Arabs – the founders of geography

Source : Islam Magazine | Makhachkala | 2005

In the Middle Ages Arab geographers were the most versed in the knowledge of paths, roads and routes.
The interest to the observations of natural phenomena was an intrinsic characteristic of Arabs from the very beginning. They determined routes on land and at sea with the help of stars. Some pieces of knowledge in astronomy helped them to determine the weather, time of sowing, etc. This knowledge had been passing on from one generation to another.
