Although "Shu'ubiya" is an Arabic word related to " peoples", I find it strange that it means " Persian art and culture is superior to that of the Arabs."

Please persian guys, stop this racism and nonsense.

Shu'ubiya is a well recognised movement in history. Your entry makes no sense. There is a lot on this in the Cambridge History of Islam.

I would have to question the objectivity of this entry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:55, 30 July 2010 (UTC)


Some of the text is copied verbatim from the current Britannica article. --Ghirla-трёп- 10:06, 12 April 2009 (UTC)

Founder of House of Wisdom?[edit]

According to the Article House of Wisdom, it was founded by Al-Ma'mun. I have read the same elsewhere. What is correct? --AHert (talk) 13:42, 3 May 2009 (UTC)[edit]

Isn't this the same person and shouldn't the article therefore be merged? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:07, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

No, there are seven namesakes Al-Mansur (disambiguation). They lived in different epochs, so their articles shall not be merged. Rgds / Mkch (talk) 08:35, 2 September 2009 (UTC)
