GRANADA

Qenza Mat - Granada is named after the last Muslim city in Europe, located in the Kingdom of Andalusia and home to one of the most powerful Muslim kingdoms in history. It was the Nasrid Kingdom (1232 - 1492) that built the Alhambra, the palace complex that still stands today. For two of more centuries, the Nasrids ruled peacefully over a myriad of cultures; Jewish, Muslim, Arab and Christian communities coexisted peacefully. Incidentally, granada means pomegranate in Spanish.

6:99

And it is He who sends down rain from the sky, and We produce thereby the growth of all things. We produce from it greenery from which We produce grains arranged in layers. And from the palm trees - of its emerging fruit are clusters hanging low. And [We produce] gardens of grapevines and olives and pomegranates, similar yet varied. Look at [each of] its fruit when it yields and [at] its ripening. Indeed in that are signs for a people who believe. (Sahih International)

DAMASCUS

Surah Al-Tin

By the fig and the olive

And [by] Mount Sinai

And [by] this secure city of [Makkah]

We have certainly created man

in the best of stature;

Then We return him to the lowest of low,

Except for those who believe and do righteous deeds, for they will have reward uninterrupted.

So what yet causes you to deny

the Recompense?

Is not Allah the most just of judges?

SAMUDERA

Qenza Mat - Samudera is named after an Islamic harbour kingdom on the north coast of Sumatra from the 13th to 15th centuries, known then as Samudera Pasai. It is believed that the word Samudera is Sanskrit for ocean. Samudera had its glory years when it was ruled by Ratu Nahrasiyah (1406-1428). Her gravestone, which still exists today, reads, “This is the grave of a brilliant holy woman, a Queen respected by all …” The minor kingdom exported its language, an early form of Malay written in Jawi which eventually became the lingua franca of Malaysia and Indonesia.

18.109

Say, “If the sea were ink for [writing] the words of my Lord, the sea would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even if We brought the like of it as supplement.”
(Sahih International)
