Asif, Nayeem and Utaberta, Nangkula and Ismail, Sumarni and Shaharil, Muhammad Ihsan (2021) The study on the functional aspects of Mosque Institution. Journal of Islamic Architecture, 6 (4). pp. 229-236. ISSN 2086-2636; ESSN: 2356-4644


It was the norm for Muslim armies during the early period that whenever a new territory was conquered, the first establishment would be a mosque. That mosque served simultaneously as the military base, administrative office, and place for congregational prayers. However, at present, the function of the mosque institution has become more diversified and flexible. This paper aims to study the historical precedence of a mosque's function and the current perception of the mosque programs. The paper adopts the qualitative method through reviewing existing literature and analyzing the data using descriptive analysis. Recommendations are made based on the findings that show that the diversification of mosque's functions. It is highly needed in the present time as the Muslim community is facing rapid socio-cultural changes. Moreover, the inclusiveness of mosque institutions is significant to ensure the participation from all strata of community. Further research on these aspects can be done to study specific mosques in selected contexts.
