Oldest Masjids in the World

10 Oldest Masjid in the World
The designation of the oldest Masjid in the world requires careful use of definitions, and must be divided into two parts, the oldest in the sense of oldest surviving building, and the oldest in the sense of oldest Masjid congregation. Even here, there is the distinction between old Masjid buildings that have been in continuous use as Masjid, and those that have been converted to other purposes; and between buildings that have been in continuous use as Masjid and those that were shuttered for many decades. In terms of congregations, they are distinguished between early established congregations that have been in continuous existence, and early congregations that ceased to exist (wikipedia).

Butterfly Wallpapers - Forgiveness

The more you know yourself, the more you forgive yourself.


The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.


Repentance is another name for aspiration.


In the Bible it says they asked Jesus how many times you should forgive, and he said 70 times 7. Well, I want you all to know that I'm keeping a chart.


It is very easy to forgive others their mistakes; it takes more grit and gumption to forgive them for having witnessed your own.


Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.


Wrongs are often forgiven, but contempt never is. Our pride remembers it forever.


The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.


We read that we ought to forgive our enemies; but we do not read that we ought to forgive our friends.


It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend




Do as the heavens have done, forget your evil;
With them forgive yourself.


Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime,
Therefore, we are saved by hope.
Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
Therefore, we are saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone.
Therefore, we are saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite a virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own;
Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love which is forgiveness.
