There won’t be any gadgets n computers as such if Muslims didn’t revolutionized sciences with word cipher n Arabic numerals plus algebra plus alchemy plus algorithms.

The word "cipher" (minority spelling "cypher") in former times meant "zero" and had the same origin: Middle French as cifre and Medieval Latin as cifra, from the Arabic صفر sifr = zero (see Zero—Etymology).

Arabic numerals are the ten digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, one of several sets of glyphs used to write numbers in the Hindu–Arabic numeral system. ... The term Arabic numerals is ambiguous, as it may also be intended to mean the numerals used by Arabs — generally the Eastern Arabic numerals.

Although originally Hindu Muslims never hesitated to call it Hindsa from Hindu and introduced the numerals to Europe thru Spain.

Even today ex CEO of Hewlett-Packard Carly Fiorina is asking her employees to emulate islamic civilization ( not Hindu or Chinese or Roman) in this famous excerpt from her address to her former employees.
