Beside the historical triumphs of Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi over fanatic crusaders, the distinguished Muslim Contribution in the sphere of Mathematics, Architecture, Geography, Agriculture, Medicine and Astronomy to distant Europen countries is a great reality and a remarkable event of ancient Western history.
And that is the main subject of this valuable book, a brief sketch but a bulk of information, such as, cultivation and gathering of knowledge under the patronage of Khilafat and transmission of Muslim learning to Christian Europe through various channels including translation from Arabic to Latin to their vernacular languages etc.
Last but not least, it should not be, merely, a lovely story of golden past but a sort of treasure to rejuvenate the characteristic of Muslim Ummah.
