    When the Muslims (Moors) Ruled in Europe. This is a must watch for anyone interested in El Andalus and the contributions made by the Muslims. It’s interesting to note that modern day Spaniards are only now beginning to appreciate their Moorish history which is incredible when you consider the contributions made by the Moors, but at least the process has begun. The Spaniards were intent on hiding the Muslim History and achievements made by Muslims and Islam.

    Assalamualaikum brothers and sisters,
    It's very sad that this part of history of Islam had been hidden in my history lessons in school many years back. I wonder when this is going to b included as part of real history. Here in Singapore non muslims view Muslims as backward and poor people in the world. I had a tough time convincing them cause i could'nt get my hands on the facts. They only know of Roman, Greek, Chinese etc history no matter how much we have improve in the last 20 years.
    The good news is i have tis video to spread around as part of dawah. Alhamdullillah with more videos like these it would ease my point when i have conversations with my non muslims friends insyallah..

    Islam is meant for everyone and not to be kept hidden from the eyes of the world.
    Remember if Muslims don't spread the message, MUSLIM HATERS will spread more fitnah bout Islam.

    One of the reason the Islamic History is not included in the other part of the world because a lot of people don’t want to admit that Islamic science and history effected every part of the world when the Europe use to be in Dark Ages Islam brought education and a lot of science to Europe the Muslims, Christians and Jews scientists were living side by side in peace, and were advancing the sience. But when Queen took over Spain after 700 years under the rule of Muslims they persecuted every Muslim in Spain ... and of course this will not be mentioned in the books

    Thank you brother Ameer for sharing this great Video, it shows some sides of the reality wich was hidden from a lot of people like Ayep who did not learned it in school.:) :frown:

    Who still saying that muslims used violence in Andalus to fulfil what they have done, is either stupid or he hides reality. It's common sense that to achieve like this exploits in history, two things must be present : security(peace) and water.
    So peoples who still saying lies about this period they are cheating and spreading trickery among mankind. Unfortunatly they are alot of like those people who claim being teachers etc. who mislead informations.
    Yes Fatima al-Fihriya built Al-Qarawiyyine university in Fes in Morocco, it's the first University in the world, it's not Al-Azhar as people thought. Al-Qarawiyyine was built in 789 however Al-azhar was built in 970 or 972.
    Other thing, Tarik ibn Ziyad a "berber" was who leads the arab to spain so anyway "Berber" and Arab people were unified even some bad historians search some stupid arguments and count some events (which are true) so as saying lies about muslims. But the problem people don't want to understand that there are bad muslims and good muslims like in all cultures and islam has nothing to do with bad muslims.
    Muslims shouldn't mourn this past, it's only history. They must learn from it but unfortunatly they are doing the same faults : muslims lose their glory in Andalus because they turned to "Red nights" and spending time in music!!!
    So perhaps the history is reapting today with all problems in which they are swiming. :astag:
    So as not being one of this muslims who missed the straight path, be one of the members of turntoislam:)

    This video has some errors. Muhammad did not "found" medina, he effectively reverted a large amount of the population and brought them together as one people. Islam was also not a cult, and religions weren't being experimented with. Rather, Pagan idols represented each tribe, and all tribes accepted this idolatry. Just because they all had different dieties did not mean they were any different: there was no dawah, there was familial ties. This video takes the foreigner's side of the entire event, still shrouding Islam itself in a blanket of fear although accepting the empire as a truly righteous one.

    excellent documentary

    I enjoyed this short film, and I learned very much from it. I would like to truly thank and bless all of the brothers and sisters who pointed out inconsistencies with the documentary. Before we pick it apart, we should remember a few things. This is a highly polished film, and appears to have been made for a mainline television channel. As such, we Muslims are not really the target audience for this film. It appears to have been made by kaffirs for the benefit of other kaffirs. Anything which paints Islam in a positive light should be applauded.
    I will make du'a for everyone connected with this film from writing to lighting and everyone inbetween.
    Thank you for bringing this film to my attention.

    granada, todedo, etc

    Salam Walekoum Shahzad,

    I have been in Granada for some months and i still have contacts there... and Alhambra is 95 % of local economy.

    Toledo (Tolaytela in arabic - arround 60 km south of Madrid) same : historical relegion monuments (of the 3 relegions) representing the most part of center local economy.

    Sevilla, etc and All Andalous region ... really good destinations for those can use my recommandation.

    now i live in paris.

    Wassalam

    this is such nonsense. in this show it states that The Spaniards (under Visigoth rule) "enthusiastically gave up their land for protection". really? thats pretty rare in history, especially when people have to submit to second class status and give up their land. are you going to believe the palestinians welcomed their new overlords as well? give me a break. this show was a bit of propaganda put out to appease certain communities during a time of conflict. the humiliation of the dhimmis is something you can dismiss because bigotry is just accepted.

    The Inquisition....(I don't know how much you know about history) when the King Ferdinand of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castile King of Spain told all Muslims (you know Spain was dominated by Moors for around 700 years if I'm not mistaken), Jews and Gitanos (also called Romany or Gypsies)that if they would not convert to catholicism they had to leave the country .....and that was before, but close to the time of Christopher Columbus first voyage to America.....Following the fall of the arab stronghold of Granada on January 2, 1492, there was a renewed impetus to remove Jews from Spain. On March 31, 1492, the Edit of Expulsion was signed. The deadline for Jews (and muslims) to leave Spain was August 3, 1492. Columbus and his crew boarded their vessels before midnight, and on the August 3rd sailed before sunrise.....So....according to some people who trace back the roots of their lastnames, (spanish, latinos living in the caribbean and South America), they found out that their lastnames come from those Moors and Jews that did came to America.....Yes, they don't teach that at school.....but those are the rumors somepeople know.

    And well,..this might sound funny to some of you and I don't know if its true but I want to share it with you:

    Some people even say Columbus was a jew himself and that he knew the earth was round because he read that passage of the bible that says :"It is he that sitteth upon the globe of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as locusts: he that stretcheth out the heavens as nothing, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in". ....Isaias 40:22.....hehe..

    Somehow I tend to believe that it's true.....after all, the bible is divided in two: Old testament and New Testament, being Old testament the history of the people of Israel also (Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Ismael, etc) and the new testament referring to the new Christians....so...maybe we can't give much credit to the "christian's book"...but yes , some credit to the "Old Testament"...and Isaias 40:22 belongs to the Old testament.
