‘Islamic Civilization’ - The Biggest Lie Known to Mankind

I can say with confidence that the only civilization attributed to
religion is the so-called “Islamic civilization”. Other civilizations
do not base themselves on religion. We do not hear about the
“Christian civilization”, the “Jewish civilization” or the “Buddhist
When I was a student in the Arab schools, I studied a curriculum
module or unit called 'Islamic civilization' which was taught by a
Salafist Imam. His whole curriculum was a biography of the Salafists
“Ahlu Sunna” group; a group that wants to follow the works of
Muhammad’s times and the early Muslims. All we studied was “so and so
said...” and “the Shari’a tells us to do such and such...” the whole
curricuum was designed for “Islamic brainwashing”. The instructor Imam
never gave a smile in his lectures and taught topics that had no
relation to civilization For me, this class was “the straw that broke
the camel's back” and that led me to go and finish my studies in the
lands of the heathens.
The class that I took with this Imam was no more than an insult to my
intellect. The course was filled with mumbo jumbo about Islam along
with some inherited beliefs about the Jews and the Persians.
Who is the genius who came up with the term "Islamic civilization"?
But wait for a minute ...!
Those who coined the term “Islamic civilization” speak about (at most)
the seven centuries before the Ottoman Empire appeared on the world
stage. We can’t speak about the “Turkish times” since that is the
Turkish time and not the time of the Islamic civilization. I am
talking about the seven centuries where the lands Muslims ruled were
in their “golden age”.
Now, greater civilizations of the past left us witnesses to their
accomplishments. The Romans did. So did the Greeks, the Mayas and the
Chinese. The great Egyptian civilization of old left us the Pyramids –
one of their witnesses to their accomplishments.
Where is the evidence for the Muslims civilization? Is it the Ummayyad
Mosque in Damascus? This was no more than a Christian church that the
Muslims took over and converted to a mosque, just to annoy the
Christians and make their life as uncomfortable as possible.
The old civilizations had their greatest accomplishments in the
proximity of their origins. For Muslims this is the Mecca and Medina
areas. But there are no accomplishments there. All there is is a
pre-Islamic black stone enclosed within a mud cube. There is nothing
worth mentioning in Mecca or Medina. Even in other areas Muslims
accomplished nothing. In the example of Spain, Muslims took over
buildings by force from the original natives, and stayed there,
unwelcome, until the natives had enough power to get rid of the
Muslims. Had not the Muslims been kicked out of Spain, we would have
today Kandahar instead of Marbella and Waziristan rather than Mallorca
and Mogadesho instead of Barcelona.
How beautiful you are, my mind, when you are in the right environment!
Thanks to my studies in the lands of infidels, my mind had a healthy
development and the ability to do critical thinking. In comparison,
education in Muslim areas is just indoctrination.
An example of intellectual theft by Muslims is that they invented the
concept of “zero” without which computers would not have been
This is a lie, the concept of zero came from the Indians. The same
applies to “Arabic” numerals that have their origins in Babylonia.
What Muslims like to teach and brag about are half-truths.
Muslims claim they translated the Greek works of Socrates, Arstotle,
etc. and that without the Muslims' translations such origins of
European civilization would have been lost.
This is not quite accurate.
True, the translations were made in lands dominated by Muslims, such
as Iraq and the Levant. But it wasn’t the Muslims who did the
translation. It was Assyrian Christians. At that time the Khalif was
forgiving and did not follow Islam (philosophy and logic are
considered heresy in Islam) but fortunately the Sultan was a heretic
and allowed to these translations to be made.
The exact term is “Islamic primitivism”
The Islamic religion is an invasive Arab culture that seeks to
destroy, and destroyed, the cultures of native peoples. The only
reason that the Giza Pyramids in Egypt are still standing is that when
Muslims took over Egypt and ruled over the native Copts the Muslims
did not have knowledge about bombs and explosives at the time and so
could not destroy them.
This was not the case with the giant Buddha statues in Afghanistan,
which are 2,500 years old. When Muslims learned to use explosives,
they destroyed it while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is greatest).
The civilized world watched their TVs in horror as this spectacle was
In India, three thousand Hindu temples were converted to mosques, and
the consequences of such actions still exist today:
Natives of the Indian sub-continent lived together in harmony until
The Muslims showed up on the scene and viciously converted temples
into mosques. Along with the Muslims, war came to India and this
ultimately led to the division of India into two states: one is the
world's largest democracy (modern India) and the second is the world's
largest shelter for Muslim terrorists (Pakistan).
Islam and Medicine
Nowadays one is nauseated and gets migraine (headache) from all that
Islamic bragging about the contributions of Islam to Medicine during
its “golden age”. This is nonsense.
During the Abbasid dynasty, The Khalif (Sultan) did not follow Islam.
He was, rather, a good drinker of alcohol and spent his time attending
to pretty maids.
In fact it was the apostacy of some Abbasid rulers that allowed
translation of non-Islamic works, the development of knowledge and a
movement to establish the rule of the intellect over Islam to thrive.
As for Medicine, it the Christian Assyrians who led the field. Muslims
try to take credit for that to deceive the world. Some of those
Christians were “Islamized” either through poverty or the sword.
“Jizya” was a heavy tax and an Islamic protection racket. It is no
wonder that some of those Christians were “Islamized”. In our days,
this is seen as no more than a Mafia style operation. And, by the way,
this is what is happening nowadays in Egypt. A Coptic boy may declare
he is a Muslim to be able to marry a Muslim girl he loves. Later, he
may regret what he did, but then it is too late. The court system will
not allow him to go back to his Christian faith.
Forced Islamization of scientists
Muslims boast about Al-Razi (Persian), and Ibn Sina (Persian) and
Al-Bironi (Persian), and Abu Hamid al-Ghazali (Persian) and Al-Farabi
(what is now Kazakhstan) and Al-Khuwarizmi (what is now Uzbekistan),
and Al-Bukhari, Al-Tirmidhi, and Al-Sijistani, Bashar ibn Burd, Abu
Nawas, Abu Hanifa, Taftazani, and Abu Faraj Isfahani, and Ibn
Al-Roumi, and Ibn Bakhtaishou’, and Haneen ibn Ishaq, and Al-Rumi,
etc. .. etc. .. Muslims brag about those as if they were the cousins
of Prophet Muhammad, or as if they were descendants of the Quraish
tribe. Those people were not even Arabs. What happened is that the
Arab Muslim invaders went into other societies, and did two things:
One was destroy the culture and sciences of the natives, the second
was to Islamize what they could by the sword (or the power of taxes
through Jizya and other means). Do you get the picture?
The true inheritance of the lie called “Islamic Civilization” exists
in one place and only in one place: The Qur’an. Nothing else is
Islamic civilization. What the Muslims did is destroy other
civilizations that existed before them. They, the Muslims, had the
goal of erasing the original identity of such societies. They replaced
man’s intellect with the Qur’an; a book that has stories about
Christians and Jews in its first half and calls for cursing them,
destroying them and killing them in the second half - in addition to
elevating the status of Muhammad.
That is all that Islamic civilization contributed to the world. So,
one cannot help but laugh when the words “Islamic Civilization” are
