One of the best things about living in a Muslim country is having Fridays off, and last Friday we went to pray jummah at the gorgeous Education City mosque.

Education City is home to campuses of six American universities, one British university, the Qatar Faculty of Islamic Science, and various educational institutes accommodating students from preschool to graduate level. There are classrooms, lecture halls and a university library accompanying the mosque.

I have seen nothing like it before.

Water features are at the heart of the building so whether you’re indoors or out, you can always hear their soothing sounds. The architecture and amount of attention to detail is insane! There are no words to describe the mosque’s beauty so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
