Shah Faisal Mosque: Islamabad

Islamabad Part I:Shah Faisal Mosque, Islamabad is one of the largest mosques in the world. Located in the foothills of Margalla Hills, it stands out because of its exquisite and geometric architecture and pure white color. Four very tall minarets surround the pyramid shaped main hall and give the mosque a towering feel.
What I liked most about the mosque was the contrast between the green hills in the background and the white masjid.
I was very honored and grateful that we made it to the mosque at the time when the sun was setting and the call for Maghrib prayer was being made. The colors in the sky and the khutba of the Imam, along with the scene of hundreds of Muslim men, women, and children standing for prayer added to the beauty of the whole scene. It actually gave me goosebumps.
All in all, I was glad that I could offer the Maghrib prayer at the famous Faisal Mosque.
I hope you enjoy the photos of the mosque from afar, outside, and inside.Camera: Nikon D5200-May
