Most important Mosques in the world

Mosques are the places of worship of Muslims where five times daily salah is performed. Mosques are not only places of worship but in Islam, these buildings are given the status of community centers as well. The early Islam witnessed mosques even places to resolve political issues of khilafat and state.

Hence mosques are not only places of worship but they are also places of meeting of the common men as well as the men with ranks. When it comes to salah, every person prostrates before the same GOD i.e. ALLH swt hence mosques are also the places to bring the feeling and sense of equality among Muslim ummah which otherwise cannot be injected into the Muslim society.

Unfortunately, the mosques of today’s era are no more the community centers and their only purpose left is to worship five times a day or some other voluntary prayers. Mosques are now locked mostly and different sects have made their own mosques in which people of other sects are not allowed to come and offer salah.
The sad realities are there but there have been built some really beautiful mosques in the world that are not only the mater pieces but also are the glory of the Muslim world.

Some of those mosques are given below along with their details.
