I really enjoyed my time in Bodrum! And maybe also a day in Kusadasi would interest you? We always had a fantastic time in Kusadasi, shopping, eating, and more shopping!! Plenty of great deals on carpets, leather, linens...due to all my fantastic buys, I had to ship a 20-kilo box home to Canada from Barcelona....oops!!! But it was great!! Turkey is a fabulous country, and I am so jealous! I would love to go back!
hi tjk i can tell you that there are so many places to see at eagen side i mean natural places like fethiye famous with oludeniz you can search it at net to see the beach also dalyan famous with caretta caretta turtles and nice beaches. also datca is nice too. In Turkey i can tell you that you should bargain for shopping. and sometimes people can be very annoying when they want to sell you something. I can give you information about nightlife at istanbul if you would like.
This happens so often, forum entries of a year ago or much more, and then a first time poster adds something to promote his or hear country. Just delete this please.
you mention so many sources while I could only provide dalil aqli can't match yours .. ::hail::
but will ask my ustadz for its asbabul wurudl. Usually we will have better understanding to the context.
Here is also quoted from your favourite page
And whatever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatever he forbids you, leave it. And fear Allah: truly Allah is severe in punishment.
Hmmmm .. I think the context of above is for Fa'i share (what is the translation for Fa'i?). Asbabun nuzul is because of some Anshar did not satisfy with their Fa'i allotment, grumbling behind Rasulullah, which was giving more share to Muhajirin. But off course, Rasul never-ever mean it to disgrace Anshar. It's just because that time Muhajirin is really need the Fa'i (money?) after their hijrah. You should know already that some Muhajirin was once very rich people in Makkah, but he must leave everything ...
So, IMO above Qur'an statement can not be used for claiming we must follow Rasul literally. Even if it is hadits shahih as above
Back again to Travel
The website is not so helpful. There is no time-table and price info. But I have sent them email. Wish their response is at speed-light
And there is strange route for SAPTCO.
There is "Tabuk - Jeddah" bus via Duba (this is not through Madinah). But when I reverse with "Jeddah - Tabuk", the route is not available. Do you think the route is like circling? impossible ..
So, here is my itenerary update .. Not yet complete, whether directly to Jerusalem/Jordan or try Turkey ...
