Shukran Abdullah Borek
Our tour guide was a man named Abdullah Borkek. He is a German Muslim and Islamic scholar who speaks, reads and writes in Arabic and has lived in Bahrain for 32 years. We could not have asked for a more generous host at the Grand Mosque. I could have spent hours there asking him questions. We took extensive literature home with us and left having learned very much about Islam, which means "peace".
