1. Positive influences (skills and technology)
During the times where there was no technology, there was no civilization. Material development is one of the definitions of civilization. Without technology, new material, building and etc cannot be constructed or produced. This leads to no civilization being born. Example: During the stone age, there were no clothes for human beings to wear. They only moved around being nude. But once the technology of making clothes and dresses were found, people starting wearing clothes and they started being civilized.

2. Religious boost
Cultural development too defines civilization. Religion is one of the mediums which introduced culture to the world. A specific religion has its own taboos, and when these taboos were strongly followed for generations, thus culture was born. Example: Islam strong opposes premarital sex. So as a solution, ‘nikah’ or marriage is introduced to world. Marriage then became not only an Islamic culture but also a world culture. Civilisation is born.

Example: Struggle for properties for life, and at the same time pay the zakat and give sedekah. Thabat wa Murunah Explaination: To be fixed and firm in the principles and flexible in the practice.
Example: Solat is compulsory for Muslims. But for those Muslims who are sick or not feeling well, they are allowed to complete their solat in a sitting or lying down position with their capability.
Explaination: Islam has to be strictly practiced in and every situations. Islam should be differentiated from jahiliyyah and should not be mixed up with the jahiliyyah system.
