The Arab world was at the crossroads of the ancient trade routes and continues to be a central meeting point for civilizations due to its unique positioning and geography. This has contributed to its large cultural and population diversity and a distinctive admixture of local inhabitants and migrants. Arabs were collectively known for their passion to transmit their culture through their written records that have had an astounding impact on the arts and sciences as we know them today.
