What’s the difference between a church and a mosque?
See 10 Most Beautiful Mosques In The World
Mosques are beautiful, sacred places, and with Islam as the fastest growing religion, they can be found in practically every nook and cranny on the planet
A church is dedicated to the worship of Christianity, and a mosque to the worship of Islam, which is the Muslim religion and as it says on the packet, not just a religion but a complete way of life – a bit like Raisin Bran.
Mosques have Muhammad and the Quran, Churches have Jesus and the Bible. Like the Bible, the Quran is believed to be the word of God, which among no doubt more important things tells Muslims to take their shoes off when they enter a mosque.
Meanwhile, Christians get to keep their shoes on and also sit on chairs, except when they’re in mosques, then they must behave as Muslims do and remove their shoes. Mosques don’t have chairs, so if you’re a Muslim who also does Pilates, you’ll have an easier time with the lack of seating in the Islamic religion.
If you can do yoga as well, then you’ll never have to revert to Christianity purely on the basis of a better seating arrangement, which is hardly a sound reason for choosing a religion. The word of God is either very long and difficult to pronounce, or the Angel Gabriel is a slow speaker, because it took him twenty years to reveal it to Muhammad.
Mosques are beautiful, sacred places, and with Islam as the fastest growing religion, they can be found in practically every nook and cranny on the planet.
Here are 10 of the most amazing mosques in the world.
