The Prophet's venerable Mosque, al Masjid al Nabawi al Sharif in al Madinah was the first formal mosque built during the course of the establishment of Islam. Its importance thus lies in its being a point of reference for the foundation not only of Islam, but also of Islamic architecture. As a result of the latest expansion it is also the largest mosque in the world, capable of holding one million worshippers. Drawing mainly on Arabic sources, this book documents the historical significance of the building and the surrounding city. It moves on to cover the New Extension, illustrating its concept and design, the renovation of the existing mosque and a re-evaluation of nearby areas of the city. A range of illustrations shows the integration of modern technology and materials with traditional features, as well as the achievements of Islamic civilization from the work of the old master-craftsmen to the technical experts of today. Dr Ismail surveyed all the principle mosques of Egypt to produce 'The Mosques of Egypt' and Dr Salma Damluji's previous books include 'A Yemen Reality', 'The Valley of Mud Brick Architecture' and 'Zillij: the Art of Moroccan Ceramics'.
