HISTORY’S MOST FAMOUS CODE CRACKED BY A MUSLIM!!

by birtanpublished on September 25, 2020

Meet the muslim who cracked history's most famous code it's safe to say that there is no ancient writing system that has captured the attention of anyone who came across it the way egyptian hieroglyphic writing

Has for centuries emperors scholars travelers grave robbers and many others have stopped by the walls of egypt's enduring monuments to examine

The mysterious symbols and images etched into the stone thinking about what they might mean it was in the 1820s that the french scholar john francois champollian finally cracked the code

Opening the door for the world to study and discover the incredible ancient history of egypt in a way that had previously been impossible but was champagne really the first person to successfully decipher

The egyptian hieroglyphs he certainly deserves credit for his groundbreaking achievement in egyptology but in reality the process was underway almost a thousand years before shampoo young was even born

Because at the end of the ninth century an alchemist by the name of abu bakker ibn osiya managed to decipher about half of all egyptian hieroglyphic symbols considering the

Fact that there are a total of about seven hundred to eight hundred symbols to be cracked this was an achievement that deserves recognition even washi washi's contribution was

First brought to light in 2004 by the london-based egyptologist dr okasha al-dali a professor at ucla's institute of archaeology muslims are urged in quran almost every other page there are 15

Ayah in quran which sound very similar to these ones here all these ayahs encourage muslims and and ties them into looking around them on the universe and

Study what they see around them so it's not just the natural curiosity of human beings that encourage arab strict interest in ancient egypt it is all these ayahs in quran that

Entice and encourage muslims to take closer look and study the world around them the world of the ancient civilizations ancient cultures if only two establish the reasons of this mice and

Learn the fate and avoid it if people were whatever wrong they did and they were destroyed as a result the muslims should learn the lesson and don't do the same eldali did extensive research on the

Study of ancient egypt in medieval arab islamic writing and convincingly argued that not only did muslims express a deep interest in the study of ancient civilizations but that they could also correctly

Decipher egyptian hieroglyphic script but who was this ibn washi and why was he trying to decipher the hieroglyphs in the first place the little information we have about his

Background is hopelessly confusing he lived in kufa iraq during the abbasid period when the scholarly and scientific movement at the famous house of wisdom

In nearby baghdad was in full swing and he was an alchemist which was probably in the hope of discovering the ancient egyptians secrets of alchemy that he was trying to decipher their

Mysterious system of writing he hacked other cryptic alphabets as well 93 of them in fact including alphabets used by the ancient babylonian egyptian semitic hellenistic and hindu

Civilizations he published his findings in a text titled kittab in which he gave a list of hieroglyphic symbols their meaning either as sounds or words

And their arabic equivalent eldali compared ibn washi's conclusions on hieroglyphics with egyptologists modern day understanding of them and found them to be accurate

The discovery of ibn washi's contribution opened up the discussion of the role of classical muslim thinkers in the field of egyptology which had been ignored for centuries

Partly because of a prevailing eurocentric emphasis on history and partly because the relevant manuscripts were scattered and not accounted for just a few years after el dali's revelations some

Historians have already begun to recognize ibn washi as the first real egyptologist in history about a century later another muslim aboriginal borini

Would become the first indologist in history el-dali emphasized that because of their prejudices about islam western scholars have been unfair to classical muslim egyptologists western culture

Misinterprets islam because we in the west think teaching of civilizations before the quran is shunned which isn't the case he said they valued history and assumed egypt

Was a land of science and wisdom and as such they wanted to learn their language to have access to such vast knowledge in reality the research in egyptology that classical muslims carried out

Is even more reliable than the research of their contemporaries in pre-modern christian europe critically they did not unlike the west write history to fit with religious

Ideas of the time which makes their accounts more reliable sadly they were also keen on the universality of a human history based on the unity of the origin of human beings

And the diversity of their appearance and languages eben washia is just one example of the general attitude towards ancient civilizations that dr el dali is describing in these

Statements shortly before urban washi's time the famous abbasid khalif and ma'amun had visited egypt while on a military campaign and had asked a sage ayub ibn maslama

To try to translate the fascinating hieroglyphics for him ayoob failed but ma'moon at least managed to force open the blocked entrance to the great pyramid at giza

That taurus still used today jabbar ibn hayan who was widely considered to be the father of chemistry was also fascinated by the hieroglyphs and the secrets

They may hold regarding his field of research similarly the 9th century sufi saint vahon no nan miseri was also deeply interested in the egyptians hieroglyphs the classical historian al masroodi

Described him as one of those who elegicate the history of these egyptian temple ruins he roamed among them and examined a great quantity of figures and inscriptions

Misery is said to have eventually deciphered the hieroglyphs and there may be many other examples just waiting to be discovered it is possible that another muslim actually managed to crack the

Hieroglyphic code entirely but even with the sources we have we can say with confidence that eben ushia the first real egyptologist made the biggest contribution toward deciphering the hieroglyphs

Until shampoo leon finished the job nearly a thousand years later muslims today would benefit immensely from continuing to explore different cultural traditions and historical mysteries

With the same spirit and zeal you
