Al Khllani Mosque

This mosque got hit today by the faith rejecters and Saddam’s followers. Which killed a lot of innocent people? This historic mosque is located on Aljumhuria street and Alkhalanee square and close to one of the oldest churches in Baghdad. There are a lot of histories about this mosque, it was built almost 700 years ago. This name came after one of the messenger for imam Mahdi [AF] it’s for Muslims. The name Alsayad Mohammed Osman Alasadee Alkhalanee, he is one of the followers of the twelve imams also he was told by Abu Jafaar. He was religious leader and scholars for the Shia’s sector. He was a merchant and he took over after his father. The word khalanee is related to trade Alkhal vinegar. Also they named him a grocer. This famous (mesgid) has the largest library for books in Baghdad. In politely this place was the head center of all uprising last years against Saddam’s regime. They built an old school to take care of literacy also they have a high dome and the Karbala ceramic there all over the walls. When we were young we used to go to listen to speeches from Al shaikh Ahmed Alwaalee. People come from all over it gets so crowded its hard for people to walk around. Everyday there is a group prayer. Alkhalanee library built by one of the Shia scholars you could see everyone coming in to read and to borrow books. This library had two stories Alsayad Selah Alhaydaree he was the first one who built this library and supported all the 1940’s. The first exhibit for Iraqi writers was held in that place. Alsayad Alkhalanee dug his own grave along time ago by himself and made a home for himself. And he gave his authority to Alsayad Hussein ibin Alrooh. The large minerate built in the 1930’s. Alkhalanee area is a poor area down earth people when we heard the news today, why do they go after the holy mosques it looks like there isn’t any discriminate hitting. These places are supposed to be gods places to me these sins are continuation for the tatars who invaded Baghdad along time ago. I want to ask the security in Iraq why they can’t insistently check all trucks pick ups around these areas also I suggest they put huge blocks of concrete around every mosque and church to avoid these incidents.
Finally I will say god save our mosques our homes and Iraqi people may god have mercy for all.
