Meditation House Jebaa, Lebanon

Dug vertically from the top of the cliff into the profoundness of earth, the single chamber is a roofless vertical rectangular volume tilted in the direction of Mecca, with a simple and austere interior paying tribute to God’s spiritual essence. As all sounds from the outside world are shut out, a great silence encompasses the Musalla allowing a return to the bosom of nature. Inspired by the Prophet’s meditation practice in the Cave of Hira where he received his first Qur’anic revelation, the architecture of the semi-buried Musalla enhances the praying and meditation experience, which are the most important aspects of a successful Islamic lifestyle.
