"the contribution of Islam and Muslims in various fields of Arts, Science, Mathematics, Literature, etc"

AAA whose ancestors were raped, murdered and forcibly converted to islam, are you kidding with this statement. It is very funny if you are kidding but surely no one can take it seriously.

islam is the Opposite of everything you say. Anything it purports to have accomplished was done IN SPITE of islam or by its slaves/dhimmis.

Music is forbidden, as are most types of art, including anything that depicts the human body or face.

During the brief "golden age" there did seem to be an attempt to preserve some of the science in the conquered nations and this is their major accomplishment - they did not destroy everything. (not too impressive if you ask me).

tell me how many nobel prizes have been awarded to moslems from any sharia nation? Peace prizes excepted of course, because all they have to do is promise to stop killing people(for a while) to win that award.

islam is innately hostile to the open minds and free expression that is required to make significant innovative contributions. People like that could easily be punished to death in saudi or iran, the two great sharia nations.

Since the golden age was over in the 13th or 14th century, not much to speak of came out of islam since then, unless you know of something else.
