Country: Egypt


Dear Sir,
Egypt is full of Islamic tourism, & it's capital Cairo is called the city of the thousand minaret. You can visit Al Moez St. where you can find more than 25 Islamic monuments, if you start the tour from Bab Zuwaila &then visit El Azhar mosque, by crossing the street through a tunnel you can visit Al Aqmar Mosque, the complex of al sultan Qalawun and el Hakim mosque. Then you will find a lot of Sabils (drinking water source) and Kuttabs (Religious schools) to visit. Finaly you will arrive to Bab El Futuh (Fatimid gate). you can spend a free time for relaxation at the oldest coffee shop there (Mirrors café) known as el Fishawe café as well; which was built 200 years ago.
You also could visit the Citadel of Saladin one of the world's greatest monuments of medieval warfare, built at 12th century to fortify Cairo against Crusaders. It contains the Alabaster Mosque it is the most popular mosque in Cairo after Al Azhar ; which built in 1848 AD, imitating Blue Mosque of Istanbul, under the reign of Muhammad Ali Pasha, whose tomb is located within the mosque, it is named Alabaster mosque due to the use of alabaster for coating its interior and exterior walls.
Near to The Citadel of Saladin you can find The Mosque-Madrassa of Sultan Hassan the mosque was considered remarkable for its fantastic size and innovative architectural components. It was designed to include schools for all four of the Sunni schools of thought: Shafi'i, Maliki, Hanafi and Hanbali.
Not to mention the Mosque of Al Sayeda Zainab, Mosque of Al Sayedah Nafisah, Mosque of Al Sayedah Aysha, Mosque of Al Hussein, each one is considered an Architectural masterpiece.
All this in Cairo and more. But if you want to go out of Cairo you can find remarkable Mosques in all over Egypt each one has its own history.
& if you are looking for Halal Tourism, Egypt is the right place to have it.
