Being the first mosque built after the conquest of Istanbul, the great Mosque of Eyüp lies outside the city walls in Eyüp district. It is located near the Golden Horn, at the supposed place where Eyüp, the standard bearer of the Prophet Muhammed, died in the Islamic assault on Constantinople in 670. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari, who hosted the Prophet Muhammad in his house when he moved from Mecca to Medina, is supposed to be entombed in it. Even though today this mosque has gained significant importance and is considered as the second place of pilgrimage for Muslims after Mecca, it does not serve as a real pilgrimage place in Islam.Devamını oku
islamic dream interpretation – islamic dream dictionary
The foundation of all Islamic knowledge is revelation contained in the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. Since good dreams are also a form of revelation from Allaah, any legitimate attempt
to interpret the symbolism of dreams should rely primarily on the symbolism found in the Qur’aan and Sunnah.
A dream interpreter must listen to the complete story, and its minute details. He also must investigate and find acceptable religious references for each element in the dream. Ifhe does not fully understand the dream, or if he is unable to find such references, then it is better for him to refrain from making up an interpretation.
Who is Mevlana?
Hz. Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi is the great Anatolian mystic, poet and the father of the Mevlevi Order. He is known as Hz. Mevlana in the East and as Rumi in the West. At birth, his family named him Muhammed, though he came to be nicknamed Celaleddin. As for “Mevlana”, it connotes to “our master”, while “Rumi” relates to “the land of Rum” or “Anatolia”, where he lived. In his lifetime, he was also referred to as “Hudavendigar”, meaning “distinguished leader”, whereas his present internationally renowned title “Mevlana” was very seldom used. The name “Rumi” was added to the end, rather later on.Devamını oku

Muhammad Ibn Sirin was born in 654 and died at the age of 77. He was a very pious Muslim. He belonged to the tabighins, formed by the kufit school.

This is an application to calculate numerological values of Arabic expressions. Esoteric Abjad Calculator supports almost all abjad systems (Eastern/Mashriq, Western/Maghreb, Ibn Arabi's, Ontological) and types (True, Single digit, Literal, Mod12, Dotless Only, Dotted Only). Arabic keyboard is already provided inside application. To copy abjad result to the clipboard, just click on it.
In the first three abjad systems, values are simply calculated by addition of all number values of letters making up an expression. Each system assigns a different value to each letter.
Ontological Abjad System considers each Arabic word as a number in number base 28; each letter valued in ontological order (taken from Ibn Arabi's work) starting from 1 as Alif/Aleph, increasing with letter order and finally ending with 0 as Waw. This one is the only abjad system in which the letter order is important in a word.
What A Female Mid-Life Crisis Looks Like
Forty years ago, a generation of women entered the workforce with unprecedented choices and few models for guidance. Now that these women have reached mid-life and those behind them are just entering this phase, we can begin to define what a "mid-life crisis of identity" looks like for women with careers.
In the past, the major shift in identity that women faced was the transition from mother to freedom.
Now the career-minded woman's life path more closely resemble a man's, shifting aspirations with the turn of each decade of their lives. Yet the reasons for the shifts differ for women.1
Women now enter the workplace with high expectations of career advancement. Many in their 20's say, "I want to be CEO" then face the reality of having to live in the trenches for a while before they can rise up.
When the 'Arab Street' Comes to Sweden
It’s no surprise that U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital has sparked violence in the West Bank and Beirut, or even protests in far-flung Indonesia, which is majority Muslim.
But Sweden? Yet the western Swedish city of Gothenburg, headquarters of Volvo Car AB, saw the firebombing of a synagogue on Friday. The same evening, demonstrators in Malmö, in Sweden’s far south, called for their own “intifada” and threatened to shoot Jews.
What’s going on in Sweden reflects a changed demographic and psychic reality. The “Arab street,” if that abstraction ever existed, is no longer restricted to Arabic-speaking countries. Arab and other Muslim immigrants now living in Europe increasingly play just as active a role in enacting collective political opinion as their counterparts who did not leave their home countries.
Zelve Open Air Museum History
Zelve Open Air Museum in the Cappadocia region is one of the most visually stunning historical sites in Turkey. Originally a Byzantine-era (9th century) monastery, it is reputed to be both one of the earliest settled and last-abandoned monasteries in the entire region. The ‘museum’ houses the oldest known examples of Cappadocian architecture and religious paintings.
The honeycomb-esque spaces include religious and secular chambers and pointed fairy chimneys and in the 400 years between the 9th and 13th centuries, four churches were built whose remains stand to this day despite nature’s best efforts at erosion.
Life of Evliya Çelebi
E.Ç. was born on 10 Muharrem 1020/25 March 1611 in Unqapanı (Istanbul) as the son of the imperial goldsmith (quyumcubaşı) Derviş Mehmed Zılli Aga (d. 1058/ 1648). He traces his paternal genealogy through Ahmed Yesevi (d. 562/1166) all the way back to the imams of early Islamic history, a pedigree reflecting the folk stories of gazis and dervishes preserved in Ottoman popular memory. At several points in his work E.Ç. claims that his ancestor Ece Yaqub (13 c.?) originated from the Transoxanian region Mahan and came to Anatolia with Ertugrul Gazi (d. 687/1288), trying to unite in his person the two main legitimating strands of the Ottoman dynasty, namely the Turkish and Islamic heritage. Even though his claim that his father was a warrior of faith under Süleyman I (926-74/1520-66) is anachronistic, his statement that he contributed as a court jeweler to pious works of art during the reign of Ahmed I (1012-26/1603-17) is more reliable.
The Writings of Ibn 'Arabi
Ibn 'Arabi is one of the most inventive and prolific writers of the Islamic tradition, with a very large number of books and treatise attributed to him. He wrote a number of works whilst still living in Andalusia, but the majority of his writings date from the second part of his life when he was living in Mecca, Anatolia and Damascus.
Of the heritage which has come down to us, there is a core of about 85 works which we can be certain are genuine works by him. These include the encyclopaedic "Meccan Revelations" (al-Futūḥāt al-Makkiyya) which numbers more than 2,000 pages in the printed edition, and around 15 substantial long works, including a Dīwān (collected poetry) of about 800 poems and his master work "The Ringstones of Wisdom" (Fusūs al-ḥikam). The remainder are short treatises, some just a few pages long written in response to a student’s need or request.
