Strolling past this beautiful masjid, I couldn’t resist the urge to snap a few shots. The intricate details and dark wooden door was just captivating, stealing the gazes of passer’s by.
But we must remember, it is of no use spending tons of money and using expensive materials to build extravagant mosques if it will merely be admired from far!
A masjid is truly beautiful when it is occupied with believers engaged in worship; reciting the holy quraan, offering prayers or just keeping the tongues busy with the remembrance of our Lord. Only then will blessings fill the air.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah will build for him likewise in Paradise.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî and Sahîh Muslim]
