I have all of the Land of Fire products. I finally got around to reading Land of Fire and its Novice Rank (i.e., low-level) adventures over the holiday weekend. The themes are similar to those of Al-Qadim. Jinn feature prominently, gifts are exchanged when hospitality is offered, and the line between the divine and the arcane are blurred. The adventures run the gamut from Sinbad to flying carpet races to survival in the merciless desert to facing fearsome ghûls.
Aside from the different locations and NPCs, Land of Fire features different races, excluding dwarves, elves, and haflings, and instead including sand goblins, hyena men, and jackal men. Fate isn't given the same emphasis as it is in Al-Qadim, either. I didn't find mention of some of the Al-Qadim kits, such as the barber.
The settings are different enough that you'd need to make some adjustments to run adventures meant for one in the other, but they're similar enough that Land of Fire provides some additional content that could be ported into Al-Qadim without much fuss.
