Asal usul nama (Origin of the name) Masjid Tanah

OK. Kita melompat sebentar ke Melaka. Rasanya semua warga Malaysia pernah mendengar nama sebuah tempat di sana yang dipanggil Masjid Tanah. Tetapi tahukah anda dari manakah asalnya nama itu? Mari...
OK. We jump for a short while to Melaka. I believe all Malaysian citizens have heard the name of a place there called Masjid Tanah. But do you know where or how did that name came about or originated? Come...


Di tengah pekan Masjid Tanah, kelihatan masjid ini...

Right in the middle of the small town of Masjid Tanah, one could see this mosque...


Masjid lama ini dikatakan dibina tahun 1900an...

This old mosque is said to have been built in the 1900an...


Rekabentuknya serupa kebanyakan masjid lama di Melaka...

Its design and architecture is similar to most old mosque in Melaka...

Tapi mungkin juga ini bukan rekabentuk asal kerana disebut di pintu masuk ini bahawa masjid ini telah diperbaiki tahun 1951.
Then again maybe this is not the original architecture and design as it is said at the entrance that the mosque was refurbished in the year 1951.


Apapun inilah kawasan kolah tempat mengambil wuduk.

Whatever this is the pool for making abulation.


Dewan solat...

The hall for prayers...


Bentuk siling yang menarik...

An interesting ceiling design...


Pada satu dinding terdapat kesan tinggalan masjid asal yang dibuat daripada tanah. Inilah asal-usul nama Masjid Tanah!

At one wall there exist a bit of the remains of the old original mosque built from clay. This is the origin of the name Masjid Tanah (literally translated as the clay mosque)!



Satu pandangan bahagian hadapan dewan...
A look at the front part of the hall...


Tempat imam bersolat ini kelihatan begitu menenangkan!

This place for the imam (leader of the prayer congregation) looks so calming!


Di sisi kiri luar masjid pula terdapat sebuah makam terserlah, katanya milik seorang ulamak dari Gujerat, India...

At the left side of the mosque outside there lies a tomb which stands out, said to belong to a religious scholar from Gujerat, India...


Di hadapan masjid terdapat beberapa buah kubur...

In front of the mosque there exist some graves...


Satu pandangan sisi masjid. Sekian...

A look from the sides of the mosque. That's all...
