  58. 58. DISCOVERING THE LAWS OF MOTION This fact acknowledged in the whole world and in all scientific references till the beginning of the twentieth century when a group of contemporary physicists, most prominent Professors of Mathematics examined these laws. They checked the accessible body of Islamic manuscripts in this field and came up with the fact that Muslim scientists were the first to discover these laws. Is Isaac Newton laid laws of motion ??? WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  59. 59. All what Newton did was to collect what had been written on these laws and formulated them in a mathematical form. Setting bias and mere theoretical speech aside, the efforts of Muslim scientists are crystal clear. They are recognized in their manuscripts which had been written seven centuries before the birth of Newton. WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  60. 60. THE FIRST LAW OF MOTION Avicenna in his book “Insinuations and Notices” (Isharat wa Tanbihat) identified the same law in his own words “You know if the object is left unaffected by external influence, it remains as it is”. “In the absence of force, a body either is at rest or moves in a straight line with constant speed”. - Newton WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  61. 61. THE SECOND LAW OF MOTION “A body experiencing a force F experiences an acceleration a related to F by F = ma, where m is the mass of the body. Alternatively, force is proportional to the time derivative of momentum”. - Newton “The solidest power transfers fast and takes a short time. The stronger power leads to the faster the power and the shorter the time. If the power does not decrease, the speed does not decrease, either”. “The Considered in Wisdom” (Al-Moatabar fil Hikma). - Hebattullah bin Malaka Al-Baghdadi WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  62. 62. THE THIRD LAW OF MOTION “Every action has a reaction which is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction”. - Newton “In the wrestling arena, everyone has a force practiced against the other. If one of them retreated, this does not mean that his power disappears, but this retreated power still exists, because without it the second one would not need it to influence the first one”. - Hebattullah bin Malaka Al-Baghdadi WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  63. 63. “The circle pulled by two equal forces until it stops in the middle, it is taken for granted that each forces has practiced an action that obstructs the other”. Imam Fakhr El-Din Al-Razi The Eastern Disciplines in Theology and Natural Sciences (Al-Mabaheth Al-Mashrikayyah fi Illm Al-Illaheyyat wa Al-Tabi’yyat) WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  64. 64. "The moving object is encountered by an obstruction, and if this forces remains, this moving object retreats in the opposite direction in the same speed practiced by the first object and according to the power of obstruction” Ibn Al-Hayytham, “The Scenes” WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  65. 65. Muslim Printing Before Gutenberg In 15th century Gutenberg devise a printing press, firstly. but printing itself, that is, making multiple copies of a text by transferring it from one raised surface to other portable surfaces (especially paper) is much older. The Chinese were doing it as early as the 4th century, and the oldest dated printed text known to us is from 868: the Diamond Sutra, a Chinese translation of a Buddhist text now preserved in the British Library[1] WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  66. 66. What is much less well known is that, little more than 100 years later, Arab Muslims were also printing texts, including passages from the Qur'an. They had already embraced the Chinese craft of paper making, developed it and adopted it widely in the Muslim lands [2]. WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  67. 67. Astronomical Clock of Taqi Al-Din Before the 16th century, clocks were considered too inaccurate for measuring celestial movements. Where Ptolemy failed to succeed in, Taqī al-Dīn planned to build an astronomical clock that would measure time with great regularity in fulfillment of the wish of the Sultan at the time. WISD M | ISLAMIC MISSION
  68. 68. Using mathematics, he designed three dials which showed the hours, degrees and minutes. In his clock, he incorporated the use of several escapements, an alarm, the striking trains that sounded at every hour, the visual relationship between the sun and the moon, the different phases of the moon, the devices that indicated the time for prayers and the dials that showed the first day of the Gregorian months.
