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

Masjid Rowda, Bosaso


Masjid Al-Imaarat


Mosque of Islamic Solidarity (Mogadishu, 1987)
The Mosque of Islamic Solidarity is the single largest masjid in the Horn of Africa. It is capable of accommodating up to 10,000 worshippers. The masjid also overlooks the Indian Ocean.


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.
