Can you believe this.. Apparently, the modern day Spain & Portugal, once had a Muslim civilization. In the 8th-15th century, Muslims governed areas of the Iberian Peninsula better known as Andalucia (Al Andalus الأندلس). & it reached its most glorious in the 10th century, during the Umayyad Caliphate. ماشاء الله

Under the Islamic rule, Andalucia witnessed Muslims, Christians & Jews living together peacefully. وجعلناكم شعوبا وقبائل لتعارفوا [Q49:13 | QA] It was a beacon of learning, the city of Cordoba itself was a leading economic centre in the Mediterranean. ماشاء الله

Here are some of its architectural legacy in Spain:



The Santa María la Blanca is of Moorish influence
........................................ ........................................

The buildings are of Moorish architecture, bcoz they were built by the Moors. [wiki] The Moors are Berber, African & Arab descent from North Africa. They're also Muslims, so the architecture is also known as Islamic architecture. Then after the Reconquista, the Christian architecture with influences from the Islamic ones are known as "mudéjar". [whc]

& here are similar Spanish-Arabic words:



& here are similar European-Arabic words:


I seek refuge to Allah SWT from errors.
Only Allah SWT knows best. والله أعلم

Candles

Having primitive lamps can make us experience the real night time darkness. A night time so dark, the sky will be shown as it truly is - sprinkled with stars! (*v*) ماشاء الله

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
فقضاهن سبع سماوات في يومين وأوحى في كل سماء أمرها
وزينا السماء الدنيا بمصابيح وحفظا ذلك تقدير العزيز العليم
And He completed them as seven heavens within two days, and inspired in each heaven its command. And We adorned the nearest heaven with lamps (misbah) and as protection. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing. [Al-Quran 41:12]

Now, it's harder to see the stars when the electric lights shines all around the earth #sepi


Missing the beautiful night time sky
