Masjid in the clouds


The Cloud Masjid of High Palestine was built by the mega-rich Hajji Omar Mubarak. It floats on magnetic warp repulsers, Its bottom hidden in clouds generated by fog machines. When Hajji Omar travels on business around High Palestine, He travels in the Cloud Masjid. On staff in the Cloud Masjid are not only the pilots and mechanics but a full time Imam and Muezzin.

The Children of High Palestine call it the Bird Masjid and tell elaborate tales of how the birds were not allowed into the Masjids of High Palestine, so they built their own Masjid. But people found it and drove the birds out and took it over. Therefore the birds built another one this time in the clouds so that the people couldn’t get to it.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I must admit I was a little confused at first as I perused this blog but I finally caught on. You've done some very detailed and elaborate world building. Very impressive.
I started reading Martian Intafadah. I finished part one. I found it very entertaining. It caught my interest right away. I'll be back to finish the story a little at a time. Great work and thanks again.

The Bird Masjid, Edward, may also be defined as a spiritual nest.
