Walaupun buku ini khusus untuk anak-anak, namun persembahannya yang penuh warna-warni amat menarik perhatian sesiapa sahaja. Ini buku asas untuk mengenali tokoh-tokoh pencipta Islam dan sumbangan mereka. Antara fakta yang menarik perhatian saya ialah idea penciptaan universiti yang pertama di dunia ialah oleh Fatimah Al-Fihri yang membuka universiti pertama di Fez, Maghribi pada tahun 859 yang kini dikenali sebagai Universiti al-Qarawiyyin.

Melihat buku ini membuat saya terfikir bahawa bangsa ya

Jauh sebelum Wright bersaudara melakukan uji coba terbang, ‘Abbas ibn Firnas, seorang Muslim Spanyol, telah melakukan serangkaian percobaan terbang. Pada tahun 852 misalnya, Ibn Firnas melompat dari Masjid Agung Cordoba menggunakan parasut. Dua puluh tiga tahun kemudian Ibn Firnas kembali melakukan uji coba terbang dengan menggunakan hang glider.

Lain lagi dengan Ziryab, musisi dan penata gaya asal Baghdad. Ia berperan dalam dalam tren mode di dunia Muslim saat pindah ke Cordoba sekitar abad ke-9

Filled with illustrations, photographs, and short facts about Muslim contributions to our world today, including sextants, perfumes made from spices and herbs, and surgical instruments, this excellent nonfiction title is fun to browse while also making readers feel smarter just from learning a fact or two while browsing. I like how it's designed too: Two pages cover similar topics with clever titles and short text snippets; for instance, "25 Brainy Facts about the House of Wisdom" and "75 Rockin ...more

كتاب رائع، رغم اني احب الاختصار لكن تمنيت لو ان الكتاب مفصل اكثر ..
كنت اعلم من قبل ان وقت عصور الظلام في اوروبا كان اكثر وقت تقدم فيه المسلمين ..
ومع ذلك ذُهلت من المعلومات المذكوره في الكتاب ،،
ان الفلكيين المسلمين اعتقدوا بكرويه الارض ودورانها حول محورها وحول الشمس قبل كوبرنيكوس و جاليليو ..
وان فكره التحصين او التطعيم اخترعها طبيب مسلم عندما حقن طفل بمرض الجدري ..
و ان علماء الجعرافيا المسلمين وضعوا خرائط تُظهر امريكا قبل كولومبس ..
وان فكره الانسان الفيتروفي تحدث عنها المسلمين قبل دافينشي .
