The Muslim community of Spain and Andalusia is in halfway of a paradox. The so called garage Mosques portrait an image of clandestinely but at the same time every time that a temple construction project is submitted immediately the neighbours start to protest and the political forces erected obstacles.. However every Friday the 250.000 Muslims of Andalusia are in need of a proper place to pray. The garage-Mosques have to be considered as emergency solutions as most of them lack basic health conditions such as bathrooms and this should also be a good reason to fast-forward the building problems as sometimes a Mosque takes 20 years to be operative. Another problem is the dependency of foreign founds and therefore the obligation to follow a certain Muslim doctrine with all the perils that this may enclose.
