  1. Salaams Abdur Rahman Bhai,

    Jazaak Allah Khair for sharing such an informative series……..i have watched only a few of these awe-inspiring videos as of now, but inshaAllah, soon i hope to watch them all.
    i have seen quite a few movies/documentaries in this reference earlier, but the presentation of these videos is undoubtedly par excellence.

  4. Wa alaikum salaam Noor,

    Well, by that time (the 16th century), the last Moorish kingdom/emirate in Granada had already fallen (in 1492). However, it really rather depends what you mean by ‘Moor’. This is because that term was often used indiscriminately in Europe to refer to any Muslim, as was ‘Turk’. These terms as used in Europe didn’t really refer to a set ethnicity.

    Thus, references to ‘Moor’ may also actually be referring to the Ottoman Turks. This isn’t exactly my area, but I hope this helps.

    For a brief overview of the period (and helpful notes), see Ira Lapidus’ History of Islamic Societies.

    Ma’as salama,

  5. This is the most horrible website I ever seen. I mean come on, you guys don’t have no information about the Moors. So I advise you to change and edited your website before you get more emails like this. I don’t mind helping you guys either.

    1. Peace McLovin Lee,

      This is an old website, and this post is almost 6 years old. This series of posts were only set up to provide a space to share the video documentary offered. Sorry you didn’t enjoy it.

      1. I’m super sorry for the outragous comment I left. I should have look more carfully into the site. please accept my apology and forgive me for what I said. Hope I didn’t make you upset or anything.
