שמע ישראל ה' אלהינו ה' אחד
فمن كان يرجوا لقاء ربه فليعمل عملا صالحا ولا يشرك بعبادة ربه أحدا

Welcome to the Holy Land أهلا وسهلا

Under the Dome of Rock (kippah) الحمد لله

Under the Dome is the Foundation Stone. Right? ما شاء الله

Under the Foundation Stone is a cavern. The light comes from a hole through the Stone ما شاء الله | niche

BTW, isn't it amazing there are Israel and asSyria again right now.
But this time, who will have teshuva (repentance)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
يهدي به الله من اتبع رضوانه سبل السلام
ويخرجهم من الظلمات إلى النور بإذنه ويهديهم إلى صراط مستقيم

Wherewith Allah guides those who pursue His pleasure to the ways of peace
and He brings them out of darkness by His Will unto light, and guides them to a Straight Way

Wings of Mercy

This theory tries to match science with the Holy Scriptures

Scientists figure that, one day, Earth could be engulfed as the Sun grows into a red giant. If this is to happen, the only way for us to survive is to escape to another habitable planet. If humans see this future, then a Mars mission wouldn't seem like a waste of tax payers money - it is building an escape rocket. ✈

But... with our money spent on 'more important' stuffs; and even if we do build an escape rocket, we have to  1  find a nice habitable planet &  2  survive travelling there -  we may never escape Earth, isn't it...

So as our body, mansions, super cars, possessions burn to the ash on that Day, the only ones who would be safe are the ones who can somehow escape Earth, raised high to the heavens.

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم
فمن زحزح عن النار وأدخل الجنة فقد فاز وما الحياة الدنيا إلا متاع الغرور ...
... So he who is drawn away from the Fire and admitted to Paradise has attained success. And what is the life of this world except the enjoyment of delusion.
Partial Holy Quran 3:185
Raised To The Heavens
והמשכלים יזהרו כזהר הרקיע

Is it similar to Prophet Jesus [QA] and Prophet Muhammad when they were raised to the heavens? ماشاء الله

The desire is to be close to Allah (SWT), and return to Heaven - the origin of Prophet Adam [QA] and his wife Hawa (Eve) before their fall.

إن المتقين في جنات ونهر
في مقعد صدق عند مليك مقتدر


If I may, can I imagine that Day? والله أعلم [QA | SB.12.770]

For those who receive Allah's Mercy, Allah (SWT) will raise them high to Him. They have faith in the One God Most High, the Creator above, and had worked righteousness in the hopes for Allah's (SWT) forgiveness & mercy. So they were blessed with Allah's (SWT) forgiveness & mercy. ومن عمل صالحا فلأنفسهم يمهدون [Q30:44], لهم فيها ما يشاءون خالدين كان على ربك وعدا مسئولا [Q25:16] الله يرحمهم

Then there are those who were with the righteous, but the Fire caught up with them and they fell. But by Allah's (SWT) Mercy to whom ever He Wills, eventually some of them will come out of the Fire. This is bcoz they worshiped none but Allah (SWT) alone, even if their faith is a mustard seed's in weight. The Water of Life will be poured on them, and they will grow like the seeds growing on the bank of flowing water. أهؤلاء الذين أقسمتم لا ينالهم الله برحمة ۚ ادخلوا الجنة لا خوف عليكم ولا أنتم تحزنون [Q7:49] ماشاء الله

And for the rest, what they prefer of the Earth and its rock idols - will perish.
إنها لإحدى الكبر نذيرا للبشر لمن شاء منكم أن يتقدم أو يتأخر [Q74:35-37]

So please be safe

And thank you for supporting space mission. May we can see life in the heavens are more grand than we can ever imagine. & hope for Paradise, before our time on this earth end. | QA Hereafter, Judgment Day
I seek refuge in Allah SWT from errors.

Black Banner

Posted By Snow at 2/13/2015 2 comments

The rise of the Mongol Empire, 13th century
Back in the 13th century, a new empire dawned from the East - the Mongol. Conquering cities from Asia to Europe, they became the largest contiguous empire in human history.


Black Tug Banner
A replica of the Black Tug Banner flown by Genghis Khan


The Middle East conquered, from 1256
I read the grandson of Gengis Khan, Hulegu Khan's mission was to move into Syria as far as the borders of Egypt. [Saudi Aramco] They conquered fortresses across Iran and the Levant, with efficiency using trebuchets. As seen in the picture, they also flew the Black Tug Banner - it is a pole made from horse tail, flown in war time. [Wikipedia]

The Fall of Baghdad, Feb 1258
Then Hulegu Khan turned to the Abbasid city of Baghdad. At the time, Baghdad was the renowed City of Knowledge with its House of Wisdom (بيت الحكمة‎). But on this day 757 years ago, it fell to the Mongols. The House of Wisdom was destroyed, Al-Musta'sim became the last Abbasid Caliph of Baghdad; and the shock reverberated in the Islamic world.

The Battle of Ain Jalut, Sep 1260
As Hulegu Khan advanced westward to Syria, the survival of Cairo hung in the balance. But fate intervened, Mongke died so Hulegu returned, leaving the commands to Kitbuqa. They battled in Ain Jalut (the Spring of Goliath). Here for the first time, the Mongol was ultimately defeated - none had stopped the Mongol army until they reached Ain Jalut, near Jerusalem. The Mamluk victoriously stopped their westward advance.

Eastern Mongols - Western Arabs

As the Mongols became the largest contiguous empire in human history, they met the Arabs side by side.


Embracing Islam

35 years later in 1295, Gazan Khan of the Mongols in Persia (Ilkhan) embraced Islam. الحمد لله With his conversion, a new era dawned. The Mongols became the champions of Islam, spreading it to India, Indonesia, Malaysia; with Farsi as the langua franca. [ref] They also became patrons of Persian learning; they had an observatory in Margheh in which Persian and Chinese scholars worked together, while Rashid al-Din (a jewish convert to Islam) wrote the Collection of Histories. [ref]

If there was a baby during the fall of Baghdad, he should be at least 37 when Ghazan embraced Islam. Wishing he is muslim.

Was the 13th century quasicrystal at Darb-i Imam, Iran built under the Mongols? Were Turabeg Khanym, Registan & Taj Mahal as well? [ref]

Saudi Aramco states "Khan" is from the Turkic "Han" (prince). Is it like Han Dynasty, hanfu or the surname "Han" (Hang Tuah, Hang Li Po)?

In 1313, Oz Beg Khan of the Mongols in Russia (Horde) made Islam as the state religion. الحمد لله The Horde actually had embraced Islam earlier than 1266 - during Berke Khan. Like the Ilkhan, they championed Islam around Kazakhstan.

In the 1420s, Ulug Beg of the Turko-Mongol in Central Asia (Chagatai) built an observatory in Samarkand, one of the finest in the world - Samarkand and Bukhara became learning centers. Then in the 1520s, Babur founded the Mughal Empire in India.

Meanwhile, the Mongols in China (Great Khan or Yuan) elected Shams al-Din Omar from Bukhara as Assistant Minister in Yunan - he attracted thousands of locals to embrace Islam. الحمد لله Then when the Ming Dynasty replaced the Yuan, they elected many muslims as administrators, scholars. They elected Zheng He as its most famous admiral - he maintained peace in the Malay archipelago which helped the spread of Islam in the 15th century.

I read Shams al-Din and Zheng He are said to be the Prophet's descendants. [ref | book]

ماشاء الله

Wishing Hulegu, the Mongols and all the rest are like Khalid Walid

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAA it's only a movie | watch here
So Jihadi John, why are you identical with that actor? Are all that videos a filming act?
How did you produce sophisticated artful videos as if crafted by professional directors? والله أعلم

Please Japan, do you find this peculiar? May Allah (SWT) reveals the truth and brings justice.
And it's peculiar that Jihadi John speaks good english too - with no Bitza Hut, sanduitsh, al-shokolit...
In pure arabic tongue, Arabs don't have a "g, c, p, v"

Jihadi John is not alone, there's even Abu Bakar Al-Baghdadi | watch here
Did they call him "halife (caliph خليفة)"? Oh Turks, what were they saying?

And the militants... | watch here

And their trucks... | watch here and here

And are they really that tall... they're gigantic

BTW in movies, computer graphics can simulate fire by using particle system
I do not know what truly happened, but can I wonder about what I am seeing والله أعلم

Peace be upon you
