How are Muslims contributing to the development of science?
Islam and science are mostly perceived in the west as incompatible.

Also, early Islamic history shows that Muslims like Ibn Sina, Al-Farabi, Omar Khayyam, Averroes, al-Ghazali, and Ibn Khaldum among many others, were pioneers of modern science.
