Muslim Scholars. This is unbelievable! (Part 2)

I'm back active again on my blog finishing all the drafts that have been left abandoned for quite some time now.
My aim this time is to continue my previous post about the Muslim Scholars back then who did a lot of breakthroughs, especially in Science and Mathematics.

For this entry, I am going to share another three scholars who made a lot of contributions in Science and Mathematics. Their contributions led to what we have and studying today. They contributed a lot to Islam and the whole mankind. This is what we seek for in the Muslim World instead of fighting over power that later becomes an excuse for the Western superpowers like USA and Russia to interfere with national sovereignty. 


His full name was Muhammad Ibn Ahmad Abul-Rayham Al-Biruni. He was born in Haran, Syria in 973AD. His productions exceed 146 titles in more than 20 different disciplines ranging from astronomy to mathematics, mathematical geography, religion, and philosophy. However, a large portion of his works were mathematical-related disciplines which consist of 96 titles. Out of all works that Al-Biruni worked on, only 22 works survived and only 13 works have been published.

Two books of Al-Biruni that can be highlighted here which are Al-Qanun al-Mas'udi (astronomical encyclopedia) and Tahdid (the demarcation of coordinates of cities).

Public Transports Under Construction in Kuala Lumpur

I went to Tokyo, Japan last summer, one of the cities in the world with excellent public transportation systems. Exploring the whole city was very convenient with help from well-integrated railway networks across the metropolitan region.

 In addition to friendly society, the public transports in Tokyo encourage me to revisit the city in the future. The reason is that I can control my budget since travelling by train is not only fast but cheap at the same time. Planning my itinerary for my trip to Tokyo was quick, thanks to their metro systems.

When visiting other countries, I learn from what's good in those countries and try to bring back home those positivities. At the same time, I tend to be so thankful when visiting other less developed countries since we have escaped problems that they are struggling with. These two are some of the inputs I gained when travelling overseas other than their authentic foods. Hiks.

Me being a patriot, migration is the last option for me. Mahatma Gandhi once said, "You must be the change you wish to see in this world". Thus, it is unfair if I am comparing Malaysia with some highly developed countries and migrating there simply because those countries are much better. My principle is that I should work together in making Malaysia even better than those developed countries and avoiding the mistakes done by failed countries. That's it.
