Takwin: Sciences and Innovation

Muslim scholars played a prominent role in preserving human civilization. They took the greatest care of applied sciences, collecting knowledge sources, setting rules and regulations, and competing in authoring about these sciences. They left an immense heritage of libraries filled with shelves of manuscripts. This exhibition showcases some of the manuscripts preserved by the King Faisal Center for Research and Islamic Studies (KFCRIS) in scientific fields such as medicine, astronomy, mathematics, and engineering, most of which contain illustrations.

The exhibition took place at King Faisal Center Library between Tuesday March 28, 2019 and Wednesday October 12, 2022.

The exhibition is hosted by House of Wisdom in Sharjah between Wednesday December 6, 2023 and Wednesday March 6, 2024.
