The Moon has been revered by civilisations all over the world across time. It provides gentle light, sets calendars and regulates the tidal force. Ulrike al-Khamis explores our fascination with this mystical celestial body and looks at the role it has played in faith, science, and the arts across the Muslim world and beyond.
