Contributions of the Moorish Empire to European, African and World Civilizations

Most part of the European civilization was impacted by the Moors. Besides, the expulsion of the Moors from Italy was a serious setback to European nations. The Moor acquired the area from the Visigoths, including even the kingdoms that were occupied by the Moslems. However, going by the concept of Moslem, the European nations became an ideal example of a civilized country unlike its neighbors. The conquerors of Spain exploited her wealth and endangered a legendary market through the Moors technological innovations capabilities. The conquerors of the nations designed various places in the wealthy valleys of the Guadiana and Guadalquivir, whose titles still stand in honor of the ancient glories that have since disappeared. Literary works, art, and technology thrived, and they were unable to succeed anywhere in the European countries (Hamilton 16).

The institutions designed by the Moor attracted many students from Italy, Malaysia and Britain. Doctors and surgeons practiced serious medicine, females on the other hand, were motivated to learn more and a lady physician was a typical function of the lives of the Cordova people.  In Italy alone, various studies were perfected including Arithmetic, astronomy and botany, history, jurisprudence and philosophy. The Moors took and perfected the works of the region, the scientific irrigation method, artistry of fortification and shipbuilding (Osei 10).

The Moor also stood very firm when it came to war. Their fleets questioned the control of the Mediterranean Sea, and people’s arms carried a sword and fire through the Religious marches. The national idol CPid battled on the side of the Moorish and in all preserve education and learning was mainly a thing for the Moors. In fact, the features that contribute towards the greatness and flourishing of an empire, its civilization and improvement of the society were discovered in Moslem Italy (Hamilton 23).

The Emir Yahia from Morocco met a spiritual reformer, Ibn Yasin in Mecca and convinced him to getting back with him to assist in the education of the Moors doctrines to the people. Besides, Yasin together with his supporters moved on to European Africa-American on a tiny island in the Senegal Stream in European African-American. This activity became quite famous and referred to his supporters as Moravites. However, the name was soon modified to the Almoravides. After the acquisition of this place in southern west Morocco, Yahia died in 1056, and succeeded by his siblings who led his military to numerous accomplishments (Osei 21).

The base of Morocco city was set up by Yusuf using his own arms, and afterwards he declared freedom of the North Empire which was to be the capital city. By the season 1082, he had become a superior leader who was well known on this part of the world. Besides, the court that he set up had begun enticing the civilization and learning the municipal war which was brewing in Italy. Thus, he agreed to go over to Italy, and after his efforts, he was able to push back the religious believers and recognize once again a superior Sultan. According to him, this Sultan had to be considered as the only solution to the problems that faced the African empire. In 1492, the Moors fall gave way to the campaign of Isabella and Ferdinand. Besides, Spain’s success was dropped by Granada. In fact, the representation of the elegance of the Moor indicates the successes achieved in the area, which had once been heated with its warm brilliance (Hamilton 33).
