Use Your Imagination
Hello once again dear reader. Today I'd like each & every one of you to tap into the imaginative part of your mind...and keep reading the following information.
The following is pretty interesting information about the Islamic World...and I say "world" because we are of one people, one language (the Koran is in Arabic) and one God.
There are 55 Islamic nations in the world. That's it?! Yep, thats it...but think of it this way...imagine all of those 55 nations are actually one great empire spanning over multiple continents. Remember our empire back before the crusades? Ok now that you see this empire...imagine the following numbers.
As of 2003 the muslim population has reached a staggering 1.70 billion (approx.). Imagine all those people are of ONE nation...what do you see in your mind?
McArabian posted an interesting article about the restrictions on Haj. And I posted this in tandem with the useful information she posted on her blog. Thanks McArabian for the useful info, I missed that one in the papers! :)
For any of you who are interested in the facts I posted above and my reference to the old islamic empire I mentioned..don't hesitate to check out the following links:
And last but not least I have been reading a great book called: A History of the Arab Peoples by Albert Hourani
I hope that interested you...food for thought everyone :)
