1001 Inventions & The Library of Secrets


The Foundation for Science, Technology & Civilisation recently embarked upon the 1001 Inventions initiative as a global educational exhibition that promotes awareness of a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements from Muslim civilisation. Launched in London, the exhibition has travelled across the world and continues to achieve astounding success.

Starring Sir Ben Kingsley as Al-Jazari – a master engineer from the 13th Century – our film reveals the huge impact on the world that’s been made by the inventions and discoveries of Muslim inventors and scientists in the Golden Age of Islam.

“Al-Jazari takes us on a magical journey of discovery, showing the incredible impact of historical Muslim figures on the world of today”
