India's first Masjid is believed to be built in 628 AD at the behest of legendary ruler Cheraman Perumal, who died in Arabia after embracing Islam.

I heard that he this Hindu King(who later reverted to Islam) saw the splitting of Moon... and then was eager to know about it.. so travelled to the middle east.



Cheraman Juma Masjid

Legend has it that before he died, Cheraman Perumal sent an emissary to Kodungalloor to seek the help of his descendant there to propagate Islam along the Kerala coast.


The original Hindu architectural scheme of the mosque has been retained intact to a great extent, though essential additions have been made over the years.


Situated at the northern end of the Periyar River, about 50 km from Kochi, Kodungaloor has been the gateway for Christianity, Judaism and Islam in India.

One of the larget mosque in the world....

The Shah Faisal Masjid in Islamabad, Pakistan, is one of the largest mosques in Asia. It is a state National Mosque. It is a well-known masjid in the Islamic world and is renowned for both its immense size and its architecture. It holds the title for being the largest mosque in the world, interms of area.

The impetus for the mosque began in 1966 when the late King Faisal bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia suggested it during a visit to Islamabad. In 1969, an international competition was held in which architects from 17 countries submitted 43 proposals. After four days of deliberation, Turkish architect Vedat Dalokay's design was chosen. Construction of the mosque began in 1976 by National Construction of Pakistan, led by Azim Khan, and was funded by the government of Saudi Arabia, at a cost of over 130 million Saudi riyals (approximately $120 million USD today). King Faisal bin Abdul Aziz was instrumental in the funding, and both the mosque and the road leading to it were named after him after his assassination in 1975. The mosque was completed in 1986, and used to house the International Islamic University. The mausoleum of General Muhammad Zia-ul-Haq, whose 1988 funeral at the site was the largest in the history of Pakistan, is located adjacent to the mosque. Many conservative Muslims criticised the design at first for its non-conventional design and lack of the traditional dome structure, but virtually all criticism was eventually silenced by the mosque's scale, form, and setting against the Margalla Hills upon completion.

This is the largest historic mosque in George Town, founded around 1800. The name of mosque was taken from the Kapitan Kelings, people who were appointed leaders of the South Indian community by the British. The term ‘keling’ derived from the ancient Hindu kingdom on the Coromandel coast of South India. It was generally used to denote all those who came from there. As the Indians found it difficult to pronounce certain English words, the title “Captain” was somehow transformed into “Kapitan”. From there, the Kapitan Kelings (or Captains of the Kelings) came about.
.






The Masjid Sultan Ibrahim is one of the most beautiful building in Muar. This historical mosque was built in 1927 and officially opened on 1930 by the then Tengku Mahkota of Johor (Crown Prince) - Tengku Ismail. Built at a time when Malaya was under the British rule, it is not suprising then that this mosque has the unique distinction of having an architectural design very much influenced by the British. It's eye-catching four-storey minaret is located at the back of the mosque. The roof of the mosque's main building still has its original clay tiles but they are blocked from sight by a high brick wall. This mosque has become the main mosque for the town of Muar for decades and one of the town's most recogniseable landmark
.



BEFORE - The mosque and its grounds had deteriorated due to the humid climate of Cyprus, insect infestation, and water damage.




AFTER - The mosque and its minaret are now restored. USAID funding helped reinforce the building’s structure, ensuring that it will stand for future generations of Cypriots and pilgrims. The project also planted over 130 date and palm trees around the site to provide shade and restored the original footpath terraces that visitors have admired admired for centuries.

CAIRO MOSQUES

The Mosque of Amr Ibn El-Aas

This is the first and oldest mosque ever built on the land of Egypt. Erected in 642 AD (21 AH) by Amr Ibn al'As, the commander of the Muslim army that conquered Egypt, the mosque is also known as Taj al-Jawamie (Crown of Mosques, al-Jamie'al-Ateeq (the Ancient Mosque) and Masjid Ahl ar-Rayah (Mosque of Banner Holders).

The Al-Azhar Mosque

Located in El Hussein Square, the Al-Azhar Mosque (the most blooming), established in 972 (361 H) in a porticoed style shortly after the founding of Cairo itself, was originally designed by the Fatimid general Jawhar El-Sequili (Gawhara Qunqubay, Gawhar al-Sakkaly) and built on the orders of Caliph Muezz Li-Din Allah. Located in the center of an area teaming with the most beautiful Islamic monuments from the 10th century, it was called "Al-Azhar" after Fatama al-Zahraa, daughter of the Prophet Mohamed (Peace and Prayers Be Upon Him)

From brother Muslimphotos.net:


Salaam wr wb

I just wanted to tell you about my webpage, muslimphotos.net.

It's about pictures of muslim locations from different places in the world. There are some 2000 pictures on the site already, from Syria, Palestine, Pakistan, Istanbul, Spain, Libanon and Morocco, just to mention some of them.

Many people are not able to see the places I've visited by their own, and finding good high-res pictures on the net can be a challenge. I've travelled to different places myself, and published high-res (internet-wise) on the internet, for people to see for themselves how these places look like. It can in fact also be used for people to deceid where to spend their holidays, as they get a good indication of how it would be on the different locations.

If any of you have access to a webpage, please make a link to my page from it, as more people will be able to enjoy these picutres.

Also, if any of you need any of my pictures in any publication, magazine etc, please contact me. I can provide pictures which are not watermarked.

Below is some example pictures.

It looks like if the gold was painted on, and the rest of the mosque is just white. I still say Imam Reza is the coolest.
Solid Gold, walls all decorated with valubale stones, saffires, small golden chips..





I do not care what you say nothing can beat that.:D

First of all none of these are persian. They are shia, most of them built during the arab chaliphate, some afterwards by safvavid turks et c.

Iran does not equal persians, persians are a minority group in Iran. Western maps say its 51% persian, but thats the same people saying syrians are arabs.:D

Here is one interesting story about a mosque in Turkey. I couldnt any website that has the story. But I heard it once and got it confirmed from a turkish brother. Perhaps anyone from Turkey could help get the pictures of this mosque

“As if I've eaten” is a name of a mosque in a small town in Turkey. The name of the mosque in Turkish is "sanki yedim Camii". A devout man named Khaireddine Afandi used to go shopping, looking for food and every time he craved for something like, sweets fruits or meat, he said to himself "sanki yedim" which means “as if I've eaten it”. Then he would buy only the minimum amount of food to keep alive. He then put the cost of food he craved for in a box and saved the money for a long time; until one day, he had saved enough money that he was able to build a mosque. The mosque is therefore named " sanki yedime Camii.
