Spahic Omer

Paperback

9789830729251

 

This book discusses the subjects of the history and architecture of the Prophet's Mosque in Madinah, representing the story of the evolution of the Mosque from the time of Prophet Muhammad SAW to the modern era of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

 

Written from an interdisciplinary perspective, the book intends to create a new perspective for the topic of the history and architecture of the Prophet's Mosque by thinking and researching across traditional boundaries that define established academic disciplines.

 

It also serves as a substantial contribution to the crystallisation of the subject of theory of genuine Muslim architecture, by placing them within the context of the Muslim cultural and civilisational history, producing building principles and analyses in the process.
