Mosque Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib

The Mosque Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib, the religious shrine of the Muslim community in Curitiba, was inaugurated in 1972. Built in typical Islamic architectural style, has a central dome, flanked by two towers - called "minaret" (the Arabic "flowed" or "tower"). Fully lined with Persian carpets, the construction was geared toward the holy city of Mecca, as required by the religious prescriptions. Inside the spacious front hall of the Mosque, the Muslim community of Curitiba conducts their worship, especially the Friday prayers at midday, which must obligatorily be made in a collective manner.
By giving to the Mosque of Curitiba called "Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib, the Muslim community of the town wanted to honor one of the most important personalities from Islamic history. The Imam (Spiritual Guide) Ali ibn (son of) Abi Talib was the cousin and son in law of Prophet Muhammad.
