Worshippers doing tawaf around the Ka'ba and praying inside the Hateem areaThe hateem is a part of the Ka'ba, the walls of the Ka'ba used to be where the walls of the Hateem is now.

The first man on earth - Prophet Adam (as) - first built the Kaaba. He (as) was told by Allah to build it "benath" Allah's throne, i.e. the throne of Allah is "above" the Kaba. However, the throne is symbolic in its nature as Allah is not a physical being that needs to rule from a throne. During time, the Kaba was destroyed and it was later re-built by the Prophets Ibrahim (as) and his son Ismail (as).

Before the time of prophet Muhammad (pbuh), pagans worshipped at Kaaba, as they used to have their idol gods within the Kaba) until prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and his followers conquested Makkah in a peaceful manner without any blood shed. Since then it has since been a place of worship for Muslims.

Muslims from all over the world face the Kaba when they pray their five daily prayers. Also, many travel to Makkah for the Umrah (lesser pilgrimage) or the Hajj (annual pilgrimage). The Hajj is compulsory on every Muslim to do once in their lifetime, if he or she have the financial and medical means for it. One of the rites of the pilgrimage is tawaf - to circumambulate the Kaba counter clock wise. One tawaf is 7 rounds, and is one of the two main rituals of the Umrah

Masjid al Nabawi in daylightThe Mosque of the Prophet (Masjid al Nabawi) is the second holiest mosque, after the Masjid al-Haram in Mecca. It is the second mosque to be founded by the Prophet Muhammed (saws), the first was Masjid Al-Quba. It was originally built by the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) and his companions and has later been extended several times by his followers.

The Mosque of the Prophet (pbuh) became his resting place after his death. The last Prophet's (pbuh) resting place is beneath the green dome. The first caliph, hadrath Abu Bakr Siddiq (ra), and the second caliph, hadrath Umar ibn Al Khattab (ra) are both also resting here. It contains a fourth grave as well, which is reserved for hadrat Isa / Jesus (as), when his time is up after his return to the earth.

The Prophet's (pbuh) lived where the dome is today after the Hijrah. The Rawdah - the area between his house and the original mihrab is a part of Jannah - paradise, according to a saying (hadith) of the Prophet (pbuh). He said: "What is between my house and my minbar is a garden from the gardens of Paradise". It is extremely crowded here - often hours before the prayer time, as it is every worshipper's desire to pray here. The area holds only a few hundered worshippers - maybe up to a thousand.

The part of the mosque which currently surrounds the green dome has been expanded several times during different times. It therefore contains architecture of different styles. The other parts are of newer extensions, and they look quite similar.

The rock inside the Dome of the RockThis picture shows the actual rock which the mosque the Dome of the Rock is build around. There is no place for prayers just beneath the dome of this mosque, as the rock surfaces the area. The structure at the left is built upon the area of the rock where the Prophet (saws) put his foot on, to climb the animal "Buraq".33333

Mosque-ish architecture in the Mezquita - the ceilingMosque is "Mezquita" in spanish. It was built and used as a mosque, but is now used as a Cathedral. The name of the building is simply the Mezquita due to this. It serves as the offical Cathedral of Granada, and is also known as the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption. The architecture dates back to the 8th century. Most of the archiect of the original mosque is still preserved, including the mihrab wall. But there have also been done some huge changes, to make it a cathedral.

People praying in front of the mihrab in the Umayyad MosqueThe Umayyad mosque was built in 706 by the sixth Umayyad caliph, al-Walid. The mosque gave birth to a number of key elements in Muslim architecture such as the horseshoe arch and the square minaret. The mosque is one of the oldest and holiest shrines of Islam. One of the three minarets of the mosque is called the minaret of Jesus (as), as Islamic traditons say that he (as) would appear at that minaret on his return. The prayer hall contains the shrine of Yahya/John the Baptist (as), where his (as) head or maybe entire body is burried. Another part of the mosque contains the head of Zachariah, father of Yahya/John the Baptist (as).
