Muslim Inventions

Coffee Berries
- Ummi likes it
- Its used almost as much as oil
- Before pubs were made people would go to coffee houses (Europe)
-A Muslim Morracan shepherd noticed whenever his sheep used to eat certain berries they would get excited and jump around, he took them and people boiled them to make coffee
-People drank it to stay awake at night to make Dhikr
-It spread through the Muslim world during Hajj
-Coffee houses became places of knowledge (politic and arts etc were discussed by intellectuals there) and were then called Penny Universties because the coffee cost a penny  and you could learn a lot from the people who were there.
