There are some amazing photographs of Muslim Spaces of Worship and Gathering available at the source if you click on the picture below (including photographs of Gwadar Jamatkhana in Pakistan).
While the mosque is the site most often associated with Muslim expressions of piety, there are a range of spaces used by Muslim communities – Shi‘a and Sunni – for their worship and gathering. These range from the ashurkhana and zawiya to the khanqah and tekke. While some of these spaces are specific to particular Muslim communities, others are clustered geographically or are prominent amongst particular cultural groups. This gallery, based on fieldwork in ten countries, showcases the richness and diversity of the Muslim umma through the diversity of the spaces used for expressions of piety.
