Harun's son and fighting/ preservation
Harun’s son was a great patron of learning, founding an astronomical observatory and creating a foundation for translating Classical Greek works. Although internal fighting for succession and vast wealth eventually led to a fragmented Islamic culture only bounded by language of passion for the Qu’ran, Muslims are still responsible for making great advancements. In fact, they were heirs of the Greco-Roman culture of the Roman empire, assimiliating the culture of their conquered territories. They had several libraries with numerous manuscripts. Furthermore, they collected books from all over and translated them into Arabic and Latin, something that later contributed to the resurfacing of previous scientific texts. Schools were established, as well as several buildings, palaces, and mosques. Furthemrmore, they preserved scientific and philosophical works, especially those of Plato and Aristotle, which were put into the House of Wisdom. The preservation of works was eased with the use of paper, which would later positively benefit European universities.
