Dar Al Hikmah (House of Wisdom) was an amazing cultural iconic place during the Golden Age of Islam. Located in Baghdad, Iraq and established 800 AD this vast institution was a common playground for scholars. A huge focus was the translation of books from every language and constant teaching of one another to further enhance many aspects of society. It was said that the Imam of the time would give a scholar the weight of a book translated in gold once completed, hence “Knowledge is gold.”
