Why Many Spaniards Convert to Islam

After waiting more than 500 years, Spanish Muslims finally succeeded in building their own mosque in the shadow of the Alhambra, one of the symbols of Islamic power in Europe's past.

The opening was planned to be carried out by representatives of Spanish Muslims. Broadcast live on Al-Jazeera television, a muezzin will climb the minaret of the Grand Mosque of Granada and make the call to prayer for the first time in 5 centuries. According to the builder, this mosque is a symbol of the revival of Islam in Europe and Spain, a place where there is a legacy of Islamic glory.
