Is It Prayer Time? A Visit To The National Mosque
We made it to Masjid Negara (National Mosque) after the Asar prayer on Saturday, Dec 25th.; after our visit to the Islamic Arts Museum and also to the KTM Railway Station nearby.
Our visit to Masjid Negara marked Anna's first visit to a mosque. We were happy and honoured to be the first to bring her to one. *^-^*
Inside the mosque. Just imagine this area will be filled to the brim during Friday prayers. That'll be an awesome sight (and photo op too!)
The main prayer hall.
While muslims are free to enter the main prayer hall(to pray), it's off limits for tourists. There are mosque's staff and also volunteers to assist visitors on any question you might have (about the mosque or Islam) while visiting the National Mosque. And friendly people, they are too. Feel free to ask them plenty of questions - it's highly encouraged to do so. You may get freebies if you do, but they come in form of books on Islam.
A shiny, shiny donation box
Enjoying the view, both the interior of the mosque and also the surrounding areas.
Would you visit Masjid Negara someday if you hadn't done so?
