I established this website to promote education, help students in my community learning the Arabic language as a second language and to post our community cultural activities online.. Serving my community, immigrants, schools, universities, professionals, researchers and others who are interested in learning Arabic and studying Arabic and Islamic cultures.
There are Jewish Arabs, Christians Arabs and Muslims Arabs. So, not all Arabs are Muslims and by the way not all Muslims are Arabs.The culture of those divisions somewhat are not similar or the same because the differences in societies cultures,beliefs and religions teachings. However, it is easy to find Jewish, Christians and Muslims live together in one place or country in peace and no conflict because all religions are calling people to live in peace and harmony.
Islam, the world's fastest-growing faith, will leap from 1.6 billion (in 2010) to 2.76 billion by 2050, according to the Pew study.

Islamic scholars say , if a woman wants to cover her face, it is up to her to cover or not. Nowadays, most women use only the regular Hijab which only covers head, neck , chest and the rest of her body like sisters or nuns in Christianity.
