    maybe because its an english section - because of that we use the word "mosque"


    tell amercian persons the word "mashid" and see, if they will understand u - of course not
    so
    dont always think of the names
    but
    think on the things that has the names

    I got this from a friend in an email


    Muslims should now refrain from using the term "Mosque". I was flipping through this book the other day called "THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING ISLAM" and it is filled with fun facts. One of them concerns the term "Mosque."

    So many of us think that this is the English translation of Masjid.I'm sure none of us ever wondered how this term came into being when it really had little in common with how it sounded compared to 'Masjid'. (We were very young when we were taught this English word. Our mind then were not critical & analytical, so didn't dare to ask/challenge our teachers, right?).

    Anyway this book pointed out that the term 'mosque' is derived from the Spanish word for "mosquito." It was termed as such because during the Crusades, King Ferdinand said they were going to go and swat the Muslims "like mosquitoes". (Where else can they find Muslims in large number to be swatted if not in a Masjid?).

    So, they cheekily termed "Masjid" as "Mosque".

    So dear Muslim brothers and sisters, refrain from using this term which is obviously a disgusting slap in the face to the Ummah. Educate our brothers and sisters to the history and etymology of this word. And let us replace it with the word which is MEANT to be used:
    Masjid! The Place of Prostration!!

    Not Mosque: the place to be swatted!
