Posters of the most beautiful mosques in the world
The word mosque comes from the Arabic word "masjid" which means place of prostration. Mosques are places of prayer for Muslims but they can also serve other functions. Thus, mosques can also be places of training, charity, university, school for children, etc. The first mosque in the world is the Kaaba in Mecca also called "al-Masjid al-haram". It is around the Kaaba that Muslims make seven rounds during the hajj or umra pilgrimage. Muslims all over the world face the Kaaba to perform the daily prayers of the believer (the qibla). Find many posters in our Mosque Posters category representing photographs of the Kaaba and other holy places of Islam.
Oriental architecture wall decoration
Most mosques in the world have interior or exterior architectural features that characterize mosques. The minbar is a stepped pulpit on which the imam stands when delivering a sermon after the Friday prayer. The qibla wall is the wall of a mosque that faces the Kaaba in Mecca (the qibla is the direction Muslims face when they pray).
The minaret is a tall tower that constitutes the mosque. This tower is designed so that the call to prayer (made five times a day) can be heard throughout a city. Most mosque courtyards contain a public fountain, where believers can perform ablutions (the ritual washing required before prayer).
