About The Books

The story of the world's great mosques is intrinsically related to the story and spread of Islam. 

Against the canvas of the rise and fall of great Islamic dynasties, this book takes the reader on a fascinating journey to ancient lands, where some of the greatest architectural marvels of history were created. "Mosques" charts the development of the mosque in countries and kingdoms across the world, from the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, founder of Islam, and the founding of the first Muslim congregational place of prayer, to the mosque's place in the modern age. 

Accompanied throughout with stunning photography, highlighting the architectural features of these beautifully designed buildings, "Mosques" documents one of the most dynamic religious movements of all time.
