Just before his death on the gallows in England, Captain Kidd said, "After my death, you may find treasure I have buried in a place where two tides meet." There are descendants of old pirates today living in Nova Scotia who point to the Bay of Fundy and say, "This is where the two tides meet, and where Captain Kidd hid his treasure. Annapolis Royal, formerly Port Royal, was the first settlement on the North American continent. Fort Anne has seen many a battle between the French, English and Indians. Treasures of antiquity abound in this area. There is a tradition that a year after Captain Kidd had been taken to England on charges of piracy and hanged in 1701, some of his old pirate crew appeared off old Port Royal - modern-day Annapolis - searching for treasure they swore he had buried in that region on an island in the wide Bay of Fundy. Despite their exhaustive search, they did not find it. Legends say that Captain Kidd buried gold contained in wooden trunks, leather bags, kegs and canvas sacks on an island which lies 4 miles off the shores of County Yarmouth in the southeastern end of the Bay of Fundy. The spot is marked by a cleft rock in which is driven sticks of lignum vitae, a very hard and heavy wood similar to ebony or teak.. Star Island, off the southern shores of Nova Scotia, is known to have been frequented by American pirates and privateers in the late 17th and 18th centuries.
The shahada (Arabic: الشهادة aš-šahādah audio (help·info)) (from the verb شهد šahida, "he witnessed"), means "to know and believe without suspicion, as if witnessed, testification"; it is the name of the Islamic creed. The shahada is the Muslim declaration of belief in the oneness of God (tawhid) and acceptance of Muhammad as God's prophet. The declaration in its shortest form reads: لَا إِلَّهَ إِلَّا الله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله (lā ʾilāha ʾillā l-Lāh, Muḥammadun rasūlu l-Lāh) (in Arabic) There is no god but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God. (in English)
I studied the picture a bit closer and I can see that it says La Ilaha Ila Allah around the pendant and Allah in the middle, Allahu Akbar at the top and Muhammad at the bottom. So it would be La Ilaha Ila Allah Muhammad Rasolo Allah, Meaning there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.
So Allah in the middle, Allahu Akbar at the top and Right Side with Bottom and Left side says the Shahada, Meaning the testimony of faith in Islam. La Ilaha Ila Allah Muhammad Rasolo Allah.
But I can't read the other side of the pendant. It's not clear enough to be read by an amateure like me.edit on 4-3-2013 by Misbah because: (no reason given)
