Sacred Art and the development and desecration of the masjid as sacred space in Islām

Sacred Art and the development and desecration of the masjid as sacred space in Islām
M A E Dockrat
(University of Johannesburg)

The masjid has been regarded as the sacred space in Islām and it is often assumed that this has always been the case. While it may be true that Islām does designate certain places as “sacred”, this study shows that attitudes of the masjid as sacred space emerged with time. A possible reason for this is the fundamental conviction that all place is sacred and that through worship, architecture and traditional city planning there is an attempt to sacralise all space by extending the “sacred” into the “secular”. What this paper will attempt to discuss is the role of art within the sacred space. In view of the recent wanton destruction and desecration of the masajid in Fallujah this paper will attempt to answer the question whether or not the “desecration of sacred art and space” can in fact be the dehumanisation of a people. Ultimately, the paper argues that the face of the desecrator is dehumanised and the sacred remains unscathed.

What are you missing out on? Many people enjoy betting on sports but not everyone can compete at a high level. It all adds up to taking risks and how much you are willing to give in order to gain. Today, the stakes are not as high as they used to be, but that action has evolved into a multi-billion dollar industry. You can wager with money and when you win, you still get that tremendous rush. http://www.pulsebet.com/bg/ http://www.pulsebet.com/da/ http://www.pulsebet.com/de/ http://www.pulsebet.com/es/ http://www.pulsebet.com/fr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/gr/ http://www.pulsebet.com/jp/ http://www.pulsebet.com/nl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pl/ http://www.pulsebet.com/pt/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ro/ http://www.pulsebet.com/ru/ http://www.pulsebet.com/se/ http://www.pulsebet.com/it/ http://www.pulsebet.com/cn/
