"Have you not seen those who came before you?
Then you shall not find in Allah's way any change;
Nor shall you find in Allah's way any alteration."
Qur’an (35:43)

"The vanquished always seek to imitate their victors in their dress,

And in this a careful observer will mark a sign of inferiority...."
Ibn Khaldun in his Muqaddimah
