“"they did hire muslim architects and craftsmen to build elaborate towers and churches."
Again, site credible sources. And what does the word Sherif have to do with anything? Muslims had been in Spain since the conquest of 712. So the idea of an Arabic word being adopted hardly seems surprising. Furthermore the etymology of Shariff also can be attributed to english origens. But so what? My point is that making fantasticly false claims like this hurts the dignity of the Muslim people. Muslims have many historic things to be proud of .. say the building of the Taj Mahal as just one example. This easily refuted article simply demeans the actual historical accomplishements of the Muslim people. Focusing on the real accomplishments of the Muslim people is vastly superior to fabricating a false history.”
