en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_algebra
There are three theories about the origins of Arabic Algebra. The first emphasizes Hindu influence, the second emphasizes Mesopotamian or PersianSyriac influence and the third emphasizes Greek influence. Many scholars believe that it is the result of a combination of all three sources.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebra
Algebra (from Arabic "aljabr", literally meaning "reunion of broken parts") is one of the broad parts of mathematics, together with number theory, geometry and analysis. In its most general form, algebra is the study of mathematical symbols and the rules for manipulating these symbols; it is a unifying thread of almost all of mathematics.

Algebra doesn’t have one single origin point  it developed over time and in multiple places, with many mathematicians contributing. One of those contributors was an 8thcentury scholar from Baghdad named Muhammad ibn Musa alKhwarizmi.

Other writers have derived the word from the Arabic particle al (the definite article), and gerber, meaning "man." Since, however, Geber happened to be the name of a celebrated Moorish philosopher who flourished in about the 11th or 12th century, it has been supposed that he was the founder of algebra, which has since perpetuated his name.

Today I found out the origins of the word “Algebra”.. It all started back around 825 AD when a man named Abū ʿAbdallāh Muḥammad ibn Mūsā alKhwārizmī, the “father” of Algebra, wrote a book called “Kitab aljabr wa almuqabalah”.

represents an essential contribution to another algebra which aimed to study curves by means of equations, thus inaugurating the beginning of algebraic geometry. Let us give other examples of the development of Arabic mathematics.

Algebra had been developed earlier by mathematicians in Greece and India, but alKhwarizmi's book, as the first comprehensive treatment of it, became a medieval bestseller. The Arabic word for "the restoring" in the book's title is aljabr, which is the source of our word algebra.

…Indian scholars developed the socalled HinduArabic numerals—the base10 notation subsequently adopted by the world’s mathematical and civil communities (see numerals and numeral systems). Although more number representation than number theory, these numerals have prevailed due to their simplicity and ease of use.

The Islamic Empire established across Persia, the Middle East, Central Asia, North Africa, Iberia and parts of India from the 8th Century onwards made significant contributions towards mathematics. They were able to draw on and fuse together the mathematical developments of both Greece and India.
