When viewing history free of preconceptions, we realize that the cast of characters who built the world of science, art and culture, -that we enjoy today-, is broader than we have been taught. One particular aspect of human history that is somehow overlooked is the contribution of the Islamic civilization to the shaping of our world.
The Mohammed Ali Research Center (MOHA) strives to reinsert the Islamic contributions in mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, medicine, geography, hydrology, alchemy, as well as poetry, music and art in their rightful place in the world intellectual history.
In furthering knowledge of the Islamic civilization at a time of political polarization and religious radicalization, MOHA aims to enhance mutual respect as a prerequisite of geopolitical harmony.
MOHA’s mission is to contribute to the formation of a peaceful and prosperous research environment acting as a platform for cultures to coexist and flourish.
