Besides Allah the word that comes more than any in the Holy Quran is "Ilm" which means knowledge. All long as Muslims adhered to the principle of collecting knowledge and learning they did very well.

Let us go back to education and leave the rest like fighting etc. to others. This is where salvation is. As far as fighting is concerned peace and love and forgiveness is mentioned far more time in the holy Quran then war.
