So whereas the Qu'ran prohibits the consumption of alcohol, and arguably by extension its manufacture, it is remarkable that the arabic scientists in question were allowed to perform their investigations without being persecuted (actually they were encouraged and supported).
Exactly my point. If Islam/Muslims had anything to do with it, it would have been prohibited. But the original poster was trying to claim the distillation as an achievement of Islam. Just an example of painting a different picture of what is actually true.
