He sent 500 Bālūcḥī families to settle in Kārbālāʾ (to defend it) after the Wahhabi cave dwellers sacked it. So, I think not.

I don’t mean the actual individual, I just meant the painting itself.

Im sure he didn’t look exactly like that.

Salams,

Curious, where'd you read he knew Greek and worked to translate Greek philosophical works?

He translated many of their works, as seen here. And in the 819th issue of this magazine, it’s said: that he referred to Aristotle’s philosophical terms as, weak.

I know you’re joking, not trying to be cold - but, that’s a water fountain.

Salams,

The link just says that this volume contains his studies into those works, I believe they were already translated centuries prior. The Elements, for example, by Euclid (كتاب العناصر) had existed in Arabic since the classical Abbasid period. Additionally the works of Aristotle had been in Arabic for centuries now, translated from Syriac, and the jargon had long since become standard by al-Tusi's lifetime. It would be interesting if he did, indeed, know Greek because he'd be one of the very few Muslim scholars who did (none really come to mind except one modern name who might). Do you see anything else that might indicate with more certainty if he knew Greek?

Yeah, after the Ottomans refused the Safavid military aid to keep the Holy Cities save, and then when Wahhabis invaded, all the Ottomans just fled. This is how we are “not” stabbed in the back since the beginning...

I’m pretty sure it was prearranged, and both parties were in-coordination with each other. But, your God gives respite, but doesn’t forget (or neglect), as they say. Exactly after 9 years of the attack, a war broke out between the Ottoman Empire and their Wahhabi counterpart, where the perpetrators of the attack were all slain and impaled by Muhammad Ali Pasha.

4000 of the Wahhabi army were beheaded like sheep, and their cities were demolished. The treasury and gold they looted was also lost.

Can we have a bit of quiet in the gallery please? Some of us are trying to appreciate the art on display. Apart from that @starlight who seems to have found one of the pieces quite the sujet d'amusement. :D

I consider such paintings highly disrespectful. Some people might consider me nefarious for raising issue to this, but I do it for the sake of Allah, considering what is really nefarious are images like this.

Agree

I DM'd him on Instagram, and he does sell. Most of his paintings are in the 180 cm * 300 cm range, if anyone else is thinking of buying.
