MuslimHeritage.com, a unique online Education Community, that brings together Muslims and Non-Muslims seeking to advance Civilisation through the study of Muslim Heritage. Pioneered by the Foundation for Science Technology and Civilisation (FSTC Limited) in the UK, it is an ambitious project that aims to raise global awareness on the importance and relevance of Muslim Heritage and its mostly unaccounted contribution to current world civilisation.
Why Muslim Heritage? A vast repository of knowledge and historical data on the critical role of the Muslim contribution to science, technology and world civilisation is available in library archives throughout the world. This knowledge if comprehensively extracted, documented and popularised, would provide stronger intellectual foundations for Muslims to begin to reassert their identity as major pioneers of human civilisation.
There are a few centres of learning, scattered throughout the world, that have done excellent research work on Muslim heritage and have collated valuable source materials. There is however no project that has set out to catalogue and centralise all these sources of Muslim heritage and make it available globally in a popular format.
Through the advancement in Internet technologies, FSTC has the facility to allow global access to this new Muslim heritage database, including source materials, 3-D recreated models of Muslim technology and an online community of scholars and contributors.
