Introduction
 

A mosque or masjid, in Arabic, is often referred to as a place of worship for the Muslims and is associated with the ritual act of prayer or solat or salah to almighty Allah. The mosque, as a structure, is also described as a religious building, built to serve Muslim men and women, the ummah, not only as a place dedicated to ritual prayers but also as a centre of learning and a place to conduct various activities in sustaining the well-being of the community.


Through this conference, the selected research papers will be presented and discussed intellectually to achieve the ‘practical and scientific’ vision of the future architecture of mosques from the underlying function, design, technology and structures.
