Istanbul dec 2006 3250.jpg

view map

At the entrance are two fine inscriptions.

A viewer wrote me: I can only read the image on right side. It is a "Hadith" (I think "quotation" is meant Dick O.) that saidana Mohammad the prophet said, he said "If anyone be a good muslim so each good behavior he do write on his paper as a 10 to 700 alms and each bad behavior he do write on his paper as it is only one till we meet Allah after death," and here he tries to teach Muslims to act good and honestly and encourage them for doing that by telling them that you will get a lot of alms then can live in heaven and paradise which all hope to live ".

It is not quite clear what's meant but I think it gives some approximation.
