  1. as-s,alaamu`alaikum,
    You are doing a great job to open peoples mind to Islam. keep up the good work Radio without borders. I read arabian nights as a tenager and found it captivating, i had no idea it had chinese influences nor that it was from the 15th century. Great review keep broadening peoples minds.
