A devout Moslem before a wonder-working inscription
This inscription is in the Arabic language as well as Arabic script. It proclaims the greatness and unity of God, whose prophet Mohammed was. Most visitors in standing before the inscription rub it with the palms of their hands and then rub their faces. One can see how high the polishing palms usually reach. Behind this grill is the tomb of Eyoub Ensari, standard-bearer and friend of Mohammed the Conqueror.
