The Center for Islamic Civilization Studies

The Center for Islamic Civilization Studies is one of the research centers affiliated to the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (BA) and aspires to achieve the BA goals, including promoting the universality of Islam, its message of tolerance, and the Islamic civilization that has been a cornerstone in human history. The Center’s goals contribute to the dissemination of certain ideals, such as acceptance, fraternity and accepting the other, while rejecting bigotry. The Islamic Civilization, which spread from China in the east to Andalusia in the west, left behind a path of enlightenment and numerous achievements in the fields of science, art, and philosophy that collectively and harmoniously benefitted humanity in many ways. Spaces of freedom were created when translation and openness on different cultures flourished during the Islamic ages and led to diversity and creativity. The Islamic Civilization has had its unique characteristics and momentous achievements throughout history which have remained relevant and significant in our modern day and age.
