I AM FOREVER walking upon these shores, Betwixt the sand and the foam, The high tide will erase my foot-prints, And the wind will blow away the foam. But the sea and the shore will remain Forever. بالروح بالدم نفديك ياعراق

Abu Ali, the old Bookseller on Mutanabbi Street died today on April 10th, 2014. 

Anyone who sells books for living and offers the world a window to knowledge deserves a little acknowledgement, so please recite Al-fatiha for him.

Now this court will learn
that I am the greatest in wit and courage.

I am he whose writing the blind see
and whose words grant hearing to the deaf.

Content with complete verses, I sleep,
while others strain for simple rhymes.

I laughed at the frauds and their ignorance
until, with discerning hand and mouth, I destroy them.

If you see the lion bare his teeth,
do not assume he is smiling!

— Iraqi Poet, Al-Mutanabbi

Abu Ali, a bookseller in Baghdad’s famous "Al-Mutanabbi Street"  (شارع المتنبي) passed away this week surrounded by his books. 

This street is a well established area for book selling and has often been referred to as the heart and soul of the Baghdad literacy and intellectual community. It is named after the famed Iraqi poet “Al-Mutanabbi.”
The attachment Iraqis have to the written word is stunning.

From creating the first written language, to boasting some of the greatest intellectual minds of all time.
