    Assalamu’alaikum Ummi

    Ooooh dah tengok baguslah tu. Mereka buat masjid gunakan lumpur je. Kita buat masjid berkilau dengan kristal. Sejarah tamadun islam mereka jauh lebih hebat. Mali sudahmenjadi tempat pengembara dunia datang. Kelmarin baru sahaja melihat batu tanda Ibn Batutta pun sudah sampai ke Mali. Universiti Sankore sudah wujud dalam awal abad 16. Memang popular tempat ini, Mopti, Djenne dan Timbuktu tempat yang yang tak pernah tiada pelawat. Mereka adalah orang Eropah, kurang pelawat dari Asia
