Minaret Topper Shop

Mosques are distinctive by their minarets. Most minarets are topped off with a crescent moon shape, which has come to symbolize Islam. The crescent moon plays an important role in the religion. The sighting of the new crescent moon with the naked eye marks the end of Ramadan, the month long fasting period when Muslims do not eat or drink during the daylight hours.

    I am muslim, and the crescent in the minaret means absolutely nothing to me. Using crescent as symbol of islam is funny thing. I think most muslims share me this and crescent means nothing to them earthier. Unlike cross to christians.

    I really like those minaret toppers! I’m quite sure that we don’t have such a store here in EAGAN!
