The main object of this article is to bring out the historical truth which has been hidden since many eras, Arab sailors had travelled by ship East to west for trading purpose even before the advent of Islam, and they continued to sail after Islam for calling people towards Islam.
Sailing was not easy that time, but Arabs dealt with this art easily by their own experiences, and their good knowledge in this field. The Armed Forces are the military forces,it consists of three professional uniformed services: The ArmyNavy and Air Force.
