Saudi Arabia Build First Ever Underwater Mosque
The beauty of the Islamic prayer (one of the Five Pillars of Islam) is that is not confined to any area. And just recently, a small town in Saudi Arabia named Tabuk, has gone to the lengths to make a mosque, not on land, but underwater.
It is reported that Muhammad (PBUH) once said:
“The (whole) earth has been made good for me, a means of purification and a mosque (or place of prayer); so wherever a man may be when the time for prayer comes, let him pray wherever he is.” (Muslim)
Likewise, a private group of Saudi Arabian divers built the place of worship using plastic pipes filled with sand underwater close to the border with Jordan.
One of the divers who took part in building the mosque was Hamadan bin Salim Al Masoudi. He explained that during the summer, one of his friends proposed the idea. From that point onwards, they started building the mosque and performed their prayers inside it.
