Islamic scholars and thinkers invented or laid the foundations of things without which the modern world is impossible to imagine, so it would not be out of place to call Muslim scientists the founders and inventors of today's modern age. Some of the most important inventions that revolutionized human life.

Leading the American team that developed the corona vaccine, the renowned Muslim scientist Dr. Al-Slavi, from immigration of the brilliant mind to the inventions of the world, Muslim scientists are prominent. Ibn Sina was one of the most famous Muslim scientists. He was also a physicist, philosopher, astronomer and theologian. Ibn Sina was a great physician who invented some methods thousands of years ago to eradicate epidemics which are being taken advantage of in modern times.

Lockdown has been implemented all over the world to prevent this. This method is also the method mentioned by Ibn Sina. Ibn Sina had proposed the philosophy of quarantine thousands of years ago that for any epidemic disease which is transmitted from one person to another, quarantine should be adopted first.

In Ibn Sina's most important book, The Cannon of Medicine, published in 1025, Ibn Sina offered his views on quarantine. Daily quarantine should be adopted to weaken the epidemic before it spreads. This book of Ibn Sina is very famous and has the status of a bright lamp. Medicine companies are still benefiting from this book. Ibn Sina was the first to find out how jaundice occurs. He also explained how to anesthetize a patient during the treatment of many deadly diseases. Many historians say that Ibn Sina was a physician who did not even charge for his services. Today, scientists and medicine companies around the world are benefiting from the research of this great Muslim scientist to deal with the corona virus. Most of the useful and necessary inventions of the world are due to Muslims and Arabs and they were invented at a time when Europe and the people of Europe were not even mentioned anywhere in the civilized world.

Today we remember the names of dramas and movies, but where are the deeds of Muslim heroes? Khalid bin Yazid, Zakariya, Razi, Ibn Sina, Al-Khwarizmi, Abu Rehan Al-Biruni, Al-Farabi, Ibn Muskwiyah, Ibn Rushd, Kandi, Abu Muhammad Khohbadi, Jabir ibn Hayyan, Musa ibn Shakir, Al-Batani, Ibn al-Hashim, Umar Khayal, Masudi, Abu al-Wafa 'and al-Zahrawi are completely unaware of the living conditions and scientific achievements of great scientists.

Ibn Sina's Kitab al-Qanun, Basri's Kitab al-Haywan, and Abu al-Qasim's Surgery continued to be read as textbooks in Europe until the seventeenth century. These books contained images of the human brain and nerves. Ibn Suri's book contained colorful illustrations of dried herbs. This book was declared the first color painting book of the Arabs. Shatiba is the one who brought the paper industry to its peak. The first inventor of the printing press and printing press was a Muslim scientist. The modern theory of blood circulation is attributed to William Harvey, although Ibn al-Nafis had proposed the theory long before that. The position of the body suggested by Abul Qasim Al-Zahrawi for the operation to remove the bladder stone is still being followed.

Muhammad ibn Zakariya Razi was the first physician in the world to invent a cure for smallpox and a vaccine for smallpox. Hukam ibn Hashim (Ibn al-Muqanna) made an artificial moon known as the month of Nakhshab. It rose from a well called Nakhshab and illuminated an area of ​​about two square miles. Abbas (Abul Qasim) bin Farnas, a Muslim (scientist) from Andalusia (Spain), had astonished the world by inventing three things. The first pair of spectacles, the second watch, the third a machine that could fly in the air. Ibrahim al-Fazzi was the first Muslim scientific engineer during the reign of Caliph Mansour. Who developed the first astrologer.

Ibn Sina's teacher, Abul Hasan, invented the first telescope. Hassan al-Zah turned his attention to rocket building and added torpedoes. Other Muslim industrial inventions include dynamite, compasses, olive oil, rose water, perfumes, perfumes, perfumes, mineral resources, textile weaving, soap making, glass making and war tools.

Omar Khayyam compiled the solar calendar. Extraordinary scientific information about the rotation of the sun and moon, eclipses, time-keeping and many other planets was also provided and written down by eminent Muslim scientists like Al-Biruni. Abbas bin Farnas is the great scientist who built the world's first "airplane". Muslim scientists such as Al-Battani Ibn Yunus and Azraqil devised a system to determine the qiblah and to detect the eclipse of the moon and the sun in advance. Al-Khwarizmi has rendered invaluable services in the field of arithmetic, geometry and geometry.

His book (Algebra and Competition) continued to be taught as a basic curriculum in European universities until the sixteenth century. Al-Khwarizmi wrote many important works, one of which is known as Al-Sind Hind. In his book Al-Jabro Al-Maqbalah, he has written for the solution of people's daily needs and issues such as inheritance, will, distribution, trade, buy and sell, exchange of currency, rent, practical measurement of land, circle and diameter of circle. The analogy of the calculation of some other objects such as the triad and the cone, etc. He was the first scientist to separate arithmetic and algebra and to present algebra in a scientific and logical way. Physics and Dynamics The physics services of Ibn Sina, al-Kandi, Nasir al-Din al-Tusi, and Mullah Sadra are of great importance initially. Ibn al-Haytham filled the field of physics with knowledge. He was a distinguished researcher in physics, mathematics, engineering, astronomy and medicine.

he inventions that revolutionized human history.


Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi was the first scientist to distinguish between arithmetic and algebra and to introduce algebra as a regular genre of mathematics.

Europe first became acquainted with this new system of arithmetic in the twelfth century when British researcher Robert of Chester Niall al-Khwarizmi translated his book, The Book of Algebra and Competition.

Camera and optics

The world's first and masterpiece book on optics was written by Al-Manazer Ibn Al-Haytham. His research on spherical and spherical constitutions is also a great achievement. He also described the magnifying power of the lens. He made fiery glasses and spherical mirrors on his lathe. Research and experiments on the Hadbi lens made possible the invention of the microscope and telescope in Europe. Ibn al-Haytham invented a method of locating a point on an arched mirror that led to the discovery of spectacles.

Ibn al-Haytham created diagrams to describe parts of the eye and invented technical terms such as the retina, the cataract, and the cornea that are still in use. He called the thin portion in the middle of the eye a lens in the shape of a lentil. In Latin, Masur was called Lental which later became Lens.

The world's first camera, the pinhole camera, was also a proud invention of Ibn al-Yaytham, which marked the beginning of the image industry.


An Arab by the name of Khalid was grazing goats one day in Kafa, Ethiopia. He noticed that his animals were tired after eating a certain type of herb. So he made the world's first coffee by boiling the berries of this tree in water. From Ethiopia, the coffee arrived in Yemen, where Sufis drank it all night to remember and worship God. Much of Mecca was reached in the fifteenth century, from where it reached Venice (Italy) in 1645. It was brought to England in 1650. One of the recipients was Pascoe Rosie, a Turk who opened the first coffee shop on London Street. The Arabic word coffee became coffee in Turkish, which became cafe in Italian and coffee in English.


The registration of physicians was started by Sanan Ibn Thabit in 943 in Baghdad. He ordered that all the doctors of the country be counted and then examined. The government registered 800 successful doctors and issued official certificates for practice. He also introduced the system of issuing licenses to run clinics. Immediately, the process of awarding diplomas and registration started all over the world which is still going on.

The clock

Clocks were widely used in the Islamic world seven hundred years before Europe. Caliph Harun al-Rashid sent a watch (water clock) as a gift to his contemporary, Emperor Charlemagne of France. Muhammad Ibn Ali Khorasani (1185 AH) was an expert in making wall clocks. He made a watch in Bab Gebron, Damascus.

Al-Muradi, an engineer from Islamic Spain, created a water clock that used mercury for gears and balancing. Ibn Yunus of Egypt wrote a treatise on the structure of the clock in which the multiple gear train was described in diagrams. Clocks began to be made in Germany in 1525 and in Britain in 1580.

War instrument

In the Ottoman Empire, the office known as Mehtran or Mehtar Khana used to play war instruments during the war. According to researchers, the Ottoman Empire was the first government to use military equipment during wars until the war ended.

Europe adopted it during the war with the Ottomans when it found the composers psychologically useful.


One thousand years before the Wright Brothers in the United States, Abbas Ibn Furnas, an Andalusian astronaut and engineer, first tried to fly in the air. According to one historian, in 852 he jumped from the minaret of the Great Mosque of Cordoba to test his aerial clothing. He thought he could fly like a bird with his glider. In 875, he built a glider-like machine with which he tried to fly over a mountain in Cordoba. This aerial machine was made of silk and eagle wings. It flew in the air for about ten minutes, but while swimming it suffered injuries because it did not make a tail like a bird to land in a glider.

The hospital

The world's first hospital was established in Cairo in 872 during the reign of Ahmed Ibn Toulon, where patients received free medical care. The hospital also had a well-trained nurse and training department for the care of patients. Later, hospitals were established in Baghdad and around the world in the same hospital style.


The world's greatest physician and mathematician was Bo Ali al-Hussein Ibn Abdullah al-Sina, who made some of the most important discoveries in the world of medicine. Al-Adawiyah has the status of the Gospel in the world of Qutb.

In physics, Ibn Sina was the first to regard empirical knowledge as the most reliable. He was the first physicist to say that the speed of light is not limited but has a certain speed. He saw the planet Venus with his own eyes without any instrument. He first described the physiology of the eye, anatomy and theory of vision. He described in detail all the veins and muscles inside the eye. How rocks are formed in the sea, how mountains are formed, how the bones of dead animals of the sea are turned into rocks. Today, to save the world from crises, epidemics, economic difficulties Will be.
