    UAE mosque has 82 domes and I really like the mosaic floor outdoors and the indoors is incredible.

    Mosque in a semi-trailer truck? Japan is getting ready for the Summer Olympics in 2020



    16.08.2018

    Preparations for the Summer Olympics taking place in Tokyo in four years have started in full swing. One of the Japanese companies decided to take care of the spiritual side of the games. The idea is to slightly modify a 25-tonne truck so that it could serve as a … mobile mosque.

    This is definitely my favourite one. I didn't even know it existed until today. I just went from having zero interest in visiting that evil country to planning on going one day.

    My second favourite is the Pakistani one. It's simply incredible.

    I love how different cultures put their own spin on the classic masjid to produce such majesties.

    Even developing countries like Pakistan and Nigeria have at least one incredible masjid. While what we have in Somalia isn't bad, it hasn't reached that level of greatness just yet.

    Mosque of Islamic Solidarity (Mogadishu, 1987)

    I hope we don't waste money on recreating Ottoman masjids like so many other countries have done. We have more than enough of our own Islamic history to build something that is our own.

    Important point

    Architecture is a reflection of your society and shows the characteristics of the designer and culture. Plus it captures the history of the time period.
