Early life Al-Khatib al-Baghdadi was born on May 10, 1002 CE (Jumada al-Thani 24th, 392 AH) in Hanikiya, a village south of Baghdad. He was the son of a preacher of Darzidjan and he began studying at an early age with his father and other shaykhs. Over time he studied other sciences but his primary interest was hadith. There is not a lot of information available about what he did while he was studying under his father. At the age of 20 his father died and he went to Basra to search for hadith. In 1024 he set out on a second journey to Nishapur and he collected more hadith in Rey (Rey, Iran) and Isfahan. It is unclear how long he traveled but his own accounts put him back in Baghdad in 1028. While he was an authority on hadith it was his preaching that gave him fame that would help him later in life. One biographer, Al-Dhahabi, says that teachers and preachers of tradition usually submitted what they had collected to Al-Baghdadi before they used them in their lectures or sermons.

The dynasty was founded by Sebuktigin (Sebük Tigin) upon his succession to rule of territories centered around the city of Ghazni (Ghazna) from his father-in-law, Alp Tigin, a break-away ex-general of the Samanid sultans. Encyclopædia Britannica, "Ghaznavid Dynasty", Online Edition 2007 Sebuktigin's son, Shah Mahmoud (Mahmud of Ghazni), expanded the empire in the region that stretched from the Oxus river to the Indus Valley and the Indian Ocean; and in the west it reached Rey (Rey, Iran) and Hamadan. Under the reign of Mas'ud I (Mas'ud I of Ghazni) it experienced major territorial losses. It lost its western territories to the Seljuqs (Seljuq dynasty) in the Battle of Dandanaqan resulting in a restriction of its holdings to what is now Afghanistan, as well as Balochistan (Balochistan (region)) and the Punjab (Punjab region). In 1151, Sultan Bahram Shah lost Ghazni to Ala'uddin Hussain of Ghor (Ghurids) and the capital was moved to Lahore until its subsequent capture by the Ghurids in 1186. In India He reached Delhi in about a year (1809). His journey took him through Rey (Rey, Iran), Tehran, and other provinces of Iran. He then traveled to the city of Herat in Afghanistan, followed by Kandahar, Kabul, and Peshawar. The great scholars of all these cities with whom he met would often test his knowledge in the sciences of Divine Law (shari'a) and Divine Awareness (ma`rifat), and those of logic, mathematics, and astronomy always found him immensely knowledgeable. When he was young, he fought in the World War I, and was captured by the Russians. In 1923 he moved to U.S. (United States), and studied anthropology at Columbia University. He was co-director of the Oriental Institute (Oriental Institute of Chicago) Hittite (Hittites) Expedition, with H.H. Von der Osten, and later on dug in sites as Tepe Hissar near Damghan in searching for ancient city Hecatompylos, and Rey (Rey, Iran). His most celebrated survey took place in Persepolis (Iran), from 1934 up to 1939. Later, Asfar took advantage of a rebellion in the Samanid army and seized power in Gurgan (presently called Golestan (Golestan Province)) in northern Iran. Asfar also took Amol, Ghazvin, Zanjan, and the city of Rey (Rey, Iran) and appointed Mardavij as the governor of Zanjan. In 927, due to Asfar's increasingly erratic behavior, a powerful opposition emerged against him and the next year Mardavij joined this opposition, defeated Asfar, and took over Asfar's possessions. At this time, Mardavij officially founded the Ziyarid dynasty. Shortly after, Mardavij raised an army to encounter the Abbasid Caliph first in Hamadan and Kashan, and finally in Isfahan (Isfahan (city)).

'''Gateway Stadium''' is a multi-use stadium in Abeokuta, Nigeria. It is currently used mostly for football (football (soccer)) matches. The stadium has a capacity of 17,000 people. Since Alexander Akinyele was born during the height of Ibadan military exploits, to be sent to school in those days in Ibadan was merely to please the European missionaries and it was often a perilous endeavor. It was a period when slavery, though officially outlawed by the British (United Kingdom), was still in vogue in Ibadan, therefore the fear of child kidnapping and ritual murders pervaded the social atmosphere. Given the stated scenario, the few school boys of the time were led to school by warriors. In Alexander's case, the leader of his security escort was a warrior called Babamboni; who always carried the future bishop on his shoulders, for safety to school. He attended St. Peter’s school Ibadan around 1880, and later completed his primary school education at Abobade school, Aroloya Lagos. He graduated first in his class, and was admitted the following year to the famous CMS Grammar School (CMS Grammar School, Lagos) in Lagos, founded by the Church Missionary Society. The Bishop would recall in later life how he was jeered, taunted and ridiculed by his schoolmates in Lagos as “that boy with tribal marks”. He then left to attend St. Andrews College, Oyo (Oyo, Nigeria) for teacher training. Subsequently, he became a teacher, and combined teaching with the duties of a catechist, organist and choirmaster. Bishop Tugwell in his Episcopal visit to Abeokuta in 1903, was so impressed with Alexander Akinyele’s expertise as the organist at a church in Ake, particularly his flawless rendition of the visiting European Bishop’s favorite hymn; that he ordered Alexander to sit for the entrance examination to Fourah Bay College, Sierra Leone. He entered the college on January 25, 1904. In 1906 he was awarded Licentiate in Theology (LTh), and later he obtained his Bachelor of Arts (Dunelm) in 1912, thus becoming the first Ibadan indigene to obtain a University degree.
