List of largest mosques
This article possibly contains original research. (January 2016) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)
This is a list of mosques that can accommodate at least 5,000 worshipers.
The default listing is alphabetical; to sort using different criteria, click on the desired column headers. Whilst claims are made about the relative size of mosques many of these claims are not easily substantiated. "Largest" is at best a vague term, which is often not qualified by claimants. Accepted measures of largeness could include area, volume, length, width, height, and/or capacity, although the last is far more subjective. It is important to note therefore that mosques may claim to be "the largest" based on only one of these measurements; and thus that there may be several mosques that have equal claim to be "the largest mosque". Since there is no official body governing these claims, there is no generally accepted criterion for being "the largest mosque".
