DOME OF THE ROCK (NOT AL-AQSA!)
Right on bro. I distinguisehd between Al-Aqsa and Dome of the Rock (which is in my second post).Originally Posted by Khaldun
the ppl that go around these masajids....they look like tourists to me....hmmm
It looks like that in the picture of the Bahrain mosque and Ankara Mosque.
If these Masajid have becomes sight seeing locations, that is shameful.
Im sure there is a prophecy of the Messenger (SWH) where he said in the end of times people will compete in building and designing masjids, and they wont even be used looking at a few of them they look deserted eventhough the look very nice
Two prophecies there.Originally Posted by Amir
Volume 9, Book 88, Number 237:
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established (1) till two big groups fight each other whereupon there will be a great number of casualties on both sides and they will be following one and the same religious doctrine, (2) till about thirty Dajjals (liars) appear, and each one of them will claim that he is Allah's Apostle, (3) till the religious knowledge is taken away (by the death of Religious scholars) (4) earthquakes will increase in number (5) time will pass quickly, (6) afflictions will appear, (7) Al-Harj, (i.e., killing) will increase, (8) till wealth will be in abundance ---- so abundant that a wealthy person will worry lest nobody should accept his Zakat, and whenever he will present it to someone, that person (to whom it will be offered) will say, 'I am not in need of it, (9) till the people compete with one another in constructing high buildings, (10) till a man when passing by a grave of someone will say, 'Would that I were in his place (11) and till the sun rises from the West. So when the sun will rise and the people will see it (rising from the West) they will all believe (embrace Islam) but that will be the time when: (As Allah said,) 'No good will it do to a soul to believe then, if it believed not before, nor earned good (by deeds of righteousness) through its Faith.' (6.158) And the Hour will be established while two men spreading a garment in front of them but they will not be able to sell it, nor fold it up; and the Hour will be established when a man has milked his she-camel and has taken away the milk but he will not be able to drink it; and the Hour will be established before a man repairing a tank (for his livestock) is able to water (his animals) in it; and the Hour will be established when a person has raised a morsel (of food) to his mouth but will not be able to eat it."
2. It was narrated on the authority of Abu Al-Darda’ who said: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said: If you decorate your mosques and copies of the Glorious Qur’an, the (vehement) wind will overwhelm you all.
True. They do seem deserted.and they wont even be used looking at a few of them they look deserted eventhough the look very nice
Voted Masjid Al Haram.. It really puts you in awe and you're more sincere. The desingn is really wonderful. Same with Masjid Al Nabawi.
I kinda think some of the masjids in other places look more like a tourist attraction..they're quiet..and when its full, people tend to talk more than do dhikr. I know where I am, all of a sudden people started building several masajid. Thats great, but they did for show..because they themselves hardly ever go to the masjid!
Ya Allah guide the Muslims to become righteous..
I go to York every year, and always visit York Minster............
Thanks for posting the picture root. Very nice.
root do you go for religious perpose? or just to look at the building?
I don't go for religous reasons. I go so my kids can appreciate the History of the of England and to pay my respects to the fallen men of the British Armed Forces. I also like the Choir who's voices boom throughout it's large space and stone interior, quite humbling.Originally Posted by Khaldun
Their are two occasions when I feel quite touched. One is a visit to York Minster, the other is standing on the Shore of the Arabian Sea in Karachi. The strong warm air is like nothing you can experience in the UK.
I thought id take this chance to post a picture of a masjid very close to my heart.
SubhanAllah all the masaajid are beautiful .. but nearly all of them look really modernised and more of a tourist place like sum members have mentioned it above ..but the Real BEAUTY and BARAKAH lies in KAABA, Al AQSA , and NABAWI
:applaud: Alhamdulillah. They're all very nice, but I would say that picture may not be enough, as I have heard from people who have been Hajj. It's the feeling they say they have, which is not something you can describe in words. If any of you have been, please do share it with us . . .
PS: What is rep power all about? :confused:
