Our knowledge of science today is built upon thousands of years of work accumulated throughout ancient civilizations.
This is especially important in the 21st century, where challenges are not confined to a single nation or region. As we aim to address global challenges, we realise they necessitate collective solutions. Science plays a pivotal role in improving living conditions and catering to social needs, from food security and health to energy sufficiency, supporting the path towards sustainable development.
The legacy of the remarkable polymath demonstrates how knowledge was developed through the ages and across civilisations.
This was the height of the Golden Age of Muslim Civilisation — a creative era that spanned a thousand years from the 7th century onwards, from Spain to China, bringing forth many far-reaching advances in science, technology and medicine by men and women of different faiths and cultures.
Building upon knowledge of ancient civilisations, their contributions added significant and crucial value to the accumulation of scientific knowledge shaping our homes, schools, hospitals, towns and the way we trade, travel and understand the universe today.
He greatly benefited from being able to use the direct translation of many scientific works from Greek, Syriac and Persian thinkers, who in their turn were the heirs to the great scientific traditions of Ancient Egypt, Babylonia, India and China.
Ibn al-Haytham based his theories on the work of the Greek physician Galen , who had provided a detailed description of the eye and the optic pathways. However, Ibn al-Haytham subscribed to a method of empirical analysis to accompany theoretical postulates that is similar in certain ways to the scientific method we know today.
Realizing that the senses were prone to error, he devised methods of verification, testing and experimentation to uncover the truth of the natural phenomena he examined. Up until this time, the study of physical phenomena had been an abstract activity with occasional experiments.
Ultimately, he was equally recognized for his approach to experimentation as for his discoveries. George Saliba , Professor of Arabic Science at the Department of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures at Columbia University, said: Ibn al-Haytham is universally acknowledged to be one of, if not, the most creative scientist Islamic civilization had ever known. He did not only critique the inherited Greek theories of light and vision, in his Book On Optics, and managed to create his own experimentally tested theories to replace them, thereby ushering the first building blocks for the modern understanding of how human vision takes place, but also subjected Greek cosmological doctrines in his other book, Doubts Against Ptolemy, to a most devastating criticism that managed to undermine the very foundations of those doctrines, thereby initiating a sustained program of research to replace them; a program that lasted for centuries after him and culminated with the ultimate overthrow of the Aristotelian universe and the birth of the modern astronomy of the European Renaissance.
Why his influence lingers Today, the oldest-known drawing of the nervous system is from Ibn al-Haytham's Book of Optics, in which the eyes and optic nerves are illustrated. Both his optical discoveries, and the fact that they had been validated using hands-on experiments, would influence those who came after him for centuries. So how did that influence shine its light on subsequent generations?
In the early 12th century, the Spanish town of Toledo was the focus of a huge effort to translate Arabic books into Latin. Christian, Jewish and Muslim scholars flocked there, where they lived alongside one another and worked together to translate the old knowledge into Latin and then into other European languages.

The book is based on the belief that humankind can best move forward when people from all countries, cultures, and spiritual views work together. Each two-page themed spread is filled with facts that showcase the innovations by men and women of many faiths who lived during the Golden Age of Muslim civilization.
Many of the facts lend themselves to further exploration through research projects, activities, web searches, and more.
This guide provides questions, key Internet sites, and suggestions for such activities and creative programs. It also offers a wide range of approaches and options to utilize in the middle-school classroom. Whether the focus is science, social studies, or the arts, teachers can find ways to expand the curriculum with this book and this supplement.
Each project is identified with the pages or subject in the book on which it is based, so students can work individually or in groups on several projects at the same time. Perhaps there is a discoveries discoveries thatthat changed changed thethe world.

Set a goal of 25 facts per student. As you come to the end of your classwork with Inventions, ask each student to select two facts and prepare a brief presentation to the class about why he or she found these particular bits of information so compelling. These facts can be placed on tags and hung up around the room or on a bulletin board.
