Arab Muslims: intellectuals and revolutionary inventors – or barefoot illiterate desert dwellers, camel and goat herders and robbers?

Many articles (for example, “How Islamic Inventors Changed The World” and “Setting the Record Straight: The Miracle of Islamic Science“) have made provably false claims, attributing various inventions, innovations and discoveries made by others to Islam and its followers. This article lists only genuine Islamic/Muslim inventions, innovations, records and firsts.


  • The yellow badge that was to be eventually used by the Nazis against the Jews, was invented by a Muslim caliph in Baghdad in the 9th century as a variant of the zunnār belt. This then spread to the West in medieval times.[1]
  • According to Dr. K. Ajram, the author of “Miracle of Islamic Science”, Muslim scholars invented racial-typing centuries before the German Johann Friedrich Blumenbach “divided mankind into white, yellow, brown, black and red peoples”.[2]
  • The world’s first PC computer virus, Brain.a, was created in September, 1986, by two brothers from Lahore, Pakistan, Amjad Farooq Alvi and Basit Farooq Alvi. They included their names, phone number and address in the code.[3][4]
  • The word “genocide”[5] was created in 1943, in order to describe the systematic killing of Armenian Christians by the Muslim Turks.[6][7] It is widely acknowledged to have been one of the first modern genocides,[8][9][10] and inspired the Jewish holocaust.[11]
  • The “military band” is thought to have its origins in the Ottoman military, the same military behind theArmenian Genocide, performed by the Janissary and accompanying the marching Muslim conquerors into battle since the 16th century.[12]

Arab bedouines: intellectuals and revolutionary inventors – or barefoot illiterate desert dwellers, camel and goat herders and robbers?

It is well documented in the Hadith that Mohammed was an orphan at six and illiterate. He clearly never wrote the Koran, but literally ‘compiled’ it exactly as the texts say, since the entire Koran are a potpourri of looted texts from various regional faiths pre-dating Mohammed by many centuries. Mohammed was born into the Hashemite clan of the Quraysh bedouine tribe, which may actually been a branch of the Banu Qurayza pagan Jewish tribe that he got expulsed from. If he was not part of the Jewish tribe, how could he be expulsed from it? He exterminated the tribein his adult life whereafter they ceased to exist.

Mohammed’s father died before he was even born. There is no historical evidence to disclaim that he was not the result of an illegitimate relation (prostitution?) which may be a reason why his mother brought him to a far region away from home, right before she died at a young age from an unknown disease. Mohammed was a goat herder as a boy. In his adult life Mohammed sustained himself on robberies, looting and murders. He was perhaps the world’s largest mega rouge, the first major gang leader. After age 50 he decides to a career in prophethood following bouts of hallucinations and depression and interpret these events as a religious calling.



  • The “Islamic tie”; registered in Iran’s Law of Registration of Patents, Industrial Designs and Trademarks, it is a tie shaped as a scimitar (a backsword or sabre with a curved blade).[13]
  • The “turban bomb”; a bomb hidden in the turban of a suicide bomber. In a case of life imitating art, this innovative use of a turban was first witnessed during a July 2011 memorial service for Ahmed Wali Karzai in an Afghani mosque, but has since been used in other suicide bombings.[14][15]
  • The “underpants bomb”; described as “ingenious” by counterterrorism officials, it is a device that incorporates plastic explosives and is worn by a suicide bomber in place of regular underwear. First used on a flight to Detroit on Christmas Day 2009, al-Qaeda planned to use an updated underpants device in another attack in 2012.[16][17]
  • The “donkey bomb”; an explosive-laden donkey that is detonated by remote control. Although donkey bombs are rare in Afghanistan, they are occasionally used by insurgents as a way of getting close to targets.[18]
  • The “butt bomb”; from the creator of the ‘underpants bomb’, an explosives device that is inserted into the rectum. First used by the bomb maker’s brother in an attack that left the bomber dead and his target only slightly injured. The National Security Center says full-body scanners may not be able to detect these anally hidden bombs. [19][20]

  • The first ever prosecution and conviction in the United Kingdom for inciting hatred on the grounds of sexuality were of three Muslim men who distributed leaflets calling for gay men to be killed. One of the men had said the leaflets – which suggested 3 different ways to murder gay people – simply expressed what Islam says about homosexuality.[33]

  • The first ever suicide bombing in Kazakhstan was carried out by a Muslim at the head office of the state security services in the northwestern Kazakh city of Aktobe, killing the bomber and wounding three security services personnel. It was in reaction to arrests of fundamentalist Muslims.[39]
  • The first ever suicide bombing in Mauritania was carried out by a Muslim outside the French embassy, killing the bomber and wounding three people. The reason is not known but Mauritania had recently witnessed a series of terrorist attacks against “Western” interests, including the kidnapping and murder of French tourists and an American teacher by Al-Qaeda.[40]
  • The first ever suicide bombing in Nigeria was carried out by a Muslim belonging to the Boko Haram terrorist group at the Nigeria Police Force headquarters in Abuja, killing the bomber and five others.

  • The first ever suicide bombing in Pakistan was carried out by a Muslim inside a church in Islamabad, killing five and injuring 40 others. It was in opposition to the country’s “pro-American ruler” (the dead and injured included American and British women and children).[44][45][46]
  • The first ever suicide bombing in Somalia was carried out by a Muslim outside the National Parliament in Baidoa, killing the bomber and five others, but missing Somalia’s interim president who was the intended target.

  1. They may have “invented” banging one’s forehead on the floor during prayer. I cannot think of any other group stupid enough to behave in such a weird way.
