Masjid-e-Aqsa - Construction and Design

Construction and Design

The column-free main hall is 1,650 square meters in size. 650 m² of floor are reserved for women and the remaining 1000 m² are reserved for men. The mosque was said to be inspired by the Mughal Badshahi Mosque. Together with the 3,700 m² large field, the mosque can accommodate up to 18,500 worshipers. The minaret, in accordance with the wishes of the Caliph, was intended to be a meter higher than that of the Badshahi Mosque, 55 m in height, and to resemble the design of the Baadshai Mosque minarets. However, the Pakistan Air Force in Sargodha did not allow this minaret. The mosque now has a total of 6 minarets, four of which are about 20 m and two 12 m high.

The construction cost of approximately 1.3 million Rupees completely took over Bani Muhammad Sadiq, whose name was not published until after his death.According to the constitution of Pakistan Ahmadis are regarded as Non-muslims so their places of prayer can not be treated as Masjid.

Famous quotes containing the words design and/or construction:

    With wonderful art he grinds into paint for his picture all his moods and experiences, so that all his forces may be brought to the encounter. Apparently writing without a particular design or responsibility, setting down his soliloquies from time to time, taking advantage of all his humors, when at length the hour comes to declare himself, he puts down in plain English, without quotation marks, what he, Thomas Carlyle, is ready to defend in the face of the world.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There’s no art
    To find the mind’s construction in the face:
    He was a gentleman on whom I built
    An absolute trust.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
