^^^ sample..

Admittedly I hated how they've to apologize in the end or say in spite of all that's going on this abridges gaps. Westerners create the gaps, they create the wars, they create the animosity & hatred so there's no reason to apologize.. none whatsoever.

same they recently built the shard in london

its close to where I live so I see it every day. They call it the "Mirror of London" as its suppose to reflect back everything it see's and create a sort of illuminated look. But honestly, these western designs are nothing compared to our islamic architects.

I don't know how to explain what I like.. My uncle designed part of the new cairo airport especially the landscape.. so much goes into it, I didn't even know how much until I looked into his sketches ma shaa Allah.. I like architecture with mathematical secrets you know.. and play on light and dark.. with windows done just so..The structure itself becomes uplifting almost alive with you..I don't like office buildings with no ventilation as they're generally monolithic and not comforting..

Allah swt created us with all we need to know.. we just need to tap into it-- all the knowledge of the world is already in us.. did you not read suret al baqara where Allah swt taught Adam the names of everything? What do you think that means?. I know some members here who have never been to college that can oneup the best of them.. Believe me it is not a matter of memory.. it is just about being relaxed enough to get into that other part of you, the occult part that does amazing things...
consider that the best minds in the world those that have shaped it weren't even literate..
so it is really something to think about..

and yes may Allah swt complete our knowledge and make it useful for our deen and dounia ameen ya rabb

Ameeen.

I know. Indeed she is. Alhamdulillah. That's my sister! :wub:

I will have to check out that 15 minute clip soon in shaa Allah.

There is a Catholic church around the corner from my house that looks exactly like a masjid if it weren't for the cross on top of the dome...
