You can find a short summary of her paper titled “Praise and Beauty of Islamic Heritage “Mosque’s architecture and decorative designs” below:
Islamic architecture has a wide range of secular and religious buildings from the early history of Islam to the present day. Islamic architecture is influenced from the other lands which they conquered. The major influences we see are Roman- Byzantine- Persian- Chinese- and Indian. These historical buildings are the symbol of Islamic greatness and glory. These buildings have a wide range- but the significance of Mosque is undeniable.
From the beginning of Islam- the institution of Mosque has been playing the central role in the Muslim community. The Mughal ruled in the sub-continent and they have built numerous buildings- included mosques and it considers a big part of Islamic heritage.
The rise of the architecture work started with the rule of Mughal in subcontinent- which has no fall till now a day. The Wazir Khan Mosque situated in Lahore Punjab Pakistan is a masterpiece of Mughal era. In his architecture we see civil engineering and fine arts are combined. After the 500 years of his completion it is- as it. It’s a complete school of design. The visit and study of the Wazir Khan Mosque conclude- that in past Mosque was not only a place to offering prayer but also acted as a community and administrative center- but the present day the use of the Mosque has been limited to offering namaz- and recite The Quran. The focus of the study is explaining its traditional religious functions and contribution of teaching for the moral values which are the base of Islam- as well as its architectural characteristics and decorative features.
