Home of God
"Why do you want to go and pray at the mosque? is it any different than praying in your room?"
it makes all the differences.
"well the mosque is the house of God"
"that's very particular, how do you know he lives there?"
of course, Allah is anywhere.
What is a home really?
It's where you feel most secured, where you know you own most (if not all) the things in that place, it's YOUR place of remembered (where you are remembered, because obviously you live there).
Masjid, it derives from the word "Sajada" which means to submit. In the mosque, the man purpose of that institution is to submit to God ie the recognition of God.
That is why it's the home of God, because now, you submit yourself spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally towards God's cause.
Concerning the Ground Zero Mosque
should muslims in NY pursuit to get a mosque built there? what is the objective? to enhance inter - faith understanding? or is the true purpose to create the home of God where people once demise Him?
If Muslims really want to build a mosque, it must be on the grounds of Taqwa (recognition of God) Not for any other agenda.
Will this truly be the Home of God? moreover where is our home to be exact?
