Request for input and keep up the great work![edit]

Hi Muhammad! First off, great job on the work you are doing! You have an incredible eye for detail.

Also, I wanted to ask you if youre not too busy, if you could take a quick look at the Wikipedia:Featured picture candidates/Monroe Street Bridge Featured pic candidate and give your two cents. It got 4 supports and 1 oppose on the first day as a FPC, but hasnt gotten input since. I think it has been buried by the flurry of other FPCs coming in lol. I think this picture has high EV and I have found no comparable bridge pictures of any quality on this site that depict what is in this photograph, so I think it is important to the project and will be worth your time.

Anyway, thank you for all you do!G755648 (talk) 02:09, 30 September 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Wikipedia_Signpost/2014-10-15/Featured_content[edit]

Hey, Muhammad. I hate to be a pain about this, but I was trying to get a good writeup for your excellent photo, went to Fatima Masumeh Shrine, read the opening, and...

I just don't know enough about Islam. I mean, I can mostly understand the opening paragraph, but I don't know, for example, who the Twelver are, or other key information for interpreting it. Would you be willing to give me two to four sentences on the shrine that I can use in the Signpost article? Adam Cuerden (talk) 02:23, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Hey, I have taken the introduction from the article and removed some of the filler and added a little to it. --Muhammad(talk) 19:33, 12 October 2014 (UTC)
The shrine of Fatima Masuma is located in Qom which is considered by Shia Muslims to be the second most sacred city in Iran after Mashhad. Fatima Masuma was the sister of the eighth Imam 'Ali al-Rida and the daughter of the seventh Imam Musa al-Kadhim. Among the shias, she is honored as a saint, and her shrine in Qom is considered one of the most significant shrines in Iran. The dome shown in the picture lies immediately above her burial chamber which also includes her 3 nieces
Thank you so much! =) Adam Cuerden (talk) 20:37, 12 October 2014 (UTC)

Spiders[edit]

Since you seem to have no problems identifying spiders, I was wondering if you could help me out with these two. Both were taken at the Sambisari Temple Complex, Indonesia: A jumping spider, and a white-haired spider. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 02:41, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Oh, okay, I'm exaggerating with the second one. But the first one makes me shudder. SPIDERS SHOULDN'T BE SPIKY! Adam Cuerden (talk) 10:16, 15 October 2014 (UTC)
  • Muhammad's spider is spiky too. Face-wink.svg. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 12:47, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

It's not me identifying them, I usually put them up on forums where there are experts to help out. The first one is A lynx spider - Oxyopidae, probably Oxyopes --Muhammad(talk) 12:30, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

I'm tempted to say Oxyopes quadrifasciatus, but I'm not sure if there's anything similar-looking to that that might get confused for it. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:24, 15 October 2014 (UTC)

Idea: Additional language descriptions of File:Takbir of prayer.jpg[edit]

Are you interested in adding other language versions of the image description to File:Takbir of prayer.jpg? I see English and Arabic. If you know Kannada, Hindi-Urdu, or other South Asian languages having descriptions in them would be very beneficial too.

Thanks! WhisperToMe (talk) 17:35, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

Would like to use photo in a Google Map of Farming.[edit]

Hi Muhammad,

I am PragmaticStatistic, and I have a free educational web site, MyReadingMapped.blogspot.com, that contains over 150 Google Maps of historic and scienific events, many of which are listed on Wikipedia as external links; for example my Google Map of the Topography of Plate Tectonics that appears at the bottom of the Wikipedia Plate Tectonics page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plate_tectonics. I am currently working on a Google Map of Farming or Agriculture and would like to use your photo of the Masaai herdsman grazing his cattle inside the Ngorongoro crater https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Masaai_with_cattle.jpg as an example of farming in far off and extreme places. If you happen to have a variation of the photo that is not so horizontal would make it bigger in Google Map. You can see my progress so far on this map at https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zlY48eTMIq2I.kqPznatwTwTo. What this map map will do is put a location to photos that are examples of various types of farming around the world. If would be similar to my Google Map of Geology http://myreadingmapped.blogspot.com/2014/07/google-map-of-geology.html.

In order to determine the location within the crater I found a Panoramio cattle photo in the Ngorongoro crater at coordinates 3° 11' 30.35" S 35° 30' 12.68" E at http://www.panoramio.com/photo/73326897. Is that coordinate close enough to the location of your photo? You can reach me via my contact page on my web site.

If you have any other such photos I would love to use them as well.

Sincerely, Pragmaticstatistic (talk) 17:55, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

Just stopped by to say incredible photo today. I saw it was in Dar es Salaam and I knew you had to have taken it before I even saw the credit. How moving. Never even knew that happened. You've informed an ignorant American. As always, keep up the good work my friend. upstateNYer 01:02, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

It was indeed a very sad sight to see and my purpose in taking and uploading the photos was to let people know about the terrible incident. Thanks for letting me know my photos did that. Muhammad(talk) 06:30, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
