Great ahmet54 2016-06-19 12:22

Hi Malgo,
great shot in saturated colours. It is really similar to the domes at Samarkand. I like timurid architecture, the colours and the different characters. The writing on your picture is part of sura al-an'am : ahadakumu almawtu tawaffat-hurusuluna wah(um la yufarritun) english: when death comes to one of you, Our messengers take him, and th(ey do not fail).
Kind regards,

Smile To ahmet54: Thanks

Hello Ahmet,

Thanks for your kind words and for the translation of what it is written there. I am really astonished. How do you know it Can you read this script and understand or you just know? Anyway, I am really grateful .
I saw on TE that you posted many pictures from Uzbekistan. I would love to go there, now even more when I saw this monuments in Kazakhstan. And if you like Central Asia, go to Kazakhstan. It is safe, interesting, cheap and the people are very friendly.

Kind regards Malgo

Default arabic

Hello Malgorzata,
first of all I want to say, that I am no muslim. I am agnostic. When I was much younger than today, about 40 years ago I started travelling to Turkey. I like the people, the country and its famous sights. I started learning turkish, a fascinating language. Later I wanted to understand old Ottoman texts and inscriptions, so I learned to read arabic characters. I made some arabic lessons. I cannot understand arabic. I typed the words on the inscription into Google and Google answered with the text of a quran-online-site; complete with explanation and translation. No sorcery When I have got more time -I will retire in 20 months- I will start to visit whole central Asia.
Kind regards,
