Islamic culture has had a significant impact on divine religions and convert to these religions. Because it is a rich culture, it transcends its borders and covers all humanity. Therefore, it does not seem surprising that such a culture overlooks its territory and affects others, they also, in their turn, are influenced by their search for their worldly and related to the world of the hereafter
Researches on "Dante's Divine Comedy" suggests that this work has been influenced by Islamic culture, it was saturated from its springs, and subsequently Dante's work stands on the height of works before and after himself. But this influx began after the West became part of the achievements of the Merajameh. It also caused the West to have a strong connection with Islamic culture in the Middle Ages, and European intellectuals were also trying to exploit the origins of this culture. Therefore, it can be said that Dante was influenced by both the ancestor of the culture and the medieval culture, therefore, it seems to be influenced by the same Islamic culture that ruled during the Middle Ages.
The present article seeks to criticize the book The Impact of Islamic Culture on Dante's Divine Comedy by Salah Fazl in its form and content. From the matching of the evidence mentioned in this book on the one hand, and the verse in the Holy Qur'an and the Merajnameh on the other, it appears that there is a significant similarity between them, which indicates that, the influence of Islamic culture on Dante's Divine Comedy has not been ineffective.
