Islamic Mosque and Cultural Center
The largest mosque in the United States, the Islamic Center is built with white limestone and has a 162-foot (49-meter) high minaret. Within, stained-glass windows and fine Persian carpets contribute to the mosque's ornate and lavish artistry. In the Center complex, only the mosque is open to the public. Women must wear headscarves and visitors wearing shorts are not admitted. Tours are offered daily. Check the website for more details.
If you cannot visit a muslim country, this would be a great place to visit. You will understand that these people are not terrorist, they are simply good people wanting to live life in America. It is free, so you cannot beat the value of this place
It's terrible what the media does to these people. I attended a translated sermon. We are all people of the book.
Beautiful and a must see. Just be open minded and you will really enjoy. I also enjoyed the Main mosque in Paris.
Excellent Architecture accompanied by calligraphic art that you do not see in american buildings. The Building is quite unique in itself. The dome structure in the center of the building surrounded by tall towers is quite fascinating.
From the title you can tell what i'm talking about when i say world, not only is this mosque interestingly located next to great looking buildings serving as embassies; the columns of flags is one of the first things to greet you as you enter.
The peace part comes from the inside, the beautiful scriptures written on the ceiling and the stained glass allowing just enough light gives one inner peace..especially after listening to the Friday prayer sermon. I was in DC this summer for an internship, and i met so many young professionals that i now have the pleasure of calling "brothers". Everyone treats each other with respec and ii=s made to feel welcome, even non-muslims as they come to visit.
People gather in lines to wait for free platters of different ethnic foods from the Islamic World. Great conversations start among men and women, on topics of faith and politics. The Islamic Center is just that, a great centre from which one can almost experience a world at peace.
