    What you have cited here is a list of "words". What do the words represent?

    "Mathematics" is a SYSTEM which FACILITATES MEASUREMENT of "things", thus allowing the "Mathematician" to effectively observe and evaluate the nature of, and relationships between, "things"; for the purpose of facilitating "continued productive interaction with one's environment", or "survival".

    Islam, apart from the dogmas and rhetoric commonly associated with it, describes a METHOD of "interacting with one's environment" that takes into account the prevailing circumstances, thus facilitating "survival" for the adherents...using observable Natural Phenomena as "guiding principles".
    Incidentally, the word "algebra" is a westernization of an Arabic word -- "al-jabr" -- related to one of the Attributes of Allah, "Al-Jabbir" -- the Compellor, the Mighty.

    Is this what Islam is?
    i think u taking "mathematics" literally g, however i agree with whoever said that mathematics is somehow related 2 everything in the universe

    your thinkin more the arithemitic?

    2 me "mathematics" in terms of islam is the supreme alphabet, and overstanding of the 120 lessons, the process of learning the lessons has also been called "doin the math"

    P.E.A.C.E
