and Mecca. His successors, his nephew Maurice and Philip of Milly, added towers and protected the north and south sides with two deep rock-cut ditches (the southern ditch also serving as a cistern). The most notable Crusader architectural feature surviving is the north wall, into which are built immense arched halls on two levels. These were used for living quarters and stables, but also served as a fighting gallery overlooking the castle approach and for shelter against missiles from siege

scale battle

and Meccans had fought several smaller skirmishes in late 623 and early 624, as the Muslim ''ghazawāt (ghazw)'' plundering raids grew increasingly commonplace, but this was their first large-scale battle. Muhammad was leading a raiding party against a caravan when he was surprised by a much larger Quraishi army. Advancing to a strong defensive position (Defense (military)), Muhammad's well-disciplined men managed to shatter the Meccan lines, killing several important leaders including Muhammad's chief opponent, Amr ibn Hishām. For the early Muslims, the battle was extremely significant because it was the first sign that they might eventually overcome their enemies in Mecca, one of the richest and most powerful pagan (Paganism) cities in pre-Islamic Arabia.

Islamic tradition holds that previous prophets were associated with the city, and that the Islamic prophet Muhammad visited the city on a nocturnal journey. Due to such significance it was the first Qibla (direction of prayer) for Muslims and the prophet Muhammad designated the Al-Aqsa for pilgrimage. coordinates_display title location Mecca, Saudi Arabia spire

to the Ottomans conquest of the city by Umar, the Herodian enclosure was converted into a mosque and placed under the control of a waqf. The waqf continues to control and maintain most of the site. Uthman was born into the Umayyad clan (Umayyad Caliphate) of Mecca, a powerful family of the Quraish (Quraysh (tribe)) tribe. He was a companion of Muhammad who assumed the role of leader (caliph) of the Muslim Empire at the age of 65 following Umar ibn al-Khattab. Under his leadership, the empire expanded into Fars in 650 (present-day Iran), some areas of Khorasan (Greater Khorasan) (present-day Afghanistan) in 651 and the conquest of Armenia was begun in the 640s.

of Bagdad. (Baghdad)...Caliph of Araby...Lord of the Palace...Defender of Islam...Scourge of the Infidels...Mogul (Magnate) of Mecca...Exalted Prince of...' Cap stops him and asks what he is doing here, why he grabs people, and where he takes them. Plunda says that is his secret. He opens a magic bottle, releasing black smoke that becomes a powerful genie that he orders to keep the Marvels busy while he escapes. The genie uproots a factory chimmney and blows soot at the Marvels. Mary flies down it to get to his face, but the genie moves the funnel so she flies into a wall. She gets the smokestack, telling the other Marvels to keep after the Genie. The giant (giant (mythology)) picks up cars and piles them on each other. Jr. uses an emergency ramp to get the cars down. Cap finds the genie is smoke and he has trouble fighting it, so he disperses the genie by making a tempest, however Pasha Plunda got away. Next day people are being taken though the carpet is not seen. The Marvels find Plunda is hiding above the clouds. Seeing them, he rubs his magic lamp, and wishes for the city below to spin like a top, faster and faster. The ground under the city starts turning—the Marvels unable to stop anything without wrecking it. It spins faster and faster. At least one man wonders whether the Marvel Family has deserted them, but they have got to a factory. Cap tells them to grab tools and materials for work, though Mary is getting dizzy (dizziness). Cap tells her to fight it so they can finish a giant brake. They press the rim where the ground spins under the city, stopping the spinning. Then they start travelling from Earth for a new mission. Cap thinks Plunda takes his captives back to the past, so they go to the Rock of Eternity and travel to 1000 AD when Bagdad was at its height. When getting to the Queen City of Old Arabia they find it deserted. They find a sign saying 'Beware the Black Plague (Black Death)! Flee if you can!' and Mary thinks a dreadful epidemic has struck here. However Cap then hears American English, and the Marvels see the kidnapped English from their own time. They are told the Menfolk have to work in the palace as slaves. Quite lucky the Marvels arrived at exactly the right point in time. Meanwhile the men are being forced to work, and when one is whipped, he says he's a free (liberty) America (United States)n citizen and will not take this from the Pasha or anybody else. The Marvels then burst in and attack the Pasha, who reveals that his former people rebelled against him, calling him a tyrant. Even his guards did so, so he used his lamp to kill them all with the Black Plague. But he was then King of an empty city, and so raided the Future for slaves for his Kingdom (Monarchy). His lamp can give him Jewel (Gemstone)s, Riches (Wealth), Palaces, but not people. When Cap says they will stop this, he uses the lamp to summon Demons, who will attack the people unless the Marvels chase them down. Mary sends one into the fire by pulling the carpet from under him, Jr. decapitates one with a scimitar, and Cap uses his strength to knock down many. Another creature, a huge pterodactyl-like creature, attacks so the Marvels use a minaret as a weapon and impale the Monster's chest. Cap says while the Pasha has the lamp they cannot get near him, and Mary says they need the carpet and lamp to get the people back to their own time. Cap says they should transform into the kids to get the lamp, and they so do. At night they sneak into the palace. They hear the Pasha is asleep, so Billy says they will get the Carpet, Lamp, and Bottle. But his magic mirror warns him as it never sleeps, so he uses a ball and chain to knock the kids out. When they come to they are his helpless prisoners, bound with their mouths gagged, and being locked in a cell. From his bottle he calls a fire genie, that touches the Iron bars of the dungeon, making them glow red hot (Incandescence) and radiating heat at the trio. The cell becomes hotter, cooking the Marvels. Suddenly they see a boy at the bars of the neighbouring cell, who is speaking Arabic which they cannot understand. Billy then realises the boy wants a ring and uses his feet to give it to him, causing him to cool the bars, making them icey. But the genie burns its way through, however the Marvels stretch forward and let their gags burn away first, allowing them to become the Marvel Family, who blows the genie out. Cap frees the boy, who claims he is Aladdin, rightful owner of the magic lamp and carpet. After the Pasha stole them he placed the boy in there. Cap asks if Aladdin can create a smoke or fog through the palace with his ring, so Aladdin fills the palace with fog. The Marvels take the magic from the Pasha, who is left with only his magic mirror, with which he finds out that the Marvels have taken the other magic items. He uses an axe to smash the mirror, causing the city to crumble like the mirror. The Marvels place the people on the magic carpet. The people claim in all the past or future there will never be anybody like the Marvels. When everybody is safe Cap says they will get the Pasha, but Jr. says it is too late, as the whole city collapses, meaning the Pasha caused his own downfall and death. Aladdin uses the lamp to return the people to their own time. He then goes back to restore the damage done by the Pasha. Jr. wishes Aladdin had stayed long enough to see the wonders of their time, but Cap tells him he will be more happy back in Ancient Times where his good magic is really needed.
