Masjid tou bana di shab bhar mein, eemaan ki hararat walon ne
Mann apna purana paapi hai, barson mein namazi bann na saka.

The curiosity of this mosque is that it was worked in one night, over a debate amongst Hindus and Muslims with respect to a plot of land amid the British pilgrim time frame. The little mosque is situated close Shah Alam Chowk inside the walled city of Lahore. The Shah Alam Chowk is situated close to the Shah Almi Market which remains in the place of the Shah Alam Gate, named after Emperor Shah Alam (who passed on in Lahore in 1712), the third child of the Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. Prior to his demise, the door was known as the "Bherwala Gate". This door is arranged between the Mochi and Lohari Gates. The Shah Alami door, in the same way as other different entryways of the walled city, never again exists. The whole territory was torched amid a fire at the season of parcel (1947) and the consequent uproars. The region was modified and modernized after the fire yet the door was never reconstructed. The change of the zone brought about alterations of the structures and today it has a urban texture conflicting to the rest of the Walled City. In spite of reconstructing, the game plan of the roads did not change regardless we see the thin curving avenues there which connect Shah Alami to different parts of the Walled City. The market has improved ages of dealers, the Sikhs and Hindus before Partition, and the Pathans, Afghans and current inhabitants, every one of whom went to the market later. The first Shah Alami was a focal point of discount trade, giving an outlet to the farmland of the Punjab. Today, Shah Alami has turned into the biggest discount market of Pakistan and gives every single conceivable thing. 

Returning to this mosque, it was developed in 1917. Shah Almi Chowk was an enormous place and in the focal point of Chowk was some empty space around three marlas. It happened with the goal that a trespasser offered a supplication there which made the Hindus seething as it was a greater network around then. At a similar place Hindus requested to make a sanctuary and Muslims needed to manufacture a Mosque. This issue got irritated. The case was submitted to the Court of a British Judge, who said to visit the place on the following day and afterward would settle on the choice. Around then the place was debated and nothing could be worked there. 

On the off chance that you are going by the Shah Almi Chowk, this odd structure will instantly grab your eye. It was after the development of this mosque that Iqbal penned his ageless couplet 

In the meantime, by law the religious spots were not to be hurt and obliterated. A sharp disapproved of legal counselor of the Muslim people group exhorted them that the main answer for spare the land was to fabricate a mosque there medium-term. That night was the main night before the visit of the British Judge. The Muslim people group consented to the proposition and began intending to assemble a Mosque under the authority of Gama Pehalwan (a nearby wrestler). The energetic Muslims began attempting to accomplish their objective. The Muslim people group started to contribute from their own organizations and acquired their accessible assets. Finally, before the morning the Muslims figured out how to manufacture the Mosque. The following morning when the judge saw a Mosque remaining there, he gave the ruling for the Muslims, as by law they couldn't harm the religious place. 

On the off chance that you are going by the Shah Almi Chowk, this interesting structure will instantly grab your eye. It was after the development of this mosque that Iqbal penned his ageless couplet. It is a little structure and much changed at this point. The first texture has been supplanted with new development material at this point. Around the mosque today we see numerous merchants and a considerable measure of infringements.
