After the glorious ages during the Andalusian civilization which was characterized by science, scientists and their works, Andalusia became a destination for science and literature led by researchers and scholars from all over the world where they aimed to get scientific benefits. The fates, however, had it that the wonderful legend of prosperity and progress should end in all ways of life, «The Kingdom of Granada» handed over the last Andalusia kingdoms to «Fernando and his wife Elisabella» in 897 AH / 1492 AD, by the «Sons of the Red», which the researchers called the last era of Andalusia. Hence the research was entitled the «Morisco era» relative to the Moriscos, who were named after the settlement with the «Mudejar» brothers in the year 1492 AD – 907 AH, and I believe that this put the «Morisco era» as the last Andalusian age, a new ninth age added to Andalusia; nine ages, not eight.Why the Morisco era? It is not reasonable for a people to perish by changing their own king or authority, although they lived about twenty years with the various types of psychological oppression, physical torment, displacement, exclusion, expulsion, and murder. In spite of all this, the impoverished class left us with colors of literature and forms of religious knowledge that demonstrated their adherence to their «human identity», including homeland, religion, and language reflecting their level of knowledge. At that time, the inquisitions have worked hard to dissolve this identity. Their heritage has become evident describing their pain, oppression, dedication and aspiration to preserve their identity.
