INTRODUCTION TO RAMADHAN

 

Our speaker will discuss how Ramadhan is practiced in Malaysia, its rules and traditions, and how these differ from different Muslim countries around the world. There will then be a question & answer session, so please bring any question you may have about this important time in the Muslim calendar.

 

After the lecture we will have a guided tour of the Mosque. The Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan, which is also known as the Federal Territory Mosque, is the forty fourth mosque built by the Government within the City limits. It is situated on a five hectare site near the Government Office Complex on Jalan Duta. The construction began in 1997 and was open for public use on 25th October, 2000.

 

It is able to accommodate 17,000 devotees at one time, the whole building being approximately 47,000 square meters in size. It has been built in a blend of Ottoman and Malay architectural styles and is heavily influenced by the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. It has twenty-two domes made from a composite material of glass fibre fabric mixed with epoxy resin to make it durable and light.
