You had no clue about anything in regard to Easten Chrsitianity in the late antique period and in early islam, or to this day and their great contribution to the Arabic language civilization (and not i do not call it the islamic civilization). you also did not know anything about the _transmission_ of the Greek learning (oh you called the Greeks the pagans, I think it is an honor and I'm a proud pagan/Hellene too) . and you did not know anything about the way a single man changed the Arabic language and made Arabic a great world language and that is Huein Ibn Ishaq, and do you know why? Because of your poor Muslim Pakistani education you are not demanding of the tendentious Muslim sources that you seem to read.

The Muslim doctors and men of science and logic were not Arabs as almost all of them were non-Arab, eg: al-Kindi was Mesopotamian and Ibn Sina was a cultured Iranian man . Most of the doctors of the time were Eastern Christians and jews and many of the great thinkers of the time were also Jews and Christians the likes of al-Maymoon aka the great Maimonides and the great thinker and neoplatonist al-Batriq and the very cultured the Christian al-Knidi and this is just to name a few. The real issue here is this so called Muslim civilization was actually a culture and civilization where the contibution of non_muslims_ to it was a very essential part to such civilization. Even the great books of islamic tafseer and hadith and sira were almost all written by non Arabs!

And no I'm not really interested in teaching you anything about a suject that you cannot even understand but still have the audcity to debate. Why is that ya ayuha la-faylasoof al-kabeer? Is it your ego? It must be.

And like i said the contribution of the Arabs to their own civilization was marginal at best

I do not think you understood the sentence that I wrote quoting the historian C. Becker but it is time to translate it; "It is bizarre but without the Greek civilization (Alexander the Great) there would have been no islamic civilization" And listen do not even debate with me the translation of such sentence as you do not know anything about anything except your bogus fahlawa.

Do you know what this means? It means that civilizations borrow from each other and in this case the foundation of the Arabic language/Islamic civilization was the great Greek pagans as you call them and that without the help of the old civilizations and various religions and cultures of the civilized Muddle East there would have been no so called Islamic civilization. Now do you get it or are you really beyond help? You tell us ya ayuha al-fahlawi al-kabeer?

Do you know what this great sentence means?

1. It means: Old civlizations are not conjured away.

2. And: Religions do not spring fully fledged from the head of Prophets (see PC)

These two simple conclusions are beyond your poor eduaction but they also changed the way we see the history of early Islam.

You are nothing but fahlawa wa hadaqa or style but no substance
