Islam Under Scrutiny by Ex-Muslims

Islamic Cell Phone and the Next Islamic Invention

The newest Islamic stuff in the market is the Islamic Cell Phone marketed by a company in Bangladesh . The New Age of Dhaka reported: The cell phone has full text of the holy Qur’an with English translation, prayer call (azan), prayer alarm before and after azan, automatic Qibla directions and Ramadan calendar. I could not help but had a good chuckle when I read the above news. Suddenly, I recalled ‘Dalil’, the Islamic digital watch (of course, invented and marketed by the infidels) that was launched in early eighties when the craze of digital time-piece was raging. This Islamic digital watch displayed prayer times, Ramadan fasting calendar with times and the direction of Qibla. Many Muslims bought this gadget to acquire bonus rewards from Allah; but guess who pocketed the money? Yes, it was the infidels who took the lion’s share of the profit. I am not quite sure if that Islamic digital watch (or its enhanced version) is still being marketed or not. Lately, in an attempt to maul the soft-drink giant Coca-Cola, Islamic soft drink, such as Mecca Cola is being marketed vigorously in Muslim countries as well as in some infidel countries where sizeable number of Muslims reside. I am not sure how successful the Islamic soft-drink has been in demolishing the Coca-Cola giant.  
Here is a list of fifty items---I believe, sooner or later, will be claimed by the Islamists as their own inventions. The list is not itemized on the basis of subject/product---it is a random list---I listed them as they came to my mind. Peruse the list and add more to make it a century.

40 years ago I worked with an educated Syrian Muslim with several degrees from French universities.In spite of his education he believed all the major inventions had really been invented by Muslims and their research had been stolen from under their noses by people like Marconi, Bell, Edison etc.He even claimed that Sheakspeare was a Muslim who was really called Shaykh Sepir. Naturally I disputed his claims, so one day he brought to work a thick book, in Arabic of course,where he had got his ideas.Nothing I said could convince him that he was wrong. According to him and his book, the infidels had never invented anything worthwhile.

Casper:Actually I run into many educated muslims in this country who believe exactly the same. Just two weeks back I ran into a muslim engineer in New Jersey who believed the same. Actually the divide is clear. Most very religious practising muslims believe in anti american conspiracy theories and also that infidels stole muslim ideas for most inventions. They support this belief saying that since all knowledge is in Quran, it is natural that quran reading muslims have to be the first ones to come up with the new ideas.

Islam wants to take credit for all inventions, scientific advance, technological marvels, infact all the goodies of the world, supposed to have already been there in the barbaric quran! The muslims are a bunch of utterly brazen, shameless crooks like their murderous, rapacious, plundering and maraudering bedouin ancestors, willing to rob lock,stock and barrel of others' wealth without a conscience! You can't expect anything better from these uncivilized and barbaric people!!!

Why are you all upset with Muslims bragging about their great ancient civilizations? I mean this issue might be controversial but maybe they the Muslims have to feel good about their past since they do not have new inventions in our time, except the Muslim brilliant minds escaping to the West because of government corruption. We should not be upset with them when they talk so proudly about their past, we should condolence them instead. Isn’t better than Muslims investing and competing with the west and then they will have both the ideology and the technology. Israel will then for sure disappear from the map.

Abu Ali al-Husayn Ibn Abdullah Ibn Sina was born in Bukhara in 980. Sometimes known in the West by the Latin name, Avicenna, this Persian physician became the most famous and influential of all the Islamic philosopher-scientists. He earned royal favour for treating the Kings of Bukhara and Hamadan for ailments other physicians could neither diagnose nor cure. His grave is still maintained in Hamadan, where he died in 1037. Though trained as a physician, Ibn Sina made important contributions to philosophy, mathematics, chemistry, and astronomy. His philosophical encyclopedia, Kitab al-Shifa ("Book of Healing") brought Aristotelian and Platonian philosophy together with Islamic theology in dividing the field of knowledge into theoretical knowledge (physics, mathematics, and metaphysics) and practical knowledge (ethics, economics, and politics). His most enduring legacy, however, was in the field of medicine. His most famous book, Al-Qanun fi al-Tibb ("The Canon of Medicine") is still one of the most important medical books ever written, and served as the medical authority throughout Europe for 600 years. Among the Canon's contributions to modern medicine was the recognition that tuberculosis is contagious; diseases can spread through water and soil; and a person's emotional health influences his or her physical health. Ibn Sina was also the first physician to describe meningitis, parts of the eye, and the heart valves, and he found that nerves were responsible for perceived muscle pain. He also contributed to advancements in anatomy, gynecology, and pediatrics. The Canon was translated into Latin in the 12th century, and quickly became the predominant textbook used in European medical schools until the 17th century. It is still used today in Islamic medical schools in Pakistan and India. No other medical book has remained so highly acclaimed for such a long period of time. When the Arabic original was published in Rome in 1593, it became one of the first Arabic books to be produced on the new invention of the printing press. Today, Ibn Sina's portrait hangs in the main hall of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Paris.

Ibn Sina also believe that reason and philosophy are greater than revelation (Quran) and urged to bring the Quranic messages in conformity with reason. Indeed, two greatest Muslim scholars -- Ibn Sina and al-Farabi -- both considered writings of great philosophers of ancient Greece, particularly of Aristotle, as the revealed truth, according to Aligarh Prof Umaruddin's 'The Ethical Philosophy of al-Ghazzali'.

Name: Two more inventions of Islam to add to your list

You forgot to mention other important inventions of Islam. (1) MLM = Multi Level Marketing. In MLM one crook catches hold of an idiot with some money and brain-washes him by giving great calculations of profit only if he could catch more and more idiots and make sell them the plan, further down the line. One who enters into MLM trick, ever remain engaged into making more and more customers. Same thing with Islam. The only difference is that in MLM business atleast everybody is getting something. But in Islam which promises Jannat and Houries after death, will never be realized. (2) Today's advertizers say : Sex sells. In fact this advertizement theory was invented by Islam. To join Islam, fools are still being told that they will get 72 houries to fornicate, but only if they kill kafirs.

Physics (the founder of experimental physics was Alhazen in 1021). 17. Chemistry (The 8th-century chemist Jabir/Geber is considered the father of chemistry). 18. Gravity (Muhammad ibn Musa hypothesized that gravity is due to attraction between masses in the 9th century, and Al-Khazini hypothesized that gravity varies depending on distance in 1121). 19. Relativity (the concept of motion being relative was proposed by Abu'l-Barakat al-Baghdadi in the 12th century). 20. Electricity (Abbas ibn Firnas produced artificial thunder and lightning in his laboratory in the 9th century). 21. Flood (Avicenna accurately described the role of floods in the formation of mountains in 1027). 22. Psychiatry (The first psychiatric hospital was built in Baghdad in the 8th century). 23.

Toothbrush (the Miswak is still just as effective as modern toothbrushes). 35. Toothpaste (Ziryab invented a toothpaste that was both functional and pleasant to taste in the 9th century). 36. Soap (all modern soaps are Islamic soaps, which were invented by Muslim chemists in the 10th century). 38. Mountains (the formation of mountains was first accurately described by Avicenna in 1027 and the concept of continental drift dates back to Biruni in the 11th century). 39. Aircraft (the first artificially-powered aircraft was the gunpowder-powered rocket aircraft invented by Lagari Hasan Celebi in 1633). 40.

Gynaecology (female surgeons were employed to deal with gynaecology, but male surgeons were allowed by medieval Islamic jurists if the condition was critical). 45.
