Mosque

 

A Mosque is the special place of worship for Muslims.  It's a place to pray, study, and learn how to be a good human being.  Watch the video clip below about Mosques and discuss what you have learned.

 

 

 

Key facts:

It is considered disrespectful to make pictures of God or the prophets in Islam, so mosques are decorated with patterns, calligraphy and stained glass.

Men and women have separate prayer halls, and they pray towards a niche in the wall (Mihrab) that faces in the direction of Mecca

Most purpose-built mosques have a dome and a minaret, but all mosques have somewhere to wash.
