What about the great minds of Islamic world, like Zakaria
Razi, Ibn Sina, Ibn Rushd, Khayyam, Ibn Arabbi, Al Muari and many more?
Shouldn’t we thank Islam for rearing these luminaries?
We should thank Islam
for rearing Khomeini, Bin Laden, Umar and Ali. They killed people
inspired by Islam. The thinkers of Islamic world were almost all
apostates. Ibn Sina did not believe in the immortality of the soul and
did not believe in a god that cares about the creation. His concept of
God was very much similar to that of Espinoza. He was attacked
vehemently by Ghazali because of that. But he was a genius who started
to teach medicine at the age of 20. His life was spared because he was
much needed and because in those days we had tolerant governors who were
more secular than religious. Khayyam was obviously an apostate as you
can see from every robai that he composed. Hafiz memorized Quran before
he reached the age of 15. But as you see there is no praise of Muhammad
in his poetries when he became an adult and could think independently.
Only a non-religious humanist would say: “Mei bekhor manbar besoozan,
mardoom aazaari makon.” (Drink
and burn the pulpit but don’t hurt people) This is totally opposite
with Muhammad's instructions who prohibited drinking wine, used
the pulpit and ordered killing the non-believers. Ar Razi spoke
fearlessly against all the religions calling the Prophets disdainfully
“Billy Goats” and liars.
These truths have been kept hidden from us. We have been lied to
constantly. First the Muslims persecuted these apostates and after their
death they credited Islam with their great works and contributions
to science and learning.
reason the Golden Age in the Islamic world became possible was because the
rulers in those days were more secular than religious and they tolerated
the apostasy of the great minds who in turn contributed to science.
