Islam has continually been a tolerant and progressive force, adopting, adapting and passing on ideas within and across its borders.
Dr Oliver Watson
Director, Museum of Islamic Art
Doha - Qatar
On a trip to Doha, Qatar I took the opportunity to visit the new Museum of Islamic Art. I was impressed in every sense. Starting with the apparently simple yet articulate design of the landmark building by the renown architect I. M. Pei. The collection is equally impressive. A reminder of the openness and diversity of Islam in a day and age it got "purified" out of its beauty.
