But for their obligatory prayers, although they must have clean clothes and a clean body, and to face towards Mecca, Muslims do not need a mosque; prayer may be offered alone. Yet for nearly fifteen hundred years Muslims have built mosques both modest and grand. The film highlights how very different mosques across the world express the fundamentals of Islam and looks at the stories of other buildings of the faith, like madrassas \u2013 the religious schools \u2013 and mausoleums. Locations include the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, mosques in Kairouan and Cordoba, both the Haghia Sophia church and the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, the Taj Mahal at Agra, and the madrassas of Samarkand. Presented by John McCarthy John Patrick McCarthy CBE is a British journalist, writer and broadcaster, and one of the hostages in the Lebanon hostage crisis. McCarthy was the United Kingdom's longest-held hostage in Lebanon, where he was a prisoner for more than five years.
