BE'AR ALALSHHAB.......& THE LION OF THE DESERT
YEAH....IT'S THE FIRST TIME FOR ME TOOTO KNOW THAT OMAR ALMOKHTAR THE LION OF THE DESERT IS BORN THERE.......AS WE ALL KNOW TOMORROW OMAR ALMOKHTAR WAS HANGED 77 YEARS AGO...HERE ARE SOME OF THE INFORMATION THAT YOU SHOULD ALL KNOW...HE'S FROM TRIPE MNAFY WHICH BELONGS TO HASHEM BEN MANAF .FROM QURAISH/MEKAH
HE WAS BORN IN 1858 IN BEA'R ALASHHAB IN EASTERN LIBYA NEAR TUBROQ..HIS FATHER DIED AS HE WAS COMING FROM HAJJ WITH HIS MOTHER.......HE LEARENED QURAN BY HEART & WENT TO JAGBOUB AS HE CONTINUED & WORKED THERE
He was the leader of the resistance movement against the Italian military occupation of Libya for more than twenty years. In 1912, following the Italian capture of Libya from the occupying Turks the previous year, Omar Mukhtar organized and devised strategies for the Libyan resistance against the Italian colonization.
Mukhtar’s nearly twenty year struggle came to an end when he became wounded in battle and was subsequently captured by the Italian army. The Libyan hero was treated like a prize catch by the Italians. However, his resilience had an impact on his jailers, who later said they were overwhelmed by his steadfastness. His interrogators later confessed that Mukhtar looked them in the eye and read verses of peace from the Qur'an as he was tortured and interrogated.
Mukhtar was tried, convicted, and sentenced to be executed by hanging in a public place. The fairness of his trial has been disputed by historians and scholars When asked if he wished to say any last words, he replied with the Qur'anic clause: "From Allah we have come, and to Allah we will return." On September 16, 1931, in the hope that the Libyan resistance movement would wither and die without him, Mukhtar died by hanging in front of his followers in the concentration camp of Solluqon on the orders of the Italian court
