For almost seven centuries the Muslim scientists were not at the
forefront of scientific achievement. Despite the facts that many of the
Muslim scientists have been accepted to work in the world class
established laboratory or institution throughout the world, none except
a few has make it to win the Noble prize.

On the other hand, there is an increasing numbers of Muslim scientists elected to leadership role in their respective countries or abroad either in established scientific institutions or whether as the ruling political leaders, the opposition leaders or as leaders of the non-governmental organizations.

This might be an important sign of scientific re-emergence already present in the Muslim world but yet to be recognized by the Western communities.

Recognition of the contribution of the individual or group is important
not only for personal satisfaction but also to foster a healthy
environment for further scientific advancement. And it should not only
be limited to the universities or higher institutional learning centres, but
must go down to the school, community and family level.

The scientific bodies or academies in the Muslims countries should not
be carried over by prestigious awards in science such as the Noble Prize
and the L'oreal-Unesco Awards for 'Women in Science' and
concentrating only to the 'big gun' in science. They should be well
aware of the value attached to the recognition of the young talents
especially in their effort to nuture the budding scientific generation.
Each award has its own credibility, seen by individual from different
level of education and accepted by different strata of people.

financial constraint but will open their eyes, broaden their mind and
enhance their encouragement to motivate the learning of science in the
family circle.

Teachers of science at the primary and secondary school played the
utmost important role in shaping the future generation, and they too
should be encouraged with appropriate recognition and awards. How
can we expect our future scientists to be born out from an institution
where the teacher themselves are not scientifically inclined and not
innovative enough. They should built the interest together with their
students to explore the scientific world of innovation,even to start with
the simplest project of thinking how to measure the amount of water
used for performing wudhu'(ablution) to a complex project of making a
fountain clock that splash water at certain hour.
