What is Spain without Islamic history? In the 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 interfaith resulting in a multicultural civilization. An era historians refer to as the era of co-existence which reached the apogee of universal human civilization, even Spaniards today still celebrate it as “la convivencia”. This era in Spain 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 that evoked 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 by historians and travelers of all times.

Today over two million Muslims in Spain 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 the Islamic faith. You will find mosques and places set for prayers, halal markets, and restaurants to enjoy all staples unique to this destination. However, people here are not used to see people praying in streets and public places. One has to be sensitive to other perspectives. Bearing in mind that Spain as a country that 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).
