Primarily a physicist, Shaikh Mohammad Razaullah Ansari has always been passionate about history of exact sciences, researching and working towards establishing it as a discipline in India. Razaullah Ansari and historian S. Ifran Habib discuss two questions in an engaging conversation, the extent of astronomy in medieval India and the growth of Islamic studies in India.

The starting point of the Zij astronomy in India was the translation of first the Sanskrit and then the Greek texts into Arabic.

The Arabic bibliographical tradition recorded the name of an Indian astronomer Kankah-al-Hindi (c. ), who was not known to Indian sources at all. The Study of Astronomy During the medieval period, scientists in the Islamic world made many contributions to the field of astronomy. While their work was based on ancient sources from Greece, Iran, and India, they updated methods for measuring and calculating the movement of heavenly bodies, and continued to develop models of the universe and the movements of the planets within it.
