MUSLIM WORLD SCIENTISTS OF THE TEMURIDS PERIOD

Abstract

As soon as Amir Timur came to power, he made great progress in in all spheres and science as well. It should be noted that this development continued during the reign of the Timurids. During the period of their rule, many world-known scholars in Islamic theology were brought up in Mavarannahr. From this, we can infer that religious sciences, particularly science of tafsir also developed alongside with secular sciences. It is worth emphasizing that the Temurids entered the world history as patrons of science and as rulers who established large libraries, scientific meetings, madrasas and schools. Moreover, many scientific institutions which were destroyed during the reign of the Mongols were restored by Temurids. At that time dozens of commentators worked in different parts of the Muslim world and they translated the Koran and also transmitted this interpretation to people. As the consequence the sciences pertaining to holy Koran and hadith prospered and it proceeded in the next centuries. The article also highlights the work of commentators who lived in the XV century
