I wonder what Imran would say about the Kremlin Mosque and its conversation into what it is today.

I never liked him from the start. Something about him indicates love for shia and fairy tales

Muslims have a lot of fascination with end times so he has capitalised on it.

A top Turkish court on Friday revoked the Byzantine-era Hagia Sophia's status as a museum, clearing the way for it to be turned back into a mosque, the Anadolu state news agency has reported.

The Council of State, which was debating a case brought by a Turkish NGO, on Friday cancelled a 1934 cabinet decision and ruled the 6th century building would be reopened to Muslim worshipping.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had proposed restoring the mosque status of the UNESCO World Heritage site, a focal point of both the Christian Byzantine and Muslim Ottoman empires and now one of the most visited monuments in Turkey.

"It was concluded that the settlement deed allocated it as a mosque and its use outside this character is not possible legally," the Council of State, Turkey's top administrative court, said in a ruling.

"The cabinet decision in 1934 that ended its use as a mosque and defined it as a museum did not comply with laws," it said.

It was not clear if the ruling by the Council of State will go into effect immediately.

Hagia Sophia was first constructed as a cathedral in the Christian Byzantine Empire but was converted into a mosque after the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453.

In the early days of the modern secular Turkish state under Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, it became a museum in 1935.

In response to the ruling, the Russian Orthodox Church on Friday said the decision could lead to even greater divisions.

The United States, Russia and Greece, along with UNESCO, had expressed concerns ahead of the ruling.

Erdogan earlier this month rejected international criticism as an attack on Turkey's sovereignty.

SubhanAllah, critics are worried about the annual income that the Turkish government will lose out on! So what if there was an entrance fee before.

They just don't get it!

There is a Wishing column in Hagia Sophia. The column is said to be damp when touched and have supernatural powers. It is believed that touching the moisture cures many illnesses.

Are we allowed to touch it out of curiosity?

No! :)

The turks will fix the damp/condensation or fit a dehumidifier and that will be the end of that.

"“Woke” Muslims on social media are being utterly stupid condemning Turkey’s decision to REVERT the Aya Sophia to a Mosque, which it had been for over 500 years. What it HADN’T been was a functioning church for nearly 100 years before the Ottomans found it a dilapidated and collapsing mess. Complaining about this is not only pathetic bootlicking to make non-Muslims happy, it’s completely ignorant of history. I’m literally on the road so no time to address it now. Smackdown coming soon!"

آیا صوفیہ میں داخلہ کے لئے اب ٹکٹ کی نہیں بلکہ وضو کی ضرورت ہوگی!

Now you will not need a ticket to enter Ayasofya but will need a wudhu.
