Uqba

by Micha F. Lindemans
"End". The name of a Muslim fighter who reached the end of the known world (which was the Atlantic coast of Morocco). He attempted to cross it and drove his horse into the water, but the animal refused to go any further. Uqba prayed: "Allah, if it were not for thy ocean, I would conquer the whole earth."
