The Islamic Golden Age is the period in history during which Muslims made significant advances nearly in every field of science known to man. Achievements were made in fields such as medicine, physics, astronomy, chemistry, mathematics, architecture and other existential fields and sciences.

Discover The Golden Age of Islamic Civilization, while western still stuck in the dark age, before they later (Europe) came to study and learn from Islamic Civilization.

According to historians, the thousand years following the introduction of Islam were a kind of Golden Age for Muslim civilizations, when numerous advances were made in science, medicine and mathematics. That period is not very well known -- especially in the West. But an exhibition, entitled "1001 Inventions, the Golden Age of Muslim civilization," aims to change that. After being shown in London, Istanbul and Abu Dhabi, the exhibition has just opened in the American capital, Washington (August 2012).
