Antiquity was an age of superstition; today, we are in the age of science. Before reaching its present day zenith, the modern, scientific age had to pass through three stages. The first was marked by the eradication of the superstitious mentality; the second saw the practical beginnings of scientific research; the third is the spectacular culmination of the scientific process in the second half of the twentieth century. The present book by Maulana Wahiduddin Khan examines the contribution made to the completion of the first two stages by Islam throughout its first millenium. Henri Pirenne has acknowledged this as a historical fact: “Islam changed the face of the globe. The traditional order of history was overthrown.” (Henri Pirenne, History of Western Europe) The book examines the aspects of the Islamic revolution and how they were instrumental in creating the modern age.
