When Ibn-e-Sina was born, the Islamic Arabic culture was at its height. Since the Arabic language was the mode of communication in this era, Ibn-e-Sina studied Arabic from Muhammad al-Barqi al-Khwarizmi. As soon as he had learnt Arabic (his mother tongue was Persian), his father appointed a teacher of the Holy Quran and another of literature for him.  He had learnt the Holy Quran and Arabic literature before the age of 10. Next he developed leaning towards philosophy, geometry and mathematics. He was then attracted towards medical science and devoted himself to it for a short period, until he surpassed all the scholars of science of his age. Nuh Ibn-e-Mansur Samani was the ruler of Bukhara at that time.   He was affected by a disease that physicians failed to cure. Ibn-e-Sina was by then a well-known scientist and physician. Ibn-e-Sina treated Nuh lbn-e-Mansur Samani. So he became very close to the ruler of Bukhara. Ibn-e-Sina asked Nuh Ibn-e-Mansur Samani give him permission to enter his great, well-known libraries.

He was the pioneer of the minute and graphic description of different parts of body. His other great work was "Kitab-Al-Shifa". This book covered a wide range of fields like philosophy, science, physics, mathematics, metaphysics, ethics, economics and politics.
