Quran Teaching As An Inspiration To Renaissance Of Muslims

It is unimaginably unfortunate that majority of the world sees Islam as a religion behind promotion of illiteracy, warfare, and terrorism, more than anything else. Little do they know that Islam is the religion that set the foundations of Renaissance of Knowledge back in 14th and 15th century A.D, a time referred as the dark ages of Europe and Christianity.

There is a long list of Muslims scientists contributing in almost all the fields of science. The names and the area of expertise of some most prominent of them are mentioned in the lines below:

  • Jabir-bin-Hayan (also famously known as Geber): Chemistry(attributed as the Father of Chemistry)
  • Al-Asmai: Botany, Zoology, Animal Husbandry
  • Amr-ibn-Bahr Al-Jahiz: Zoology, Lexicography
  • Al-Khwarizmi (also known as Algorizm): Geography, Astronomy, Mathematics (Algebra, Algorithm, Calculus)
  • Ibn-e-Ishaq Al-Kindi (Alkindus): Physics, Optics, Philosophy, Medicine, Metallurgy, Mathematics

These are just a few of the most prominent names putting a greatly significant contribution in almost all the fields of science, and their brilliant work shines as a star in their respective fields. This is simply because of the fact that those early people resorted to Quran and Hadith for seeking any kind of guidance they needed, following the commandment of Allah Almighty.

Quran Teaching can be the key to lead Muslims to the same exalted position among nations of the world that they enjoyed during early centuries of Islam. All we need to do is realize the true potential of guidance concealed in Quran, as indicated by many verses from Holy Quran, such as:

Al-Baqara [2:2] This is the book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah.
