This photo taken before a couple of weeks by my phone at early morning when the sun just raised up, i love it much and how it looks like arrow . as it says go a head to your dreams : ) . There are umbrellas over there I think the sun light got through it ,shaped this wonderful arrow.
I was very happy this day and feeling up specially the weather was nice, few times I watch the sunrise and this was a great moment for me I felt the sun huge and near 😀
Love this place
the last day at that place , was sunny day bodes well , with unbelievable events
life is always full of surprising stuff . gives the gifts at right moment ! times arranges unexpected meeting with people you don’t know much about them , it’s enough to met them once then life can plays with the times so may they back with great things or leave to their way
while i was wandering on that place to farewell everything , met by chance that friend
which I got to know her on the stairs one day and had normal conversation !
it’s your last day here right? – yes so are you going now ? -no i have something to do it then go ok , May I have your number phone please? -yes for sure thanks !! -you’re welcome
everyone gone on way
the early hours of morning passed as usual but with different taste I know I won’t be again at that place it’s the last day !!
at 10:00 Am finished my work
10:15 went to the coffee shop ordered my favorite drink , 10:20 talked with some of friends and said good bye to them 10:30 on the door about to leave , suddenly the same friend back from flowers shop
do you want leave ? -yes I think just a moment i have something to you ? – ??? here you are , this rose for you and I wish you good luck – 😮 not believe !! thank you so much for that I’m really appreciated that’s kind of you so for now good bye -good bye
the rose of 10:30 am was unique rose not for shape or smell but for the feeling at that attitude
wasn’t know much about that friend and I think she is very lovely
I kept that rose saved although it leaves dried but when I see it I feel it alive
Attracts me the moment of sunset when it announces to leave, wish i can still watching it every day from window ,rarely can catch this view close and see the shyness of the sky appears in horizon in baht red color , the combine of many colors , the rays around sun circle slowly hides till the sky dressed darkness decorated with stars like diamonds , I would say that lucky who was the sky his roof he could see different status each day he/she could enjoy in each moment of sunrise,sunset,evening while watching moon and brilliant stars
In town life this view hardly seen because of high buildings and neon lights that steal our attention to run behind excitement and entertaining , sometimes it takes us away of enjoying the simple life and the beauty of nature , forgetting that nature can inspires our dead souls refresh our thought through meditation in god creatures .nature is one of happiness reasons too which brings peace of mind and peace in souls .
I was luck to catch this blessed bird and picture it 🙂 , rarely find it in the town or gardens!!
it looks beautiful , I also shot a cat was in the same area 😉
this bird has a story with prophet Suleiman and queen Bilqis , justwant to share it ……
Prophet Suleiman (a.s) had a very large army of men, jinn and birds. One day, he was checking the army. “And he looked amongst the birds and he said: “Why can’t I see the hoopoe bird or is he absent?” (Sura Naml, Verse 20)
hoopoe bird has the duty of searching for water when the army needed it.On that day, it had left without asking for permission to do so and Prophet Suleiman (a.s) decided to punish it if it came back without a good excuse for its absence.
When the bird came back, it explained to Prophet Suleiman (a.s) what it had seen: “… I come to you from Sheba with sure news. I found a woman ruling over the people, she has been given many blessings and has a mighty throne! I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah…” (Sura Naml, Verses 22-24).
When Prophet Suleiman (a.s) heard about Queen Bilqis and her city in Yemen, he was very surprised and decided to find out if what the bird had said was true.
He wrote a letter to her asking her and her people to accept Allah (S. W.T) as their God and to stop worshipping the sun. Then he sent the hoopoe bird to take the letter to the Queen and see what her answer was.
When Bilqis read it, she did not know what to do and asked her ministers for advice. Her commanders told her that they were willing to follow her decision.
Queen Bilqis knew that an ordinary king would be greedy for power and try to take over her land. She decided to test Prophet Suleiman (a.s) to see if he was a true prophet of Allah (S.W.T) or if he just wanted her wealth.
She sent a group of men with gifts of gold, silver and other treasures to Suleiman (a.s) as a gift from her. When Prophet Suleiman (a.s) saw all this, he said: “What? Will you try to help me with wealth? What Allah has given me is better than what He has given you and your gifts look valuable to your eyes (not mine).” (Sura Naml, Verses 36-37)
The envoy returned with all their gifts to Sheba and told Queen Bilqis all the wonders that they had seen and heard.
When Bilqis heard of the grand kingdom of Ptaphet Suleiman (a.s), she realised that he was a prophet of Allah (S.W.T) who had been granted such great powers by Him.
She decided to go to him and see his kingdom for herself. When Prophet Suleiman (a.s) heard of her intentions, he wanted to show her some of the favours Allah (S.W.T) had given him, so that she would believe and accept one God.
He said: “O Chiefs! Which of you will bring me her throne before she arrives?” (Sura Maml. Verse 38)
One of the Jinn offered to do it before Prophet Suleiman (a.s) stood up from his throne, but one of his ministers, Asef Ben Barkhia said: “I will bring it to you in the blink of an eye!” (Sura Naml, Verse 40)
Queen Bilqis’s throne appeared infront of Prophet Suleiman (a.s) before he opened his eyes, even though the distance between the two kingdoms was great as Bilqis ruled over Yemen and he ruled over Palestine.
Prophet Suleiman (a.s) thanked Allah (S.W.T) when he saw this! He then ordered that a palace should be built whose floor was made of clear glass. The floor itself was to be laid over a large pool of water, so that when a person walked over it, it looked like he was walking on water!
When Queen Bilqis arrived, he welcomed her into this palace. As she entered the huge doors, she saw the floor and assumed it was water. Gently lifting her skirt so that it would not get wet, she put out her foot to step into the wondrous room.
Prophet Suleiman (a.s) saw this and smiled. He told her she did not need to do such a thing and explained that the floor was made of glass and it only seemed that the water was on it.
Queen Bilqis was a clever woman and as soon as she heard this, she realised the lesson he was trying to teach her. She understood that she had been mistaken in worshipping the sun when there was a Being who could not be seen but who was much greater than the sun – Allah (S.W.T)! Immediately asking for forgiveness, she surrendered to Allah (S.W.T) saying:”I surrender with Suleiman to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.”(Surd Naml, Verse 44)
was gazing on the sun and its rays
how it seems beautiful over the sea
in myself I want diving between this waves
wet my hands and my feet
rocks is down can’t get there
so I kept watching , enjoying the moment 😉
