Many philosophers depict Al-Farabi as originator of Islamic philosophy because he established logic within Islamic culture. Every Islamic philosopher is Al-Farabi's students and created and details his philosophy. Al-Fārābī's philosophical intuition was sustained in the heritage of the Arabic Aristotelian teachings of tenth century Baghdad. His extraordinary administration of Islam was to take the Greek legacy, and show how it could be utilized to answer questions with which Muslims were battling. The real piece of al-Fārābī’s works was coordinated to the issue of the right ordering of the state.
Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Hanbal Al-Shaibani, better known as Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal was one such person who could say that they fulfill these categories. His life and his achievements are the very example of amazing. Though he only lived approximately 75 years, he achieved more than what most people achieve in their lifetimes. Ahmad Ibn Hanbal was born in 164 AH or 781 CE in the city of Baghdad. Baghdad, at this time was the capital of the Abbasid Caliphate and was fast becoming a center of scholarship and learning.
Also, people were divided into various tribes based on blood and kinship. In Islam, a single, unified community called the Ummah was established and wrought away the remaining tribes. This also brought change to people’s former cultural tradition and beliefs. As you can see, life in Arabia and Africa changed heavily due to the spread of
In searching for the exact birth date of Abū Ḥāmid Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad Al-Ghazālī, some scholars agreed that Al-Ghazzali was born in 450 AH such as Ibn al-Jawzi ,Yaqut, Ibn Khallikkan, while other sources indicated that the time of his birth was in 448 AH which is more likely due to relevant evidence. However that won’t raise a significant effect, since by the time he was born in Tabran education was of common interest among Muslims specially his father. After his death, Al Ghazzali spent his father’s inheritance for educational purposes. After his inheritance came to an end, he joined a charity school for Sheikh Ahmad b. Muhammad Razakani, where he studied fiqh; later on, he studied in another school for Imam Abu Nasr Isma`ili in Jurjuran.
For many Muslims, experience and intuition work hand in hand, along with the logic that helps them in arriving at the Islamic faith. According to Parrot (n.p. ), Islam believes in the existence of God in many ways. One is that Muslims believe that God or Allah holds a higher power and that no one on this planet should know that his lord is Allah. Additionally, Islamic religion would respond to the atheists ' claim that the idea of God is
Opposition to Secular Ideology Imam Khomeini had very harsh objections against the secular ideology since he resented the separation of the State from religion, making it far superior than Islam. Not only did this divide make the State a legitimate source of power, it also made the State, a focus of allegiance. This trumped his ideas of establishing Islam as the way forward for the people of Iran. However, the Imam had no objections to nationalism, in the sense of patriotism, since it did contribute to creating an atmosphere of loyalty among the people. In addition to ensuring that the country followed Islam as a political tool, Khomeini wanted Islamic awakening among the Muslim-dominated nations and develop close economic, political, and cultural ties among them.
Allah the one god of the Islamic faith is looked upon by each Muslim. Each Muslim has a personal relationship with god. One example of how dedicated each Muslim is to Allah occurred when artists were painting living things. Since Allah is the creator of all life, it became prohibited to illustrate living beings, and this is how calligraphy was created. This shows how dedicated Muslims are to their god.
The Abbasid dynasty was the third Islamic caliphate after the rightly guided caliphs and the Umayyad. They ruled for five centuries, where they flourished, and made their capital city, Baghdad, a minaret of knowledge and development. In my paper I will be talking about the fields that the Muslims at that time excelled in, such as science, technology, philosophy, and arts, then I will mention how they influenced the western culture and got influenced by them as well. The Abbasid dynasty became influential after building the house of wisdom, which was not only considered as a library, but as a research and intellectual center that attracted many scientists from different regions, religions, and backgrounds to go there and acquire knowledge.

Introduction History of Islam is intertwined with the Karbala event. The story of the braveries and sacrifices of a small group of people in defense of their belief was broader than the scope of history and it unavoidably turned to a myth. Numerous articles and books are written in description and explanation of the reasons of this event. According to the evidences and the words of Imam Hossein (peace be upon him) can be summarized as follows: Reforming social affairs: Imam Hossein addresses Hor and his disciples in the followings words: “O’ People! The Prophet of Allah has stated that anyone who sees a cruel ruler who declars the unlawfuls of God lawful and breaks the divine covenant and behaves against the prophetic traditions and acts sinfully among the believers and oppresses them and does not criticize him through certain actions or words; God has promised to take him to the hell.
On the contrary, brutal terrorism (i.e. murder of innocent people) in Islam is a great sin, and Muslims are directed for avoiding these acts and bringing peace and justice to the world . A message has been communicated to the west by Extremism in the name of Islam as Islam is practiced by the "Radical" fundamentalists that are leading the religion, who discourage the pursuit of knowledge beyond itself and that can be seen by their attitude toward other religions and cultures especially Western Culture. It is also propagated that for Muslims, Islam is the only true religion and all other religions are declared as false. It is also strongly propagated that Islam is at war with the rest of world for planetary control and
