Archival – Vienna Imam: Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Da Vinci Were Thieves Who Robbed the Islamic Heritage

Mustards make tall claims. Unfortunately, there is nothing to substantiate them:

MEMRI Transcript below the fold:

Archival – Vienna Imam: Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Da Vinci Were Thieves Who Robbed the Islamic Heritage

In a lesson at the Strasbourg Islamic center dealing with the contribution of Islamic civilization to the West, Vienna-based Imam Adnan Ibrahim said that Copernicus had stolen his ideas from a Damascus scientist and muezzin. He went on to say: “Galileo Galilei, Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler the German, Leonardo da Vinci… These people were mere thieves, who robbed the Islamic heritage.” The lesson was posted on the Internet in January 2011.
Following are excerpts:
Adnan Ibrahim: The contribution of Islamic civilization to the West goes far beyond what they admit and what we are aware of. We are not aware of this, and they do not admit it. Thus, the truth remains hidden, clandestine. They keep it hidden, brothers, because they fear they would be put to shame. They fear that [their] racism and centralism would be exposed. It goes far beyond what we are aware of.

Let me tell you a story that happened when the Polish prime minister visited Damascus, in the days of President Al-Assad Senior. President Hafez Al-Assad said to him: Mr. Prime Minister, I’d like to complain about your people. The new universal system established by Nicolaus Copernicus – known as the heliocentric system, in which the sun is the center of the universe… Of course, the sun is not really, the center of the universe, but that was what Nicolaus Copernicus thought. That was the Copernican Revolution. Today, they talk about a Copernican revolution in economy, for example, a Copernican revolution in biology, a Copernican revolution in physics… Copernicus was a great man – one of the four founding fathers of Western science.

Al-Assad asked: Who invented this theory? The Polish Pm said: Copernicus. The entire world knows this. Then Assad said: But you and I know that it was not Copernicus. Copernicus stole it. It was invented by Abu Al-Hasan Ibn Al-Shatir, a muezzin in a Damascus mosque. He was a clockmaker. He was a great scientist. [Al-Assad] said: It was Abu Al-Hasan Ibn Al-Shatir who talked about this system. It was an innovation from the Ptolemaic system, the geocentric system, in which the Earth is the center of the universe. It’s not correct. The heliocentric system is also incorrect.

Then the Polish PM smiled an embarrassed smile and said: Yes, it’s true. They know this. We did this, with the grace of Allah. Galileo Galilei, Tycho Brahe, Johannes Kepler the German, Leonardo de Vinci, the engineer, artist, sculptor, which his rich scientific imagination… These people, I am very sad to say – and this is based on the evidence of a group of German science historians… These people were mere thieves, who robbed the Islamic heritage, which was kept in the darkness of church crypts for over 200 years. Then they pulled it out and attributed it to themselves, as if these were their original innovations. This is stolen heritage.

Jabir Ibn Al-Hayan, according to scientific history… Do you know how many books this man wrote? He lived in the second century AH. This is almost unbelievable. In chemistry alone, he wrote 1,700 books. This is almost unbelievable.


Jabir ibn Al-Hayan was the first to mention the nuclear binding energy, which is the basis for the nuclear explosion. He said that in the heart of every nucleus… Of course, he did not talk about the atom. He meant something simple like dust particles. If the power there can be released, it will burn down Baghdad. How did he understand that?! This is the genius of the Muslim mind. The author Baha Al-Amili wrote Al-Mikhla and Al-Khashkul. What is not known about him is that he was an eminent physicist, and that in a mosque in Esfahan, he managed to develop the formula that Western physics is incapable of reaching to this day: perpetual energy, such as perpetual motion or perpetual lighting. It continues all the time with no energy source. That’s impossible. Galileo Galilei was very interested in this idea, but eventually, he raised a white flag and said: I give up. Today, they say that it is impossible. But Baha Al-Amili created lights in that mosque, and they kept working day and night without going out and without any energy source.

  1. Muslims delusions, revisionism and comedy all rolled in one.

    Ha. Best comedy line ever…..”genius of the Muslim mind.”




    There is a growing anger toward the Muslim and its Islam, an anger that is manifesting itself across the civilized world in the form of the arrests, the isolation, the incarceration and the deportation of the Muslim. Further, it seems that there is also a growing trend toward the banning of the Muslim Tactical Planning Centers (Mosques) by denying building permits. Further action is taken against mosques in the deconstruction of existing Mosques that are directly or indirectly linked to “extremism”.

    In Canada we have taken large strides toward removing the Muslim and its Islam from our midst.

    To protect decent Canadians from the verminous Muslim and its habitual barbarism and savagery, Canadian politicians passed the “Zero Tolerance for Barbaric Cultural Practices Act” (Bill S-7)

    Further recent arrests of the Muslim have also been couple with the stripping of the Muslim of its Canadian citizenship. This appears to be the first in a series of steps taken before the Muslim is deported.

    In addition the Canadian Senate recently recommended 25 course of action to be taken by the Canadian government in dealing with the Muslim and its Islam. One of those is the criminalization of the Muslim Brotherhood and the designation of the same as a “terrorist organization”. Once this is done this renders at least a dozen Muslim groups in Canada who now operate as “friendly”, “community” Muslim liaison association and organizations as what they truly are; supporters of terrorism and the annihilation of Canada with the remnants of the same becoming an Islamified state ruled by Sharia Law.

    This same proactive stance taken against the Muslim has now emerged in countries like Denmark and France where they are looking at deconstructing all supportive infrastructure that the Muslim relies on for its life and daily treasonous existence.

    Another example of growing moves toward cutting the Muslim cancer from a decent society can be found in Thailand where they recently deported a large number of Uighur Muslims.

    Thailand knows what the world knows; The Muslim and its Islam is a cancerous plague of barbarism and savagery that destroys everything it touches. The only cure for the cancer of the Muslim and its Islam is cutting it from its host and destroying everything that is associated with the Muslim and its Islam.

    The links below illustrate that Thailand is doing just that, cutting from its midst, the cancer of the Muslim and its Islam.

      On a personal note, I am disappointed that the Thai government did not place these Muslims in front of a M.A.T.T (Muslim Aggression Treason Tribunal) and upon a finding of guilty on charges of treason and sedition, execute them.

      The reality is that the Muslim considers itself in a state of war, at all times, in all places against all non-Muslims.

      The reality is that Islam is a global supremacist political ideology that seeks total world domination and the annihilation and or subjugation of all non-Muslims. To achieve this total global domination the Muslim and its Islam will use any mechanism at its disposal including but not limited to murder, threats, violence, intimidation, duplicity, deceit, deception, theft, infiltration, treason, law-fare and garment-fare.

      So, understanding the Muslim, understanding Islam and understanding the threat that both of these pose to a free and civilized world, would not the best solution be the complete eradication of the Muslim and its Islam from all civilized countries?

      After all, one does not ask a doctor to only remove “half” the cancerous tumor from your body, the same tumor that threatens to kill you, does one?

      1. By the way, the clip above is based in MMM (Marxist Mainstream Media) and contains a multitude of misleading, Marxist descriptives and analysis.

        Simply put, Thailand is ridding itself of Muslims who are threatening the national security and national sovereignty of Thailand.

  3. Actually, we all know the real truth: Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Da Vinci were women disguised as men.
    Red headed women at that! (they wore wigs and false mustaches)

  4. The comments here plainly represent the hatred towards Islam. No one has objectively argued these facts. Instead, only criticizing Islam which shows how sick they really are. Get your facts straight!

    Western Astronomers made great advancements in many sciences no doubt. However, they would not be able to do so without the foundations put forth by great ol’ Muslim pioneers.

    Stop robbing! give credit for the true founders of modern sciences.
