New expansion to Masjid Al-Haram (makkah)

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Tuesday 29th January, 2008

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah approved the new expansion project earlier this month. The approval includes the acquisition of land and other properties, covering an area of 300,000 square meters. Special committees have begun estimating the value of real estate in the area and as many as 1,000 properties in the Shamiya and Shubaika areas will be demolished as part of the expansion project. The government has also allocated some SR6 billion to be paid in compensation for properties. Sources said the demolition of old buildings in the area would begin on March 9.

saheb qibla fultholi

Innah Lillahi wa inna ilaihi rajioon………………..Around about 20:00hrs GMT on the 15th January 2008, Saheb Qibla Fultali (Abdul Latif Choudhury) left this world @ his palace in sylhet……may allah forgive him for the division he created amongst ahlus sunnah – bangladesh. May allah give his mureeds the tawfiq to align with maslak-e-ala hazrat, now that there remains no obstacle blocking their path. Inshallah. Ameen Summa Ameen.

Hajj Mawlid 1428

Posted by Abd Al Mustafa on Monday 14th January, 2008

Alhamdulillah Azzawajal, Allah has brought me safely back to my home. I bring back for my readers this time a video of mawlid @ sayyid alawi’s residence with the company of habib umar and shaykh ahmad ibn muhammad ibn alawi, and the esteemed mufti-e-azam bangladesh shaykh muhammad abdul jalil mza:db.

Due to bad timing i had to miss out on a mawlid gathering during my stay at al-madina al-munawwarah so i have added here a mawlid gathering that took place in sweet madina a few months back. Video courtesy of shaykh ainul huda, NY, USA.
