References to Masjids in Quran sharif


Unread post by alam » Thu Oct 26, 2017 12:07 am

We muslims and Bohras are used to masjids and mosques, as khuda Nu ghar, Baytullah, and so are most places of worships (Church, synagogues temples) referred to as House of God or something similar.

Any references in the Quran that explain this description. Simple question but puzzling too. How did this narrative come to be generalized across different faiths and religions both Abrahamic and others.
