  1. I’d sure love to hear more details about this adventure. What took you there? What are you doing? What are your goals on this trip? Very, very exciting, mashaAllah. Such history! Such conflict.

  2. I’m supposed to be posting more about it but haven’t yet! Basically I’m here to study the music, particularly the ilahije (Bosnian-style nasheed, very different from Arabic and other styles). I’ll try to post more about it later, though. I think my blogging motivation was killed by facebook!
