Historically: Mathematics, Astronomy, Medicine and Philosophy

Regardless of theology the Islamic world had historically been a bridge of knowledge between the Ancient World and the European Renaissance that eventually gave rise to modern science and the modern world. This process began under the Umayyad Caliphate of 7-8th Century and flourished under the Abbasid Caliphate until the sacking of Baghdad in 1258 by the Mongols. During these Caliphates knowledge was absorbed from the Byzantine and Persian empires and from the borders with China, India and Europe during this “Golden Age of Islam”. The Persian customs of artistic and scholarly patronage was adopted by the Abbasids and culture, science, philosophy and innovation prospered.

The last in line of Abrahamic Religions

Islam is a religion that links all the Abrahamic religious traditions of the Middle East. As a result all these religions share the concept of one god, a belief in angels, a belief in prophets or messengers from god, a belief in resurrection and a day of Judgement. Islam sites numerous figures as the prophets or messengers of Islam and in this way united the traditions of all three religions naming, not only Mohammed but Jesus, Moses, Noah, Abraham, Adam and many more as gods messengers.
