FAISAL the great

HRH Faisal ibn Abdul Aziz Al Saud, King of Saudi Arabia (1904 – March 25, 1975) (Arabic: فيصل بن عبدالعزيز آل سعود‎) ruled from 1964 to 1975.

Faisal was born in Riyadh, the third son of Saudi Arabia's founder, Ibn Saud. Faisal's mother was Tarfa bint Abduallah bin Abdulateef al Sheekh, whom Ibn Saud had married in 1902 after capturing Riyadh. She was a descendent of Muhammad ibn Abd Al-Wahhab, and her father was one of Ibn Saud's principal religious teachers and advisers.

On March 25, 1975, Faisal was shot point-blank and killed by his half-brother's son, Faisal bin Musa'id, who had just come back from the United States. The murder occurred at a majlis, (Arabic for "a place for sitting") an event where the king or leader opens up his residence to the citizens to enter and petition the king. The stated reason was revenge for Faisal bin Musa'id's brother Khaled, who had been killed by Saudi Defense Force members while taking part in a demonstration in 1965.

The man was definitely one of the greatest Kings Saudi Arabia has ever had. He's well respected all over. It's a shame he died in such an awful way.
*May he rest in peace*

Without a doubt he is the greatest king in the 3rd Saudi State, he is the last Muslim leader to push for a Pan-Islamic Policy/Identity.

Here some pictures

On a side note my friend, whenever you want to add something to your thread you edit your first post and add it there instead of posting a new replay, this is the same method that another member by the name of Muqeem use, so are you Muqeem?

GRATEFUL DEAD - Blues for Allah
eulogy for Saudi Arabia's King Faisal

"Blues For Allah"
Words by Robert Hunter; music by Jerry Garcia
Copyright Ice Nine Publishing; used by permission.
Arabian wind
The Needle's Eye is thin
The Ships of State sail on mirage
but drown in sand
in No-Man's Land
where ALLAH does command
What good is spilling
blood? It will not
grow a thing
the sword sings Blues for ALLAH
They lie where they fall
There's nothing more to say
The desert stars are bright tonight,
let's meet as friends
The flower of Islam
The fruit of Abraham
The thousand stories have
come round to one again
Arabian Night
our gods pursue their fight
What fatal flowers of
darkness spring from
seeds of light
Bird of Paradise - Fly
In white sky
Blues for ALLAH
Let's see with our heart
these things our eyes have seen
and know the truth will still lie
somewhere in between
Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity
Bird of Paradise
In white sky
Under eternity

وشاح (ليولند) وهو وشاح بلجيكي يمنح لمن يقمون بخدمات ممتازة ومنقوش عليه الإتحاد قوة قدم للملك فيصل من ملك بلجيكا

وسام مايكل جورج البريطاني قدم للملك فيصل

بعض الأدوات التي التي استخدمها الملك فيصل عندما بدأ أعمال الترميم للكعبة المشرفة

دلة الملك فيصل الذي كان ذواقاً للقهوة العربية الاصيلة. وكان من عادته حينما يخرج الى البر يبهر القهوة بنفسه للجميع

الراديو. وقد كان بمثابة التلفاز في يومنا هذا وكان الملك فيصل يحرص على الاستماع إلى إذاعات الشرق والغرب عندما يعود إلى داره

مصحف الملك فيصل الذي كان يقرأ فيه كل ليلة. ويظهر كما تركه مفتوحاً على اخر اَية قرأها (وجاهدوا في الله حق جهاده هو اجتباكم وماجعل عليكم في الدين من حرج ملة أبيكم إبراهيم هو سماكم المسلمين من قبل وفي هذا ليكون الرسول شهيدا عليكم وتكونوا شهداء على الناس فأقيموا الصلاة وءاتوا الزكاة واعتصموا بالله هو مولاكم فنعم المولى ونعم النصير) واو قدر له أن يكمل لكان قرأ بسمالله الرحمن الرحيم (قد أفلح المؤمنون)

ساعة الملك قيصل. وكان معروفاً عنه انضباط مواعيده بدرجة فائقة. حتى يقال أنه يمكن أن تضبط الساعات على توقيته لأنه كان يعتبر ان وقته ليس ملكاً له
