August 01, 2022, 08:48:12 pm Ruhi_Rose: As-Salam Alaykum MV guests. Just a reminder how time flies. We're already in the Islamic new year of 1444 month of Muharram, a very tragic time of our history. May The Almighty grant Hussein bin Ali and his comrades the best spot in Paradise for their unflinching courage to uphold the values of the Final Message, The Noble Quran.  Please read our post Ashura - who was Hussein?

Mash'Allah, absolutely wonderful.  Thanks for the details brother.  I've seen quite a few medieval paintings of Eyup cemetery, and its history adds to its beauty.

Thatís a good question.  Generally they had their own mausoleums in the premises of Mosques, educational institutions or libraries which they built, or close to their residential palaces.  I donít know of any Ottoman sultan interred in Karacaahmet cemetery.  However, thereís another very old, large and beautiful graveyaard in Turkey called the Eyup cemetery where several medieval famous personalities are buried including some Ottoman sultans, their families, high ranking religious authorities, court members, viziers, military commanders, civil servants, intellectuals, scientists and artists.  This cemetery is another historic landmark. Itís located on the European side of Istanbul, Turkey.

It has a nice history too.  Started with the burial ground of Abu Ayub al-Ansari, a companion of the Prophet (pbuh), martyred in a war with the Byzantines in, what was then called, ďConstantinople.Ē It was his wish to be buried as close to the city walls as possible.  Later in 1453 when Constantinople was conquered and named Istanbul by the Ottomans, Ayub al-Ansariís grave was monumented and a mosque constructed close-by called the Eyup Sultan Mosque. From then onward, this place became a popular burial ground for Ottoman Turkish people and was named Eyup cemetery.

Some images of Eyup cemetery:

Apology for those ďalamyĒ water marks.

Yeah, her name was Tenzile and his dad was Ahmet who is buried next to his mom.  That entire hall is for the VIPs.  If you take a better look at the photo where Erdogan is standing alone, you can see a small gate at the far end, opposite.   Iím quite sure the general public arenít allowed to cross the gate and come into the VIP hall of the cemetery, neither for interment of a loved one nor for sightseeing.  I hope Iím wrong, but Iím pretty certain thatís the way it is.

LOL, kidos keep us going  😃

I didnít know those were the graves of Erdoganís parents.   I get it now.  No wonder the spick & span clean-up.   Was his motherís name ďTenzileĒ as one of the gravestones says?

Yeah,  entire family and also my sisterís.  Altogether we were a total of about 15 or 16 of us, kids and adults  .. and thus quite a noisy band of holiday makers  😁  The kids back then were very young.  Now when we talk about it they know it was a cemetery.  At that time they went running all over thinking it to be a pretty picnic spot with cypress trees.   No doubt the place looks so pretty.
