Do you really need to go overseas to seek sacred knowledge?

Students in the hot Mauritanian desert are reclining in nomadic tents, listening to their teacher exposit a classical treatise on Maliki law, meticulously taking notes on a clay tablet that they will later memorize rote and wipe clean.

Students in the bustling city of Damascus are catching a taxi to their teacher’s apartment, where they will sip tea on comfortable sofas as they listen to a lesson on logic, jotting notes in the margins of the modern printed text, recording their teacher’s voice on a digital mp3 player for future reference.
