This section fondly remembers the navigators – the term used here metaphorically to represent the Muslim Scientists and Contributors in earlier times who directed and led us to progress, advancement and the betterment of society through their contributions in numerous fields including astronomy, mathematics, physics, chemistry and medicine among others. The degree of perfection achieved by the Muslims in science remains unparalleled in history.
Our aspirations should always be in the celestial. That’s why almost all of the early scholars of Islam were astronomers.
Shaykh Hamza Yusuf
