Al-Aqsa: The Blessed Land: Part 4

Prophets (AS) who resided there

IF GREAT PERSONALITIES enrich a place, then al-Quds (Jerusalem) is second to none. The greatest Prophets have either lived in or passed by the blessed city of al-Quds (Jerusalem). Hence, the significance of al-Aqṣā Sanctuary and Palestine is further enhanced by both the presence of noble Prophets and major events that occurred during the lifetime of these great men.

Prophet Ibrāhīm (AS)

وَنَجَّيْنَٰهُ وَلُوطًا إِلَى ٱلْأَرْضِ ٱلَّتِى بَٰرَكْنَا فِيهَا لِلْعَٰلَمِينَ

And We saved him and Lut (AS) and brought him to the land upon which We had bestowed Our blessings for all the people of the world. [Sūrah al-Anbiyā’ 21: 71] read more

THE 99 NAMES OF ALLAH (Asmaa ul Husnaa)

The Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) has said: "Allah has ninety-nine names, i.e. one-hundred minus one, and whoever knows them will go to Paradise." (Sahih Bukhari 50:894)

Abu Huraira RA reported Allah's Messenger (Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam) as saying: "There are ninety-nine names of Allah; he who commits them to memory would get into Paradise. Verily, Allah is Odd (He is one, and it is an odd number) and He loves odd numbers.." (Sahih Muslim Book-48 Hadith-5)

Navy Shots

While I'm not sure of the procedure now, when I was in the Navy, every so often, you got umpteen shots, whether you needed them or not. The carrier pilot in front of me as we passed through the line asked for a drink of water after receiving what seemed to be at least a dozen different needles.

The Corpsman asked if he was dizzy.

"No, not at all." he replied. "I just wanna see if I'm still water-tight."
