What Is The Connection Between Muslim Faith And Culture?

Islam is a form of cultural imperialism in which the religion and culture of the seventh-century Arabia are raised to the status of divine law. In the West, there is a wall of separation between church and state. For instance, religious organizations can not set speed limits or determine public taxes. In Islam, this divide between sacred and secular doesn’t exist. This is why when you visit an American who converts to Islam they are wearing Arab clothing, listening to Arab music and eating Arab food. They will even say meal prayers in Arabic although they do not know the language.
