The center of technical information and activity moved towards the east which resulted in Baghdad emerging as the capitol of the scientific world. The Muslims were now scientific innovators with inventiveness and efficiency. This can be asserted by the fact that Islamic medicine is perhaps one of the most eminent and best known features of the civilization of Islam, and this is a field in which the Muslims progressed the most. In the words of the prophet of Islam, Muhammad, “if anyone travels on a road in search of knowledge, Allah will cause him to travel on one of the roads of Paradise.
The angels will lower their wings in their great pleasure with one who seeks knowledge, the inhabitants of the heavens and the Earth and the fish in the deep waters will ask forgiveness for the learned man. The superiority of the learned man over the devout is like that of the moon, on the night when it is full, over the rest of the stars. The learned are the heirs of the Prophets and the Prophets leave neither dinar nor dirham, leaving only knowledge, and he who takes it takes an abundant portion” (Men and Women have the Right to Seek Education in Islam, p.1). A noticeable fact here is that knowledge and education does not only mean religious education, but it is a term that is very complex. Islam allows its followers to receive worldly education as well. The prophet of the Muslims, Muhammad told them to acquire knowledge even if they have to go to China and knowledge should be acquired from anyone and everyone who is knowledgeable. Here it is understandable that China in those days was definitely not the hub of theological knowledge, but it was then well-known for its business. What is more, is the fact that a person can not expect to receive religious education (Islamic in particular) from atheists or polytheists.
