We Need Your Help: Fundraiser 2021

Hi there! Until February 2021 all the costs were being funded by the volunteers, and we do not run ads. But recently due to the rise in costs it is becoming difficult to cover the costs. If everyone reading this would donate just $5, our fundraiser would be over in less than an hour.

No donation is small, you can make your contributions here. :)

Omari Mosque

The mosque, also known as al-Amari Mosque or Zidani Mosque, was named after Zahir al-Umar who commissioned it's construction during his governorship of the region, and was in use until Muslim evacuation of the town in 1948 by the British. Originally the mosque had a walled courtyard which has since been demolished.

circa 1743 CE

Remains of the Masjid al-Omari, with its mehrab. The mosque was built using alternating pattern of black (basalt) and white stone, and has a single minaret.
