Level:3RD Year Classes /Literary Stream Due Time: 2Hours


PART ONE: Reading and interpreting (15 pts)
- Read the text carefully and do the following activities.
The Arabs had expanded in the seventh and eight centuries having as their center Damascus. A dynasty called Umayyad had established himself in this same city but due to their corrupt behavior they did not last too long in power. Soon later, in 750, came the Abbasid dynasty with a man called Abu al-Abbas, this dynasty brought many changes to the world of Islam such as distinction between Arab and non-Arab Muslims. Later, in 762, the establishment of the capital city was relocated to Baghdad. The Abbasid dynasty was well reigned throughout the ninth century by Harun el-Rashed (786-809) and his son, al-Ma'mun (813-833) who founded an astronomical observation and created a foundation for translating classical Greek works.
Since Arabs conquered many of the rich provinces from the old Roman Empire they themselves were also becoming very wealthy with Baghdad as the trade center for the Middle East and Europe. Unfortunately for the empire there was at some point an awful fight between two brothers for the succession to the caliphate. Following this dilemma the empire broke apart into separate dynasties, a major one being in southern Spain with a leader named Abd-al-Rahman; this dynasty was probably the last of the Umayyads. Many other independent dynasties came along later such as one in Egypt. Even though the empire actually broke up the bond they still had together was the Quran and the Arabic language.
The Islamic civilization was the one who introduced Algebra in Mathematics and the one who perfected the astrolabe.They discovered concepts in chemistry and also developed medicine. Furthermore, they translated several works from ancient Greek philosophers and writers into Arabic and introduced it to people in Europe.They achieved great success and introduced new ideas ;and had a pretty strong impact on countries at before Europe really started to develop.
