Imam Ali Mosque

on March 8, 2014

postcards2_3_2This card, arriving a day after Milad’s first card, shows the Imam Ali Mosque in Najaf, Iraq. It is considered the third holiest location for the Shia branch of Islam as Muhammed’s cousin, the first Imam is said to be buried there. Although the site has survived through a lot in its time, especially in recent years, it has retained its glory and beauty effectively. Thank you so much Milad, I love this card!
