What the Turkish government should do is remove everything Christian and hand it over to the Christians as a goodwill gesture and say that they have removed it safely in order to prevent others from permanently damaging their artifacts.

They can say that there may be extremists, terrorists or even angry people who could cause more damage than needed, and therefore, everything is removed and preserved.


The Christians won't have much of an opportunity to complain about this method.

21JULY2020: Turkey invites foreign leaders for prayers at Hagia Sophia


www.hurriyetdailynews.com/turkey-invites-foreign-leaders-...



As the first Friday prayers are set to be held in Hagia Sophia this week, the Turkish government has invited numerous foreign leaders to attend the opening.

After its reconversion as a mosque, preparations are still ongoing in Hagia Sophia for the first Muslim prayers that are due to be held on July 24.

About 1,000 to 1,500 people are expected to attend the Friday Prayers, which Ali Erbaş, head of Turkey's Directorate of Religious Affairs (Diyanet), will recite.

The prayers will be held in line with coronavirus measures as face masks, hand disinfectants and prayer rugs will be distributed to the participants.

Besides from President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli, deputies and members of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and Turkish ministers are expected to attend the Friday prayers.

Many leaders from numerous countries have also been invited to Hagia Sophia. Presidents of countries such as Azerbaijan and Qatar are expected to attend the prayers.

Erdoğan paid a visit to Hagia Sofia on July 19, before the first Muslim prayers. In a lightning visit billed as an inspection, Erdoğan took stock of the conversion work, the president’s office said, providing pictures showing scaffolding inside the building.

Frescos, mosaics to be covered with curtains

The mosaics and frescoes in Hagia Sophia will be covered by curtains during the prayers.


The curtain’s mechanism will be similar to those used in movie industry. Accordingly, “not even a nail would be pounded” when installing the system.

Accordingly, the 6.5-meter Theotokos and 7.5-meter Gabriel mosaics, which are seen from the ground floor, will be opened and closed with curtains, for one minute each.

The laser technology which was mulled over initially has been foregone.

The scaffold, which was founded for the restoration, will also be covered with curtains.

Meanwhile, the omphalion opus sectile panel will be left under a rug, that will be placed for the prayers.

Nevertheless, in order to prevent the mosaic from being damages, two layers of felt will be put under the rug.

The rugs, which will be used in Hagia Sophia, are being produced in western Manisa province in one of Turkey’s first factories where rugs are being weaved with machinery.

Made from 100 percent indigenous wool, the duck-head-green rugs carry motives of 17th-century Ottoman era.

Jazakillah brother Muadh. I also checked Turkish newspapers i couldnt find this news Turkish version.

Not much has changed except it is now confirmed that those mosaics and frescos will be covered with a curtain during Salah time. Still due to economical and political reasons nobody dares to touch those mosaics and frescos... Indeed very sad!

Due to Barakat of praying Salah in Hagia Sofia it change the hearts of our president Ameen. There is nothing we can do other than making dua.

Maybe Erdogan is playing the long game? Maybe this is just the initial phase leading up to something else? Inviting other muslim leaders to the opening prayer feels like a power move to me.

Or maybe I'm just being too hopeful?

Brother xs11ax this feeling is natural. I do understand it. However, when the Turkish government did not convert Trabzon Hagia Sofia properly despite not having economic or political significance, im extremely doubtful about the possibility of Istanbul Hagia Sofia being a long game.

Or maybe he's just leaving it there so that when Constantinople falls to the kuffar again they don't have to install the frescos again. Save them the effort, you know? Also when it is recaptured by Muslims under Mahdi, maybe Erdogan is hoping to reserve the honor of destroying those abominations for that blessed army.

We all share your feelings and anguish, we do not like symbols which are against the Tawheed of Allah Ta'ala.

Hafiz Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani (rahimahullah) said: "Every day from the ten days [of Dhu'l Hijjah] is better than other days of the year, and the day of Jumu'a therein is better than the day of Jumu'a at other times, due to two virtues coming together therein."
