Mosque Destroyed by ISIS - 10000 Dinar Note

By CoinWeek News Staff …..
 

On June 21, 2017, retreating ISIS fighters detonated a series of explosive charges that destroyed the Great Mosque of al-Nuri in the heart of Mosul overlooking the Tigris River. The 12th-century structure was built by Nur ad-Din Zangi, a Turkish noble, in the closing decades of the great Seljuk Empire.

With a tilt reminiscent of another famous tower, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Great Mosque of al-Nuri has long been a cherished landmark in the northern Iraqi city.

The current-iteration of the Iraq 10,000-dinar banknote featuring the Great Mosque of al-Nuri debuted in 2013, and featured the signature of Dr. Abdul Basit Turki Saeed, Governor of the Central Bank of Iraq. The mosque is illustrated on the back of the note. On the note’s front is a depiction of Jawad Saleem’s Monument of Freedom (Nasb al-Hurriyah), located in Baghdad.

The site’s history took a darker turn in July 4, 2014, when Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, shortly after seizing the city of Mosul, gave a sermon from the mosque declaring the founding of an Islamist caliphate with himself as caliph. The call was largely rejected by most muslims and muslim leaders, but did elevate the stakes in the War on Terror.

ISIS’ demolition of the Great Mosque of al-Nuri is just the latest in a series of destructive acts against cultural property and historic religious sites. In Mosul in 2014 alone, the group destroyed the Prophet Jonah Mosque, the shrine of Fathe al-Ka’en, the shrine of Imam Awn al-Din, and the Al-Qubba Husseiniya Mosque.
