Muslims are stuck in trivia like this.
Muslims have failed in the past and are still failing to adjust themselves to the realities of the world. They are stuck with the seventh century Arabian culture.
As far as the art of memorization is concerned, Muslims will beat most non-Muslim on earth in this matter. According to Dr. Pervaiz Hoodbhoy, they memorize even the scientific lessons and theories in order to obtain their doctorate in this subject!
Can anyone believe it? Yes, whoever is familiar with the Muslims' ways of learning, they would testify to the same fact Dr. Hoodbhoy has pointed out in his book, "Islam and Science."
Thanks for your succinct depiction of the Muslims' pathology and the reason for which they are lagging behind in the race to prosperity and their well-being. May you live long and keep on doing the fine job of sinking Islam further in the quagmire they find themselves in today.
