My first visit to the Umayyad Mosque, the second

Friday, May 19, 2006

After going inside the mosque, I entered the main hall of the mosque. It was the most prestigious part of the historical prestigious remain. High roofs with well decorated walls were the main shape of the main hall. I walked inside the hall until I reach its center. Iranians were there. A scholar was lecturing them. He was holding a small microphone and talk in words mixed with crying. The Umayyad mosque is the most beautiful remain of the Umayyad era. The Shiite claims that that era was almost against Ali and his sons. I didn't understand anything from the scholar talk. It was in Persian and I of course don't know it.

  • The photo is from inside the Ummayad mosque and is part of the text above and desription of what is written above. It was taken by Mustafa Hamido


  1. Are the people in the photo the Iranians? It seems Syrian/Iranian relationship is growing quite strong to have Iranians giving lectures in the Umayyad Mosque. Or did this always happen?

  2. Iam a fan af syrian iranian relation ship. the photoe which is appearing is real and it might be inclear enough to dffrentiate between syrians and iranian ; however , what i has descriped is real and the lecture also are real.

  3. Oh I support the Syrian/Iranian relationship as well. I was just wondering whether the photo was of the meeting you're talking about or whether it was taken off the net.

    Very interesting.

  4. the photo which is appeared is taken by me , and it is real
