Muslims believe that knowledge is a gift from Allah (God) and a sign of His mercy to mankind. The Prophet Muhammad said: "Seek knowledge, even in China."
During the fourteen centuries since the lifetime of the Prophet, Islam has spread to all parts of the world along with the knowledge of Muslims. Although these seismic expansions have been occurring for hundreds of years, the contribution that learned Muslims have made to the advancement of science has not always been acknowledged.
