Muslim Spain’s Legacy – Abdullah Hakim Quick (DVD)


Category: Product ID: 74584


Abdullah Hakim Quick, the first American graduate of the Islamic University of Madinah, presents the Muslim contribution to modern civilization and their influence on the world during their 700 year rule in Al-Andulus (present-day Spain). Topics of discussion include the contributions to geography, navigation, astronomy, physics, medicine, chemistry, mathematics and pharmacology as well as the early history of Muslims in the Americas. This survey also analyzes why Muslim Spain declined from its status as a “wonder of the world” to a lost treasure which is lamented to this day. It concludes with a slideshow of photos, taken by Imam Quick himself, that illustrate much of the material covered. Other topics discussed: Islam as a religion of monotheism, Prophet Muhammad’s last sermon, stereotyping, city names with Arabic roots, the Melungeons, Muslim slaves in Brazil, Spanish and Portuguese interaction with Muslim explorers, debunking the myth about Islam spreading by the sword, and the Muslim influence on Europe’s exploration of the new world. (Duration: 1 hour, 58 min) Abdullah Hakim Quick was born in the U.S. and accepted Islam in 1970. He has served as imam, teacher and counselor in Canada, the U.S. and West Indies and has traveled to over 51 countries on research and educational tours.
