Mongol forces under Genghis Khan’s grandson, Hulagu brought the Abbasid caliph Al Muatism to his knees along with his caliphate. The once mighty empire is now a shadow of its former self, the once biggest and most technologically advanced city in the world Baghdad was raised to the ground, bringing the Islamic golden age to an end. The Euphrates turning black for three days from the sheer amount of books dumped into it from the House of wisdom, setting Human Civlization back by at least 500 years.

I feel regret for destoying their science & technology but I don't see  it as golden age of Islam , it wasn't a golden age for our Imams ,Ahlul Bayt (عليه السلام) & Shias that all of them were under oppression of anti Shia people also origin of Wahhabism is an inheritance from them & at the end golden age for all Muslims will come when Imam Mahdi (aj) reappears & rest of eras are like a blink of eye or a short flash in darkness in comparison to his era.

You’re right, but it wasn’t the abbasids themselves who turned the era into the golden age of Islam but it was the knowledge of the Persians and andalusians who did it. The city of Granada in Muslim Spain was the largest and most populated in Europe at that time, and there were more books in the Abbasid caliphate than there were in the entirety of Europe. And you must know that during this time, the abbasids just controlled half of Iraq and that’s it, their empire but not caliphate crumbled years prior, nobody denies their oppression but the mongol invasion was a dark age for Muslims, with the death of the Abbasid caliph the Muslims would never see another caliph again until 400 years later with the rise of the ottomans, and the mongols killed 90% of the population of Iran, known as the khwarezmian empire back then
