Mausoleum of Okshy ata.

Highlight tour in Kazakhstan.

“And to Jebrail the angel the Prophet asked the question:
Why is this spirit here without a body, but with an appearance,
The head of the people with tears in their eyes and with a pure soul?
On that I went underground at sixty-three.
Jebrail answered: after all, the work of the faithful is Truth for you,
Ascending to heaven, he will take lessons from the angels.
Let the crying reward be seven tobaccos"
