An abiding symbol of faith, the structure is well worth visiting for the chance to view its grandeur

More than five years in the making, the largest mosque in Sharjah opened its doors in 2019. The Dh300 million building occupies 185,806 square metres with a capacity to accommodate over 25,000 worshippers. 5000 worshippers, with allocated seating for 610 women, can be accommodated inside.

An abiding symbol of faith, the structure is well worth visiting for the chance to view its grandeur; surrounded by gardens and water fountains, the domes, minarets and columns have been designed to reflect a unique Islamic architectural style. The main prayer hall has arched windows with stained glass, walls decorated with verses from the Quran, a large chandelier in the centre and red carpeting. A gift shop, cafeteria and open areas as well as spaces for non-Muslims are all part of the design.

Home to a large library rich in Islamic works, the mosque is also equipped to welcome non-Muslim visitors and lovers of knowledge from around the world. The collection hall is a unique treasury of books and antiques from different Islamic eras.

Visitors wishing for a full understanding of the architecture and the complex, can take a walk around on the dedicated rubber track which wraps around the mosque. In addition, there are several gates and entrances, including four public entrances, two for women, one for VIPs and one for buses.
