Ramadan used to be my favourite month of the year. Family gatherings, late night games, story telling and wonderful dishes, wrapped in traditions.
A musaharati, or dawn awakener, strikes his drum to wake observant people for their last meal before the day's fast, just before dawn.
As children in Jerusalem, we used to await the man who roams the old city allies, beating drums to wake up the neighbourhood to have the predawn suhoor meal and get ready to fast until sunset.
His voice rings out as he chants, piercing the silence of the empty streets decorated with traditional colorful lamps. “You, sleeping ones, there is one eternal God,” he chants. (A musaharati, Yaffa, Palestine 1920-1923) ‎من اجواء شهر رمضان في مدينة يافا في الفترة ما بين ١٩٢٠-١٩٢٣ حيث يظهر المسحراتي. ‎اصحى يا نايم ‎وحد الدايم ‎وقول نويت ‎بكره ان حييت
‎الشهر صايم ‎والفجر قايم
‎اصحى يا نايم ‎وحد الرزاق

Jerusalén es una ciudad compleja, requiere de tiempo para asimilarla y si en algún momento crees que ya la entiendes, vuelve a cambiar.
Fotografiarla es un reto y un placer intentarlo! #jerusalem #streetphotography

When Fareed Farukhi toured the Fish Interfaith Center at Chapman University about a year ago, he noticed that something was missing from its display of holy scriptures. “They showed me the Book of #Mormon, a #Bible from the Chapman family, and a #Torah from #Lithuania,” he said. “I said, ‘We have all these beautiful scriptures, but I don’t see the #Quran, which completes the Abrahamic faiths. You’ve got two out of the three.’ ”

So Farukhi, who founded Universal Heritage and Research Center — an #OrangeCounty group promoting cross-cultural understanding — decided to do something about it.

He assisted the #university in developing a new exhibit for the Fish Interfaith Center that features a 15th-century illuminated Quran from #Syria inside a custom designed seven-foot tall display cabinet with intricate wooden inlays of #Arabic #calligraphy and #Islamic geometry. “This display of the Quran and the cabinet shows how #beauty can be expressed through #religion, using #arts, culture and language,” said Farukhi.

The Quran exhibit, which will include a rotation of several copies of the Quran, is now the fourth scripture on display at the Fish Interfaith Center. It joins the Bible of C.C. Chapman, the university’s founder who died in 1944, the Book of Mormon donated by the #Church of #Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and a Lithuanian Torah that survived the Holocaust.

Each of the scriptures is housed in an elaborate wooden cabinet designed by #LosAngeles artist William Tunberg, who specializes in marquetry, a form of woodwork in which smaller, colored pieces of wood are inlaid to create a design.

Tunberg, who is Presbyterian, said he had little exposure to Islamic art and architecture before embarking on this project, but he ended up finding familiar ground. “Ninety-nine percent of Islamic design is geometric, and that goes right down my alley because I also use geometry in my sculptures,” he said, noting that Islamic architecture also relies on many of the same styles the ancient #Greeks and #Romans used.

To ensure the cabinet had a distinctive Islamic character, Tunberg said that he immersed himself in Islamic art, architecture CONTINUE READING 👇👇👇

In the old city of Jerusalem, a Palestinian boy adjusts Ramadan lights. The holy month began on May 26.

With more than 1.5 billion Muslims around the world, it is the most, if not one of the holiest holidays on the Muslim calendar.

Pemerintah kota Yerusalem mengucapkan selamat puasa untuk warga kota. Mayoritas Yahudi toleran juga kok pada yang minoritas. Namun Myslim di Israel komposisinya lebih banyak daripada yang Kristen. #tolerance #diversity #everydaylife #hadassahofindonesia #israel #israeli #jerusalem #muslim #muslimquarter

Pray for Israel 🇮🇱 #westernwall #israel #jerusalem #peace

The sunset over the Sea of Galilee. Oh, the beauty and glory of God is beyond words.
