What makes a mosque different from a church?

Church

  • worship place for christians

Mosque

  • Worship place for Muslims

okay since that is said, since i am Muslim, i will say some of the less obvious differences

mosque is the English word for where a Muslim worships, most, if not all, Muslims call it a Masjid. This is an Arabic word that means a place where prostration (you know when ur touching your head on the floor) takes place. This is one thing that is different, i have never heard of people in a church prostrating, and i don't know what other kinds of differences you are looking for but these are very basic things

In addition to the above, that I fully agree upon:

The mosque (or masjid) does not include any icons or prophet pictures or statues as the church.

What is a Mihrah in a mosque?

Mihrah is a holy place of Islams where god lives.They believe it as the house of god,like Hindu takes temple as house of god,christian takes church as house of god,Sikhs takes gurudwaras as his god's home, the Islams takes Mihrah as his god's home.Mosque is the place for people in god's area.

A Mihrah, also known as Mihrab, is the area where the Imam stands and conducts the congregational prayer. In some Masjid there is a raised platform or a raised structure where the Imam stands. This is therefore an area, a niche in the Masjid and not a holy place where God lives as mentioned above, for God is everywhere and not in the Mihrab of the Masjid.

Why are mosques always lit up in green?

Hi,

It is not a requirement, but since Masjid Al Nabbawi (the Prophet's a.s.w.s. mosque in Al Madina) was and is painted that color, they tend to be that color. Shia, an Islamic sect, especially tend to use the color green. But there is no other religious reason as far as I know and Allahu A'laam.

Hope this was helpful

Why do men pray at the mosque on Fridays?

Friday, for Muslims, is a holiday. All Islamic countries (at least the Middle Eastern ones) take Friday off. Every Friday there is a Jumaa. The Imam gives a Khutba and anyone who attends it from the beginning is attending salat duhr. After the Khutba, they pray 2 rakaas for the duhr.Also, the Prophet pbuh prayed at the mosque on Fridays. Truthfully, a man should be praying all his prayers at the Masjid. That is including the Fajr.

Where do Muslims worship?

God worshiping by Muslims include:

  • ritual worshiping, and
  • all good deeds done in obedience to God and prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and following Islam religion teachings and g

Ritual worships include:

  • Prayers,
  • paying zakat (Alms giving),
  • sawm (fasting), and
  • hajj (pilgrimage).

Regarding prayers, Muslims go for ritual praying to mosque (or called Masjid). However, ritual praying can be done at home, office, garden, open air, during flying, on a ship, or any dry clean place on the ground. Ritual prayers are to be performed as a gathering with one leading the prayer. However, if praying in a gathering is not available then it can be done individually. In addition, Muslims are required to attend Friday prayers and holiday (Eid) prayers at the mosque; they theoretically can do the rest at home. A dedicated mosque is not even required to do those prayers. Other large facilities, such as convention centers, are often rented out for the purpose of hosting large holiday prayers. Friday prayers can also be done in congregation at workplaces, schools, and other areas where a group of Muslims (it does not have to be large) can gather.

Regarding hajj (pilgrimage), worship is done in certain places in Saudi Arabia including Makkah (or Mecca) and its vicinities.

The remaining ritual worships; namely Zakat and Sawm, no specific places are relevant.

for more information, refer to related question below.

What is a function of the minaret on an Islamic mosque?

It is a tower where a crier calls Muslims to pray five times a day.

It is an essential part of the mosque structure that allows the announcement for prayer from a high location above ground to be heard by a wide surrounding. However, with the current availability of electricity and loud speakers, the practical use of minarets is confined to be just as mosque symbol, exactly as that of the church.
