      Under the first Muslim Caliphate, Islamic society was in a period of adjustment to the death of the Prophet, consolidation and growth. During this period of rapid expansion, the Islamic Empire incorporated Syria, Persia, Cyprus and Egypt, thus diversifying the population to include Greeks, Persians, Egyptians, Christians, Zoroastrians and Jews.   There is written evidence for "unbelief," at least. John Arnold's book Belief and Unbelief in Medieval Europe reviews much of it. Arnold argues there are various levels of "unbelief," from heresies, to indifference, to possible atheism.

      The book argues that disbelief is actually “as old as the hills”. Early examples, such as the atheistic writings of Xenophanes of Colophon (c BCE) are contemporary with Second Temple-era Judaism, and significantly predate Christianity and Islam. Europe and the Islamic World sheds much-needed light on the shared roots of Islamic and Western cultures and on the richness of their inextricably intertwined histories, refuting once and for all the misguided notion of a "clash of civilizations" between the Muslim world and Europe. In this landmark book.

      The discovery of a translated page credited to Ibn Sīna’s work in an Irish book is a testament to the immense prestige of Islamic learning in 15th century Europe. It shows that medicine from the Muslim world was dominant in European societies at the time. Most likely the page was from an encyclopedia that was used to train doctors in Ireland. The Golden Age of medieval Islam was forged during the ninth and tenth centuries in Baghdad, seat of the third Islamic caliphate. Baghdad’s many achievements in philosophy, science, medicine, painting, poetry, and music are largely attributable to its openness to diverse sources of knowledge, symbolized by the famed House of Wisdom, a network of academies that translated all of the world’s.

The Islamic achievements in medieval medicine were groundbreaking. While medieval European medicine was still mired in superstitions and the rigid Catholic teachings of the Church, the advent of Islam in the 7th century A.D. gave rise to impressive growth and discoveries in many scientific fields, especially medicine.

Islam has drawn significant negative attention in recent decades in Europe, and in the Western world more widely. Although our post-9/11 world has been characterized by a damaging view of Islam.

Bringing his survey up to atheism and freethought in the Islamic world in this century and the last two, Ibn Warraq finds that oft-reported numbers of converts to Islam in the West have been wildly inflated and uncritically repeated, while the number of Muslims who have left Islam is much higher than is generally assumed, as is to be expected.

In the Islamic world, there were people who questioned at least the Islamic conception of religion. The most famous was Ibn al-Rawandi (AD), who started out as a Sunni, then became a Shi'ite, and eventually rejected all forms of revealed religion, and wrote a book called The Book of the Emerald which attacked Islam and various parts of the Qu'ran, and how it and the Bible contradicted.

Islamic medicine drew upon Hellenic medical tradition to form its own. Likewise, medieval and early modern scholars in Europe drew upon Islamic traditions and translations as the foundation for their medical enterprise.

It was through Arabic translations that the West learned of Hellenic medicine, including the works of Galen and Hippocrates. For atheists from a Muslim background, disputing the authenticity of the Qur’an and the Prophet often seems more relevant than questioning God – and there is a long tradition of doing so.
