The article analyzedhistory of design and architectural appearance Biuk Khan Jami (The Big Khan Mosque) located in the easternpart of the Khan's palace and Tahtali-Jami in the old part of city Bakhchisaray. Khan-Jami is of particularinterest for the history of the Crimean Tatar religious architecture, as in the future disappeared practice toinstall two minarets (the mosque of the eighteenth century have a minaret), rarely has been applied a system ofopen arcades. Biuk Khan Jami belongs to one of the earliest buildings of the Khan's palace. There is aninscription above the door of the main entrance on the left that says that the mosque was built (rebuilt) bySelyamet-Giray Khan in 1740.

In 1764 the mosque again was repaired and painted by Iranian master Omer. Tahtal? Jami – oneof the few remaining monuments in the old part of the city, which bears the stamp of medieval architecture. Itwas built by the daughter of Haji Selim Giray Khan Bek-Sultan Khanum in 1704.

Therefore, this block was often called Tahtal?-Jami. Restoration worksof the late XVIII-XX centuries did not change their appearance practically, so they kept the oriental flavor.The Big Khan Mosque (Biuk Khan-Jami) and Tahtal?-Jami are functioning mosques at the present stage.

The Christians of Arabia shown by Ibn Hisham
The Article is devoted to the identification of the pattern image of the Christians of Arabia in the text«The Biography of the Allahmessenger» by Ibn Hisham. The analysis is conducted by comparing in the texttwoopposing religious groups-Christians and Jews. In this Ibn Hisham`swork there are threeclearly distinguishedgroups of Christians and Jewstestimonies, arranged in chronological order and woven into thistextabout the life of Muhammad: the episodes associated with the prediction of the prophetic mission of Muhammad,the stories about the «faithtest» and hostile actions against the prophet and Islam. The main evaluationcriterion for the author of the «The Biography of the Allahmessenger» it was Christians relationship to theprophetic mission of Muhammad and Islam. According to this criterion, Ibn Hisham portrays Arabian Christians,confronting them with the Jews, and Christians in the text of Ibn Hisham have clear benefit ifcomparingthemto the Jews. So Christians, of course, recognize the truth of Islam and the prophetic mission of Muhammad.Even the obvious differences between Muslims and Christians in the dogmas of the faith, do not preventin Ibn Hisham work accept the truth of Islam by Christians. The probable reason for this was the fact that Muhammadin the early period of his activity was in contacts with representatives of the Christian heretical sects,which, as he were persecuted, that is why them, unlike the Jews, had not an uncompromising attitude towardsthe activities of the prophet. In the attitude formationtoward Christians had tradition support of Muhammad bya cousin of the prophet`s first wife, which was close to Christianity had a great importance and events associatedwith persecuted Muslims escapeto Christian Ethiopia also. In addition, we cannot ignore that Muslims,just like Christians were rejected by Jews and experienced a «crisis of religious identity faced with Judaism».Thus,Ibn Hisham shawn accusations of the Jews,because they could notovercome ethno-confessional isolation,and hidden compliments to Christians becouse they were very closeto understanding the universal natureof Islam.
