South of Spain Muslim Tour

A small group tour to Spain not to miss. Al Andalous is the old name Muslims have given to the whole Iberian Peninsula. Today Andalusia is the southernmost territory of Spain; and the part of the Iberian Peninsula that is most quintessentially Moorish with Islamic legendary history and culture. Although some see it as the popular image of Spain, a land of good lively ambiance, tapas and great food, flamenco music and dance, ruined castles, and sumptuous palaces. Muslim visitors, in fact, see it as the cradle of a great place where Islam once thrived to bring an unprecedented civilization that shaped Europe and the western mind. A civilization of pioneers in all sciences and humanities, all under the umbrella of inclusive schools of thought where the Christians Jews, and Muslims lived to thrive as great human beings sharing knowledge. It was an era of mutual respect for higher achievements, an era Muslims and non-Muslims are still reminiscent of as the era of “Convevencia” Coexistence. The eight hundred years of Muslim ruling in most western empires has left lasting imprints that you can still see today not only in Muslim monuments and historic sites but in the ritual and beliefs of its people. As their ancestors before, they have a great appreciation for the arts and respect for beauty, more importantly, an everlasting zest for life. Fundamental ethics of Islam…

This one-week Muslim tour of Andalusia south of Spain is not only to show the remnants of Islam here but also the daily life as an overall with the reality of a small Muslim community that still exists here. I would not say it is only holding to a nostalgic time, but organically thriving. Come and join us on this Islamic tour of Andalusia, South of Spain. You will fall in love with Spain
