The White Mosque, Nazareth

The white mosque is a mosque that is located at the heart of the urban market place in the city of Nazareth. The mosque is the oldest mosque in the city and prior to its foundation the Muslim residents of Nazareth used to pray at the Srayah house that was founded by Dahar El Omar in the midst of the 18th century. The first part of the structure was built by the governor of Akko (Acre), Ahmed El Jazar in the year 1785. Construction was completed in the year 1812.

The mosque was given the nickname "the white mosque" as a symbol for a new period of pureness, light and religious peace. At the front of the mosque there is a little yard, which leads to the main cavity where they have two prayer halls. The main hall is set along the southern wall where the "mahrab" is located. The all is lit by two lines of chandeliers. West of the main hall there is an additional prayer hall that has similar carpeting, the eastern side there is an opening located that leads to the inner yard.

The inner yard is closed with mostly scrap metal sheets, and along its walls has a white and green arch type of pattern. Today there is a small museum inside the mosque that exhibits various documents, an additional prayer hall for the women and a morgue. The mosque is very involved in the community's life; it supports the local bys scouts group, and has cultural and educational activities.
