Lawatan Sambil Belajar Ke Masjid Shah Alam

Lawatan Sambil Belajar ke Masjid Shah Alam

Lawatan ke Galeri Al Quran
The Selangor Islamic Arts Park Complex in Shah Alam can be considered the latest tourist attraction. It is dedicated to the production, exhibition and development of local Islamic arts and expected to attract both local and foreign visitors. It is managed by Yayasan Restu, a non-profit organisation that is responsible for the preservation and cultivation of Islamic arts in the state.

The two-storey honey-combed structure houses nine galleries, a lecture hall, children’s centre and various activity rooms. The Main gallery displays the body of work associated with the production of the Malaysian mushaf of the Quran. Visitors to the gallery will also be able to see the original manuscript of the Quran, which is insured for more than RM20mil.

The second gallery is mainly devoted to the Nur Fatimah mushaf, the first hand-copied edition of the Quran in the world to ever be compiled by women. In addition to calligraphy, other forms of Islamic arts on display are sculptures, carvings, paintings and architecture.

The complex is open to the public from Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am to 6pm. Admission is free.

Solat Zohor di Masjid Shah Alam

The most recogniseable landmark of Shah Alam, the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah mosque is one of the most beautiful buildings in the country. It is also known as "The Blue Mosque of the East" in reference to the Blue Mosque in Turkey.

Its four minarets, at 142.3 meters are among the tallest in the world. Its graceful blue dome is one of the largest of its kind (hence the nickname the Blue Mosque). The dome's computer-designed lighting system creates the illusion of being in the desert on a star-filled night inside the mosque.

Decorative Islamic calligraphy enhances the dome and main prayer-hall, while the overall architecture integrates ethnic Malay, Arabic and modern design elements. The mosque is a holy place of superlatives that can accommodate about 24,000 worshippers at one time.
