Does Islam come to impose a totalising culture? How do we deal with the dynamic tension between universals of Islam and the particulars of our communities? What can we learn from the history of European Muslims for our lives today?

"This place is an absolute gem. It’s a hidden treasure. I feel so lucky to have come on this trip. I’ve learnt so much. Given that I live in Europe I’m surprised we don’t know the history of this place and the connection that we have and the affiliation we have as Muslims to this place."
