About The Mosque
Most religions have a place of worship. For Islam, it is the mosque. Not only is it a place for praying, it’s the centre of the community and where many important activities take place.
Mosques are the heart of the Islamic life. They serve for prayers, for events during Islam’s holiest month Ramadan, as centres for education and information, places for social welfare, and also for dispute settlement. The Imam is the religious leader of the mosque and the person who leads the prayers.
Mosques are as old as Islam.
there is a Mosque whose foundation was laid from the first day on piety; it is more worthy of the standing forth [for prayer] therein. In it are men who love to be purified; and Allah loves those who make themselves pure.
O you who have faith! When the call is made for prayer on Friday, hurry toward the remembrance of God, and leave all business. That is better for you, should you know. And when the prayer is finished, disperse through the land and seek God’s grace, and remember God greatly so that you may be felicitous.
