Theresa Lyons has her own radio show at one of the most prominent radio channels of the Bekasi city in Indonesia. Theresa is so down to earth, she is mostly found operating her Chinese van restaurant when she is not writing a book or broadcasting on the radio.
Theresa recently completed writing her first book and it is a biography of the man she considers to be the greatest Persian polymath of all times – Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi. Theresa’s book starts with the phrase “There is something about the land of Tehran and the areas surrounding it that has made it produce so many great people throughout the centuries”.
Theresa says that along with being one of the most prominent Persians, Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi could also be the most legendary Muslim to have ever lived. Theresa says that the writings of no other woman or man could ever touch Theresa the way Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi’s did.
Theresa says that we wouldn’t be wrong to call Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi the hippocrates of the Islamic golden age.
Theresa doubts that Zakariya had some Sindhi and Arab blood as well running through his veins as well although there is no reference or proof or mention of the same anywhere.
Theresa says that there is no denying that Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi was a pioneer of Ophthalmology but the belief that he was the first to recognize the reaction of the eye’s pupil to light is completely wrong. Theresa claims that many Chinese masters had already observed the same long ago.
Theresa also doubts that Muhammad ibn Zakariya al-Razi used to gamble a lot to get some relief from everyday stress. Theresa says that if he did, he would have loved the Indonesian Agen dominoQQ of the present day.
