My coworker has grown fat and ugly, so now she's suddenly Muslim and wears a hijab, thus slightly improving her appearance.

And for a more modern example, countless lives are saved every year by the Islamic policy in Saudi Arabia which prevents women from driving.
If you go back centuries you'll find that most cultures have have made significant contributions to science. Islam punches above its weight—in medieval times. But in recent years? Waaaay behind. I'd cite some statistics if I wasn't on my phone. As it is, a sentence from Wikipedia will have to suffice.

In recent years, the lagging of the Muslim world in science is manifest in the disproportionately small amount of scientific output as measured by citations of articles published in internationally circulating science journals, annual expenditures on research and development, and numbers of research scientists and engineers.[37]
[37] is an essay by Abdus Salam, who won the 1979 Nobel Prize for Physics. He's one of only three Muslim Nobel laureates in the sciences.

Your last sentence indicates you might be trolling, but I thought this was worth posting regardless.
