“Our collective Islamic Culture is rich, varied and important to be shared. Traditionally it has been expressed through calligraphy and architecture. But the culture of Islam is the civilization of Muslims over time as reflected in our customs, arts and conveniences. Since Muslims themselves are part of many nations and thus have many ‘ethnic’ cultures – our Islamic culture enhances and furthers the literature, theater, music and art of each individually.”
