Slice of pi

Remember Mohammed Ibn-Musa al-Khowarizmi?

Well for those of you thinking, huh? , the great Khowarizmi could be regarded as the father of Algebra – yes, I know, we’re talking maths again!

Not only is Al-Khowarizmi regarded as the founding father of Algebra, but he actually popularised Algebra into a distinct topic from Geometry as well as introducing a value for pi and producing algorithms and trigonometric tables – whew!

Truly Al Khowarizmi was a great Muslim mathematician whose contribution to mathematics has helped all those who came after him. May Allah fill his grave with Noor (Light).

And Allah knows best.
