The fascinating history of Arabic-Islamic medicine forces us to admire our predecessors, who laboured hard and made significant contributions to knowledge. Some present-day historians like to call it “Arabic medicine” because it was written in Arabic, the language of the Holy Qur’ān; others, however, use the expression “Islamic medicine”, from the fact that it flourished under the banner of Islam, when Muslim rulers sponsored research, irrespective of race, creed or colour.
