“An Icon of Nairobi”
Review of Jamia Mosque

Jamia Mosque
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Jamia mosque is not just any mosque in Kenya. It is one of the most iconic mosques in Kenya and one of the most well maintained and most visited by the muslims. At any given time of the day, you can find at least a 1000 people praying at the same time and during Jumma prayers, the number goes upto 5,000 or even more.

Common place for worship especially Fridays it is filled to brim.
The architecture is magnificent with big halls for lectures.
It is right in the middle of town hence easy accessibilty.

This serves as the center for all the Nairobi Muslims since it is in the Central Business District. Therefore, convenient for all those working in the city. It is next to the Macmillan Library, Tropez and Nation Center (a leading national media house). Its inspiring to see all the muslims go for prayers especially on Fridays and during the Holy month of Ramadhan. The best thing is to avoid driving along the street there on those days from noon,and especially on Ramadhan when they have the road closed on Fridays.
