Aims & Mission

FSTC UK is an innovative and influential charity working to collate and popularise the cultural roots of the early inventions and discoveries, which still affect our modern world, in order to highlight the shared cultural and technological inheritance of humanity. It is non-political, non-sectarian, and non-religious in approach.

It promotes the awareness of the scientific, technological and cultural achievements of men and women of different faiths and cultures from both the Muslim civilisation and other civilisations.

It shows how those contributions helped build the foundations of our modern world. FSTC aims to uncover the cultural roots of science to achieve the following:

  • To foster an accurate understanding of the thousand years of exceptional advances in science, technology, medicine and the arts made by men and women within the Muslim World from the 7th century onwards.


  • To generate social cohesion, cultural awareness and respect through the exploration of Muslim and World heritage and how it’s woven into our global society and civilisation so that we all share and benefit from this heritage.


  • To promote science and learning as an alternative to negative or extremist behaviour.


  • To prevent and relieve poverty by providing grants, items and services to individuals and organisations in need including training and workshops.
