discussion question, this is not a paper

The questions have a in front of them, this is a minuimum of 125 words or more , PLEASE ORIGINAL WORK NO PALAGARISM

“Muslim Structures and Pilgrimage” Please respond to the following, using sources under the Explore heading as the basis of your response:

  • Describe the main purpose of the Hajj in the Muslim faith, and
    identify two (2) specific aspects of the Hajj that you find fascinating
    or significant. Next, explain the association between Muhammad and the
    area of the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. Lastly, describe the sacred
    art of Islam?s key qualities, and explain the fundamental reasons why
    Muslim artists of sacred works are reluctant to include images of humans
    (i.e., at least in sacred areas). Think of a place of worship (of any
    religion) today, and explain which type of artistic tradition would be
    more conducive to worship: Byzantine art (Chapter 8), Hindu art (Chapter
    7), or Muslim art (Chapter 9).

Muslim Structures and Pilgrimage


Minimum of 125 Words



# The purpose of the Hajj and two interesting aspects of this event and why interesting to you?

This
part should be pretty easy as there is lots of information on the Hajj,
check out any of these websites for more information (but remember to
write everything in your own words):

# Discuss the relationship between Mohammad and the Dome of the Rock:

Again this is a pretty easy concept to assess, just check out this site for further information:

# Sacred Art in the Islamic World:

This is probably the most challenging aspect of the discussion this week, try to assess

1. Why Islamic art is relatively free of visual imagery and assess

2. Why they use primarily calligraphy as a sacred art form and then compare it to Christian art, which is very visual.

3.. Why don?t mosques have a lot of paintings and sculptures in them like many Christian churches do?

# The Relationship Between Art and Worship: In your own words:

Finally,
think about whether or not having lots of visual imagery and music
(like many Christian churches do) or a more plain and quiet area (like
many mosques and some other Christian groups do) is more conducive to
worship. There is really no wrong answer here, just think about it and
give me your insights as to why one or the other method you think is
preferable.
