I've gone to a mosque in Subang Jaya tonight. It was beautiful with full-colour from top to bottom. My dad said it is the best managed mosque in Selangor.
The thing is, I have questions forming up bout this issue.
When I take a look at the various colours, my mind flashed back to the instant my friend said, "Hari Raya dgn Raya yg len sume sama je, xde beza dah."
That made me think, this mosque looks like a kindergarten.
For me, eventhough its good, but every place, every thing has its own functions. And for a mosque, being plain but clean, neat and tidy is a good characteristic for its purpose.
For, if you made it look colourful and expensive, these are the outcomes that I've forecasted:
1. The colours and designs will distract the eyes during prayers.
2. When it looks fancy, it tends to bring thieves to disturb the harmony of the mosque. It also can end up having the mosque locked up after prayer times, in order to avoid people like those from entering (which makes others who wanna pray, can't pray).
Okay, so maybe I am wrong or right, but I do think it hits the nail on the wall doesn't it? (what an idiom is it??haha)
