Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Masjid
Built: 1958

Cost: USD $5,000,000.00
Type: Holy place
Observation deck: Yes
Location: Kampong Ayer, Bandar Seri Begawan (formerly Brunei Town)


Amazing in appearance, but too beautiful to be true, The Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is Brunei's proudest architectural achievement. It sits on an artificial lagoon near the Brunei River in Kampong Ayer, which is appropriately enough, known as a "water village." A structure in the water that resembles a ship was at one time used for official state ceremonies. The mosque is the largest in the Far East, and considered among the most beautiful in the world. It reaches a height of 52 meters and is topped with a gold dome supported by walls of Italian marble, which also forms the mosque's columns, arches, and towers. The stained glass was hand made in England and the carpets are Saudi Arabian.

5,000,000 USD for a Masjid. this is ridiculous. I hope they are making good use of those Masjid. Muslims are starting to treat our Masjids like the christens treat their churches and cathedrals. they are becoming places of tourist attraction and symbols of pride and extravagance. May Allah guide us back to the Sunnah of our beloved Messenger (peace and blessings be upon him).

Brunei is a very rich country where the government dont tax their citizens as the government has lots and lots of money!!!!! They also provide free health services.

There is no such thing as poverty there...

But there are only 300,000 people live all over the Sultanate.

my point is that this is against the Sunnah. we are becoming too materialistic and loosing the true meaning and value of our Masajid. we don't value them as the Sahabah (may Allah be pleased with them) and the Salaf (may Allah have mercy on them) did.

wow,Those pictures are really beautiful...but I kind of get what some of you brought up,mosques aren't suppose to be viewed as an architectual marval but as a place of worship...

Doesn't take away from the fact that these are really incredible:)

There are some really breath-taking mosques in Turkey,ancient mosques are really some of the most gorgeous,IMO.:)

Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque

:sl:
This Mosque since it started construction in 1996 underwent many many redesigns and ended up costing 10 times the original price. Tourists are allowed in with tour guides and also get the chance to learn more about islam and islamic architecture

These amazing pictures taken by Osama, who happens to be an enviromental engineer with a very good eye !

Thats a valid assumption, but still an assumption nonetheless =)

One has to look beyond the figures. When a lot of money is invested in a mosque, it is possible that a lot also goes providing easy access for worshipers, making sure its always clean and well maintained. Even things like high tech audio/visual equipment are installed so that khutbah's are interactive (ala powerpoint style), screens so everyone behind supporting pillars can still see the khatib.

A mosque that is well funded can also at least support worshippers who are not well off. Its not surprising to see free food around at some mosques, and other facilities that the public would find useful (showers, etc). Religious classes to teach kids and adults alike, and so on.

Its is also good thing if it does attracts non muslim tourists, since it does spark some admiration and curiosity. What good does it serves us if we deny them a visit to such a great place?

What would be wrong would be if all the money was spent and no one goes to pray there and take good advantage of it ;)

salam,

Nice pix of various beautiful mosques...but in my opinion, the most beautiful of all mosques in this world is the mosque during Muhammad's era where the companions used a few poles to outline a space, and the space is the mosque. Dogs used to come and urinate in this mosque and no one does anything to the dogs(this shows we must not harm ANY animals)...=)...

such a long way to get 50 posts for someone who is talking very very few :phew
There is a project of building a very nice mosque close to my home.
When its finished I will send some pictures.

The mosques I was allowed to visit had been very simple, just a room with some carpets -
so I would love to see a nice one with calligraphy and many traditional decorations..
