    Its more like art of different nations that has some Islamic scripture on it. Islam doesn't have a specific "art" style as it is a religion for all nations and people. Islam is a way of life not a culture or art. You can be a Chinese Muslim and perfectly maintain your art and culture. You can be an American Muslim and perfect maintain your art and culture. As a Muslim from Chechniya we have a unique culture compared to Arabs and other nations, we just incorporate Islamic practices, values and laws into our lives while maintaining out culture and art form.

    Non Practicing Muslims are generally very nice and often kind. I've been to many Islamic republics, lived in the middle east for 5 years. This is a very cautious and polite video, better safe than sorry. 👍🏻

    The opening statement by the narrator as he stands outside the famous mosque in Mali, is typical of religion. Capable of great works of art (and even charity) on one hand and taken to the horribly lawless depths of fanaticism and genocide on the other, IS religion.

    When i see places like the Taj Mahal, I don't see the things that man describes. I see suffering. I see waste. I see misappropriation of society. I see usury.

    Post-Modernist criticism says each/every Translation is another Creation, not only from one language into another but from one individual to another - i.e. - individual differences in understanding the Quran, Tanakh, the Gospels and so forth are NEVER the same & even a re-reading differs - hence, God cannot reduce Himself to a book or written form, because even correct instructions on how to reach Him require Him to OPEN the mind miraculously and the only proof of this is not thru' belief in any man - however holy - but in actual experience.
