Some of the Islamic inventions and Achievement facts

The Islamic education system taught the Muslims to broaden their thinking in everything they do. Also encouraged the Muslims to achieve the best in life.
To use their minds in the best way they can.

In almost every field of knowledge
Muslims made new inventions and discoveries with practical outcomes that helped develop the society.

Did You Know?That between the 7th and 12th centuries, when religion dominated European culture that Muslim educational institutions led the way? As the results of their progressive education reached the West through Muslim works covering everything from medicine to history they helped encourage the revival of learning in Europe.

A major breakthrough in communications occurred in Baghdad under the ‘Abbasid Caliphs.
Carrier pigeons were used as a postal service. It is mentioned in a book that at one time there would be about 1,900 pigeons in the lofts of the citadel in Cairo, which was the communication nerve centre at the time.

Zheng He was a Muslim who helped transform China into the regional superpower of his time.
Within 28 years of travel, he visited 37 countries in the course of seven monumental sea voyagers. Zheng He sailed throughout the Indian Ocean decades before Christopher Columbus or Vasco de Gama and with ships five times bigger.

Did you know?
Muslim explorers journeyed to the far-flung corners of their world in spectacular voyages of discovery. From Ibn Battuta walking, riding and sailing over 75,000 miles, Zeng a Chinese Muslim sailed the oceans and navigated to Mecca around 12 century.

Caliph al-Ma’mun, who ruled Baghdad from 813 to 833 CE, gave astronomy the patronage and impetus it needed to become a major science.
He built the first observatory in Islam, and arguably the first observatory in the world or in history.

Abbas ibn Firnas was the first person to make a real attempt to construct a flying machine and fly.
His first flight took place in 852 in Cordoba when he wrapped himself in a loose cloak stiffened with wooden struts and jumped from the minaret of the Great Mosque of Cordoba. Though this attempt was unsuccessful, he continued working on improving his design.

Did you know? that hospitals, as we know them today, were first established by early Muslims? They offered the best available medical service at that time and cared for all people free of charge.
Muslims were honor-bound to provide treatment for the sick, whoever they may be.
The first organized hospital was built in Cairo in 872CE. The Ahmad ibn Tūlūn Hospital treated and gave free medicine to all patients. It provided separate bath houses for men and women, a rich library and a section for the insane.

Did you know? A Muslin surgeon named Al-Zahrawi, known in the west as Abulcasis, introduced more than 200 surgical tools in his medical encyclopaedia between (936-1013 CE). He included illustrations and detailed information on how and when each instrument was to be used.

Did you know? That historians of astronomy often refer to the time from the 8th through the 14th centuries as the Islamic period? As that was when most study of the stars took place in the Muslim world, Muslims also developed observatories during that time.
