Al Aqsa Masjid.

Jerusalem is such a majestic place.

While this masjid - the Dome of the Rock - is beautiful, it is NOT Al-Aqsa Masjid. Please google images for Al-Aqsa Masjid and you will see it, a much smaller mosque with black domes. Al-Aqsa was the first kiblah for Muslims, before the Ka’aba in Mecca, and was also the point from which our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. ascended to the ‘arsh.
Also FYI, the Israeli Government is currently doing unauthorized construction work underneath the Al-Aqsa mosque, which is causing major damage to the foundation of the mosque. At the same time, Palestinians are being denied the right to commence repairs and restoration on the mosque by the Israeli government. It’s obvious that they are trying to destroy this Holy Site. Unfortunately, many of us make the mistake of thinking this (Dome of the Rock Masjid) is in fact the Al-Aqsa Mosque, as it is even portrayed like that in the Media. It is a cunning tactic to ensure Muslims are kept from the truth. Please do your research and inform everyone you know about the REAL AL-AQSA MASJID, we still have some time!

Husein-kapetan Gradaščević (31 August 1802 – 17 August 1834) was a Bosniak Muslim general who fought for Bosnian autonomy in the Ottoman Empire. He is often referred to as “Zmaj od Bosne”, meaning “Dragon of Bosnia”. Gradaščević was born in Gradačac in 1802—hence his surname Gradaščević, meaning “of Gradačac”—and grew up surrounded by a political climate of turmoil in the western reaches of the Ottoman Empire. The young Husein developed a reputation for wise rule and tolerance and soon became one of the most popular figures in Bosnia.

Husein Gradaščević was a living legend in his own time. Upon his death, he also became something of a martyr for Bosnian pride. There was a well-known saying among Bosniaks that for years after his death not a single man among our people would be able to hear his name and not shed a tear. This positive sentiment was not exclusive to the Muslim population, as Christians from Posavina are thought to have shared a similar view for decades. X
