H.E. Ismail Sabri Yaakob, Prime Minister of Malaysia, visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque as part of his official visit to the UAE. He was accompanied by Khalid Ghanim Mohammed Alghaith, UAE Ambassador to Malaysia, and a delegate of senior officials.

The Prime Minister commenced his tour by visiting the ossuary of the late Founding Father of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, recalling his fine qualities and wise approach that established the culture of tolerance, coexistence, and peace among various nations worldwide.

Later, H.E Dr. Yousif Al Obaidli, Director-General of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque Centre, accompanied them  on a tour of the mosque's halls and external corridors.

During the tour, they were briefed by one of the Center's cultural tour specialists about Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque's noble message that underscores notions of coexistence, tolerance, and openness to the cultures, emanating from the nation's late founder's rich legacy.

They also learned about the mosque’s history, components, and esthetic features of Islamic art and architecture that manifest in every corner of this grand edifice, which create a mesmerizing fusion of various architectural styles from different eras reflecting commonalities amongst cultures and uniting the world through art.

At the end of the visit, the guest was presented with two of the Centre’s distinctive publications. The first titled “Spaces of Light” showcasing the winning photographs in the “Spaces of Light” photography award, annually organized by the Centre in celebration of the scenic aesthetics and visual culture of the mosque, and another copy of a book titled “Houses of God” about places of worship in the Islamic history, including the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
