40 Most Beautiful Mosques In The World

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I came across this yesterday.

The 40 most beautiful mosques in the world (their opinion of course):


The Puchong Perdana Mosque in Malaysia (or the "mosque on mirror") is quite an amazing photo, though I wouldn't say it's the most beautiful one of the list. My favorite mosque on this list is the Faisal mosque of Pakistan. Another amazing mosque in Malaysia is the Crystal Mosque. After that, 3rd place would go to the Grand Mosque in the UAE, or Sheikh Zayyed Mosque.

What would you say is your favorite?

Another mosque not on this list that is one of my favorites is located in Russia, known as the Kul Sharif:

I do not know whether architecturally people might consider this one of the most beautiful mosques, but for the sheer feeling of peace you get when praying there, I would vote for the Masjid Qiblatain in Medina for spiritual beauty:

    • if four witnesses accused of stealing, you declared innocence, were innocent, but the witnesses were your enemies, is that a fair judgement?. The judge would not know, as the witnesses looked just like you. This happens around the world daily. Your statement is incorrect, it would not be a fair judgement, it would appear to be one, similar to how western politicians use this same concept to invade nations. It is a fair judgement according to their criteria. But those on the receiving end find it abysmal. The reason why you prefer B&W situations, because your mind prefers order and thus it is too simplistic in nature to consider options as it requires critical thinking. This is general for a majority of human beings, as there are too many variables in all cases including the B&W ones. Hence, if one were to analyse religion, its majority is based around this B&W concept, as order is preferred over disordered, especially in regards to the whole, even if we have collateral damage.
    • W Salam لا یستوی اصحاب النار و اصحاب الجنة، اصحاب الجنة هم الفائزون فما ذا بعد الحق الا الضلال قد تبین الرشد من الغی For God, everything is black and white It is for us, ignorant human beings, that gray areas exist, temporarily of course. ان تتقوا الله یجعل لکم فرقانا If you maintain Taqwa, you have black and white distinction in this life; and if not, it will be on the day of judgment, the day of distinction. هذا یوم الفصل جمعناکم و الاولین  
    • Either place right over left or left over right both mean cross legged. However, in Pakistan and India while people sit on the ground, they fold their legs like in yoga people do, but this is not exactly like Yoga but more relaxed, I think, I have to ask this question from my Maraja as well. 
    • That is still permissible or impermissible -_- you just mentioned that yourself... I'm not here debating situations, I'm here discussing verdicts and final judgement.  I would still call it a fair judgement. If someone gets his fingers cut off for stealing, even if he didn't, as long as the court satisfied the regulations of the shari'a, then I would consider it a fair judgement - knowing that the judge can only work through what Allah has given him he can work with. If he hadn't given that call, then he would be wrong and probably a sinner.
