Beautiful masjids around the world

London Central Mosque (Regents Park Mosque), Marylebone, London, UK [1977]

The land was donated by George VI to the Muslim community of Britain in return for the donation of land in Cairo by King Farouk of Egypt and Sudan on which to build an Anglican cathedral

£2 Million of funding was donated for the construction of the ICC by His Majesty King Faisal Bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia. Further donation was provided by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan ruler of Abu Dhabi and President of the United Arab Emirates.

I love fine architecture and the architectures of these masjids are absolutely breathtaking and fabulous. How come no one posted King Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco?

Let’s keep this thread sticky for a while and enjoy the architecture of these mosques.

Man I love Istanbul. I prayed in the blue Mosque


Grand Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, performed Taraweeh prayers there


Masjid Sultan In Singapore. Prayed there Jumacah prayers. They have screens inside that translate the Khutbah of the Imam from Malay to English. Very modern



Inshallah I will pray in Al-Aqsa mosque. I was very close to go to Jerusalem in 2014 but hooyo said no. Few weeks later war broke out between the Israelis and Hamas

Please moderators, don’t unstick it again without informing me. I don’t care about religion, but let’s enjoy the majestic architecture of these buildings.

This looks amazing! Well done fellow science fiction fan Muslims.

The German futuristic mosque was fantastic. I wonder if environmental considerations are applied to those mosques in the diaspora such as solar panels and etc.

I wouldn’t be surprised. It looks like they didn’t skimp on materials, but who knows. Solar panels are much less expensive nowadays and it’ll only get better.

Too bad they haven't renovated it. That's how Europeans keep all of their old buildings in pristine condition. We could use some renovations in our old masjids as well.

Turkey was renovating an old and important masjid in Ethiopia.
https://www.dailysabah.com/religion...d-agency-renovating-historic-ethiopian-mosque
The Nejashi Mosque is one of the world's earliest mosques, built in the seventh century by the companions of the Prophet Mohammad who were exiled from Arabia by the Quraysh tribe and came to Ethiopia where they found a welcome refuge. Located in the town of Wukro in northern Ethiopia's Tigray state some 800 kilometers from Addis Ababa, the Islamic monument is now undergoing major renovations thanks to the Turkish Cooperation and Coordination Agency (TİKA).
The site also hosts the tombs of the 15 companions of the prophet who introduced Islam to Ethiopia. Landmarks, therefore, will be erected outside each mausoleum, Durhat said, explaining each of the companions' history.
I heard they wrecked it though and rebuilt it with Turkish architecture.
