Madinah fish market1

It is He who made the sea subservient to you so that you can eat fresh flesh from it…(16:14)

…love this place with all the yells and smells and slippery alley ways…the rudimentary ‘kitchens’…the camaraderie seen between traders…the fresh produce…the simplicity…low overheads…scary wiring…unique signs…the delicious take home fish enjoyed by the many visitors taken here for the experience…but word is that this fish market is soon to be demolished…Allahu Alum…

All good is from Allah Ta’ala whereas mistakes are from this humble speck. May Allah Ta’ala Bless all readers, bringing you all closer to Him and His Rasul SallAllahu alaihi wasallam.  May He accept our humble efforts and grant us the capacity to be good and do good. Ameen.

    Thank you for this fine collection of illustrations, reflecting commerce in the blessed city.

    I hope you are in the best of iman and health. Apologies for the long absence, it’s been rather hectic renovating the home.

    Please convey a special Salam to finest creation and I hope that we are still on the blessed list and the list sees the blessed sun rays of madina tul nabi.

    Ma asalama

      Wa ‘alaikumus Salam Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuhu,
      Dear Brother Ali and family,
      Alhumdulillah ‘ala kulli hal and Alhumdulillah for renovations. Insha’Allah they are less messy than what has been happening here!
      Yes the list is only ever added to not subtracted 🙂 There are even names there who have left the fold of Islam but when I come to their names I make even more fervent du’a for Allah Ta’ala to bring them back. Easy for Him SubhanAllah!
      Wassalamu alaikum
