It was a Muslim who realized that light ENTERS our eyes, unlike the Greeks who thought we EMITTED rays, and so invented a camera from this discovery.
It was a Muslim who first tried to FLY in 852, even though it is the Wright Brothers who have taken the credit.
It was a Muslim by the name of Jabir ibn Hayyan who was known as the founder of modern Chemistry. He transformed alchemy into chemistry. He invented: distillation, purification, oxidation, evaporation, and filtration. He also discovered sulfuric and nitric acid.
It is a Muslim, by the name of Al-Jazari who is known as the father of robotics.
It was a Muslim who was the architect for Henry V’s castle.
It was a Muslim who invented hollow needles to suck cataracts from eyes, a technique still used today.
It was a Muslim who actually discovered inoculation, not Jenner and Pasteur to treat cowpox. The West just brought it over from Turkey
It was Muslims who contributed much to mathematics like Algebra and Trigonometry, which was imported over to Europe 300 years later to Fibonnaci and the rest.
It was Muslims who discovered that the Earth was round 500 years before Galileo did.
The list goes on………..
Just imagine a world without Muslims. Now I think you probably meant, JUST IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT TERRORISTS. And then I would agree, the world would definitely be a better place without those pieces of filth. But to hold a whole group responsible for the actions of a few is ignorant and racist. No one would ever expect Christians or White people to be held responsible for the acts of Timothy McVeigh (Oklahoma bombing) or Andreas Brevik (Norway killing), or the gun man that shot Congresswoman Giffords in head, wounded 12 and killed 6 people, and rightly so because they had nothing to do with those incidents! Just like the rest of the 1.5 billion Muslims have nothing to do with this incident!

 Forever reblog.

You know the funny thing is, it seems POC have contributed more to society and civilization than white people ever will. All they seem to do is erase the ethnicity and name and put their stamp on. 

white people would claim they invented the sun if they could

This is such an amazing tag however very hard; how could I possibly choose one of many beautiful verses.
He said : Do not fear- I am with you, All hearing and All seeing (Surah Ta’ha 20:46)
I read Surah Ta’ha a couple years ago when I was at my lowest point in life, and I choked and cried when I read this verse. Indeed Allah (swt) is the All hearing and All seeing, even when you believe you are alone, have faith because Allah (swt) is always with you.
I was tagged by these beautiful souls : xo-lovepalestine  bethechangeyouwishtoosee thelonehijabi raneemwillshine bucketofsweetnesspath-to-piety falastinianheart
I tag : Everyone, I really want everyone to do this. Do this tag and tag me in it because I want to know your favorite verses :)

This is the surah I always listen to while studying.  The verses are beautiful, and Sheikh Ghamidis voice reciting it, BEAUTIFUL

ummatii:

An honest friendship is one in which even after weeks of not speaking, things are still the same whenever you choose to speak. I don’t see the obsession with talking to people every single day online or over text just to call yourselves friends. If you don’t talk to me for a while, I’m not going to assume you don’t want to be friends.


No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful.
- Eleanor Roosevelt (via aestheticintrovert)

Life is a temporary loan, and this world is nothing but a sketchy imitation of Reality. Only children would mistake a toy for the real thing. And yet human beings either become infatuated with the toy or disrespectfully break it and throw it aside. In this life stay away from all kinds of extremities, for they will destroy your inner balance. - Shams Tabrizi
