A Tour of Muslim Spain with Haroon Moghul: May 18 - 27, 2012
Friday, May 18th - Sunday, May 27th, 2012
There's so much to be proud of in Islamic history, but so little of who we were, what we accomplished, and how we changed the world is out there. Most of what we hear about Muslim history and culture is incomplete, misleading, or even untrue.
I've designed a journey through Spain's Muslim past and present to show you our amazing history, up close and in person. It'll be a wonderful and unforgettable experience, with exclusive lectures and insights along the way, creating a nine-day experience you can't find anywhere else.
You’ll learn uplifting facts about our history, spend your days and nights with a fun and diverse group of people, and make memories you won't soon forget.
Dar El Salam Travel is proud to present the second annual Splendors of Spain Tour (follow this link for registration and pricing details.)
Prepare to be enchanted by Spain’s breathtaking mountains, unbelievable mosques, luxurious palaces, and tremendous architecture. You’ll climb one of the world’s tallest minarets, built for a mosque where Christopher Columbus is now buried. It’s so high, it has ramps, not stairs--the muezzin had to ride a horse up!
You’ll take a cruise down a river where long ago Muslims fought Vikings. You’ll lose yourself in the Grand Mosque’s endless columns. You’ll stroll through royal gardens inspired by the Qur’anic idea of paradise. Because what Spain’s Muslims built has to be seen to be believed.
This 9-day tour of Seville, Cordoba, and Granada, with side trips to Ronda, the Sierra Nevada, and Madinat az-Zahra, is offered through Dar El Salam Travel. For more information, please contact Dar El Salam Travel.
Note: This trip is open to all, no matter who you are or where you live (visa regulations and the like apply; find out specifics from Dar El Salam Travel.)
The trip is designed to reflect a positive, engaged, proactive Western Muslim identity--we're about Islamic history and culture, and seek to embrace and develop that identity through the places we go and the topics we talk about, but we don't demand any specific levels of religiosity or practice. All are welcome, and last year's trip was incredibly ethnically, professionally, geographically and otherwise diverse, including folks from small children all the way up to retired couples.
