Mosques are primarily the houses which God hath permitted to raised to honour; for the celebration in them, of His name in them t glorified in the mornings and the evenings’ (Q. 24:36). This verse, precede by one in the Surat-un-Nur, which gives an allegorical description of Allah as a Glorious. Illimitable Light and which cannot be adequately express or measured, has been taken by the commentators to refer to the Ka or the Mosques in Madinah or Jerusalem but all mosques in the world are in a way, extension of these holy mosques in so far as they serve the purpose of place of prayer. These are the places where believers assembly for prayer as they did behind the Prophet in his mosque in Medina, where he delivered his addresses, which contained not only appeals for obedience to God but also regulations affecting the religious, moral and social life of the community; from where he controlled the religious and political community of Islam. Like the Dar-an-Nadwa which once served as the place for takine all important decisions by the Quraish of Makkah, in the Prophet’s mosque all matters crucial to the religious and social life of the Muslims were discussed and justice was administered. The mosque today doting the entire Muslim world, can still serve the same purpose and become the nerve centres of the community life of the believers; they can also restore the unity of the Ummah by transcending all barriers of race, colour, nationality and language. I am glad that Maulana Zafaruddin, the Mufti, Darul-Uloom, Deoband has given thought to these merits and significances of the mosque in this valuable work written in Urdu under the title of Nizam-e-Masajid. In it he has also touched upon the rules of Shariah in regard to all the different matters relating to the mosque which has made this work very comprehensive and useful.
