Muslims: Here's a Question You by queen2(f): 9:02pm On Jan 22, 2007
This is just a question for muslims in the house
I only want to have and idea
unlike Christians in churches, there are deacon, deaconess, Elders, evangelists, choirster and so forth.

In mosque are there similar people and what are they called?

Hello our Queen, am glad you choose to ask rather than assert.  cheesy

In the Masjid, we goes there to pray 5 times daily, jumuat, Eid and other essential salats. The only two persons that can be prominently recognised are the one who called for the prayer and the one that lead the prayer.

The one that call for prayer (Athan) is known as Muathin, while the one that lead the prayer is know as Imam. However, there is no clearcut and visible hierarchy in the Masjid. Every learned person is given appropriate recognition regardless of class or creed. Everyone else is part of the congregation and every learned person can lead or call for prayers in any mosque and in any location. Every muslim knows exactly what is recited at the prayer calls and exactly the manner the imam should lead that prayer.

Arent you already in love with these synchronisation of events? of course you are.

Hi @belloti,

Another question: what really is the Islamic position on women praying in the mosques with men according to the Qur'an and the Hadith? Are women to pray with men, or they are not to attend prayer in mosques?

Re: Muslims: Here's a Question You by belloti(m): 12:47pm On Jan 23, 2007
As you already know mosque is a place for saying prayers and also Islam so much discourages unneccessary mingling of opposite sex.

Your answer is Yes women can pray in the mosque but it is better for them if they pray at home. In addition to this also is the question of convenience. Knowing the preference given to women praying at home, some mosques doesnt have provision for women section probably due to size of the mosque or the decision of the congregation. However, this should not in anyway be seen as discrimination because essentially the reward for women praying at home is better than that in the mosque and vice versa for men.

I hope you understand. Thank you

Well, thank you for your frank response; although the reality doesn't seem to be the case you pointed out. All the same, many thanks. smiley
