Please explain where all of that was in the Arabian Peninsula. The Muslims did not progress in science and medicine until they conquered advanced, mainly Christian, civilizations. Much of this advancement came as a result of Christians, Jews, and Persians working in these areas of inquiry, or those who converted to Islam. Let us not forget the advanced societies of India.

Why is it that Muslim nations no longer excel in science and technology, now that Judaism and Christianity have been virtually wiped out in these areas? Israel is a center of science and technology, while most Arab nations in the area are third-world countries.

You claim WAY TO MUCH credit for Islam!
