Describe :
The history of science in Islamic countries is reviewed to understand the historical context that accompanied its rise in the eighth century, then explore some explanations for the decline of Arab sciences and show the limits of the attempt of Muslim reformers in the nineteenth century. Restoration of the status of science. The historical debate between the Arab reformers Abduh and Antun remains largely topical and allows us to discern the position of many Muslims on the issue of secularization and the separation of religion from science.
