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 civilization”.

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 Christians.

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”.
