RE: [If there were no Islam the entire West would be still in Dark Ages - Prof. (Dr.) Anwar Ul Haque] = ... PROPAGANDA

Scientific and critical inquiry which usually means questioning everything for the sake of Truth(especially the veracity of Allah, Muhammad's so called divine revelations, his messenger claims etc...) has no place in Islam as it threatens the very fundamentals of its doctrines. If Allah made everything as it is and perfect, why would humans need to improve upon it with inventions? Islam's contribution is plagiarism of scientific advances (much like how the religion itself is a plagiarism of Biblical & Hebrew heritage) of ancient cultures like Persians, Hindus, Greeks, Egyptians and the likes.Islam STOLE the scientific wealth of the civilizations it invaded and claimed to be its own...which clearly is not. A simple example: Ancient Vedic and Babylonian mathematicians used the decimal system,numerals, zero and a host of other inventions for calculations which predates Islam by many centuries, The Arabs only copied this and propagated.

The medical works of both Sushruta (a surgeon and teacher of Ayurveda who flourished in the Indian city of Kashi by the 6th century BC.) and Charak (born c. 300 BC in a Maga Brahmin family was one of the principal contributors to the ancient art and science of Ayurveda, a system of medicine and lifestyle thought to be developed about 5000 years ago in Ancient India.) were translated into Arabic language during the Abbasid Caliphate (750 CE). These Arabic works made their way into Europe via intermediaries.[12] In Italy the Branca family of Sicily and Gaspare Tagliacozzi (Bologna) became familiar with the techniques of Sushruta. If Humankind owes anything at all, than it is to their forefathers who decided to use their mind, question and move towards a life of thought and action, rather than being primitive cave dwelling hunter gatherers. PLEASE STOP ...about the scientific contributions of Islam as there clearly aren't any. Don't you know that Koran preaches Earth is flat - ...
