Build knowledge of Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, Chinese and Indian civilizations, Muslims develop a culture of learning in which the inquiring mind seeking truth based on scientific rigor and experimentation. In almost every field of knowledge, Muslims make new discoveries and inventions with practical results that help develop the community.

In the year 859 young princess named Fatima al-Firhi founded the first degree-granting university in Fez, Morocco. Miriam, his sister, who founded an adjacent mosque and together the complex became Masjid al-Qarawiyyin and Universities that are still operating almost 1,200 years later.
