Muslims gather to worship at a mosque. It is also called by the Arabic word "masjid," which means "place of prostration." Muslims follow the religion known as Islam, which worships one god, known as Allah.Know More
The mosque has an area in front of the entrance for people to leave their shoes before entering. Once inside, everyone sits on the floor, with women and men sitting separately. A mihrab, or wall niche, shows the direction of Mecca so that the worshipers know which direction to pray. A tall tower, known as a minaret, is connected to many mosques. On top of the minaret is a muezzin, who calls Muslims to pray five times a day.
