Inspiration: Algebra is Arabic for “mending fractures,” applied in mathematics to reconciling fractions. Legendary polymath Muhammad Al-Khawarizmi first developed algebra to simplify complex Islamic inheritance laws and calculate prayer directions toward Mecca. His invention – originally developed for a religious purpose – today underpins nearly every aspect of modern life. Inspired by Al-Khawarizmi, The Algebra Society leverages insights from Islamic scholarship to help anyone heal life’s fractures.
Philosophy: Algebra embodies a mindset rooted in classical wisdom yet focused on progress, with fractures and imperfections becoming opportunities for growth. Reflecting this mindset, The Algebra Society develops self-improvement resources that incorporate core principles of Islamic scholarship:
- Nature illustrates organic processes of rejuvenation and growth;
- Wisdom is rooted in language, which draws on nature to articulate ideas;
- Seeking healing is a life-long process that requires flexibility and focus.
