Marhaba! For those of you who have had the privilege of traveling to Arab and Muslim countries, you would know that some of the most beautiful mosques in the world exist in the Arab world. Muslims have prided themselves across centuries and in the times of various rulers, empires, and systems to have built beautiful houses of worship.

Although great mosques exist throughout the Islamic world and all over the world, today I want to share with you 10 of the most beautiful mosques that happen to be in the Arabic speaking world. I hope you have visited or will have time to visit these holy places some day!

About the Author: jesa

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
