The Islamic Golden Age is a historical period lasting from c. 750 CE to c. 1257 CE, during which philosophers, scientists and engineers of the Islamic world are credited with a period of contribution to scientific knowledge, cultural arts, civilisation and architecture, both by developing earlier traditions and by a period of relatively rapid and marked innovation. A substantial degree of historic Islamic intellectual innovation occurred in the Islamic Golden age, and it was this which helped to bring Europe out of the dark ages and brought about the resonance (rebirth) of Europe, Islam brought the light back into a world of darkness.
The Prophet (saw) said: “Even the mountains remember Allah. Verily the mountains speak to other mountains and say, ‘Is there someone who has passed by you and is remembering Allah?’ And if one of the mountains says yes, then the other mountain smiles and laughs.” [Sahih Bukhari]
Adding to the amazing effort so far from the C for Charity crew, this week we’d like to introduce Maboba’s Promise into the mix. An Australian non-profit voluntary organisation, Mahboba’s Promise focuses on development projects that will be of long term benefits. Mahboba Rawi, herself a refugee from Afganistan, and now an Australian citizen, applies her will, experience and knowledge of culture and language to work with widows and children in Afghanistan to improve education, offer vocational training and establish them as self sufficient.
Give generously and together let’s help continue Mahboba’s Promise work. Drop your donation into the account below with ‘mahboba’ and we’ll match it. Together let’s help continue Mahboba’s Promise work.
