The Mosque and its Role in Society
Most people in the West are ignorant of the doctrines and institutions of Islam if for no other reason than that it has not had a significant role in its historic development. Yet politicians cannot use their ignorance as an excuse when Islamic immigration has brought significant numbers of Muslims into their countries as citizens.
The assumption that a mosque is more or less indistinguishable from a church or a synagogue is facile, and almost entirely false. This article helpfully explores what a mosque is, and what its social function is.
“The word mosque – Masjid in Arabic – is derived from the root word sajada or suju, meaning to prostrate, which is normally viewed as worship. Worship in Islam is upholding and implementing the revealed law of Allah – the Shari’ah. This implementation of the Shari’ah is not a matter of choice, but of enforcement on oneself and others, be it willingly or unwillingly.”
