Where are you from and how long have you been in Algeria?

I am from Ireland and have lived in Algeria for 12 years Alhamdulilah.

What would you never change and what would you change in Algeria?

What I would never change in Algeria:

Obviously the fact that it is a country of Muslims with Islam being the center of most things in life in one way or another – the adhan, mosques in every community with more springing up all the time, the way people answer ‘Asalaam alaykum’ always with the full ‘walaykum asalaam wa rahmatulah wa barakatu’ and usually with sincerity, whether it’s in the supermarket, the market, the doctor or dentist’s surgery or the police checkpoint on the road, the packed mosques in Ramadan and at Eid etc. etc.

The kindness and friendliness of the Algerians. I’ve had several guests from abroad who have come and stayed with us for a while, and their interactions with Algerians whether it’s my husband’s family, or shopkeepers or complete strangers, have all helped them to feel welcome and at home, and this despite the fact that most of them weren’t Muslim.  Continue reading
