Repeat after me: the rule of the arabs in their own civilization was marginal at best.

1. In regard to al-3Ulum al-Islamiya 70% (see Ali dashti) was composed and written by non-Arabs and most of them were Persians and I include here hadith, tarikh, asbab al-nuzul, ansab etc...

2. What is most amazing is that it was non-Arabs both Muslims and Christians (Nestorians) that changed the defective Arabic langauge rasm and shaped the Arabic language in the way we know it now. It was Sibawayhe who was non Arab that sorted out the Arabic language grammar and it was Hunein Ibn Ishaq who was a Nestorian that introduced the short vowels (fatha damma kasra) to the defective rasm and introduced many _new_ Arabic words the likes of tuhal and balgham and safra (based on Sibawayhe's F3L) and these words would have had no meaning to Muhammad and his generation and may be his Allah too.

Just imagine some Pakistani after the invasion of India by the Brits sorting out the English langauge with no English qawamees and no ma3ajim (oh I forgot that you do not know any Arabic) I will bet you a buck that we would have had a very different English language and this is indeed what happened in the case of Arabic.

3. The sira we have is a redaction by Ibn Hisham who was born and Egypt and lived all his life in Egypt and his source was Ibn Ishaq who was the grand son of a Syrian Christian! So much for the Arabs and the sira of their rasul being written by non-Arabs!

4. The translation of the Greek learning from Greek to Syriac and then to Arabic was done by Nestorians eg: Hunein Ibn Ishaq and the Bukhtishoos and non of it was done by any Arab! And all the great minds of the period were non-Arabs!

So what were the Arabs doing in the meantime? Looting and telling the world that this is the wish of the God of the Universe. So much for the islamic civilization.
