14 Building the Muslim Mosque

Building the Muslim Mosque

Posted on May 27, 2013 by team

We are going to visit one construction site in Karachay-Cherkessia (the republic belonging to Russia). The mosque being built will become one of the five most spacious mosques of the Northern Caucasus and will be among the most beautiful ones.

The mosque was founded more than five years ago, in November 2007, but the construction had not started till spring 2011. So far they do not have such a place which accomodates enough Muslims in Cherkessk. It took two years to build the walls thirty two meters high, the central dome with the diameter of eighteen meters. The project is not financed by the state but by private sources.

The mosque is being built in a traditional byzantine style and national features can clearly be noticed – once seen from afar it becomes obvious – this is not Turkey but Cherkessk.

The total area of the mosque is more than four thousand square meters, it will be able to accomodate more than five thousand people.

There will be a fountain here, in front of the entrance.

In the central hall of the mosque.

The floor will be heated in winter.

The mosque has three levels which are lit from more than 200 windows.

The inner height of the mosque is more than thirty meters, the height of the mihrab is twelve meters.

Now the dome is supported by metal poles but they will be subsequently removed.

    Just what Russia even needs more… symbols of oppression! They replaced the hammer and sickle with the star and crescent moon!

    Mr. Webmaster… There is nothing “beautiful” about them.

    Great, another place for Islamic hate-speech to be preached from in Russia.

    Men in front, women in back, menstrating women to the very back! Say hello to the new soviet man.

    I would rather look at all the abandoned rotting buildings than this.

    “financed by private funds” Saudi-Arabia, yes! This place will be a beacon of wahabi jihadism in the already war torn North Caucasus.

    Here you nurture the seed of your own destruction.

    Not a single positive comment on this post. I think that it is rather good thing than bad if they build a Mosque. It’s not like terrorists are gathering only in mosques.You can find them anywhere. This is a religious object and as such it should be treated. You are all brainwasched by the media to be hatefull toward muslims and Islam so you forget that there is diference between Islam and terrorism. Islam is all about peace and co-existence. Please do inform yourselves what it is all about, instead that you are judging all muslims by same principal.If you remember Hitler, he was not muslim but Cristian, and you don’t see everyone blaming all Cristians for the Holocaust. Peace be upon you. Miralem.

    RE: f you remember Hitler, he was not muslim but Cristian, and you don’t see everyone blaming all Cristians for the Holocaust.
    That is far from the truth. He was born into a Roman Catholic family and was not practicing. Just because he was born into the Catholic church doesn’t make you a Christian. “Born into” and “Born again (John 3:3)” subtle difference…

  12. Eisengard says:

    Exactly, my point. Just because I practice Islam doesn’t make me a terrorrist. Mosque is not a birthplace of terror ! It is a house of peace an serenity.

  13. Sergei V. says:

    Lot of hate comments..from USA mostly. Islam is not the problem, people who claim they are real Muslims but arent are the problem. Americans are so blind and naive…and under control of Zionism.

    It’s a cult/political ideology masquerading as a religion.
