We Need Your Help: Fundraiser 2021

Hi there! Until February 2021 all the costs were being funded by the volunteers, and we do not run ads. But recently due to the rise in costs it is becoming difficult to cover the costs. If everyone reading this would donate just $5, our fundraiser would be over in less than an hour.

No donation is small, you can make your contributions here. :)

al-Asbat Minaret

Minarah al-Asbat (مئذنة باب الأسباط), also known as the minaret of Saladin (المئذنة الصلاحية) is the last of the al-Aqsa minarets, it is composed of a cylindrical stone shaft (built later by the Ottomans), which springs up from a rectangular Mamluk-built base on top of a triangular transition zone. The shaft narrows above the muezzin's balcony, and is dotted with circular windows, ending with a bulbous dome. The dome was reconstructed after the 1927 Jericho earthquake.
