Abstract

This article analyses the collaboration between Muslim and non-Muslim scholars in the Islamic civilization, specifically during the Abbasid era. Its purpose is to give due acknowledgement to non-Muslim scholars who worked closely with Muslim scholars to spur science and technology excellence in the Islamic civilization during the Abbasid era. In addition, it also aims to discover the reasons conducive to Muslim and non-Muslim collaboration in developing science and technology in the Islamic civilization. This study finds that Muslim and non-Muslim scholars could work closely together to develop scientific and technological progress during the Abbasid era.
