Abstract: 

In 336 A.H., the Fatimid government of Egypt nominated the Kalbid family to Sicilian Islamic government. Sicilia (Islamic Saqliyah) was the largest islands of Mediterranean Sea which captured by Muslims in 8th/2nd century. The Aghlabids of North Africa took its Islamic Imarate for the first time. Kalbids government over it continued for almost a century. Their court was a favorite destination for Muslim Ulema and philosophers and Palermo (Islamic Blarm) enjoyed a brilliant economic and commercial growth among western Islamic centers. A look on Islamic sources which survived those days shows that, beside the current attention to some knowledge like Islamic jurisprudences, traditions and philology, there has been a noticeable accent on rational sciences too. Among these, medicine, philosophy, theology, geometry, astronomy and mathematics are the most favorite ones. No doubt, this excellent growth of rational sciences had its proportionate reasons which tolerant nature of Kalbid religious policy as well as their special favor to Muslim Ulema was the most important ones. There were also some Muslim Ulema and philosophers who conveyed the legacy of Sicilian school of Islamic sciences to other parts of muslim world through migration and traveling.
