The Great Muslim Scientists of All Time

Here is a little intro about them and their work to the
world of science.All the scientists are before 14th century ..,When you the
Europe was called a Dark continent ,Muslims Scientists Were ruling in all over
the world!
I don't know what happened now But anyways Don't Forget the Past=)
Better be Proud!

Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī

Consequently he is considered to be the father of algebra,[6] a title he shares
with Diophantus. Latin translations of his Arithmetic, on the Indian numerals,
introduced the decimal positional number system to the Western world in the
12th century.[5] He revised and updated Ptolemy's Geography as well as writing
several works on astronomy and astrology.

His contributions not only made a great impact on mathematics, but on language
as well. The word algebra is derived from al-jabr, one of the two operations
used to solve quadratic equations, as described in his book.

For complete intro:


Avicenna was a Persian polymath and the foremost physician and Islamic
philosopher of his time. He was also an astronomer, chemist, Hafiz, logician,
mathematician, physicist, poet, psychologist, scientist, Sheikh, soldier,
statesman and theologian.

His most famous works are The Book of Healing, a vast philosophical and
scientific encyclopaedia, and The Canon of Medicine, which was a standard
medical text at many Islamic and European universities up until the early 19th
century .
Ibn Sīnā is regarded as a father of early modern medicine, and
clinical pharmacology particularly for his introduction of systematic
experimentation and quantification into the study of physiology,] his discovery
of the contagious nature of infectious diseases, the introduction of quarantine
to limit the spread of contagious diseases, the introduction of experimental
medicine, evidence-based medicine, clinical trials, randomized controlled
trials, efficacy tests, clinical pharmacology, neuropsychiatry, risk factor
analysis, and the idea of a syndrome,[30] and the importance of dietetics and
the influence of climate and environment on health.
He is also considered the father of the fundamental concept of momentum in
physics, and regarded as a pioneer of aromatherapy.

George Sarton,, the father of the history of science, wrote in the Introduction
to the History of Science:

"One of the most famous exponents of Muslim universalism and an eminent
figure in Islamic learning was Ibn Sina, known in the West as Avicenna
(981-1037). For a thousand years he has retained his original renown as one of
the greatest thinkers and medical scholars in history. His most important
medical works are the Qanun (Canon) and a treatise on Cardiac drugs. The 'Qanun
fi-l-Tibb' is an immense encyclopedia of medicine. It contains some of the most
illuminating thoughts pertaining to distinction of mediastinitis from pleurisy;
contagious nature of phthisis; distribution of diseases by water and soil;
careful description of skin troubles; of sexual diseases and perversions; of
nervous ailments.


He is "considered by many to be the father of chemistry.
abir Ibn Hayyan is widely credited with the introduction of the experimental
method in alchemy, and with the invention of numerous important processes still
used in modern chemistry today, such as the syntheses of hydrochloric and
nitric acids, distillation, and crystallisation. His original works are highly
esoteric and probably coded, though nobody today knows what the code is. On the
surface, his alchemical career revolved around an elaborate chemical numerology
based on consonants in the Arabic names of substances and the concept of
takwin, the artificial creation of life in the alchemical laboratory. Research
has also established that oldest text of Jabiran corpus must have originated in
the scientific culture of northeastern Persia. This thesis is supported by the
Persian language and Middle Persian terms used in the technical vocabulary.

The most significant aspect of al-Jazari's machines are the mechanisms, components,
ideas, methods and design features which they employ.

Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Kathīr al-Farghānī
He was involved in the measurement of the diameter of the Earth together with a
team of scientists under the patronage of al-Ma'mūn in Baghdad.
The Alfraganus crater on the Moon was named after him.

Muhammad ibn Zakarīya Rāzi
Razi made fundamental and enduring contributions to the fields of medicine,
alchemy, and philosophy, recorded in over 184 books and articles in various
fields of science. He was well-versed in Persian, Greek and Indian medical
knowledge and made numerous advances in medicine through own observations and
discoveries.] He was an early proponent of experimental medicine and is
considered the father of pediatrics
. He was also a pioneer of
neurosurgery and ophthalmology.

Abū Rayhān al-Bīrūnī
physicist, an anthropologist and psychologist, an astronomer, a chemist, a
critic of alchemy and astrology, an encyclopedist and historian, a geographer
and traveller, a geodesist and geologist, a mathematician, a pharmacist and
physician, an Islamic philosopher and Shia theologian, and a scholar and
teacher, and he contributed greatly to all of these fields.

He was the first scholar to study India and the Brahminical tradition, and has
been described as the father of Indology, the father of geodesy, and
"the first anthropologist". He was also one of the earliest leading
exponents of the experimental scientific method, and was responsible for
introducing the experimental method into mechanics, the first to conduct
elaborate experiments related to astronomical phenomena, and a pioneer of
experimental psychology.

George Sarton, the father of the history of science, described Biruni as
"One of the very greatest scientists of Islam, and, all considered, one of
the greatest of all times.

Robert E. Hall wrote the following on al-Khazini:

"His hydrostatic balance can leave no doubt that as a maker of scientific
instruments he is among the greatest of any time."

Ibn al-Haytham
HE made significant contributions to the principles of optics, as well as to
anatomy, astronomy, engineering, mathematics, medicine, ophthalmology,
philosophy, physics, psychology, visual perception, and to science in general
with his introduction of the scientific method.

Ibn al-Haytham is regarded as the "father of modern optics" for
his influential Book of Optics, which correctly explained and proved the modern
intromission theory of vision, and for his experiments on optics, including
experiments on lenses, mirrors, refraction, reflection, and the dispersion of
light into its constituent colours. He studied binocular vision and the moon
illusion, described the finite speed[] and rectilinear propagation of light and
and argued that rays of light are streams of corpuscular energy
particles[16]travelling in straight lines.] Due to his formulation of a modern
quantitative, empirical and experimental approach to physics and science, he is
considered the pioneer of the modern scientific method and the originator of
experimental science and experimental physics, and some have described him as
the "first scientist" for these reasons.

He is also considered by some to be the founder of experimental psychology
for his experimental approach to the psychology of visual perception and
optical illusions, and a pioneer of the philosophical field of phenomenology.

Among his other achievements, Ibn al-Haytham gave the first clear
description and correct analysis of the camera obscura, discovered Fermat's
principle of least time and the concept of inertia
(Newton's first law of
motion), discovered that the heavenly bodies were accountable to the laws of
, presented a critique and reform of Ptolemaic astronomy, first
stated Wilson's theorem in number theory, formulated and solved Alhazen's
problem geometrically using early ideas related to calculus and mathematical
induction,and in his optical research laid the foundations for the later
development of telescopic astronomy,[34] as well as for the microscope and the
use of optical aids in Renaissance art

also known by the Latinized version of his name Alkindus to the West, was an
Arabpolymath: a philosopher, scientist, astrologer, astronomer, cosmologist,
chemist, logician, mathematician, musician, physician, physicist, psychologist,
and meteorologist.
In the field of mathematics, al-Kindi played an important role in introducing
Indian numerals to the Islamic and Christian world. He was a pioneer in
cryptanalysis and cryptology, and devised several new methods of breaking
ciphers, including the frequency analysis method.] Using his mathematical and
medical expertise, he was able to develop a scale that would allow doctors to
quantify the potency of their medication.

Ibn Sahl

Abu Sa`d al-`Ala' ibn Sahl) (c. 940-1000) was an Arabian mathematician,
physicist and optics engineer associated with the Abbasid court of Baghdad.
About 984 he wrote a treatise On Burning Mirrors and Lenses in which he set out
his understanding of how curved mirrors and lenses bend and focus light. Ibn
Sahl is credited with first discovering the law of refraction, usually called
Snell's law.[1][2] He used the law of refraction to work out the shapes of
lenses that focus light with no geometric aberrations, known as anaclastic

known as Algazel to the western medieval world, was born and died in Tus, in
the Khorasan province of Persia (modern day Iran). He was a Muslim theologian,
jurist, philosopher, physician, psychologist and mystic of Persian origin], and
remains one of the most celebrated scholars in the history of Sufi Islamic
thought. He is considered a pioneer of the methods of doubt and skepticism, and
in one of his major works, The Incoherence of the Philosophers, he changed the
course of early Islamic philosophy, shifting it away from the influence of
ancient Greek and Hellenistic philosophy, and towards cause-and-effect that
were determined by God or intermediate angels.
