ISLAMMALAKA

In Malaga, as in any other city, diverse communities coexist. One of these communities is the Muslims. Islammalaka is a project with which I have entered the Islamic community of this city, to know and understand Muslims better. It shows how they live their religion here and how they adapt to local life. They study, work, and have fun without neglecting their beliefs. I have seen that they are peaceful, they preach love to God, people and tolerance.
