What is the relationship between Astronomy and Islam ?
Why were Muslims interested in astronomy?

While responding to these questions in the movie,

The Islamic Golden Age became a melting pot for different ideas and, ultimately, provided much of the knowledge that went on to inspire the great astronomers of the Renaissance to enter our modern world of science.
