        The Muslim golden age was the same thing, they got into pagan Greek philosophy, math and science. The Islamic world declined when it became more fundamentalist and lost interest in outside ideas thanks to people like ibn Tamiyya.

          Ibn Taymiyya is largely irrelevant outside of Hanbalis (and Salafis). The fundamentalism isn't why it declined. There were luddite policies pushed by rulers who weren't even fundamentalist.

          ...The Muslim golden age was literally just Persians using old Sassanian and Greek knowledge, hell most scholars of this era outright hated Islam and did not attribute their knowledge to the Arabs

          >...The Muslim golden age was literally just Persians using old Sassanian and Greek knowledge, hell most scholars of this era outright hated Islam and did not attribute their knowledge to the Arabs
          Bullshit. If they hated Islam, they wouldn't be counted among the Muslims. Countless Muslim scholars from the Middle Ages across all subjects.

    It was real, in the same vein as the Roman or Hellenistic Golden Ages.

    It was triggered mainly from the Persians converting en masse to Islam, and bringing their civilization with them, as well as the new caliphates ruling huge parts of the former Hellenistic world - and hellenized Christians translating Greek works for the Arabs, or simply converting to Islam themselves.

    The Mongol conquests (as well as the Turks converting to Islam and autistically invading the Middle East) caused unending chaos and unrest throughout the region, basically killing the Golden Age and any hope for a continuation. After the Turkic and Mongol conquests, the Middle East became a theater in which Turkic armies constantly warred with each other.

          I'm not Iranian/Persian. I could care less about their nationalistic arguments. I am a Muslim, though, so I've long been interested in this topic.

          "It is a remarkable fact that, with few exceptions, most Muslim scholars ... in the intellectual sciences have been non-Arabs, thus the founders of grammar were Sibawaih and after him, al-Farsi and Az-Zajjaj. All of them were of Persian descent they invented rules of (Arabic) grammar. Great jurists were Persians. Only the Persians engaged in the task of preserving knowledge and writing systematic scholarly works. Thus the truth of the statement of the prophet (Muhammad) becomes apparent, 'If learning were suspended in the highest parts of heaven the Persians would attain it "... The intellectual sciences were also the preserve of the Persians, left alone by the Arabs, who did not cultivate them...as was the case with all crafts. ... This situation continued in the cities as long as the Persians and Persian countries, Iraq, Khorasan, and Transoxiana (modern Central Asia), retained their sedentary culture."

          - Ibn Khaldun

          >Persian made nothing of worth for 2 thousand years before they became Muslims

          This smells like Arab copium. The Persians had several giant empires and were the main rivals to Rome and the Hellenistic world in the Middle East. The Romans nearly bankrupted and ruined themselves fighting the Persians.

          Iranic peoples were indeed the main driving force of Muslim intellectualism during the Middle Ages. However, it wasn't exclusively them either.

          In North Africa and Al-Andalus it was mainly Arab and Amazigh intellectuals. In West and Central Asia, it was mainly Iranic peoples.

    Look I know it's trendy to bash on Muslims, but from the 8th century to arguably the 17th, they were one of the leading innovators in learning, arts, finance, etc.

    What gets downplayed and outright ignored is the 12th century renaissance that Europe had. From 1100 to 1453, Europe's trajectory to development was growing leaps and bounds after centuries of malaise since the 5th century to the end of the Viking Age/beginning of the Crusades which coincided in the late 11th century. There's a reason why the 1000's was a pivotal watershed because Europe was starting to yield agriculture at profit that allowed them to project military and cultural projects beyond earlier limitations.

    Anyone with half a brain would study in an Islamic university during the 800's to 1200s when arguably Islam was at its intellectual/artistic peak.

    It’s a bad and subjective label, but it’s clear that the Abbasids marked the apex of Islamic civilization. Third worlders don’t understand their own history though and just constantly use the term because “it’s when our guys were powerful and badass,” Balkan-tier nationalism.

        The Ottomans were basically split into two groups:

        - Nomadic Turks intermixing with native Anatolians over the centuries. Many of these stayed peasants in Anatolia
        - Greeks, Croats, Serbs, Albanians, Italians, Armenians, Romanians etc etc. Muslim converts, basically a big chunk of the former Byzantine Empire. This latter group would constitute a big part of the political and military elite, primarily through the Janissaries.

        I think if the early Umayyad's or Abbasids had captured Constantinople, we'd see a very different type of Islamized Roman Empire without the autistic Turkish nomadism

    The Islamic Golden Age (TM) is what happens when warlords kill the local population surrounding every major library of the time, and the start claiming they invented everything. We wuz Greeks and shit!!!! The most important libraries they did not conquer were in Rome, which is why the renaissance started there. The Western Europe invented the university and remote libraries became less important, and the intellectual power balance has been restored ever since.

      >The Islamic Golden Age (TM) is what happens when warlords kill the local population surrounding every major library of the time

      This is false. The Muslims (with the help of Hellenized Christians) feverishly translated Greek works into Arabic. They were obsessed with Euclid and Greek mathematicians. The only difference between them and the Romans is that they didn't want to BE Greeks.

      >The Western Europe invented the university

      Highly debated. European scholars don't consider early Muslim madrasas as European style secular universities, although many early Muslim madrasas would teach the Greek Trivium and Quadrivium.

        European universities, early on, very much were analogous to Islamic madrasas, and probably were inspired by them during the Crusades, as madrasas were established earlier. European universities, during the High Middle Ages, were primarily for clergy and lawyers, just as madrasas were primarily for ulema and jurists
