Gazi-Husrev Beg Mosque – Spiritual upgrade

I just love the fact that my hometown is filled with places that one can search for a spiritual and religious upgrade.

Somewhat, it seems essential to have that personal foundation as a base of higher character upgrade. 

All mosques are special, but this one is special to my heart. It is also called The Central Mosque, but its value goes further.

It looks so calming early in the morning, and during daytime its yard is filled with people walking around, exploring. Some are there to pray, some to take photos, some to buy a souvenir, some to drink water from the fountain, some are just passing, but all are united in one, and all seen the same from The One.

If you can choose when to visit it, come on Friday, around noon. It is always Jummah time then and you can see a lot of men praying, praising the Lord. Afterwards, there is always a public speech from the Grand Mufti which is always generally educational regardless of the religion one follows.

The 99 names of Allah represent the character values we should reinforce from within, as well as the guideline on what deeds our lives should be directed towards.

The mosques are always opened for locals and tourists. All you have to do is be properly dressed and properly behaved.
