HAPPY WEEKEND READING. Saudi Arabia Must Contain Yet Another Religious Sect Generally, Sunni attacks against Shia are fairly common throughout the Middle East and South Asia, especially now during the holy month of Muharram. But that is not the case in Saudi Arabia, where sectarian violence typically takes place between state security forces and unruly Shia. If non-state Salafist actors are now attacking Shia, it means Riyadh could be burdened with yet another violent group to contain. Saudi leaders are trying to contain the Shia community to temper the rise of Iran and its Arab Shia allies in Iraq, Lebanon, Bahrain and, more recently, Yemen. Sentencing al-Nimr to death was a key part of Riyadh’s strategy toward this end, and the Saudis have been bracing for backlash as Shia across the region, particularly Iran, have reacted against the kingdom, warning it of dire consequences. The last thing Riyadh needs is non-state Salafist elements clashing with the Shia, undermining the efforts of the state and fur ...
The term Rajput is traditionally applied to the original Suryavanshi, Chandravanshi and Agnivanshi clans, the ancient Hindu ruling dynasties of South Asia. Muslim conquest of South Asia The history of the Muslim Rajput coincides with the Muslim conquest of South Asia. The Rajputs started converting to Islam due to various reasons beginning with the conquest of Indus Valley from Multan to Debal by Muhammad bin Qasim, the Arab general of Umayyad Caliphate from Taif(now in Saudi Arabia) in 712 AD. At the time of arrival of Islam, the north and western regions of South Asia were ruled by Rajput clans. The Rajputs and Muslim armies fought many battles for the control of South Asia. Sultan Mahmud of Ghazni conquered the regal power of Rajput Maharaja Jayapala Shahi of the North Western South Asian(modern day Pakistan) region by 1026, through successive battles. Towards the end of the 12th century the Turkic Shahbudin Muhammad of Ghor conquered Delhi after defeating last defense of the Rajputs in the second batt ...
Who am I ? MIRZA is a title of Persian origin, denoting the rank of a high Nobleman or Prince. It is usually translated into English as a Royal Prince of Blood... Biography MIRZA is usually translated into English as a royal or imperial Prince of the Blood. It signified male-line descent and relationship to the Imperial Families of Turkey, Persia and later South Asia and was the title borne by members of the highest aristocracies in Tatar states, such as the Khanates of Kazan and Astrakhan. Under Catherine the Great, empress of Russia, the Murzas gained equal rights with the Russian nobility due to their extreme wealth. Abdul Mirza was given the title Prince Yusupov, and his descendant Prince Felix Yusupov married a niece of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia. The word Mīrzā is derived from the Persian term ‘Amīrzāde which literally means "child of the ‘Amīr" or "child of the ruler" in Persian. ‘Amīrzād in turn consists of the Arabic title ‘Amīr (engl. Emir), meaning "commander", and the Persian s ...
The Sunni-Shia split in Pakistan was widened and politicised because of alliances with Saudi Arabia and proselytising by Iran after its 1979 revolution. Now it is sustained by social divisions and by the foreign policy of India. Only 20% of Pakistan's population are Shia Muslims, but their conflict with the Sunni majority is an existential challenge for the country. Its founders envisioned a land that would welcome Muslims from all over South Asia, and the rift is a threat to Islamic unity.  Sectarianism, as the Sunni-Shia conflict is called in Pakistan, is so contrary to the spirit of the Pakistani project that it could only be an import. Though latent tensions existed within British India, they never got in the way of the ideology of the Muslim League. Its leader, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founding father of Pakistan, was a member of the Ismaili branch of Shia Islam, and the country has had other Shia leaders, drawn from the political class, as well as the military, like Muhammad Yahya Khan, president ...

Family System, QURESHI O mankind! WE created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in the sight of ALLAH is the greatest of you in piety. ALLAH is All-Knowing, All Aware [Quran 49:13] QURESHI:- Qureshi (also rendered as Quraishi, Qureshy, Quraishy, Qoraishi, Qoreshi, Koraishi, Kureshi, Kureshy, Kureishi, Coreish, Urdu: قریشی) is a Muslim family name that originates from Arabs in Saudi Arabia and indicates descent from the Quraish which was the leading noblest tribe in Mecca at the time of birth of Muhammad[2] when Muhammad’s grandfather[3] was the head of tribe. Quresh is also the name of 106th Surah of the Qur'an. The Qureshi family diaspora is spread all around the world. Due to Arab conquest into foreign lands, the Qureshi family was able to establish itself in these lands and exists in many parts of South Asia, particularly in India , Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. The descen ...
Saudi Arabia it is some where in south west of Asia hot, , Desert and camel but it not any more like this
O'Reiilly is right. Saudi Arabia has already said it won't allow Israel to use its airspace, we've had ongoing issues with Pakistan in allowing us to use its airspace and highway system to get supplies to our troops in Afghanistan, and only someone who either knows very little about the Middle East, South Asia, and Islam ( or one who doesn't care) would overlook the fact that Iran will use an invasion as a rallying cry to other nations in the region with Islamic majorities against us. I have to give O'Reilly credit. It seems that he's thought long and hard about the danger of invading Iran and that he's done quite a bit of reading on the history of the ME and S. Asia.
Mecca's culture has been affected by the large number of pilgrims that arrive annually, and thus boasts a rich cultural heritage. The locals speak Hejazi Arabic, but languages from all over the Muslim world can be found amongst the pilgrims. As a result of the vast numbers of pilgims coming to the city each year (many of whom remain permanently), Mecca has become by far the most diverse city in the Muslim world. In contrast to the rest of Saudi Arabia, and particularly Nejd, Mecca has, according to the New York Times, become "a striking oasis" of free thought and discussion and, also, of "unlikely liberalism" as "Meccans see themselves as a bulwark against the creeping extremism that has overtaken much Islamic debate".[8] The first press was brought to Mecca in 1885 by Osman Nuri Paşa, an Ottoman Wāli. During the Hashemite period, it was used to print the city's official gazette, al-Qibla. The Saudi regime expanded this press into a larger operation, introducing the new Saudi official gazette Umm al-Qur ...
Mr. President, Mr. Secretary-General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman: I would like to begin today by telling you about an American named Chris Stevens. Chris was born in a town called Grass Valley, California, the son of a lawyer and a musician. As a young man, Chris joined the Peace Corps, and taught English in Morocco. He came to love and respect the people of North Africa and the Middle East, and he would carry that commitment throughout his life. As a diplomat, he worked from Egypt to Syria; from Saudi Arabia to Libya. He was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked – tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking Arabic and listening with a broad smile. Chris went to Benghazi in the early days of the Libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. As America’s representative, he helped the Libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for a future in which the rights of all Libyans would be respected. A ...

Indian Muslims : Babar Or Ram? Indian Muslims are today at a crossroad. The destruction of the Buddhist statues in Afghanistan has shown to the world in general – and to the Muslims of India in particular– that Islam still considers Buddhist and Hindu statues, temples and worshipers as Infidels, to be razed and eliminated. For the Taliban and those who support them, covertly or overtly, nothing has changed since Mohamed broke the first ‘idol’ statues in the 7th century and the task has been left unfinished. The suicide attacks on the Indian army by Islamic groups (today banned in England), supported and financed by Pakistan, in spite of India’s unilateral ceasefire, should also prove that the Islamic injunction of jihad is still very much alive and in practice in much of the Islamic world, from Sudan to Libya, from Saudi Arabia to Pakistan. The question that Indian Muslims should ask themselves now is simple: “who are we” ? Amongst the 120 millions of Muslims in India, only a tiny percentage ...

The Great Mosque, Mecca Mecca (Makkah in Arabic) is the center of the Islamic world and the birthplace of both the Prophet Muhammad and the religion he founded. Located in the Sirat Mountains of central Saudi Arabia and 45 miles inland from the Red Sea port of Jidda (Jeddah), ancient Mecca was an oasis on the old caravan trade route that linked the Mediterranean world with South Arabia, East Africa, and South Asia. By Roman and Byzantine times it had developed into an important trade and religious center, and was known as Macoraba. The sacred land in which Mecca and Medina are located, known as the Hijaz, is the western region of the Arabian peninsula, a narrow tract of land about 875 miles long east of the Red Sea with the Tropic of Cancer running through its center. The land is called Hijaz, meaning barrier, because its backbone, the Sarat Mountains consist of volcanic peaks and natural depressions creating a stark and rugged environment dominated by intense sunlight and little rain fall. According to a ...
