Kazmain

 

A masonry structure on the eastern side of 'Qadam Shareef' is the latest addition to the enclosure of Dargah Shah-e-Mardan. It was built by Ghulam Asghar Soomar in 1988 A.D. (1408 A.H.).  It is a small 23' 5" by 11' rectangular room with two domes, and one small minaret. It is built in honor of ‘Kazmain', Shrine situated in Baghdad, Iraq. 'Kazmain' is the resting place of seventh Imam Musa Kazim (as) and the ninth Imam Muhammad Taqi (as). A replica of ‘Kazmain' has been placed inside.

Alams of Hazrat Abbas (as), the son of Imam Ali ibn Abu Talib (as) are adorned on walls. Initially it had two doorways on each corner, but for unknown reasons, those doors were closed permanently by masonry work and a single door is opened in the centre of the structure. The domes were covered with small ceramic tiles and a small minaret is also added later to the structure.

William Montgomery Watt on Prophet Muhammad

(1909- ) Professor (Emeritus) of Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Edinburgh.

q       "His readiness to undergo  persecutions  for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the  greatness  of  his  ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity.  To suppose Muhammad an  impostor  raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none  of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad."

[Mohammad At Mecca, Oxford, 1953, p. 52]
