    The Imilchil Marriage Festival takes place at Imilchil, which is located high up in the lake plateau of the Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco. The legendary tale of the Imilchil Marriage Festival says there were two young people who fell in love from enemy tribes. Their family would not allow them to marry. Out of grief, they wept bitterly day and night. These tears created two individual lakes. One lake was "Isli", meaning bridegroom and the other, "Tislit", meaning bride. (Photo: AP)[​IMG]

Today, the event is arranged to coincide with a large three-day market that marks the end of the harvest season. (Photo: AP)

Traditionally, a nod and a wink is the unspoken language between men and women at the festival to show interest. Men are usually assisted by a friend in choosing a bride and overcoming any shyness. Once they receive a gesture from a female, if they agree, they may hold hands to show intent. However, letting go of ones hand signals rejection. (Photo: AP)

According to customs, if a bride says the magic phrase, "you have captured my liver or my liver pines for you", it means that she has found her love. Liver not the heart is considered the location of true love because in Berber culture it is believed that a healthy liver aids digestion and promotes well-being. (Photo: AP)

    Jebel Jais mountain in Ras Al Khaima, UAE. The attraction aims to make Ras Al Khaimah a destination for adventure travel in the Middle East.

    Set to open in the United Arab Emirates’ northernmost emirate Ras Al Khaimah, the zip line will propel riders off the UAE’s highest mountain peak, Jebel Jais, which stands nearly 2,000 m (6,561 feet) above sea level.

    Mohamed Ajar, a prominent resistance leader during France’s decades-long occupation of Morocco, died Wednesday in Casablanca at the age of 97, according to sources close to him.

    Affectionately known as “Said Bonaeilat”, Ajar had been receiving treatment at a Casablanca hospital for more than a month when he passed away.

    Ajar was born in 1920 in the town of Tafraout in Morocco’s southern Sous region.

    While in Casablanca, he joined the local resistance against the French occupation, at which point he first began using his well-known nom du guerre, Said Bonaeilat.

    In 1944, Ajar joined the Istiqlal Party -- Morocco’s first political party -- before helping to establish the National Union of Popular Forces (NUPF), which broke away from the Istiqlal Party in the mid-1950s.

    In 1956, after 44 years of French occupation, Morocco regained its political independence.

    The reproduction of a rare Koran manuscript was a particular highlight. On display at the University of Birmingham stand, it is a copy of the original, carbon-dated to between A.D. 468-645.

    Sharjah is staking claim in as many words to being the ‘Islamic cultural capital’ and the ‘cultural capital of the Arab world’, priding in its “ever-increasing international status as a source of knowledge, positivity and ambition”, as Ahmed Al-Ameri, Chairman of the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA) said. The city has been named Unesco’s World Book Capital 2019.

    RIYADH: Archaeologists have announced a number of discoveries and phenomena in various parts of the Kingdom on the sidelines of the first Saudi Antiquities Forum which ended on Thursday.

    One of these is a 1,000-year-old gold dinar struck in 453 AH, and uncovered by an archaeologist at King Saud University, local media reported.

    The gold dinar, an Islamic medieval gold coin, was found only 20 centimeters below the surface at the archaeological site.

    A new astronomical phenomenon linked to the Rajajil site was also found, in addition to six other Fatimid coins, glass bottles with writings dating back to the reign of the Caliph Al-Mustansir, part of a red agate pottery, and decorative beads.

    Rajajil, often called the Stonehenge of Saudi Arabia, is a mysterious ancient site located on a sandstone terrace some 20 kilometers south of the center of Sakakah, the capital of Al-Jouf province, and a few kilometers south of Qarah village.


    Archaeological excavations had revealed that Rajajil is indeed a burial site, but its true importance is “probably its role in the transition of lifestyles from nomadism toward sedentarism induced by climate changes on the Arabian Peninsula.

    Archaeological investigation in the Al-Hajjar area also revealed the existence of 17 tombs with the names of 14 sculptors who worked in Madain Saleh, the first world heritage site of Saudi Arabia. The archaeological tombs in the area bore artistic inscriptions.

    Wall inscriptions suggest the tombs date to the 18th dynasty, pharaohs who ruled some 3,500 years ago

    Egypt on Saturday announced the discovery of two small ancient tombs in the southern city Luxor dating back some 3,500 years and hoped it will help the country’s efforts to revive its ailing tourism sector.

    The tombs, located on the west bank of the river Nile in a cemetery for noblemen and top officials, are the latest discovery in the city famed for its temples and tombs spanning different dynasties of ancient Egyptian history.

    “It’s truly an exceptional day,” Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani said. “The 18th dynasty private tombs were already known. But it’s the first time to enter inside the two tombs.”

    Al-Anani said the discoveries are part of the ministry’s efforts to promote Egypt’s vital tourism industry, partially driven by antiquities sightseeing, that was hit hard by extremist attacks and political turmoil following the 2011 uprising.

(AFP)

    The ministry said one tomb has a courtyard lined with mud-brick and stone walls and contains a six-meter (yard) burial shaft leading to four side chambers. The artifacts found inside were mostly fragments of wooden coffins. Wall inscriptions and paintings suggest it belongs to era between the reigns King Amenhotep II and King Thutmose IV, both pharaohs of the 18th dynasty.

    The other tomb has five entrances leading to a rectangular hall and contains two burial shafts located in the northern and southern sides of the tomb.

    Among the artifacts found inside are funerary cones, painted wooden funerary masks, clay vessels, a collection of some 450 statues and a mummy wrapped in linen who was likely of a top official. A cartouche carved on the ceiling bears the name of King Thutmose I of the early 18th dynasty.

    The Antiquities Ministry has made a string of discoveries since the beginning of 2017 in several provinces across Egypt — including the tomb of a royal goldsmith in the same area and belonging to the same dynasty, whose work was dedicated to the ancient Egyptian god Amun.

    JEDDAH: The King Fahd National Library has contributed to the restoration and photocopying of more than 12,000 manuscripts and tens of thousands of documents and materials dating back more than 900 years, then sterilizing them with ozone gas.

    The move aims to preserve and restore the items from the damage they have suffered over time.
    The restoration department “deals with the documents and manuscripts it receives from government agencies and individuals,” said its director, Abdullah Al-Ahmad.

    “Each item goes through a complex process of six stages, beginning with sterilization, treatment, restoration, microfilm and digital photography, until the binding stage.”

    MADINAH: The Qur’an exhibition held in Madinah, in cooperation with Samaya Holding, aims to introduce the content of the Qur’an accurately according to a system of techniques which follows a museum exhibition style.

    The exhibition involves the participation of the King Fahd Complex for the Printing of the Holy Qur’an, the General Presidency for the affairs of the Grand Mosque and the Prophet’s Mosque, King Abdul Aziz Foundation for Research and Archives, King Abdul Aziz General Library in Madinah, King Saud University, and King Abdul Aziz University.

    The sub-goals include the call for learning and teaching Qur’an; highlighting the greatness of the Qur’an; understanding the history of Qur’an, displaying the special technologies of the Qur’an; and demonstrating the efforts of the Kingdom in caring for the Qur’an.

    Hamzah Abdul-Karim, the supervisor of the exhibition, told Arab News that the Qur’an exhibition contains many manuscripts and modern technologies which suit the needs of society, including manuscripts written on gazelle’s skin and others written by Hafez Osman, who wrote 106 manuscripts of the Qur’an and passed away while writing the 107th.

    Another unique manuscript was written by Ghulam Mohiuddin about 200 years ago, which was carried on four camels from Afghanistan to Madinah due to its heavy weight. The manuscript is one-and-a-half meters long and one meter wide, and weighs 154 kilograms. There is a translation in Persian at the bottom of each page.

    Abdul-Karim added that the exhibition is held in 12 halls, and there are interpreters to many languages including English, French, Persian, Turkish, Urdu, Indonesian, Pashtu and Malawian. He also noted that a large number of pilgrims visit the exhibition during Umrah and Hajj seasons, with the number of visitors reaching 10.000 daily during Hajj season. Moreover, people from around 150 nations visited the exhibition.

    Visitors to the Qur’an exhibition in Madinah have been amazed at the talents of the Egyptian Qur’an calligrapher Hani Al-Tawil who displays his skills to visitors. Tawil told Arab News that he masters the Naskh and Diwani styles of the Arabic alphabet, as well as six other types of calligraphy.

    I thought UAE's fighter jets are already busy with bombing the shit out of Libyan infrastructures.

    N.Africa could be heaven. Believe me, Arab monarchs are still killing poorest Arab people by supplying ISIS and Nusra-Qaeda, as much as N.Africa stays away from the shitholes in middle east, it would be even safer. No need to tell you about Yemen, destroyed by Arab monarchs, just to remind. No offense
