The issue of Hagia Sophia’s turning into mosque should be inspected objectively rather than creating bias decision based on its history, politics, ego, emotions surrounding the building. In order to do that first we must see the real and define what a mosque is for Muslims as it is ordained. We must keep our head straight to know what real benefit it carries today in the progress of Muslims and the society, other than rituals prayers, traweeh, itikaf, like so many mosques already fulfilling it Muslim countries. Until we get concrete agreed answer to that, our mind only wander in its history, ego, politics Christian vs Muslims or the sales receipt when it was sold to Muslim ruler in the past.
