Greetings Talal, I hope you are well. I regret that Alexander was running around different cities in the Kingdom and did not stay still long enough to meet with you, as he would have much enjoyed it. We are considering opening an office in Riyadh.
I hope you and your loved ones are enjoying this special time together. Eid Mubarak!
Thank you for your comment on the medieval Islamic architecture blog entry - of course, this is a vast and vital subject so one can only touch upon one point at a time, and I think you should be the one to make the next point!
Dear Talal, thank you for your kind response, and you are right - more research and standard guidelines for ease of Shari'a compliance would be very welcome (I too have noticed that often, even though there are prayer rooms, the need for ablution amenities is not met in public places, such as malls and schools.)
I appreciate you bringing up some of the important issues related to Islamic architecture!
Hi Talal, thanks for joining the network. Your vast experience and interest could be a great plus to the network and the mission to share knowledge. We are looking forward to see your work and commentaries.
