Qayyum Shaikh, 37, an assistant teacher at Social Urdu High School and Junior College of Science, Solapur. The 92 page book was launched by Prof. Dr. N. N Maldar, Vice Chancellor of Solapur University, recently. Shaikh, who has completed his Masters in Science (MSc) and Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) wrote this book in Urdu, to reach out to more readers and he plans to translate it into other languages. He says he has received several requests for translation of the book into other languages and many are ready to even offer help. The author has used many sources in compiling the present book. The book presents brief information of Muslim scientists’ contribution in the fields of mechanical technology, transport technology, gun powder technology, physics, chemistry, botany, zoology and optics. Speaking with TwoCircles.net, Shaikh said, “Today most of us presume that the progress of science and technology is the contribution of Europe and American scientists only. In fact it is our lack of knowledge. The truth is that hundreds of Muslim scientists have many inventions to their names in the field of science for centuries.” [Extracted from twocircles.net]
