For a millennium, from the seventh to the seventeenth century, Muslims controlled the intercontinental and transoceanic trade between Europe and the Indian Ocean. While doing this, they also created one of the greatest civilizations of the world.
Janet Devlin's insight:

"It was a humbling experience to read the product of such a remarkable feat of scholarship. It is all at once an exploration in analytic history and a comprehensive text of Islamic finance theory and application. It is also one of the most succinct renditions of evolution of Islamic finance embedded in a comprehensive account of particularities of economies as diverse as Malaysia and Turkey. This is a unique contribution to Islamic finance and Islamic economic history. It has been a rewarding learning experience. It is truly a breathtaking effort."
