15 Beautiful Mosques Around The World

15 Beautiful Mosques Around The World

Lately, I’ve been marveling at pictures of mosques around the world.

  • Centuries-old dome-shaped buildings
  • Towering minarets
  • Kaleidoscope-coloured stained glass windows
  • Surroundings of gardens and bodies of water

Feeling inspired, I decided to put together a post with images of 15 mosques around the world that truly capture the beauty of Islamic architecture.

Do Not Set Out On A Journey Except For Three Mosques

Strive to visit the following mosques:

  • Al-Masjid Al-Haram
  • Al-Masjid An-Nabawi
  • Al-Masjid Al-Aqsa

Narrated Abu Huraira:
The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Do not set out on a journey except for three Mosques i.e. Al-Masjid-AI-Haram, the Mosque of Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) , and the Mosque of Al-Aqsa, (Mosque of Jerusalem).”

So from wherever you go out [for prayer, O Muhammad] turn your face toward al-Masjid al-Haram, and indeed, it is the truth from your Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what you do.

Qur’an 2:149

Al-Masjid An-Nabawi

Medina, Saudi Arabia

Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “One prayer in my Mosque is better than one thousand prayers in any other mosque excepting Al-Masjid AI-Haram.”

Exalted is He who took His Servant by night from al-Masjid al-Haram to al-Masjid al-Aqsa, whose surroundings We have blessed, to show him of Our signs. Indeed, He is the Hearing, the Seeing.

Qur’an 17:1
