and all others were unworthy of being even mentioned along with him’.

Jonathan Sacks, the former chief rabbi, said of him that ‘he has every claim to be called the world’s first sociologist. Not for another 300 years would the West produce a figure of comparable originality.’...

The House of Wisdom: Baghdad’s Intellectual Powerhouse

The heyday of Baghdad was 1,200 years ago when it was the thriving capital of the Muslim world.

It was home to the House of Wisdom, an academy of knowledge that attracted brains from far and wide.

From mathematics and astronomy to zoology, the academy was a major centre of research, thought and debate in Muslim Civilisation.
