The translation of texts into Arabic

translation of texts into Arabic affect learning greatly, and the evidence can be seen over the years, one great example is the Golden age of Islam.

The importance of translating texts into Arabic.

During the golden age of Islam, the Abbasid Caliphs Harun al-Rashid and his son al-Ma’mun encouraged the translation movement of Greek and Indian works into Arabic.

Because of this encouragement, most of the Greek and Indian works in All fields including medicine, mathematics, and science are translated into Arabic. Which lead to the thriving of innovation in all fields and for the Islamic empire to become a powerful empire. People from all around the world came to the Islamic empire to gain knowledge.

The Abbasid Caliphs Harun al-Rashid and his son al-Ma’mun build the library of knowledge. All the knowledge needed can be found in all kinds of fields. Scholars translated philosophy, science, and medical texts. The Abbasid Caliphs Harun al-Rashid and his son al-Ma’mun wanted to excel in the field of medicine by accessing the library of knowledge.

Through the translated text of Greek and Indian works, Muslim doctors managed to acquire the knowledge they need. They increased their medical knowledge and built hospitals. During the golden age of Islam, there was amazing innovation in the medical field.

Most of the tools that are used now in surgeries were invented in that era. Tools like forceps, scalpels, and catgut for stitching wounds. They were invented by a famous surgent called al-Zahrawi. That’s not the only thing he did. He also wrote a manual on medical practices of 1500 pages.

During the golden age of Islam, there were all kinds of Islamic books of knowledge for learners and students to find all they need. Due to the Arabic translation of Greek and Indian works.

During that time, they made English Translation Quran, so that non-Arabic Muslims can read it easily and understand its verses. Among the best books for English translation of Quran is “The Clear Quran”.

There was a thrive in all fields, medicine, art, commerce, engineering, education, and science and all of this was thanks to translating texts into Arabic. So, I think I can imagine now how important is to translate texts.
