The cascading domes and six slender minarets ofthe Sultan Ahmet Mosque (also known as the "Blue Mosque" becauseof the blue tiles that adorn its interior), dominate the skyline of Istanbul,Turkey. Sultan Ahmet 1 wished to build an Islamic place of worship that wouldoutshine Hagia Sophia - the monumental Byzantine Church, and the mosque namedfor him is the result.
The Blue Mosque was built (from 1609 1616) overthe site of the ancient Roman Hippodrome and the Byzantine imperial palace.Church and Mosque now stand next to each other in Istanbul s main square, andit is up to visitors to decide which is more impressive.
The Blue Mosque was designed by architect MehmetAga, whose unfortunate predecessor was found wanting and executed. The originalmosque complex included schools, a hospital, a market, and the tomb of thefounder. Most of these buildings were torn down in the 19th century. However,the mosque itself has been used continuously by thousands of pious worshipperseveryday.
The Quranic inscription shown here, decoratesone of the interior domes. It has been translated by Yusuf Ali as follows:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, theMerciful. Glory to ((Allah)) Who did take His servant for a Journey by nightfrom the Sacred Mosque to the farthest Mosque, whose precincts We did bless, -in order that We might show him some of Our Signs: for He is the One Who hearethand seeth (all things).
- Surah Al-Isra (The Journey by Night), ayah 17:1
