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.
