Mansa Musa set off on his hajj and traveled thousands of miles through deserts, and strange cities to get to Mecca. Although this was a very religious journey, was this pilgrimage really all for religious purposes? Religion may have been a large motivating factor for this trip, but Mansa Musa did not journey on his hajj just for religious purposes. There were many other motivating factors for why Mansa Musa took this journey. Some motives were to set up better trade for the future, and gain popularity for his kingdom Mali and himself.
Though this new wave of immigrants did come seeking a better and new life, there was something a little different that separated them from the pilgrims. The fight for better a economic outcome in life, and overall better opportunities for those immigrants and their families. A shift from religious freedom to economic opportunities was the big difference between these waves. As these waves of immigrants came to America, primarily the North East coast, they encountered difficulties in the areas of urban lifestyle. This can be exemplified in both a documentary and book
If it wasn’t for them, the U.S economy wouldn’t be where it stands now. In recent discussions of whether immigrants should be deported, there has been sides where immigration would be good for our country and others disagree. Some believe that immigrants should be allowed to stay in our country, because they believe our economy wouldn’t be good without them and many businesses rely on immigrants working for them. On the other hand, the other side believe that immigrants are overpopulating the U.S and don’t have the money to support all of these immigrants (education/jobs.) Immigrants should be allowed to remain in the country because many families would be separated, they are already accustomed to the American society, and they contribute to the economy.
The attitudes of Christianity and Islam towards merchants and trade are different from one another in the beginning stages, but as time progress each moderate their earlier views. In the beginning Christians found it unfit to be a rich merchant, while Islam’s judgment on trade was acceptable as long as they were honest and the trading was just. As time went by over a couple hundred years, the followers if each belief changed their views on trade, though it was acceptable, merchants were expected to trade geniuses. In the beginning Christians found it unfit to be a rich merchant, while Islam’s judgment on trade was acceptable as long as they were honest and the trading was just. To sell a product for true value or to sell it for a profit has always been a debate.
America has been the land of immigration since the 1400s. Many people come here for better opportunities, as well as freedom. However, over the years, it has been more difficult for immigrants to come to America due to the government passing laws to tighten the country’s walls and the terrorist attack in Paris last month makes it worst for immigrant to come in. it is very understandable that the government is reluctant to let in some Syrian Refugees into his country. Nevertheless, America should take the refugees into their country because they are in danger, they are in need of a better opportunities, and they need guidance from higher officials.
In the United States we give chances to people in other countries to come over here in the land of the free to have a better chance at life. Immigrants only leave their native countries for a reasons like; a lack of local access to resources, a desire for economic prosperity, family re-unification, escape from prejudice, conflict or natural disaster, or simply the wish to change one 's surroundings. Every year the United States has more & more immigrants come over to stay for good or just for a little while. They come from all over the world & some even come just because they want to come. They have no reason sometimes but most reason always be because of a family or too much going on in their old country.
As difficult this issue is, taking citizenship birthright away would cause more problems than fixing them Most people are familiar with the term “America the land of opportunity” and the meaning of term pertains to throughout the time’s many people entered this nation for a fresh new start but something that isn’t emphasized enough is that also want to provide a secure future for their upcoming children. Taking away birthright citizenship would not just affect children of illegal immigrants but would also affect the children of those who are immigrating legally. This would create a second class of citizens those who not having the equal rights and privileges. Which usually lead to resentment from the youth against the nation he or she was born in. In his article “Why Birthright Citizenship Is Good for America “Alex Nowrasteh gives an example of two countries who doesn’t offer citizenship by birthright that faced problems.
2 Tourism Industry “Tourism comprises the activities of persons travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one year for leisure, business and other purposes”. United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). “Tourism is the temporary short-term movement of people to destinations outside the places where they normally live and work, and activities during their stay at these destinations; it includes movement for all purposes, as well as day visits or excursions.”(Holloway, 1987, p.2 & 3). The travel and tourism industry is the world’s largest commercial sector industry. (TG Journal, 2008).
When looking at differences between cultures one must not be judgmental. What works for one society my not work for another due to a number of reasons. Our society in America has evolved over the past two centuries to arrive to where it’s at today. Some of the marriage practices that are prevalent in the Arab world today were practiced in our American society in the past. We have a completely different dynamic within our American society.
Likewise, many people live in nations where their beliefs and the law do not match; citizens may be against an existing law, or citizens may wish for an amendment. Comparing statistics of those for and against same-sex marriage from only a few years ago and the most updated one, the decrease in the number of opposition is clear. From this, it can be hypothesized that media has worked its way through to guide the society to learn more about gay people before making any concrete judgments about them. As homosexuality was forcefully banned a few decades ago, people and nations have started to understand the idea of it through the help of media, something we encounter in our everyday lives. Nowadays, multiple TV shows that are aired in many parts of the
With those numbers, 4.5% of the people who are using ACA are illegal immigrants, that is more than the percent of people in the US who are using Obamacare (3.5%). A great deal of people in the US are skeptical of our current elected president due to his jerkish, angry, and sometimes racist persona. I believe some of Donald Trump’s stances are way too extreme, the travel ban on Muslims being the most outrageous. As a searching for solace young person, I myself have contemplated the beauty of Islam, read parts of the Quran, and I was amazed. Had I decided to become a Muslim, would I too be deported from the country I was born in?
While civil liberties help people to avoid government using too much of their power and control people’s lives, civil rights use the help of government to protect them from discrimination. Overall, comparead to civil liberties, civil rights issues are quite straight forward. However, controversy still rounded-up if people’s race or religous get involed in the decision making process in which employing people. One typical example is EEOC v. Abercrombie & Fitch Stores, Inc. The case happened in 2013, when Samantha Elauf, a Muslim woman who was 18 then, got denied for the sales staff position in Abercrombie & Fitch Stores.
The Spread of Islam "By 622 resistance became so strong that Muhammad decided to leave"( Back Ground Essay). Islam wasn 't accepted in Mecca at first, they didn 't believe in changing their religion views and following altered beliefs. Therefore, Muhammad traveled to reform a base along with his followers. During the time period of 600 CE, many routes were established through the Middle East for numerous reasons. Islam spread drastically due to cultural diffusion; however, military conquest seemed to be the significant for of cultural diffusion used to spread the Islam faith.
I find the role of religion in government quite interesting. In a previous lesson we learned about the Byzantine and Persian Empires and how they served as patrons for religious orthodoxies. Now as we start to discuss more about post-Muhammad Islam, we learn about the empires that served as the patrons for Islam. Religion seems to be the primary foundation for the rise and success for many of these empires, but in the 21st century religion does not serve this same purpose. The Safavid Empire was govern by and for Shiite Muslims, the Mughul Empire is quite distinct in that it seemed to be fueled by religious tolerance, so it was a hybrid of Islam and Hinduism, and the Ottoman Empire is also noteworthy as Robinson describes it as the “mightiest of the three”, most likely due
“Stop Laughing at Donald Trump” Immigrants have been venturing to the United States for as long as this country has been established due to the extraordinary opportunities we have to offer. In the past, immigrants would have to venture overseas and pass through Ellis Island to get their chance at the American Dream. Although the process of becoming an American citizen does not require immigrants to go through such stringent restrictions, immigrants still have to apply for citizenship in one of the many ways it is offered here in the United States. Today some immigrants neglect the responsibility that comes with becoming a citizen and a great deal of them cross over our borders illegally and live here with no proper documentation. People have
