survived from more than eight centuries of Muslim and Arab presence in Spain. Individual authors in Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt created original works by imitating the classical ''maqama''. The most prominent of these was al-Muwaylihi, whose book, ''The Hadith of Issa ibn Hisham'' (حديث عيسى بن هشام), critiqued Egyptian society in the period of Ismail (Ismail of Egypt). This work constitutes the first stage in the development of the modern Arabic novel. This trend was furthered by Georgy Zeidan, a Lebanese Christian writer who immigrated with his family to Egypt following the Damascus riots of 1860. In the early twentieth century, Zeidan serialized his historical novels in the Egyptian newspaper ''al-Hilal''. These novels were extremely popular because of their clarity of language, simple structure, and the author's vivid imagination. Two other important writers from this period were Khalil Gibran and Mikha'il Na'ima, both of whom incorporated philosophical musings into their works. *4 June - Treaty of Trianon, Treaty of Peace between the Allies and Hungary. *14 July - France declares that Faisal I of Syria is deposed and occupies Damascus and Aleppo. *21 July - Interallied Mission to Poland is launched. thumb The White Minaret (Image:Weißes Minarett, Qadian (Minarat ul-Massih).jpg) at Qadian According to Islamic tradition, Jesus (Jesus in Ahmadiyya Islam), upon his second advent, would descend with or near a White Minaret disputably to the east of Damascus or in the eastern side of Damascus. Translation of Sahih Muslim, Book 41: Kitab al-Fitan wa Ashart as-Sa’ah (Book Pertaining to the Turmoil and Portents of the Last Hour) Ghulam Ahmad argued that this Hadith does not explain whether the minaret will be within the eastern side of Damascus or to the eastern side of the city. According to him, this prophecy was fulfilled with his advent in Qadian, a town situated to the east of Damascus, and the significance of the minaret symbolic. The minaret, according to him, symbolised the spread of the "light of Islam", its message reaching far and wide, and the "supremacy of Islam", which was to tower up as it were like a minaret in the time of the promised one. The prophecy is also believed to be pointing to an age of enlightenment and one where there are numerous facilities for communication and transport, thereby making conveyance and proselytising easier. This was reflective of the physical purpose that minarets were used in medieval Islamic societies, the efficient communication of the call to prayer to a wider audience in the locality. The British Government and Jihad, by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Ghulam Ahmad claimed that God had revealed to him: Given Kufa's opposition to Damascus, Kufan traditionists had their own take on Umayyad history. The historian Abu Mikhnaf al-Azdi (d. 774) compiled their accounts into a rival history, which became popular under Abbasid rule. This history does not survive but later historians like Tabari quoted from it extensively. It was revealed later that Ayman had missed the audition in Cairo, Egypt by one day & had one last chance to audition in Damascus, Syria. The Aramaeans who lived outside their homelands apparently followed the traditions of the country where they settled. The King of Damascus, for instance, employed Phoenician sculptors and ivory-carvers. In tell Halaf-Guzana, the palace of Kapara, an Aramaean ruler (9th century B.C.), was decorated with orthostats and with statues that display a mixture of Mesopotamian, Hittite (Hittites) and Hurrian influences. Soon after he was blocked by the intervention of Russia, however. As the result of endless discussions between the representatives of the powers, the Porte and the pasha, the Convention of Kutaya was signed on May 14, 1833, by which the sultan agreed to bestow on Muhammad Ali the pashaliks of Syria, Damascus, Aleppo and Itcheli, together with the district of Adana. The announcement of the pasha's appointment had already been made in the usual way in the annual firman (firman (decree)) issued on May 3. Adana was bestowed on Ibrahim under the style of muhassil, or collector of the crown revenues, a few days later. Those people are identified by the Sumerian logogram ''SA.KAS'' in most of the letters, and by the Akkadian name ''Hapiru'' in a few from the area of Jerusalem. They appear to be active on a broad area including Syria (at Upe near Damascus), Phoenicia (Sumur (Tell Kazel), Batrun and Byblos), and to the south as far as Jerusalem. None of the kings of the region, with the possible exception of one Abdi-Ashirta, are called ''Habiru'' or ''SA.KAS''. birth_date WikiPedia:Damascus commons:دمشق
