AbstractThe research included the fruits of the products of the Arab geographical heritage, which is a key link in the development of Arab and international civilization at the same time. The scientific contribution of Arab Muslims specializing in marine geology has been limited to them and has received little attention from our researchers at the present time. Their interest remains in the study of science, knowledge and scientific vocabulary related to the science of navigation and its arts, which necessitated taking care of this artistic legacy of our Arab heritage. Al-Aseel Studies on the life of the pearl of the sea, Ibn Majid, have been characterized by his long history, scientific career, long experience in navigation and marine sciences, and his active contribution to the mapping of the marine map, Which has enriched the heritage of Arab geopolitics with a great scientific wealth that resulted in the formation of a maritime school that adopted a pure approach in studying the marine map and its varied uses and development by the most famous masters such as Ibn Majid, Sulaiman Al-Muhri and Barzak Sharhabar, and their role in refining the concepts and terminology related to the map, Sports and its technical elements and its design with contents and scientific and practical contents and technical methods less similar to the triangle of their Arab environmental reality.
Therefore, the son of Majid will remain this great man, one of the most important geniuses and founders of the pioneers, leaving behind many of his works, writings and books related to the science of navigation and astronomy and the first phase of the navigation compass in the modern sense and light the paths of sailors West while most of them feared the sea and not aware of secrets and knowledge only the forerunner The Arab Sea, which tried some sources and pens to distort his career and his long history in this area through his assistance to the Portuguese leader (Vasco de Gama) in the period (1497-1499) to the safe sea route between the eastern coasts of Africa and India
In conclusion, I hope that my research will be a prelude to further research by other researchers
