Islamic Halal Trips in Spain
In late 8th century, Europe experienced one of its greatest periods of cultural and spiritual enlightenment. Over eight hundred years of Islamic presence in Spain, Muslims, Jews and Christians lived together and prospered in a thriving multicultural civilization. An era historians refer to as co-existence which reached the apogee of universal human civilization, even Spaniards today still celebrate it as "La Convivencia". This era has created an atmosphere where remarkable scholars and thinkers of different faiths to work side by side and share at no discretion collective knowledge in the benefit of all mankind to made lasting contributions in such areas as poetry, art, architecture, music, science, agriculture, medicine, engineering, algebra, navigation, textiles, culinary and even technologies that have shaped the world we live in today. Initially this civilization flourished in Muslim Spain or in better words the Moors of Spain as they are referred to.
Today Spain is a catholic country and Spaniards never discriminate the other faiths. Over two million Muslims live side by side with their fellow Christians in harmony and mutual respect. The Muslim community respects as well the norms of prayers and has it infrastructure well set for visitors of Islamic faith. You will find mosques in Spain for Muslims to pray and practice the islamic rituals, halal markets and restaurant to enjoy all staples unique to this land. However people here are not used to see people praying in streets and public places. One has to be sensitive to others perspective. Bearing in mind that Spain as a country had separated the religion from the politics and law, we can see that is nothing against Islam, but in general is not well seen to pray (Christian or Muslim) in a place which is not a temple (church, mosque, etc).
