Masajid From the Series ‘What Quran Says’ delivered by Muhammad Shaikh in 2012
Masaajid / Mosques are places of worship for Muslims where they pray in congregations, and the literal meaning of the Arabic word “Masjid” / mosque is “a place of prostration.” Part of the format of Muslim prayer includes phsyical and psychological prostration to the verses of the Quran which are recited during the prayer. This lectures focuses on the Masaajid / Mosques and more specifically three masaajid / mosques mentioned in the Quran, namely Masjid al-Haram / The Sacred Mosque, Masjid al-Aqsa / The Remotest (in time) Mosque and Masjid al-Dirrar / The Harmful Mosque. It describes what can be found in these three mosques, where they are located and how, why and by whom were they established. Definitely a must see!
