95 year old Sheikh Fathallah abo-gabr was born in Der Esna village and learned the holy Quran at age 9, and became a servant for Quran ever since. He taught a lot of Quran learners. He told his kids one day that he saw the prophet  Mohamed in his Dreams and he told him that whoever sees him would be happy. Sheikh fathalla’s story spread and his visitors came from all over the country to visit him and get blessed by him.

@wissamgaza Turkish Muslims prayers at the city's landmark Sultan Ahmed Mosque, or Blue Mosque, in Istanbul, on the second day of Ramadan. By Wissam Nassar #ramadan #istanbul #everything_imaginable #wissamgaza
The Month of Ramadan is known for its generosity, hence the Arabic word "Kareem". During this month, Muslims abstain from food/drinks and many pleasures to appreciate and think of others. There is also a greater commitment to give charity to the needy and less fortunate. The neighbors in Alrakah district have set out every Ramadan to contribute to a catering company that will daily feed a couple of hundred visitors outside the mosque. Many foreign workers and some locals sit outside in waiting for the Maghreb Athan (call to prayer during sunset) to announce the breaking of fast. I photographed this event two years ago on the first day of Ramadan, and looking forward to photographing more of this special month this year.

Khalid Nabi, a legendary cemetery over the green plains of the Thousand Valley
The shrine is located on top of the mountain, and if you look up above it, as if the heavens and the earth are tied together and the surrounding hillsides, known as a thousand hills, have transformed it into something that is not like the erath.
