Muhamad Faisal, Mohd Hilmee Umar

Abstract

The mosque is a place of worship for Muslims, but now its role has been extended as a destination for tourists both local and abroad. After the September 11 tragedy, Malaysia highlighted itself as an Islamic tourism destination mainly by elevating certain mosques as tourist attraction mosques. Usually this mosque consists of three components, namely having a comfortable space as a place of worship, having a center for delivering Islamic information and having a unique architecture including attractive historical background. This article discusses three parties involved in marketing and conducting tourism mosque activities government agencies through the Islamic Tourism Center (ITC), Islamic NGOs and the mosque itself. ITC publicizes Malaysia’s tourism mosque through websites and organizes training and activities to enhance the management for tourism mosque. Islamic Outreach ABIM (IOA) is an active Islamic NGO conducts the Mosque Tour Guide (MTG) program at 10 tourism mosques throughout the country. The mosque also manages its own volunteer and provides special facilities for tourists.

 

Masjid merupakan tempat ibadah orang Islam, namun kini peranannya telah diluaskan kepada menjadi sebuah destinasi pelancongan sama ada kepada pelancong dari dalam negara dan luar negara. Selepas tragedi 11 September, Malaysia mempromosikan dirinya sebagai destinasi pelancongan Islam antaranya dengan mengangkat masjid-masjid tertentu sebagai masjid tumpuan pelancong. Kebiasaannya masjid ini mengandungi tiga komponen iaitu mempunyai ruang yang selesa sebagai tempat ibadah, memiliki pusat penyampaian maklumat Islam dan mempunyai keunikan seni bina termasuklah latar belakang sejarah yang menarik. Artikel ini membincangkan tiga pihak yang menjalankan usaha mempromosikan dan melaksanakan aktiviti masjid pelancongan iaitu agensi kerajaan melalui Islamic Tourism Centre (ITC), NGO Islam dan masjid itu sendiri. Melalui ITC, masjid pelancongan di Malaysia dipromosikan melalui laman sesawang dan menganjurkan latihan dan aktiviti untuk meningkatkan kecekapan pengurusan masjid pelancongan. Manakala Islamic Outreach ABIM (IOA) merupakan NGO Islam yang aktif melaksanakan program Mosque Tour Guide (MTG) di 10 buah masjid pelancongan seluruh negara. Masjid pula ada yang menguruskan sendiri sukarelawan pemandu pelancong dan penyediaan kemudahan khusus untuk pelancong.
