Shaykh ‘Abdus-Salam al-Asmar’s Mosque
In the city of Zleetin, Libya (about two hours drive from Tripoli). These are some beautiful tiles found on the walls surrounding the grave of Libya’s most well-known sage and spiritual master, Shaykh ‘Abdus-Salam al-Asmar (or al-Fayturi). Nearby is the mosque and Qur’an school established by the Shaykh.

The Light
My older brother Aiman looking for the light. This photograph was taken at the Baltimore Aquarium when my mother and I went to visit him. Unfortunately, he has yet to admit that this is a nice photo.

Ahmad Pasha Mosque
These are some tiles at the Ahmad Pasha Mosque, which was one of my favorite mosques in all of Tripoli. It is an older mosque built by a Turkish pasha. The mosque is found at the entrance of the Old City.
The designs all around the mosque are beautiful, and praying there at night was very enjoyable (I particularly miss the melodic recitation of the Qur’an and the dhikr at the end of each prayer!).

Lanterns
These hand-made lanterns are sold in the Tripoli’s Old City. I wanted to get some to bring back with me, but they are really expensive! I love the colors of the lights through the colored glass.
Lanterns are light, captured.

The Clock Tower
This is a landmark clock tower in Tripoli’s Old City. I loved the blue glass windows and the whiteness of the clock tower itself. I loved the Old City and would walk by this clock tower on my way to the Uthman Pasha school to attend classes and gatherings of dhikr (remembrance of God).

Fanā’

I met this Shaykh in Libya at my aunt’s house - her husband knows him. The entire time this man was completely engulfed in the remembrance of God. So much so that it seemed he was unaware of what was going on around him. I was intrigued by his state.
The next day I saw him at Friday Prayers at the oldest mosque in Tripoli. He sat there, remembering God. I came and said salam and shook his hand. Once again, I felt that he was unaware of my presence. All he did was remember and invoke God.
