Consider visiting this museum and others around the country that have exhibits of Islamic art. This is part of our heritage as well. Muslims that come to America bring with them a wealth of history and culture. And those of us who have con/reverted get a flavor of this through exhibits like this. Part of being a Muslim American is studying the past in immigrants country of origin and of seeing how those influences can grow, expand and promote Islam in America. Many people who came to the US and Europe brought with them the music and art they loved so dearly. In fact the great Sufi Hazrat Inayat Khan was a renowned musician in his native India. He not only spread the Sufi Message in his travels but also revealed to the western world the style of Indian and Sufi Music.
