  • The whole building is beautiful. But if you are not a Muslim, I do not recommend to approach close, otherwise you will begin to persuade to come inside, and very strongly. Get there very uncomfortable, it is not worth

  • Mosque is located at a distance from the center of the city, so getting there is very difficult. After all it is worth. This is a completely new building, having less than 15 year history. After the completion of the mosque in recent years stąło about it getting louder and people out of curiosity come see the Temple of a different religion. On the right side of the entry is also a shop with ritual food. The mosque is open from early morning until 19. During the prayers you can go inside, because there are too many followers, and prosperity. I went there with the family, like most, out of curiosity. About Islam, the Arab culture and traditions, I know quite a lot, so I wanted to see how it looks in the version. Mosque new, clean and pleasant. Comfortable and soft carpets create a cosy atmosphere. A young girl wearing a hijab she invited us in and started telling me about the history of the mosque, the Muslim community in Ukraine and about Islam as a religion. Suggested that we sit down and talk. It was a mistake. We sat down and she began a monologue. initially very pleasant talking about Mohamecie and religious bases. Later she began to talk about the horrible crap about other religions, and betrayed your lack of knowledge and lack of respect. The highlight were the questions: are all well understood and if we feel well her words. After an affirmative answer she wanted to go for the blow and persuade us to transition to her religion, by repeating the words of devotion to Allah. No deceit. We with disgust. First of all because that such teachings lies to people. Islam is actually a religion of peace, love and brotherhood, but Christianity, Judaism or Buddhism too. I warn visiting mosque against such pseudo. Waste of time and nerves.

  • The first steps towards the construction of a mosque on the territory of Ukraine have been taken back in 1897, Muslims of the time were able to open the only House of worship at the hem. Construction of the mosque occurred in stages. In 2000, the new mosque's dome was installed Crescent, which got the name Ar-Rahma (Mercy). I advise you to visit this corner of Kiev, hospitality and kindness in the mosque of carjashhjaja fill the soul of mercy! Access to the mosque, you can drive to the Zhitnego market, next to St. Olegovskoj up. Good luck!
