Description: The Blue Mosque in Istanbul with Subhan- Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan- Allahil- Azim in Arabic script.
The story: The Sultanahmet Mosque( also known as the Blue Mosque) is named after Sultan Ahmet I who wished to build an Islamic place of worship that would compete with the Hagia Sophia. The two places of worship now stand side by side for visitors to judge which is the more extraordinary of the architectural marvels.
Sultan Ahmet I initiated the construction of the mosque when he was only nineteen years old. In fact, he was so eager to finish building it that he often assisted to speed up the process. Unfortunately, he died one year after it was completed at the age of twenty seven.
A madrasa, hospital, han, primary school, market, imaret and tomb of Sultan Ahmet I and his wife and three sons were all part of the original mosque’s complex but many of them were later torn down in the nineteenth century.
RasoolAllah (peace be upon him) said, there are two statements that are light on the tongue to remember, heavy on the scales and are dear to the Merciful: " Subhan-Allahi wa bihamdihi, Subhan-Allahil-Azhim" ("Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, and Allah, the Greatest is free from imperfection") reported by Abu Hurairah (R.A.).
