Description of Aleppo Great Mosque
The architecture seemed nice and I particularly like the beautiful calligraphy of various duas along all its interior walls. You can read them pretty clearly they’re all the: Rabbana… duas. Again that day was 112 degrees and I think we came here twice to drink lots of water and pass out.
Look at the last picture there. Know what you see? I didn’t. At first I thought oh wow there are lots of old men here. I guess they come here to do dhikr and stuff cause they’re retired. But then I looked closer as we walked by them and realized it: They’re blind. All of them are blind. I had chills all down my spine…SubhanAllah. We ran back and dug up some change in our stuff to give to each one. I suppose that’s why they’re there, but it was just kinda a freaky experience. I have a whole long journal entry about it that I’ll add someday, inshaAllah
