i assume you mean the one in my avatar?

it's prophet Muhammad's seal, it was on his ring, he used it as a signature when he sent messages to neighboring Kings,

literally it says, from the Top: "God Messenger Muhammad" this sentence doesn't make sense in arabic, what it meant was "Muhammad, Messenger of God" he placed the Name of God at the top as a sign of respect to God.

Welcome to the forum! +1 for joining.


This a slightly lively community. You may not always get a quick response to your posts...you may not get a response at all but this community is still alive, however small it is. So, feel free to jump into any discussion that suits your fancy and I look forward to your thoughts and ideas.




P.S.


Now, having said all that, let me be the first to tell you that the American who made that video that caused the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was arrested so everything is good now, right?




I have no reason to say what I just said in my P.S. so please don't take it personally. It has no reflection on anything pertinent to you, me...or this forum. I simply said it in an attempt to illustrate reality. In reality...things constantly change. Remember that.

lol my story is very loooooong and boring, and is often described as Weird and unusual but here goes:

I'm Greek/Algerian from my mother's side, and Libyan from my Dad's. it all began with Markos (Μαρκος) The Father of the Grand Father of My GrandFather, who was a greek born in Patras, During the Ottoman Empire, but then he immigrated to Algeria after Converting To Islam, he married an Algerian Woman from the Sennusi Tribe, he insisted that he would name his children with Greek Names, but after a long discussion they decided to name them with Two Names, Greek and Arabic. Therefore, his Son was Named Nicolaos and Muhammad, it's a stupid solution really but..

anyways, Nicolaos also married from a specific house in the Sennusi Tribe, and so did his offspring after him, and while they still did that Two name thing, The Greek Family was Arabized and merged with the Arabic one under the new name "Al-Ghazali". which means "The Erotic Poet", the reason for this was that Nicolaos was simply an Erotic Poet lol.

After Time Passed on, Ahmad (or Yiorgos his greek name ) Al-Ghazali immigrated to Libya to Join the Jihad Against the Italian Invaders, and later the Leader of the Jihad Omar Almuktar (My Grandfather from my dad's side),  married his Daughter, and the two families continued to marry from each other until i was Born!

to Muhammad (my father) and Maryam ( or Μαρια, which is the Greek word for Maria)


The Miserable End,

So, you're saying that one of your grandfathers was played by Anthony Quinn in a movie about his life?

That is way cool.

Did you grow up in Libya? Are you there now? If so, I'd love to hear more about living under Gaddafi and how it's been there since he was deposed. Difficult times for the people there...

Peace.

oh yeah, i was born in Benghazi, lived there for about 15 years, after that i stayed in Algeria for 6 years, i then returned to Benghazi just a month before the uprisings,

Quote
Are you there now?

yep, hard luck, right? ||cheesy||

i just returned from Patras a week ago. the prizes hit the Roof there, but still in general better than Libya lol.

under Gaddafi's reign Libya was the last place a reasonable man would think of going to, i can't get how we managed to survive really, he breached every aspect of our lives, you can't talk about News around the world, no you tube, no Facebook, no Twitter no nothing ( however the restriction was lifted in 2010), he had those spooky supporters of his with their bob Marley hairstyle walking around the streets, hoping to catch someone criticizing him or reading a newspaper so they could fly him to Tripoli, specifically to Abu Salim Prison.

Education wasn't even there, all students from all ages were forced to study about the Accomplishments of the Brotherly Leader, if you get a full mark in the Subject " The Jamahiriyya Society" your good to go, if not, you must study the whole year again, regardless of your marks in Maths, Biology etc.

another terrible thing is that citizens from 20 years onwards were forced to go and fight in Chad during the Chad-Libya War.

and yet another terrible thing was that even Mosque Imams were tortured for criticizing his Book "the Green Book", and were forced to curse the Qur'an and step on it, better still, they had to praise the Leader and his Green Book. then publicly ask forgiveness from him.

 and that is not to mention poverty and ignorance etc that plagued the Country for 40 years, four decades of hell..

although after the Revolution Freedom of speech is better when compared under Gaddafi's libya, the situation in general now is far worse than it was under his reign, Terrorism is what rules in Benghazi, while i'm typing this reply, i heard 47 explosions ( i literally counted them ), Police officers, Army members, are being killed everyday, Osama Bin Laden's pics are all over the city, and you can also hear American Drones flying at sunrise! ||smiley|| . who are these Terrorists? well, most of them are Libyan, you can say 85%. the others are from Mali and Syria ( yes, Syria).

the only city that is COMPLETLY under control of these terrorists is Derna. they aren't allowed to watch TV, aren't allowed to enter mosques without growing a beard, and aren't even allowed to celebrate the Birthday of Prophet Muhammad ( they regard celebrating birthdays as innovation, and in the Takfir Doctrine , Innovation is Haram)

so you can say Libya now is a "Zoo in the Desert"

And I'm sorry that my governments supported Gaddafi while it suited them.

I hope things get better for you.
