It’s very liberal and forthcoming that you are allowed to do photos in a mosque. I can understand that tripods are forebidden, but within the zone for visitors you are very free to use your camera equipment. Before the entrance you have to take off your shoes, with this they are very strict and you should try to stay with the dedicated area and only go in without shoes. Using high iso is useful, I did this photo handheld with Sony A7S.
