AL-ANDALUS EXPERIENCE

DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF MUSLIM SPAIN

Visit Andalusia and Spain, by the hand of first and second generation Muslims in Andalusia. We deliver the best value group tours, routes & experiences, along with other travelers from a worldwide origin, or privately at your own pace and style.

The mystery surrounding Islam’s introduction to Spain is one echoed by many historians. It is openly acknowledged that much of Al-Andalus’ history has been either hidden or re-written in the wake of the Spanish Inquisition. This lack of historical transparency continues to inspire researchers, historians, and local enthusiasts to investigate and reveal this particular rich yet ‘covered’ history.

Al-Andalus Experience originally emerged partly to a lack of service that goes into solving logistic problems for Muslim travelers in Spain. A great part of our team and collaborators are of Muslim faith and religion, hence we appreciate the needs and interests of Muslim travelers. In spite of this, we would like to offer our tours, activities and excursions to an intercultural public, such as the one which originally inhabited al-Andalus. In this way we  fulfill our aim as a travel agency in securing a ‘Cultural Bridge’ throughout these enriching experiences in Spain.

Travel back into the times of Al-Andalus & Iberia and staying within the Golden Age Cities of al-Andalus. Carefully planned travel routes, in a chronological order according to historical relevance, taking account for leisure and even shopping! Our routes invite you to discover the historical centers of the main cities in the heart of Al-Andalus.

 Ayer se me agrietó el corazón de forma importante; dejando pasar el ser interno más profundo a este mundo. Pude ver a todos los humanos como iguales, ante la responsabilidad de saber vivir y sacar lo mejor de nosotros mismos; pude ver que siempre han habido personas perdidas de sigo mismas y poseídas por el enfado o cualquier injusticia que quieren ajusticiar a través de violencia injustificable, pude ver personas orgullosas cada cual de sus banderas e insignias, y pude ver políticos ondeando banderas e insignias típicas del Siglo XVI; pero ante todo pude ver #amor por las personas fallecidas y todas la personas de buena voluntad, confundidas y asustadas, todas las personas que SI valoran a diario la vida y personas ajenas; las personas que tratamos solamente de #vivir una #vida #digna de las bendiciones que nos ofrece la misma vida. #somosunasolavida #unsolocorazon #aunquenolosepamos #otracosaesperderse #barcelonatambienestaenmi #amobarcelona  #Goodmorning #selamatpagi ! #Welcome #selamatdatang #flyworldtravelntours Perhaps our favorite #Malay#TO  Saying hi from #Sevilla! #lasvueltasdanmuchavida
 818: El emir Al-Hakam reprime la revuelta del Arrabal El 25 de marzo de 818 el emir Al-Hakam reprimió con violencia una de las muchas revueltas a las que se había acostumbrado su reinado, esta vez en el Arrabal de Córdoba. El Arrabal de Córdoba era una zona densamente poblada que había crecido al otro lado del río Guadalquivir a raíz del puente construido por Hisham I. Convivía en esta zona gente muy pobre con una minoría de alfaquíes malekitas que trabajaban como maestros de escuela. Los alfaquíes eran intérpretes de las leyes, lo que en el mundo musulmán significa ser jurista y a la vez teólogo, y los de Córdoba habían sido además asesores palaciegos en tiempos de Hisham I. Defenestrados por Al-Hakam y en un entorno en el que era fácil rentabilizar descontentos, los alfaquíes del Arrabal vertieron su propaganda sobre sus vecinos, culpando al emir de excederse en los tributos, alejarse de la ortodoxia religiosa y actuar como un déspota. La llama prendió en el año 805 y el emir tuvo que ejecutar a 72 personas, entre ellas algunos notables alfaquíes. Sobre estas brasas nunca apagadas se fraguó la revuelta de 818. Encendió la mecha la muerte en el zoco de un armero a manos de un mameluco de la guardia personal del emir. El barrio se levantó en armas y marchó hacia el palacio del emir. Éste mandó a sus hombres arrasar el Arrabal e incendiarlo y la muchedumbre, al ver arder sus casas, marchó a salvar lo que pudiera. A la salida del puente les esperaba, cimitarra en mano, la guardia del emir. La represalia fue atroz y Al-Hakam ordenó crucificar boca abajo a más de 300 cabecillas. De los supervivientes, un gran número decidió salir de la Península y olvidar lo sucedido en mejores tierras. Algunos se asentaron en Fez, pero otro grupo llegó hasta Alejandría, ciudad que llegaron a ... leer más: blogs.libertaddigital.com  #celebratingmercy #stopislamophobia Hong-Wu (also known by his given name Zhū Yuánzhāng) was the Emperor of China between 1368 – 1398 CE. He was the first Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, leading an Army that conquered the country and defeated away the Mongol-led Yuan Dynasty. Despite being a non-Muslim, Hong-Wu ordered the construction of several mosques in Nanjing, Yunnan, Guangdong and Fujian. He rebuilt the Jinjue Mosque in Nanjing and large numbers of Hui (Muslim Chinese) people moved to the city during his rule. He had around 10 Muslim generals in his army, including Chang Yuchun, Lan Yu, Ding Dexing, Mu Ying, Feng Sheng and Hu Dahai. In addition, Hong-Wu’s spouse, Empress Ma, descended from a Muslim family while he was originally a member of a Muslim rebel group led by Guo Zhixin. Emperor Hong-Wu wrote a 100 word eulogy praising Islam, Allah and the Prophet Muhammad which he had placed in the mosques which he ordered to be built. The eulogy is in the form of a poem, each verse containing 4 words (characters) and 4 syllables. In the translation below I have strayed away from trying to keep the 4 word per verse translation in favour of a more literal translation which conveys the full meaning in flowing English. The One-Hundred Word Eulogy: Since the creation of the Universe, God had decreed to appoint, This great faith-preaching man, From the West he was born, He received the Holy Scripture, A Book of thirty parts, To guide all creation, Master of all Rulers, Leader of Holy Ones, With Support from Above, To Protect His Nation, With five daily prayers, Silently hoping for peace, His heart towards Allah, Empowering the poor, Saving them from calamity, Seeing through the darkness, Pulling souls and spirits, Away from all wrongdoings, A Mercy to the Worlds, Traversing the ancient majestic path, Vanquishing away all evil, His Religion Pure and True, Muhammad, The Noble & Great one.  #selamatdatang #Malaysia! #Welcome to #Madrid, #Spain!
