Salaam,

Would someone mind helping me?


1. What is the purpose of Ibn Battuta’s travel? How long does the journey take? What are the countries he visits?

2. What are Ibn Battuta’s occupations along the way? How does he make a living? Where does he stay (and who with)?

3. How does he describe people in Black Africa? Their cultures/traditions/ beliefs? Is he biased/conservative or open-minded? Give examples.

4. What kind of style is the travelogue written in? What are the things that seem surprising to him?

5. What is the cultural/religious environment that surrounds Ibn Battuta’s journey? Is it important to understand his views?

heheh :) I love this guy, read his book it's nice. =)

Actually some people say its lies, some say its true. He traveled all muslim corners of the world, indonesia, china, spain, africa, all tha stuff.

Go to youtube, and search Ibn E Battuta.

Do you want some links?

Try wikipedia, they wrote pages about him. Also bollywood made a nice song about him.

some funny series about him on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44KrS...9EBCDF8FF9BEA4

He was a respected schoolar. He travelled longer than Marco Polo.

This says a lot. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ibn_Battuta

Yes he described the people, try wikipedia. I read some interesting facts about him. The subject is so long, that I can't help to type it all. But try the links. =P
