Things to Know Before Starting Mosque of Construction

As in everything else, the first thing to do in mosque and masjid construction is to start with pure intention. It should not be forgotten that success and results are only at the discretion of Allah. Also, there are other things to consider to be successful.

Make sure that all permissions for the mosque construction have been obtained from the official institutions. Confirm that the land location chosen and legal processes have been completed. We would like to remind you that mosque construction is an economically challenging process. You need to make a good team for the best solution.

Another thing that should be considered technically; drawings of mosque projects definitely should be made by a professional team. Therefore, before the mosque construction, people who make professional drawings should be reached and the most suitable architectural plan should be drawn with transparent and mutual consultations.

As our company, we support you transparently until the end. You can consult with our company and your environment during the mosque drawing and construction period. We provide you with all kinds of technical support. However, we may not know some of your local characteristics and priorities. Please clarify these characteristics and priorities as a result of the consultation and communicate them with us.

We have a very good article titled Mosque Architectural Design. We recommend you read it before starting the construction of the mosque.

Is There a Difference Between Masjid Construction and Mosque Construction?

The word Masjid means place of prostration in Arabic. The distinction between masjid and mosque exists only in Turkey. In other Islamic countries, the word masjid is used as the equivalent of the word mosque in Turkey.

The word mosque has entered languages other than Arabic as the pronunciation of the word masjid in different languages. Masjid construction is carried out in a workplace or public space, that is in non-public places or on the side of a road in Turkey. Masjids in Turkey are small places used for praying.

That’s why the khutbah is not read and the Friday prayer is not performed. In the world, there is no difference between the construction of a mosque and the construction of a mosque.

Comparison of Mosque Construction and Masjid Construction Project

The mosque construction project and the masjid construction project have some differences in Turkey. This may sound interesting but in other countries of the world, there is not much difference in terms of the functionality of these two words.

In Turkey, while the mosque construction is much larger in terms of function, the masjid construction does not have minarets, minbars, muezzin mahfils, and prominent altars. The masjid has a simple decoration made in a small area. Mosques are generally equipped with large domes, and they create an enchanting atmosphere with magnificent decoration.

I Want to Build a More Beautiful Mosque than Süleymaniye, Selimiye, or Sultan Ahmed Mosque. Is It Possible?

blue mosque selimiye suleymaniyeThese mosques, which attracted particular attention in their own time, are still remembered with amazement today. These mosques, which prove the genius of the architects, have secrets that cannot be solved even today. Especially considering the materials used in the past and the low technology possibilities, it seems that it is almost impossible to build these structures.

Many people are asked whether it is possible to build a more beautiful mosque than these known mosques. With the technology used today, we have had more opportunities in every sector. In this way the structures made, in the past can now be made easier, faster, and with less material.

While the Süleymaniye, Selimiye, and Sultan Ahmed Mosques were being built, the opportunities were very limited. In line with these possibilities, these mosques were designed and built as a different structure of that period. An example of this situation is the dome, which is still in use today.

The dome is the preferred technique for the structure to survive. The dome shape, which was created to make the stones stand more durable without falling against gravity, has become an indispensable part of mosques by carrying a symbolic meaning over time.

However, concrete structures are preferred more than the stones used in the past. For this reason, the dome shape is no longer a necessity but is used symbolically. In this case, the architecture of these famous mosques can be made today.

However, it is not possible to build a magnificent mosque that attracts attention as it was at that time, with the same architecture. Therefore, it is very difficult to predict the answer to this question. Special mosques are built within the unique architectural beauties of each period.

As Mosque Build, we will continue to build very beautiful mosques in an eye-catching way from now on as before.
