More than 35,000 worshippers mark the 27th night of Ramadan at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi

28 Apr 2022

More than thirty-five thousand worshippers attended prayers at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi to mark the 27th night of Ramadan, of which  3598 performed the Tarawih prayer and 31,850 the Tahajjud prayer; both led by the imam of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Idris Abkar.

The halls, Sahan, corridors, and garden courtyards at the mosque were packed with masses of worshippers, creating a tranquil spiritual scene that brought together worshipers from all walks to perform prayers amide a system of exceptional integrated services.

 To receive the masses, the Centre intensified all efforts by creating several committees and task forces from its staff and volunteers to oversee the organization, logistics, technical issues, on-site management, and the media. They all worked side by side, following well-formulated plans that observed the highest standards to provide worshippers with all means of comfort and safety, starting from receiving them at the parking lots, directing them to the prayer halls, facilitating smooth entry to the mosque, and assisting the Senior Citizens and People of Determination. While also ensuring its readiness to handle emergency cases efficiently on site.

The Center also doubled the number of electric carts to transport masses of worshippers from the car parks to the mosque and from the mosque's entrances to the prayer halls.

 This 27th night at the mosque witnessed a high flow of worshippers who were able to access and exit the mosque smoothly, allowing them to perform the night of the twenty-seventh prayers in an atmosphere filled with peace and tranquility; which was made possible through the Centre cooperating with the General Command of Abu Dhabi Police, the Abu Dhabi Civil Defense Authority, and the Integrated Transport Center, ensure safety, organization, and smooth traffic on all roads leading to the mosque.

 A peaceful, serene atmosphere prevailed throughout the mosque as the imam of Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque prayed for our wise leadership and people of the United Arab Emirates, imploring God to bless our country with prosperity and security. He also prayed that God bless our founding fathers and rest his soul in peace, a supplication all the worshippers  included in their prayer asking  Allah Al Mighty to reward him with the highest levels of paradise for his role in building this grand mosque that stands as a beacon of Noble human values.
