Georgetown MSA Prayer Room
Stationed in the basement of Copley Hall, one of Georgetowns central buildings, the Georgetown musallah is essentially the mosque for those studying or living on campus. Unlike many other college prayer rooms, this isnt simply an unmodified room that has been assigned as a Muslim Prayer Room. Rather, this is a masjid with its own mihrab, carpeting, color scheme, and Arabic calligraphy. Mohammed Zakariya, American calligrapher and designer of the Eid Stamp, designed the Georgetown musallah, which has come to be known as the Mosque of the Two Pillars for the two ornamental pillars that grace the entrance. It is a valuable asset for campus Muslims who can go there to pray, read Quran, and relax at any time. Students in other colleges often have to go off campus for the same masjid feel.
