Jami` al-Hanabila - Damascus
The following are a few pictures taken at Jami` al-Hanabila, a mosque built by Ibn Qudama and the other Maqadisa when they migrated to Damascus. The mosque itself is located a third of the way up Jabl Qasyoun. Ibn Qudama and Ibn Malik the grammarian are buried a few hundred meters walk up from the mosque.
The picture quality has been reduced without any discernable difference in quality.
The close-up of the block with lines and numbers is a picture of sundial used for determining prayer times. When they renovated the mosque, they forgot to include the sundial's pole, hence no shadow.
My apologies for not labeling things better. Between GeoCities' frustrating and semi-arbitrary file name constraints, and then Eudora's [attempt at] inline image handling, file attachments are the way to go. The filenames of the attachments, in sha Allah, give some hints on the what, where, and directed faced in each picture.
If someone wishes to mirror these pictures, send me the URLs and I will send descriptions for each one.
