why Islamic golden age did not reach technology we have toda or in the previous century? was it because they did not have capitalisM?

some believe it lasted 5-6 centuries some believe it lated 3 centuries but 2 centuries would have been enough to advance to the technology we have if they really were as advanced in science as they are cracked up to be? so, why did they not reach technolog we have now or in 20th century?

or did the western world reach that level as a consequence of iSlamic golden age? what if Islamic golden age did not happen? could the west have reached the same level?

The Caliphate fragmented, and then the Mongols invaded.

Capitalism would have been terrible for the Islamic world.
