dastaanewatan:

Children in Lahore looking at a slideshow of images through a bioscope. These bioscopes were popular on the streets of Pakistan,with the operator manually winding the bioscope through a series of images while observers watched through a peephole. The images were often of famous monuments, landscapes and film stars.

يَأْتِي عَلَى النَّاسِ زَمَانٌ لاَ يَبْقى مِنَ الْقُرآنِ إِلاَّ رَسْمُهُ، وَمِنَ الْإِسْلاَمِ إِلاَّ اسْمُهُ، مَسَاجِدُهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ عَامِرَةٌ مِنَ البنَاء، خَالية مِنَ الْهُدَى

A time will come upon people in which the only remaining thing from Quran is its writing, and the only remaining thing from Islam is its name. Their mosques are well established but are empty of spirituality

Imam Ali (as)
