I went to visit this week Mlita a village in south where hezbollahi soldiers used to fight Israeli soldiers, I was shocked to see this museum/exhibition of smashed israeli weaponry as well as weapons for hezbullah and all kinds of army tools for both parties. I didn't know all this existed. Basically it is a mountain where hezbullahi soldiers have digged underground tunnels with their bare hands where they resided for a very long time, they made an underground kitchen, living room, salah room, communication room, etc... Here are some pictures of the exhibition.

 

I remember going there a few years ago, was a great experience.

Apparently many people come to Lebanon to go visit this site, I'm a citizen of Lebanon and i had no idea this existed lol. Maybe because i'm a convert and I'm integrating very slowly in the community and i'm picking carefully my friends cause there are a lot of people who have created their own kinda shia-sect here.

Absolutely beautiful old pictures of Najaf and how Baqi would look like if mausoleums were to be built over the graves of the Aimah. Beautiful.

 

I have a couple pictures of Karbala from 1930s too. But those are family pictures arranged to be taken by a European photographer called S. Baker who had set up shop in Karbala during that time (the photo has the stamps).

 

My great-great-grandfather lies in a coffin with his son standing in next to it and the boy grandson of the deceased (my maternal grandfather) is also present in the pictures.

 

It was a caravan of 200 or so people that travelled thousands of kilometers to Karbala from Multan (then British India).

 

The deceased was buried, as per his dying wish, in one of the chambers circling the main courtyards of the Imam Hussain's shrine.

 

Perhaps I can scan the pictures and post them here. Hmm...

Dear brother, may Allah have mercy on your ancestors, your great great grandfather must have been a respectable person. I read a lot of shias from remote places like Iran or India were buried in shrine cities like Najaf or Karbala throughout history.

But I wonder how it was possible to carry a deceased body from India to al Iraq ? Are embalment techniques allowed besides ghusl ?

Would love to see some 1930's Karbala pictures, if they are not to personal of course.

Wasalam,

I don't know the exact fiqhi position about embalming but it was used when a remains were to be transported over large distances. My ancestor was buried "temporarily" in a local grave until travel arrangements were made. It took about a year from his death to his burial in Karbala. 

I will try to scan the old pics and post here soon inshallah :)

View from my hotel, this is the river that separates Windsor, Canada from Detroit, USA.

Is it possible to swim over to the other side without being detected?

This is horrible. I don't even understand how you people live in a climate like this. I'd run away before the first winter is over.

For contrast, this is how it looked outside my window the other day..

Yeah it's depressing honestly. We do get nice weather like the one in your picture... but for only 4 months a year..

well I like to slaughter off season, because that's when people need it most. In eid everybody is swimming in blood and meat. Alhamdulilah, giving food to the needy is to me the only time I feel like i'm living my purpose in life.

That was yesterday and I hope that God accepts this sacrifice to Him.

Takabalallah.

Coney Island, Singapore. They've created a cycling trail where you can have a few moments away from qadzilions of people and commercialism.

You can take the Pakistani out of Pakistan, but you can't take Pakistan out of the Pakistani.

Muslims might need these bits of knowledge in the coming years. 

In any case those who are the worst victims of passport based apartheid are the first ones to notice these things.
