1001 Inventions by Muslims
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - 1001 Inventions is an award-winning international educational project dedicated to the history of science and technology in Muslim civilization during the period known as the Golden Age (600 – 1600 A.D.).
The project encompasses online and traditional publishing, films and both static and traveling exhibitions. The 1001 Inventions project was created by the Manchester-based non-profit Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilization, chaired by Professor Salim Al-Hassani.
1001 Inventions was launched in 2006 with a traveling exhibition at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry and an accompanying hardback book.
Medicine, mechanics, design, chemistry, education, engineering, architecture, and astronomy were some sciences that Muslims had been pioneering.
The book is composed of eight parts: 'house', 'school;, 'bazaar', 'hospital', 'city', 'environment', 'world' and 'reference' make different parts of this book.
The House familiarizes the readers with the origin of consumptive materials, such as who used perfumes for the first time, or what home entertainments were prevalent in the mid centuries. 'School' introduces the first universities of the world in Baghdad where people with various nationalities and religions studied together.
'Bazaar' traces the origin of international commerce back to the mid centuries and Muslim techniques of agriculture and gardening. A thousand years ago developed surgery by means of delicate surgical tools were made in Islamic hospitals. And the ‘city’ familiarizes the readers with well-lighted and paved streets of Muslims and explains the ideas of great architects of that era.
The ‘environment’ introduces the first expounders of tide, and the initiating explorers of mines, oceans and mountains based on developed maps and mapping tools.
