This presentation by the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona shows how the Muslim world has related to, influenced, and interacted with other cultures from its beginning and describes the many contributions made by Muslims during the medieval Golden Age of Islam. Although Muslims made major contributions in diverse fields, including medicine, astronomy, clothing, furniture, music, and even cuisine, this presentation will concentrate on art, architecture and mathematics.
