Don't use incorrect information.

    The Safavid Dynasty played a very large role in art, even the Shah's practiced different forms of art ranging from painting to poetry. Under the Safavids rule the arts flourished and advanced in many ways. The shiite form of the Safavids shaped the social hierarchies and gender roles.The Shah was at the top of the hierarchy followed by the bureaucracy, then craftsman, then peasants or merchants. Men were expected to work in the fields or go to work, he was expected to do all the manual labor. Women were expected to stay at home, cook, clean, and take care of the children. When Abbas I died there was a pressure to conform to traditional beliefs of the religion, women were forced to give up freedom, wear the viel, and live in seclusion. (Shapour Ghasemi, Iran Chamber Society. 2001-2011, http://www.iranchamber.com/index.php). The women also had pre-determined marriages where they did not have a say in who the got to marry. (Citizens were expected to pray often and go to mosques daily. Rural life was filled with mostly farming and manual labor.

    and women. They studied almost everything.The Islam empires were known for there extensive knowledge in medicine, so the Safavids were very good doctors.

The art of the Safavids was very advanced, the Safavids created almost every kind of art including the art of books.

    The Safavid Dynasty produced great architectural buildings and mosques. Mosques were the building that showed the true architectural talent of the Dynasty. The mosque that truly demonstrated the talent of the Dynasty in my opinion, is the Mosque of Shaykh Lutfallah. The Safavid mosques demonstrated their power, wealth and commitment to their religion.
    {shaykhlutfallah.jpeg} The Mosque of Shaykh Lutfallah was built in 1590 (Found at Artstor) {Imam_Al-Kazim_AS.jpeg} This is the Al-Kazimiyyah Shrine, it was origanly built in 799 but was reconstructed in 1508 by Abbas I.

    The education in China over a few centuries grew, and the number of scholars in China far outnumbered the Muslims and Christians. Over the years the Chinese had invented some of the most important discoveries of the modern age, such as the compass, gunpowder, and paper money. The Chinese studied chemisty, literature, math, and a decent amount of history, for which they are not as famous for as the Greek historians such as Thucydides.
